|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.

Gus Bradley: Healthy starters will play in season finale

|Jags HC Gus Bradley said this week he wasn’t inclined to sit healthy players against the Texans. Any lineup changes would be based on giving the Jaguars the best chance to beat Houston.
T.J. Yeldon is doubtful and unlikely to see action, but there are four players that it would make sense to sit down in the finale or at least reduce their snaps: receivers Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns, tight end Julius Thomas and cornerback Davon House. (Jacksonville.com)|
FFToday's Take: “My mindset is that if the guys are healthy and they can go, we talk about always compete, so let’s compete,” Bradley said.
Follow the injury report closely if you've got some relevant Jaguars, but don't be afraid to run out Blake Bortles and other top guys like Allen Robinson and Denard Robinson.

FFToday's Take: Hurns was taken off the field last week on a stretcher and later diagnosed with a concussion. He's a longshot to play against the Titans in Week 13, leaving Allen Robinson and TE Julius Thomas as the main targets for Blake Bortles.
