From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 16): Thomas might actually have a higher floor with the Saints unlikely to pull away from any opponents while Drew Brees is out, but there's no way that losing Brees is good for his fantasy value.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 1 vs HOU (13 / 10 / 123 / 0 rec)

Another week and another 10 catch, 100-yard performance for Thomas. He continues to be Brees favorite target and can lineup anywhere on the field and run any route. Thomas caught 10 of his 13 targets and made big chunk plays all over the field. He continues to be the most dangerous on short crossing routes and quick out routes 10 yards down the field. His longest play of the game was a 24-yard catch and run down the sideline to help setup a red zone chance for the Saints. Thomas also played a big role in the final drive where he grabbed an 11-yard reception to push the Saints over mid field and setup the next play to get into field goal range. Thomas did not find the end zone this week and was double covered in the red zone and goal to go situations. Thomas is a lock to find the end zone several times this year with the sheer volume of passes coming his way. If Ginn can stay healthy, teams will not be able to double Thomas or provide help over the top as much and it should open things up even more. Look for Thomas to have another big week next weekend against the Rams.
