 Siemian isn't going to be as precise as Peyton Manning when distributing touchdowns between his top-two receivers, but I expect Thomas to see a few extra targets near the goal line after Emmanuel Sanders reeled in two touchdowns last week.
Derek Lofland

Houston is 3rd against fantasy receivers this year, but this will be their toughest test of the season. The Bills are 5th against receivers with an easy early schedule, Thomas is playing on a hot offense and is a WR2 with upside.
