Week 4: vs Minnesota Vikings

All WR vs MIN

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Peyton Manning tore up Detroit last weekend, throwing 31/42 for 324 yards passing with two TDs and one interception thrown during the 24-12 win. He favored DeMaryius Thomas (13 targets for 9/92/1 receiving), Owen Daniels (nine for 5/28/1) and Emmanuel Sanders (nine for 6/87/0) during the Week Three game - those guys are his main targets entering Week Four. It's all good for Denver in this phase of the game. The Vikings' pass D is ranked 16th in the NFL averaging 243.0 net yards passing allowed per game, with four passing scores allowed balanced by two interceptions and six sacks generated to date (tied for 17th- and 12th-ranked in the NFL, respectively). This is a mediocre pass D entering Week Four, as you can see. Last week, San Diego posted 26/40 for 309 net yards passing yielding two TDs and one interception thrown at Minnesota. At home in Mile High Stadium, we think Manning has a slight edge over the visiting Vikings.

Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 3 vs DET (13 / 9 / 92 / 1 rec)

Demaryius Thomas had one of his all-too-common up-and-down games for the Broncos against Detroit, mixing sublime plays and frustrating plays in equal measure. On the good side of the ledger, Thomas deployed his huge size to good effect on several occasions to win contested catches, including on a deep touchdown on 4th-and-1 to end the first half that included his longest run after contact of the season. On the other hand, Thomas had a pair of ugly drops and a terrible fumble where he reached the ball out trying to convert on 3rd-and-5, only to lose hold of the football and give it away.

2015 Week 2 vs KC (14 / 8 / 116 / 0 rec)

If football games were 57 minutes long, Demaryius Thomas rate as little more than a footnote in Denver's loss to Kansas City. To that point, Thomas had five catches for 62 yards with just two first downs. Fortunately, games go for a full 60 minutes; in the final three minutes, with Denver down seven and needed a touchdown to tie, Thomas caught three balls for 54 more yards and three first downs, including perhaps the catch of the game where he elevated over traffic to snatch a laser from Manning. In addition, on a do-or-die 3rd-and-8, Thomas used his bulk to box out a smaller defender and convert for a new set of downs. While the lack of yards after the catch continue to be troubling from a receiver who for the past two years has done the majority of his damage with the ball in his hands, the final drive offered an enticing glimpse of the physical gifts that leave Thomas routinely mentioned among the best receivers in the NFL.

2015 Week 1 vs BAL (11 / 7 / 60 / 0 rec)

With Manning looking uncomfortable against Baltimore's defense, Demaryius Thomas was used as he often is, with Denver feeding him a steady diet of short manufactured touches and hoping he could make something happen with them. Only one of Thomas' eleven targets was more than 10 yards beyond the line of scrimmage. While the double-digit targets were a good sign after a rusty preseason, Thomas' long gain was just 11 yards as he was unable to break a long one.
