Dolphins | Julius Thomas expendable due to blocking woes

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 11:45:21 -0800

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas wore out his welcome with the Jacksonville Jaguars in part due to his limitations as a blocker, according to a source, which called Thomas' blocking "non-existent".

Fantasy Tip: A former college basketball player, Thomas has never been a great blocker, so his struggles in that facet of the game certainly shouldn't have come as a surprise to the Jaguars, who will officially deal him to the Dolphins at the start of the new league year on March 9. Miami head coach Adam Gase was Thomas' offensive coordinator during his best years with the Denver Broncos and should be able to help his pupil climb back to low-end TE1 status in fantasy.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas passes physical

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 06:00:24 -0800

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas passed his physical with the club Tuesday, Feb. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas will be in a familiar system he thrived in with the Denver Broncos, and he has a quarterback that has a knack of throwing to tight ends. It could be a great spot for him if he can stay healthy. He's a bounce-back pick as a TE2.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas wanted to reunite with old OC

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 20:09:29 -0800

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas restructured his contract in order to land with the Dolphins because he wanted to reunite with head coach Adam Gase, who was his old offensive coordinator with the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: It makes sense, as Gase runs the same system in Miami that he did in Denver, where Thomas absolutely thrived during his final two years with the club. In fact, the 28-year-old produced consecutive 12-touchdown campaigns with the Broncos, before disappointing greatly as a member of the Jaguars, with whom he scored a total of just nine touchdowns in 21 contests. As long as he can stay healthy, an extra-motivated Thomas could be a terrific value pick at the end of drafts next season.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas reworks deal

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 15:46:28 -0800

Miami Dolphins impending TE Julius Thomas agreed to restructure his contract as part of his trade from the Jacksonville Jaguars to the Dolphins, according to a source. Thomas was scheduled to count $8.3 million against the salary cap in 2017, $9.8 million in 2018 and $10.3 million in 2019 before the restructuring.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has had success in an Adam Gase offense when he played for the Denver Broncos and should have a solid role in the Dolphins passing game if he can stay healthy. Thomas has the ability of be a No. 1 fantasy tight end, but owners may want to consider him a better No. 2 tight end because of his injury history.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas being sent to Miami

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 14:24:50 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is being traded to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a late-round 2017 draft pick Monday, Feb. 20.

Fantasy Tip: The departure of Thomas means Marcedes Lewis and Ben Koyacek are likely the top candidates to take over the starting job, at least for now. The Jaguars could obviously add a tight end via free agency or the NFL Draft. If nothing changes, neither Lewis nor Koyacek should be drafted as TE1s.

Dolphins | Miami acquiring Julius Thomas

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 14:16:07 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is being acquired by the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a late-round 2017 draft pick Monday, Feb. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has really come down to earth after two 12-touchdown seasons with the Denver Broncos. Injuries have plagued him throughout his career, too. The Dolphins are hoping for the Thomas of old with this trade, and he could be a valuable receiving threat, particularly in the red zone. That being said, expectations should be tempered. It's safer to draft Thomas as a backup fantasy tight end after he missed seven games last season.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas not headed to Miami?

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 09:38:15 -0800

Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is no longer a part of the trade package designed to acquire Miami Dolphins OT Branden Albert.

Fantasy Tip: There could be any number of reasons for this development, although the most likely are the Jaguars got cold feet or reasoned Thomas was worth more than the late-round pick they are reportedly giving up now to get Albert. Although a trade has reportedly been agreed to, expect more updates in the hours and days ahead before the trade can be officially consummated. If Thomas remains in Jacksonville, he's a high-end TE2 at best.

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.
