The New Orleans Saints defense hasn't had the start to the season it had hoped for, but their offense has been strumming along as usual. Drew Brees throwing it all over the field, especially to his No. 1 target Michael Thomas. 


Through the first two weeks, Thomas leads the NFL in receptions by a wide margin. Second on the list is Jarvis Landry, and he only has 20 receptions. 

This huge amount of touches has caused the odds for NFL receiving yards leader at FanDuel Sportsbook to sway, with Thomas rising to the second-best odds at +460 to lead the league in receiving yards. 


But with all the attention he's getting from one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, he could very well surpass Atlanta Falcons wide receiver and favorite Julio Jones (+320) for the top spot. 


If Thomas keeps up this pace and Jones has a few more lackluster performances like Week 2, these odds will be changing again, but this time with Thomas on top.
