Fantasy Football Demaryius Thomas Trade to Houston Opens Big Opportunity for Courtland Sutton Fantasy Football Demaryius Thomas Trade to Houston Opens Big Opportunity for Courtland Sutton

Following the Broncos' fifth loss of the season on Sunday, October 28, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas told reporters that he felt he had a fifty-fifty chance of getting traded.

According to Mike Klis of 9News in Denver, the Eagles, Patriots and Titans all made offers, but ultimately he was shipped to Houston in exchange for a 2019 fourth-round pick and the teams will swap seventh-rounders.

Thomas is second on the Broncos in receptions (36) and receiving yards (402) and tied for the team lead in receiving touchdowns (three) this season. It is expected that Sutton will receive more playing time in Thomas's absence.

Thomas will have the chance to face his former team in just five days, as the Texans face the Broncos in Mile High Stadium on November 4.

Thomas was the longest-tenured Broncos player after being drafted by the team in 2010. He has five consecutive seasons of at least 90 catches and 1,000 receiving yards.

Thomas has played his entire nine-year career with the Broncos.

Miller wasn't the only one in Denver who publicly lamented Thomas' trade to Houston.

Not mentioned in that press release was Thomas' contractual situation, in which the Texans are on the hook for the remainder of his $4,500,000 salary this season, with a non-guaranteed 2019 salary of $14,000,000 on the books for 2019.

National Football League trade deadline is off and running.

Both the Texans and Broncos have had their ups-and-downs this season with the Texans being 5-3 overall and the Broncos entering the game at 3-5, losing to the Kansas City Chiefs, 30-23 last Sunday. Between this Thomas deal, the surprisingly productive rookie class, and the prudent management of the salary cap, I am very enthused about the Brian Gaine Era, thus far.
