Indy is not going to be able to generate a pass rush against the Denver Broncos, which is great news for Thomas owners.
Allen is going to have a tough opener going against Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson, but he sees enough targets to maintain WR3 value.

He should see plenty of Patrick Peterson in this one. Temper expectations.
