Michael Thomas essentially just needed one catch to nab his second straight 1,000-yard receiving season for the New Orleans Saints. The Ohio State product was sitting at 992 receiving yards against the New York Jets, and has gone over the mark in Sunday’s contest against the New York Jets on the first play of the game.

Thomas also entered Sunday with 85 receptions, and should have no problems getting to the century mark for 2017. He may only have two 100-yard performances on the year against the Bills (Week 10) and Falcons (Week 14), but has flirted with it in five other matchups.

Thomas becomes the seventh wide receiver across the league to go over 1,000 yards, joining the likes of Antonio Brown, DeAndre Hopkins, Adam Thielen, Julio Jones, Keenan Allen, and Tyreek Hill. Unfortunately for ‘Can’t Guard Mike’, he didn’t even crack the Top 10 in fan Pro Bowl voting. Perhaps the coaches and players will see it differently.
