2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
The fantasy breakout star of 2013 had to be tight end Julius Thomas, who burst onto the season in Week 1 with a monstrous five catch, 110 yard, two touchdown performance. He didn't look back from there, as Thomas would go on to catch a total of 65 passes for 788 yards and 12 touchdowns on the year. After being a training camp darling in both 2011 and 2012, Thomas finally put that talent to use in 2013 and is now considered one of the elite tight ends as we head into 2014. Peyton Manning has been known to make the careers of wide receivers, but the same could be said for his tremendous success in throwing the ball to tight ends. Thomas is now the beneficiary of that success and there's little reason to believe that he won't be one of the top-scoring players at the position again. If it weren't for a knee injury that kept him out a couple of games and seemed to slow him down a bit in the surrounding games, Thomas could have very well finished close to New Orleans' Jimmy Graham as the top-scoring tight end in all of fantasy football. A natural regression in the touchdown category seems likely, but like Manning and the other players in this offense, even a significant reduction in stats would still mean a big fantasy season for Thomas. He's currently being drafted as a high-third round pick, but Thomas could see that stock rise over the next month, especially if reports continue to be less than stellar regarding Rob Gronkowski's likelihood of playing in Week 1. If Gronkowski is out, look for Thomas to move up a few spots as the tight end position becomes even thinner heading into 2014.

Comment: Now that Decker is gone, Thomas becomes an even bigger focal point for Manning. He's second only to Jimmy Graham among fantasy tight ends.

Julius Thomas to be used more creatively in 2014
TE not satisfied with stellar breakout season
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 3, 4:30 pm

Denver Broncos
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)

FFToday'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.
