Demaryius Thomas had eight receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown during the Denver Broncos' loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night football in Week 2. Thomas led the Broncos with 11 targets on the night. Eric Decker caught four passes for 53 yards off eight targets in the loss.
Fantasy Impact: Thomas has now caught a touchdown pass in two straight games. He is proving to be a very versatile target for Peyton Manning, showing prowess as a deep threat, a red-zone target and as a player that can turn and run for yards after contact. There is a lot to like about Thomas' game, not to mention the fact that he has been Manning's favorite receiver through two weeks. Decker is still a nice option for PPR leagues but, at the moment, Thomas looks like the player to own in the Broncos' receiving corps.
