Michael Thomas fantasy outlook: Start him.

Michael Thomas put up another empty performance on Sunday. But that was a product of the whole offense floundering more than any deficiency from Thomas. 

With Cooks really coming up short week after week, I think Thomas is the Saints’ most consistent receiver. And he’s got the tools to win against great CBs. So as long as he’s featured in the game plan, he’ll get his.

I said it last week: he can do it all. He’s a goal line threat, a possession receiver, a deep threat. He’s got great hands, great route technique, great LoS technique. He can create yards after the catch. And he’s got Brees’s trust. 

Solid WR2, in my books.
