Demaryius Thomas Fantasy Value After Texans Trade

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the Texans are in the closing stages of acquiring wide receiver Demaryius Thomas. The move makes sense after Houston lost Will Fuller for the rest of the season. Here are the details of the trade per Rapoport.

“Sources: The #Texans are closing in on a deal for #Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas in exchange for a mid-round pick. They are finalizing. It’s Courtland Sutton’s time…My understanding is the #Broncos held firm on a 4th round pick, though that may not be the end of the compensation,” Rapoport tweeted.

What is Thomas’ fantasy value with the Texans? While it certainly helps Thomas to have Deshaun Watson at quarterback, Thomas has had a disappointing season. Thomas had just eight receptions for 72 yards over the last two games. Some of this could be a product of the Broncos passing game that has struggled, but those expecting to see vintage Thomas now that he is in a Texans uniform will likely be mistaken. With the Texans, Thomas will hover around WR3 territory the rest of the season.
