Julius Thomas to be used more creatively in 2014-- Thu Jul 3 4:30 pm --
TE not satisfied with stellar breakout season
Julius Thomas won’t allow complacency to seep into his mind after his breakout campaign. As one of Broncos QB Peyton Manning’s favorite targets, he takes pride in learning every facet of the position. Thomas believes another season in second-year OC Adam Gase’s system will equate to more comfort and confidence.
“What I think people will see different in me (this year) is that they will use me a lot more creatively,” Thomas told FOXSports.com. “I think there are a lot of things that our offense wanted to do with me, but you can only learn so much in one year."(Fox Sports)
FF Today's Take:It's a reasonable assumption to make following the departure of Eric Decker. Thomas is not unlike the New Orleans Saints' Jimmy Graham, who spends a lot of his time detached from the offensive line and either in the slot or out wide. Outside of a complete return to health from Rob Gronkowski, Thomas is the best bet to give Graham a run for his money at the top of his position in fantasy.
