Jaguars | Branden Albert visiting Jaguars

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 05:41:12 -0800

Miami Dolphins OT Branden Albert is visiting the Jacksonville Jaguars Monday, Feb. 20, to help facilitate a trade involving TE Julius Thomas. The trade would likely happen if both players agree to new deals. Thomas may need to take a small pay cut, and Albert could receive a bonus.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas' fantasy value could rejuvenate, but he has to stay on the field. He's a TE2 in fantasy at this point.

Dolphins | Miami still pursuing Julius Thomas

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 16:20:06 -0800

Miami Dolphins OT Branden Albert could be traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for TE Julius Thomas, according to league sources, and Albert said he wouldn't "ruffle feathers" if he was traded.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas was underutilized in Jacksonville, and he has battled injuries throughout his career. However, he also has a couple of strong years under his belt. He is worth grabbing as a TE2 in 2017 in case he returns to form.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas an option for Miami?

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 11:51:41 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas could be included in a trade that would send Miami Dolphins OT Branden Albert to the Jaguars, in the opinion of The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. Head coach Adam Gase coached Thomas when they were both with the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is a solid contributor when he is healthy but has been limited to 21 games over the last two years because of injuries. He probably would be the starting tight end if he joined the Dolphins but would be a risky option for fantasy owners. He probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end next season.

Jaguars | No bonus for Julius Thomas this week

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 14:34:57 -0800

Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is not scheduled to receive a roster bonus this week but is scheduled to receive a $3 million bonus Thursday, March 9, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Earlier reports indicated that Thomas was going to receive a bonus this week, but the Jaguars have a few more weeks to make a decision on Thomas. He has played well when he is healthy but has missed 11 games since signing with the Jaguars. Thomas should be considered a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues next season because of his injury history.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas due large guarantee

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 10:29:58 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas' contract calls for $3 million of his $7 million base salary for 2017 to become fully guaranteed at the end of the day Friday, Feb. 10, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: This obviously means if the Jaguars are going to part ways with Thomas this offseason, today would be a good day to make it happen. Jacksonville doesn't really need the cap space, but Thomas has been something of an injury-riddled disappointment in two years with the Jags. Ben Koyack flashed some potential throughout the season and could emerge as a serviceable fantasy TE2 in 2017 if Thomas is cut.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas struggles with injuries

Mon, 06 Feb 2017 15:32:22 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas has missed 11 of 32 games since signing with the Jaguars because of various injuries but has caught nine touchdowns during those games. His $7 million salary for 2017 will be guaranteed if he is on the roster March 13.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has not played a full season since he entered the league and was limited to nine games in 2016. He has been productive when he has been on the field, but he could be released this offseason because of his injury history. He will be a risky option for fantasy owners no matter where he plays and probably should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end.

Jaguars | Jaguars expected to cut Julius Thomas

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 19:40:25 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is expected to be released by the team this offseason, according to ESPN's Mike DiRocco. He has the fourth-highest cap figure ($8.3 million) in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has been mostly a bust since signing with the Jags in 2015, after putting up some impressive numbers during his tenure in Denver. It hasn't all been his fault, though, as the former Bronco has missed 11 games over two seasons with the club thanks to injury, and Jacksonville has him run a lot of short routes when he's more successful down the field and on seam routes. He needs a change of scenery to regain his TE1 status.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas injury update

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 08:13:02 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (tailbone) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list last week because of a fractured tailbone, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Thomas will stay with the Jaguars next season, but he probably will start with someone in 2017. He has struggled with injuries throughout his career and should only be a No. 2 tight end in leagues next season.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas done in Jacksonville?

Sat, 10 Dec 2016 17:28:52 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (back) will end up missing 11 games in two years with the team after being placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 10, and he could be released after the season, according to beat writer Mike DiRocco.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has been a huge disappointment for Jacksonville, and injuries continue to derail his career. He has shown he can be a TE1 in the right system, but he won't be worth drafting in most leagues next year if he ends up back in Jacksonville.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas placed on IR

Sat, 10 Dec 2016 12:30:47 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (back) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Ben Koyack and Neal Sterling probably will share playing time at tight end but neither player should be a starting option in any fantasy leagues.
