Official Michael Thomas, WR NO: Didn't help you make the playoffs, but hopefully can help you win them


Recommended Posts

I agree something is up.  If it was a discipline move they could recover from it would be a 1 week slap on the wrist.  This seems like more.  Brees may hang it up, so they are assessing long term. May be done with him.  Just speculating.  As a Brees owner I hope he comes back

They move Thomas around.  I think they may actually throw the ball more in this game.  I don't know why or how you would sit Thomas in the playoffs in a high scoring game like this

Ah yes, like the hot/crazy curve for dating. 😋

Oh please his last three weeks were 5/89, 7/87/1, and 8/89/1

Questions on the trade rumor. who on earf would want his contract and why would they be keeping him off the field?  Don’t you want to showcase him if you’re trying to sell?

Hypothetically, if it’s anywhere close to done, you wouldn’t want to risk him getting a new injury or re-aggravating an old one. It would ruin the potential trade. You don’t need to showcase a guy like MT, really. He’d have to take a physical to finalize any deal that was agreed to anyways.

I can't get any decent offers for Thomas. Everyone wants to counter, replacing MT with Julio. That's not what we're doing here. Or try to unload 2-3 trash bags + Swift type deals.

Pot committed at this point I guess.

Exactly.   I have to hold at this point.  If he comes back at top form I will have a team hard to beat.  If not I'll roll the dice.

Having Thomas, Evans, Cooper and K.Allen I thought I was going to run away with this in a redraft.

Lamar, Saquon, Dalvin, Austin, MT, Lockett, DJM, McLaurin, Kittle

 

had guys saying they are quitting after this year because nobody will beat me.  Traded saquon for miles sanders and Boston Scott after injury.  3-4.   But second in total points despite it all.

That's nothing.

Went in to this year with owners threatening to quit because of the dynasty team I had built with Lamar, Dalvin (out), Saquon (out) traded him for Sanders (out), Ekeler (out), MT (out), Lockett, DJM, McLaurin, Kittle (out then out again).  3-5

Michael Thomas (hamstring, ankle) is practicing Wednesday.

Thomas practiced last week before ultimately missing Week 8 against the Bears, but being out there on a Wednesday would suggest his chances of suiting up against the Bucs this Sunday are much higher. Emmanuel Sanders and Marquez Callaway also practiced Wednesday.

seems like Sanders is a better bet to play rn than Thomas (limited again)

he was quite productive before he hit the Covid list

@JeffDuncan_

56m

Drew Brees on Mike Thomas & Emmanuel Sanders: “It will be great to have those two guys back and their playmaking ability in the lineup.”

And as a follow up to this here we have Payton this morning also speaking in terms of "are" not  "if/when"

 

@MikeTriplett

8h

Sean Payton on getting Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders back in the lineup for the second half of the season: "I'm excited these guys are back, and certainly there's additional targets. Now it's up to us to be more consistent and take advantage of it."

I own Thomas on a 1/3rd of my dynasty leagues but believe me when I say up to this point on the whole I've been glad he's been out. My reasons are not worth delving into, just worked out better for me on the whole, but it's getting time now were I'd like to see him return. But so far his absence has worked out almost ideally.

It's been more work than I normally find enjoyable but drafting Thomas-Julio-Godwin-Sutton has made for an interesting year. 20 games missed by 4 of my starters. But should be fine, everyone gets healthy I'll be carpet bombing the league down the stretch.

If Thomas is on the field he's in my lineup.

I've said the same thing already a few times this year but mainly due to being in a lot of leagues in a COVID/heavy injury impacted year. I generally consider fantasy football a labor of love, but this year just mainly labor.

And I'll start Thomas as well if he's active and based on Brees and Payton's comments I'll be stunned if he's not.

for me personally I think I just had a malaise about any football this year. a) pandemic, didn't think there would be a season, and b) four league members quit over the summer bc of protests bleeding into sports.

we normally have about as much turnover as the Packers have a general offering of stock. had zero interest in recruiting managers with the world turned upside down.

 

 

though I remain hopeful Thomas will get on the field and immediately start beasting again,  we are getting close to the point where it feels like an AB / Flash Gordon situation of "just ain't ever gonna happen this year." I don't think that is the case at all but it's hard not to entertain those kind of thoughts.

In redraft I tried like crazy to trade for Thomas through the first 6 weeks.  Now, I am glad I got rejected on all trades.

In dynasty I had him as WR1 before this year.  With Brees not looking normal and Thomas having these injury/attitude issues he is dropping quite a bit for me.  He will also be 28 going into next year.

Saints' Michael Thomas: Should be ready for Sunday

(3 hrs ago) Thomas (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable, but he appears on track to play in Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, according to Katherine Terrell of The Athletic.

While he never returned to full practice participation, Thomas did make it through limited sessions Wednesday-Friday without any report of a setback. Fantasy managers should continue to keep an eye on the situation, which could get dicey if the Saints treat Thomas as a game-time decision before their 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff. It sounds like it may not come to that, but we don't know for sure just yet.

 

I don't know. Even if he had no injury designation Sunday morning, don't think I'll feel comfortable. Considering adding Tre'Quan
