With a double dip of touchdowns, Thomas ties Eric Decker for the team lead.
While Demaryius Thomas has been the deep threat and yardage king in Denver, Eric Decker was able to hold his own and score eight touchdowns for the Broncos. That is not the case so far today as Thomas has seven catches for 91 yards and two touchdowns, both coming in the third quarter.
Decker has just 1 catch for 12 yards on a single target while Thomas has been targeted eight times.
With both touchdown catches coming inside the red zone, with scores of eight and ten yards, Thomas has been getting plenty of Peyton Manning's attention where it matters most and that's great news for Thomas's fantasy owners as the fantasy playoffs fast approach. Thomas is now over 1,100 yards on the season with eight touchdowns and there is still a quarter left to play in this game.
It's not great news for Decker owners and he's bordering on finding a permanent seat on the fantasy bench with only one game over 100 yards on the year.
