Michael Thomas placed on PUP list, out first six weeks

The New Orleans Saints have placed wide receiver Michael Thomas on the PUP list, meaning he’ll miss the first six weeks of the NFL season (per Adam Schefter)

Fantasy Impact: We knew Thomas was going to miss time with his surgery and now fantasy managers have a clear vision of how long Thomas will be out at the least. The Saints do have their bye during the first six weeks so Thomas will only miss the first five games on the schedule. Fantasy managers should still be tentative when comes to drafting Thomas and he should be drafted as anything more than a late round pick in redraft leagues.
