Broncos | Julius Thomas arrested last week

Thu, 05 Sep 2013 12:02:34 -0700

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas was arrested last week for failing to appear in court stemming from a traffic citation he received. His arrest is not expected to affect his status for Week 1.

Broncos | Joel Dreessen not expected to play

Tue, 03 Sep 2013 11:13:57 -0700

Denver Broncos TE Joel Dreessen (knee) is not expected to play in the team's Week 1 game Thursday, Sept. 5, so TEs Julius Thomas, Jacob Tamme and Virgil Green will play. Thomas is expected to start and see the majority of snaps in single tight end sets, two-back sets or three-wide sets.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is a sneaky waiver-wire addition to fortify the depth of your tight end core before Week 1. Thomas' value will likely be tied to the health of Dreessen all season, but he has more upside in an offense that will be explosive. He should be seen as a TE2 with the talent to perform as a low-end TE1 many weeks.

Broncos | Julius Thomas, Virgil Green have opportunities

Tue, 06 Aug 2013 15:08:24 -0700

Updating a previous item, Denver Broncos TEs Julius Thomas and Virgil Green are getting increased repetitions with the first-team offense in training camp this week with TEs Joel Dreessen (knee) and Jacob Tamme (quadriceps) injured. Thomas was drafted in the fourth round in 2011, compared to the seventh round for Green. Thomas has been playing as a receiving tight end while Green has been playing more at the line of scrimmage. Thomas' blocking has improved since he was drafted, and he started with the No. 1 offense last weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas or Green could start the season seeing significant time alongside Tamme if Dreessen isn't ready for Week 1. However, because of Tamme's receiving experience, neither will likely see enough targets to become fantasy relevant until beyond 2013.
