Demaryius Thomas caught 6-of-10 targets for 40 yards and one touchdown in the Broncos' Week 7 win over the Texans.

He's now seen double-digit targets in back-to-back games after not seeing any more than seven in the previous five contests. Thomas could have had a much bigger night, but had one catch called back on a holding penalty and then dropped another pass that would have gone for 20-plus yards. His four-yard touchdown was a simple back-shoulder play against Kareem Jackson. Thomas gets the Chargers in Week 8. He posted a 5-35 line against them in Week 6.
Oct 25 - 12:12 AM

Demaryius Thomas caught 5-of-10 targets for 35 yards in the Broncos' Week 6 loss to the Chargers, also losing a fumble.

Thomas' fumble came with the Broncos losing 21-10 with 3:43 remaining in the fourth quarter, ending any realistic chance they had at a comeback. This being the Chargers, Denver still almost tied it, but Thomas' gaffe made it much harder than it should have been. Thomas nearly had a score earlier in the half, but the Chargers called a timeout before he caught a fade near the out-of-bounds line. Thomas is settling in as a mid-range WR2 in the Broncos' subdued offense. The Texans are a tough Week 7 matchup.
Oct 14 - 12:16 AM

Demaryius Thomas caught 5-of-7 targets for 49 yards and a touchdown Week 5 against the Falcons.

Paxton Lynch was not good in this game, and the entire passing game suffered. Thomas did not make any notable plays before finding the end zone on a three-yard screen in the fourth quarter. The touchdown saved his fantasy day, but Thomas will be happy to see Trevor Siemian back in the lineup Thursday night against the Chargers. Thomas will be a solid WR2 in that matchup.
Oct 9 - 8:06 PM

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

Thomas tweaked his hip in Week 4 but was able to play through the injury. We imagine he'll do the same in Week 5. Demaryius should have a field day against Atlanta on Sunday. Consider him a borderline WR1 in that matchup.
Oct 6 - 3:25 PM

Demaryius Thomas caught 6-of-7 targets for 94 yards in the Broncos' Week 4 win over the Bucs.

Thomas seemed to tweak his troublesome hip early in the proceedings, but shook it off for his third straight 90-yard game. Thomas has only 27 total targets, but is suddenly on pace for 84/1,328/8. That won't keep up if Thomas' looks don't increase, but it stands to reason that they will.
Oct 2 - 9:05 PM

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.
Sep 18 - 9:04 PM

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.
Sep 18 - 3:08 PM

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.
