Demaryius Thomas is still a "work in progress" working with Peyton Manning. We break down the fantasy implications.

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.
