Jacksonville Jaguars’ receiver Mike Thomas Considered a Fantasy Steal

Is Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Mike Thomas a top 25 receiver in the NFL?

Steve Wyremski of Pro Football Focus thinks so, at least from a fantasy football perspective.

Wyremski makes some pretty compelling points for Thomas as he states the third-year receiver was arguably a top-25 receiver last year and will be even more productive now that he will be the team’s No.1 target with Mike Sims-Walker not returning. 

"Thomas is underrated with production similar to players drafted/ranked well above him and his production in PPR leagues is likely to be a Harvin/Smith (CAR) hybrid going forward should his current production continue,”  Wyremski  writes. “We’re also talking about the #1 WR in Jacksonville in 2011 who produced like this in the #2 WR role.   With the probability of more targets, we can expect a better finish than WR#25.”


Wyremski added that Thomas is considered more of a top 40 receiver in many leagues, making him a complete steal. 

Thomas was targeted 99 times last year—the highest of any receiver on the Jaguars’ roster and he finished 23rd in the PPR fantasy format after his 66 reception, 820 yard, 4 TD performance last season, so it’s not a stretch to think that Thomas will have an even more impressive stat line in 2011.
