Jaguars Beat: TE Julius Thomas is team's 'best player'

Florida Times Union - [Full Article]

Julius Thomas is the Jaguars’ best player.

Shocker, right? The way he moved around the practice field this month was unlike any player of the Caldwell-Bradley Era. For a franchise that’s been without difference making players, Thomas checks that important box.

If Thomas wasn’t leaping to catch a Blake Bortles catch down the seam — with a linebacker trailing him, he was running a post pattern to catch a Bortles offering — with a safety scrambling to cover him.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's not shocking, but maybe a bit surprising. Thomas was a very productive tight end in Denver, but we're worried about the quarterback and offense downgrade to Blake Bortles and Jacksonville. He should offer at least baseline fantasy TE1 numbers, but we're dubious about a top 5 finish.
