Broncos | GM questions Demaryius Thomas' absence

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 12:21:24 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas has decided not to participate in offseason workouts because he does not want to suffer an injury, but general manager John Elway does not know why Thomas is sitting out. "That makes no sense to me, him not getting hurt," Elway said. "If he gets hurt here, he's covered. If he gets hurt on his own... I don't understand it all. It makes no sense for him."

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is looking for a long-term contract from the team and has decided to skip the voluntary workouts. Thomas was one of the better fantasy receivers in 2014 and should be one of the first few selected in drafts next season.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas plays waiting game

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 18:14:29 -0700

The Denver Broncos and WR Demaryius Thomas are unlikely to reach a long-term deal soon. It is likely that Thomas' representation waits to see what kind of deal the Dallas Cowboys and WR Dez Bryant reach before proceeding with a deal for his client. Thomas will be paid $12.822 million on the franchise tag this year, and that's close to the $13 million per year the Broncos offered last summer, so Denver can afford to wait.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is in the fold for the 2015 season one way or the other, and he will be a top-notch fantasy option at his position once again. He is resting his ankle and not working out with Peyton Manning right now, but he’ll be plenty up to speed by the time the season rolls around.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas excited about offense

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 14:46:58 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas thinks the team will have a much more balanced offense under new head coach Gary Kubiak in 2015. "They've got everybody saying we're going to run, run, run and I know the coaches have run the ball before and that's good, I think," Thomas said. "We know we can throw, we know we have guys who can make plays, I don't think coach Kubiak is going to just ignore that. But I think we all feel like if we can add in a good running game, you can win the Super Bowl."

Fantasy Tip: Despite the fact that the Broncos will likely be more of a run-first team in 2015, Thomas should remain a WR1 for fantasy football owners, and he's worth taking with an early-round pick with Peyton Manning back for what could be his final season.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas sitting out workouts

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 10:40:28 -0700

Correcting a previous report, Denver Broncos franchise free-agent WR Demaryius Thomas (ankle) is not working out with QB Peyton Manning and the other receivers at Duke University because he is allowing his ankle to heal.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas could miss all of the offseason workouts because of his contract situation. Thomas still likely will play for the Broncos in 2015 but may not receive the long-term deal he is looking for this offseason. Thomas should be one of the top fantasy receivers next season and be selected in one of the early rounds of drafts.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas' ankle fine

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 16:05:52 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (ankle, Achilles') took "about a month" to recover from an ankle/Achilles' injury that he suffered last December. Thomas said his ankle will be fine this offseason. "Ankle will be fine, I could go out and run routes right now if I had to," Thomas said. "But I don't want to have any pain, I'm pretty sure I'll be good in another month or so, with the Achilles', I'll be fine, I'll be great."

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is an elite NFL receiver that should be taken early in fantasy football drafts in 2015. Having Peyton Manning back for another season solidifies Thomas' standing as one of the most valuable fantasy receivers.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas will miss workouts

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 11:12:25 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas will not be present at the Broncos' offseason program or attend workouts with QB Peyton Manning at Duke University. Thomas is currently in Los Angeles for a charity event.

Fantasy Tip: Not much to take away from this news. As long as Thomas is healthy heading into training camp, there's no reason to think he shouldn't be considered a top-five fantasy wide receiver this season.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas has non-exclusive tag

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 23:55:06 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas has the non-exclusive franchise tag, which means Thomas can have talks with other teams but those teams must supply two draft picks to the Broncos if Thomas signs with another club.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is still worth every penny of the $12.823 million salary he would get in 2015 and is a solid WR1 option.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas to get franchise tag

Sun, 01 Mar 2015 20:09:10 -0800

The Denver Broncos are expected to use the franchise tag on WR Demaryius Thomas Monday, March 2, all but ensuring the team keeps the wideout for the 2015 season. They are expected to use the "nonexclusive" tag, which makes it possible for other teams to negotiate with Thomas. However, the team has the right to match any offer, and if he is signed away the team is compensated by the signing team with two first-round draft picks.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas appears headed back for Denver for at least one more season and that's great news for his fantasy prospects. Look for what happened to Eric Decker when he left Peyton Manning and the team for Geno Smith and the New York Jets.

Broncos | Tag coming for Demaryius Thomas

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 17:04:54 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent WR Demaryius Thomas will have the franchise tag placed on him if the team can't work out a long-term deal in the next few days, according to general manager John Elway. Both sides have had the framework of a five-year deal on the table over the last year. The franchise tag for receivers this year is expected to be in the $12.7 to $12.9 million range.

Fantasy Tip: So Thomas, as expected, will remain in Denver for at least one more season. That'll assure that he will remain an elite WR1 option for fantasy owners if Peyton Manning returns, which seems to be the case. Expect Thomas to come off the board in the late first or early second round of fake drafts.
