Michael Thomas

The next tough matchup for Tre’Davious White comes on Thanksgiving night when the Buffalo Bills travel to New Orleans to face the Saints. This past season was one of Michael Thomas’ worse in his career with only 40 receptions, 438 receiving yards and no touchdowns in seven games (five starts).

However, this was due in large part to an ankle injury he suffered in the first game of the season. Prior to this past season, Thomas was one of the top receivers in the game with over 100 receptions and 1,200 receiving yards in each season from 2017 to 2019.

The Saints have the tough task of finding a replacement for Drew Brees, who retired this offseason. The position battle comes down to Jameis Winston or Taysom Hill and whoever wins the job will almost certainly be looking to lean on their star receiver. This would be a busy week for Tre’Davious White trying to slow down Michael Thomas
