Demaryius Thomas puts up 112 and a score in first half; fantasy value high

The Broncos wide receiver has had a huge first half. We break down the fantasy implications.

CHirs Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

A week after his worst fantasy game of the season, Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas bounced back with a huge first half Sunday against the Houston Texans. He's been the team's main offensive weapon en route to a 16-6 halftime lead for the Broncos.

Thomas caught seven balls for 112 yards and a touchdown in the first half Sunday, scoring on a 36-yard connection with quarterback Peyton Manning. It puts him over 1,300 receiving yards of the season, and the touchdown was his 12th.

Fantasy impact: Anyone who thought Thomas was on the downhill after being held to 45 yards a week ago wasn't thinking right, obviously, as he's already accumulated 17 fantasy points Sunday. He's scored at least 10 fantasy points in eight of nine games now, and entered Sunday as the No. 3 wide receiver in fantasy on the season, tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers' Antonio Brown.
