Dolphins | Julius Thomas working on chemistry with QB

Fri, 26 May 2017 15:34:09 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas' chemistry with QB Ryan Tannehill appears to be a work in progress at this point during offseason workouts, in the opinion of The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas will have training camp and the preseason to build chemistry with Tannehill, so owners should not be worried about the situation. Thomas should be a valuable fantasy option for owners as long as he is healthy and can be a low-end No. 1 option.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas will be used properly

Sat, 06 May 2017 18:31:17 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas is familiar with the offense, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen, and Christensen said head coach Adam Gase knows how to use Thomas "extremely well" from their time together with the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: There is no doubt that Jacksonville badly misused Thomas the last two seasons, but injuries are also a major concern with the tight end. He is worth a look as a low-end TE1, but you will want to have backup plan in place.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas poised for huge year?

Sat, 06 May 2017 10:24:27 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas can add "10, 12 touchdowns" to the Dolphins' offense in 2017, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen.

Fantasy Tip: It's a highly optimistic and, quite likely, unrealistic projection given Thomas' injury history, the fact he isn't playing with Peyton Manning anymore and Miami's focus on running the ball with Jay Ajayi. It is quite likely, however, Thomas does emerge as Ryan Tannehill's favorite red zone target, so he could have low-end TE1 upside.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas feeling good

Sat, 22 Apr 2017 10:55:34 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas told the Florida Times-Union recently this spring "is probably the best I've ever felt" and that head coach Adam Gase's offense "feels a lot like home".

Fantasy Tip: Gase was the offensive coordinator in Denver when Thomas posted back-to-back seasons of 12 receiving touchdowns, so the 28-year-old tight end certainly has reason to be optimistic if he is as healthy as he says he is. With Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills taking defensive attention away from him at receiver, Thomas could be poised for a nice rebound in 2017.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas expected to make difference

Mon, 03 Apr 2017 19:54:59 -0700

Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said TE Julius Thomas is "going to make a little bit of a difference for us." Gase also said he has a "good idea" of what the club wants to do on offense with him.

Fantasy Tip: When Gase and Thomas were together in Denver, the latter was arguably the most productive tight end in all of football, accumulating a whopping 24 touchdowns in 27 games as a starter. By comparison, Thomas didn't even score ten times combined over his two years with the Jaguars, but injuries played a role in that as well. The 28-year-old will have great potential as a sleeper in Miami.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas restructures deal

Sat, 25 Mar 2017 20:00:30 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas restructured his deal, turning his contract into a two-year deal worth $12.2 million with $7.5 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: There are a lot of mouths to feed in Miami's passing attack, and even if he can stay healthy, Thomas will have a tough time being more than a TE2 in 2017.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas finally healthy

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 09:47:18 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas is finally healthy after battling back, finger and ankle injuries. "I don't really have any handicaps, anything that will hold me back," Thomas said. "... I feel really good. I know that I'll be able to play at the highest level I've played in my career."

Fantasy Tip: Reunited with Adam Gase, Thomas hopes to regain some of his glory from the 2013 and '14 seasons in which he scored a total of 24 times. He is too risky for TE1 status, but there is weekly flex consideration and daily gaming worth here. Thomas has to compete with three viable receivers for touches in an offense that figures to run the ball as much as possible to shield Ryan Tannehill.

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.
