|Demaryius Thomas upset with slow start |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(9/25/14) After back-to-back 90-catch, 1,400-yard seasons, Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is far off that pace to start the 2014 season. He has just 13 catches for 141 yards through three games.
"I know I ain't playing at my highest potential right now. And I do get down on myself," Thomas told The Denver Post Wednesday. "I had the most drops in these first three games that I've had my entire career. I don't know what it is. I don't know if I'm thinking too much."
One area Thomas stresses is not an issue is playing for his next contract. He is in the final year of his rookie contract and free agency looms after Thomas and the Broncos failed to agree on a contract extension this summer.
"Nah, the contract is not part of it. The contract is going to work out by itself. I can't really do nothing about it," Thomas said. "Either you play well or you don't. There's no dollar signs involved when I'm playing football. All I care about is winning. So when I can't make the play, the reason I'm upset is I'm not helping the team win."
|Demaryius Thomas makes a couple of pivotal catches in OT loss |

(9/21/14) Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas worked through a sore foot injury and still managed to make some big plays in Week 3 overtime loss to the Seahawks.
The 26-year-old got off to a dreadful start on Sunday, as he was held without a grab in the first half. He came down with an 11-yard reception with just over a minute remaining in the third quarter for his first grab of the day.
Down eight points, Thomas converted a pivotal third down with under 30 remaining, which led to a Peyton Manning touchdown to Jacob Tamme on the following play. Thomas kept his feet in bounds near the back of the end zone for a spectacular catch for a two-point conversion following the touchdown, which sent the game to overtime.
Thomas, who was covered by Richard Sherman through most of the afternoon, finished with four catches for 31 yards. He was targeted 12 times in a 26-20 defeat. Thomas has not racked up more than 65 receiving yards in a game this season. He'll get a bye week before facing the Cardinals at home in Week 5.

|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/14/14) Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas caught five of his seven targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in his team's 24-17 win over the Chiefs Sunday.
Thomas hauled in a 12-yard pass near the end of the first half to put the Broncos up 21-1, but the Broncos couldn't get much done on offense in the second half, though they did hang on for a win to move to 2-0. Thomas caught just four of his 11 targets in Week 1 but had a much better game Sunday, despite the offense being limited to 26 pass attempts. He could be looking at a matchup with Richard Sherman next Sunday when the Broncos travel to Seattle for a Super Bowl rematch.
|Demaryius Thomas has a history of bouncing back |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(9/12/14) Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas admitted he let his first drop get to him in Week 1 against the Colts, which led to two more for the usually sure-handed wideout.
"It was bothering me after the first one and I guess I let it linger on and bother me the other two," Thomas told the team's official website.
Thomas had a drop in the first quarter on a screen last Sunday, and added one more in each of the third and fourth quarters. He was credited with just eight dropped passes a year ago, and will look to bounce back in Week 2 against the Chiefs, and has a history of doing so after his rare missteps.
He has failed to record 50-plus yards in a game just four times since Dec., 2012, but averaged 6.3 catches for 123 yards and a touchdown in the next four games.
"(Week 1) was tough," said Thomas. "But it's over with now, and I go on to the next (game)."
|Demaryius Thomas can't get going Week 1 |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(9/8/14) Broncos No. 1 receiver Demaryius Thomas had a frustrating night in the 31-24 win over the Colts. Although he drew a team-high 11 targets, he was often double-covered and a few of Peyton Manning's throws were not catchable.
Thomas compounded matters by dropping two easy passes, including a bubble screen that could have been a long gainer. Thomas finished with four catches for 48 yards -- worse production than he had in all but one game last year.
To be fair, Thomas drew two defensive penalties. He got held once after beating his man deep, a play that could have gone for a touchdown. And Manning targeted him three straight times in the end zone on one series.
Thomas will try to get back to his normal self Week 2 against the Chiefs.

|Demaryius Thomas finished as the No. 1 Fantasy receiver in 2013, and hopefully he can stay there this season. Thomas had 92 catches for 1,430 yards and 14 touchdowns, which led all receivers. He closed the year with double digits in Fantasy points in nine of the final 10 games, and he could see a bump in targets with Eric Decker now gone to the Jets. Thomas finished No. 12 in targets with 142, so hopefully Peyton Manning will rely on him a little more with Decker gone. The Broncos have a loaded receiving corps even without Decker with Thomas, Julius Thomas, Wes Welker and Emmanuel Sanders. But Demaryius Thomas is the go-to target, and we're expecting another monster campaign. Thomas should be drafted by Round 2 in all leagues, and you can argue he's a first-round option in PPR formats.
