Admit it, before Thursday night you couldn't pick Broncos tight end Julius Thomas out of a lineup (in related news…). That probably has something to do with the fact that Thomas had appeared in just four games the last two seasons and had registered a whopping one career reception.
Oh, and before his coming out party against the Ravens in the 2013 opener that included four catches for 97 yards and 2 touchdowns before halftime, he was best known for playing basketball at Portland St. with quite possibly the tightest wig we've seen in some time.
More proof that Thomas will be a thing going forward:

But before you rush out and add Thomas to your fantasy team, this is probably worth remembering:
