Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas caught six passes for 78 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 win over the Houston Texans. Thomas was the third most targeted receiver behind Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas with eight in the game. On the year, he has 60 receptions for 752 yards and twelve touchdowns. He is averaging 56.2 receiving yards per game.

Fantasy impact: Thomas will continue to be a TE1 throughout the playoffs as quarterback Peyton Manning shows no signs of slowing down. He is a must start across all fantasy leagues. The Texans are only giving up the nineteenth most fantasy points to tight ends but Manning and Thomas picked them apart. The Broncos will face the Oakland Raiders in Week 17. The Raiders are giving up the 23rd most fantasy points to tight ends.
