Summary

Denver's passing game is going to look different this year as they utilize more two tight end formations and run the ball more than they did under John Fox. This means the numbers from the wide receivers in Denver could dip slightly from what we saw last season. Demaryius Thomas is the main man in Denver, and his chemistry with Peyton Manning is well documented. He is big, fast and strong at the point of the catch making Thomas a favorite target for Manning in any situations. Fantasy owners curious about what Thomas's production could look like under new head coach Gary Kubiak should look no further than former Houston Texans receiver Andre Johnson. The veteran receiver worked well under Kubiak during their time together in Houston. While Thomas only has one season (2015) with more than 100 catches, Johnson had four such seasons under Kubiak in Houston. The offense is going to be more balanced in Denver this year, but Thomas can still put up fantasy numbers that put him in the top five of all wide receivers. Draft him as you normally would and start him every week. (May 17)

Latest News

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas has solid week (Thu Aug 20, 02:02 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas had a very productive week of practice and appears to be in football shape, according to QB Peyton Manning.

Our View: Thomas missed the offseason program as he waited for a new contract. The Broncos have eased him in during training camp, and now Thomas is looking as good as ever. Fantasy owners should know that even in a Gary Kubiak (conservative) offense, Thomas should be a top-5 fantasy wide receiver.
