    Free-agent TE Julius Thomas (Dolphins) could be an option for the Los Angeles Chargers because of TE Hunter Henry's (knee) injury, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Eric D. Williams.

    Huddle Up: Thomas has dealt with injuries during his career and is coming off a quiet 2017 season where he finished with 388 yards and three touchdowns. He would only be a No. 2 fantasy tight end if he signs with the Chargers.

  • Posted: 3/14/2018 1:36pm ET

    The Miami Dolphins released TE Julius Thomas on Wednesday, March 14. He was due to make $6.5 million in 2018, with $2 million guaranteed. If the contract contains offset language, the team will get dollar-for-dollar credit if/when he lands with another organization.

    Huddle Up: Thomas had two huge seasons with back-to-back 12-touchdown campaigns in Denver from 2013-14. He parlayed that into big money with stops in Jacksonville in Miami over the past two seasons. However, he has been unable to reproduced that success, totaling 12 scores from 2015-17. He'll likely get a chance elsewhere, but take a wait-and-see approach with him as far as fantasy is concerned in 2018.

  • Posted: 2/22/2018 1:17pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas will be released this offseason, according to sources. The team will save $6.6 million in salary cap space with the move.

    Huddle Up: Thomas was able to play in 14 games this season and finished with 388 yards and three touchdowns. He may be able to find a starting job with a team this offseason but should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy running back.

  • Posted: 2/7/2018 3:12pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas is expected to be released this offseason.

    Huddle Up: Thomas was able to play in 14 games this season and finished with 388 yards and three touchdowns. He could find another starting job if becomes a free agent this offseason but would not be more than a No. 2 fantasy tight end.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 4:59pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas posted two catches for 15 yards on four targets in Week 15 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Thomas did a disappearing act over the past two games, posting four grabs and 26 yards over his past two games. After looking like he was going to re-emerge as a solid fantasy option in early November he is back to the waiver wire in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/11/2017 9:37pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas finished with two catches on four targets for only 11 yards in the team's Week 14 win Monday, Dec. 11, against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Uh oh. Throughout the first two months of his debut season in Miami, Thomas was a disaster but finally gained some steam after an impressive showing in November, in which he collected his first two touchdowns of the campaign. He added another one last week, but this was a complete dud for those who were finally buying into the 29-year-old. It looks like he's back to TE2 status for the remainder of the fantasy postseason.

  • Posted: 12/2/2017 7:50pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas has logged at least 30 receiving yards in three of the last four games after reaching 30 receiving yards just once in his first seven games.

    Huddle Up: If you need tight end help, Thomas could be worth streaming in Week 13 against a Denver Broncos defense that has allowed the likes of Tyler Kroft and Dwayne Allen to score in recent weeks.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 4:40pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas picked up five receptions for 52 yards on six targets in Week 12 against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Thomas has been a bigger part of the offensive attack lately, posting four or more receptions in three of the past four outings, at two or more grabs in seven in a row and 10 of 11 overall. He is still more of a TE2 in most fantasy leagues due to his middling yardage totals.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 5:38pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas posted four receptions for 30 yards in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Thomas has enjoyed his most productive stretch of the season over the past three games, hauling in 12 balls for 122 yards and two touchdowns on 17 targets. He is still more of a low-end TE1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more yards, and it remains to be seen if he'll have the same rapport with Matt Moore as he did with Jay Cutler, should the latter be sidelined due to concussion.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 7:50am ET

    The Miami Dolphins are likely to cut TE Julius Thomas during the offseason in order to clear up $6.6 million in salary cap space for 2018, barring an incredible final two months of the 2017 season.

    Huddle Up: The 29-year-old Thomas has 25 receptions for 260 yards and two touchdowns through nine games this year. He shouldn't be owned outside of deeper seasonal fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/13/2017 9:37pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas scored a touchdown for the second straight week -- after having none previously in the first seven games -- in the team's Week 10 loss Monday, Nov. 13, versus the Carolina Panthers. He finished the game with two catches for eight yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Although his stats outside of the touchdown were not pretty, it's still encouraging that Thomas has garnered five or more targets in consecutive games for the first time all season. Clearly, Jay Cutler is looking his way more, and that could vault Thomas back onto the TE1 radar. However, given how disappointing he was prior to the last two weeks, he's still mainly a streaming option in standard formats for now.

  • Posted: 11/6/2017 5:46am ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas caught six balls for 84 yards and a touchdown Sunday, Nov. 5, against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: He had a 17-168-0 line entering the game and can't be trusted beyond a backup in fantasy.

  • Posted: 10/26/2017 9:40pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas caught two passes for two yards in Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: Any hopes that were raised by Thomas' 58-yard output in Week 7 were dashed just as quickly Thursday night. During the broadcast Tony Romo noted the team preferred Anthony Fasano on the field for his attention to detail, which isn't good news for Thomas' long-term prospects, either. He's probably not worth owning outside of larger leagues.

  • Posted: 10/25/2017 3:10pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 25, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Thomas has been targeted 13 times over the last three games, but it is not known if his role with change with Matt Moore as the quarterback. Owners may want to see his performance this week before considering him a starting option.

  • Posted: 10/24/2017 2:40pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas (knee) practiced in full Tuesday, Oct. 24.

    Huddle Up: Thomas has done next to nothing through the first seven weeks of the season. His fortunes may change with Matt Moore under center, but don't banking on him to rebound just like that is a fool's hope.

  • Posted: 10/23/2017 1:15pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas (knee) was limited during practice Monday, Oct. 23. The Dolphins did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Thomas is coming off his best game of the season with 58 yards and has been targeted at least five times in each of the last five games. He can be owned in deeper leagues but should not be a starting option this week.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 6:27pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas managed three catches for 58 yards on four targets in Week 7 against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Thomas heads into Week 8 against the Ravens still searching for his first touchdown of the season. He remains more of a TE2 fantasy option despite the season high in yardage.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 9:56am ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas caught two passes for 29 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Thomas was expected to have success in the offense since he has played for Adam Gase before, but he only has eight receptions and 71 yards in the first three games. Thomas can be owned in deeper leagues but should not be in the starting lineup next week.

  • Posted: 9/14/2017 11:11am ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas has improved his chemistry with QB Jay Cutler over the last few weeks and has caught several touchdowns during practice.

    Huddle Up: Thomas has been a productive player when he has been on the field but has dealt with injuries that have hurt his value over the years. It appears like he will have a big role in the red zone this season and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end because of his touchdown potential.

  • Posted: 8/14/2017 6:39am ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas (back) is out of practice Monday, Aug. 14.

    Huddle Up: The oft-injured tight end could still be a useful backup in fantasy, but his ceiling is pretty low compared to where it once was.
