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.
Trevor Siemian expected to start-- Sun Dec 11 7:00 am --
All signs point to Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian starting Sunday against the Titans.
Siemian was limited in practice last week with a left foot sprain and initially listed as questionable for the game. Coach Gary Kubiak said that he was encouraged by Siemian's progress and that his game availability would likely be determined after Friday's workout.(Denver Post)
FF Today's Take:With Siemian starting both Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders are in play as WR2s against the Titans today. The Broncos and Titans play early we'll know Siemian's status for sure when inactives come out 90 minutes before kickoff.
