Demaryius Thomas (knee/hamstring) is not practicing today.
We'll let you know if anything changes, but Thomas appears unlikely to play in Week 3 against the Patriots as he looks to get to full strength. Thomas would not be an advisable fantasy option even if he does suit up on Sunday.
Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) is out for the rest of tonight's game.
Thomas has been ruled out along with quarterback Trevor Siemian at the start of the second half for the Jets. Before leaving, Thomas had one reception for -1 yard. The veteran receiver was dealing with the hamstring issue coming into the game, and there's a chance he misses more time as he looks to get to 100%.
Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) is officially active for the Jets.
After he was acquired by the Patriots last week, Thomas will be out there for his Jets debut tonight against the Browns. DT has some built-in chemistry with Trevor Siemian from their time together in Denver, but he's not a highly recommended fantasy option in the final game of Week 2.
Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Week 2.
Thomas did not practice today, but the Jets are still hoping for their new receiver to play on Monday night. Ideally, you’ll have a stronger fantasy option for your Week 1 fantasy lineup than waiting to see if Thomas is active.
The Jets are acquiring Demaryius Thomas for a sixth-round pick, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
So, New England is essentially trading their No. 5 or No. 6 wideout for a Day 3 selection, but New York feels they need to upgrade their receiving corps for Sam Darnold after a disappointing Week 1 loss. Thomas is now on his fourth team in less than a calendar year, and he probably will slide in as the team's No. 4 receiver (behind Robby Anderson, Jamison Crowder, and Quincy Enunwa) despite a history with head coach Adam Gase.
Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) is officially inactive for Week 1.
Thomas was limited in practice all week, it's not surprise that the Patriots are holding him out for tonight's game versus the Steelers. After New England's acquisition of Antonio Brown, Thomas is probably not worth holding onto in fantasy leagues.
Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday night.
Thomas was limited in practice all week, and he could be trending toward a game-time decision. However, the Patriots might take it slow with Thomas, as the veteran receiver is still coming off a torn Achilles despite playing in the final preseason game. If DT plays, he won't be a recommended Week 1 fantasy option.
The Patriots are re-signing Demaryius Thomas.
New England putting first-round rookie receiver N'Keal Harry on injured reserve opens the roster spot for the team to bring back Thomas. The veteran receiver might immediately have a starting role along with Josh Gordon and Julian Edelman, but he will likely mostly split time with Phillip Dorsett (and potentially Gordon, depending on what shape the Pats feel he's in) to open the year.
The Patriots are releasing Demaryius Thomas, according to Ian Rapoport.
It looked like DT may have been safe after scoring twice in the preseason finale, but New England has plenty of bodies at receiver, especially after undrafted rookie Jakobi Meyers stepped up this summer. Also, while catching passes from Tom Brady would have been nice, Thomas—who is coming off a torn Achilles—might actually have more value somewhere else as the No. 3 or No. 4 option rather than fifth with the Pats.
Demaryius Thomas (Achilles) has been activated from the PUP list.
Thomas tore his Achilles in December, but like former teammate Emmanuel Sanders, he's made an impressive recovery and could now position himself for a roster spot in New England. That said, the Patriots are suddenly loaded at receiver after Josh Gordon was reinstated, so DT is no lock to make the team—and if he does, it could be as the No. 5 option behind Julian Edelman, N'Keal Harry, Phillip Dorsett, and Gordon.
Demaryius Thomas (Achilles) is on the PUP list to start training camp.
This was obviously expected after Thomas just tore his Achilles late last December. Thomas is probably no lock to make the final roster for the Patriots this season, so ideally he'll get off the field soon as he looks to win a roster spot—and potentially a sizable role catching passes from Tom Brady—in New England.
The Patriots are signing Demaryius Thomas, according to ESPN's Field Yates.
New England was reportedly in on Thomas ahead of the trade deadline last season before the Denver ultimately traded him to Houston, but now the partnership is happening with the Pats thin at receiver. Thomas is coming off a torn Achilles and doesn't seem likely to be ready for Week 1, but the Patriots are a team that can take things slow, so this is probably the perfect spot for the veteran receiver. Assuming all goes well with his recovery and he's able to get on the field in 2019, the 31-year-old will be fortunate enough to have played with both Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in his career. Thomas' progress will be tracked throughout the summer, but the Patriots might not be too willing to share much information about his recovery. When healthy, Thomas figures to slide in as a starter along with Julian Edelman and Phillip Dorsett.
Demaryius Thomas was arrested for vehicular assault stemming from a crash earlier this month.
Thomas was going 70 miles per hour in a 30 MPH zone according to Denver police, and it led to one of his passengers suffering "serious bodily injuries." The free agent receiver is now in custody. Thomas only endured minor injuries from the crash, but this certainly won't help his chances of getting another NFL opportunity—especially since he's now 31 and coming off a torn Achilles.
The Texans have officially released Demaryius Thomas.
This was reportedly set to happen today, and now it’s official. The 31-year-old is facing a lengthy recovery from his torn Achilles suffered in late December, so there’s a chance he might not draw immediate interest and might instead have to wait until he’s closer to 100%. However, it’s worth noting the Patriots reportedly showed interest in the veteran receiver at the trade deadline, so they’re among the teams to keep an eye on in the coming weeks. The Texans are set with DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller (who is recovering from a torn ACL), and Keke Coutee leading the receiving corps in 2019.
Demaryius Thomas (Achilles) has been placed on injured reserve.
Thomas went down in Sunday’s loss to the Eagles, and his absence will create a huge hole for the Texans across from DeAndre Hopkins. Of course, the team traded for DT to fill the hole created by Will Fuller’s season-ending knee injury, and it’s possible they now rely on rookie Keke Coutee to kick outside with DeAndre Carter staying in the slot for a potential playoff run. Thomas, who turns 31 on Christmas Day, can be released in the offseason and not negatively impact the cap, so he might not only face a long rehab process, but also be looking for a new team next year. Overall between Houston and Denver, Thomas caught 59 passes for 677 yards and five touchdowns this season. We wish him the best in his recovery.
Demaryius Thomas' injury is being called an Achilles injury.
Unfortunately that's what it looked like after he went down on a non-contact action. This would be Thomas' second torn Achilles if it is indeed torn, and more information should become available in the next day or two.
Demaryius Thomas leaves game with apparent leg injury.
Thomas was hurt before blocking on a screen pass to DeAndre Hopkins. Initially he tried getting off the field, but then he went back on the ground even with the help of trainers. It looks like he's in serious pain, and it was a non-contact injury and he's getting carted off, so it it looks like his day is done. Before leaving, Thomas caught three passes for 37 yards.
Demaryius Thomas caught six passes for 59 yards in Saturday's win over the Jets.
Thomas was targeted eight times, but DeAndre Hopkins (10/170/2) did most of the damage on a team-high 11 looks. We'll see if Houston tries to get DT involved more next week to build some momentum into the postseason, but he will remain just a FLEX despite a great matchup against the Eagles in Philadelphia.
Demaryius Thomas caught four passes for 48 yards in Sunday's loss to the Colts.
Thomas had a two-touchdown game to close out December, but he's combined for just 80 scoreless yards over the past two weeks, and the WR2 expectations that some had for him in Houston look unlikely to come to fruition this season. Perhaps DT can get going on Saturday against the Jets, who he went for a 5/105/1 line against with the Broncos earlier this year.
Demaryius Thomas caught three passes for 32 yards in win over the Browns.
It was a quiet day for Thomas, who was targeted five times as Houston played ahead. DT has caught just ten passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns in four games as a Texan, so he's not yet lived up to WR2 expectations that optimists might have had for him in a new offense. The Colts are a great matchup next week, but Thomas will be a low-floor FLEX option to start the fantasy playoffs.
Demaryius Thomas scores twice as Houston improves to 8-3.
Thomas caught four passes for 38 yards and two touchdowns, which came from 12 yards away in the first quarter and ten yards away in the fourth quarter. Bill O'Brien pinned the failure to get DT involved on himself, so dialing up a couple plays in the red zone for the veteran certainly fixed things for a team that has now won eight games in a row. Thomas should be a quality FLEX option in Week 13 against the Browns.
Demaryius Thomas did not catch a pass in Week 11.
Thomas was not very involved for the Texans on offense. This could've been just a one-off occurrence, but the former Bronco does not need to be owned in standard-sized fantasy leagues.
Demaryius Thomas caught three passes for 61 yards in his Texans debut.
Thomas was able to bring in all three of his looks, with two of them coming on the game's opening drive for 46 yards against his former team. It was a good sign for his fantasy prospects to be immediately involved, and DT should become a bigger factor coming out of the Week 10 bye with a better grasp of Bill O'Brien's offense. He should have weekly FLEX value in all formats down the stretch.
The Texans are finalizing a trade for Demaryius Thomas, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
A mid-round pick is being sent back to Denver in exchange for Thomas, according to Rapoport. After Will Fuller went down with a season-ending ACL tear last Thursday night against the Dolphins, speculation began about the Texans potentially making a move for a wide receiver. Thomas now joins DeAndre Hopkins and rookie Keke Coutee as the top three receivers for Deshaun Watson. The veteran receiver will have to learn and get acclimated to Bill O'Brien's offense, but this should turn out to be a boost for his fantasy value down the stretch. DT was a big part of the Peyton Manning-led offenses earlier in his career, and he was one of the best receivers in Broncos history. He was also on the receiving end of the 80-yard game-winning touchdown from Tim Tebow in the team's playoff win over the Steelers in 2012. His Denver career ends with 665 receptions, 9,055 yards, and 60 touchdowns in eight plus seasons. This trade opens the door for rookie receiver Courtland Sutton to have a huge role over the final eight games of the season, and he's obviously one of the top waiver adds this week if available in fantasy leagues.
Demaryius Thomas catches three passes in Week 8.
Thomas gained 30 yards on his three receptions against the Chiefs, and his seven targets led the team in the Broncos loss. Trade rumors are swirling about Thomas, who acknowledged there's a chance he's traded to another team by Tuesday's trade deadline, so this could have been his last game with Denver. He's one of the biggest names to watch in the next couple of days.
Demaryius Thomas catches five passes against the Cardinals.
Thomas gained 42 yards on his five receptions (six targets) in the Week 7 victory. Denver's offense didn't need to do much through the air jumping to an early lead, and Thomas did most of his damage in the earlier parts of the game. He played well, it just didn't equate to a strong fantasy performance on a night Denver only had to complete 15 passes to win by 35 points. DT had a 4/24 line in the first matchup of the season against his next opponent, the Chiefs.
Demaryius Thomas scores in loss to the Rams.
Thomas caught three-of-four targets for 57 yards, including a one-yard touchdown on a toe-drag grab in the fourth quarter. After a disappointing three-game stretch, DT has now gone for lines of 5/105/1 and 3/57/1 over the past two weeks, and he will look to keep it up against Arizona on Thursday night. Consider Thomas a quality FLEX option in all formats.
Demaryius Thomas goes over 100 yards with a score against the Jets.
Thomas had his best game of the season in the Week 5 loss, catching five-of-six targets for 105 yards and a touchdown. The score was basically garbage time, but it was a 42-yarder to help make it a very productive day for the veteran receiver. Perhaps this performance will lead to more targets for Thomas, but he has a tough matchup next week against the Rams.
Demaryius Thomas comes up short in loss to the Chiefs.
Thomas caught four passes for 24 yards in the 27-23 loss. The Monday Night Football broadcast team didn't bring it up, but it looked like the veteran slowed down on a would-be game-winning touchdown on the final drive of the game, and the pass instead sailed out of bounds. It will be interesting to see if anyone brings it up this week talking about a missed opportunity for the Broncos after holding a 23-13 lead in the fourth quarter, but Thomas is on pace for an 80/672/4 line through four games. Second-round pick Courtland Sutton getting more playing time wouldn't be a surprise, but DT remains a FLEX option for Week 5 against the Jets.
Demaryius Thomas leads Broncos in Week 3 receiving.
Thomas caught all five of his targets against the Ravens, gaining 63 yards on his five receptions. His long of 22 yards was the longest reception of the day for the Broncos. DT faces a familiar foe in Week 4 when the Broncos take on the Chiefs on Monday night.
Demaryius Thomas can’t get going against the Raiders.
Thomas has had his share of struggles against Oakland in his career, and they basically shut him down in Denver’s Week 2 win. DT was targeted a team-high 11 times but caught five passes for just 18 yards. He’ll look to get back on track in Week 3 against the Ravens.
Demaryius Thomas scores in Broncos' win.
Thomas was target ten times by new quarterback Case Keenum, catching six passes for 63 yards and a touchdown. The touchdown was on a nice toe-drag catch in the end zone. Next week, Thomas faces the Raiders and should be a solid option in fantasy lineups as a clear top-two Denver receiver with Emmanuel Sanders.
Demaryius Thomas drastically changed his diet this offseason.
NFL Network's James Palmer spoke to Thomas and wrote a piece on his discussion which can be read in the link below. Thomas' hip issues are well-documented, and he said that after the season he was thinking about when he'd retire; but he found a book on the relationship between inflammation and diet, which led to a big change in his lifestyle—and he's feeling the positive results. This sounds a lot like what Tom Brady does with the TB12 Method, and the better diet has led to less inflammation, and less problems with his hip. Thomas, who is entering his ninth NFL season, now says he's thinking his career could go "15 or 16" years despite thoughts of retiring soon earlier in the offseason. DT originally dropped his weight from 228 to 212 after he changed his diet, but he got it back up to a comfortable playing weight and still feels energized and light—and he apparently looks that way, too. The best news is that his hip is feeling a lot better, and it should show in his play this season after he admitted he had trouble moving with it, particularly in the last two seasons. After missing 1,000 yards for the first time since 2011 last season, Thomas is looking like a good bet to hit the mark in 2018.
The Broncos have picked up Demaryius Thomas' $4-million option, according to James Palmer.
This means Thomas will definitely be back in Denver next season, and it also triggers another year of the contract for the 2019 season. The move is notable after Case Keenum reportedly agreed to a two-year deal with the Broncos this morning, as DT will have a new quarterback throwing him passes in this fall. Demaryius is a prime bounce-back candidate with Keenum under center, but the offensive line still needs to be fixed in Denver for the offense to have more success than they did a season ago.
Demaryius Thomas scores in season finale.
Thomas caught six passes for 57 yards, including a game-tying touchdown reception from six yards away, but the Chiefs eventually won it with a field goal as time expired. DT fought through inconsistent quarterback play and nagging injuries all season, but he started all 16 games and ended up with a respectable 83/949/5 line. Thomas turned 30 on Christmas, but the Broncos would be wise to bring him back in 2018. He'd be a value WR2 pick in fantasy drafts if John Elway can fix the quarterback position this offseason.
Demaryius Thomas leads the Broncos in Week 16 receiving.
Thomas was targeted six times in the Christmas Eve loss, catching four passes for 52 yards. DT should be a fine option in Week 17, but he'd probably get a slight downgrade if Paxton Lynch starts at quarterback for the Broncos.
Demaryius Thomas catches five passes in Week 15.
Thomas got off to a fast start against the Colts, as he was targeted often. He did slow down as the game went on, but it was another solid game for DT. Overall, he was targeted eight times and gained 69 yards on his five receptions. Thomas might have to contend with Josh Norman next week against the Redskins, but that isn't a huge concern and he'll remain an option in fantasy lineups.
Demaryius Thomas scores in win over the Jets.
Thomas caught eight passes for 93 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown. The longtime Bronco bounced back from a combined 45 yards over the previous two weeks, as he was the main source of offense in Week 14. Denver would have fared better offensively this season if DT was given more opportunities, but he will look to keep it going on Thursday night against the Colts. Consider him a solid WR2 option.
Demaryius Thomas, Broncos passing does nothing in Week 13.
Thomas caught two passes for 27 yards, but he and Emmanuel Sanders were both held without a reception for most of the day. Trevor Siemian looked uncomfortable behind a bad offensive line, and DT couldn't capitalize on a good matchup. If Siemian is back under center next Sunday against the Jets, it's hard to trust Thomas for the first week of the fantasy playoffs. Brock Oswieler would be a safer option and leave Demaryius as a solid WR2.
Demaryius Thomas gets eight targets in Week 12.
His eight targets were a team-high, but Oakland again did a nice job of limiting Thomas, as he had five receptions for only 18 yards in the game. Thomas will look to bounce back next week against former offensive coordinator Adam Gase and the Dolphins.
Demaryius Thomas scores for third-consecutive game as Broncos fall to Bengals.
After being held without a reception in the first half, Thomas came alive with five catches for 64 yards, with the highlight being a great contested catch in the end zone to bring the game within three. Denver needs to get DT more targets if they are going to turn things around offensively, but he gets a difficult matchup with Oakland's bigger corners in Week 12. He will be a low-end WR2/FLEX rather than a solid WR1/WR2.
Demaryius Thomas scores in loss to New England.
Thomas caught five passes for 44 yards and a touchdown, which was a tightly contested seven-yard reception with Stephon Gilmore right on him. DT has now scored in two-straight games after not finding the end zone for 13 games in a row, as Brock Osweiler has done a nice job since taking over as the starter. Thomas should again be an WR1/WR2 against a Bengals team he has had success against, including a 6/100/1 line last season.
Demaryius Thomas is off the Week 10 injury report.
DT was dealing with a hamstring issue earlier in the week, but he was a full participant in practice today and is ready to roll against the Patriots. Thomas has had some good games against New England in the past, and he's looking to make it two straight weeks with a touchdown. He should be in your fantasy lineup as a WR1/WR2 option.
Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) was limited in today's practice.
After not participating in yesterday's practice, Thomas is headed in the right direction. It'd be a surprise if he didn't play, but check back in tomorrow when the official injury report for the game is released by the team.
Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) did not practice today, Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said.
It's only Wednesday, so there's nothing to be too alarmed about. Thomas was in Sunday's game almost until the very end, even with Denver down big, so it's probably not too serious. DT did come up gimpy on one play in the second half, but he remained in the game after. We'll monitor his practice status throughout the week, but expect Thomas to be out there on Sunday night against New England.
Demaryius Thomas snaps scoreless streak in Broncos' loss.
Thomas hadn't scored in the last 13 games, but that streak finally ended against the Eagles. DT was targeted a team-high 12 times by Brock Osweiler in the loss, catching eight passes for 70 yards and a touchdown. Finally, the Broncos got Osweiler involved on some short passes and screens, and his touchdown came on a screen by the goal line. Thomas nearly had another touchdown earlier in the game on another short pass that he was brought down just short after not being able to keep his balance. His next matchup is against Bill Belichick and the Patriots, a team DT is averaging 98.6 yards per game against—though it's possible New England tries to take him out of the game.
Demaryius Thomas leads Broncos in Week 8 receiving.
Thomas was targeted a team-high nine times against Kansas City, catching five passes for 66 yards. The Broncos probably should've had more of a gameplan that involved getting Thomas the ball against right cornerback Kenneth Acker, who hasn't played much this season, with Marcus Peters playing exclusively at left cornerback—but that didn't happen. DT has a good matchup with the Eagles next week, and he should remain in fantasy lineups.
Demaryius Thomas held to nine yards in blowout loss.
Thomas caught just two passes in a battle with Casey Hayward, but he was robbed of an 81-yard catch-and-run because of a questionable offensive pass interference on a slight shove that guys like Mike Evans and Dez Bryant almost always get away with. DT should be a lot better against Kansas City next Monday night, especially if Emmanuel Sanders sits again. Either way, he's a solid WR1/WR2 option, but the offensive line needs to be better for Denver.
Demaryius Thomas (calf) will play Sunday.
The Broncos appeared to be a little slow on their injury reports this week, but Thomas is off the injury report after he was limited yesterday and full today in practice. With Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) out, Thomas should be locked into 10+ targets against the Chargers and is a top-ten option for Week 7.
Demaryius Thomas has his best game of the season in Broncos' loss on Sunday Night Football.
Thomas caught a season-high 10 passes for 133 yards, as he was able to turn top cornerback Janoris Jenkins around a handful of times for chunk yardage. He also was given some chances to make plays deep, in contested coverage, which he was able to do. DT briefly left the game with a lower-leg injury, but he battled through it with the game all but over, which bodes well for his Week 7 status. Thomas did lose a fumble, and he's yet to score in 2017, but fantasy owners can't complain. With Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) not looking good for next week, Thomas should get a lot of targets and will be at least a high-end WR2 against Casey Hayward.
Demaryius Thomas held to one catch in Week 4 win.
It went for 11 yards. DT couldn't haul in any downfield plays, and he's yet to score a touchdown in 2017. The Broncos will look to fix things over their bye week. Thomas is on pace for 72 catches and 988 yards, both of which he should improve upon starting in Week 6. He remains a solid WR2.
Demaryius Thomas leads team in receiving as Broncos fall to Bills.
Thomas caught six passes for 98 yards, battling with impressive rookie cornerback Tre'Davious White for much of the day. DT is still without a touchdown in 2017, as the Broncos had to settle for three field goals in the loss. He's been consistent, though, with 67, 71, and now 98 yards through three weeks. Thomas will be a solid WR2 for next Sunday's matchup with the Raiders.
Demaryius Thomas caught six passes for 71 yards in Sunday's win over the Cowboys.
Thomas looked healthy and fired up in the game, as Dallas' progressively-weakened secondary couldn't contain him or Emmanuel Sanders. DT is on the WR1/WR2 borderline for next Sunday's matchup with the Bills.
Demaryius Thomas grabs five passes in Week 1.
DT had 67 yards against the Chargers, which was a game-high. Thomas did have one drop in the game when he turned his eyes away to run too quickly, but he looked good besides that. A healthier Thomas is looking for yet another 90+ reception, 1,000+ yard season in 2017.
Demaryius Thomas suffered a groin injury in tonight's preseason game against the Packers.
It's unclear exactly when Thomas sustained the injury, but he's out for the game. Thomas was seen standing on the sidelines, so it's probably not too bad. He'll have over two weeks to get ready for Week 1 in the late game of the Monday Night Football doubleheader. More information on the extent of Thomas' injury should become available after the game or in the coming days, but he should be safe to draft in your fantasy league.
Demaryius Thomas catches one pass in limited action in first preseason game.
Thomas' catch was for 11 yards. DT should be set for another good season, as he has one of the highest floors in fantasy football.
Demaryius Thomas is back at Broncos' OTAs.
DT missed yesterday with a "personal reason," it's good to see it doesn't appear too serious and Thomas is back after missing only one day. Thomas is getting reps with both Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch, who are competing for the starting quarterback job.
Demaryius Thomas is dealing with a "personal matter" and not in attendance at Broncos' OTAs today.
It's not a holdout of any sort. Hopefully everything is OK with Thomas and he can return to the team soon.
Demaryius Thomas said "this is the best I've ever felt in damn near my whole career," according to Andrew Mason.
Thomas again said his hip injury sustained in the season opener against the Panthers affected him all season. Mason says Thomas' excitement about the new offense is "palpable." Thomas will be the Broncos' number one receiver this season, and he should have no problem putting up his sixth straight season with over 1,000 yards, if he stays healthy. Thomas has also had at least 90 receptions in the last six seasons. There aren't many safer players to draft in fantasy.
Demaryius Thomas says hip injury from Week 1 last season affected him in 2016.
Last season, Thomas struggled to run certain routes because of the nagging injury. Thomas said he feels "great" now and is running routes without any issues. He did say it doesn't bother him now, but "it just depends on how you get hit." Obviously, Thomas hasn't been hit since the season ended, so it might be a slight concern the injury could pop back up at some point. It's worth keeping an eye on if he gets through the preseason without any issue with it.
Demaryius Thomas caught four passes for 47 yards in Sunday's win over the Raiders.
Despite playing with Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch, Thomas finished with his fifth straight 90-catch, 1,000-yard season. His exact line was 90/1,083/5. With a new head coach in Denver for 2017, Thomas' outlook will depends on the coach and quarterback situation. If Kyle Shanahan is hired and Tony Romo is brought to Denver for example, we wouldn't be opposed to drafting DT in the second round of fantasy drafts. We'll see what happens.
Thomas held in check on Christmas.
DT caught just three passes for 20 yards on eight targets. Thomas desperately needs a quarterback next season to get back to his WR1 or even high-end WR2 ways. He will be a FLEX for the season finale against the Raiders next Sunday.
Demaryius Thomas caught seven passes for 91 yards in the Broncos' 16-3 loss to New England.
DT was great in this game after being shut down in the two meetings with the Patriots last season. Thomas has been one of the hottest receivers in the league despite the Broncos struggles recently. He should see a lot of Marcus Peters on Christmas Night, but Thomas remains a solid WR2.
DT caught 10 passes for 126 yards in Sunday's loss to the Titans.
Thomas made some spectacular catches in the game, and Emmanuel Sanders also had a big day, but it only led to 10 points for the Broncos in a 13-10 loss. Demaryius could have a repeat performance next week against the Patriots in a game that Denver will surely have to score more than 10 points. He's a WR2.
Demaryius caught six passes for 61 yards in Sunday's win.
Thomas was easily the Broncos best (only) receiver on Sunday, as Emmanuel Sanders caught just three passes for 28 yards and Cody Latimer caught a 10-yard pass. Rookie Paxton Lynch struggled big-time under center, but it was a solid game for DT considering. If Trevor Siemian is back in Week 14, Thomas will be a solid WR2; if not, he'll be just a FLEX.
DT catches five passes for 60 yards against KC in Week 12.
Emmanuel Sanders was the primary target for Trevor Seimian against the Chiefs. Thomas has a very high floor and is a WR2. Look for him to have a bigger game against the Jags next Sunday.
Demaryius Thomas plays tough in win.
Thomas caught eight passes for 87 yards and one touchdown in the Broncos' 25-23 victory. The touchdown was a two-yard fade pass in the 4th quarter where he simply out-jumped and outmuscled the cornerback. He also made a spectacular one-handed grab over the middle--a place where he sometimes pulls up to avoid contact. Thomas should be a solid WR2 when the Broncos return to the field in Week 12.
