New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas has all the tools team's look for in an NFL receiver, according to a scout, but his consistency is a question mark. "He's just so damn inconsistent," the scout said. "He could be the best blocker. He can crush people. He just doesn't do it all the time. He's got great catching range, all this and that. He also drops balls."
Fantasy Tip: Playing with Drew Brees should help Thomas' development, and his size should make him a popular target in the red zone. He is worth a flier late in drafts, and his value is even higher in dynasty leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas doesn't have a ton of speed but he has the physical nature that should play well in the NFL, and he has after-the-catch abilities. He'll likely serve as depth in New Orleans behind Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead, and Thomas could become a nice red zone option for Drew Brees. His opportunities might be few and far between in his rookie year, though, so he's more of a late-round flier in deeper leagues.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees didn't put much stock into the reports the team was looking to trade up to land the No. 1 pick earlier this offseason and said he doesn't plan to retire any time soon.
Fantasy Tip: Brees would usurp Tom Brady in the QB pecking order if Brady's suspension sticks. Brees isn't a top-three quarterback anymore, but he's one of the next QBs to consider.

Memphis QB Paxton Lynch could be an option for the New Orleans Saints in the 2016 NFL Draft. The Saints had talks to move up to No. 1 overall for a quarterback previously. They could be a team to watch to move up into the first half of the first round to grab Lynch.
Fantasy Tip: Lynch is believed to be a couple years away from starting, and he's not an option outside of dynasty leagues.
