2015 Outlook

Emerging onto the scene in Denver as a true difference maker, Julius Thomas was signed to be a key weapon in the new Jags attack. The former Bronco will have an immediate impact in the red zone but his intangibles are perhaps of greater importance on a team that hasn’t won too many football games in recent years. Thomas’ fantasy stock takes a hit moving on from Peyton Manning who helped Thomas reach double-digit touchdowns in each of the past two seasons. This prowess near the goal should translate into optimal red zone targets even with the change of scenery. At only 26 years of age, Julius also carries some injury risk having dealt with ankle and knee injuries in the past. As the focal point of an offense destined to improve, Thomas’ fantasy stock shouldn’t be discounted too heavily with Bortles as his quarterback. Longtime Jag Mercedes Lewis and veteran Clay Harbor do not offer much fantasy appeal but should see time in running situations.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Julius Thomas likely to undergo finger surgery
Jags hopeful he can return by Week 4
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 31, 6:45 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
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)

FFToday'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.


Injury Julius Thomas expected back for season opener
Broken hand; out for the rest of the preseason

TE Julius Thomas (hand) and S Johnathan Cyprien (finger) wore balky casts over their right hands while watching practice. Both were injured Friday against Pittsburgh and are out for the preseason. Dr. Steven Shin, Director of Hand Surgery at Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedic Clinic in Los Angeles, said the area of Thomas’ injury - top of the hand and below the knuckle - will speed up his recovery. Shin said Thomas shouldn’t have to wear any heavy protection on the hand when he returns to the field save for a small pad. (Florida Times Union)

FFToday's Take: Times Union beat writer Ryan O'Halloran called Thomas "the best player on the team, period" in early August, but injuries have dogged the ex-Bronco for most of his NFL career. His fantasy value obviously depends on whether or not he can shed his injury-prone label and whether or not Jacksonville can find the red zone at a much higher rate than it has in recent seasons. His late-seventh round ADP is his ceiling and there is a very good chance he fails to live up to it.


Injury Julius Thomas has "stable fracture" in hand
Expected to be back for Week 1
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Aug 15, 6:32 am

Jacksonville Jaguars
Jags' HC Gus Bradley said TE Julius Thomas has "stable fracture" in back of his hand, will miss preseason but should be back for opener. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Thomas is an injury risk for fantasy owners and on the second offensive snap of the game, the risk became reality. He's been overvalued this entire off-season because of his high TD totals in Denver but won't have the same offensive luxury in Jacksonville. Let others gamble on Thomas in your draft.
