2. Demaryius Thomas
Being this is just his second game with the Houston Texans, and after having an extra week to learn the playbook, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is a must-watch player for Sunday. Thomas is a player who can become a big-time player for the Texans this weekend.
The Texans traded for Thomas in Week 9 to take the place of injured wide receiver Will Fuller. In his first game with the Texans that same week, Thomas made three receptions for his new team with less than a week with his new teammates.
Now following a bye week with the Texans to become more accustomed with not only the playbook of the Texans, but even more importantly to become more accustomed with his new teammates. Thomas could made waves on Sunday against the Washington Redskins in Week 11.
The Redskins are allowing 361 yards passing per game, which ranks 25th in the NFL, meaning the duo of Deshaun Watson to Thomas could have big rewards. If nothing else he’ll take pressure off of star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins as he’ll most likely do his thing as well.
Thomas has traditionally become one of the more feared wide receivers in the NFL, and though he’s not the most feared wide receiver anymore, the veteran wide receiver still deserves focus from his opponents. That alone makes him a must-watch player against the Redskins.
