Demaryius Thomas has just two catches for 25-yards against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

On Sunday against the 49ers, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas finished with only two catches for 25 yards. Thomas did not see as much playing time as some of the other Broncos receivers, but looked good in limited action.

Analysis: Demaryius Thomas is a starting receiver for the Denver Broncos, who just signed Peyton Manning this offseason. This increases Thomas' fantasy value tenfold, but since the regular season has not yet begun, it's up in the air which Denver receiver will be most productive. Thomas has the physical attributes to be the leading receiver for the Broncos, but it was Eric Decker who really shined against the 49ers.

However, if Manning's Sunday performance is any indication of how he'll play this season, both Thomas and Decker could be 1,000-yard receivers in 2012. Thomas is going higher than Decker is most fantasy leagues because physically, he brings more upside. Be sure to target Thomas in the middle rounds.
