Saints Put Michael Thomas On Injured Reserve

Tuesday, November 21, 4:04 PM

The New Orleans Saints are placing wide receiver Michael Thomas (knee) on Injured Reserve, which means that he will be forced to miss at least the next four games. Head coach Dennis Allen said on Monday that Thomas' knee injury was going to keep him out for some time, but now we know it will be at least for the next four games. It means that fantasy managers won't have him to close out their regular season and they might not even be able to count on him if they make the postseason. The 30-year-old injured his right knee on the first offensive play in Week 10 and was eventually ruled out for the rest of the game. Until Thomas is able to return, Rashid Shaheed and rookie A.T. Perry will see more targets through the air behind target hog Chris Olave. Tight end Juwan Johnson also becomes more attractive as a TE streamer.

George Kittle Logs Double-Digit PPR Points Against Philadelphia

Monday, December 4, 9:45 AM

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle secured four of his six targets for 68 yards in the team's blowout victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. Even though he was able to reach double-digit PPR points, the former All-Pro was the San Francisco weapon left out of the fun. Deebo Samuel scored three times, Brandon Aiyuk grabbed another touchdown, Christian McCaffrey scored on the ground, and even Jauan Jennings found paydirt. Kittle will be right back in the TE1 range next week when the Niners host the Seattle Seahawks.
