Re: Fantasy Football Advice!
Love Thomas this year (as evidenced by my owning him in every league) and I believe he will easily outperform Steve Smith over the course of the season.
If you don't want to be in on Thomas for the long haul, wait another few weeks when you will be able to do much better than Steve Smith.
Understand that he and Manning are still getting in sync with one another. And, Peyton is no dummy... He knows what kind of talent he has in Thomas. He will be constantly scanning the defense at the LOS to look for ways he can exploit that ridiculous athleticism by checking into advantageous situations (as he did on Sunday.
I like to sell guys high, but I believe Thomas' ceiling this year goes far beyond a one-week breakout.
Hold onto him.
