After missing the entire 2021 season due to an ankle injury, Thomas caught 16 passes for 171 yards and three touchdowns before suffering a toe injury in the second half of Week 3 against the Panthers and sitting out Week 4.

His lack of on-field activity this week suggests he’s not in good shape for the Seahawks’ Week 5 matchup.

On Wednesday, Thomas attended QB Jameis Winston (back) as notable “DNPs” for the Saints, as both could miss Week 5.

Andy Dalton was effective last Sunday in London (20-of-28 passing, 236 yards, one touchdown) and now faces Seattle at home.

Outside of Alvin Kamara, rookie Chris Olave is the only Saint worth starting right now, but given the matchup, TE Juwan Johson could be a sneaky sleeper.

Chris Olave is an excellent fantasy play once again. He’s definitely on the WR2 radar.
