Jaguars | Julius Thomas not practicing

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 08:57:16 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (knee) is not participating in practice Saturday, Aug. 13.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Thomas' injury is not known at this point, so owners should look for a possible update on the injury. He is expected to be a solid contributor in the passing game this season and can be a No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas practices Wednesday

Wed, 03 Aug 2016 11:58:58 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (ankle) participated in practice Wednesday, Aug. 3, despite suffering an ankle injury during practice Tuesday, Aug. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas appears to be fine and likely will receive plenty of targets in 2016. He is a bit of a risky option for owners since he has dealt with injuries over the past few seasons, but Thomas can be a No. 1 tight end in most leagues.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas dominant in OTAs

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 16:55:31 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas has looked unstoppable in OTAs, according to beat writer Hays Carlyon.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas started to click with Blake Bortles late in the year, catching four of his five touchdowns in the final seven games. He should be a major factor in the red zone in 2016 and could easily finish as a TE1.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas busy at OTAs

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 19:52:37 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas' situation is much more stable this season, as he and QB Blake Bortles are building rapport during the offseason program. "Julius looks good," offensive coordinator Greg Olson said Monday, June 6. "Guys that have been here have been relatively healthy and Julius has been one of those guys, so he's been able to get a lot of reps and a lot of work in so far."

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has posted 29 touchdowns over the past three seasons, which is even more than Seattle's Jimmy Graham and New England's Rob Gronkowski during the same span. If Thomas can stay healthy he is a tremendous sleeper for fantasy owners in the middle rounds on draft day.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles meets with Julius Thomas

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:53:34 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said he met with TE Julius Thomas multiple times this offseason because he wants the same chemistry with Thomas that he had last year. "We had a chance this offseason to sit down multiple times, watch film and talk about things," Bortles said. "Talk about what he wanted from me and what I wanted from him and how we can quickly get on the same page to grow together."

Fantasy Tip: Bortles is coming off a solid 2015 season and will have plenty of weapons to work with this upcoming season. Thomas missed four games because of injury but was still able to record 455 yards and five touchdowns. Bortles should be considered a starting candidate in most leagues, while Thomas could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some deeper leagues.

Jaguars | Bigger role for Julius Thomas?

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 21:19:17 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is the best pass-catching tight end in the NFL, according to WR Allen Robinson, and QB Blake Bortles expects to have better chemistry with Thomas in their second year together.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas showed flashes of his upside down the stretch last season, and if he can stay healthy, which is no guarantee, he should be a top-five fantasy tight end.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas wraps up mediocre year

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 18:30:05 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas posted two receptions for just 12 yards in the Week 17 game against the Houston Texans. He was targeted six times.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas struggled in his first season in Jacksonville, starting out with a hamstring injury and never emerging as a week-to-week fantasy option once he was healthy. He finished with 46 receptions, 454 yards and five touchdowns, with one 100-yard game back on Nov. 29 against the San Diego Chargers. Outside of his four-game touchdown streak from Nov. 19-Dec. 13, he was mostly a fantasy disappointment. That bodes well for savvy fantasy owners in 2016, as he could slide on draft day and re-emerge as a big-time value as long as he can stay healthy. That has been a big 'if' in his career to date.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas leaves early

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 11:25:09 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (arm) is questionable to return in Week 17 with an arm injury.

Fantasy Tip: Marcedes Lewis is the next man up as long as Thomas is out. Clay Harbor could also see some action, but don't expect either of them to see many targets.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas has quiet game

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 19:05:57 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas finished with two catches for 12 yards in a 38-27 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has been playing well in recent weeks, but he is still the No. 3 option in the passing game behind Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles has four second-half scores

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 14:38:49 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles passed for three touchdowns and ran for a fourth score Sunday, Dec. 13, as the Jaguars beat the Indianapolis Colts 51-16. Bortles threw for 250 yards on 16 of 30 passing and threw TDs to WR Allen Hurns, WR Allen Robinson and TE Julius Thomas.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) played perhaps his best game in his short Jaguars career. Bortles is actually a decent FantasyScore pickup and the Jaguars are no longer the league's bottom feeder.
