Jaguars | Jags looking for 1,000-yard receiver

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 14:03:19 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars WRs Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee will be looking to give the team their first 1,000-yard receiver since 2005. TE Julius Thomas is expected to be a focal point in the passing game, but there have only been 35 cases of a tight end reaching that goal in NFL history.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas and Robinson ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) likely will have the most value among the team's receivers this season. Both players could be middle-round options in drafts, while Hurns ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) and Lee ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) could be options in the late rounds. Thomas will miss the first few weeks of the season because of a finger injury.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas to have surgery

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 14:18:57 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (finger) will undergo surgery on his injured finger Wednesday, Sept. 2, according to a source. Thomas is expected to miss four to five weeks.

Fantasy Tip: This injury puts Thomas into low-end TE1 or high-end TE2 territory. Marcedes Lewis and Clay Harbor will take over the reins at tight end, with Lewis holding more fantasy value. Lewis might be a good option on FantasyScore to start the season, but he's not worth drafting in seasonal leagues.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas expected to miss 4-5 weeks

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:30:22 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (finger) is expected to need surgery on a tendon in his finger and is expected to be out four to five weeks, according to a source. Thomas will receive a second opinion on his finger Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas suffered an injury in the first preseason game and will miss more time if he needs surgery. Thomas could still be a No. 1 tight end when he returns, but owners will need a strong backup that can fill in while Thomas is out. Marcedes Lewis likely will start with Thomas out but is not a great fantasy option. Clay Harbor could also see an expanded role but probably should be avoided by owners.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas actually injured right hand

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 05:27:05 -0700

Correcting a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (hand) injured his right hand, and not his left, the team announced Saturday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas was already setting up to witness a decline in production with his relocation to Jacksonville. However, he'll also now miss valuable practice time with his new team and in a new offense. It shouldn't be viewed as a serious setback, and Thomas is expected to be ready for Week 1. Still, his fantasy stock is losing serious helium, and it is extremely risky to view Thomas as a weekly staple in your lineup.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas has fractured hand

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 20:39:39 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (hand) has a stable fracture on the back of his left hand, and head coach Gus Bradley said he hopes to have Thomas back by Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Monitor his status in the coming weeks, but it sounds like Thomas could be back sooner rather than. Continue to draft him as a TE1.

Jaguars | Finger fracture for Julius Thomas

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 19:12:14 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (finger) suffered a "small" finger fracture Friday, Aug. 14, according to a source, and more will be known following a scan Saturday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: A finger fracture isn't a catastrophic injury, but depending on the exact nature of the injury, Thomas could miss some time or at least have some issues catching the ball. Wait for a definite diagnosis, but Thomas should still be viewed as a TE1 for now.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas leaves early

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 16:53:59 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (hand) left the preseason game early Friday, Aug. 14, and is being evaluated for a left hand injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to determine the severity of Thomas' injury. Thomas should see a solid amount of targets this season if he is healthy and could be a starting option against most opponents.
