Dolphins | Julius Thomas finishes with 58 yards

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 18:27:17 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas managed three catches for 58 yards on four targets in Week 7 against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas heads into Week 8 against the Ravens still searching for his first touchdown of the season. He remains more of a TE2 fantasy option despite the season high in yardage.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas posts 29 yards

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 09:56:10 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas caught two passes for 29 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas was expected to have success in the offense since he has played for Adam Gase before, but he only has eight receptions and 71 yards in the first three games. Thomas can be owned in deeper leagues but should not be in the starting lineup next week.

Dolphins | Miami hoping to get Julius Thomas involved

Sat, 30 Sep 2017 08:27:53 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas has yet to add the spark over the middle of the field, but head coach Adam Gase puts the blame on his offense for failing to get defenses to get out of zone coverage. "We haven't gotten the coverages that make (Thomas) a difference maker. When you flex him out and you put a safety or linebacker on him, that's an advantage for us. But we really haven't seen that," Gase said.

Fantasy Tip: Gase's explanation makes sense, as he seems to be putting the onus on his receivers for failing to make defenses pay for playing too much zone. This also has an negative impact for Jay Ajayi as well since defenses can load the box and all 11 defenders can keep their eye on Ajayi. Gase will likely get it worked out soon, but Thomas is a low-end TE2 in fantasy until he is able to show something.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas improving chemistry

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 11:11:52 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas has improved his chemistry with QB Jay Cutler over the last few weeks and has caught several touchdowns during practice.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has been a productive player when he has been on the field but has dealt with injuries that have hurt his value over the years. It appears like he will have a big role in the red zone this season and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end because of his touchdown potential.

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 06:39:48 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas (back) is out of practice Monday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: The oft-injured tight end could still be a useful backup in fantasy, but his ceiling is pretty low compared to where it once was.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas struggling

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 20:23:15 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas has been a non-factor in practices and appears to have chemistry issues with QB Ryan Tannehill, according to Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel.

Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins are hoping that Thomas can be the weapon he was in Denver and not the bust he was in Jacksonville, but the early returns don't sound encouraging. You can stash him as a TE2 in case he returns to form, but don't count on him being a fantasy starter.

Dolphins | OC optimistic about Julius Thomas

Wed, 07 Jun 2017 11:52:12 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas has the chance to be a 10-touchdoown player if he can stay healthy, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has played well when he is healthy, but the problem is that he has not played more than 14 games in any season since entering the NFL. He should have a solid role in the passing game this upcoming season and probably should be considered as a No. 2 fantasy tight end because of his injury history.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas to be heavily involved?

Tue, 06 Jun 2017 11:57:42 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas is going to be a big part of the Dolphins' offensive plans in 2017, according to QB Matt Moore.

Fantasy Tip: A big reason for the excitement surrounding Thomas is that he is reunited with Adam Gase. Thomas easily produced the best football of his career in Denver when Gase was the Broncos' offensive coordinator. Healthy has been an issue for Thomas, though. If he can stay on the field he has TE1 upside, but he's better drafted as a TE2.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas poised for big year

Wed, 31 May 2017 10:36:30 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas is "going to be a thing this year" if he stays healthy, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero, who reports the team has drawn up multiple plays just for him.

Fantasy Tip: The unofficial start date of Thomas' hype train began the day he was traded to Miami to reunite with Dolphins head coach Adam Gase, who ran the offense in Denver when the former basketball player tallied 24 touchdowns in 27 games from 2013-14. Thomas' biggest hurdle for most of his career has been durability, so he stands a great chance of returning to the TE1 ranks if he can stay healthy in an offense that will make sure he is an important weapon in the red zone.
