Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas caught seven passes for 75 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 win over the Washington Redskins. Thomas led all Broncos receivers in targets with 11 and scored on a 35-yard pass. Thomas has six touchdowns on the year and 685 receiving yards. He is third in number of targets with 70, only behind Eric Decker and Wes Welker who each have 71.
Fantasy impact: Thomas joins Wes Welker and Eric Decker as must-start options in the Broncos pass attack. The Broncos offensive juggernaut looked to be back on track Sunday with Peyton Manning throwing four touchdown passes. Thomas will continue to get plenty of opportunities to make plays. The Broncos enter their bye week in Week 9 and will return to face the San Diego Chargers in Week 10.
