2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
We all remember who Michael Thomas was. We just can't be sure who he is. The big, physical playmaker who started his career with four straight 1,000-yard receiving seasons has now missed most of the last two campaigns, including all of 2021 due to an ankle injury that has required multiple surgeries. He did not participate in team practices this Spring, and while videos have surfaced showing him doing sprint work, and team officials are saying he'll be ready for camp, it's just not reasonable to think he's going to throw the pads on and go back to being the NFL Offensive Player of the Year (2019).

When he's healthy, he's a beast. The three-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro will go across the middle, make plays on contested balls in traffic, and can run after the catch. He can single-handedly change the way the Saints play offense. The drafting of fellow Ohio State Buckeye Chris Olave, and the signing of veteran free agent Jarvis Landry will certainly cut into some of his targets, but it will also relieve some of the pressure on him to contribute right away while he re-acclimates himself to game conditions.

Two years is a long time to be off a football field, and his boy Drew Brees isn't back there chucking the rock anymore, so I need to see Thomas in action again before I start pushing him up my board. Right now, he's a WR3 for me with obvious unlimited upside. But I wouldn't expect too much too early.

Jarvis Landry lands in New Orleans
One-year deal
By: Mike Krueger | Thu May 12, 10:00 pm

New Orleans
The New Orleans Saints are continuing to revamp their wide receiver corps, as five-time Pro Bowler Jarvis Landry is set to join the team. Landry appeared to confirm the homecoming by posting a social media video Friday with highlights of himself and the team. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The Saints will have a new look to their receiving corps with Michael Thomas set to return from his ankle injury, rookie Chris Olave and now the veteran Landry rounding out the top three. This move is downer for the fantasy values of all three receivers. Landry is coming off his worst season as a pro (52-270-2) that saw him miss five games due to a sprained knee.
