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 to bounce back in 2017?

Miami Dolphins beat writer Armando Salguero believes tight end Julius Thomas "is going to be a thing this year" if his health remains intact.

Fantasy Impact

Salguero is adding that the Dolphins have a play set "just for [Thomas] him" in 2017, his first year with the club after being acquired via trade earlier in the offseason. The Dolphins have struggled at the tight end position in recent memory with Jordan Cameron their starter since 2015. However, Cameron is no longer with the club and the door is open for Thomas to be featured and bounce back after a disappointing two years in Jacksonville. Thomas compiled 24 touchdowns in Denver from 2013-2014 when Adam Gase, Miami's head coach, was an assistant there during the same timespan.
