From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 23): Thomas looks a bit soft and sluggish compared to last year, but he was still a viable red zone target and the Jags seemed intent on getting him involved early against the Titans. He's not quite a TE1, but Thomas is getting there.

Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 11 vs TEN (8 / 5 / 28 / 1 rec)

Early involvement - first two targets of the game. One a deep shot play off play action. Slipped and fell in the open field (rainy game) on his third catch. He the game winning catch on a stick route from the five yard line.

2015 Week 10 vs BAL (5 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)

Another very quiet game for Thomas. He had a target along the sidelines on first drive, but Bortles placed it too far inside and the defender broke it up. Very nice third down conversion on a Bortles scramble in the second quarter.

2015 Week 9 vs NYJ (8 / 3 / 14 / 0 rec)

Thomas remains a non-factor in the Jaguar offense, despite seeing a healthy target load and snap count. During the game, pictures started surfacing of Thomas looking overweight compared to last year, and on the field he does look bigger and more sluggish than he did while in Denver.

2015 Week 7 vs BUF (5 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Thomas really had one noteworthy play in this game - a bobbled catch-and-run over the middle of the field, but was a big gainer. He also drew a defensive pass interference on a redzone target (endzone fade where he lined up from the slot). While he is lining up more as a tight end/wing, his primary usage still comes as an outside wide receiver.

2015 Week 6 vs HOU (13 / 7 / 78 / 1 rec)

Thomas received a lot of targets to the detriment of the offense. Tight end continues to be a black hole for the Jaguars passing offense. Two of Bortles' interceptions came from targeting Thomas - one a predetermined throw/bad decision in the redzone and the second a miscommunication on a Stick/option route (likely Thomas' fault). He did catch a TD pass deep down the seam, splitting the safeties vs zone. He is a very finesse player that goes down easily on contact.

2015 Week 5 vs TB (2 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)

Thomas suited up for the first time since week one of the preseason. He played no inline snaps, mixing in at slot, outside wide receiver, and as a wing tight end. His first target came on the second drive of the game, a mini-curl for about seven yards. He made a big 3rd down conversion, sitting in a hole in the zone on a Bortles scramble (he also drew an illegal hands to the face from the defender while running his route).
