Thomas hauled in six of seven targets for 100 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Bengals. He lost a fumble during the contest.

EDGE Analysis

The game was just Thomas' second 100-yard performance in 15 games, including the playoffs. The star receiver questioned why he wasn't being included in the offense more and quarterback Trevor Siemian responded by giving it to Thomas and fellow receiver Emmanuel Sanders deep - including a 55-yard touchdown strike for Thomas. The game portends good things to come for Thomas as the team has some favorable match ups on the horizon, though he trails Sanders in catches and targets through three weeks.

Thomas said that he is not sure why the ball hasn't come his way more, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Broncos' $14-million-per-year man has just one 100-yard game in his last 14 contests, including the playoffs, so these problems are clearly not just the result of new quarterback Trevor Siemian. Still, it's pretty clear that changes are needed in terms of Siemian's play and head coach Gary Kubiak's play-calling. The team has been hesitant and unsuccessful when throwing deep. Short passes have been more successful, but not consistently so. The screen game, which Thomas has excelled in throughout his career, led to a 44-yard completion in Week 2, but has also contributed to two interceptions to start the season.

Thomas snatched five of seven targets for 90 yards in Sunday's win over the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas' 44-yards catch-and-run off of a screen was a welcomed view for fantasy owners as it was the kind of play that Thomas made a living on with Peyton Manning throwing him passes. A glimpse at the Thomas of old, and an increase over last week's 48-yard output, is nice - but Thomas still has a ways to go before returning to his place among the NFL's elite. The talented pass-catcher has topped 100 yards receiving just once in his last 11 games.

Thomas (hip) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas was limited at practice this past week, but he's out there Sunday if you need him, toughing it out through his hip issue.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, though the Broncos are "operating as if Thomas will be able to play through (his) hip injury" Sunday against the Colts, the team plans to have the wideout test things out pre-game to be sure.

EDGE Analysis

As a result, those considering Thomas in fantasy lineups will still want to monitor his status as Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff approaches. Thomas wound up listed as questionable for the contest after seeing work on about one-third of the team's snaps during practice this past week. If he does suit up Sunday, Thomas could be limited some by his hip issue, but at this this stage, he appears to be trending toward giving it a go in Week 2, in the absence of any setbacks during warmups.

Thomas (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts, Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas, who has been dealing with a hip issue, practiced all week, albeit with limitations. We'd expect him to suit up this weekend and tough things out, although Thomas owners will definitely want to verify his Week 2 status as Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff approaches.

Thomas (hip) practiced for the third straight day Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas, who participated in a limited capacity both Wednesday and Thursday, caught passes and ran routes during the individual portion to start Friday's session. Although it's unclear just how involved he was beyond that, the Broncos certainly don't want to overextend Thomas following the hip injury he suffered last Thursday. Given his veteran status, Thomas probably doesn't need much on-field work in order to play, but Friday's official practice report should offer further detail regarding his availability ahead of Sunday's game versus the Colts.

Thomas is taking his ailing hip "day by day," the Denver Post reports. "I ain't gonna be feeling great," Thomas said Thursday. "But it's getting better every day. You pray about it, keep getting treatment, and hopefully by game day, you're ready to go and nothing freaky happens."

EDGE Analysis

Assuming he takes the field Sunday against the Colts, Thomas appears certain to fall short of his typical snap count, which would make Emmanuel Sanders the clear-cut No. 1 receiver in the eyes of quarterback Trevor Siemian. There's also a chance that Thomas doesn't suit up at all with only one game complete on the Broncos' schedule. Behind Sanders, running back C.J. Anderson, and tight end Virgil Green, the pass-catching front is mostly barren, so that trio could consume the bulk of Siemian's attention.

Thomas (hip) practiced again Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas was back on the field Thursday after seeing "approximately one-third" of the Broncos' practice reps Wednesday. Per Mike Klis of 9News.com, Thomas was spotted working during individual drills Thursday, as the team's preparations for Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff against the Colts continued. Per the Denver Post, coach Gary Kubiak indicated Wednesday that he is planning on having Thomas in uniform Sunday. "I'm expecting him to be there," Kubiak noted. "DT has been through some of this before."

Thomas (hip) hobbled his way through Wednesday's practice, participating in approximately one-third of the session, according to The Denver Post.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas practiced for the first time since injuring his hip in Thursday's win over the Panthers, but it sounds as if he was barely able to take part, despite playing with the injury throughout most of the regular-season opener. While an MRI on Friday didn't reveal any structural damage, Thomas is clearly bothered by significant pain, with multiple reports confirming that he was visibly struggling during Wednesday's session. He even sought out a second opinion earlier this week, but his participation Wednesday suggests nothing new was discovered. With pain management seemingly the main concern, head coach Gary Kubiak still expects Thomas to play in Sunday's game against the Colts.
