The Broncos have exercised Demaryius Thomas' $4 million option bonus.

It locks Thomas into $12.5 million between salary and bonuses in 2018. Now on the wrong side of 30, Thomas is coming off his first sub-1,000 yard season since 2011 (Tebow Time). The Broncos seem to be assuming the down year was quarterback related, which is a safe assumption. Case Keenum is hardly a star, but he's a major upgrade on what the Broncos had in 2017, and improves Thomas' fantasy prospects.

Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvala reports the Broncos are expected to "officially pick up" Demaryius Thomas' $4 million option.

The Broncos could have tried to restructure his contract if they declined the option, but likely won't once they pick it up. With both Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders likely to be retained and former third-round pick Carlos Henderson returning from injury, the Broncos have plenty of weapons at receiver for whoever ends up as their quarterback in 2018.

The Broncos could ask Demaryius Thomas to take a pay cut this offseason.

Thomas has a $4 million option bonus due in March. The Broncs can void the final two years of his deal if they decline it, so there's some leverage for him to restructure. Thomas is coming off a down season, averaging just 11.4 YPR and getting held under 1,000 yards for the first time since 2011. Denver needs to clear cap space to improve their offense.
Jan 12 - 8:10 PM

Demaryius Thomas caught 6-of-8 targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' Week 17 loss to the Chiefs.

With the quiet day, Thomas finishes at 949 yards, putting him below 1,000 for the first time since 2011. That was pre-Peyton Manning in Denver. Quarterback play was the primary culprit, but Thomas also struggled with drops and failed to make big plays. His 11.2 yards per catch was a new career low. Thomas turned 30 on Christmas Day. Out of guaranteed money, Thomas has a $4 million option bonus due this offseason. Seeing as cutting him would leave behind a ton of dead money while creating little in the way of cap savings, we would expect Thomas to remain in Denver.

Demaryius Thomas caught 4-of-6 targets for 52 yards in the Broncos' Week 16 loss to the Redskins.

Even with Emmanuel Sanders and Cody Latimer sidelined, Thomas couldn't get anything going with Brock Osweiler under center. With Paxton Lynch expected to start in Week 17, Thomas will need 108 yards against the Chiefs to reach 1,000 for the sixth-straight season.

Demaryius Thomas caught 5-of-8 targets for 69 yards in the Broncos' Week 15 win over the Colts.

With Brock Osweiler — long story — spreading the ball around and C.J. Anderson churning out yards on the ground, Thomas was one of three Broncos pass catchers to post more than 60 but fewer than 70 yards. Thomas has cleared 75 yards just once in his past nine games. With Osweiler likely to be under center for Week 16 against the Redskins, Thomas will be an uninspiring WR2.

Demaryius Thomas absorbed eight-of-12 targets for 93 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 14 win over the Jets.

It was a much-needed bounce-back performance for Thomas, who had been held to just seven catches for 45 yards in his previous two games. Thomas scored Denver’s first touchdown of the day in bizarre fashion, pulling in a 20-yard lob from Trevor Siemian on a play that Morris Claiborne appeared to lose in the sun. He kept the engine running with a 25-yard grab late in the third quarter for his longest catch of the afternoon. The 93 yards were Thomas’ most since Week 6 against the Giants when he went for a season-high 133 yards on 10 catches. Thomas will be back at it Thursday night against the Colts.

Demaryius Thomas managed 27 yards on two catches in the Broncos' Week 13 loss to the Dolphins.

Thomas dominated targets with a team-high ten, but the Broncos' passing game was an utter no-show. Trevor Siemian struggled mightily en route to 200 yards on 40 attempts. Denver's quarterback play will continue to be Thomas' main obstacle entering a Week 14 date with the Jets. It has rendered Thomas a boom-bust WR2/3 option each week, regardless of opponent.
Sun, Dec 3, 2017 05:43:00 PM

Demaryius Thomas caught 5-of-8 targets for 18 yards in Week 12 against Oakland.

The Broncos' offense couldn't get anything going in Paxton Lynch's first start, with both Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders getting held under 20 yards. Thomas still led the team in targets and is the clear No. 1 option. With Lynch sidelined, the Broncos could go back to Trevor Siemian in Week 13.

Denver radio host Benjamin Allbright reports the Broncos shopped Demaryius Thomas at last month's trade deadline and may look to move him in the offseason.

Allbright isn't a typical Rotoworld source, but he has connections and has broken stories. Per Allbright, the "team feels [Thomas] lost strength when he switched to a vegan diet and hasn't been the same player." Thomas barely got to the 1,000 yards mark last season (1,083) and is on pace for just 1,012 yards this year after having 1,300-plus from 2012-2015 with Peyton Manning. Thomas doesn't deserve the sole blame here when given Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler as his quarterbacks. Thomas turns 30 next month and is signed through 2019.

Demaryius Thomas corralled five-of-nine targets for 64 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 11 loss to the Bengals.

Thomas was held without a catch in the first half. He made a terrific catch over Dre Kirkpatrick for a 17-yard touchdown while cutting the Bengals’ lead to three with just over five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. That touchdown was the 55th of his career, tying him with Shannon Sharpe for the second-most receiving touchdowns in team history. Thomas has followed up a 13-game touchdown drought by scoring in three straight games. He’ll look to make it four in a row next week against the Raiders.

Demaryius Thomas (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

The knee injury is new, but Thomas had been dealing with a hamstring issue. It's a surprise after Thomas played the entire game last week. There hasn't been any concern from beat reporters over his status.
Wed, Nov 15, 2017 05:58:00 PM

Demaryius Thomas snagged five-of-eight targets for 44 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 10 loss to the Patriots.

Stephon Gilmore did a good job of containing Thomas, though Demaryius was able to break free for a seven-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Before the touchdown, Thomas extended the drive by reeling in a 17-yard catch, his longest of the day, on a pass that Brock Osweiler lobbed into the air after getting hit. Thomas has followed up a 13-game touchdown drought by scoring in back-to-back weeks. He’ll try to make it three straight next week against Cincinnati.

Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) wasn't listed on the Broncos' final injury report for Week 10 against the Patriots.

Thomas took a maintenance day on Wednesday before returning to a limited practice on Thursday. No team has given up more passing yards per game than New England this year, though Thomas' fantasy prospects are hindered by erratic signal-caller Brock Osweiler. Consider him a mid-range WR2.
