New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas isn't disclosing his offseason workout program, but he vows to be ready whenever he's needed on the field with teammates. 'I'll be ready when the season comes,' Thomas said. 'More than ready.'
Huddle Up: Thomas had a career year in 2019 while leading the NFL with 149 receptions and 1,725 receiving yards, despite QB Drew Brees missing time due to injury. In an offseason where every team is expected to have a little less preparation time, Thomas' status as a top-two or three fantasy option will only be more accentuated.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas caught 80.5 percent of his 185 targets in 2019 to lead all wide receivers with at least 75 targets.
Huddle Up: Targeting Thomas has proven to be a model of efficiency as he's reeled in at least 76 percent of his targets in three of his four seasons with the Saints. He's been a top-10 fantasy wideout in all four campaigns and slots right back in there in the 2020 preseason rankings -- and that's PPR or standard scoring.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas was targeted on a league-high 31.1 percent of his team's pass attempts in 2019.
Huddle Up: This is the kind of thing one would expect from a receiver who was targeted 185 times in a season like Thomas was last year. The Ohio State product has commanded the target share of 25 percent in each of the last three seasons, so no one should expect that to change in 2020 despite the addition of Emmanuel Sanders. Thomas is perhaps the safest pick a fantasy owner can make in the first round of drafts, as he has topped 90 catches, 1,100 yards and five touchdowns in each of his first four seasons.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas was charged with only three drops on 147 targets in 2018 - a drop percentage of two percent - but committed six drops on 185 targets in 2019 - a drop percentage of 3.2.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas was named the 2019 Associtated Press Offensive Player of the Year Saturday, Feb. 1.
Huddle Up: Thomas led the league in both receptions (149) and yards (1,725) while scoring nine touchdowns for the second year in a row. It's unknown whether it'll be Drew Brees, Teddy Bridgewater or even Tayson Hill under center for the Saints next season, but Thomas will be the No. 1 option either way, and he'll be a top-three fantasy option at the position.
