Fantasy Team Advice
Two straight seasons of 1,400+ yards and 10+ touchdowns. Peyton Manning is tossing him the rock, and Thomas is just now entering his prime. 13 receptions for 118 yards and a TD in the Super Bowl despite the Broncos getting steamrolled. He's fantasy gold.
 
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
2nd year in a row with 90+ receptions, 1,400+ receiving yards, and 10+ receiving TDs. Thomas will benefit from Eric Decker no longer with Denver, but the signing of WR Emmanuel Sanders will keep Thomas in check. I expect another Manning to Thomas TD combination year for fantasy owners.
 
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
DT is the clear cut top receiver for Peyton now and will continue with his awesome numbers as long as Peyton and he stay healthy. That offense won't let him or you down.
Decker will miss Peyton Manning, but he's no slouch on his own. He'll be the #1 receiver for the Jets and a great red zone target with his size and ability. Don't sleep on Decker.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
PPR beast and Peyton Manning helps Demaryius continue to be an easy WR selection.
Let's hope Michael Vick looks Decker's way often. There are a number of question marks around Decker, but he is a solid choice.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Elite talent playing with elite QB. Decker's exit could further boost numbers.
QB downgrade won't crush his value; a bargain at his current ADP.
  
Tom Schriner

Thomas had 92 catches for 1,430 yards and 14 touchdowns, which led all receivers. He closed the year with double digits in Fantasy points in 9 of the final 10 games, and he could see a bump in targets with Eric Decker now gone to the New York Jets. Thomas finished No. 12 in targets with 142, so hopefully Peyton Manning will rely on him a little more with Decker gone. Thomas is the go-to target, and weíre expecting another monster campaign. Thomas should be drafted by Round 2 in all leagues, and you can argue heís a first-round option in PPR formats.
Signed a 5-year, $36.5 million dollar contract with in $15 guaranteed cash with the New York Jets. Decker, 27, set career highs in catches (87) and receiving yards (1,288 yards) with Denver last season, scoring 11 touchdowns. Decker is a physical, largely sure-handed wideout who moves the chains and can beat defensive backs deep. Unfortunately, he's downgrading quarterbacks in spectacular fashion going from Peyton Manning to Geno Smith, and will be the focus of defensive attention in New York after serving as Manning's No. 3 or 4 option. Those numbers that will be very difficult to duplicate with the Jets.

He catches footballs from Peyton Manning - How much safer can you get in the 8-12 range?
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Led the NFL last season in YAC (Yards After Catch) with 704. Thomas poured in 14 TDs, 92 Receptions, 1,430 Receiving Yards and 143 Targets last season. Our rankings slot Calvin Johnson and Dez Bryant above Thomas, but there is a very real shot at Thomas finishing Number One. Adding another year of chemistry with Peyton Manning to the table and you have yourself a canít miss option. If you are able to grab Megatron, Bryant or Thomas Ė consider yourself locked in for major production all season.
Deckers QB play literally went from Worst to Best and back to Worst with Orton/Tebow to Peyton Manning to Geno Smith. This season is Deckerís first look at being a WR1 in his career as he enters the AFC East where he will square up against Patriots Darrelle Revis twice, Bills Stephon Gilmore twice and Dolphins Brent Grimes twice. Tough luck! Decker somehow managed to put up 8 TDs with the Orton/Tebow QB duo and is coming off 3 straight years with 1000+ yards. Deckerís 2014 outlook is solely in the hands of Geno Smiths production, but heís a great value pick if Geno Smith can take a step forward. Meanwhile, Decker and his hot wife will continue to post weird Pregnant Selfies (See LegionReport.com).
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Thomas may find it difficult to dupplicate his 2013 season if the Broncos do not have a historic season on offense, but with his combination of size and speed, he is a safe bet to keep posting stats in the neighborhood of 92 receptions, 1,430 yards and 14 touchdowns.
It will be interesting to see if Decker can have consistent fantasy numbers in the New York Jets chaotic passing game, but he will be the top option and could have some WR3 success.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
He barely missed out at being fantasy's #1 WR and his offense rocks. You may need to spend a 1st to get him.
Very talented with good speed and ball skills. Only problem is he's in a new system and has no quarterback.
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Love Demaryius' YAC ability, one of the truly elite options in the game
Will not post as gaudy numbers as he did with Peyton but Decker has talent and should push for WR2 numbers
