The Jacksonville Jaguars don't have many fantasy football studs on the offensive side of the ball, but they do have a wide receiver who gets an unusually high amount of targets. Wide receiver Mike Thomas should be a decent fantasy play as a WR3 or in deeper fantasy leagues. He currently is getting roughly half of the passing target for the Jaguars.

The number evened out a bit last week with rookie Blaine Gabbert throwing the ball 42 times, but Thomas still got the majority of the looks. He's easily the best receiver on the roster, and outside of tight end Marcedes Lewis really the only threat in the passing game. Thomas isn't going to gobble up receiving yards or touchdowns, but if you're in a deeper points per reception league (PPR) he should net you decent points as a back end roster guy. Thomas is currently tied for ninth in the NFL in receptions and I don't expect that to slow down.
