Fantasy Profile: Demaryius Thomas, WR, Denver Broncos

Aside from Antonio Brown, there may not be another wide receiver I have ranked higher in 2015 than Demaryius Thomas. Sure, Peyton Manning is on the back end of his career, but there is still enough lead in the pencil to provide Thomas with another monster season. Factor in the losses of red zone weapon Julius Thomas (tight end/Jacksonville) and slot receiver Wes Welker (wide receiver/free agent), and the potential for Thomas to dominate even more in all phases of the game is high.

It may be crazy to think that his 2014 season totals of 111 receptions, 1619 yards and 11 touchdowns are possible to improve upon, but I do not see any major reason why Thomas will not at least approach those numbers again. He will be drafted high, and deserves the draft position.
