Demaryius Thomas injury update: Broncos WR questionable vs. Colts, fantasy value still high [UPDATE]

Even an injured Demaryius Thomas is a very tantalizing fantasy play vs. a banged-up Colts defense.

Editor’s update: Adam Schefter had this to say about Thomas’ injury

The Denver Broncos are listing Demaryius Thomas as questionable vs. the Indianapolis Colts. Thomas is expected to play through his nagging hip injury, according to NFL.com reporter James Palmer.

Thomas originally suffered the injury in Week 1’s Thursday night game vs. the Carolina Panthers. He left the game briefly before returning, then later admitted it affected his play. That limited Thomas in practice this week, but he did enough on Friday to think he will play Sunday.

The good news for Thomas and the Broncos offense is that the Colts will be without several key defensive players this week, including star cornerback Vontae Davis.

Fantasy Impact: Thomas' injury would normally make him a shaky fantasy play vs. the Colts. However, Davis and other key Colts being out makes starting Thomas an easy call in Week 2.

In 2015, the Colts allowed the eighth most fantasy points to receivers. Start Thomas in every league you own him in.
