Michael Thomas In Flex Range For PPR Leagues

Friday, September 29, 9:22 AM

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas has remained consistent throughout his career. While his numbers have fallen since his prime years, he is still garnering a 25.7% target share on the season with an average of 8.7 targets per game. That volume alone is enough to warrant a fantasy start. The concern is his efficiency with that volume, as his average yards per reception is at a career-low 9.2. PPR leagues reward receptions, making Thomas a valuable flex option, but he has yet to score a touchdown in 2023 and has not yet cleared 61 receiving yards in a game. Start him in PPR leagues with a safe floor, but know that his upside is limited.

Zay Jones Ruled Out For London Game

Friday, September 29, 11:13 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Zay Jones (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons in London. It will be the second straight missed game for Jones while he deals with a right-knee injury. It was reported earlier this week that he'd be a long shot to play in Week 4 anyway, so fantasy managers should have already moved on. The 28-year-old had five catches for 55 yards and a touchdown in the season opener but failed to haul in any of his six targets in the Week 2 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. With Jamal Agnew (quadriceps) being a game-time decision in London, Tim Jones could end up serving as the team's No. 3 wideout against Atlanta behind Calvin Ridley and Christian Kirk.
