Houston Texans wide receiver Demaryius Thomas sure made it easy to scope out one of the biggest fantasy disappointments of the entire Week 11 slate thus far Sunday afternoon. 


After putting up a complete goose egg in a matchup with the Washington Redksins that saw his own team score 23 total points and win the game, Thomas is easily an undisputed fantasy no-show from this weekend. 

That's right, Thomas was actually just a single target from putting up the same sort of stats and production that a player on a bye week would mirror on your fantasy bench. 


Zero touchdowns, zero receptions, zero catches, and zero yards are a tough way to finish a Sunday as one of the Top-20 fantasy options at your position. 

Thomas certainly hasn't had the best season of his career, which was a big factor in him being traded to the Texans earlier this season. He had 3 catches for 61 yards in his first game with the Texans before being completely shut down in this game. On the season, he has 402 yards and 3 TDs. 

Prior to Sunday, Thomas hadn't hauled in fewer than three receptions and 18 yards all season, so this one was really out of left field for the veteran talent.
