Julius Thomas gets full practice Thursday, set to make return for fantasy owners

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Thomas was upgraded to a full practice on Thursday and is on track to play Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thoams was upgraded to full on Thursday's practice report. He got in a limited session on Wednesday.

The news means that Thomas is almost certain to suit up for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans. He suffered a knee injury in Week 12 and was held out of last week's win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Despite his loss, Peyton Manning did just fine, tossing four touchdowns to Eric Decker. Thomas is enjoying a breakout year, grabbing 45 catches for 590 yards and 10 touchdowns in 10 games this season.

Fantasy impact: As expected, Thomas' knee sprain won't be a multi-week issue. He's back on the TE1 radar and will be a valuable piece for the fantasy playoffs. Thomas doesn't see a lot of targets in Denver's offense, but he's Manning's favorite red zone weapon. At worst, he might be listed as questionable on Friday, but fantasy owners can safely put him back in their lineups.
