Broncos | Demaryius Thomas wants Megatron deal

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 09:29:31 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is looking for a deal similar to Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson's deal that averages $16 million per season with $48 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is a first-round consideration in most drafts and should be one of the top five receivers selected. He doesn't seem in danger of missing any games due to holdout, but it's worth watching.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas was busy in 2014

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 18:43:55 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas' 184 targets last year were the most in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Although Thomas is currently holding out for a long-term deal, he will resume his role as Peyton Manning's favorite target as soon as he returns to the field. He is a sure-fire WR1 and should be in the discussion for the best fantasy option at the position.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas to skip camp?

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 20:35:15 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is not expected to report to training camp unless a long-term deal is reached before the July 15 deadline to sign franchise players to extensions, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: While there is a chance that Thomas' timing with Peyton Manning could suffer if he continues to stay away from the team, he should still be considered a WR1.

Broncos | Peyton Manning not happy

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 20:23:48 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is upset that WR Demaryius Thomas doesn't have a new deal and isn't practicing with the team, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday, June 11.

Fantasy Tip: Although the extra practice reps certainly wouldn't hurt, Thomas will be back on the field eventually. Meanwhile, the lost time won't change the fact that Thomas is a WR1 and Manning is a QB1 in all formats.

Broncos | DT not expected in camp without deal

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 17:04:23 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas isn't expected to report to training camp if he does not have a new contract by that point.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is fully expected to have a new contract, but it appears the receive is willing to try to force the Broncos' hand. It is highly unlikely the Broncos don't meet Thomas' demands, as they won't want to head into the season with a receiving corps of Emmanuel Sanders, Andre Caldwell and Cody Latimer, in what could be Peyton Manning's last season.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas' contract will get done

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 14:59:57 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas was not present at minicamp Tuesday, June 9, as he awaits a long-term deal. Head coach Gary Kubiak said he is very confident that the long-term deal will get done.

Fantasy Tip: As Kubiak also said, it's a matter of when, not if, Thomas will return. If a long-term deal somehow doesn't get done, he will still play with his one-year franchise tag. And as long as Peyton Manning is still throwing his way, he's a top-tier fantasy wide receiver.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas has deadline

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 05:57:23 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas has until July 15 to reach a new deal with the team or else they can't sign a new deal until after the season. It would cost $15.39 million to place the franchise tag on him in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas' holdout should affect him too much right now. However, if it lingers into training camp and the preseason, his timing with Peyton Manning could suffer. Timing is everything in that offense. He's still one of the top receivers in fantasy.

NFL | Potential 2016 free-agent WR class stout

Wed, 20 May 2015 09:28:45 -0700

The upcoming group of potential free-agent wide receivers includes four of the positions most dominant players, including Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant, Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green and Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, according to Spotrac.com. All four players are engaging in contract discussions on some level with their current teams.

Fantasy Tip: While it looks impressive on paper, the reality of any of these guys hitting the open market seems extremely low, let alone the idea of all four of them at the same time. Nevertheless, each one has something extra to play for in 2015, which only helps their fantasy value, all things being equal. Each player makes for a fine WR1 to build a fantasy team around.

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.
