Julius Thomas expects to have discomfort in hand

Saturday, July 30, 2016, 3:32pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Jags TE Julius Thomas has accepted the fact that he may always have some slight pain in his right hand whenever he catches a football.

He dealt with it all of last season after suffering a fractured bone in the back of his hand in the Jacksonville Jaguars' first preseason game. The pain was significantly worse when he did get back on the field in Week 5, but he played through it, so a minor ache now is no problem.

"I don’t know if everything always goes back [to the way it was before the injury]," Thomas said Saturday after the Jaguars’ third training camp practice. "I’ve learned how to do everything I need to do."

Fantasy Impact:

It will not impact the way he plays, the story said, and he’s looking forward to continuing to develop chemistry with quarterback Blake Bortles. He said that was going well during OTAs, minicamp and the beginning of training camp last season before the injury, after which it took him a while to find his way back into the offense. We have Thomas as a top-10 option among our TEs.

Scouting Report

2016 Fantasy Outlook
Thomas missed four games in his first season in Jacksonville, but still managed 79 targets (the second-best total of his career). Still, he didn't come anywhere near matching his Denver days in catching just 46 passes for 455 yards and five scores. With a year in the Jaguars system under his belt, Thomas should be better. He's currently being taken as the No. 11 tight end with an ADP of 98. That sound about right for a player whose value has always been tied into his scoring after back-to-back 12 TD seasons in 2013 and 2014. It's doubtful he approaches that in Jacksonville, but he should at least catch more passes this year.
