2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
It's been painful to watch Demaryius Thomas suffer through some of the worst quarterback play in the league over the past few seasons and Thomas finally failed to reach 1,000 receiving yards this past season for the first time since 2011, his second season in the league. Thomas finished tied for 10th in the NFL in 2017 with 10 red zone receptions, but he got a bit unlucky as he only finished with five touchdowns on the season. The 30-year-old wideout may not possess the incredible 4.41 speed that made him one of the biggest freak athletes at the position when he came into the league, but Thomas still creates major mismatches, especially in the red zone, with his size and strength.

The bright side for Thomas is that, while his counting stats have been down in recent seasons, he's still seeing a ton of targets and the efficiency of those targets should go up with even semi-competent quarterback play. Thomas now will get to play with Case Keenum, who finished second in the NFL, behind only an all-time NFL record performance by Drew Brees, with a 67.6 completion percentage in 2017. Keenum doesn't specialize in down-field passing but he should be a significant step up from the dumpster fire of a situation that Thomas has been dealing with as of late.

The Broncos did invest an early-second round pick on wide receiver Courtland Sutton who figures to be the heir-apparent for Thomas, but that won't likely come to fruition until at least the 2019 season when Thomas' contract is up for renewal. For now, the veteran should be in line to see at least 125 targets this season which should give him a high enough floor to out-produce his current ADP, which has him in the 20s among wide receivers.

He doesn't have the sexy name anymore but players like Thomas are a great option as a WR2 or even a very low-end WR1 for teams that go running back-heavy early in their drafts, or who select a quarterback or tight end in the first few rounds. His days as a true WR1 for fantasy purposes are probably done, but don't sleep on Thomas in 2018 just because he hasn't been great over the past few seasons.

News From The Past 90 Days
Demaryius Thomas having a great camp
Changed diet in offseason
By: Doug Orth | Thu Aug 9, 11:55 pm

Denver Broncos
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.
