Michael Thomas fantasy outlook: Start him.

Is Michael Thomas not the most capable rookie this team’s had in a long while? He can really do it all.

I said just last week that he’s still not at the level of WR1, “especially in such a multi-faceted offense.” But to be honest, he sort of is. He’s not Brees’ third-down guy, but every week you get the sense that the HoF QB trusts this guy more and more. And really, like I said, what can’t he do?

His biggest value is his ability to be a goal line threat. He’s got the hands to make difficult catches, the body and route running to score with slants and fades, and he can break tackles like few WRs in the league. But he also puts up big yardage by being involved in nearly every phase of the offense. AND he’s still an emerging deep threat. He’s going up against a relatively weak secondary. Start the man.
