Demaryius Thomas 2017 Outlook


Recommended Posts

I have no idea what to do with this guy. After week 13 I was completely done with him and planned on putting him on the bench for Crowder...now after this week I can't decide if he's trying to lure me into a trap in week 15 against the Colts or if there might actually be some value here? 12 targets is encouraging, right???

I'm starting him this week.  It's not like I have much of a choice since my other option is Sterling Shepard but the Colts are an attackable matchup and the volume for Thomas has been there.  I play the best team in our league this week so I will take literally any points he can offer.

Those are PPR numbers but he should have a good week.

I'm also assuming that Vontae Davis (when he was good) Covered DT in most or all of those games.

DT's game last week was a fluke. Not in terms of targets but what he did with them. He had 10 targets vs an equally pathetic Dolphins pass D and had 27 yards. He had 18 yards in 8 targets the week before against the vaunted Raider D.

 

Siemian is still the QB. That is why DT has been a WR3 this yr - don't give a damn what the matchup is..

DT is a somewhat solid Wr2 play- just based on expected 6-8 targets,  but I don’t see a lot of passing in general here.    Lower scoring, lots of running.   This is being dubbed “The Draft Status Bowl” in Denver.   Losing moves us ahead of Indy in the draft.    So yeah-  fun.  Hopefully 88 can get his.   But it could def be Manny who has the big game.  He’s just as talented and they want him more involved after last weeks letdown.
