Demaryius Thomas Injury Update: Probable Status No Problem For Fantasy Owners

Demaryius Thomas is probable for Week 2 against the Falcons. We break down the fantasy implications.

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (shoulder) is probable for Monday's game against the Atlanta Falcons. Thomas was shaken up on a hard tackle by S Troy Polamalu in Week 1, but finished the game and had huge numbers (five catches, 110 yards, one TD). He got a full week of practice in and there's little doubt he'll be ready to go on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: I said a couple weeks back that a healthy Peyton Manning can make a fantasy star out of anyone, and lo and behold - Manning was healthy, and Thomas had a star performance. He won't put up those kind of numbers every week, but just as it was in Indy, Peyton's WRs are must-starts in fantasy.
