Fantasy football owners have certainly made Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas a hot pickup over the last couple of weeks; however, as we head into championship weekend, Thomas is making his biggest splash yet on the waiver wire. One week ago, Thomas was owned in 17 percent of ESPN leagues and a now he's up to 36.6 percent of leagues.
Thomas has become Tim Tebow's favorite target over the last three weeks. From his 144 yards and two touchdowns against the Minnesota Vikings to his seven catches against the Chicago Bears and then his seven catches for 116 yards against the Patriots, Thomas, not Eric Decker, is the star wide receiver for the Broncos.
After a less than satisfactory rookie campaign and then a torn Achilles tendon during the offseason, Thomas then missed the first five games of the season due to a broken pinky. During his early games, Thomas was barely a factor on the field, but once Tebow started to show progress as a passer so too did Thomas as a receiver.
