Patriots release Demaryius Thomas

The Patriots have released WR Demaryius Thomas, per ESPN's Field Yates.

Fantasy Impact: 

This is a bit of a surprise move as Thomas had come off the PUP list on August 20 and looked like he was going to make the roster, especially after posting a 7/87/2 line in the preseason finale against the Giants. Perhaps Thomas returns to the Patriots after Week 1, when his salary will not be guaranteed. The Patriots initially kept seven receivers, including undrafted rookies Jakobi Meyers and Gunner Olszewski. Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett and Josh Gordon will lead the charge in the wide receiver room.
