If you didn't catch the news yesterday that wide receiver Mike Thomas had landed with the Arizona Cardinals, we'll be more than happy to let it slide. After all, who's Mike Thomas?
The short answer is, Mike Thomas is a slot receiver that showed great promise early in his career in Jacksonville before his production went down the toilet. From there, Thomas went to Detroit where he was never heard from again — until yesterday.
Honestly, there's no great reason you should even know who Mike Thomas is, but by the end of the season, it's very possible he'll be known throughout fantasy leagues. Thomas never had much of an opportunity to succeed in Detroit, but in Arizona, he should get that chance.
Thomas' most notable characteristic is his ability to run after the catch. Frankly, he runs like a running back with the football. He's elusive in the open field, and he's not afraid to plunge through a defender for some extra yards.
Early in his care...

It has been a while since we have had a legit two-way player in the NFL, but the Arizona Cardinals think Patrick Peterson might have a little Primetime in him:
Peterson was also pressed today if his endurance would be able to hold up and he said that he isn’t worried about it. He is an exciting talent though and it will be interesting to see if he can pull this off.
