New York Jets WR Kenbrell Thompkins (groin) was waived from the Reserve/Injured list with an injury settlement Monday, Sept. 12. He is expected to be healthy in a week or two.
Sat, 03 Sep 2016 10:22:53 -0700
The New York Jets have released FB Tommy Bohanon, TE Wes Saxton, WR Kenbrell Thompkins and WR Chandler Worthy.
Mon, 22 Aug 2016 16:56:23 -0700
New York Jets TE Jace Amaro (groin) and Kenbrell Thompkins (groin) did not practice Monday, Aug. 22.
Fantasy Tip: Amaro and Thompkins are both faint blips on the fantasy radar at this point. Neither should see heavy involvement in the Jets' offense. Amaro is a backup tight end option, but Thompkins can be avoided.
Sat, 30 Jul 2016 05:17:06 -0700
New York Jets WR Kenbrell Thompkins caught at least five passes from QB Ryan Fitzpatrick during practice Friday, July 29.
Fantasy Tip: Thompkins could receive a chance to compete for the No. 3 wide receiver job during training camp and is off to a good start. He caught 17 passes for 165 yards in 2015 and could have a bigger role this season. He probably can be avoided in most leagues but could be a waiver wire option during the season.
Thu, 21 Jul 2016 12:10:05 -0700
New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa currently has the inside track on being the No. 3 wide receiver. He will battle with WRs Kenbrell Thompkins, Jalin Marshall and Devin Smith (knee) for roster spots and playing time behind WRs Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.
Fantasy Tip: Marshall and Decker are both viable No. 2 receivers for your fantasy squad and also provide a reliable floor. There's a tremendous falloff after them, though. Additionally, there isn't a lot of fantasy value for the third receiver in the passing game, especially if tight end Jace Amaro reestablishes himself as a pass catcher. At this point, Enunwa and Thompkins are potential late-round fliers in deep leagues, but they are likely best left to the waiver wire. Marshall and Smith don't currently move the fantasy needle.
Wed, 15 Jun 2016 16:11:10 -0700
New York Jets WR Kenbrell Thompkins was excused from practice Wednesday, June 15, because of an undisclosed reason.
Fantasy Tip: Thompkins should have a decent chance to make the 53-man roster but likely will not have a big role in the passing game. Owners in all leagues can avoid Thompkins for now.
Mon, 14 Mar 2016 13:42:42 -0700
New York Jets restricted free-agent WR Kenbrell Thompkins signed his low tender Monday, March 14.
Fantasy Tip: Thompkins will have little fantasy value as long as Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker are healthy. Devin Smith, Quincy Enunwa and Chris Owusu should all cut into his opportunities for playing time, too. Keep him on waivers for now.
Thu, 10 Mar 2016 10:35:04 -0800
New York Jets restricted free-agent WR Kenbrell Thompkins was given a low tender Thursday, March 10.
Fantasy Tip: Thompkins had only 17 catches for 165 yards and no touchdowns in seven games for the Jets and was buried on their depth chart, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him depart. He'll likely remain receiver depth with a new team, though, and he has very minimal fantasy value.
Fri, 01 Jan 2016 11:10:51 -0800
New York Jets TE Kellen Davis (foot) didn't practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is questionable for Week 17. OT Breno Giacomini (ankle) was limited Friday and is also questionable. LB Calvin Pace (abdomen) and DE Muhammad Wilkerson (toe) were limited Friday and are probable. WR Kenbrell Thompkins (quadriceps, shin), WR Quincy Enunwa (neck), LB Demario Davis (wrist), LB Erin Henderson (illness), LB Lorenzo Mauldin (back) and CB Dee Milliner (hamstring) practiced in full and are probable.
Thu, 31 Dec 2015 11:49:54 -0800
New York Jets WRs Quincy Enunwa (neck) and Kenbrell Thompkins (quadriceps, shin) both practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 31.
Fantasy Tip: Enunwa ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Thompkins ($2,000) are overshadowed by Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall, but they could both be successful deep sleepers on FantasyScore if the Buffalo Bills try to shut down the Jets top two receivers.
Wed, 30 Dec 2015 15:34:54 -0800
New York Jets OT Breno Giacomini (ankle) and LB Erin Henderson (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Mon, 19 Oct 2015 18:47:04 -0700
The New York Jets promoted WR Kenbrell Thompkins from the practice squad to the active roster Monday, Oct. 19, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Thompkins will replace the suspended Quincy Enunwa, and just in time to face his former team, the New England Patriots. He has no FantasyScore appeal, but if an injury or two occurs he could see a bigger role down the road.
Wed, 30 Sep 2015 14:49:53 -0700
New England Patriots WR Kenbrell Thompkins was released from the practice squad Wednesday, Sept. 30.
Mon, 07 Sep 2015 09:23:41 -0700

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 14:34:57 -0700
Oakland Raiders WR Kenbrell Thompkins could be released if he does not perform well during training camp. Thompkins could be the team's No. 4 receiver if he makes the final roster.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor his work during the preseason to see if he is playing well. Thompkins probably should be passed on in drafts even if he does make the team.
Tue, 23 Jun 2015 18:13:39 -0700
Oakland Raiders WR Kenbrell Thompkins had a strong minicamp and he is expected to battle WR Andre Holmes for the No. 4 job during training camp and the preseason.
Fantasy Tip: Regardless which player emerges as the winner of the positional battle, both players will have minimal fantasy appeal in standard leagues unless injuries to one of the top three receivers opens up more responsibilities in the offense.
Fri, 07 Nov 2014 14:16:37 -0800
Oakland Raiders TE David Ausberry (foot), CB Chimdi Chekwa (hamstring), OG Gabe Jackson (knee) and CB Carlos Rogers (knee) have been ruled out for Week 10. CB Travis Carrie (ankle) is listed as questionable, while WR Vincent Brown (hamstring), CB Keith McGill (groin), RB Jamize Olawale (shoulder), WR Kenbrell Thompkins (non-injury) and DE Justin Tuck (knee) are listed as probable. Ausberry, Chekwa, Jackson, Rogers and Thompkins did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 7. Brown fully participated in practice, while the other players were limited.
Thu, 06 Nov 2014 15:29:11 -0800

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.
Sat, 04 Oct 2014 23:40:28 -0700
Assuming he clears waivers, free-agent WR Kenbrell Thompkins could be a candidate for the New England Patriots practice squad. Thompkins was released by New England on Saturday, Oct. 4.
Sat, 04 Oct 2014 14:13:39 -0700
The New England Patriots waived WR Kenbrell Thompkins Saturday, Oct. 4.
Fantasy Tip: Thompkins has a lot of talent and could be picked up off waivers by another team. In the right situation, he could be a fantasy asset. Stay tuned to see where he lands.
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.
Mon, 29 Sep 2014 16:05:09 -0700
The New England Patriots have declared WR Aaron Dobson, CB Alfonzo Dennard, DL Casey Walker, OT Jordan Devey, OL Josh Kline, WR Kenbrell Thompkins, DE Zach Moore inactive for Week 4.
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.
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.
Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:47:27 -0700
The New England Patriots have declared CB Alfonzo Dennard, RB James White, LB Jamie Collins, WR Kenbrell Thompkins, DL Michael Buchanan, C Ryan Wendell, DE Zach Moore inactive for Week 2.
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.
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.
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."
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.
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.
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.
Sat, 19 Jul 2014 09:25:43 -0700
New England Patriots WRs Josh Boyce and Kenbrell Thompkins are expected to receive the chance to compete for the kick return job during training camp.
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.
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.
Sun, 19 Jan 2014 11:26:06 -0800
The New England Patriots have declared OG Chris Barker, TE DJ Williams, DL Isaac Sopoaga, DL Jake Bequette, CB Justin Green, WR Kenbrell Thompkins, LB Steve Beauharnais inactive for Week 20.
Fri, 17 Jan 2014 18:01:34 -0800
New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (foot) and WR Kenbrell Thompkins (concussion, hip) traveled with the team for the AFC Championship game. Both are listed as questionable for the game.
Fri, 17 Jan 2014 12:44:06 -0800

Thu, 16 Jan 2014 13:42:03 -0800

Wed, 15 Jan 2014 13:49:58 -0800
New England Patriots LS Danny Aiken (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 15. WR Kenbrell Thompkins (concussion, hip), LB Dane Fletcher (groin), LB Dont'a Hightower (ankle), CB Kyle Arrington (groin), CB Alfonzo Dennard (knee, shoulder) and P Ryan Allen (shoulder) were limited during practice.
