Rotoworld updates:

Appearing on GameDay Morning, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported it's "not looking good" for Julius Thomas (knee) to play Sunday night against the Patriots.
Thomas will work out this morning, and the Broncos are expected to make a decision on him then. The Denver Post calls him 50-50 to play, leaving Orange Julius as a full-blown game-time decision. Fantasy owners need to have a backup plan in place. You can start by picking up Joel Dreessen, who would draw the start for the Broncos if Thomas can't play. Keep it locked here for updates.
The Denver Post believes the Broncos will turn to Joel Dreessen and Jacob Tamme to "pick up the slack" if Julius Thomas (knee, questionable) is inactive for Week 12 at New England.
Virgil Green would be the No. 3 tight end and handle "plenty of playing time" if the sub-favorable weather conditions "cause the Broncos to try and run the ball more than they would like." Dreessen would draw the start and be the best bet for a red-zone score, so we'd start him if forced to choose from the trio. Tamme would probably run the most pass routes, but has never been a big part of Denver's passing game even dating back in 2012, when he was a starter.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports Julius Thomas (questionable, knee) would need a "miracle" to convince the Broncos to let him play on Sunday Night Football against New England.
Thomas should be penciled out of fantasy lineups in tonight's latest game. Look for Joel Dreessen to play the most snaps among Denver tight ends, with Jacob Tamme seeing some action on passing downs and Virgil Green playing in three-tight end jumbo packages. Thomas practiced twice this week, albeit on a limited basis, so it sounds like he should only miss one game.
