Julius Thomas held to 27 yards on Broncos' Week 7 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Broncos tight end Julius Thomas caught four of his six targets for just 27 yards in his team's 42-17 win over the 49ers in Week 7.

Though Peyton Manning would throw four touchdowns en route to setting the career passing-touchdown mark, Thomas wasn't a part of the offensive explosion. It's the first time he's failed to score after racking up nine touchdowns in the team's first five games. He'll look to get back on track when the Broncos face the Chargers Thursday.

'It's too easy' for Julius Thomas
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Broncos tight end Julius Thomas put it best after scoring his second touching Week 6 at the Jets, shouting "it's too easy!" twice after catching a 4-yard pass from quarterback Peyton Manning midway through the third quarter.

He may have said it a little more colorfully the first time, but you get the idea: He thinks scoring touchdowns is easier than it should be, and you can certainly understand why. He already has nine in five games.

His other numbers in this game again wouldn't blow anyone away. He had four catches on six targets for 51 yards. But his size and strength makes him an ideal red-zone target for Manning, and with Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and Wes Welker already demanding so much of the defense's attention, it's just, well, "too easy."

As is assessing Thomas' Fantasy value, so I'm going to stop right now.

Broncos TE Julius Thomas adds TDs eight and nine Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Broncos tight end Julius Thomas only caught four passes Sunday against the host Jets, but he took two of them into the end zone. He has certainly been a frequent visitor.

Thomas became the first tight end in NFL history to rack up eight touchdowns in first five games when he snagged a 22-yarder with just 27 seconds left in the first half. He then made it nine with a 4-yard scoring toss from Peyton Manning midway throiugh the third quarter. He finished with 51 yards receiving.

He has scored at least one touchdown in every game this season and will seek to add another notch to his belt when the Broncos host San Francisco next Sunday.

Broncos' Julius Thomas facing fine for illegal chop block, league says
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The officiating crew made the "correct" call penalizing Broncos tight end Julius Thomas for chop blocking Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell in Week 5, according to NFL spokesman Michael Signora on Monday.

"The play was penalized because it was an illegal chop block, a violation of Rule 12, Section 2, Article 3 items c) and d)," Signora said, per ESPN. "The officials threw the flag for the 'reverse chop.' Thomas blocked Campbell 'in the area of the thigh or lower,' as specified by rule, and Clady engages Campbell high 'simultaneously or immediately after the block' by Thomas, resulting in the penalty. The play also violated part c) of the rule, known as a 'lure.' While Thomas chops Campbell, Clady 'confronts the defensive player in a pass-blocking posture but is not physically engaged with the defensive player.'"

Campbell suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain, which will likely keep him off the field for a few weeks. Arizona coach Bruce Arians called it the dirtiest play he's ever seen in his 37 years of coaching. Thomas is expected to be fined in the coming days by the league, according to Signora.
