Not many teams have slowed down Broncos tight end
So far in the playoffs the Seahawks have faced Jimmy Graham and Vernon Davis in consecutive games and held them to a combined three catches for 24 yards, which is incredible. Now, Seattle has allowed six touchdowns to tight ends this season with three reaching double digits in Fantasy points.
And the Broncos are going to spread out this Seattle defense to allow Thomas plenty of room to operate in single coverage. He also will likely get close to the nine targets by himself that Graham (six) and Davis (three) combined for against Seattle, since he has 18 targets in the two playoff games and hasn't had fewer than five targets in eight consecutive games.
But this Seattle defense will make it tough on Thomas, who has gone three games in a row without a touchdown. He's easily the best tight end left for any Playoff Challenge leagues, but don't be surprised if he's held to single digits in Fantasy points for the sixth time in his past seven games based on the matchup.
This should be a fun position battle to watch to see how the Seahawks defend Thomas and if they can slow him down like they did with Graham and Davis. Hopefully we'll see Thomas shine, but don't be surprised if he's limited once again.
"It don't bother me,"
Thomas continues to be a complete mismatch for defenses. He drew a team-high 11 targets in the victory. Thomas will play the Seahawks or 49ers in Super Bowl XLVIII.
On 3rd-and-17, Thomas got wide open along the sideline and got his feet inbounds for a 21-yard gain. On 3rd-and-6, Thomas made a 9-yard catch to seal the win. He'll play the Patriots in next Sunday's AFC Championship Game.
