Thomas hauled in Peyton Manning's record-breaking score on an eight-yard pass in the second quarter then hauled in a 40-yard bomb over the top after halftime for his second score. After starting the season slow with only 141 yards and one touchdown in his first three games, the elite wide receiver has racked up 521 yards and five touchdowns in his last three games. He'll look to keep rolling when the Broncos face the Chargers on Thursday.
Thomas managed 61 yards receiving on the first possession and added a 1-yard touchdown reception with 5:50 remaining in the half. He snagged five passes for 83 yards before intermission and finished with 10 catches for 124 yards to lead both teams in both categories.
The prolific wideout has snagged 18 passes for 350 yards and three touchdowns in the last two games combined. He will try to stay sizzling against the 49ers in Week 7.
After underwhelming to begin the year, averaging 4.3 catches for 47.0 yards the first three weeks before going on bye in the fourth,
Other than the numbers, there was never any reason to doubt Thomas. He still has superior size and breakaway speed, not to mention the best quarterback in the game throwing him the football.
You drafted Thomas as a top-five wide receiver, and ultimately, that's what he'll be in Fantasy. I expect greater consistency from him going forward.
Thomas gained a whopping 226 yards on eight receptions during the contest. Thomas showed off his big-play ability, hauling in five passes that went for at least 20 yards. His biggest play of the game was an 86 yard touchdown reception from Peyton Manning. Thomas had a chance for more during the contest, but had another score wiped out due to a penalty. At the beginning of the third quarter, Thomas broke free for a 77 yard score. The play was negated due to a cut block at the line of scrimmage. Even without the extra score, Thomas still had a monster day.
He'll take on the Jets Week 6.
After back-to-back 90-catch, 1,400-yard seasons,
"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."
