Broncos get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2014) The Broncos got several minor offensive contributions in their Super Bowl loss. Tight end Julius Thomas caught four of six targets for 27 yards, and tight end Jacob Tamme had two catches for 9 yards.

Running back Montee Ball was held to 1 yard on six carries, and he caught two balls for 2 yards. Running back C.J. Anderson carried twice for 9 yards and added a 14-yard catch.


Julius Thomas could struggle vs. Seahawks


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/28/2014) Not many teams have slowed down Broncos tight end Julius Thomas this season, but the Seahawks are a tough opponent heading into Super Bowl XLVIII.

So far in the playoffs the Seahawks have faced Jimmy Graham and Vernon Davis in consecutive games and held them to a combined three catches for 24 yards, which is incredible. Now, Seattle has allowed six touchdowns to tight ends this season with three reaching double digits in Fantasy points.

And the Broncos are going to spread out this Seattle defense to allow Thomas plenty of room to operate in single coverage. He also will likely get close to the nine targets by himself that Graham (six) and Davis (three) combined for against Seattle, since he has 18 targets in the two playoff games and hasn't had fewer than five targets in eight consecutive games.

But this Seattle defense will make it tough on Thomas, who has gone three games in a row without a touchdown. He's easily the best tight end left for any Playoff Challenge leagues, but don't be surprised if he's held to single digits in Fantasy points for the sixth time in his past seven games based on the matchup.

This should be a fun position battle to watch to see how the Seahawks defend Thomas and if they can slow him down like they did with Graham and Davis. Hopefully we'll see Thomas shine, but don't be surprised if he's limited once again.


Broncos wide receivers not worried about physical Seahawks


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) The Broncos wideouts are not worried about the physical Seahawks, according to NFL.com.

"It don't bother me," Demaryius Thomas said. "I like getting hit." Julius Thomas agreed, saying Denver will have to match Seattle's intensity. "You can't come out and get pushed around," the tight end said. Though Peyton Manning will have a bevy of options at his disposal, the Seahawks rated second in the league in points allowed last season. Whether the team's wide receivers can get open against a tough Seattle secondary will be one of the biggest story lines heading into the game.


Julius Thomas' big day could have been huge


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas caught a team-high eight passes for 85 yards in the AFC Championship Game, including a 37-yard gain to help seal the win. But he dropped a perfectly thrown pass over his shoulder that would have gone for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter.

Thomas continues to be a complete mismatch for defenses. He drew a team-high 11 targets in the victory. Thomas will play the Seahawks or 49ers in Super Bowl XLVIII.


Julius Thomas comes through in the clutch


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2014) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas caught six of seven targets for a team-high 76 yards and lost a fumble in the win over San Diego. He saved his biggest plays for the game's final drive.

On 3rd-and-17, Thomas got wide open along the sideline and got his feet inbounds for a 21-yard gain. On 3rd-and-6, Thomas made a 9-yard catch to seal the win. He'll play the Patriots in next Sunday's AFC Championship Game.


All four of Denver's tight ends chip in vs. Oakland


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) All four of Denver's tight ends chipped in during Sunday's win over the Raiders in Week 17.

Julius Thomas led all tight ends with five receptions for 36 yards, averaging 7.2 yards per grab. Jacob Tamme caught three of his four targets for 29 yards while Joel Dreessen caught all three targets for 26 yards. Virgil Green took over in the second half and caught all two of his targeted passes for 15 yards for the Broncos.

Julius Thomas a good bet for another touchdown


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2013) Julius Thomas enters Week 17 at Oakland as the No. 3 Fantasy tight end. He's scored twice in the past three games, including catching Peyton Manning's record-setting 51st touchdown last week, and has produced at least one score in 10 of his 13 appearances.

Thomas' 12 touchdowns are the most ever by a Broncos tight end in a season. (Shannon Sharpe twice scored 10). Linebackers can't cover him, and Manning loves throwing to him whenever they try.

The Raiders give up the 9th-fewest Fantasy points (6.5 per game) to tight ends, allowing one touchdown in the last five weeks. No matter. Start Thomas as a top-5 play Sunday.


Julius Thomas scores in victory


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas caught six passes for 78 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-13 victory over the Texans. He was targeted eight times. 

The touchdown was the 12th of the season for Thomas, and his second in three games. The 78 yards were the most for Thomas since Week 10, which was the last full game he played healthy, before hurting his knee in Week 11 (Thomas was inactive in Weeks 12 and 13). 

Thomas scored on a 25-yard catch in the fourth quarter. The touchdown was Peyton Manning's 51st of the season, which set a new single-season NFL record. 

The Broncos play the Raiders in Week 17. When the teams first met, in Week 3, Thomas caught three passes for 37 yards and a touchdown. 


Julius Thomas just fine Sunday


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas, who was listed as probable on Friday's injury report because of a knee injury, is active for Week 16 at Houston.

Thomas was able to practice in full all week. He missed Weeks 12 and 13 with the injury but has played every game since.


Broncos place nine probables on Friday injury report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) The Broncos have listed nine players as probable for Sunday against Houston. Included on the list is the pass-catching combination of quarterback Peyton Manning (ankle), tight end Julius Thomas (knee) and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (shoulder).

The others are cornerback Champ Bailey (foot), tight end Joel Dreessen (knee), wideout Trindon Holliday (shoulder), guard Chris Kuper (ankle), tackle Winston Justice (finger) and linebackerDanny Trevathan (shoulder).


Julius Thomas still a top tight end option


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/17/2013) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas caught just four passes for 49 yards in last Thursday's loss to the Chargers, failing to get into the end zone for the first time in four games. But the game came on a quick turnaround, and Thomas was still dealing with a knee injury. 

This Sunday, 10 days after the Chargers game, a rested Thomas should be able to take advantage of a great matchup against Houston. The Texans -- while allowing the second-fewest passing yards per game this season -- have allowed four tight end touchdowns in the last six games. And one of those came in a six-catch, 127-yard performance from Rob Gronkowski, who is more of a Thomas-type player than most of their recent opponents (Vernon Davis caught three passes for 88 yards and a touchdown, but that was back in Week 5). 

With plenty of time to rest, and a nice matchup in Week 16, Thomas can be started in most Fantasy formats. 


Julius Thomas held out of the end zone


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas entered Week 15 against the Chargers with a three-game scoring streak intact, but was unable to find the end zone in a 27-20 loss Thursday.

Thomas actually bested his previous two games' receiving yard totals, as he finished with 49 yards on his four catches. He was targeted seven times in the passing game, with a long reception of 22 yards.

Thomas missed two games with a knee injury, but is still on pace for a very strong season. He has 54 receptions for 674 yards and 11 touchdowns entering Week 16 against the Texans. 


Julius Thomas able to play through knee again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas (knee) is active for Week 15 against the Chargers, as he continues to play through the injury that initially cost him two games. Thomas got through the week in practice and was considered probable for Thursday's game. 

Top Broncos among probables for Thursday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) The Broncos have placed 18 players on their final injury report before they play San Diego on Thursday night, but 15 are probable.

Among them are premier skill position players such as quarterback Peyton Manning (ankle) running back Knowshon Moreno (shoulder), wide receivers Eric Decker (ribs) and Demaryius Thomas (shoulder) and tight end Julius Thomas (knee).


Julius Thomas still elite, despite injury


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/10/2013) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas -- still feeling the after-effects of a knee injury -- played for the first time in three weeks against Tennessee Sunday, catching five passes for 35 yards and a touchdown. It was Thomas' 11th touchdown of the season.

Week 15 brings a matchup against the Chargers, a team Thomas has already faced once, in Week 10. In that game, Thomas caught three passes for 96 yards and a touchdown. That score began a run of tight ends scoring four touchdowns in the last five games against the Chargers, with Thomas' 96 yards being the most gained against them this season. 

Despite being slowed by the knee injury -- and playing on Thursday night, which is a quick turnaround -- Thomas is a top option at tight end and should be started in most formats. 


Julius Thomas scores in return


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas found the end zone Week 14 against the Titans.

Thomas caught five passes for 35 yards, and hooked up with Peyton Manning on an 8 yard score in the second quarter. Thomas wasn't much of a big play threat, and was mainly used on short routes. While he didn't seem limited after missing two games with a knee injury, the team may have opted to use him on shorter routes in his first game back. His final target was marked as a deep pass, so he may be capable of doing more next week. Thomas will take on the Chargers Week 15.


Julius Thomas active Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas is active Week 14 against the Titans.

Thomas has missed the past two games with a knee injury. He was able to take part in full practice both Thursday and Friday. 


Nearly all on Broncos injury report are probable


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Thirteen of 16 players on the Broncos injury report released on Friday are probable. Among them are key offensive standouts such as quarterback Peyton Manning (ankle), running back Knowshon Moreno (ankle), tight end Julius Thomas (knee) and wideout Demaryius Thomas  (ankle).

The other offensive players listed among the probables are tight end Joel Dreessen (knee) and offensive linemen Chris Kuper (ankle), J.D. Walton (ankle) and Winston Justice (finger).

The defensive probables are safety David Bruton (shoulder), end Malik Jackson (knee), Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (shoulder), linebacker Danny Trevathan (shoulder) and cornerback Kayvon Webster (ankle).


Trio of top Broncos threats probable for game against Titans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Three premier Broncos skill position players have been deemed probable for Sunday against Tennessee, including tight end Julius Thomas (knee), who had missed the last two games.

Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (shoulder) and running back Knowshon Moreno (ankle) are also probable.


Two key Broncos are full-go at Thursday practice


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) The Broncos received positive news Thursday when tight end Julius Thomas (knee) and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (shoulder) returned to practice as full participants.

Thomas has not played since Week 11 while Rodgers-Cromartie was sidelined Sunday at Kansas City.


Julius Thomas a strong start...if he plays


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas could be in for a nice game Week 14 against the Titans.

Tennessee has been an average team defending tight ends this season, allowing them to score 7.50 Fantasy points per game. The team has been strong against the pass, giving up just eight passing touchdowns in 12 games. Of those eight touchdowns, six have gone to tight ends, so they are susceptible. 

Thomas hasn't been able to play the past two weeks due to a knee injury, but was able to practice on a limited basis Wednesday. If he can improve throughout the week, and looks like he'll play, he could be a decent start. The Titans have done such a strong job limiting wide receivers, so Thomas could be their main weapon Week 14.


Julius Thomas gets in limited practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas, who's missed the past two games with a knee injury, practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, reports the Denver Post. Denver will host Tennessee on Sunday.

Julius Thomas unable to go Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas is inactive Week 13 against the Chiefs.

Thomas has been dealing with a knee injury, and was questionable entering the game. He was limited in practice every day this week.


No sure thing Julius Thomas plays Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas was forced to sit out in Week 12 due to a knee injury, and it looks like he might not be able to play through the injury in Week 13 against the Chiefs either. ESPN.com reports Thomas' chances of playing Sunday are "iffy at best," though his official status is likely to be determined closer to gametime.
