Andrew Mason of The Sporting News reports that Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is still trying to develop a rapport with QB Peyton Manning. According to Mason, their timing in practice has been "balky" and there are "lingering concern over the precision of his cuts."
Fantasy Impact: Thomas freely admitted in the offseason that his route running needed improvement after the chaotic Tebow era, so it's a bit disconcerting that he's not making much progress a week before the regular season. A healthy Manning can make a fantasy superstar out of anyone, and Thomas is the most physically-gifted WR he's ever had, but for now Eric Decker is the safer fantasy bet in Denver.
