Fantasy Football, Week 6: Demaryius Thomas should take advantage of Chargers defense

Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas has a chance to take advantage of a Chargers pass defense that struggled against New Orleans last week. As such, he's considered a solid fantasy play.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas appears to be a solid fantasy play heading into Monday night's contest against the San Diego Chargers, according to NumberFire.

Thomas is projected to catch five balls for 70 yards and a touchdown against the Chargers, who enter the game with the NFL's 20th-ranked pass defense. Last week, two New Orleans Saints wideouts eclipsed the 100-yard mark against San Diego. The Chargers allowed 370 yards and four touchdowns through the air. That should indicate that Thomas, who is averaging over 100 receiving yards per game as Peyton Manning's No. 1 target, is in for a strong performance on Monday night.

Over in the Fantasy War Room, SB Nation Fantasy picked Thomas to start over Marques Colston and Julio Jones. Also at SB Nation's fantasy football hub, Kenneth Arthur notes that Thomas, who is already just 38 yards shy of tying his single-season career high in receiving yards, "looks set as a solid WR1 right now."
