Jaguars | Julius Thomas busy at OTAs

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 19:52:37 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas' situation is much more stable this season, as he and QB Blake Bortles are building rapport during the offseason program. "Julius looks good," offensive coordinator Greg Olson said Monday, June 6. "Guys that have been here have been relatively healthy and Julius has been one of those guys, so he's been able to get a lot of reps and a lot of work in so far."

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has posted 29 touchdowns over the past three seasons, which is even more than Seattle's Jimmy Graham and New England's Rob Gronkowski during the same span. If Thomas can stay healthy he is a tremendous sleeper for fantasy owners in the middle rounds on draft day.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles meets with Julius Thomas

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:53:34 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said he met with TE Julius Thomas multiple times this offseason because he wants the same chemistry with Thomas that he had last year. "We had a chance this offseason to sit down multiple times, watch film and talk about things," Bortles said. "Talk about what he wanted from me and what I wanted from him and how we can quickly get on the same page to grow together."

Fantasy Tip: Bortles is coming off a solid 2015 season and will have plenty of weapons to work with this upcoming season. Thomas missed four games because of injury but was still able to record 455 yards and five touchdowns. Bortles should be considered a starting candidate in most leagues, while Thomas could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some deeper leagues.

Jaguars | Bigger role for Julius Thomas?

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 21:19:17 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is the best pass-catching tight end in the NFL, according to WR Allen Robinson, and QB Blake Bortles expects to have better chemistry with Thomas in their second year together.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas showed flashes of his upside down the stretch last season, and if he can stay healthy, which is no guarantee, he should be a top-five fantasy tight end.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas wraps up mediocre year

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 18:30:05 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas posted two receptions for just 12 yards in the Week 17 game against the Houston Texans. He was targeted six times.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas struggled in his first season in Jacksonville, starting out with a hamstring injury and never emerging as a week-to-week fantasy option once he was healthy. He finished with 46 receptions, 454 yards and five touchdowns, with one 100-yard game back on Nov. 29 against the San Diego Chargers. Outside of his four-game touchdown streak from Nov. 19-Dec. 13, he was mostly a fantasy disappointment. That bodes well for savvy fantasy owners in 2016, as he could slide on draft day and re-emerge as a big-time value as long as he can stay healthy. That has been a big 'if' in his career to date.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas leaves early

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 11:25:09 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (arm) is questionable to return in Week 17 with an arm injury.

Fantasy Tip: Marcedes Lewis is the next man up as long as Thomas is out. Clay Harbor could also see some action, but don't expect either of them to see many targets.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas has quiet game

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 19:05:57 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas finished with two catches for 12 yards in a 38-27 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has been playing well in recent weeks, but he is still the No. 3 option in the passing game behind Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles has four second-half scores

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 14:38:49 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles passed for three touchdowns and ran for a fourth score Sunday, Dec. 13, as the Jaguars beat the Indianapolis Colts 51-16. Bortles threw for 250 yards on 16 of 30 passing and threw TDs to WR Allen Hurns, WR Allen Robinson and TE Julius Thomas.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) played perhaps his best game in his short Jaguars career. Bortles is actually a decent FantasyScore pickup and the Jaguars are no longer the league's bottom feeder.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas heavily involved

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 09:36:18 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas has been targeted 18 times and has caught 14 of those targets for 144 yards and two touchdowns in the last two weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Now fully healthy, Thomas ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has become one of Blake Bortles' favorite targets behind Allen Robinson. With Allen Hurns (concussion) out this week, Thomas is a great value pick at the position. The Tennessee Titans are a top-10 fantasy matchup for tight ends this season.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas breaks out

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 18:04:26 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas finished with nine catches for 116 yards and a touchdown in a 31-25 loss to the San Diego Chargers in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas had by far his best game of the season, and with 14 catches the last two games, his role in the offense appears to be growing and his fantasy value is on the rise.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas looks sluggish

Fri, 20 Nov 2015 09:33:22 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas was able to find the end zone in a win over the Tennessee Titans Thursday, Nov. 19, but he has looked sluggish since returning from his fractured hand in mid-October.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas had five catches for just 28 yards and the score on Thursday night. Without the touchdown, he would've been yet again a disappointment to his fantasy owners. The Jags have plenty of other playmakers in the aerial game, so Thomas won't always be the focal point, even in the red zone. Right now he's a TE2 with upside in an improving offense.
