Demaryius Thomas signing with Patriots

Demaryius Thomas is signing with the New England Patriots, per Field Yates. The details of the contract are unknown.

Fantasy Impact

Given Thomas's age and recent injury history, it's unlikely the deal would be high-value or long-term. Thomas is most likely on a one-year deal to ride off into the sunset on a contending team. However, the depth chart is practically nonexistent, so Thomas could see starter reps immediately. If he's healthy for the start of the season, it's conceivable that Thomas could even be in the WR3 conversation since the Patriots have few other WRs and Rob Gronkowski has retired. This is absolutely a noteworthy signing for a player who was approaching droppable territory in dynasty leagues.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas was drafted by Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and the team has shown interest in him before. He's now 31 and coming off an achilles tear, so it's fair to wonder how much he has left in the tank. If there's a team that could squeeze some value out of him it's probably New England.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas was also driving without proof of insurance. This all took place back on February 16th, and it isn't a great start to the off-season for the free agent wideout. Still recovering from a torn Achilles, Thomas might not sign until later in the summer.

Demaryius Thomas expected to be released

NFL Network's James Palmer is reporting the Texans are expected to release WR Demaryius Thomas on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Despite trading for Thomas around the 2018 trade deadline, it looks like the Texans are releasing the 31-year-old wideout at some point in the day. Although Thomas flashed with a two-touchdown performance against the Titans in Week 12, his short stint in Houston will likely be remembered as a fail, concluding with a season-ending Achilles tear suffered in Week 16. For Thomas, there is still no timetable for his return from his injury but should land with a new club when he's good to go.

Demaryius Thomas (achilles) officially placed on IR

The Texans have officially placed Demaryius Thomas (achilles) on injured reserve.

Fantasy Impact

It's a disappointing end to a disappointing season for Thomas, who never made an impact following a mid-season trade to Houston. The 31-year-old finishes his season with 677 yards and 5 touchdowns in 15 games. He's expected to become a free agent over the off-season, and it's unclear how much interest there will be in him.
