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.

New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall is expected to see New England Patriots CB Malcolm Butler often in the Week 7 matchup between the Jets and Patriots. Butler has become the Patriots No. 1 cornerback but has already given up four touchdown passes and a 119 passer rating.
Fantasy Tip: Marshall ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) and the Jets would welcome any one-on-one matchups with Butler, but the Patriots will likely give Butler help and focus a lot of their attention on stopping Marshall, making Eric Decker ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) perhaps the much better target in daily formats.
