Thomas totaled 49 yards and was held scoreless in the tilt but again proved that there is virtually no one who can cover him.

Fantasy Impact: The TE1 may have had a limited night but that is more of the give and take of the game flow than anything else. He will remain a TE1 for every game and can be counted on to produce on a weekly basis.

Thomas had 4 receptions on 6 targets for the game. A CBS mic caught him screaming "it's so easy" after his second touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: Thomas is creeping into consideration as the top TE in the NFL. 20 TD's are realistic on the season in the Peyton Manning express. Owners have zero concerns and can just relax and watch the best play this season out.

Targeted 7 times, Thomas caught 6 passes for 66 yards and 2 touchdowns in the game today with the Cardinals.

Denver has a lot of targets, but the limited use of Julius Thomas today was surprising. He caught 3 passes for 17 yards and a TD.

Fantasy Impact: A lot of people were expecting a bigger role for Thomas in today's game, especially after Antonio Gates success last week against the Legion of Boom, but it was like he was an afterthought in the game plan. Rest assured that Thomas is an elite, proven talent and that his time for stat building will come. After next weeks bye, Denver plays the Cardinals, and that defense has no answer for someone like Julius Thomas.

Julius Thomas had 5 targets, 4 receptions and a TD against the Chiefs Sunday.

Julius Thomas had 7 receptions for 104 yards, along with 3 touchdowns in Sunday night's game against the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: He led Denver in receiving and is set to have a great year. His talent is elite and he is a must start every week in all formats. The tight end enjoys a mismatch on defense almost every week and will not disappoint his owners this year.

Fantasy Impact: Thomas is an elite tight end in the same class as Graham and Gronkowski. He is difficult to cover and is a favorite of Peyton Manning in that high-octane offense in Denver. He is a must start, every week, in all formats.

Julius Thomas caught 4 passes for 32 yards in the game against the Texans.

Fantasy Impact: This is his contract year and with Eric Decker gone and Wes Welker's concussion issues, Thomas is set for a big year. Fantasy players should grab Thomas in drafts and never look back. It's going to be a wild year in Denver.
