There is no 2015 profile for this player yet. Here is his 2014 profile:

2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Stud: That's simply the best way to describe Thomas. The Broncos led wideout caught 92 balls for 1,430 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2013. The scary thing is with running mate Eric Decker chasing the coin to New York, Thomas could actually improve on those numbers in 2014. He's playing in an offense that put up historic numbers last year with one of the best QBs ever to play the game throwing him the ball. To make things even more scary, he has the drive to get better. Working out with the likes of Calvin Johnson and A.J. Green in the offseason, Thomas is doing the things needed to continue to improve. By the way, he's only 26 years old and is technically in the midst of his prime.

Editor's note: Thomas was a beast in college and everybody knew it. It's crazy to think two of the best WRs in the NFL are from Georgia Tech (Thomas and Megatron), a school not exactly known to be a powerhouse. Thomas can do a little bit of everything and (most importantly) that includes being a prolific deep threat. Thomas is one of a handful of receivers who could realistically finish as fantasy's top WR.

Latest Update

May-28-15 Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas a no-show at OTAs

The Broncos' WR1 Demaryius Thomas has still not reported to camp. He was franchised this offseason and is yet to sign. Thomas would obviously like a long-term deal but it doesn't appear that is the plan for this offseason. Head coach Gary Kubiak would like him there of course, nevertheless, he understands the situation. "I'd rather him be here. Y'all know that. He knows that. The players know that," Kubiak said. "So you want everybody here. But you also understand the rules, you understand the situation, you understand what's going on. So as a coach I think you've got to deal with what's going on here, and we've got a lot of guys working their tail off, and I'm counting on him taking care of his business. His history says he will do that. He's been a great player and a great person, as well. We're counting on him doing that, and I know his teammates are doing the same."

Fantasy Analysis:

This is not a major issue yet. Nonetheless, with a new coach and new system the sooner he joins the team the better. Thomas is still a WR1 but perhaps a low-end WR1 this season. Manning isn't the QB he once was, especially as the season drags on. The team also seems to be heading in the direction of a more run-oriented offense under Kubiak. Hopefully Thomas gets his contract issues situated soon and his fantasy owners can breathe easy.
