Demaryius Thomas WR DEN 15 Hrs2 Comments

Thomas caught 8-of-9 targets for 171 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 42-17 win over the 49ers.

Thomas did all of his damage during the competitive portion of the game, as his final reception came with 10 minutes remaining in the third quarter. He had gains of 49, 40 and 32 yards, plus he was on the receiving end of Peyton Manning's record-setting 509th career passing touchdown. Thomas has been the top producer in nearly any format over the last three weeks, with a ridiculous 26 receptions for 521 yards and five touchdowns. Despite starting the season with three middling games and a bye week, he ranks among the league leaders in receptions (39), receiving yards (662) and receiving touchdowns (six). Thomas will face a tough Chargers secondary on Thursday, but he should be able to stay hot, as the San Diego defense has slipped a bit while dealing with a slew of injuries the past couple weeks.

Thomas had 10 catches on 12 targets for 124 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Jets.

After starting off the season slowly, failing to break 70 receiving yards in any of the first three games, Thomas has absolutely exploded, catching 18 passes on 28 targets for 350 yards and three touchdowns in the last two games. He's been able to score in a variety of ways, as his touchdowns in Week 5 against the Cardinals came from 31 and 86-yards out, but his Week 6 score came on a one-yard pass after two failed rushing attempts from in close. Thomas and quarterback Peyton Manning are clicking right now and they'll look to keep it going in Week 7 against a 49ers defense that is better against the run than the pass this season.

Thomas had eight catches on 16 targets for a franchise-record 226 receiving yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Cardinals.

Thomas really struggled in his first three games this season, failing to reach even 65 receiving yards, while scoring only one touchdown. That was all forgotten after Sunday's record-setting performance, as he showed once again why he is considered one of the elite wide receivers in the NFL. He broke the 100-yard mark before halftime thanks to touchdown catches of 31 and 86-yards, and he kept piling it on in the second half. He actually scored a third touchdown that went for 77 yards but it was called back due to a chop block on tight end Julius Thomas. Things should stay up for Thomas, as the Broncos will face a Jets defense in Week 6 that has really struggled against the pass this season.

Thomas had four catches on nine targets for 31 yards while adding a late two-point conversion in Sunday's 26-20 overtime loss to the Seahawks.

Fantasy owners are still waiting for Thomas' breakout game this season, as he has failed to reach 65 receiving yards, while scoring only one touchdown thus far. Thomas is getting plenty of attention from opposing defenses, which is opening things up for Emmanuel Sanders and tight end Julius Thomas, but that doesn't help fantasy owners any. The Broncos head out on a bye in Week 4 before facing the Cardinals in Week 5, not exactly a cupcake matchup for a potential breakout performance.

Thomas had five catches on seven targets for 62 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Chiefs.

Thomas' day could have been even bigger, but his 80-yard touchdown grab was negated for an illegal-man-downfield penalty on right tackle Chris Clark. It was a nice bounce back performance for Thomas, who had only 48 yards in Week 1 against the Colts. Up next is a very tough matchup at Seattle.

Thomas caught four passes for 48 yards on 11 targets in Sunday's win over the Colts.

It was an oddly inefficient night for Thomas, who picked up 26 yards on a fourth-quarter screen play, but was otherwise held in check, largely because he dropped a trio of passes. While he's struggled a bit with drops during his career, Thomas does everything else so well that it isn't a major concern. He's still poised for a big season, and may have already gotten his worst game out of the way.

Thomas failed to catch the only ball thrown his way during Saturday's preseason game against the Texans.

The pass from Peyton Manning came in the second quarter and was all the action Thomas saw on the night. Regardless of the minimal output, the goal was to get a few reps in and not get hurt, which he did successfully. Thomas is expected to lead the line on a powerful Broncos offense this season, which leaves him in a category of only a few elite fantasy wideouts.

Thomas caught five passes on five targets for 37 yards during Sunday's preseason game against the 49ers.

While he only played a limited number of snaps, Thomas still managed to lead the team in targets, catches and receiving yards. With Eric Decker now in New York, Thomas could see an uptick in targets this season, including in the red zone, making him one of fantasy's elite.

Thomas was already in mid-season form in Thursday's exhibition game against the Seahawks, hauling in five passes for 52 yards on six targets.

With Eric Decker replaced by the somewhat less threatening Emmanuel Sanders, Thomas could perhaps see an uptick in targets this season, after receiving 141 in 2012 and 143 in 2013. As for his skill, all questions have been answered on that front, but he came out of the gate running Thursday night, just in case anyone forgot.

Demaryius Thomas (personal) will miss the first four days of training camp.

Thomas is attending funeral services for his grandmother in Georgia and isn't expected back until early next week. Now entering his third season in this Peyton Manning offense, there's no concerns whatsoever with the missed time. Thomas has piled up a ridiculous 186-2,864-24 line over the last two seasons.
