Jaguars | Jaguars gunning for Julius Thomas?

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 18:44:28 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas will be pursued aggressively by the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.

Fantasy Tip: The Jaguars need a red zone target for Blake Bortles, and if he ends up in Jacksonville, he should see enough looks to retain his TE1 status, even if his overall numbers decline a bit from the past couple of seasons.

Raiders | Raiders interested in Julius Thomas?

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 18:38:59 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas is drawing interest from the Oakland Raiders, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: If Thomas lands in Oakland, he would immediately become one of Derrick Carr's top targets, especially in the red zone. He probably won't put up the numbers he did in Denver, but Thomas should still be considered a TE1 as long as he remains healthy.

Broncos | Julius Thomas helped in red zone

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 15:21:46 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas could very well be on his way out of Denver this offseason, which would leave a big void for Denver, especially in the red zone. Before Thomas was injured last season, he led the NFL in red zone touchdowns with nine. He was second in the league with a 77 percent touchdown rate in the red zone. Following the injury, the Broncos ended the regular season with a 62 percent touchdown frequency in the red zone.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas will certainly be missed if he does leave Denver, which seems likely. He'll be a big red zone threat no matter who he plays for in 2015 and should retain TE1 status barring any health setbacks this offseason.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas drawing interest in JAX

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 07:01:44 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas is drawing interest from the Jacksonville Jaguars if he reaches free agency.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas' fantasy value would take a sharp hit shifting from one of the best offenses in the league to one of the worst. Regardless of where he lands, he'll be in the top tier of tight ends taken in traditional drafts.

Broncos | Julius Thomas likely leaving Denver?

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 15:20:46 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas is unlikely to be re-signed by the team, as his market value will likely exceed what the Broncos are willing to pay. The Broncos tried to sign Thomas to a five-year, $40 million extension last summer, but he wasn't comfortable with the guaranteed money and structuring.

Fantasy Tip: It'll be interesting to see where Thomas lands if he bolts Denver. Not having Peyton Manning throwing to him could negatively affect his value, which is heavily dependent on touchdowns. Be careful not to overvalue Thomas in this year's drafts if he leaves. If Thomas does leave Denver, Virgil Green will be more heavily involved, as would Jacob Tamme, if they both re-sign. Green is more important to the running game, though. Tamme could be worth a flier as a backup tight end if Manning returns.

Falcons | ATL has interest in Julius Thomas

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 04:12:40 -0800

Free-agent TE Julius Thomas (Broncos) has some likely interest from the Atlanta Falcons, who are looking for an upgrade at the spot this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas only had 489 yards receiving a year ago but he scored 12 touchdowns. There is no question Thomas is one of the top TE threats out there, and he figures to get a ton of free agent interest. Thomas is a strong TE1 option.

Broncos | Denver has no meetings with Julius Thomas

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 16:19:07 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas and his agent, Frank Bauer, don't have any meetings scheduled with the team heading into the NFL Scouting Combine. Apparently Thomas wants to test the free-agent markets when he's eligible March 10.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas might wind up signing a contract extension with the Broncos after he tests the free-agent waters. After all, it might not get better than having Peyton Manning throwing you passes, if Manning in fact returns. Even if Thomas leaves Denver, he should be considered in the top tier (or very near it) of tight ends. Be careful not to overspend in drafts, though, if he enters a less favorable offensive situation on the open market.

Broncos | Long-term deal for Julius Thomas?

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 15:31:50 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas is more likely to receive a long-term deal before the start of free agency March 10 than impending free-agent WR Demaryius Thomas, who is a candidate for the franchise tag. Julius Thomas wants to be compensated as one of the best at his position after becoming the first tight end in history with at least 12 touchdowns in back-to-back seasons.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is among the better tight end talents for fantasy football owners. If he remains in Denver with Peyton Manning likely returning for another year, he should once again be among the elite tight ends. However, be careful not to overspend for him, as his TDs carry his fantasy value.

Broncos | Julius Thomas looking to get paid

Thu, 12 Feb 2015 06:42:03 -0800

Free-agent TE Julius Thomas' (Broncos) agent has made it clear to the Denver Broncos that Thomas is looking to be among the highest-paid tight ends in the league.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas certainly played like he should be among the richer tight ends last season, but ankle woes have hindered him the last two seasons. He's likely to be among the top three tight ends off the board in traditional drafts.

Broncos | Julius Thomas talks future

Fri, 30 Jan 2015 17:50:30 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas discussed with Woody Paige and Les Shapiro on The Sports Show Friday, Jan. 30, the chances of him returning to the Broncos. "I really don't know. To be perfectly honest, it hasn't even been discussed for me yet," Thomas said. He did go on to say he'd love to come back, but he mentioned there are several important factors when determining where he'll sign.

Fantasy Tip: Until we know where Thomas signs, his value remains up in the air for the 2015 fantasy football season.
