Football fans everywhere were watching to see who would catch Peyton Manning's record-breaking pass and it was Demaryius Thomas whose name will be forever etched in NFL history. And there was a game as well, with Thomas having 8 receptions on 9 targets for 171 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Thomas is part of the high-octane Manning offense and is an ongoing WR1, to be started every week in all formats.

Thomas had 10 receptions on 12 targets for the day. He also has 18 receptions and 350 yards for the last 2 games.

Fantasy Impact: Any thoughts of Thomas dropping off the radar have been extinguished as he once again appears set for another dominant season. Owners can breathe easy now and buyers will have to ante up big time if they want the star on their team.

Fantasy Impact: Thomas looks to be back to his 2013 form, as he had a career day against a tough Cardinals defense. With his confidence back, he should continue to perform at a high level.

Targeted 16 times. Thomas caught 8 for a record-setting 226 yards. This comes on the heels of games that left Thomas owners wondering about his year.

Fantasy Impact: Thomas is back, and he came roaring back. It's the game he needed to breakout of the mini-slump he was in. He routinely beat Antonio Cromartie down the sidelines and even had a 77 yard TD called back. Owners can now start him with confidence and he'll keep rolling next week in a juicy tilt against the Jets.

Demaryius Thomas and the Broncos still need to work out a deal for a contract, but neither that, nor an injury that both he and the team deny exists are the reason for his diminished production. (Source: Yahoo Sports)

Fantasy Impact: Thomas is one of the most talented WRs in the NFL. If he is not distracted by his contract situation or hobbled by injury, then it is only a matter of time before he starts having big games. Patience!

Thomas had 4 receptions for 31 yards on the day and appears off his usual game.

Fantasy Impact: He had 2 more drops today, and yes, at times he was defended by Richard Sherman, but also struggled against the coverage of Byron Maxwell. Owners can only hope he comes out of next week's bye ready to give the game full effort. He has good matchups coming against the Cardinals, Jets, and 49ers.

Demaryius Thomas was targeted 7 times and had 5 receptions for 69 yards and a TD in the game against the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: Great news for Owners as Thomas had a good day as opposed to last weeks outing. Thomas had an exciting TD catch for 12 yards and worked through a foot issue that cropped up in pregame warmups. He faces Seattle next week.

By Steve Painter, Broncos Correspondent, Mon, Sep 8th 12:15pm EDT

Thomas was held in check by good coverage from Greg Toler. He had at least two drops, but did execute a 26 yard screen play in the fourth quarter. He finished the night with 4 receptions for 48 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Thomas is the clear #1 receiver in Denver and is a prime bounce back candidate against the Chiefs next week. Clearly an elite player, owners should not have any doubts about starting him every week.

Fantasy Impact: DT had a great camp and is just a steady, elite talent in the Broncos offense. He enjoys having the most prolific passer in the game calling his number each and every week. He is a must start in all formats.

By Steve Painter, Broncos Correspondent, Mon, Aug 11th 5:17pm EDT

Thomas caught 5 passes for 52 yards in last Thursday's preseason tilt against Seattle and has shined in camp so far.

Fantasy Impact: Barring injury, Thomas could achieve number 1 status amongst all WR's for fantasy scoring this year. With Decker gone he joins Wes Welker and Emmanuel Sanders in the starting group of Peyton Manning's powerful offense. He is certainly worth consideration as a first rounder in fantasy drafts.

Fantasy Impact: Don't expect Thomas' time away from camp to impact his season. He is looking for a third consecutive 90+ catch, 1400+ yard, 10+ TD season in what is also a contract year for him. He will remain the Broncos' top weapon and missing a few practices does nothing to change that.

The Denver Broncos have made a contract offers to star wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and will continue negotiating after training camp opens July 24, Broncos general manager John Elway said Wednesday. Demaryius Thomas, coming off back-to-back 1,400-yard seasons, is on the verge of superstardom and fast becoming one of the league's elite receivers. He caught 14 touchdowns last year, plus three more in the postseason. (Source: USA Today)

Fantasy Impact: Playing into the final year of his rookie contract, it doesn't look like it'll have any affect on the young star wide receiver. Bottom line, Thomas will still have Peyton Manning throwing to him and even with Eric Decker gone, there are still targets in Welker and Julius Thomas to keep defenses from doubling him up.

A party doesn't start until something gets broken. A playoff series doesn't start until a road team gets a win. And a fantasy football season doesn't start until the bye weeks arrive. I've never understood grousing about bye weeks. I like them. I think they make fantasy football more interesting and they reward the better owners. (Heck, I wish the league would add a second bye week for everyone, t...
