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)

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas wants Megatron deal (Tue Jul 7, 12:29 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is looking for a deal similar to Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson's deal that averages $16 million per season with $48 million guaranteed.

Our View: Thomas, and every other highly productive player, should push for contracts that reflect the highest-ever paid out at their position. The cap is about to go up over the next few years, so old pay scales shouldn't apply to new deals.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas was busy in 2014 (Wed Jul 1, 09:43 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas' 184 targets last year were the most in the NFL.

Our View: Thomas's targets could trend down a bit with the Broncos slowing down their offense under new head coach Gary Kubiak, but that should be offset by more red zone targets now that Julius Thomas is in Jacksonville. He's still worth a late first in PPR leagues.
