Summary

At wide receiver in the NFL, there's Calvin Johnson and there's everybody else. However, near the top of the "everybody else" category resides Demaryius Thomas. He's worked diligently to become one of the best in the game, and his hard work has payed off with big-time production. Last year Thomas caught a career-best 14 touchdowns. This helped him secure the 2nd-best fantasy wide receiver title in 2013. Thomas has had similar numbers in both receptions (94 in 2012, 92 in 2013) and receiving yards (1,442 in 2012, 1,430 in 2013) over the last two years. This type of consistency is invaluable for fantasy owners. On a weekly basis Thomas can be relied on as well. In 2013 there were only four weeks where Thomas didn't score 9.4 or more fantasy points. Getting a starter with tremendous upside to get you around double-digit points each week is incredible. He's got one of the best size/speed combinations in the league. Thomas is too big for most cornerbacks to handle, and this makes him a real threat in the red zone. He's also fast and agile. Thomas can take the top off the defense with his speed, but he also has the moves to be dangerous on wide receiver screen passes after the catch. Thomas is the favorite receiver for Peyton Manning in the league's most dangerous offense. Let that soak in when you're considering other top receivers like Dez Bryant, Julio Jones or A.J. Green in the early portions of your fantasy draft. Thomas is consistent and should finish this year as a top-5 fantasy wide receiver. (May 24)

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas to miss four days (Thu Jul 24, 10:09 AM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas will miss the first four days of training camp to attend the funeral services of his grandmother that helped raise him as a child. Our condolences to family and friends.

Broncos | Wide open behind Top 3 receivers (Wed Jul 16, 11:31 PM) - Denver Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and Emmanuel Sanders will be the top three wide receivers, with WRs Andre Caldwell and Cody Latimer also in the plans. Undrafted WR Isaiah Burse has potential but will have to show some significant pop in the preseason games to earn a potential job as return man and possible sixth receiver.

Our View: Latimer is the player to watch here. He's likely to be a starter in 2015 on the outside with Sanders moving into the slot next year. For this season, don't go overboard on Latimer but know the team may mix him in when they get near the red zone because of his size and wingspan. Latimer is a talented player who could have been a first-round pick.
