Demaryius Thomas, WR, Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders
DraftKings Price: $5,600
Thomas had a solid season opener in Week 1 catching 6-of-10 targets for 63 yards and 1 touchdown. While Thomas looked like the second option on offense behind Emmanuel Sanders, his double digit targets are an encouraging sign. The upgrade at quarterback with Case Keenum will be a welcome sight for Thomas in a very important year as the Broncos have a potential out with Thomas’ contract after this season according to Spotrac.com.
This week, Thomas will get a solid matchup against the division-rival Oakland Raiders. Thomas has four games over 100 yards in his career against the Raiders per pro-football-reference.com and will look to find the end zone once again as a preferred option for Keenum in the red zone. Thomas saves you $600 in cap space compared to Sanders this week while presenting equal upside in what should be a fairly competitive matchup.
