Demaryius Thomas got his ankle stepped on in practice but he should be okay for Week 14. We break down the fantasy implications.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas was limited in Wednesday's practice with a minor ankle injury. Thomas got his ankle stepped on during practice but it's not believed to be a serious issue. He should be 100 percent for Sunday's Week 14 game against the Buffalo Bills.
After a slow start to the year (by his standards), Thomas has caught fire as the No. 1 receiver for Peyton Manning. Through 12 games, he already has 88 catches for 1,255 yards and 10 touchdowns. He's on pace to shatter his career marks of 94 catches, 1,434 yards and 14 scores.
Fantasy impact: Thomas might be limited again in Thursday and Friday's practices, but he's not in any danger of missing the game. One of the best matchup-proof receivers in fantasy, Thomas can be fired up as an easy WR1 in all leagues. He'll be an invaluable asset during the fantasy playoffs while the Broncos look to grab the No. 1 seed.
