Michael Thomas participating in team drills for first time this year

Saints WR Michael Thomas took part in team drills Saturday for the first time this year.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's been a long time coming for the Saints wide receiver, who didn't play at all in 2021 and a good portion of 2020 with an ankle injury.

The Saints have been gradually increasing Thomas' workload and there are still about four weeks until New Orleans' opener September 11 against the Falcons. Thomas is WR31 on Underdog with an ADP of 65. If healthy, Thomas could get back to his old ways.
