|Julius Thomas never got going last year after a broken hand during the preseason play cost him the first four weeks of the regular season. He was still able to collect 80 targets on the year and had a better second half of the season. QB Blake Bortles met with Thomas over the off-season to try and figure out a way to get on the same page with his huge six-foot five-inch tight end. The injury risk and a deep tight end pool will still push Thomas towards the third wave of tight ends selected on draft day. Nonetheless, his prowess near the goal combined with a proactive approach by his quarterback to get him involved will have plenty of fantasy owners giving him a mulligan for a dismal 2015 campaign. Early reports form OTAs have already started to refuel the hype surrounding him and a healthy preseason should result in his ADP rising over the next few weeks. Marcedes Lewis re-upped with the team and will serve as Thomas’ backup. Lewis’ fantasy value is dormant after failing to catch at least 20 passes in each of the past two years.

Jags TE looking like a safe bet for Week 6

|Per a report out of Jacksonville, Defensive end Jared Odrick (triceps), tight end Julius Thomas (elbow) and linebacker Dan Skuta (hip) all returned to practice on Monday. (Florida Times-Union)|
FFToday's Take: It appears that the Jags took advantage of teh week off to get some players healthy. Thomas will be ready to roll as a TE1 this week against the Bears.

|Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is out today vs Colts due to elbow injury, per source. Marcedes Lewis expected to start. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Thomas made the trip to London but unfortunately won't be available in Week 3. Lewis is a TE2. Better options for Thomas owners include Hunter Henry, Zach Miller, Jacob Tamme and Jack Doyle.
| Julius Thomas a gametime decision|

|Limited practice today and questionable for Sunday: Tight end Julius Thomas (elbow) and linebacker Dan Skuta (hip).
“Those guys will be game-time decisions,” coach Gus Bradley said. If Thomas is inactive, the Jaguars would have only two healthy tight ends: Marcedes Lewis and Neal Sterling (Florida Times Union)|
FFToday's Take: Thomas did make the trip to London so it's likely he is true gametime decision. He'll be a low-end TE1 option against the Colts defense if he's able to suit up.
