Demaryius Thomas had two receptions for 37 yards and a touchdown during the Denver Broncos' comeback win over the San Diego Chargers on Monday Night Football in Week 6. Thomas was targeted twice on the night. Brandon Stokley outperformed Thomas, catching four passes for 48 yards and touchdown on four targets.
Thomas had more than 100 yards receiving in the Broncos' previous two outings, but was held without a score. Thomas' third-quarter touchdown Monday was his first since Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Fantasy Impact: Thomas' day was salvaged with a touchdown. Otherwise, the night would have been a dud for owners. Fortunately, there is nothing to suggest that the "meh" performance is part of any kind of trend. Peyton Manning is on an absolute tear with 300-plus yards passing in his last four outings and three touchdown passes in each of his last three games.
You will have to sit Thomas next week due to the Broncos' bye week, but a Week 8 matchup against the New Orleans Saints is very enticing. Manning may have to throw a lot to keep pace with Brees, and the Saints' defense has been questionable all season.
