Demaryius Thomas says he feels the best he's felt since coming into the NFL.
"This is the best I've felt in my whole career," was Thomas' exact quote. Thomas dealt with a hip issue for all of 2016, getting hurt on literally the first play of the year. Headed into his age-30 season, Thomas is gunning for his sixth-straight 1,000-yard campaign. May 25 - 3:26 PM

Demaryius Thomas hopes to increase his yards after the catch in 2017.

Per Pro Football Focus, Thomas had 330 yards after the catch last season, good for just 25th in the league. Thomas had 492 in 2015 (sixth), and 668 in 2014 (second). With the return of OC Mike McCoy, Thomas is banking on an increase in receiver screens. "That was kind of one of my first thoughts — the screen passes," Thomas said. "The years we played together with Mike were some of my best years. I look forward to it this year as well." Thomas dealt with a hip issue in 2016. He's posted five straight 1,000-yard seasons.

Demaryius Thomas spent the early part of the offseason working on getting his hips healthy.

Thomas was bothered by a sore hip for much of 2016. He didn't require surgery, but needed a few months of rest and rehab. "I'll be on top of it," Thomas insisted. Banged up and playing with new, young quarterbacks, Thomas had a down 2016 by his standards, but still ended up the WR19 by total points. He could be a value this season.

Coach Vance Joseph challenged Demaryius Thomas on Tuesday, saying he wants Thomas "to be a dominant player all the time" and "become a leader."

"I don’t want him to ease into games," Joseph continued. "I want him to step out and be a guy. It's time. He can take over a game, but I want his mindset every game to be ... to walk on the field and take over the game." By no means did Thomas have a bad 2016, but his catches (90), yards (1,083), and touchdowns (5) were all five-year lows. Downgrading to Trevor Siemian from Peyton Manning was the main reason, but Thomas does play passive at times. He had just two 100-yard games but was top ten in targets.
Mar 29 - 9:39 AM

Demaryius Thomas caught 4-of-6 targets for 47 yards Week 17 against the Raiders.

It was a bit of a disappointing day considering Emmanuel Sanders left early in the first quarter, and Trevor Siemian just missed Thomas on what should have been a long play in the second. Still, Thomas continued his now 39-game streak with at least six targets, and he has not seen fewer than five targets since Week 6 of 2012. Even with the quarterback situation in flux, that target reliability keeps Thomas ticking over as a solid WR2 with the upside for more. Unless the Broncos add more weapons or a veteran quarterback in the offseason, that is exactly how he should be valued next summer.
Jan 2 - 12:31 AM

Demaryius Thomas caught 3-of-8 targets for 20 yards in the Broncos' Week 16 loss to the Chiefs.

Thomas' eight targets were second-most behind Devontae Booker's 10. Trevor Siemian had zero success downfield and as a passer altogether. The good news is Thomas continues to see heavy targets. He's seen at least eight passes come his way in every game since Week 5. Thomas will be a Week 17 WR2 against Oakland.

Demaryius Thomas caught 7-of-11 targets for 91 yards in the Broncos' Week 15 loss to the Patriots.

Thomas could have had an eighth catch and 100-yard day, but got blown up late by Devin McCourty. Thomas was staggered, but checked back into the game a few plays later. The Broncos' receiver corps continues to be extremely difficult to forecast on a weekly basis, but Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders are both comfortably inside the top 18. The Chiefs are on tap for Week 16.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 07:35:00 PM

Demaryius Thomas caught 10-of-16 targets for 126 yards in the Broncos' Week 14 loss to the Titans.

The 16 targets look amazing, but Trevor Siemian fired off 51 attempts on a day the Broncos' broken running game remained nonexistent. Thomas had to come back and stop on a lofted deep ball he turned into a 34-yard gain, his longest catch of the day. He was also targeted a couple times in the end zone, but CB LeShaun Sims broke one up on 3rd-and-goal. Thomas will be a solid, high-floor WR2 next week at home against the Patriots.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 07:15:00 PM

Demaryius Thomas caught 6-of-10 targets for 61 yards in the Broncos' Week 13 win over the Jaguars.

The Broncos only threw for 104 yards in this game with Paxton Lynch at quarterback, so Demaryius owners who started him should be wiping their brow that he came out with this much production. Trevor Siemian is battling a foot sprain and his status for Week 14 against the Titans is questionable. Thomas will be a WR2 if Siemian plays, and a boom-bust WR3 if Lynch gets another nod.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 05:26:00 PM

Demaryius Thomas caught 5-of-8 targets for 60 yards in Week 12 against the Chiefs.

Thomas was held in check with Marcus Peters shadowing him. He had just two catches in the first half, but was able to do some damage late in the game and in overtime. Thomas has another tough matchup against Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey in Week 13, but his volume and touchdown upside will keep him locked as a WR2.
Mon, Nov 28, 2016 01:31:00 AM

Demaryius Thomas caught 8-of-11 targets for 87 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' Week 10 win over the Saints.

Thomas led the Broncos in every receiving category. He has drawn at least 10 targets in five straight games. Thomas made three sensational catches, which doesn't even include his touchdown, where he skied over Delvin Breaux in the end zone. Thomas will be an elite WR2 when the Broncos come off their bye in Week 12.
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 05:41:00 PM

Demaryius Thomas caught 5-of-10 targets for 56 yards in Week 9 against the Raiders.

Thomas did all his damage in the first two quarters, catching four of his passes for 50 yards. He lost targets to Emmanuel Sanders in the second half. Despite managing solid games the last two weeks, Thomas has limited upside with Trevor Siemian starting. He's a midrange WR2 for Week 10 against the Saints.
Mon, Nov 7, 2016 12:57:00 AM

Demaryius Thomas caught 5-of-10 targets for 79 yards in the Broncos' Week 8 win over the Chargers.

Thomas tied for the team lead in targets with Emmanuel Sanders and made Denver's biggest play in the passing game on a 40-yard reception in the first half. Thomas' fantasy value has diminished with Trevor Siemian under center, but he remains a solid every-week WR2. He gets a leaky Oakland secondary next.
Sun, Oct 30, 2016 07:40:00 PM

Demaryius Thomas (hip) was limited in Wednesday and Thursday's practices.

Thomas has tweaked his hip a few times this season, but will be good to go against the Chargers. He's a mid-range WR2.
Thu, Oct 27, 2016 06:46:00 PM

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.
