The Saints transferred Thomas (ankle) from the reserve/PUP list Tuesday to the reserve/COVID-19 list, Field Yates of ESPN reports. He tested positive for the virus, according to Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston.
Analysis: Thomas becomes the first Saints player to go on the COVID-19 list after the Associated Press reported earlier Tuesday that six unidentified New Orleans coaching staff members and one player tested positive for the virus. Provided he doesn't experience any overly severe symptoms on the virus, Thomas' timeline for making his 2021 debut shouldn't be affected. After opening the campaign on the PUP list while recovering from June surgery on his left ankle, Thomas was already slated to miss the first six weeks of the regular season. He'll first be eligible to return Oct. 25 in Seattle following the Saints' Week 6 bye.

Snead saw two snaps and dropped his lone target during Monday's 33-27 win over the Ravens.
Analysis: Snead dropped a critical red-zone target in overtime that led to a Ravens interception. The 28-year-old wideout appears to be firmly behind Zay Jones -- who saw 20 snaps -- on the depth chart, and barring injuries, he will not be fantasy relevant this year. Snead has finished with at least 300 yards and three touchdowns in each of his two previous seasons with the Ravens.

Griffin logged 17 offensive snaps during Sunday's 38-3 win over the Packers.
Analysis: Griffin was in the starting lineup next to No. 1 tight end Adam Trautman, but Juwan Johnson was ultimately used much more as a receiver. Meanwhile, Griffin logged nearly half of the available snaps on special teams. Barring an injury to Trautman of Johnson, it seems unlikely that Griffin will ever play a significant role in the passing game.

Scott was not part of the game plan in Week 1 as Miles Sanders (47 snaps) and Kenneth Gainwell (25 snaps) shared the running back duties against the Falcons on Sunday.
Analysis: The rookie Gainwell was expected to take over the No. 2 role behind Sanders at some point this season, but Scott being kept on the sideline for the entirety of Week 1 is still surprising. The 26-year-old appeared in all 16 games for the Eagles last year and rushed 80 times for 374 yards and caught 25 passes for 212 yards. Sanders notched 19 total touches for 113 yards, while Gainwell tallied 11 touches for 43 yards. Scott will likely remain on the sideline if the duo continues to produce the way it did against the Falcons.

Humphrey logged 18 offensive snaps but was not targeted with a pass during Sunday's 38-3 win over Green Bay.
Analysis: Humphrey drew the start opposite Marquez Callaway, but he ultimately logged just 29 percent of the offensive snaps compared to 84 for Callaway and 44 for Deonte Harris. Moreover, the 6-foot-4 receiver largely focuses on blocking tasks when he does see the field, so it's hard to get excited about Humphrey's fantasy potential even if he is a starter in the absence of Michael Thomas and Tre'Quan Smith (hamstring). Next up for the Saints is a Week 2 home game against the Saints.
