Thomas had 10 catches on 13 targets for 87 yards and three touchdowns Sunday against the Dolphins.
Thomas' excellent run since the Broncos' Week 4 bye continues, and while his streak of seven straight games with at least 100 yards ended, his three touchdowns ended a four-game streak without a score. Thomas remains an elite fantasy wideout and will look to keep his excellent play going in Week 13 against the Chiefs, who he scored a touchdown against back in Week 2.

Thomas had seven catches on 10 targets for 103 yards Sunday against the Rams.
That's now seven games in a row with at least 100 yards for Thomas, though he's gone four straight without scoring a touchdown after finding the end zone five times in the first three games of the streak. Up next in Week 12 is a tough matchup against a Dolphins defense allowing the second-fewest passing yards per game this season, though Thomas could be heavily-targeted, as Julius Thomas could miss out after suffering an ankle injury Sunday, and Emmanuel Sanders could be absent as well due to a concussion.

Thomas had 11 catches on 14 targets for 108 yards Sunday against the Raiders.
Another solid day for Thomas, though he failed to catch even a single one of quarterback Peyton Manning's five touchdown passes. He's now at six straight games with at least 100 yards, and he'll look to continue the streak in Week 11 against the Rams, who allowed 112 yards to Larry Fitzgerald on Sunday.

Thomas has seven catches on 11 targets for 127 yards during Sunday's 43-21 loss to the Patriots.
After failing to reach even 65 yards in the first three games of the season, Thomas has been one of the best receivers in football since the Broncos' Week 4 bye, posting more than 100 yards in five straight games, while scoring five touchdowns in that span. All told, he has 41 catches on 60 targets for 753 yards in the last five games, and he'll look to extend his streak in Week 10 at Oakland.

Thomas caught 8-of-12 targets for 105 yards in Thursday's 35-21 win over the Chargers.
You know things are going well when many fantasy owners will view this as a disappointing performance, even in PPR leagues. Thomas played a strong game against a banged-up San Diego secondary, but he surprisingly failed to find the end zone for the first time since Week 3, as all three of Peyton Manning's touchdown passes went to Emmanuel Sanders. Despite his tough matchup against the New England secondary next week, Thomas will be one of the top options at his position, boasting a ridiculous 34 receptions for 626 yards and five touchdowns over his last four games. He recorded at least eight receptions, nine targets and 100 yards in each of those games.

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.
