Demaryius Thomas held scoreless in a fantasy shootout

The Broncos wide receiver was held out of the end zone in a Week 5 win over the Cowboys. We break down the fantasy implications.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas caught five passes for 57 yards and surprisingly did not find the end zone in a 51-48 win over the Dallas Cowboys. Thomas was targeted six times in the game.

Fantasy impact: Thomas has four touchdowns on the season for his fantasy owners, but he as now been held out of the end zone in three of the Broncos' five games. He has a great rapport with quarterback Peyton Manning, but with Wes Welker joining the team from New England, Manning has another weapon at his disposal.

The reality is that the Broncos are able to put up points at will and it's just not possible for every single receiver in the lineup to score every single week. That said, knowing that the Broncos were involved in a game that saw them score 51 points and having Thomas not get into the end zone has to be a bit disappointing for his fantasy owners.

Given that the Broncos can put up a minimum of 30 points in a game and make it look automatic these days, the team's Week 6 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars should be an absolute blowout. Thomas' owners need to have him in the lineup without question, as he seems to score his touchdowns in bunches this year.
