Fantasy Football Tight Ends: Top 10 You Should Target In 2014

At #2 is Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas. After not seeing the field much his first two seasons, Thomas made a big impact for the Broncos in 2013, scoring 12 touchdowns on the way to the Super Bowl.

Thomas was a stud throughout the season, finishing in the top three in receiving yards and touchdowns for Denver. That is no easy task for a team that spreads the ball around as much as the Broncos do.

It’s hard not to love a player like Thomas. The former college basketball player out of Portland State has the hands to make just about every catch thrown his direction, and the big body to mow down anybody in his way.

And to make it even better, Thomas has arguably the greatest regular season quarterback of all time throwing his way in Peyton Manning. The Broncos are a pass-happy team, so Manning will be slinging it almost ever play.

While Denver has a plethora of receivers between Wes Welker, Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, there is no doubt in my mind that Julius Thomas will get his fair share. Look for Julius Thomas to finish with 12 or more touchdowns again this season, with a chance for even more.
