Julius Thomas: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Thomas caught six of nine targets for a team-high 79 receiving yards in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The big tight end has developed a nice rapport with Blake Bortles since missing the first portion of the season, with at least 79 yards or a touchdown in each of the last five games. Thomas failed to score for the first time in that span, and should remain a popular target for Bortles, especially in the red zone. He is primed for another strong showing versus the Saints next week.
Thomas caught five passes on seven targets -- both team-highs -- for 54 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Colts.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

In his third year in the league last season, Thomas finally realized the massive playmaking potential his exceptional athletic skills held. At 6-5, 250, with 4.6 speed and a 35.5-inch vertical, the former college basketball player was virtually uncoverable. He caught 72.2 percent of his passes, third among qualified tight ends, and gained 400 yards after the catch (fourth). The Broncos used him all over the field, running fade routes lined up wide, crossing routes out of the slot, seam routes from in tight. Playing with the best wideout group in the game often assured Thomas of single coverage, which he exploited for 12.1 yards per catch and 8.8 yards per target. And playing in the best passing offense of all time last season, with Peyton Manning, assured Thomas of plenty of opportunities despite being the fourth receiving option. In the red zone, he caught an impressive 14-of-17 passes for eight touchdowns; inside the 10-yard line, he caught 5-of-6 for five scores. He could see even more work near the goal-line this season, as Eric Decker, who had 23 red-zone targets, left for the Jets. The only worry with Thomas is health. He missed two games last year with knee and ankle injuries and totaled just nine games the previous two years combined.

2013

The former college basketball player is an athletic freak but with Jacob Tamme and Joel Dreessen, not to mention Virgil Green, ahead of him on the depth chart, Thomas' fantasy potential remains quite limited.

2012

Thomas has failed to break through as a consistent player for the Broncos, battling injuries and better players above him on the depth chart. With Jacob Tamme and Joel Dreessen on the roster now, the latter doesn't figure to change, leaving Thomas with minimal opportunities to make an impact.

2011

A fourth-round draft pick, Thomas finds himself on a Broncos team in need of tight-end production. He played four years of basketball at Portland State before walking onto the football team, but the Broncos believe he has the most long-term upside of their tight-end options. While he needs to improve his blocking at the line he has enough speed to stretch defenses and a good set of hands to make catches in traffic. Dan Gronkowski is more adept at blocking than receiving, so Thomas has a shot to earn targets in the passing game.
