Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas has been a monster in fantasy football this season, and that continued in Week 11 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

In the win, Thomas racked up 116 yards on four catches—all of which he garnered in the first half.

Late in the first quarter, Thomas burned Chiefs safety Quintin Demps for 70 yards down the right sideline to set up a Julius Thomas touchdown.

The Georgia Tech product has emerged as an obvious starter in fantasy this season. This performance is coming off the heels of a three-touchdown, 108-yard performance last week against San Diego.

Last week was the third time this season that Thomas caught at least two touchdowns in one game.

Peyton Manning has a knack for getting all of his receivers involved, but he's shown no apathy in throwing Thomas' way early and often. His stats reflect that. 

Thomas should be a WR1 on nearly every fantasy roster, and you would have to boast an overly dominant roster in order to have any argument against starting him. Thomas was drafted high in most leagues, and he has made that decision pay off for thousands of fantasy general managers. 

Started in 97.5 percent of ESPN leagues, Thomas is as solid as they come in fantasy football.
