2019 RTSports Outlook

Thomas split his season last year with the Broncos and Texans, finishing with 59 receptions for 677 yards and five touchdowns. His numbers were his lowest since 2011. Thomas also tore his Achilles' late in the season (Week 16), missing the last week of the year. Thomas had one 100-yard game but that was his only game with more than 65 yards. He was mediocre most weeks. Thomas is 31 years old and returning from a major injury. He should be ready for the start of this year, but you have to worry about his age and health moving forward. Thomas signed with the Patriots this offseason and will look to carve out a niche with his new team. He remains a big, physical receiver, but also has good speed, making him a big-play threat whenever the ball is in his hands. He really is the complete package at receiver when healthy and on his game. Fantasy Outlook: Thomas is trending the wrong way. He can rebound some after last year, especially in a good passing attack looking for options, but don't expect him to return to his form of past years. He should be considered a No. 3 or 4 fantasy receiver. Thomas can get around 75 receptions for 900 yards and six or so scores.

RotoBaller's Outlook

Its still up in the air whether Demaryius Thomas will be on the Patriots or not when week 1 rolls around. He hasnt been activated from the PUP list yet and itll cost him six weeks if he cant get healthy enough to do so before opening day. Even if he is healthy, the Patriots have a ton of competition at WR and Thomas isnt a guarantee to see much playing time. The upside is certainly there without an established WR1, but its looking like some other names are starting to stand out in camp. You can safely avoid Thomas.

New York Jets WR Demaryius Thomas posted four grabs for 62 yards on five targets in Week 6 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Spin: Thomas appears to be getting a little more comfortable with his new surroundings, he is healthy and now Sam Darnold is back, too. The veteran could still be a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams with a little more production. The Jets host the Patriots in Week 7 on Monday Night Football.

From TheHuddle

Oct 13 9:00pm ET

New York Jets wide receiver Demaryius Thomas made four catches for 62 yards in a win over the Cowboys Sunday. The 62 yards are the most Thomas has gained in three games played this season, and he has been getting more involved in the offense overall. On the Jets second drive, the first goal-to-go snap they ran was a quick slant to Thomas for what would have been an easy touchdown, had it not been for pass interference. Despite the Jets trying to get Thomas more involved, it'll be hard for them to support three fantasy-relevant wide receivers and Thomas has been the third guy behind Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder. As long as Anderson, Crowder and running back Le'Veon Bell are healthy, Thomas likely won't see enough targets to be relevant in standard-size fantasy leagues.

From RotoBaller

Oct 13 3:23pm ET

New York Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring, knee) is officially active for the team's Week 6 game.

Fantasy Spin: Thomas likely will receive a handful of targets against the Dallas Cowboys, but fantasy players may be able to find better options for their lineups this week.

From TheHuddle

Oct 11 6:43pm ET

New York Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring, knee) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

Fantasy Spin: Thomas should be available for the Week 6 game and is coming off a decent game last week. He is facing a solid Dallas Cowboys defense and could be avoided in most leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 11 4:50pm ET

New York Jets wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (hamstring, knee) was limited in practice all week and is questionable for Week 6 against the Cowboys. Thomas had four catches on a healthy nine targets for 47 yards in Week 5. Quarterback Sam Darnold (illness) is making his return against Dallas, but Thomas is still hard to trust as anything more than a desperation flex play in deeper leagues. Robby Anderson, Jamison Crowder and Le'Veon Bell figure to be Darnold's top three options when he looks to pass.

From RotoBaller

Oct 10 4:33pm ET

New York Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring, knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 10.

Fantasy Spin: Thomas was the team's leading receiver last week and should still have a decent role in the passing game with Sam Darnold back. He will be facing a good Dallas Cowboys defense this week and probably is only a possible flex option.

From TheHuddle

Oct 9 4:13pm ET

New York Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring/knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.

Fantasy Spin: Thomas caught four of nine targets for 47 yards last week against the Philadelphia Eagles. He's a low-ceiling flex option if able to get on the field with QB Sam Darnold.

From TheHuddle

Oct 6 8:30pm ET

New York Jets wide receiver Demaryius Thomas made four catches for 47 yards in a loss to the Eagles Sunday. Thomas was questionable coming into the game with a hamstring injury, but was able to suit up and was the most productive Jet receiver, for whatever that is worth. The positive sign for fantasy owners is Thomas did get nine targets, which was tied with running back Le'Veon Bell for the team lead, and most importantly left the game healthy. The Jets offense should look better with Sam Darnold (mono) back at QB, but for right now it's hard to trust anyone in this passing game. Thomas is worth a flier in deep leagues but is far from a must-own in fantasy.

From RotoBaller

Oct 6 6:53pm ET

New York Jets WR Demaryius Thomas caught four passes for 47 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5. He was targeted nine times during the game.

Fantasy Spin: Thomas appears to be a popular target for Luke Falk this week but did not have much success against the Eagles. He probably will serve as the No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for the Jets but can be avoided in most leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 6 12:23pm ET

New York Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 5 game.

Fantasy Spin: Thomas will be working with the backup quarterback this week, so he is a risky option in fantasy leagues. Fantasy players should be able to find better options and can avoid Thomas.

From TheHuddle

Oct 5 9:33am ET

New York Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) looked good during practice this week and is expected to play in the Week 5 game, according to head coach Adam Gase.

Fantasy Spin: Thomas likely will return to the starting lineup but will be working with a backup quarterback and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 4 7:03pm ET

New York Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) was limited during practice and is listed as questionable for Week 5.

Fantasy Spin: Thomas appears to have a chance to play in Week 5 but would be working with a backup quarterback if he plays. Fantasy players should be able to find better options and can avoid Thomas.

From TheHuddle

Oct 4 5:33pm ET

New York Jets LB Jordan Jenkins (calf) was held out of practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles. QB Sam Darnold (illness) was a limited participant in practice all week and has also been ruled out. LB C.J. Mosley (groin) and OG Kelechi Osemele (shoulder, knee) did not practice all week and are listed as doubtful. WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring), WR Josh Bellamy (shoulder), TE Daniel Brown (ankle) and DT Quinnen Williams (ankle) were limited in practice Friday, Oct. 4, and are listed as questionable. RB Trenton Cannon (hamstring, ankle), CB Brian Poole (groin), CB Darryl Roberts (ankle), OG Brian Winters (shoulder) and LB Tarell Basham (dehydration) were full participants in practice Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

From TheHuddle

Oct 4 4:20pm ET

New York Jets wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) and rookie defensive tackle Quinnen Williams (ankle) are listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Eagles. Head coach Adam Gase said that Thomas has looked good in practice. "It's looking very positive for us," Gase said. It looks like Thomas will be active, but he's not on the fantasy radar while behind receivers Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder. Oh, and third-string quarterback Luke Falk is making another start this weekend. The Jets Defense should be avoided in fantasy even if Williams returns. Stud linebacker C.J. Mosley (groin) will miss another game.

From RotoBaller

Oct 3 8:23pm ET

New York Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 3.

Fantasy Spin: Thomas may have a chance to play in Week 5, but fantasy players will know more about his status in the next few days. He likely will see some targets if he plays but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 3 4:53pm ET

New York Jets LB Jordan Jenkins (calf), LB C.J. Mosley (groin) and OG Kelechi Osemele (shoulder, knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 3. RB Trenton Cannon (hamstring, ankle), WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring), WR Josh Bellamy (shoulder), TE Daniel Brown (ankle), QB Sam Darnold (illness), DL Quinnen Williams (ankle) and LB Tarell Basham (dehydration) were limited. CB Brian Poole (groin), CB Darryl Roberts (ankle) and OG Brian Winters (shoulder) practiced in full.

From TheHuddle

Oct 2 4:43pm ET

New York Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Spin: Thomas has played just one game this season and made one catch for a loss of a yard. He should be on waiver wires everywhere.

From TheHuddle

Sep 30 4:33pm ET

New York Jets WR Demaryius Thomas' (hamstring, knee) status for Week 5 is uncertain at this point.

Fantasy Spin: Thomas was able to rest his injuries during the bye week but could still miss the Week 5 game if he is not able to practice. Fantasy players in all leagues should avoid Thomas this week and look for other options.

From TheHuddle

Sep 24 12:10am ET

New York Jets wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (hamstring, knee), linebacker C.J. Mosley (groin) and rookie defensive lineman Quinnen Williams (ankle) are all trending in the right direction for Week 5 against the Eagles, according to head coach Adam Gase. Thomas sat out in Week 3 but should return to the roster following the bye week. Still without an official practice with the team, DT is a long shot to be fantasy relevant in Week 5, even if Sam Darnold (illness) returns at quarterback. Getting Mosley and Williams back will be a big boost for Gang Green's defense, but they still won't be a recommended streaming option against Philly.

From RotoBaller

Sep 23 4:13pm ET

New York Jets LB C.J. Mosley (groin), DT Quinnen Williams (ankle) and WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring, knee) are making progress from their injuries, and head coach Adam Gase is 'optimistic' all three will be able to play after the team returns from an off week to play the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.
