| Jags TE Julius Thomas practices in full -- Wed Oct 21 4:08 pm --|
Yeldon and Hurns miss practice
|Running back T.J. Yeldon did not practice Wednesday as the Jaguars begin preparing for Sunday's game against Buffalo in London's Wembley Stadium. Strong safety Johnathan Cyprien (calf) also did not practice, as well as receiver Allen Hurns (thigh), receiver Marqise Lee (hamstring), free safety James Sample (shoulder) and defensive end Chris Clemons (rest). Receiver Allen Robinson (lower leg contusion) practiced Wednesday in limited fashion. Tight end Julius Thomas (rib contusion) was a full participant. (Jacksonville.com)|
FF Today's Take: Jacksonville's offense is a little banged up heading into Week 7. The status of both starting receivers is up in the air. Coming off a twelve-target game in Week 6, Bryan Walters would be a flex option in deeper leagues if Allen Robinson or Allen Hurns is unable to suit up against the Bills. The rib injury Julius Thomas sustained a week ago is a non-issue for fantasy owners. He should be in line for an increased role in the passing game and is a must start for Week 7. Meanwhile, rookie RB T.Y. Yeldon is likely going to miss his second week with a groin injury. Unfortunately, Toby Gerhart and Denard Robinson do not offer much fantasy upside as long as they are splitting the workload.

Won't be limited

FF Today's Take: Thomas was expected to sit today so this news is somewhat of a surprise. Thomas is a reasonable low TE1 option even though the Buccaneers have given up the fifth fewest fantasy points to tight ends.
| TE Julius Thomas cleared for practice -- Wed Sep 16 7:12 pm --|
|JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Julius Thomas has been cleared for limited practice. He still won't play for at least a few more weeks.
Thomas was on the field Wednesday for the first time since breaking a bone on the back of his right hand in the preseason opener Aug. 14
FF Today's Take: Fantasy owners are still waiting to see how productive Julius Thomas can be in Jacksonville's improving offense. He's still a few weeks away from returning to the field but should be a top twelve fantasy tight end most weeks when he returns.
| Julius Thomas likely to undergo finger surgery -- Mon Aug 31 6:45 pm --|
Jags hopeful he can return by Week 4
|Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is considering having surgery on his finger, a procedure that would sideline the two-time Pro Bowler for at least four weeks. GM David Caldwell confirmed Monday that Thomas, the team's top free-agent acquisition this past offseason, will receive a second medical opinion Tuesday before deciding whether to undergo the surgery.
A source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Thomas is expected to undergo the surgery. Thomas was injured in Jacksonville's preseason opener earlier this month, but the Jaguars expected him to be ready for their regular-season opener. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: It took Thomas exactly one quarter of one game into his new contract to live up to his injury-prone tag. Florida Times-Union beat writer Ryan O'Halloran tweeted that a "realistic" return date would be Week 4 against the Colts. In the meantime, owners should expect a plethora of targets for Allen Robinson, a few more for Allen Hurns as well as a fair amount of snaps for Marcedes Lewis and Clay Harbor.
