  • Chiefswide receiver De'Anthony Thomas touched the ball just three times on offense Sunday against the Bengals. Among the touches for Thomas was one catch for 11 yards and two carries for negative four yards. While Andy Reid discussed a plan to get the speedster the ball more often this season, he hasn't had much opportunity through the first four contests, and there's no indication that will be changing soon.

  • Chiefs wide receiver De'Anthony Thomas caught just two passes for 20 yards in Thursday's game against the Broncos. While Thomas' production was limited, he did receive a bump in the snap count from 18 in Week 1 to 26 in Week 2. He's expected to continue increasing his snap count as his calf becomes less of an issue.

  • Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (back) is among the 14 players the Chiefs list as probable for Thursday night's game against the Broncos. The same applies to fellow wideouts Albert Wilson, De'Anthony Thomas and Jason Avant. Maclin is looking to build off a Week 1 effort in which he caught 5-of-9 targets for 52 yards in the Chiefs' 27-20 win over the Texans.

  • The Chiefs need help at the wide receiver position. Desperately. Second-year player De'Anthony Thomas is striving to be the one who helps his team in that category. Thomas, who's listed as a running back, will be used in a more prominent role as a receiver this season, per "You saw him more as a receiver last year anyway,'' offensive coordinator Doug Pederson said. "We wanted to broaden his horizon on running routes because you don't get all that when you're in the running back room. You're not on the perimeter that much. So let's stick him over there with David Culley and let him teach him to run all the routes and the different concepts.'' Thomas rushed for 113 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries last season, while catching 23 passes for 156 yards.

  • De'Anthony Thomas was drafted out of Oregon by the Chiefs as a running back. Though he worked in a hybrid role as a rookie, he was listed by Kansas City as a running back. That could change in 2015. According to the Kansas City Star, Thomas said he's worked this offseason on becoming more of a complete receiver. "Yes, I have the ability to run the whole [route] tree," Thomas said. "That's what I've been working on this offseason. I'm running all those routes in the sand [during beach workouts]. And once the time comes to come on the grass, I feel like it's going to be a lot easier because I've prepared myself." Thomas ran for 113 yards and totaled 156 receiving yards in a reserve role. He made a big impact in the return game, combinging for 833 punt and kickoff return yards with a touchdown. With Thomas transitioning into being more of a receiver first, he's modeling him game after Steelers wideout Antonio Brown. Both are shorter targets, making the comparison fitting for Thomas. Thomas is listed at 5-feet-8, 176 pounds and Brown is 5-feet-10, 186 pounds. Brown had a career season in 2014, totaling 1,698 yards and 13 touchdowns. "I'm very impressed with Antonio Brown," Thomas said. "He's a great player, and I feel like I have the same ability to make the same plays like him and help the team and be that [kind of impact] player."
