Demaryius Thomas

It’s been a ‘slow’ return to the field for Thomas after his holdout this offseason and then quickly being brought up to speed in the new offense. If you drafted Thomas, you obviously used a first or second round pick on him. You need to play him.

That said, I’m probably the most optimistic person in the world when it comes to the Broncos and I’m a little bit nervous about the Demaryius-Peyton connection right now. The two weren’t quite on the same page in the preseason, so the Broncos are going to look to scheme the ball into Demaryius’ hands in this game against a Ravens secondary that can be had.

Keep DT in your lineup obviously, but keep a close eye on how well he seems to be progressing in this offense. I’m sure he’ll make me look stupid for doubting him and have a huge game.
