In this world nothing can be certain except death, taxes and Michael Thomas getting a lot of receiving yards. Except now that's up in the air.

Michael Thomas suffered a high-ankle sprain that some believe could keep him out until after the New Orleans Saints bye.

That ankle injury has meant that Michael Thomas odds have slumped to +3800 from being a best price of just +500 before the season kicked off last week. It's taken the wideout from favorite to 13th in the betting, with even a price of +3800 looking short if it's true that he'll be out until after the bye-week.

The Green Bay Packers' Devante Adams has been the main benefactor of the injury. Adams went for two touchdowns and 156 yards on Sunday in a performance which was sensational. Even more importantly Aaron Rodgers looked liek the QB of old. Adams is now a best price of +700, half of the +1400 he was priced at last week.

Last week we reported that Adam Thielen was the most popular bet for the market with OddsChecker users and they've been rewarded. His performance against Green Bay has seen him shorten to be 5th favorite in the market, available at +2300 from +3300.
