WR Demaryius Thomas wants to return to Texans

Monday, January 7, 2019, 3:03pm

Houston Chronicle - [Full Article]

With his surgically repaired torn Achilles propped up behind him, veteran wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is looking at an uncertain future.

Although the 31-year-old five-time Pro Bowl selection would like to be back with the Texans, it will take him roughly six months to rehab the injury. And his contract would need to be adjusted as he's due a nonguaranteed $14 million base salary next year.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story said, whether the Texans would need Thomas with the healthy return of Will Fuller and Keke Coutee working in tandem with All-Pro DeAndre Hopkins is another question.

Scouting Report

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.
