Broncos insider Mike Klis believes the team will go pass-heavy in 2017. "It’s pretty much the same offense [OC Mike] McCoy passed down to Adam Gase in 2013 and 2014, when Peyton Manning handed off only to allow receivers like Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders to catch their breath," Klis wrote discussing the 2017 scheme. Those Denver offenses weren't quite as pass-happy as Klis believes. The 2013 Broncos ranked 2nd in pass attempts and 10th and pass rate. The 2014 version finished 9th in attempts and 16th in rate. If the Broncos approach that territory this year, though, it'd be a shift from last year, when they ranked 17th in attempts and 18th in rate. That'd be good news for WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, who have been nice values in early fantasy football drafts.

Jets HC Adam Gase labeled WR Demaryius Thomas "week to week" after he aggravated his hamstring injury in Monday night's loss to the Browns. Between the hammy and the Jets' mess at QB, there's no reason to roster DT right now.

Jets WR Demaryius Thomas is active for tonight's game against the Browns. Thomas was questionable with a hamstring injury after not practicing all week. That makes his active status a bit surprising. We wouldn't expect much fantasy impact but will certainly be watching his role. The Jets recently placed WR Quincy Enunwa on IR.

Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Browns. He didn't practice all week, though, so don't bank on him playing. With Quincy Enunwa out, that'll leave Josh Bellamy and Braxton Berrios as New York's 3rd and 4th WRs behind Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder.

The Patriots have traded WR Demaryius Thomas to the Jets in exchange for a 2021 6th-round pick, ESPN's Adam Schefter. New England didn't have much of a need for Thomas after adding Antonio Brown to Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon. We'll see how Thomas fits into a Jets WR corps topped by Robby Anderson, Jamison Crowder and Quincy Enunwa, but we're not expecting much fantasy value. Thomas is at least familiar with HC Adam Gase's offense after spending 2010-2014 with him in Denver.

Patriots WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Steelers. Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon, Phillip Dorsett and Jakobi Meyers figure to serve as New England’s top 4 WRs.
