Summary

When head coach Adam Gase and Julius Thomas parted ways in Denver, both seems the worse for it. Gase lacked a tight end who could do what he wanted in an offense, while Thomas ended up in Jacksonville which never seemed able to utilize his abilities to their fullest. Thomas scored a whopping nine touchdowns with the Jaguars, compared to 24 in two years with the Denver Broncos. While we don't expect fireworks quite like that in year one with Miami - especially without Peyton Manning throwing him the ball - but we do see significant red zone targets for him in this offense and perhaps a very good season of production in his role with the Dolphins.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas working on chemistry with QB (Fri May 26, 06:34 PM) - Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas' chemistry with QB Ryan Tannehill appears to be a work in progress at this point during offseason workouts, in the opinion of The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson.

Our View: Thomas is back in the Adam Gase offense where he was a star (and fantasy beast) with the Broncos. His role is clear, and Thomas should provide a big upgrade for the Dolphins at the position as he's a red-zone weapon when healthy. Thomas has never played a full 16-game schedule as a pro, so fantasy owners need to proceed with caution when considering him. The risk is cooked into his current ADP (TE19, 13.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.
