Michael Thomas just continues to get better every year, and his 2019 campaign was his best to date. The prolific Saints wideout was far away the best player at his position in all of football this season, and although his team's run was cut short in the playoffs, he earned some proper recognition during the NFL Honors on Saturday.

Thomas was named the NFL's Offensive Player of the Year after his record-setting season down in New Orleans.

Thomas broke Marvin Harrison's single-season record for receptions by hauling in an amazing 149 catches on 185 targets. He led the league with 1,725 receiving yards and found the end zone nine times.

The former Ohio State stud has logged more than 1,000 receiving yards in each of his four NFL seasons to date, though his production was simply off the charts this past year, even with Drew Brees sidelined for a chunk of the season.

He hauled in 10 or more receptions in nine different games, and topped 100 yards 10 times on the year.

While Thomas has never eclipsed the double-digit touchdown threshold, he's fresh off a record-setting season and will be looking for even more success in 2020.
