Week 3 WR Breakdown
Michael Thomas, Saints ($8900 DK, $9000 FD) – The ultra-talented wideout has taken his game to another level and could soon reach the five-figure salary stratosphere in DFS, not to mention, end the season as the WR1. Already 28 receptions on 20 targets through two weeks and averaging 37 DKP / 27.5 FDP. Falcons-Saints games have been barnburners in the past, but with the Falcons’ offense struggling under first-year OC Steve Sarkisian and the Saints utilizing the run game more frequently, each of last year’s tilts fell under the Vegas totals (37 total points in Week 14, 40 in Week 16). The Week 3 matchup is one of the only two projected for 50-plus points and Thomas figures to continue his target-monster ways. On a slate with no Antonio Brown, Thomas is the clear number-one option among wideouts if you’re willing to pay the price.
