New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (foot) is expected to be a full participant in training camp, according to head coach Dennis Allen.
Huddle Up: What to do with this guy? Can you afford to take him as a WR3 after this prolonged of an absence and now at 30 years old? He'd be worth a gamble at WR4 if you can get him there.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (foot) told reporters Tuesday, June 6, that he will be ready for training camp "day one, full speed."
Huddle Up: Encouragingly, Thomas "simulated some routes" while working off to the side with each of the team's three quarterbacks during organized team activities on Tuesday. It is the first of what will likely be many reports regarding his readiness for the 2023 season after being riddled by lower-body injuries over the last three years. It will be hard for anyone to trust the 30-year-old to hold up, but fantasy managers only need to go back to the start of last season to see that he can still get it done. Consider him a very high-risk WR3 option for now.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (foot) had hardware in his foot removed a week ago, head coach Dennis Allen said Saturday, May 13.
Huddle Up: Injuries have limited Thomas to just 10 games since the start of the 2020 season, stalling out what had been one of the best starts to a career in NFL history. At this point, playing close to a full season at a WR3 level is probably the ceiling for Thomas.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (toe) is expected to be "good to go" for training camp, according to head coach Dennis Allen.
Huddle Up: The former PPR juggernaut has been plagued by injuries the last several seasons. Even if he stays healthy, it seems unlikely he will approach WR1 territory again at this stage of his career. If you roll the dice on Thomas, you should be thrilled if he can provide WR3 production.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (toe) isn't 100 percent, according to head coach Dennis Allen, Tuesday, March 28. "We're going to be cautious with it and take our time, and we really don't want to put him out there until he's 100%," according to Allen.
Huddle Up: Thomas is an upside WR3 in PPR. He's 30 now, and it has been three years since he was a WR1.

Updating a previous report, impending free-agent WR Michael Thomas (Saints) agree to a restructured contract with the New Orleans Saints that will pay him $10 million for the 2023 season and has a max value of $15 million, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Huddle Up: Thomas will likely get one final chance to prove to the Saints he can stay healthy after playing in only 10 games over the last three seasons combined. Considering how good Chris Olave was as a rookie, it is possible the pair will be a 1A/1B tandem for new quarterback Derek Carr. Thomas proved he still has WR2 upside last year for the three games he played, but the 30-year-old comes with a lot of risk.
