Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 2 vs KC (7 / 5 / 62 / 1 rec)

After a drop-filled week 1 performance, Demaryius Thomas played focused and angry against the Kansas City Chiefs, repeatedly catching short passes and weaving through the defense to turn them into big gains. Thomas' combination of size and speed was evident every time he touched the ball, and Kansas City was only able to answer it on one play, a short catch on 3rd-and-4 where the Chiefs brought Thomas down short of the first. Demaryius' biggest play of the night didn't even show up in the stat sheet; Thomas took a short pass, cut between two defenders, then accelerated away from the secondary for a 55-yard gain that could have easily been an 80-yard touchdown had Thomas not stepped out of bounds near the end. Unfortunately, the play was called back due to an ineligible man downfield penalty, as offensive tackle Chris Clark was three yards beyond the line of scrimmage at the time of the throw. In addition to his success after the catch, Demaryius Thomas caught a beautiful touchdown on a fade pass; tightly covered, Thomas had to bring the ball in with one hand while fending off the defender with his other.

2014 Week 3 vs SEA (9 / 4 / 31 / 0 rec)

While Demaryius Thomas was one of the few bright spots for Denver against Seattle in the Super Bowl, he played very poorly in the rematch. Thomas had one ugly drop and another pass that was initially ruled a catch and fumble, but which on replay was reversed, giving him a second drop; the replay was a fortunate break, as it appeared that Demaryius caught the football, got two feet down, and lost it with minimal contact, but the referees ruled that he had never made a "football move" with possession. Thomas missed two snaps with what was reported as a sore foot, and appeared limited by it at times. He was wide open on a deep pass, but was unable to accelerate up to it. He had another potential big gain that fell incomplete when he was unable to leap as high as he typically would. In all, Demaryius Thomas had almost no impact at all until the game's final drive, when he managed to convert a big 3rd-and-10 with a catch on the sideline while falling out of bounds. Thomas reprised his heroics near the boundary line with a game-tying two-point conversion; Thomas had Sherman in excellent coverage, but managed to secure the ball and get his toes down at the back of the end zone in a highlight-reel grab. Despite the late plays, on the whole, Demaryius had an awful afternoon.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas bothered by drops (Thu Sep 25, 01:20 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas has one touchdown catch this year and four dropped passes. Thomas had five dropped passes all of last season. 'I just haven't been consistent, and it bothers me,' Thomas said. 'I think about it, I keep practicing hard, doing the things I need to do. I want to make it right.' Thomas has been bothered by a left foot injury at times, but he hasn't missed any practice time and has played 93 percent of the offensive snaps through three games.

Our View: Thomas has underperformed his draft slot for sure and right now seems to be no better than a WR2, as opposed to the WR1 he was supposed to be. We hope a week off will help the offense get synced up and get Thomas back on track. You might be able to buy low on him with a frustrated owner and that's a recommended move.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas has been inconsistent (Mon Sep 22, 01:02 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas finished with four catches for just 31 yards in the team's Week 3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, but QB Peyton Manning targeted him nine times in the game. Thomas dropped a pass and had a big gain taken back by a penalty. He has caught nine passes for 110 yards and a touchdown through three games this year, and he has been very inconsistent so far. 'I really can't tell. It was a fast game,' said Thomas when asked if the Seahawks' coverage led to his decreased numbers. 'I had an opportunity to make plays and didn't. I feel like I had my chances. I have to make my plays. Two plays that I had my hands on the ball, they broke up. But I feel like I have to come down with those.' He continues to say that contract talks haven't been a distraction. Thomas also dealt with foot and ankle issues in Week 3, but he refused to use it as an excuse.

Our View: There's no question that "Bey Bey" is not quite himself. Thomas has been getting peppered with targets, but he's dropping too many and his timing with Peyton Manning just seems off. The Broncos have a bye this week, so perhaps some of these issues can be worked on. We still like Thomas as a WR2 with WR1 upside, but he's no longer the "set it and forget it" WR1 he was entering the season.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas leaves briefly (Sun Sep 21, 05:13 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (foot) left the Week 3 game in the second quarter against the Seattle Seahawks due to a foot injury. He has reportedly been dealing with the injury for a while. He limped off, was evaluated by the training staff, and was able to return.

Our View: Thomas doesn't have his normal edge today. Emmanuel Sanders is shouldering most of the load for the Broncos receivers in this one.

Broncos | Wes Welker to return to slot (Wed Sep 17, 04:31 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker will return to the slot receiver position in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks, moving WR Emmanuel Sanders back outside opposite WR Demaryius Thomas. WR Andre Caldwell will return to the No. 4 receiver role.
