  • Saints' Michael Thomas: Solid showing in loss

    Thomas secured four of six targets for 53 yards in the Saints' 26-9 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

    Thomas led the Saints in receiving yards on a day when a less-than-100-percent Derek Carr averaged only 3.4 yards per attempt. The veteran wideout has yet to turn in anything resembling one of his trademark performances of seasons past, but he's at least remained healthy for the first four games and has seen no fewer than six targets in any contest. Thomas' next opportunity to build on what is now a 22-219-0 line on 32 targets comes in a Week 5 road matchup against the Patriots.

  • Saints' Michael Thomas: Logs six catches in second half

    Thomas gathered in six of nine targets for 50 yards during Sunday's 18-17 loss against the Packers.

    After being targeted twice during the first half, Thomas caught his final six targets from backup quarterback Jameis Winston, who had to step in during the third quarter for injured starter Derek Carr (shoulder). All six of the veteran wideout's receptions came during the fourth quarter as the Saints tried to defend the 17-0 lead they carried over from the first half. Thomas was a consistent short-to-intermediate target for Winston while second-year wideout Chris Olave helped stretch the field vertically. Olave finished as New Orleans' leading receiver in terms of yards (104) and targets (11), though he was targeted one fewer time than Thomas in the second half. Carr is believed to be dealing with an AC sprain in his right shoulder, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, which shouldn't be season-ending but could cause him to miss time moving forward. Should Winston step in as QB1 over the next few weeks, Thomas could stand to benefit while seeing more targets as a short-yardage security blanket behind Olave.

  • Saints' Michael Thomas: Hot start in Monday's win

    Thomas caught seven of nine targets for 55 yards in Monday's 20-17 win over the Panthers.

    Thomas was busy early, accounting for seven of Derek Carr's 13 first-half completions, including a spectacular 19-yard catch along the sideline to convert on third down and set the Saints up with first-and-goal from the four-yard line. New Orleans ultimately settled for a field goal on that drive, and neither team found the end zone until Tony Jones' two-yard touchdown run with less than three minutes left in the third quarter. The defense shifted in Thomas' direction and held him without a catch in the second half, but the veteran wide receiver still finished with a respectable stat line and has 12 catches for 116 yards on the season heading into a Week 3 trip to Green Bay.

  • Saints' Michael Thomas: Commands eight targets

    Thomas recorded five receptions on eight targets for 61 yards in Sunday's 16-15 win over the Titans.

    Thomas finished second on the team in targets behind only Chris Olave. The former began his day with an impressive 25-yard grab down the left sideline but operated primarily in short areas of the field thereafter. Thomas should continue to soak up targets in that role, as Rashid Shaheed projects to serve as the deep threat while Olave should be the top option.
