16. Michael Thomas, WR, New Orleans
Thomas sometimes gets lost in the shuffle among the league’s other elite receivers, but he deserves to be mentioned among the NFL’s best. He’s burst onto the scene in a hurray, setting the NFL record for most receptions in his first three seasons. He also led the league in catches in 2018, hauling in 125 passes while also amassing 1,405 yards. Thomas is the primary offensive threat for one of the best offensive teams in the NFL, making him an integral part of New Orleans’ recent success.
There’s no reason to expect anything different from Thomas in 2019. Outside of Ted Ginn, most people can’t name another wide receiver on the Saints right now. Opposing defenses will give Thomas a lot of attention, but that won’t stop him from catching 100-plus passes again in 2019.
