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.
