Thomas became expendable after the Patriots traded for Antonio Brown. ESPN reports Gase was critical of the Jet WRs after the team's loss to the Bills 17-16, especially Robby Anderson, according to ESPN. It's a reunion for Thomas and Gase from their days in Denver.
HOU WR Demaryius Thomas - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 16 at Philadelphia Eagles
With DeAndre Hopkins going off for 170 yards and two TDs at the Jets last Saturday, Demaryius Thomas still posted decent numbers. On eight targets, he recorded six receptions for 59 yards, accounting for the most grabs he’s had since being traded to Houston and his second-highest yardage total. With the Texans thin at WR, Thomas should continue to receive a decent amount of looks from Deshaun Watson. He makes for a WR3/flex start on Sunday versus a poor Eagles pass defense.
