FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Michael Thomas (hamstring, ankle) practicing for Saints

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas (hamstring, ankle) is practicing Wednesday.

What It Means:

Thomas should finally be able to play Sunday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the first time since the first game of the season. Emmanuel Sanders (COVID-19) and Marquez Callaway (ankle) also practiced Wednesday. Alvin Kamara has averaged 9.7 targets per game without Thomas in the lineup. Tre'Quan Smith will likely see a reduced role moving forward.

Thomas will be returning against a Buccaneers pass defense that is No. 5 in numberFire's advanced team rankings. They are allowing the ninth-fewest FanDuel points per game (27.0) to the wide receiver position.
