|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.

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)|
FFToday'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

FFToday'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|
By: Jake Gordon | 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
FFToday'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.
