Julius Thomas scores a touchdown for third straight week to give fantasy owners a boost

Julius Thomas continues to produce amid a high-octane Broncos offense, finding the end zone in his third straight game. We break down the fantasy implications.

Broncos tight end Julius Thomas caught three passes for 37 yards and a touchdown in the team's 37-21 win over the Raiders on Monday night.

It was another modest yardage and catch total for Thomas, who has yet to scratch the surface of his 110-yard performance in Week 1. However, Thomas' 13-yard touchdown reception marked his fourth score of the season, and the third straight game with a touchdown. With Wes Welker, Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas getting open with regularity, Peyton Manning did not often look in the direction of his check-down option.

Fantasy Spin: Thomas put together yet another nice week for his fantasy owners, who are getting a big return on their investment on a late-round draft pick. His touchdown numbers have cemented him in the upper echelon of the tight end ranks thus far, and there ought to be plenty more solid weeks for Thomas ahead. That will continue in Week 4 in a cushy matchup versus an improved but still patchy Eagles defense that will have its hands full.
