Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 14 vs MIA (4 / 2 / 28 / 1 rec)
Demaryius Thomas' biggest moment was a flash of the old Thomas as he fought hard for the ball to get a touchdown. Quarterback Sam Darnold threw just a little too far inside, allowing the Dolphins' defender a chance to make a play. He reached across Thomas' body to wrench at the ball but Thomas kept a tight grip on it though as they crossed the goal line, after which the ball came loose. Thomas had made three steps, which is considered a football move, and the ball broke the plane while he still had possession. In the end that was enough for a touchdown.
2019 Week 13 vs CIN (5 / 3 / 23 / 0 rec)
Thomas was not terribly effective against the Bengals, and mostly caught the ball on short, quick routes.
2019 Week 12 vs OAK (3 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)
It was a relatively quiet day for Thomas, with the least amount of targets since Week 9 against Miami. While he did seem to have some issues getting open on occasion, this was likely more an issue of Robby Anderson and LeVeon Bell having good days.
2019 Week 11 vs WAS (5 / 4 / 44 / 0 rec)
Thomas is not the receiver he once was, but he is slowly gaining more of Sam Darnold and the offense's trust, and if his impact is a bit limited due to his waning skillset, he still makes some nice plays, such as on his catch and run for 13 yards in the first quarter. Still, his use is scattershot, and he's not a top option in this offense.
2019 Week 10 vs NYG (9 / 6 / 84 / 0 rec)
Thomas led the team in targets, catches and yards, as he not only did a good job catching passes thrown his way, but finding extra yards on many of his receptions. On one such play early in the first quarter, Thomas caught a short pass from quarterback Sam Darnold and quickly had Giants safety Antoine Bethea on him to make the tackle. But Thomas made a sharp jump cut that had the safety grasping air, and then continued upfield for a gain of 16-yards. He hit for even bigger yards in the fourth quarter. Darnold had to scramble and found Thomas open on a drag route about 15 yards downfield, heading towards the sideline. Darnold hit him in stride and Thomas immediately turned upfield while hugging the sideline. Thomas gained 47-yards before eventually being taken down.
2019 Week 9 vs MIA (3 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
Thomas had a really nice catch to convert on a fourth down but was otherwise absent from the gameplan.
2019 Week 8 vs JAX (5 / 5 / 63 / 0 rec)
Thomas caught all of his targets but didn't make much of an impact overall. Whether because he gets open quickly or because it's being schemed to happen, Thomas is getting as many looks as anyone on this offense, but he's not able to break free enough to pile up any real yardage.
2019 Week 7 vs NE (9 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec)
Thomas saw a surprising nine targets to lead receivers, and drew several flags to move the chains. That said, he had a bad drop early and hasn't really shown the ability to consistently break free of coverage before or after the catch.
2019 Week 6 vs DAL (5 / 4 / 62 / 0 rec)
As he came into the game with some hamstring and knee issues, Thomas' output should be no surprise, though he did catch all but one of his targets and seemed to do a good job of getting open on a consistent basis.
2019 Week 5 vs PHI (9 / 4 / 47 / 0 rec)
Thomas led the team in yards, though not catches, as he lined up outside and Jamison Crowder moved back to the slot. He had a bad drop that should have been a touchdown and was the target on one of Falk's interceptions. He looks like he isn't hampered by the hamstring which had sidelined him since early in the Week 2 game against Cleveland.
2019 Week 2 vs CLE (2 / 1 / -1 / 0 rec)
Despite not practicing with the team all week, Thomas was active, but ended up leaving early as he re-aggravated his hamstring. His night was notable for being the only wide receiver with a catch at halftime.
