2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Not much was expected of Thomas last season due to the ruptured Achilles suffered in the off-season. He missed the first six weeks but came back with a vengeance, catching 32 passes for 551 yards and four touchdowns over the Broncos final 11 games despite having two games where he received one total target. Even more impressive was his performance in the post-season where he caught four passes for 204 yards and the game winning touchdown against the Steelers and then followed that up with a six-reception, 93-yard game in a losing cause against the Patriots. Just imagine what he could have done without scattered arm Tim Tebow chucking him the ball. Oh wait, no imagining required. Peyton Manning is in town for the 2012 season. Manning has said that Thomas is the most physically gifted wide receiver that he has ever played with but letís not confuse physically gifted with production. Since Thomas hasnít come anywhere close to reaching the heights of Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne, the question is Ė will he? Thomas possesses freakish natural ability with outstanding speed and strength to go along with a willingness to be a physical player. While Thomas was a top five fantasy wide receiver from Week 10 on last year, those lofty heights arenít likely to be reached in 2012. Consider him an upper tier WR3 with a huge upside in redraft formats and an outstanding dynasty league prospect.

News From The Past 90 Days
Demaryius Thomas distracted last season     -- Mon Jun 20 3:40 pm --

Missed 2015 offseason due to contract standoff
Demaryius Thomas said earlier this offseason that 2015 was ďthe worst of my past four years,Ē citing a high number of drops as a reason why his performance fell short of where he wanted it to be. During an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio, Thomas talked some more about feeling like he fell short last season. Thomas didnít work with the Broncos during the offseason because he was trying to work out a long-term deal after getting the franchise tag and said criticism after he signed his new deal got to him while he was also adjusting to the news that his mother would be released from prison, all of which added up to too much noise in his head. (Pro Football Talk)

FF Today's Take: Despite his second straight 100-catch and fourth consecutive 1,000-yard receiving season, Thomas was considered a disappointment by most as his touchdowns dropped from 11 to six and he finished third in the league in drops. Thomas should still be considered among the best receivers in the league, but perhaps more of a low-end WR1 than an elite WR1 with so much uncertainty at quarterback and in a more balanced offense than he has been in over the previous four seasons.
