The Denver Broncos and the agent for WR Demaryius Thomas have opened negotiations on a long-term contract extension.
Even though Peyton Manning's years at quarterback are numbered, the Broncos would be wise to lock up one of the best receivers in the league. Thomas has had back-to-back monster seasons and should have no problem putting up insane numbers once again this year.ANALYST: David Kerr
Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said the team is giving Marcus Mariota more chances to run the football.
One of the bigger surprises this fantasy season has been the lack of running by Mariota, considering he came from a read option offense in Oregon. However, the rookie quarterback has still been a solid fantasy option despite the lack of running, so this will give a slight boost to his value if he is able to churn out a few yards on the ground. It’s always a tough situation when quarterbacks run more as they open themselves up for injury, but the Titans must feel confident that Mariota will know how to protect himself when he decides to take off and run.
