Michael Thomas Fantasy Football News 2020

Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle, hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bears. He at least got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday.

We already know Saints WR Michael Thomas will miss today's game against the Panthers. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, there's also "a real chance he will not be able to play" against the Bears in Week 8.

His absence would obviously continue to leave targets for the rest of the offense -- but also likely lower the fantasy ceiling for QB Drew Brees.

Saints WR Michael Thomas (hamstring, ankle) has been ruled out for this weekend’s game against the Panthers. He tweaked his hammy on Wednesday and didn’t practice on Thursday or Friday. That makes Thomas iffy even for Week 8. With WR Emmanuel Sanders (COVID) also out, New Orleans is down to WRs Tre'Quan Smith, Marquez Callaway and Deonte Harris. Smith is the only viable fantasy play. RB Alvin Cook and TE Jared Cook should get target boosts with Thomas and Sanders out.

Regardless, he should be back after New Orleans' Week 6 bye.

The Saints have downgraded WR Michael Thomas (ankle) to out for Monday night's game against the Chargers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
