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.
Dec 14 - 8:02 PM

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.
Dec 12 - 7:09 PM

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.
Dec 11 - 2:13 PM

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.
Dec 10 - 1:42 PM

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.

Dec 8 - 10:05 AM

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.
Dec 7 - 7:46 PM

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.
Dec 5 - 1:06 PM

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.

Dec 4 - 8:07 PM

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.
Dec 4 - 5:06 PM

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.
Dec 4 - 1:46 PM

Demaryius Thomas (ankle) was limited on Wednesday.

Thomas got his ankle stepped on during practice. He should be fine for Week 14. Thomas will be a high-end WR1 against the Bills.
Dec 3 - 4:24 PM

Demaryius Thomas caught six passes for 63 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 13 win over the Chiefs.

He was targeted a team-high 13 times. Thomas beat Chiefs CB Sean Smith on a 24-yard fade route for his touchdown. He's taken on a bigger role in the short pass game with Julius Thomas sidelined, and had just one catch over 20 yards. Thomas is on pace for a 117/1,673/15 line. He'll remain a high-end WR1 for a Week 14 matchup with the Bills.
Dec 1 - 12:39 AM

Demaryius Thomas caught 10-of-13 targets for 87 yards and three touchdowns in Denver's Week 12 win over the Dolphins.

With Peyton Manning struggling with his deep-ball accuracy and the Dolphins trying to keep everything underneath, Thomas got to work on short-to-intermediate routes, and scored his seventh, eighth and ninth touchdowns of the season, none of which went for more than 14 yards. Thomas is now the owner of a ridiculous 82/1,192/9 line with five games to go.
Nov 23 - 8:01 PM

Demaryius Thomas caught seven passes for 103 yards in the Broncos' Week 11 loss to the Rams.

Thomas was targeted a team-high 10 times, and went over 100 yards receiving for the seventh game in a row. He was held to just one grab for much of the first half, but after Julius Thomas (ankle) and Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) went down, Thomas was the go-to guy for Peyton Manning. Manning tried forcing one of his interceptions into double-coverage to Thomas. If Julius and Sanders miss extended time, Thomas is going to hog targets and be the focus of opposing defenses. He's an elite WR1 for Week 12 against the Dolphins.
