Demaryius Thomas continues to be solid fantasy starter with Peyton Manning's approval

Jamie Squire

Demaryius Thomas is still becoming a bigger part of the Broncos offense. We break down the fantasy implications.

Peyton Manning said the Broncos are trying to find ways to get Demaryius Thomas the ball. The Broncos star quarterback praised Thomas' play in Sunday's game against the Chiefs, noting several big catches he made along the way.

Thomas finished with four receptions for 82 yards and a touchdown in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Manning also noted his timing with Thomas could be better, so there is still room for improvement despite their impressive output this season. Thomas finished with a team-high eight targets on Sunday, tied with Eric Decker.

He's clearly locked in as a WR1 at this point in the season, but the fact that Manning wants to keep feeding him the ball pushes his value up even more.
