|Demaryius Thomas was reading something about the relationship between inflammation and diet that opened his eyes to the notion of having his blood tested. While training in Arizona, Thomas was put in contact with doctors who would conduct the tests and evaluate the results. It clearly broke down everything his body was sensitive to, what inflamed his body and his hip. In 14 days, Thomas went from 228 to 212 pounds. Thomas is lean, strong and motivated. He continues to follow the strict diet, using an in-home personal chef and is having one of his best camps in years, according to multiple people around the Broncos. (NFL.com - James Palmer)|
FFToday's Take: Thomas has amassed at least 140 targets and played all 16 games in six straight seasons. His physical skills have appeared to erode in recent years, although if he has been in as much pain as this article suggests, that could have easily been the culprit. If Thomas is truly pain-free for the first time in a while and Case Keenum lives up to his billing, Thomas could be poised for a return to low-end WR1 status.
