Summary

Demaryius Thomas may be in the twilight of his pro career, but he's been re-energized by the addition of QB Case Keenum. Last year, Thomas had his streak of six consecutive 1,000-yard seasons snapped due to poor quarterback play. With the clown car of Brock Osweiler, Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch we saw Thomas snare 83 catches for 949 yards and five touchdowns. With a new quarterback and a 'player friendly' offense ran by OC Bill Musgrave, we should see Thomas get back to his 1,000-yard ways. In fact, there have been reports about the Broncos perhaps using Thomas in a similar fashion to the way the Cardinals have started using WR Larry Fitzgerald. More time inside at the slot could help highlight Thomas and his run-after-the-catch ability. Even if he continues to line up outside, Thomas is going to be overloaded with targets as he should become Keenum's favorite target. He's getting drafted like a low-end WR2 but there should be games where he posts WR1 numbers in 2018. (June 4)

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas sidelined by toe (Wed Jun 13, 03:13 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (toe) has not been allowed to participate in minicamp because of a sore toe. He wanted to practice Wednesday, June 13, but head coach Vance Joseph did not permit him to do so. Thomas will not practice Thursday, June 14, either.

Our View: All reports indicate this is not a big issue. The Broncos want to be cautious with Thomas and not rush him out there for a June minicamp. Thomas is a seasoned pro who almost had 1,000 yards receiving last year even though the Broncos had a clown car at quarterback with guys like Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch. With Case Keenum entrenched as the starter, we could see Thomas get back to his 1,000-yard ways (with perhaps 90 catches). He's a WR2 for fantasy owners in 2018.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas has minor foot issue (Tue Jun 12, 03:10 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (foot) tweaked his foot at minicamp Tuesday, June 12.

Our View: Thomas has been looking good on the practice field up to this point. Nagging injuries have always been something Thomas has dealt with and played through...mostly at a high level. The team will take it easy on him with the plan to have him ready full speed at the start of training camp.
