WR - FA
Week 12 Outlook
The Denver Broncos announced on their Twitter page that former WR Demaryius Thomas has announced his retirement.
Thomas played nine season with the Broncos from 2010 to 2018. He was also a member of the Texans and Jets. Thomas caught 724 passes for 9,763 yards and 63 touchdowns in his career. The best season of his career was in 2014 when Peyton Manning was at the helm. He caught 111 passes for 1,619 yards and 11 touchdowns that season. Thomas was one of the most exciting and underrated players to watch in his prime and is one of the best Broncos wide receivers ever. It's unsure if he will get into the Hall of Fame, but hats off to him for a very productive career.
According to sources, the New York Jets are still in talks with free agent WR Demaryius Thomas.
The 32-year played 11 games for the Jets in 2019, catching 36 balls for 433 yards and one touchdown. Thomas hasn’t had a truly productive season in the NFL since 2017, his second to last year with the Broncos, when he caught 83 passes for 949 yards and five touchdowns. He sits just 237 yards away from 10,000 yards in his career, and he could certainly hit that mark with one more season in the league. If he joins the Jets, he’d likely be the fourth-option in a relatively crowded WR group with Denzel Mims, Breshad Perriman, and Jamison Crowder all ahead of him on the depth chart.
ProFootball Talk is reporting that free agent wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is healthy and looking for a place to play.
So far this offseason, there have been no teams showing any interest in signing the veteran. Thomas was signed last offseason by the Patriots and was traded to the Jets in September. Thomas had 36 receptions for 433 yards and one touchdown in 11 games last season. Thomas might not get an opportunity to sign with a team until after the NFL draft.
Demaryius Thomas is inactive for the Jets' game against the Bills in Week 17.
Thomas has been battling a hamstring injury for several weeks and wasn't a consideration in any fantasy format at this point. His continued absence should again lead to increased targets for both Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder against a largely resting Buffalo defense.
Demaryius Thomas (hamstring/knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers.
Thomas was listed as doubtful heading into Week 16, it's not a surprise he is inactive. He will miss his second consecutive game due to a hamstring injury. Vyncint Smith should slot in as the Jets third wide receiver behind Jamison Crowder and Robby Anderson.
