Julius Thomas caught 9-of-10 targets for 116 yards and one touchdown in the Jaguars' Week 12 loss to the Chargers.
It was easily Thomas' best and most complete game as a Jaguar. He had a big fourth-down catch where he out-muscled a defender on the sideline, and later capped off the drive with a 21-yard touchdown, roasting FS Eric Weddle in coverage with a nifty out-and-up double-move down the seam. It was a perfect throw with not much room for error from Blake Bortles. Thomas has now scored in back-to-back games and could see his role increase more Week 13 against the Titans with Allen Hurns suffering a severe concussion Sunday. Thomas went 5-28-1 against Tennessee in Week 11. Nov 29 - 5:35 PM

Julius Thomas caught 5-of-8 targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in Jacksonville's Week 11 win over the Titans.

Both the catches and yards were Thomas' second most of the season, while the score was his second as a Jaguar. Thomas was wide open on his touchdown. He was also the intended target on Blake Bortles' interception, but it was simply a bad pass from the quarterback. Thomas will be the TE1 conversation against a Colts defense that struggles to cover tight ends in Week 12.
Nov 20 - 12:17 AM

Julius Thomas caught 2-of-5 targets for 23 yards in the Jaguars' Week 10 win over the Ravens.

He, Marqise Lee, and Bryan Walters each saw five targets well behind alpha dogs Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns. There's just not much after the Allens in this offense, leaving Thomas as a low-upside, low-floor TE1/2.
Nov 15 - 7:07 PM

Julius Thomas (abdomen) is probable for Week 10 against the Ravens.

Thomas and Blake Bortles' chemistry has been off aside from Week 6, and Thomas admits the timing just hasn't been right. He'll be hard to trust as anything more than a high-end TE2 unless Allen Hurns (foot) sits out.
Nov 13 - 11:25 AM

Julius Thomas blamed his recent struggles on a lack of timing with Blake Bortles.

"I’m very confident we’ll start connecting," Thomas said. "The looks are there. The opportunities are there. As we get a better feel for each other and our timing, it’s going to come along." Thomas dominated to the Texans for 78 yards and a score in his second game as a Jaguar, but he has caught just 4-of-13 targets for 18 scoreless yards since. Thomas will be a TE2 this week against a Ravens team much more vulnerable to wide receivers than tight ends, but he could be worth a TE1 look if Allen Hurns (foot) is forced to miss.
Nov 12 - 9:37 AM

Julius Thomas reeled in three of eight targets for 14 yards in the Jaguars' Week 9 loss to the Jets.

Thomas saw plenty of targets but wasn't able to do anything with them. Aside from a 78-yard game against Houston in Week 6, Thomas has been a non-factor this year. He’ll be a TE2 against Baltimore in Week 10.
Nov 8 - 5:53 PM

Julius Thomas (abdomen) is probable for Week 9 against the Jets.

He's been practicing in full all week. Thomas is RotoPat's No. 16 tight end for Week 9. He gets a boost with Jets SS Calvin Pryor looking like he won't play.
Nov 6 - 11:14 AM

Julius Thomas (abdomen) is practicing in full for Week 9.

Thomas was limited in Week 7, but is improved coming off the Jaguars' bye week. He'll be more of a TE2 than TE1 against the Jets.
Nov 5 - 5:45 PM

Julius Thomas is dealing with a "mild" groin injury.

The injury helps to explain why Thomas was on the field for just 37 snaps against the Bills on Sunday. With the bye week to heal, the injury should not force Thomas to miss any game time. He will be a low-end TE1 Week 9 against the Jets.
Oct 27 - 1:13 PM

Julius Thomas caught 1-of-5 targets for four yards Week 7 against the Bills.

Thomas had a longish gain called back on penalty in the first half, but it was an otherwise quiet and extremely disappointing day after Thomas turned 13 targets in a 7-78-1 line last week. Thomas showed poor effort on a deep target late in the game and sat out a couple snaps following the play. It is possible he is dealing with conditioning issues coming off a long layoff. Despite the rough game, Thomas will be a low-end TE1 Week 9 against the Jets.
Oct 25 - 1:35 PM

Julius Thomas (chest, hand) is probable for Week 7.

Thomas picked up a rib injury last week, but practiced in full. He's a mid-range TE1 against the Bills in London.
Oct 23 - 5:04 PM

Julius Thomas (chest, hand) is practicing in full for Week 7.

Thomas is fine after landing awkwardly on the football in last Sunday's loss. He's a top-eight option for Week 7.
Oct 22 - 6:13 PM

Julius Thomas suffered a bruised rib in Sunday's loss to the Texans.

Thomas suffered the injury falling on the football. It's been that kind of year for the Jaguars. At least for now, there's no reason to believe it will hold Thomas out against the Bills in London. Thomas' status will be updated when the Jags return to practice on Wednesday.
Oct 19 - 1:10 PM

Julius Thomas caught 7-of-13 targets for 78 yards and a touchdown Week 6 against the Texans.

The Texans defense left Thomas all alone across the middle of the field in the third quarter, and Blake Bortles found him for his first touchdown as a Jaguar. Despite the touchdown, Thomas did not appear to be in sync with Bortles on several throws, and he may have been at fault for Bortles' pick-six in the fourth quarter. Thomas still did not appear to be an every-down player, but he was heavily involved in the passing game throughout. Even if Allen Robinson's leg injury is not serious, Thomas will be a back-end TE1 next week against the Bills.
Oct 18 - 4:49 PM

Julius Thomas (probable, hand) could have a "significant" role this week.

Thomas was limited to 32 snaps in his debut last week. He's not expected to have an every-down role, but should be more of a factor in the red-zone. Thomas is Rotoworld’s No. 13 tight end for Week 6.
