Dolphins | Julius Thomas makes it two in a row with TD

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 21:37:25 -0800

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas scored a touchdown for the second straight week -- after having none previously in the first seven games -- in the team's Week 10 loss Monday, Nov. 13, versus the Carolina Panthers. He finished the game with two catches for eight yards on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: Although his stats outside of the touchdown were not pretty, it's still encouraging that Thomas has garnered five or more targets in consecutive games for the first time all season. Clearly, Jay Cutler is looking his way more, and that could vault Thomas back onto the TE1 radar. However, given how disappointing he was prior to the last two weeks, he's still mainly a streaming option in standard formats for now.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas gains two yards

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 21:40:56 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas caught two passes for two yards in Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Any hopes that were raised by Thomas' 58-yard output in Week 7 were dashed just as quickly Thursday night. During the broadcast Tony Romo noted the team preferred Anthony Fasano on the field for his attention to detail, which isn't good news for Thomas' long-term prospects, either. He's probably not worth owning outside of larger leagues.

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

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.
