Demaryius Thomas caught 6-of-7 targets for 100 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' Week 3 win over the Bengals.
Thomas lost a fumble and was having a slow fantasy day while seemingly taking a clear backseat to Emmanuel Sanders (13 targets) until Trevor Siemian found him streaking deep down the middle for a 55-yard fourth-quarter touchdown bomb. Thomas has now put together back-to-back games of 90-plus yards. He gets an even more favorable matchup with the Broncos face Tampa Bay's weak pass defense in Week 4. Sep 25 - 4:23 PM

Demaryius Thomas (hip) is practicing in full for Week 3.

It confirms he's fully over his hip issue. Thomas is a WR2 for Week 3 against the Bengals.
Sep 21 - 4:54 PM

Demaryius Thomas reeled in five catches for 90 yards on seven targets Sunday in the Broncos' Week 2 win over the Colts.

Thomas was barely heard from in the opener but bounced back with a solid showing in Week 2, albeit against arguably the league’s most banged-up secondary. 44 of his yards came on a first-quarter catch-and-run that led to a Broncos field goal. It didn’t look like Thomas was on a snap count despite missing practice time with a hip injury during the week. We’re still not sold on Trevor Siemian, which reduces Thomas to borderline WR2 status against the Bengals in Week 3.

Demaryius Thomas (hip) is active for Week 2 against the Colts.

Thomas was limited at practice throughout the week and won't be 100 percent on Sunday. Playing hurt in a run-first offense is a bad combination, though Thomas is still in play as a WR2/3. Austin Davis, Lorenzo Doss, Bennie Fowler, Jeff Heuerman, Kyle Peko, Connor McGovern and Ty Sambrailo round out the Broncos Week 2 inactives. Derek Wolfe (neck) is active.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Demaryius Thomas will test his hip injury before the game, but he is expected to play.

Officially listed as questionable, Thomas was very limited in practice all week and coach Gary Kubiak did not sound confident about his ability to play. He still appears to be something of a game-time decision, but it sounds like he will at least give it a go. Even if he plays, Thomas could be limited or leave the game early. It is a great matchup against the Colts, but Thomas is nothing more than an upside WR3 play.
Sep 18 - 8:41 AM

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak was entirely noncommittal Friday when asked about Demaryius Thomas' (hip) Week 2 availability.

Per the Denver Post, Thomas "stood on the sideline more often than he played" in practice all week, and Kubiak wouldn't say how much Thomas participated in Friday's session. "He took the reps we wanted him to take," Kubiak insisted. "Hopefully, he’ll continue to get better tomorrow." If Thomas does give it a go against the Colts, he's clearly going to be far short of 100 percent. His availability will be a game-time decision.

Demaryius Thomas (hip) is questionable for Week 2 against the Colts.

Thomas has been limited at practice this week. It looks like Thomas will play, though he'll be doing it at much less than 100 percent. Despite a favorable matchup against Indy's patchwork secondary, Thomas is a risky WR2.
Sep 16 - 2:33 PM

Troy Renck of Denver7 believes Demaryius Thomas (hip) is "on track" to play against the Colts in Week 2.

Thomas was only on the field for about a third of the team's offensive snaps on Thursday but looked more comfortable during Friday's session. Renck said he looked "even better" running his routes, which is obviously an encouraging sign. Thomas admitted Thursday that he's worried about cutting and taking hits but his presence at practice suggests he'll be a go for Sunday. He has a decent matchup waiting for him against Indy and should be viewed as a WR2, assuming he plays his usual snaps.
Sep 16 - 1:35 PM

Demaryius Thomas (hip) says he's day to day.

"I ain’t gonna be feeling great," Thomas said. "But it’s getting better every day. You pray about it, keep getting treatment, and hopefully by game day, you’re ready to go and nothing freaky happens." Thomas clearly isn't convinced he's going to suit up against the Colts. He could end up a game-time decision for the 4:25 ET tilt. Thomas has a mouthwatering matchup in the Colts' undermanned secondary, but at well less than 100 percent with Trevor Siemian delivering him the ball, Thomas' WR2 case needs to be re-evaluated in light of his health.

Demaryius Thomas (hip) believes he can play against the Colts in Week 2 but admitted he has concerns about "coming out of cuts and getting hit."

In other words, he's at much less than 100 percent. Thomas was limited at practice for the second day in a row, playing on only a third of the team's offensive snaps. With Denver kicking off at 4:25 PM ET on Sunday, Thomas is shaping up as a risky fantasy play. Emmanuel Sanders will get more work if the Broncos sit Thomas or employ him as a decoy.
Sep 15 - 4:47 PM

Demaryius Thomas (hip) was limited at Thursday's practice.

Thomas was on the field for a third of the team's snaps on Thursday, though coach Gary Kubiak said he showed progress. He won't be 100 percent but all signs point to Demaryius playing Sunday against Indianapolis. He'll be a risky WR2 for that matchup.
Sep 15 - 4:08 PM

Coach Gary Kubiak expects Demaryius Thomas (hip) to play Sunday.

"He’s on course to make it to Sunday," Kubiak said. "Today was a step in the right direction." Thomas practiced Wednesday, but was noticeably limited. Even at less than full health, he'll be a WR2 if active against the Colts.

Sep 14 - 6:19 PM

Demaryius Thomas (hip) was officially limited in Wednesday's practice.

Thomas was seen punching at his balky hip in an effort to loosen it up as practice went along Wednesday. He's certainly nowhere near 100 percent, and will probably still be no more than a WR3 in a dream spot against the Colts this week. We'll continue to update Thomas' status in the coming days.
Sep 14 - 3:33 PM

According to the Denver Post's Cameron Wolfe, Demaryius Thomas was "grabbing his hip" and was seen "grimacing" at times during Wednesday's practice.

This obviously doesn't sound good and is something to watch after Thomas injured his hip in the Week 1 opener against the Panthers. It's a good sign that he's practicing, but it's pretty evident he's not near 100 percent. The Week 2 matchup against the Colts is juicy, but Thomas' status is uncertain.
Sep 14 - 2:40 PM

Demaryius Thomas (hip) is practicing Wednesday.

There were some concerns over the weekend and earlier this week that Thomas was dealing with a significant hip issue, but he appears ready to play through the pain. While much of it relies on Trevor Siemian's ability to get him the ball, Thomas is in a dream Week 2 spot against an ugly Colts defense.
