Michael Thomas not practicing yet

Fantasy Impact: There were reports last week that Thomas was “doubtful” to practice at all in minicamp, so the fact that he was in uniform on the sideline seems like a positive sign. Coming off practically two lost seasons for Thomas, this remains a situation to monitor out of New Orleans to see if he can take the practice field again at least by training camp.

Treylon Burks ‘unavailable’ during practice Tuesday

Fantasy Impact: This seems a little concerning, especially with the recent reports of Burks having asthma. Regardless, we haven’t even reached training camp yet so it is still way too early to be super concerned. This will be a situation to monitor though heading into July and August.

Fantasy Impact: Patterson is coming off an interesting up-and-down season where he ran for 618 yards and six touchdowns on the ground to go along with 548 yards receiving and another five touchdowns through the air. The veteran is going through a different offseason program, but it shouldn’t have any impact on his status for this upcoming season. He’ll have more competition this year with Atlanta drafting Tyler Allgeier out of BYU.

Jalen Tolbert (hamstring) returns to practice Tuesday

Fantasy Impact: Tolbert reportedly saw the most reps he has seen in practice all spring. He saw a ton of reps on Tuesday with a lot of them coming out of the slot. The rookie receiver is going to have a ton of opportunity the rest of camp this offseason and into the early part of the regular season with Michael Gallup coming off a torn ACL.
