According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, New Orleans Saints star wideout Michael Thomas is expected to miss several weeks with a high-ankle sprain. He was the first wide receiver off the draft board in the majority of drafts after breaking the all-time record for most receptions in the season after finishing top-five on the all-time season list the year before.
This is terrible news for Thomas, Saints fans and fantasy owners. While he is out, other players will need to step up in his place. These are the players who are expected to have their fantasy value benefit from Thomas' absence.
