After losing No. 2 wideout Will Fuller to a torn ACL, the Texans needed to make a move. And they did exactly that, acquiring a 1B in Demaryius Thomas to compliment their 1A, DeAndre Hopkins.

And Thomas won't have to leave Denver for very long as the Texans are coming to town this Sunday.

This is is an instant upgrade to Thomas' fantasy value, and should help Hopkins' as well. He's still going to get double coverage, but Thomas can pull some of the attention away from him. In fact, this might be a bigger boon for Hopkins than DT.

Also, don't overlook the impact this move could have on running back Lamar Miller, as team's won't be able to stack the box with Pro Bowl wideouts on both sides.

The only person this might not be great for is Keke Coutee. Not only is he battling a hamstring injury right now, but the slot receiver had substantially fewer targets when Fuller was on the field. And Thomas will likely see a similar target share.  

​​Deshaun Watson has to be salivating over the possibilities his offense now has.
