The Broncos and Texans are close to finalizing a deal that will send WR Demaryius Thomas to Houston in exchange for a mid-round pick, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The Texans need an outside WR to pair with DeAndre Hopkins after losing Will Fuller to a torn ACL. Thomas' best days are clearly behind him, but he's a veteran WR who will at least command some defensive attention. From a fantasy standpoint, he's no better than a WR3 the rest of the way. We wouldn't be surprised if rookie WR Keke Coutee out-targets Thomas going forward. The big winner here is WR Courtland Sutton, who becomes the clear #2 WR in Denver. He's been impressive with limited volume this year, averaging a big 19.1 yards per catch. Consider him a weekly WR3 with upside.

Update: The Texans are sending a 4th-round pick to Denver, and the teams will also swap 7th rounders.
