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."

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.
