Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 11 vs DET (5 / 3 / 12 / 0 rec)

Another week, the same story for Thomas. They only use him on short routes, which gain nothing because he is terrible at getting YAC. The QB is too bad to get him the ball where he shines, and he is playing like a player who knows the season is a lost cause.

2016 Week 10 vs HOU (10 / 6 / 24 / 1 rec)

Thomas got his weekly redzone target but he is useless between the 20s. Bortles can't get the ball to him and he does not break any tackles when they try to force him the ball. He has also been taken off the field constantly on non-passing downs.

2016 Week 9 vs KC (2 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)

Thomas is either catching a touchdown pass or he is doing absolutely nothing. He is looking like a major FA bust. He does not consistently get open, due to both lack of speed and effort.

2016 Week 8 vs TEN (6 / 3 / 28 / 1 rec)

Thomas remains a reliable target in the redzone; that is where all of his touchdowns have come from. He does a good job of erasing some of Bortles inaccuracy but he is simply not being used to his full potential because of the lack of downfield passing from the offense as a whole.

2016 Week 7 vs OAK (7 / 3 / 20 / 1 rec)

The Jaguars tried to get Thomas involved, both early and often, but nothing is coming of it. Again, it has more to do with the quarterback play than the skill player. He did see multiple redzone targets for the first time all season, and his late touchdown was one of the best plays he has made as a Jaguar.

2016 Week 6 vs CHI (4 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec)

Thomas did not have a catch until late in the game and he did not see a single red zone target.

2016 Week 3 vs BAL (5 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)

Thomas and Bortles just were not on the same page today. Thomas failed to create much separation and when he did, Bortles failed to capitalize. A day to forget.

2016 Week 2 vs SD (7 / 4 / 71 / 0 rec)

Thomas, along with Hurns, was one of the view offensive players who showed up. They used him to stretch the middle of the field to some success but for some reason went away from it. He was able to get open on a go route near the end zone but Bortles overthrew him by a country mile. If you evaluate him with the context of his situation, he has had a very good start to the season.

2016 Week 1 vs GB (5 / 5 / 64 / 1 rec)

Thomas had one of the best, if not the best, games of his Jaguar career from a consistency and efficiency standpoint. He did not drop a single target that came his way and showed his terrific versatility throughout the game, lining up both in-line, in the slot, and flexed out wide. He converted several first down receptions for the offense and was a constant threat up the seam of the defense. His big play of the day came when he was flexed out wide in the redzone and beat the defender by a step, creating a deep window for Bortles to place the touchdown pass in. If this game showed anything, it is that the Jaguars are going to use Thomas all over the field to ensure that they get the ball in his hands.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas feeling good (Sat Apr 22, 01:55 PM) - Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas told the Florida Times-Union recently this spring 'is probably the best I’ve ever felt' and that head coach Adam Gase's offense 'feels a lot like home'.

Our View: Thomas is a weapon, and he can certainly be a TD hog for the Dolphins in 2017. He's never played a full 16-game season in the pros, so we'll be shocked if this is his first. Thomas is a TE1 for fantasy owners, but he comes with injury risk.
