Dreaded High Ankle Sprain For Michael Thomas

Recommended Posts

"Had" to grab him in one 12-man redraft when he fell to me at 2.03. If this is like most high-ankles that we have seen in WR's in recent years, then we must prepare for weeks of questionable tags, as well as the prospect of him being used as a decoy. Not good....owners need to make plans.

Thomas suffered a high-ankle sprain during Sunday's 34-23 win over the Buccaneers, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Thomas reportedly believes the injury is something he can play through, so he can't yet be ruled out for next Monday's tilt in Las Vegas, but high-ankle issues have a notorious tendency to linger and curtail fantasy production. The superstar wideout was held to just three catches for 17 yards Week 1. If Thomas indeed is hampered for the near future or even forced to miss time, the Saints will count on Emmanuel Sanders and Tre'Quan Smith to pick up the slack at wide receiver.

Traded Kyler and Hopkins for Dak and M. Thomas in one dynasty this summer. 

 

League freaked out that I had stolen big Mike.   Oh how a week changes things. :)

Not really; even in Thomas' absence last night, Sanders was only targeted 5 times, catching 3 balls for 15 yards.  Both Cook and Kamara were targeted more.  There may be a modest bump for Sanders, but Kamara is the real winner here.

So we agree, a modest bump is still a bump, it’s what I said.  

Keep up. 

Also that wa Sanders first game with the Saints in that system, he’ll have a bigger role going forward, he won’t dominate, but I would expect more then 5 targets   

Your welcome.

...and by default, Lat Murray. I could see the Saints with Lat on the ground-and-pound to soften things up (even more than week 1), and Kamara catching a bunch of balls. 

Cook wins too, of course.

Yeah, well, you expect a league cast-off to come into Tampa and become a star RB, too, so there's that.

If he fell to 2.03 then you drafted with idiots and should be fine.

I dunno, there are 11 owners who have healthy WR1s, and 1 who has Thomas...  so we may need a recount on the idiots.

Word he was walking around fine after the game.

True...but that is not unusual for a high ankle sprain. Running and cutting is usually the issue.

Kamara owners are going to feast in his absence; 8 targets last night.

He got a few extra garbage points on that trick play

Thomas is expected to miss several weeks after tests revealed that his high-ankle sprain is worse than expected, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: There were rumbles that Thomas may play through this injury, but those rumors have essentially been put to rest. If his injury is indeed serious enough to keep him out for multiple games, Thomas could be placed on IR, which would keep him out for at least three games.

Sorry for M Thomas. 

Uptick for Sanders. 

And Cook. 

And T Smith.

Just moved Sanders today pending commish approval for Hines... might turn out to be a bad move, but I'm in desperate need of RB depth amd the WW is thin

Wow, did you tear an ACL jerking your knee like that?

EDIT:  Never mind, you probly meant Emmanuel Sanders.  It was funnier when it was Miles.

Yeah, I was talking about E-Money, I'm not sure his value will get much higher than it is right now, as I'm not betting on him handling another team's #1CB week in and week out. I think Cook and Smith will benefit more than E. Could be wrong though. Maybe I could've gotten more in the trade, but I really wanted a piece of Indy's backfield.

Forget Thomas for this entire first half of the season. He will be back for the second half.

Reasonable bottom line....

Anybody looking to buy? What kinda player would be appropriate to trade for a guy that will likely miss 6-8 games?

Looking at the CBS Sportsline Trade Value Chart, the following Rb's are in the range of fair value for Thomas : Sanders, Ekler, Carson, Chubb, DJ, Gordon and Mostert. Wide recievers in that range are: Ridley, Golladay, JUJU, Thielien, Evans, Lockett, A-Rob, Woods, AJ Brown, DJ Moore, DK Metcalf, Amari Cooper, McLauren, and Chark. TE: M. Andrews, Kittle. QB- Mahomes.

Trequan Smith for the win

 

Tre’Quan Smith: There will be a lot of fantasy owners flocking to Emmanuel Sanders, and rightfully so, but don’t forget about the Saints former third-round pick who’s never had the opportunity he’s about to. Over the course of his career, Smith has seen 70 targets, turning them into 47 receptions for 665 yards and 10 touchdowns. That’s 9.5 yards per target and a touchdown every 7.0 targets.

Second preseason game for Sanders, in the Saints system, I expect that he’ll have an outstanding game.

Well I did draft Sanders in the late rounds, so with Golladay sitting out another game I reckon I will flex the ole dued.
