I think it hurts decker more. Thomas is a stud.

Thomas is a top WR, just because a player comes into a system doesn't make that top player any less valuable.

Essentially, it makes the offense better but it doesnt improve Mannings value very much. The Broncos love sitting on big leads which doesn't give you the 300+ 3TD like Brees and Brady. Mannings best fantasy games last season came when they were behind in the 2nd half.

Brees and Brady rely on the pass to set up the run. John Fox is a run first type of coach.

Dude Manning went 300 and 2-3 consistently last year

Four of the last seven games he didn't throw for 300 yards. Two in which he only had one touchdown and five games in which he threw an interception.

Early in the year Manning was unstoppable, but when the Broncos got early leads on their easy scheduled opponents Manning did not need to throw as much.

All I was saying was Welker doesn't hurt Manning's or Thomas' value. That's their deep ball threat and playmaker. Welker will fill Brandon Stokley's role which is a huge improvement.
