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 with wrist injury (Sun Aug 19, 10:07 AM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (wrist) did not play in the team's preseason game against the Chicago Bears Saturday, Aug. 18, because of a sore wrist suffered in practice, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

Our View: There's no reason to think this is serious or will affect Thomas's play or availability for Week 1, but it would be comforting to see him play next week and look like his usual self. Second-round pick Courtland Sutton has gotten rave reviews this summer and if he starts at any point for Thomas, he could be an instant impact player.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas changed his diet (Thu Aug 9, 09:40 AM) - Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hip) changed his diet in the offseason after reading about the relationship between inflammation and diet. He found out what his body was sensitive to, what inflamed his body and his hip and what supplements that were lacking or needed. He dropped from 228 pounds to 212 pounds and put the weight back on with a new workout program.

Our View: Thomas, along with Emmanuel Sanders, will continue to dominate the targets, though rookie Courtland Sutton has had a great camp to date. Thomas seems to be in sync with new Broncos quarterback Case Keenum already, and there is a feeling he could end up getting back over the 1,000 yard mark this season. He's currently going off the board as the 18th receiver, 45th player overall and we are cautiously optimistic about his upside.
