Demaryius Thomas secured 5-of-12 targets for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' Divisional Round loss to the Colts.
Thomas got the best of Colts S LaRon Landry on a one-yard touchdown catch to cap Denver's opening drive. Demaryius had two costly drops on second-quarter bubble screens that might have gone for big gains, however, and went to halftime with just the one catch on seven first-half targets. Thomas saved his stat line with a number of garbage-time catches as Peyton Manning attempted to bolster his career playoff stats with the game already in the books. Demaryius is an impending free agent. We would be shocked if GM John Elway let him get away, using the franchise tag if forced to. Jan 11 - 8:33 PM

Demaryius Thomas caught eight passes for 115 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Raiders.

Thomas posted his 10th 100-yard game of the season, but he also dropped an easy touchdown on a back-shoulder throw and couldn't get his feet down in bounds on another chunk play. No matter. Thomas was dominant once again this season, finishing with a career-high 111 catches for a career-high 1,619 yards and 11 TDs while playing in all 16 games for the third straight year. Since Peyton Manning came to Denver in 2012, DT is averaging 99.0 catches for 1494.3 yards and 11.6 scores per season. He'll rest some nicks on his fingers during the bye week.

Demaryius Thomas (ankle, hip) is practicing in full for Week 17.

Thomas will be good to go for his usual role against the Raiders. The only concern for players in DFS leagues is if the Broncos get up too big, too early, sending Thomas to the bench before the game is through.

Demaryius Thomas caught seven passes for 115 yards in the Broncos' Week 16 loss to the Bengals.

He was targeted a game-high 13 times. Thomas could have had a much bigger night, as he had a 50-yard catch called back on a holding penalty and then had another 30-yard gain brought back on offensive pass interference. Thomas was winning his matchups, but lost out near the end zone to Emmanuel Sanders, who caught two short touchdowns. The Broncos play the Raiders in Week 17.

Demaryius Thomas (ankle) is practicing in full for Week 16.

Thomas avoided setbacks with his ankle in Week 15, and is locked and loaded as a WR1 for the fantasy finals.

Demaryius Thomas caught six passes for 123 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 15 win at San Diego.

Thomas got back on track after last week's nightmare, easily beating both Brandon Flowers and Shareece Wright whenever he wanted. The highlight was a back-shoulder throw on Flowers that went for a 28-yard score, his 11th of the season (to go with eight 100-yard days). Although the Broncos are shifting toward more of a run-heavy gameplan, Thomas saw 11 of Peyton Manning's 20 throws in this one and will be an elite WR1 against the 49ers in Week 16.

Demaryius Thomas (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 15.

Thomas was upgraded to full on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. He's a top-three receiver play for Week 15.

Demaryius Thomas (ankle) returned to Broncos practice Thursday.

He'll likely be listed as "limited," but Thomas is fully on track for his regular role against the Chargers. He's a top-three WR1 for the fantasy semifinals.

Demaryius Thomas (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Thomas hurt his ankle when a teammate stepped on it last Wednesday. He was fine to play Week 14 against the Bills, but it was clearly bothering him. Thomas will be fine for Week 15 against the Chargers. He'll run most of his routes against burnable RCB Shareece Wright. Thomas remains an elite WR1.

C.J. Anderson said Demaryius Thomas' ankle was bothering him during Sunday's win over the Bills.

Thomas tweaked his ankle when a teammate stepped on it during Wednesday's practice. However, he practiced on a limited basis Friday and earned a "probable" tag. Although DT was held to 2-11-0 Sunday (his worst game since 2012), the ankle did not appear to be the real culprit here. Peyton Manning attempted just 20 passes as the Broncos rode Anderson and the defense to a win. Expect a bounce-back in Week 15 against San Diego's leaky pass defense.

Demaryius Thomas had two catches for 11 yards in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Bills.

The two catches are Thomas' lowest since Week 6 of the 2012 season. It came on a day the Broncos rode the run game and their defense, leading to just 20 Peyton Manning pass attempts. Emmanuel Sanders also got the call on more of the bubble screens. Thomas will obviously bounce back, but the matchup at San Diego isn't spectacular as he'll see Brandon Flowers. When these two teams matched up on a Thursday night in mid-October, DT still got loose for 8-105-0.

Demaryius Thomas (ankle) ran routes and caught passes during the portion of Broncos practice open to the media on Friday.

It puts him on track to practice today and start Sunday's game against the Bills, where Demaryius will be a top-five WR1 play, as usual. Coach John Fox said on Thursday that he expects Demaryius to be "fine" for Week 14 despite turning in a "limited" practice on Wednesday and taking Thursday's session off.

Walk-year WR Demaryius Thomas says he'd take a "hometown discount" to re-sign with the Broncos.

"Of course, why not?" Thomas said of the idea. "Peyton (Manning) is one of the best in the game, and I've been blessed to have him as my quarterback. I learned so much from him. Denver, of course I gotta take my hats off to them, because they took a chance of drafting me in the first round." Wanting to re-up with Manning is highly logical, but Manning likely only has 1-2 years remaining in the league beyond 2014. In the midst of an historic campaign, we fully expect Thomas to cash in this winter. That is, of course, provided he's not slapped with the franchise tag. If Thomas takes a discount from the Broncos, it won't be much.

Broncos coach John Fox expects Demaryius Thomas (ankle) to be "fine" for Sunday's game against the Bills.

"It's a bruise, and he'll be fine," were Fox's exact words after Thomas sat out Thursday's practice. Thomas got stepped on in Wednesday's session, but it's clearly not a serious injury. He can be fired up as Week 14's No. 1 receiver.

Demaryius Thomas (ankle) appeared to be sitting out in Thursday's practice.

Thomas was on the practice field, but not participating in the estimation of beat writer Jeff Legwold. It's possible the Broncos could slap a limited tag on Thomas for the second-straight day, but either way, it's his Friday status that's now shaping up as key. Thomas got stepped on in Wednesday's practice. At this point, there's no real reason to believe he will sit against the Bills, but his status is worth monitoring closely.
