Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Thomas should be fine to face the Patriots. Since 2015, Brock Osweiler has targeted Thomas on 28.7% of his passes as the quarterback for the Broncos.

Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (illness) sent home from practice

Anderson has now missed back-to-back practices due to an illness, but there doesn't appear to be any injury concern with the Broncos running back that might jeopardize him from playing against the New England Patriots this week. Still, this is a situation to monitor until inactives are announced.

Fantasy Impact:

In what shapes up to be a favorable matchup versus the Patriots, who are ranked 27th in RB aFPA, we currently have Anderson ranked as our No. 27 RB in standard leagues. If the illness he is suffering from is enough to keep him from playing this week, Devontae Booker would stand to benefit the most.

The Broncos' run game has been stale as of late, with only three rushing touchdowns scored by running backs this season—Anderson only has one (back in Week 2). Booker has been sprinkled in more the past two games, with a season-high six carries in each of the last two games. Anderson hasn't carried the ball more than 15 times in a game since Week 4. This is shaping up to be a potential timeshare situation.

Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. We’ll keep an eye on his injury status throughout the week, but for now we’re assuming that Thomas will play against the Patriots on Sunday night.

Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (shoulder) says he's 'close'

Tuesday, November 7, 2017, 1:30pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Broncos announced on Monday that Brock Osweiler will be making another start at quarterback when they take on the Patriots in Denver on Sunday night, which wasn’t much of a surprise given coach Vance Joseph’s take on where Paxton Lynch is after dealing with a right shoulder injury in the first half of the season.

“Close. I feel like right now if I was needed to play, obviously I’m going to help the team however I can,” Lynch said, via the Denver Post. “But that’s up to the training staff to decide. … I think they’ve done a good job with me so far in the training room and my reps and what not. I know they wanted to ease me into it, so it’s what they’re doing.”

Fantasy Impact:

Joseph said Lynch hasn't played football as a result of the injury and that it wouldn't be fair to Lynch and the team to throw him in there. It sounds like Lynch just needs to get back up to speed. A loss this week may quicken the process. Odds seem pretty good Lynch will see the field sooner rather than later the way this season is going for Denver.
