Huddle Up: The Dolphins are hoping that Thomas can be the weapon he was in Denver and not the bust he was in Jacksonville, but the early returns don't sound encouraging. You can stash him as a TE2 in case he returns to form, but don't count on him being a fantasy starter.
Posted: 6/7/2017 11:52am ET
Huddle Up: Thomas has played well when he is healthy, but the problem is that he has not played more than 14 games in any season since entering the NFL. He should have a solid role in the passing game this upcoming season and probably should be considered as a No. 2 fantasy tight end because of his injury history.
Posted: 5/26/2017 3:34pm ET
Huddle Up: Thomas will have training camp and the preseason to build chemistry with Tannehill, so owners should not be worried about the situation. Thomas should be a valuable fantasy option for owners as long as he is healthy and can be a low-end No. 1 option.
Posted: 5/6/2017 6:31pm ET
Huddle Up: There is no doubt that Jacksonville badly misused Thomas the last two seasons, but injuries are also a major concern with the tight end. He is worth a look as a low-end TE1, but you will want to have backup plan in place.
Posted: 5/6/2017 10:24am ET
Huddle Up: It's a highly optimistic and, quite likely, unrealistic projection given Thomas' injury history, the fact he isn't playing with Peyton Manning anymore and Miami's focus on running the ball with Jay Ajayi. It is quite likely, however, Thomas does emerge as Ryan Tannehill's favorite red zone target, so he could have low-end TE1 upside.
Posted: 4/22/2017 10:55am ET
Huddle Up: Gase was the offensive coordinator in Denver when Thomas posted back-to-back seasons of 12 receiving touchdowns, so the 28-year-old tight end certainly has reason to be optimistic if he is as healthy as he says he is. With Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills taking defensive attention away from him at receiver, Thomas could be poised for a nice rebound in 2017.
Posted: 4/3/2017 7:54pm ET
Huddle Up: When Gase and Thomas were together in Denver, the latter was arguably the most productive tight end in all of football, accumulating a whopping 24 touchdowns in 27 games as a starter. By comparison, Thomas didn't even score ten times combined over his two years with the Jaguars, but injuries played a role in that as well. The 28-year-old will have great potential as a sleeper in Miami.
Posted: 3/25/2017 8:00pm ET
Huddle Up: There are a lot of mouths to feed in Miami's passing attack, and even if he can stay healthy, Thomas will have a tough time being more than a TE2 in 2017.
Posted: 3/14/2017 9:47am ET
Huddle Up: Reunited with Adam Gase, Thomas hopes to regain some of his glory from the 2013 and '14 seasons in which he scored a total of 24 times. He is too risky for TE1 status, but there is weekly flex consideration and daily gaming worth here. Thomas has to compete with three viable receivers for touches in an offense that figures to run the ball as much as possible to shield Ryan Tannehill.
Posted: 2/26/2017 11:45am ET
Huddle Up: A former college basketball player, Thomas has never been a great blocker, so his struggles in that facet of the game certainly shouldn't have come as a surprise to the Jaguars, who will officially deal him to the Dolphins at the start of the new league year on March 9. Miami head coach Adam Gase was Thomas' offensive coordinator during his best years with the Denver Broncos and should be able to help his pupil climb back to low-end TE1 status in fantasy.
Posted: 2/22/2017 6:00am ET
Huddle Up: Thomas will be in a familiar system he thrived in with the Denver Broncos, and he has a quarterback that has a knack of throwing to tight ends. It could be a great spot for him if he can stay healthy. He's a bounce-back pick as a TE2.
Posted: 2/20/2017 2:24pm ET
Huddle Up: The departure of Thomas means Marcedes Lewis and Ben Koyacek are likely the top candidates to take over the starting job, at least for now. The Jaguars could obviously add a tight end via free agency or the NFL Draft. If nothing changes, neither Lewis nor Koyacek should be drafted as TE1s.
Posted: 2/20/2017 2:16pm ET
Huddle Up: Thomas has really come down to earth after two 12-touchdown seasons with the Denver Broncos. Injuries have plagued him throughout his career, too. The Dolphins are hoping for the Thomas of old with this trade, and he could be a valuable receiving threat, particularly in the red zone. That being said, expectations should be tempered. It's safer to draft Thomas as a backup fantasy tight end after he missed seven games last season.
Posted: 2/20/2017 9:38am ET
Huddle Up: There could be any number of reasons for this development, although the most likely are the Jaguars got cold feet or reasoned Thomas was worth more than the late-round pick they are reportedly giving up now to get Albert. Although a trade has reportedly been agreed to, expect more updates in the hours and days ahead before the trade can be officially consummated. If Thomas remains in Jacksonville, he's a high-end TE2 at best.
Posted: 2/10/2017 10:29am ET
Huddle Up: This obviously means if the Jaguars are going to part ways with Thomas this offseason, today would be a good day to make it happen. Jacksonville doesn't really need the cap space, but Thomas has been something of an injury-riddled disappointment in two years with the Jags. Ben Koyack flashed some potential throughout the season and could emerge as a serviceable fantasy TE2 in 2017 if Thomas is cut.
Posted: 12/10/2016 5:28pm ET
Huddle Up: Thomas has been a huge disappointment for Jacksonville, and injuries continue to derail his career. He has shown he can be a TE1 in the right system, but he won't be worth drafting in most leagues next year if he ends up back in Jacksonville.
Posted: 12/9/2016 8:33am ET
Huddle Up: Neil Sterling had a mini-breakout last week with five catches for 43 yards. He'll be an option in DFS leagues if you're looking for a low-end filler against the Minnesota Vikings.
Posted: 12/2/2016 8:36am ET
Huddle Up: Thomas has been a shell of himself this year, and the team doesn't have a suitable replacement for fantasy purposes. Marcedes Lewis would be a basement option in DFS if you're looking to ration salary cap space.
Posted: 12/2/2016 7:52am ET
Huddle Up: Thomas has been a shell of himself this year, and this is a bad sign for his status this week. Avoid him against the Denver Broncos.
Posted: 11/25/2016 8:24am ET
Huddle Up: If you're looking to catch lightning in a bottle, Ben Koyack has the matchup to do it against the Buffalo Bills. They've yielded the fourth-most points per game to tight ends in PPR leagues the last five weeks. Koyack has a five-catch game this season and would be a shot in the dark maybe worth consideration.
Posted: 11/24/2016 6:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Thomas has barely been involved in the passing game in recent weeks. Even if he suits up, he should be avoided in Week 12.
Posted: 11/6/2016 3:06pm ET
Huddle Up: Thomas posted his fourth straight game with under 30 yards and should be considered a No. 2 tight end moving forward.
Posted: 11/4/2016 4:23pm ET
Huddle Up: Thomas has not posted big numbers over the last few weeks but should still have a role in the passing game in Week 9. Thomas could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues as a bye week replacement, but owners in most leagues should be able to find better options.
Posted: 11/4/2016 12:29pm ET
Huddle Up: Despite the good news, Thomas is going to be hard to use this week. Not only has he failed to eclipse 30 yards receiving in any of his last four games, but he also figures to see plenty of safety Eric Berry, who usually shadows the opponent's top tight end. Kansas City has surrendered only four touchdowns to tight ends since Week 11 of the 2014 season, which is bad news for the touchdown-dependent Thomas. Owners need to look for other options this week.
Posted: 11/3/2016 8:29pm ET
Huddle Up: This should ensure he plays in Week 9. While it won't be an easy matchup opposite a Chiefs defense that is solid against tight ends, Thomas will enter this one having scored in two straight contests. However, he's a touchdown-dependent option at tight end, as he hasn't secured more than three receptions or topped 30 receiving yards since Week 2.
Posted: 11/2/2016 1:38pm ET
Huddle Up: Thomas has dealt with injuries throughout the season but has been able to play in most weeks. He has not posted more than 28 yards in any of the last four games and should only be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.
Posted: 10/27/2016 4:57pm ET
Huddle Up: He was questionable entering this contest, but even so, it's hard to lean on the former Denver Bronco right now in any standard leagues based on his production as of late, not to mention the fact that he's probably at less than 100 percent health. Over his last three games, Thomas has combined for just 61 receiving yards on seven catches, though he did manage to find the end zone last week. He's starting to fall into TE2 territory if he can't turn things back around.
Posted: 10/26/2016 11:13am ET
Huddle Up: Owners will have to check the inactive list to see if Thomas will be able to play against the Tennessee Titans this week. He has not posted more than 28 yards in any of the last three games and probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.
Posted: 10/25/2016 4:00pm ET
Huddle Up: It's concerning that Thomas didn't practice today after practicing yesterday, especially in a short week. If Thomas doesn't practice tomorrow then he'll probably be doubtful for Thursday night's contest. Marcedes Lewis would start if Thomas does not play, but Lewis isn't a capable TE1 like Thomas is.
Posted: 10/24/2016 4:24pm ET
Huddle Up: Thomas was the silver lining of the Jaguars' Week 7 loss, but he just can't be trusted as a weekly TE1 with Blake Bortles sporadic play. His injury and possible jet lag via going to London could also be negative factors.
Posted: 10/23/2016 8:31pm ET
Huddle Up: The touchdown was nice for Thomas, his first since Week 1, but the yardage total stunk for the third straight game. He can no longer be trusted as a TE1 until he starts to produce like he did back in the first two games when he had nine grabs for 135 yards and a score.
Posted: 10/23/2016 9:13am ET
Huddle Up: Thomas has not made a big impact in the passing game at this point and has recorded only 41 yards in the last two games. He could be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in Week 7 because of the matchup.
Posted: 10/22/2016 6:43pm ET
Huddle Up: Injuries have played a part in Thomas' lack of production, but his tenure with the Jaguars continues to be underwhelming. He is a low-end TE1 candidate against the Raiders in Week 7.
Posted: 10/21/2016 4:39pm ET
Huddle Up: Thomas' status is uncertain at this point, so owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he will play. He has been pretty quiet over his last two games but could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues if he is active. Owners will need other options ready if he is ruled out.
Posted: 10/16/2016 2:58pm ET
Huddle Up: Thomas was coming off an elbow injury and caught two of the four passes thrown to him. He has only 41 yards in his last two games but could be a low-end No. 1 tight end against the Oakland Raiders next week.
Posted: 10/14/2016 4:31pm ET
Huddle Up: Thomas should have a solid role in the passing game this week and has a chance to have a good game against the Chicago Bears. Owners in deeper leagues should consider him a low-end No. 1 tight end.
Posted: 10/13/2016 12:01pm ET
Huddle Up: Thomas should return to the lineup in Week 6 and should have a solid role in the passing game. He should have a favorable matchup against the Chicago Bears this week and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues.
Posted: 10/12/2016 4:46pm ET
Huddle Up: Thomas should be able to play in Week 6 after giving his injury two weeks to heal. He has received at least five targets in each of the three games he has played this season and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.
Posted: 10/10/2016 5:13pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Thomas' practice participation this week to see if he will be able to play in Week 6. Thomas should have a favorable matchup this week against the Chicago Bears and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in leagues.
Posted: 10/4/2016 11:13am ET
Huddle Up: Thomas had a good thing going before suffering the injury in Week 3. Unfortunately for Thomas, the Bears have been one of the better fantasy defenses against tight ends this year. There are still two weeks until the Jaguars play, but it might be best to sit Thomas coming off the injury and in a tough matchup.
Posted: 10/2/2016 5:44am ET
Huddle Up: Marcedes Lewis will see targets but is far from a viable fantasy play this week. Look for more action coming the way of Allen Hurns, Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee.
Posted: 9/30/2016 12:56pm ET
Huddle Up: Thomas is being considered a game-time decision for Jacksonville's Week 4 tilt with the Colts. After managing just two catches for 13 yards in last week's effort, owners might want to consider using another tight end this week if there's another solid option on the roster, as Thomas could be playing limited. If he has to sit, Marcedes Lewis gets the biggest boost but his production is typically erratic and hard to trust.
Posted: 9/30/2016 7:16am ET
Huddle Up: Thomas has an 11-148-1 line through three games. He has a good matchup if he can suit up against the Indianapolis Colts, and Thomas would be a midrange TE1 candidate.
Posted: 9/29/2016 11:43am ET
Huddle Up: Thomas will be a game-time decision for the team's Week 4 game, so owners will need to check the inactive list before deciding on their lineups. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end if he is able to play.
Posted: 9/29/2016 10:14am ET
Huddle Up: Owners will have to be up early to find out Thomas' availability since the game is being played in London and will start at 9:30 a.m. EST. Thomas has played well in two of the three games this season and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues if he plays.
Posted: 9/28/2016 12:49pm ET
Huddle Up: Thomas is a low-end No. 1 tight end when healthy. He has received 17 targets through the first three games and turned them into 11 receptions, 148 receiving yards and a touchdown. You'll want to monitor his status leading into his Week 4 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. If Thomas misses the game or is limited, Mercedes Lewis projects to see an increased role in the offense and could be a potential low-priced flier in daily contests.
Posted: 9/26/2016 4:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to see if Thomas misses any practice time this week before deciding on their lineups. He was held in check in Week 3 but posted solid numbers in the first two games of the season. Thomas can be considered as a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues.
Posted: 9/16/2016 3:36pm ET
Huddle Up: Thomas is coming off a solid Week 1 performance where he recorded 64 yards and one touchdown. He should continue to have a role in the passing game and can be a starting option in deeper leagues.
Posted: 9/15/2016 2:28pm ET
Huddle Up: Thomas appears to be all systems go for Week 2 against the San Diego Chargers, who gave up a ton of yards and points to the Kansas City Chiefs last week. Thomas is in TE1 territory again as a legitimate threat to score in back-to-back weeks.
Posted: 9/12/2016 11:37am ET
Huddle Up: Here we go again? Thomas' lack of durability is well-chronicled, and his ankle problems are a big part of that. The artist formerly known as 'Orange Julius' played 56-of-74 snaps versus the Packers, so it would seem this particular injury isn't going to be a big deal. Assuming that is the case, consider him a low-end TE1 versus the San Diego Chargers in Week 2.
