Broncos TE Julius Thomas finds the end zone


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas managed to find the end zone Week 10 against the Patriots.

He was able to score on his first catch of the game, picking up 18 yards on the strike. Thomas' first catch didn't come until the third quarter. He was targeted just two times, and was mostly used as a blocker in the first half.

Thomas will look for more Week 10 against the Raiders. 


Julius Thomas snaps scoreless drought


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas snapped out of his scoring drought  in Week 9 against the Patriots, but there still might be reasons for his Fantasy owners to be concerned moving forward.

Thomas scored his first touchdown in three games Sunday, on an 18-yard pass from Peyton Manning to open the second half. However, it was one of just two passes he caught in the game, as he finished with 33 yards and, most troublingly, he was targeted just two times in the game.

Thomas is always going to be one of the more touchdown-dependent players in the league, which is fine, because he has 10 touchdowns in nine games this season and 12 in 14 a year ago. Still, he is averaging just 40 yards per game this season, well below his average of 56.3 from a year ago.

Thomas is going to keep seeing work in the red zone, but his play in Weeks 7 and 8 showed what can happen if he doesn't come down with any scores. He is a must-start Fantasy option, but is not quite looking like the stud he was  a year ago. 


Julius Thomas' touchdown drought no cause for concern


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) After his second subpar performance in a row, we have to ask: Are you worried about Broncos tight end Julius Thomas?

Thomas has long been dependent on touchdowns, but he has also been a touchdown machine over the last two seasons. He has at least one touchdown in five of seven games this season and 10 of 14 last season, so he has proven to be a reliable red zone option. In fact, Week 7 and 8 represents the first time he has gone two weeks in a row without scoring.

Thomas recorded nine games with less than 50 yards last season, and has four in seven games already this season, so you pretty much know what you are getting from him. He was still targeted six times overall in each of the last two games even without scoring, a solid number in line with what we have come to expect.

In other words, don't panic. That Thomas failed to score in consecutive games for the first time in two seasons is probably bad luck more than anything indicative of a changing role. He remains one of the most dangerous weapons in the league near the end zone, and should make his return there soon. 


Broncos TE Julius Thomas held in check vs. San Diego


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas took another step back in a Week 8 victory over the Chargers on Thursday.

Thomas, who's fresh off a disappointing four-catch, 27-yard outing, was held in check by San Diego's defense. He caught a 6-yard pass on the second drive of the night, followed by a 17-yard grab in the fourth quarter. He was targeted six times and finished with two catches for 23 yards -- all season lows for the tight end.

Thomas has 30 catches for 327 yards and nine scores on the year. He'll be seeking a bounce-back performance Week 9 at New England.


Julius Thomas held to 27 yards on Broncos' Week 7 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas caught four of his six targets for just 27 yards in his team's 42-17 win over the 49ers in Week 7.

Though Peyton Manning would throw four touchdowns en route to setting the career passing-touchdown mark, Thomas wasn't a part of the offensive explosion. It's the first time he's failed to score after racking up nine touchdowns in the team's first five games. He'll look to get back on track when the Broncos face the Chargers Thursday.


'It's too easy' for Julius Thomas


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/12/2014) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas put it best after scoring his second touching Week 6 at the Jets, shouting "it's too easy!" twice after catching a 4-yard pass from quarterback Peyton Manning midway through the third quarter.

He may have said it a little more colorfully the first time, but you get the idea: He thinks scoring touchdowns is easier than it should be, and you can certainly understand why. He already has nine in five games.

His other numbers in this game again wouldn't blow anyone away. He had four catches on six targets for 51 yards. But his size and strength makes him an ideal red-zone target for Manning, and with Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and Wes Welker already demanding so much of the defense's attention, it's just, well, "too easy."

As is assessing Thomas' Fantasy value, so I'm going to stop right now.


Broncos TE Julius Thomas adds TDs eight and nine Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas only caught four passes Sunday against the host Jets, but he took two of them into the end zone. He has certainly been a frequent visitor.

Thomas became the first tight end in NFL history to rack up eight touchdowns in first five games when he snagged a 22-yarder with just 27 seconds left in the first half. He then made it nine with a 4-yard scoring toss from Peyton Manning midway throiugh the third quarter. He finished with 51 yards receiving.

He has scored at least one touchdown in every game this season and will seek to add another notch to his belt when the Broncos host San Francisco next Sunday.


NFL fines Broncos TE Julius Thomas $8,268 for illegal chop block


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) The NFL fined Broncos tight end Julius Thomas $8,268 for his illegal chop block on Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell in Week 5, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter on Wednesday. As a result of Thomas's chop block, Campbell suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain and is expected to be sidelined several weeks.

Thomas will not be suspended and should be available to play Week 6 at N.Y. Jets.


Broncos' Julius Thomas facing fine for illegal chop block, league says


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) The officiating crew made the "correct" call penalizing Broncos tight end Julius Thomas for chop blocking Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell in Week 5, according to NFL spokesman Michael Signora on Monday.

"The play was penalized because it was an illegal chop block, a violation of Rule 12, Section 2, Article 3 items c) and d)," Signora said, per ESPN. "The officials threw the flag for the 'reverse chop.' Thomas blocked Campbell 'in the area of the thigh or lower,' as specified by rule, and Clady engages Campbell high 'simultaneously or immediately after the block' by Thomas, resulting in the penalty. The play also violated part c) of the rule, known as a 'lure.' While Thomas chops Campbell, Clady 'confronts the defensive player in a pass-blocking posture but is not physically engaged with the defensive player.'"

Campbell suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain, which will likely keep him off the field for a few weeks. Arizona coach Bruce Arians called it the dirtiest play he's ever seen in his 37 years of coaching. Thomas is expected to be fined in the coming days by the league, according to Signora.


Julius Thomas still not the top tight end


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2014) Would you trade Jimmy Graham for Julius Thomas? With a two-score game Week 5 against Arizona, Thomas has the touchdowns Graham owners were hoping for and is the only healthy one of the two after Graham left his game against Buffalo with a sprained shoulder.

But Thomas isn't a big target for Peyton Manning between the 20s. His 66 receiving yards in Week 5 were the second-most he's had in five games, and only 38 of those came outside of the red zone.

To put it another way, on a day when Manning set a career high with 479 passing yards, Thomas was responsible for only 66 of them. He's a big a target in the red zone, but with Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and Wes Welker off and running, Manning doesn't have much need for him otherwise.

Of course, the Broncos offense spends a lot of time in the red zone, so Thomas' rate of scoring touchdowns probably won't slow more than the law of averages suggests it should. But without the big yardage, he's never going to carry your team the way Graham can. Among tight ends, he remains a distant second for me.


Broncos TE Julius Thomas continues scoring binge Week 5


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas continued his scoring binge Week 5 against the Cardinals.

Thomas gained 66 yards on six receptions during the contest. He remained Peyton Manning's favorite weapon in the end zone. Thomas scored on the team's first offensive drive on a 7 yard out. He would also haul in a 12 yard score in the fourth quarter. Thomas now leads the league with 7 touchdowns. 

He'll look for more Week 6 against the Jets. 


Julius Thomas scores fifth touchdown in three games


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas scored his fifth touchdown of the season in a Week 3 overtime loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.

Thomas was limited to just one grab for 9 yards in the first half. He caught a 5-yard pass on the first drive of the final quarter. On the ensuing drive, Peyton Manning gave him a shovel pass for a 3-yard touchdown. Thomas caught three of the four passes thrown his way for 17 yards and a touchdown in a 26-20 defeat.

Through three games, Thomas has registered 160 receiving yards to go along with his five touchdowns. The Broncos will get a bye before returning to action at home in Week 5 against Arizona.
