Summary

Julius Thomas was the Jaguars big splash in the Free Agency pool this offseason as they continue to add weapons to the offense for QB Blake Bortles. Thomas has caught 24 touchdown passes in 27 games the last two seasons thanks to being a big Redzone target for the one and only Peyton Manning. Now with no Manning anywhere in sight and going to a fantasy wasteland such as Jacksonville, he is going to have to prove that he deserves the big contract and once again be that big Redzone target but this time for 2nd year QB Blake Bortles. The Jaguars are slowly growing their offensive passing game and Julius Thomas could play a big part in that development as he can be a nice outlet for Bortles in the redzone. (May 16)

Jaguars | Marcedes Lewis to see lesser role (Wed Jun 24, 10:42 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis is in what is expected to be his final season with the team, and with TE Julius Thomas now in the mix Lewis should see time as a blocker and less as a pass catcher.

Our View: If Julius Thomas is healthy, that's exactly what is in store for Lewis. While he has had a few moments in the past, Lewis has never been a consistent producer either on the field or in fantasy lineups. Some of that can be laid at the feet of terrible quarterbacks and offenses, he's just not all that good. He won't see enough work to warrant a fantasy spot on a roster.
