2017 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jun-14-2017 by Shawn Childs


(Updated: 06/14/17)

Thomas had his fifth straight season with 90 or more catches and over 1,000 yards receiving. His yards per catch (12.0) were a career low with three straight seasons of regression (2013 - 15.5, 2014 - 14.6, and 2015 - 12.4). His catch rate (62.5) was higher than his last season (59.4) with Peyton Manning throwing the ball, but he had 33 fewer targets. After scoring 35 TDs over 48 games from 2012 to 2014, Thomas only has 11 TDs over his last 32 contests. In 2016, he had only two games with over 100 yards receiving. He did have a stretch with five catches or more in 13 games. Over his last nine games, he only had one TD. High volume WR who needs better play at the quarterback position and better blocking by the offensive line. Last year, Thomas was the 13th highest scoring WR in PPR leagues. Enough talent to regain some of his previous upside, but he needs some help from the man throwing the rock. Possible 100+ catches for 1,200+ yards and six-to-eight TDs. Last year he played through a pair of hips injuries. The change in coaching staff and improved health should lead to more vertical opportunities in the deep passing game.
