In the midst of a five-game winning streak, the Houston Texans are about to get a whole lot better on offense.

After losing Will Fuller to a torn ACL, the team is reportedly closing in on a trade for Denver Broncos Pro Bowl wide receiver Demaryius Thomas.

This really could rock the foundation of the AFC Playoff race moving forward. Teaming Thomas up with stud No. 1 pass catcher DeAndre Hopkins is going to be an absolute boon for young quarterback Deshaun Watson.

Thomas, 30, has put up 36 receptions for 402 yards in eight games this season. He had tallied 1,000-plus yards in five consecutive seasons prior to falling just short of that mark in 2017.

For the Broncos, this means rookie second-round pick Courtland Sutton will be the starter opposite Emmanuel Sanders moving forward. Sutton has tremendous upside and looks to be a future Pro Bowler in his own right.
