Julius Thomas continues successful fantasy football season against Colts

Andy Lyons

The breakout season continues for Orange Julius.

Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas continued his breakout season on Sunday Night Football in a 39-33, Week 7 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

Thomas caught five of his six targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in the game. With the amount of receivers Peyton Manning has to work with, it can be tough for Thomas to get targets, but he makes the most of the passes that come his way. He now has seven touchdowns on the season, which is the fifth most in a single season in Broncos history. Shannon Sharpe holds the record with 10 touchdowns in a single season, but Thomas is on pace to best that total in 2013.

Fantasy spin: After going undrafted in most leagues, Thomas has become a fantasy football star at the tight end position.

Obviously if you own Thomas, he is a must-start going forward as long as Manning continues to play as well as he has.
