Dolphins' Julius Thomas: Returns from back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (back) caught his only target for a two-yard gain in Thursday's preseason game against the Ravens.

Though he didn't get a target from starter Jay Cutler, the veteran tight end at least proved he's recovered from the back injury that caused him to miss practice time earlier in the week. Thomas may only be fourth or fifth in line for targets on a team featuring the impressive wideout trio of Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills.

Dolphins' Julius Thomas: Experiencing back tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas is currently dealing with back tightness, Charles Trainor Jr. of the Miami Herald reports.

Thomas missed Monday's practice session due to the discomfort, but fortunately it doesn't sound like something that'll keep him out long. His status still appears to be in question for Thursday's preseason game against the Ravens, though, as the Dolphins only figure to play Thomas if he's fully recovered.

Dolphins' Julius Thomas: Misses practice with back issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas was held out of Monday's practice due to a back injury, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

It appears Thomas is being viewed as day-to-day for the time being, but if the injury keeps him out of practice Tuesday, he'll be at greater risk of missing Thursday's preseason tilt with the Ravens. Thomas still shapes up as the Dolphins' top tight end, but after back-to-back disappointing seasons with the Jaguars, he shouldn't be viewed as much more than a middle-tier fantasy option at the position, especially now that he has the disadvantage of familiarizing himself with a new playbook.

Dolphins' Julius Thomas: Still working out kinks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas' apparent lack of chemistry with quarterback Ryan Tannehill was a disappointing takeaway from offseason practice sessions, Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel reports.

Thomas was traded to Miami this offseason after catching just 30 passes for 281 yards and four touchdowns in nine games for the Jaguars last year. While that marked Thomas' worst production since his 2011 rookie year, it was also his second straight underwhelming campaign since Jacksonville signed him to a five-year, $46 million contract. Of course, that deal was the reward for back-to-back 12-touchdown campaigns in Denver, which put Thomas at the forefront of fantasy radars at the time. In reuniting with then-Broncos offensive coordinator and now-Dolphins head coach Adam Gase, Thomas seems to have a decent chance of rebounding this season, but indications that he's yet to establish a consistent rapport with Tannehill raises some concern whether that will happen.

Dolphins' Julius Thomas: Red-zone threat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins plan to use Thomas in the red zone much more frequently than Jacksonville did, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Adam Gase coached Thomas when he scored 24 touchdowns over two seasons with Denver and plans once again to take advantage of his skills in the red zone. While a return to those glory days would seem unlikely, Thomas should reach paydirt more than the nine times he did with the Jaguars over the past two seasons.
