Tough matchup not a concern for Julius Thomas
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Broncos tight end Julius Thomas opens the season with a difficult matchup: Indianapolis allowed the fewest Fantasy points to tight ends (5.33 per game) last year.

It's not a concern for Thomas, one of three tight ends to catch a touchdown against the Colts in 2013. In Week 7 at Indy, Thomas caught five of six targets for 41 yards and the score.

That was one of 12 touchdowns Thomas scored in his breakout season. The 26-year-old showed he's not satisfied by taking a diligent offseason approach, according to the Denver Post.

"He's going to be a very special player," former Broncos tight end Joel Dreessen said. "It was fun to watch him grow up last season. In this offseason, he really impressed me with his attitude and work ethic and how hungry he was."

Thomas drew 17 red-zone targets last year. With Eric Decker's departure, the 6-5, 250-pound Thomas should see a few more this season. He's a top-3 play Sunday night.

Julius Thomas a matchup nightmare
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Broncos tight end Julius Thomas abused the 49ers' secondary Sunday, catching three passes for 35 yards and a touchdown in just over a quarter of work. All three of his grabs came on Denver's second drive.

After a 19-yard catch over the middle and a screen that went nowhere, Thomas got behind safety Craig Dahl for an easy 17-yard touchdown.

Thomas scored 12 touchdowns last year despite missing two games.

Broncos to continue contract negotiations into training camp
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Broncos hae made contract-extension offers to wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and tight end Julius Thomas and are prepared to continue negotiations into training camp, USA Today reports.

"Nothing is going to get done before camp, but we'll keep talking to them in camp," general manager John Elway said Wednesday.

Both players are entering the final year of their rookie deals. Elway indicated he won't break off talks with either player until early August. Elway indicated that Julius Thomas won't receive an offer that matches the record deal received by Saints tight end Jimmy Graham.

"Even though Julius had a tremendous year for us, he's only (played) 23 games. We want Julius to be a Bronco for a long time and we think he has tremendous upside, but he's not at that level," Elway said.

Julius Thomas says he'll be used more creatively
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Broncos tight end Julius Thomas told FOXSports.com that the team plans on using him "a lot more creatively" in 2014, one season after his breakout season with the team. 

"I think there are a lot of things that our offense wanted to do with me, but you can only learn so much in one year," Thomas explained. "No matter how much time you have at practice, it never seems to be enough when you're learning and trying to come into your own.

Thomas said he's still "scratching the surface" on what he's able to contribute, adding that he's just now getting comfortable with what's being asked of him. 

Thomas racked up 65 catches for 788 yards and 10 touchdowns last season.

Julius Thomas claims he's still learning
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Julius Thomas racked up 65 catches for 788 yards and 10 touchdowns in his breakout season for the Broncos in 2013, but he told NFL.com that he really didn't have a good feel for what he was doing until this offseason

"Last year, I was able to do a lot of good things. I kind of survived on self-confidence and athleticism," Thomas said. "In one game, the defense did something, and Peyton was like, 'Julius, did you see that?' And I said, 'Peyton, they got me; I had no clue what they were doing.' There are still situations I haven't been in before, and I'm still learning what to do."
