Thomas is unlikely to return to true fantasy relevance this year, but he can help best ball teams that need a third tight end to potentially fill gaps left by a weak top two choices at the position. He scored nine times in 21 games with the Jaguars, and the last time we saw Thomas with Miami head coach Adam Gase, he was a red zone wonder in Denver. He'll find the end zone enough to make his 13th/14th round price reasonable if you feel forced to go with three tight ends.

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.
