Analyzing Julius Thomas' Long-Term Fantasy Value in 2013 After Week 5
Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas was at it again in Week 5 as his team took on the woeful Dallas Cowboys defense.
Thomas was the Broncos' leading receiver after he brought in nine receptions for 122 yards and two touchdowns before the halfway point of the third quarter.
It's business as usual for Thomas with Denver, a team that touts an offensive attack led by Peyton Manning that scores well over 40 points per game.
Thomas is perhaps the biggest beneficiary of the offense after contributing little in his first two years in the league. While defenses have been focused on Wes Welker, Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas this season, Thomas has torched the opposition for over 300 yards and six scores in hardly five games.
Easily a No. 1 fantasy tight end, Thomas' production is not going anywhere. Sunday marked just his second time over 100 yards in a game this season, but unless owners have a guy named Jimmy from New Orleans on their roster, better consistency at the position is hard to find.
When the going's good, not many are better than Thomas. He's worth the risk in a starting lineup each week no matter what defense he lines up against.
