Jaguars | Julius Thomas to have surgery

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 14:18:57 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (finger) will undergo surgery on his injured finger Wednesday, Sept. 2, according to a source. Thomas is expected to miss four to five weeks.

Fantasy Tip: This injury puts Thomas into low-end TE1 or high-end TE2 territory. Marcedes Lewis and Clay Harbor will take over the reins at tight end, with Lewis holding more fantasy value. Lewis might be a good option on FantasyScore to start the season, but he's not worth drafting in seasonal leagues.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas expected to miss 4-5 weeks

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:30:22 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (finger) is expected to need surgery on a tendon in his finger and is expected to be out four to five weeks, according to a source. Thomas will receive a second opinion on his finger Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas suffered an injury in the first preseason game and will miss more time if he needs surgery. Thomas could still be a No. 1 tight end when he returns, but owners will need a strong backup that can fill in while Thomas is out. Marcedes Lewis likely will start with Thomas out but is not a great fantasy option. Clay Harbor could also see an expanded role but probably should be avoided by owners.

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 09:31:03 -0700

Jaguars | Julius Thomas actually injured right hand

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 05:27:05 -0700

Correcting a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (hand) injured his right hand, and not his left, the team announced Saturday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas was already setting up to witness a decline in production with his relocation to Jacksonville. However, he'll also now miss valuable practice time with his new team and in a new offense. It shouldn't be viewed as a serious setback, and Thomas is expected to be ready for Week 1. Still, his fantasy stock is losing serious helium, and it is extremely risky to view Thomas as a weekly staple in your lineup.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas has fractured hand

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 20:39:39 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (hand) has a stable fracture on the back of his left hand, and head coach Gus Bradley said he hopes to have Thomas back by Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Monitor his status in the coming weeks, but it sounds like Thomas could be back sooner rather than. Continue to draft him as a TE1.

Jaguars | Finger fracture for Julius Thomas

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 19:12:14 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (finger) suffered a "small" finger fracture Friday, Aug. 14, according to a source, and more will be known following a scan Saturday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: A finger fracture isn't a catastrophic injury, but depending on the exact nature of the injury, Thomas could miss some time or at least have some issues catching the ball. Wait for a definite diagnosis, but Thomas should still be viewed as a TE1 for now.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas leaves early

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 16:53:59 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (hand) left the preseason game early Friday, Aug. 14, and is being evaluated for a left hand injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to determine the severity of Thomas' injury. Thomas should see a solid amount of targets this season if he is healthy and could be a starting option against most opponents.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas making quick impression

Sun, 09 Aug 2015 17:21:28 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas has already established himself as "the best player on the team, period," according to LB Dan Skuta. "He's going to be a matchup nightmare for a lot of teams," Skuta said Satuday, Aug. 8. "Get him on some guys that aren't used to covering him like me. That's what happens with good players. You've got to be perfect."

Fantasy Tip: Thomas isn't going to put up the same numbers that he did in Denver, but he should immediately become Blake Bortles' go-to target, especially in the red zone, allowing Thomas to retain TE1 status in 2015.
