8/8:Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas said the labrum in his hip is partially torn and has bothered him for years, but he's managed to fight through the pain and play a full 16 games each of the last six seasons. "For, like, the past two years, for real, it's been my neck and my hip," Thomas told me last week as the two of us stood alone in an end zone on the Broncos' practice field. "It was just times I couldn't compete my best. And you know, sometimes, I remember one game we were playing the Patriots, and the corner (Logan Ryan) called it out. He said, 'You're not yourself.' And I was like, 'Man, I'm doing whatever I can to try to get attention.'" Thomas seriously contemplated retirement last year after playing through intense pain in 2016 and 2017. But this offseason has sparked a change in his thinking and he feels healthy and rejuvenated after having his blood tested. From there he followed a plan to help his body avoid inflammation, starting with diet. Thomas is leaner, stronger and motivated in training camp after a workout program that didn't involve weights. He continues to follow a strict diet and is having one of his best camps in years, according to multiple people around the Broncos. Thomas failed to hit the 1,000-yard mark last year for the first time since 2011, but most of it can be blamed on bad quarterback play. With Case Keenum in town now, he should help Thomas bounce back to being a solid WR2 for fantasy owners.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBaller
