Raiders | Excited about Kenbrell Thompkins

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 20:25:53 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Kenbrell Thompkins has fans in interim head coach Tony Sparano and QB Derek Carr. Sparano said Wednesday, Oct. 8, that Thompkins is a "big kid that can run" and "hard worker who wants to know everything."

Fantasy Tip: Thompkins fell out of favor with the New England Patriots, but he has a real chance to stand out in Oakland on a roster which does not feature many stars at the wide receiver position. Wait until he gets a grasp of the playbook before using a spot in FantasyScore leagues, however.

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 13:11:37 -0700

The Oakland Raiders claimed WR Kenbrell Thompkins off waivers from the New England Patriots Monday, Oct. 6, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known how much playing time Thompkins will receive with the Raiders. Owners should hold off on using Thompkins until they see how he is used in the offense.

Patriots | Kenbrell Thompkins not injured

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 16:37:37 -0700

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Kenbrell Thompkins was on the inactive list for the Week 4 game against the Kansas City Chiefs Monday, Sept. 29, but he is a healthy scratch.

Fantasy Tip: Thompkins had a big role last season, but he has clearly fallen out of favor. Fantasy owners need not pay him any mind unless injuries open up a role for him on game day.

Patriots | Kenbrell Thompkins active

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 08:50:19 -0700

New England Patriots WR Kenbrell Thompkins is active for the Week 3 game Sunday, Sept. 21. WR Aaron Dobson is a healthy scratch for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Thompkins ($3,700; 7.4% of your cap) is a bare-minimum flex option on FantasyScore this week. The offense spreads the ball around a lot, which makes him a potential diamond in the rough today. Keep in mind, though, that he is the fifth option at best.

Patriots | Kenbrell Thompkins will not play

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:06:22 -0700

New England Patriots WR Kenbrell Thompkins has been declared inactive for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Thompkins is a healthy scratch this week despite catching five passes for 37 yards in Week 1. Julian Edelman is probably the only Patriots receiver to use in lineups this week and costs $5,400 at FantasyScore.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson a healthy scratch

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 16:17:01 -0700

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson was a healthy inactive for Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins. WRs Kenbrell Thompkins and Brandon LaFell both had great training camps, and TE Tim Wright gives the team more options to run the ball in two-tight end sets. It means that the Patriots don't think Dobson has caught Thompkins or LaFell on the depth chart yet.

Patriots | Josh Boyce well behind others

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 22:41:55 -0700

New England Patriots WR Josh Boyce did not play an offensive snap until there was 1:26 remaining in the third quarter of the preseason game Friday, Aug. 22, against the Carolina Panthers. He is considered to be decisively behind WRs Kenbrell Thompkins, Aaron Dobson (foot), Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Brandon LaFell on the depth chart.

Patriots | Tom Brady praises Kenbrell Thompkins

Sat, 16 Aug 2014 06:18:21 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady praised WR Kenbrell Thompkins for a touchdown catch he made in the team's second preseason game. "A great catch," Brady said, later praising Thompkins' instincts. "I've got so much confidence in him and what he's been able to do, and continue to achieve for us. So hopefully there will be a lot more of those."

Patriots | No. 3 WR battle heating up

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 21:23:35 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell and Kenbrell Thompkins each posted touchdown grabs in the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Friday, Aug. 15. LaFell was targeted three times, catching two for 29 yards and the score, while Thompkins had three receptions for 32 yards and a touchdown while being targeted four times.

Fantasy Tip: The two are battling for the No. 3 job, although each figure to be a major part of the offense no matter how things shake down. Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola haven't exactly been the picture of health over their careers, so LaFell and Thompkins are likely to see a start of two during the season. A late-round flier on each wouldn't be a bad idea on draft day.

Patriots | Kenbrell Thompkins does not finish practice

Sat, 26 Jul 2014 19:00:03 -0700

New England Patriots WR Kenbrell Thompkins (undisclosed) was not able to finish practice Saturday, July 26, after he slid on the ground during the later portions of practice. The training staff tried to stretch him out after the injury. It does not appear to be a serious injury.

Patriots | Kenbrell Thompkins standing out

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 15:52:38 -0700

New England Patriots WR Kenbrell Thompkins has stood out through two days of training camp practices, catching several diving balls along the way.

Fantasy Tip: This is encouraging news, specifically showing Thompkins and QB Tom Brady are getting on the same page after a shaky rookie year for the receiver. Thompkins is a WR4 fantasy gamble, whose upside could return WR2 stats.

Patriots | Kenbrell Thompkin, Josh Boyce not locks to make team

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 12:12:13 -0700

New England Patriots WRs Kenbrell Thompkins and Josh Boyce may not have proven enough to earn the team's fifth wide receiver spot, according to a source. They both struggled as rookies and New England brought in WR Brandon LaFell and drafted WR Jeremy Gallon for competition.

Fantasy Tip: If Thompkins and Boyce may not even make the Patriots' final roster, then they sure shouldn't be considered for your final roster. The only instance where they might have any semblance of value is if Danny Amendola, Aaron Dobson or Julian Edelman miss time.

Patriots | Two WRs may compete for one spot

Thu, 20 Mar 2014 18:08:07 -0700

New England Patriots WRs Kenbrell Thompkins and Josh Boyce could compete for one roster spot during training camp. The team could consider keeping both receivers if one can become a strong special teams player.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins expected to play

Fri, 20 Dec 2013 12:06:36 -0800

New England Patriots WRs Aaron Dobson (foot) and Kenbrell Thompkins (hip) are both expected to return in Week 16 against the Baltimore Ravens. An official announcement on whether they will play will come Saturday, Dec. 21, after they go through a medical check. WR Josh Boyce (ankle) hasn't practiced all week and will not play this weekend. However, Boyce's injury doesn't look to be too serious.

Fantasy Tip: There is more opportunity in the Patriots' offense with Rob Gronkowski out, but both Dobson and Thompkins are tough to predict. It wouldn't be very wise to rely on either this weekend. If you must, consider them both flex plays in deeper leagues.
