Broncos | Julius Thomas works with Tony Gonzalez

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 19:38:04 -0700

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas received several tips from Tony Gonzalez this offseason. "I wasn't going to rest on what I did last year," Thomas said. "I was really determined to come in and keep working and try to find every way I could to get better."

Fantasy Tip: With nine touchdowns through five games, it looks like Gonzalez's advice has paid dividends. Having Payton Manning throwing him the ball probably has something to do with Thomas' success, as well. Either way, Thomas has been the best tight end in the game this year, and if you are going to pay for a premium player at the position, he is the guy to target. He will take up 14.2% of the cap ($7,100) at FantasyScore in Week 7, and he could have a big game against a San Diego defense that allowed four touchdowns passes to rookie Derek Carr last weekend.

Broncos | Julius Thomas has big night

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 20:39:02 -0700

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas opened the 2014 regular season with seven receptions, 104 yards and three touchdowns (3, 35, 5) in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas was a top fantasy option heading into the season, and a top-tier option at FantasyScore. Unfortunately, this giant performance will provide make his FantasyScore salary skyrocket in Week 2, and he won't be a great value unless he can keep up this production regularly. And that is rather unrealistic.

Broncos | Elway: Julius Thomas not at Jimmy Graham level

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 09:29:08 -0700

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas is a priority for the team to sign to a long-term deal, but general manager John Elway isn't willing to pay him close to what New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham received. Elway said the team hasn't received a response from Thomas' representation after the team's initial offer. "Even though Julius had a tremendous year for us, he's only (played) 23 games. We want Julius to be a Bronco for a long time and we think he has tremendous upside, but he's not at that level," Elway said.

Broncos | Julius Thomas adding versatility

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 06:40:01 -0700

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas said the team will use him a lot more creatively this season. He also said he's focused on refining his technique and improving his role in pass and run blocking. "What I think people will see different in me (this year) is that they will use me a lot more creatively," Thomas said. "I think there are a lot of things that our offense wanted to do with me, but you can only learn so much in one year. No matter how much time you have at practice, it never seems to be enough when you're learning and trying to come into your own."

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is in a contract year and seems to have more of a grip on the playbook and more confidence. He has given every indication of a solid TE1.

Broncos | Julius Thomas working on blocking

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 14:03:00 -0700

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas is working on his footwork and balance, in an effort to improve his blocking. Thomas stands to see additional playing time (potentially 75 more snaps over the season) if he shores up his blocking.

Fantasy Tip: Any additional playing time Thomas can earn is good for fantasy owners. He will be costly on draft day, but is a TE1 with room to build on his 2013 numbers now that Eric Decker is gone.

Broncos | Julius Thomas monitoring Jimmy Graham situation

Sat, 21 Jun 2014 06:15:54 -0700

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas is monitoring the arbitration case between New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham and his team to determine his position. "I've kind of been keeping ... an eye on that situation, obviously, because it could probably come back to affect a lot of us tight ends," said Thomas, who is scheduled to make $645,000 this year. "But the way I feel about it is, 'Does two letters next to your name on the depth chart really determine your value to a team?'"
