It is impossible to know what Thomas will look like until we see him back on the field. He’ll present risk even when he gets there, of course, after multiple setbacks in his path back from an ankle injury that initially appeared in Week 1 of 2020. Adding to the risk is a new QB who has been erratic when healthy (especially compared with Drew Brees) and is coming off an ACL tear.
Fortunately, drafters are collectively wary for just those reasons. Thomas is going low in WR3 territory in both FFPC and Underdog drafting as of this writing. That makes him worth considering, though there are too many questions for Thomas to be a “smash” pick even at that level.
