De’Anthony Thomas – WR
It’s been a strange road for Kansas City Chiefs receiver De’Anthony Thomas, but he has continued to flash at points this year. Some will be surprised that I’m including him on this list, but the reasoning is pretty simple. With all the focus that will be on Tyreek Hill, it’s easy to forget about what Thomas can do.
Don’t forget that De’Anthony Thomas has world class track speed in his own right. So when the Chiefs look like their throwing that obvious screen pass, don’t be surprised when the ball actually ends up in the hands of Thomas and he is sprinting down the field with nobody that can catch him.
That speed makes him very dangerous.
Thomas has demonstrated his big play ability before for the Chiefs. Though never a featured weapon for KC’s offense, he has gotten opportunities to break off big plays. With Tyreek Hill sharing the field now, it will be difficult for opposing defenses to key in when DAT steps out there. That adds to his ability to be dangerous. You don’t want to forget about a guy with speed like that.
