Summary

Mike McCoy can make a world of difference for Demaryius Thomas. After McCoy was hired, Thomas went on record to exclaim "I get my play back!" That play is the wide receiver screen that Thomas loves -- and fantasy owners love what he can do when he takes a short pass and turns it into a long gain. Thomas is likely to be the centerpiece of the Broncos offense in 2017. He was called out by new head coach Vance Joseph almost immediately after Joseph got the job. Joseph believes in Thomas and he believes that Thomas needs to play big on every play and be the superstar that he is. It's an important note for fantasy owners worried about the numbers slipping for Thomas last year. Yes, the quarterback situation is an unknown but Thomas seems to have a growing chemistry with Paxton Lynch -- and already an established chemistry with Trevor Siemian. Thomas is healthy after suffering a hip injury (on the first play of the first game) that plagued him all of 2016. A healthy Thomas and a happy Thomas should lead to plenty of happy fantasy owners that draft him at his current ADP in the third round. (July 10)

Latest News

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas' hip pain is gone (Mon Jul 10, 10:52 AM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hip) said the pain in his hip that bothered him last season is gone.

Our View: Thomas was hurt on the first play of the first game in 2016, but he played through the pain and still ended the season as a top-20 fantasy WR. This year he gets his play back (WR screen) with OC Mike McCoy running the show. Yes, the quarterback position is up in the air but Thomas is going to be the centerpiece of what the Broncos do offensively. Fantasy owners are expecting a bounce-back season as he's getting drafted at WR14 (3.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas still going strong (Sun Jul 9, 09:30 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is one of three players in NFL history with five or more consecutive seasons with at least 90 receptions and at least 1,000 yards, and he said he thinks he still has a couple of good years left.

Our View: Thomas is feeling better after a hip injury limited him for a lot of last year. He'll benefit from more screen passes under new (old) offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and should be a WR1 in PPR leagues this year.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas hopes for quick QB decision (Fri Jul 7, 08:56 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas said he hopes the Broncos decide on a starting quarterback before their second preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers. QB Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch will be competing for the job when training camp begins.

Our View: Thomas is poised to improve his numbers regardless of who plays quarterback, but an early decision will make establishing chemistry in Mike McCoy's offense much easier. Expect more wide receiver screens and high percentage plays targeting Thomas, who is a lot healthier after playing through a debilitating hip injury.
