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 to come back slowly (Thu Jul 30, 04:48 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas will be eased back into the offense this offseason because of his late return to the team. The Broncos want to gauge where Thomas is physically before he's cleared for full contact practices.

Our View: Thomas has missed the entire offseason program as he waited for a new long-term deal from the Broncos. It's the smart move to ease him into action. Thomas should be able to catch 100 passes this year in the Gary Kubiak offense.
