Thomas reeled in 90 passes for 1,083 yards and five touchdowns during the 2016 season.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas' production across the board represented his lowest totals since the 2011 season. It is no coincidence that the four years of elite-level production in between were with Peyton Manning at the helm. Though Thomas still found his way into the Pro Bowl, he lacked consistent play with only two games of 100 yards or more and no touchdowns after the Broncos' Week 11 bye. New head coach Vance Joseph has promised a more up-tempo, aggressive offense in 2017, but without strides from last year's starter Trevor Siemian or 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch, there might not be enough quality passes to go around to sustain both Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, who often looked like the No. 1 man in Mile High.

Thomas caught four of six targets for 47 yards in Sunday's win over the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas briefly left Sunday's game with an injury, but soon returned. During a rough 2016 season for Denver's offense, Thomas still managed to top 90 catches and 1,000 yards for the fifth straight year. Plenty of questions will need to be answered before he shoots for number six. Head coach Gary Kubiak is set to retire and Thomas is likely to be playing in a new offense next season. He might also be catching passes from a new quarterback, depending on whether the new staff decides to stick with Trevor Siemian, move on with 2016 first-rounder Paxton Lynch or look elsewhere for solutions.

Thomas caught three of eight targets for 20 yards in Sunday's loss to Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the offense's floundering, Thomas was actually showing well in recent weeks, with 28 catches in Denver's first four games after the bye. That all came crashing down on Sunday with season lows in catches and yards. It's been a tough year for Thomas with an uncustomary level of inexperience at quarterback and he might get rookie Paxton Lynch tossing passes his way in what amounts to a meaningless Week 17. In Lynch's two starts this season, Thomas has caught 11 passes for 110 yards and a touchdown.

Thomas had seven receptions on 11 targets for 91 yards in Sunday's 16-3 loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas easily led the Broncos in all receiving categories, and was one of the few bright spots in an otherwise lackluster offensive performance. Even though Denver has scored just a total of 13 points over the last two games, Thomas has been able to produce, catching 17 of 27 targets for 217 yards. On a negative note, he hasn't scored a touchdown since Nov. 13. Next week, he'll take on the Chiefs in Kansas City.

Thomas snagged 10 of 16 targets for 126 yards in Sunday's loss to Tennessee.

EDGE Analysis

Despite Denver putting up a season low in points, Thomas was able to set season highs in catches, targets and yardage all while making mesmerizing diving and one-handed grabs along the way. It hasn't been an ideal season for Thomas, who is a near-lock to have his lowest yardage total since the 2011 Year of Tebow. Sunday was a reminder, however, that Thomas is still an elite target who can still put up numbers despite playing on an offense on training wheels.

Thomas caught six of 10 targets for 61 yards in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.

EDGE Analysis

With rookie quarterback Paxton Lynch under fire for much of the game, he turned to the dependable hands of Thomas - who reeled in half of the Broncos' completions and yardages in Sunday's slopfest. It's been a very quiet year by Thomas' standards, but he's remained consistently solid, Sunday marking his 11th straight game with at least five catches.

Thomas caught five of eight targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas drew plenty of attention from Marcus Peters and the Kansas City defensive unit in this one and managed just 19 receiving yards in the first half. He was coming off one of his best games of the season prior to the team's bye week and now has at least five catches in each of his last 11 games. Thomas should bounce back sooner rather than later as the most consistent option in the Broncos' receiving corps and will look to do so next week against the Jaguars.

Thomas reeled in eight of 11 targets for 87 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas tied the score at 17 when he out-jumped the defensive back for a two-yard score on third and goal in the fourth quarter. The touchdown put an exclamation point in a game that featured Thomas' season highs in catches and targets. It seemed early this season that Trevor Siemian had better chemistry with Emmanuel Sanders, however Thomas has seen as many if not more targets than Sanders in four of the last five games. He's also held a two to nothing touchdown lead during the span.

Thomas caught five of 10 targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 30-20 loss to Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

Despite drawing exactly 10 targets in each of the past four games, Thomas still hasn't topped 79 yards since Week 4 in Tampa Bay. Things haven't gone much better for Emmanuel Sanders, who caught five of 11 targets for 47 yards in Sunday's loss. Unless Trevor Siemian improves his downfield passing, Thomas and Sanders will find it difficult to make the most of their impressive volume.

Thomas caught five of 10 targets for 79 yards in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

There has been frustration surrounding Denver's offense hesitancy or inability to go deep thus far this season. Thomas' 40-yard snag in the fourth quarter, in which he leaped up and over the defender, makes one wonder why the Broncos don't go for it more often. The catch was just Thomas' fifth of more than 20 yards on the season - well behind his career averages. It's been a rough season for Thomas as he is on pace for his lowest catch and yardage total since 2011. One of his few bright spots this season has been his four touchdowns in his last six games - putting him on pace to surpass last year's mediocre total of six.
