Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas says '50-50' chance he's traded

In the moments after Sunday’s 30-23 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, a plainly frustrated Demaryius Thomas put the odds at "50-50" that he will be traded in the coming days.

“How would you feel at your job [if] your boss, whoever, said they wanted you someplace else?" Thomas said. “And you come into work every day and have to think about it? How would you feel? But I had to do it for my team, like it was normal, act like it was normal. It just kept coming up, from left and right … I had to think about it … It’ll be interesting to see what happens in next couple days."

Fantasy Impact: 

Thomas is second on the team in receptions (36) and receiving yards (402) and tied for the team lead in receiving touchdowns (three) this season. But his hefty salary-cap figure for 2019 -- $17.533 million in what is the last year of his deal -- and the emergence of the rookie Sutton as a big-play threat have raised the possibility of Thomas being shipped elsewhere. The story mentioned the Patriots and Eagles as possible destinations. If Thomas is moved, Sutton would become a must-own, and it's probably worth stashing him as soon as possible if he's still on your wire.
