The Saints and WR Michael Thomas have agreed to a 5-year, $100 million extension that makes him the league's highest-paid WR. He gets $61 million guaranteed, which is the most in NFL history for a non-QB. Thomas will end his brief holdout and is safe to target in the late 1st or early 2nd round of fantasy drafts. He's finished 7th, 6th and 6th among WRs in PPR points through 3 NFL seasons.

The Saints are holding WR Michael Thomas out of Monday night's game against the Chargers after he got into an altercation with a teammate at practice this weekend, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It's a tough break for fantasy owners (although we still don't know if Thomas was medically cleared from his ankle injury to play this week). 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. Thomas gets a Week 6 bye and should be ready to play come Week 7. Tre'Quan Smith and Emmanuel Sanders will again serve as New Orleans' top 2 WRs vs. L.A. tomorrow.

Update: The Saints announced that the “change in [Thomas'] game status is not injury related.” We'll see exactly what that means.

Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Chargers. ESPN's Mike Triplett believes there's a "good chance" Thomas returns for this one. Pencil him into fantasy lineups, but make sure you have a backup option from either this game or Tuesday night's Bills-Titans game.

Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) remained limited in Friday's practice. We'll see what he does tomorrow and then how New Orleans lists him on the final injury report for Monday night's game against the Chargers.

Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) was limited in Thursday's practice. He put in 3 limited workouts last week before missing the Lions game, but Thomas seems to have a good shot to return for Monday night's game against the Chargers. We'll get another update tomorrow.
