Michael Thomas’s Injury ridden year

Due to complications from his left ankle surgery, he missed the majority of that season due to an ankle injury, and he missed all of 2021 as a result. When training camp began in July, he resumed practising for the first time in more than a year. But a few weeks later, he sustained the hamstring injury.

Michael Thomas is expecting to resume his role as one of the league’s top receivers now that he has received the all-clear. 149 receptions for 1,725 yards and nine touchdowns were part of Thomas’ final healthy season in 2019, which helped him win the AP NFL Offensive Player of the Year award.

Fantasy managers would be pleased if Thomas has stats even remotely similar to those in 2022. His output might change slightly this time. Since he was receiving passes from future Hall of Famer Drew Brees back then. But if Thomas can stay healthy, it shouldn’t take long for him to replace Jameis Winston as the preferred target for the Saints.
