We’re starting a new weekly series, Between the Numbers (BTN), evaluating where some of Denver’s biggest stars stand in comparison to the rest of the NFL. Today, we’ll look at WR Demaryius Thomas. Thomas is averaging 97.0 receiving yards per game heading into Week 9 of the season, which ranks second in the NFL.  Here’s a look at how the stacks up against the rest of the receivers in the NFL: table.tableizer-table {border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px;} .tableizer-table td {padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc;} .tableizer-table th {background-color: #104E8B; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold;} WR Demaryius Thomas Yards Avg.

What have you thought of Thomas’s performance through the season thus far? Has he lived up to your expectations?
