|Broncos | Demaryius Thomas playing lighter|
Tue, 02 Aug 2016 20:23:23 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas altered his diet during the offseason, shedding six pounds to improve his quickness and durability. His goal is to get down to 222 pounds, down from about 232 last season. "I wanted to come back a little lighter so I can get through the season," Thomas said. "Hopefully it'll help with the injuries and everything, be quick on my feet, be in better shape. I think that'll help my game."
Fantasy Tip: Thomas has an average draft position in the high 30's, making him a third-round pick in most leagues of 12 or more teams. He is a solid WR2 or top-notch flex play heading into 2016, but his value is down from previous years due to a downgrade at the quarterback position and the fact he has to share the ball more with Emmanuel Sanders.

|Broncos | Demaryius Thomas focused, healthy |
Thu, 14 Jul 2016 21:16:03 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Thomas still managed 101 catches for 1,304 yards in what was considered by some to be a down year. The quarterback situation in Denver could hurt his stock slightly, but Thomas has been one of the most reliable fantasy receivers and could creep into WR1 territory in 2016.

|Broncos | Demaryius Thomas fell behind last year|
Mon, 20 Jun 2016 13:20:28 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas said he was thinking too much last season. Thomas missed a good portion of the 2015 offseason program while waiting for a long-term deal and his mother was set to be released from prison. Thomas said it was tough trying to catch up with the new offense after missing so much time and with his off-field life.
Fantasy Tip: Thomas won't be behind this year, but he will be playing with a new quarterback. He's a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 consideration in fantasy drafts this offseason.

|Broncos | Demaryius Thomas not worried about QB|
Thu, 02 Jun 2016 10:28:45 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is not worried about the team's uncertainty at the quarterback position this offseason. "Oh we're not worried," Thomas said. "We still got time. These guys are going to be fine. Mark Sanchez has won playoff games. I can't say much about (the experience of) Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian, but they've been great so far. So we'll be fine. We got playmakers around them and coaches will put them in the right situation, and of course we've still got our great defense."
Fantasy Tip: The Broncos have plenty of weapons in the passing game and on the ground, but whoever wins this competition -- it'll most likely be Sanchez -- can't be safely considered anything more than a midrange fantasy backup. Lynch's value lies in keeper/dynasty formats for now.

|Broncos | Demaryius Thomas caps rough postseason|
Sun, 07 Feb 2016 19:53:43 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Thomas finished with seven catches for 60 yards in Denver's three playoff games, but he did haul in 105 passes for more than 1,300 yards during the regular season. At worst, he should be a high-end WR2 in 2016.

|Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders won't face Josh Norman|
Fri, 05 Feb 2016 09:53:35 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Thomas has six catches for 52 yards in just two playoff games this year, and he's been plagued by costly drops throughout the year. However, he finished 2015 with 105 catches for 1,304 yards and six touchdowns, so he's still a top receiving talent. But it won't be easy against Norman, who is having an All-Pro season.

|Broncos | Demaryius Thomas was shut down by Pats|
Thu, 21 Jan 2016 09:58:49 -0800
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas had just one catch for 36 yards against New England Patriots CB Logan Ryan in Week 12. The matchup is expected to be the same for the AFC Championship game, and Patriots CB Malcolm Butler will likely match up against WR Emmanuel Sanders.
Fantasy Tip: Don't pass up the fact that Thomas ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) caught just one of his 13 targets in that game. He should have a better performance this time out, but it's still a tough draw, and Peyton Manning hasn't been his normal self all year. At a high FantasyScore price, Thomas isn't all that attractive.

|Broncos | Stay away from Demaryius Thomas?|
Tue, 19 Jan 2016 19:03:04 -0800
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas will face a New England Patriots pass defense in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24, which allowed 240.7 yards per game through the air, ranking 17th in the NFL during the regular season.
Fantasy Tip: It appears Thomas ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) is in line for a decent stat line, but considering Bill Belichick and defensive coordinator Matt Patricia go through painstaking work to take away the opposing top receiver and make others beat them, Thomas looks like a risky FantasyScore play. He managed just one grab for 36 yards in the first meeting Nov. 29. Sanders looks like the better play, as he was last week against Pittsburgh, and back in Week 11 vs. New England.

|Broncos | Denver receivers struggle with drops|
Tue, 19 Jan 2016 10:25:09 -0800
The Denver Broncos had 31 dropped passes in the regular season, which was around two per game. WR Demaryius Thomas had a career-high 17 drops this season. Thomas had five drops in the first meeting with the New England Patriots.
Fantasy Tip: Thomas only had one catch on a whopping 13 targets against the Pats earlier this year. Expect much better numbers from him in the AFC Championship game this weekend.
