There used to be a notion that Thomas was a borderline superstar tight end and everyone is just waiting for that to come back. Did you know, however, that he has never eclipsed 800 receiving yards in a season? Brandon Myers and a 35 year old Ben Watson have both managed that in the past five seasons. The reason for Thomas' fame is the 24 TDs Peyton threw to him so don't find yourself buying too much into the hype.

Julius Thomas already knows Gase offense

Julius Thomas played for Adam Gase four seasons in Denver before he left for Jacksonville. He knows Gase's offense well, so even though this is his first year with the Dolphins, he expects a smooth transition. Thomas worked with Ryan Tannehill in the offseason to fast track their on-field chemistry. “The chemistry between those two guys in the passing game, I feel like is pretty good, and those two have confidence in it,” Gase said.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas looks to be TE1 going into the season. Potential owners of Jarvis Landry should keep an eye on Thomas' role on the team especially in red-zone situations during the preseason. Landry's reception totals may take a hit if Thomas can come close to resembling the TE Jacksonville lured from Denver.
