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 catching up (Mon Jul 20, 10:21 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is signed to his five-year deal, but he missed all of the offseason workouts and organized team activities (OTAs), so it will take a bit of time before he is up to speed.

Our View: We can't imagine things will take that long for Thomas. He'll be there for the opening day of training camp, and we'd guess by two weeks in Thomas will be up to speed. Gary Kubiak has said the wide receivers have the most to learn because of the terminology.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas sets lofty goals (Sat Jul 18, 02:58 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas said he wants to set the single-season record for receiving yards this year. Thomas also said he'd like to lead the league in touchdowns.

Bengals | A.J. Green thanks Demaryius Thomas (Fri Jul 17, 09:36 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas said during a press conference Friday, July 17, that Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green contacted him shortly after Thomas signed his new deal to thank him.

Our View: In the near future, Green is going to get a contract similar to what Thomas (and Dez Bryant) received earlier this week. With Green looking at around $45 million guaranteed, it's worth a call to say "thanks" to Demaryius.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas has lofty goal (Fri Jul 17, 07:31 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas said he wants to break the single-season receiving record this season. Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson set the record in 2012 with 1,964 yards.

Our View: We're not going to say Thomas can't reach that mark, but it is certainly a lofty goal. Under Gary Kubiak, former Texans receiver Andre Johnson caught over 100 passes in five different seasons. We think Thomas could catch around 100 passes this year with double-digit touchdowns to boot.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas to play lighter (Fri Jul 17, 01:19 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas said he plans to play lighter this season, and he's feeling faster than in the past. He also said that his ankle is fully healed after it bothered him the last few games of last season.

Our View: Thomas is going to play about 5-10 pounds lighter than he did last year. It should help his quickness off the line of scrimmage, and we don't think it will impact his ability to win at the point of the catch. He's a WR1 for fantasy owners, and even in a well-balanced Gary Kubiak offense we could see Thomas snaring around 100 catches in 2015.
