FantasyPros
Who would've thought that having Taysom Hill under center would unlock Thomas? Through three games with Brees, Thomas had just 10 catches for 95 yards. Through one game with Hill, he has nine catches for 104 yards. To be fair, the game was against the Falcons, but Hill looked Thomas' way early and often. Thomas received 12 of Hill's 23 pass attempts for a massive 52.2 percent target share. He'll have a tougher test this week against the Broncos, who've allowed just 7.47 yards per target to wide receivers this year, which is the second-lowest mark in the NFL, behind only the Rams. With that being said, alpha wide receivers have done well against them. On the year, there have been six wide receivers who've seen more than eight targets against them, and every one of those receivers finished with 15-plus PPR points. There have also been 13 wide receivers who've finished with five-plus receptions against them, which should present a great floor for Thomas. For now, we'll put him back in the WR1 conversation even though it is a small sample size with Hill because all we really wanted to know was that his target share would be there, and it was.His targets may not be what they've been in the past, but he leads all players with 13 targets inside the 10-yard-line. It has felt like Brady is pushing the ball his way a bit more over the last few weeks, though that could be from the elevated volume, as his 20.0 percent target share over the last four games is nothing crazy. Evans still hasn't topped 77 yards since way back in Week 4, though touchdowns have carried him through, as he's scored in 8-of-11 games this year. The Chiefs have allowed just eight touchdowns on the season, which ranks as the fifth-fewest in the NFL. Everyone seems to be amazed when I tell them the Chiefs are one of the best in the league against wide receivers, as they expect tons of targets. That hasn't been the case, as they've seen just 18.3 targets per game to the position, which means there are just three teams who've seen less. While volume has been an issue, so has efficiency, as receivers have averaged just 7.61 yards per target (5th-lowest) and a touchdown every 22.9 targets (10th-least often). Through 10 games, the Chiefs have allowed just 10 top-36 wide receivers. The matchup is easier than last week against the Rams, so if you want to see the positives, there you go. Evans' touchdown prowess keeps him in the low-end WR2 range.

Thomas finally had a 100-yard game this week, he is more of a WR2 playing with Taysom Hill, but he at least is back on the fantasy radar in what has been a lost season for him.Evans has scored a TD in 3 of his last 4 games, he is settling in as WR3 in a tough matchup agains the Chiefs 5th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.
