Description: Oakland receiver Kenbrell Thompkins made his first significant contribution of the season with five receptions for 90 yards.
Insight: This one came out of nowhere and fantasy owners could not have expected it. Perhaps its a sign for next season.
 
10/4/2014 6:13:00 PM
Description: Patriots waive wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins.
Insight: New England promoted linebacker Ja'Gared Davis from the practice squad, so Thompkins was the player chosen to go. He was a healthy scratch the last two weeks as he fell behind Brandon LaFell and Danny Amendola. Since Thompkins caught that game-winning touchdown against the Saints last season, he has done virtually nothing in his NFL career.
 
9/14/2014 12:06:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Kenbrell Thompkins is inactive in Week 2.
Insight: Aaron Dobson is winning the battle of the back. Neither has fantasy value with Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Rob gronkowski healthy.
 
1/19/2014 1:59:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Kenbrell Thompkins won't suit up Sunday against the Broncos. He's out with a concussion.
Insight: Thompkins suffered the injury last Saturday in a win over Indianapolis. Aaron Dobson is back after missing time with a foot injury so the Patriots are essentially swapping one rookie wideout for the other.

Insight: Thompkins made it through a limited practice session on Wednesday, which gives him some hope for playing in Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Broncos. He's caught just nine passes since Week 7.
 
1/13/2014 9:33:00 AM
Description: Patriots wideout Kenbrell Thompkins left Saturday's game in the third quarter due to a head injury and did not return.
Insight: He had missed the previous three games with a hip injury. Thompkins is questionable for the AFC Championship against Denver. With Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Shane Vereen all healthy, Thompkins only sees a rare target or three and his fantasy value is minimal.

Description: New England rookie wideout Kenbrell Thompkins (hip) will not play Sunday against the Ravens, according to Mike Reiss of espnboston.com.
Insight: Thompkins will miss his third straight game. He has 32 receptions, 466 yards and four touchdowns in 11 games this season.
 
12/14/2013 8:19:00 PM
Description: New England rookie wideout Kenbrell Thompkins (hip) will miss a second straight game Sunday against the Dolphins.
Insight: The Patriots will be without Thompkins, Aaron Dobson (foot) and Rob Gronkowski (knee) Sunday, leaving Julian Edelman and Shane Vereen as Tom Brady's top targets.
 
12/8/2013 12:07:00 PM
Description: New England rookie wideout Kenbrell Thompkins won't be active for Sunday's game against the Browns.
Insight: Thompkins is out with a hip injury. Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski should see most of the targets with Thompkins and Aaron Dobson both sidelined. Danny Amendola and Shane Vereen should be involved in the passing game also.
 
12/1/2013 1:42:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Kenbrell Thompkins went to the locker room in the second quarter Sunday against the Texans and is questionable to return.
Insight: He's dealing with a hip injury, according to Mike Reiss of espnboston.com. With Aaron Dobson already inactive, Josh Boyce may need to play an expanded role.
 
11/3/2013 3:14:00 PM
Description: Patriots rookie receiver Kenbrell Thompkins is a healthy inactive in Week 9.
Insight: Thompkins has caught 23 of the 56 passes thrown his way for 334 yards and four touchdowns in eight games this season. His absence will make Aaron Dobson a safer play Sunday against the Steelers.
 
9/11/2013 9:28:00 PM
Description: The Boston Globe says that Patriots rookie receiver Kenbrell Thompkins was "pretty awful in several areas" in Week 1, "showing very little awareness."
Insight: Thompkins caught just four of his 14 targets, double-clutched his catches, slipped multiple times and twice was unable to get his second foot in bounds for a catch. He also made a diving catch on a slant that would have been a touchdown if he stayed on his feet and ran the wrong route on the goal line that led to a sack. However, with Shane Vereen, Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola all out for Thursday's game against the Jets, Tom Brady won't have anyone to throw to besides Julian Edelman and Thompkins.
 
Hot8/23/2013 1:35:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Kenbrell Thompkins caught eight balls for 116 yards in New England's 40-9 exhibition loss to Detroit.
Insight: Thompkins continues to get work with Brady and the first team. The undrafted rookie certainly has emerged as someone to grab in fantasy drafts as the Patriots search for a No. 3 receiving option after Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski.
 
8/14/2013 12:05:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Kenbrell Thompkins continues to get reps with the first team and could be in the lead for the slot receiving role when the season begins.
Insight: The undrafted rookie certainly has emerged as someone to grab late in fantasy drafts as the Patriots search for a No. 3 receiving option after Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski. He should be monitored closely over the next two exhibition games to see if Tom Brady continues to show confidence in his young receiver.
 
8/10/2013 3:08:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Kenbrell Thompkins (4 receptions for 23 yards) appeared to be in sync with QB Tom Brady and the quarterback threw the ball his way frequently in their short time on the field.
Insight: The undrafted rookie certainly has emerged as someone to grab late in fantasy drafts as the Patriots search for a No. 3 receiving option after Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski.
 
8/7/2013 8:46:00 PM
Description: According to the Boston Herald, Patriots receiver Kenbrell Thompkins has consistently been on the same page with QB Tom Brady.
Insight: The Herald says that Thompkins has "continued to stand out as a solid possession receiver with vertical skills." The undrafted rookie certainly has emerged as someone to grab late in fantasy drafts as the Patriots search for a No. 3 receiving option after Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski.
 
7/28/2013 9:03:00 PM
Description: According to the Boston Globe, Patriots undrafted rookie receiver Kenbrell Thompkins was impressive the last two days of training camp and earned repetitions with the starting unit.
Insight: Robert Burgess of the Globe said Thompkins has been "catching everything that comes his way." The Patriots are searching for receiving options behind Danny Amendola, and rookies Aaron Dobson and Thompkins are leading the way so far. Michael Jenkins' roster spot is in jeopardy.
 
7/21/2013 9:06:00 PM
Description: According to ESPN Boston, Patriots undrafted rookie Kenbrell Thompkins' strong work in the spring likely was one of the factors behind Donald Jones' release Friday.
Insight: Thompkins has a few things working against him -- he will turn 25 on July 29, had modest college production and runs a 4.54 40-yard dash -- but the Patriots are also looking for receiving targets to step up.
 
1/13/2013 9:33:00 AM
Description: Patriots wideout Kenbrell Thompkins left Saturday's game in the third quarter due to a head injury and did not return.
Insight: He had missed the previous three games with a hip injury. Thompkins is questionable for the AFC Championship against Denver. With Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Shane Vereen all healthy, Thompkins only sees a rare target or three and his fantasy value is minimal.
