Michael Thomas's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Michael Thomas to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 97 projected fantasy points puts him at #8 behind Keenan Allen and ahead of A.J. Brown. He is expected to be out through 11/7 which impacts his rest of season ranking. He has averaged 13.56 fantasy points in his past 33 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 10.8 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#12) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly more valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #6 ranked wide receiver. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite wide receiver. He is not projected for elite value. Michael Thomas is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #15 fantasy position rank.
