News: 3 days agoCoach Dennis Allen said Friday that Thomas (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Spin: Thomas has missed three straight practice since suffering a foot injury Week 3, and the Saints will focus on his health with the hope of having the veteran standout back in action Week 5 against the Seahawks. Quarterback Jameis Winston (back/ankle/hip) is considered doubtful, according to Allen, so it looks as though New Orleans will go with Andy Dalton under center Sunday, with Chris Olave and Jarvis Landry (ankle) acting as his top wideouts.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: Thomas is back after an ankle injury cost him the entire 2021 season. The lost season came after an injury-plagued 2020 in which he posted a 40-438-0 receiving line in seven games. The string of missed time is extremely unfortunate considering that when we last saw Thomas for a full season (2019), he set the NFL single-season receptions record while posting an incredible 149-1,725-9 receiving line. Thomas had finished four consecutive seasons as a top-seven fantasy WR before 2020. Thomas no longer has Drew Brees throwing him passes, which is sure to decrease his previously terrific efficiency, but Jameis Winston was solid even with a shaky WR room in 2021. Thomas is now 29 years old and riskier than ever, but he remains positioned for a hefty target share, which makes him a fringe WR2 with upside.
