Michael Thomas is coming off the worst season of his career. Thomas played week one before missing six games and returning hobbled in week 9. Thomas then played a six game stretch where he had no touchdowns and averaged 70.2 yards per game. Who is the real Thomas is a question the market is asking. The guy who averaged 150 targets, 117.5 receptions, and 1378 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns per game in his first four seasons, or the guy who returned from multiple injuries to gut it out in the hopes of getting Drew Brees another ring. One concern about Thomas is the loss of Drew Brees. In his 70 career games, Thomas has played with Brees in 60 and without Brees in 10. In the 10 games without Brees, Thomas has averaged more PPR points per game (18.74 to 18.51), receptions (7.7 to 7.22), targets per game (9.6 to 9.37) and yards (92.3 to 83.78). The only difference has been the reduction in touchdowns to .3 from .48. Thomas is the type of talent where you do not worry about who his quarterback is. UPDATE: Thomas had ankle surgery in June and is likely to miss at least the first month of the season with a four month return to play timeline.
