Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas caught eight passes for 123 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 win over the Houston Texans. Thomas was the second most targeted receiver behind Eric Decker with fourteen looks. He is still the most targeted Broncos receiver and will continue to get looks from quarterback Peyton Manning, who shows no signs of slowing down. On the year, Thomas has caught 86 passes for 1317 yards and twelve touchdowns. He is averaging 85.3 receiving yards per game.

Fantasy impact: Thomas will remain a WR1 and a must start in all fantasy leagues. The Texans are giving up the fourth least fantasy points to wide receivers and Manning and Thomas put up a clinic against them. With Wes Welker likely out until the playoffs, he will get plenty of looks. The Broncos will face the Oakland Raiders in Week 17. The Raiders are giving up the ninth most fantasy points to wide receivers.
