Injury Shoulder
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Thompson isn't going to light it up through the air as he only exceeded 200 yards passing on six occassions and never broke the 300 yards passing mark in 2019. Although he is a low volume passer, he does have some utility as a runner with 114 carries for 405 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. The Wildcats will return four of their top five pass-catchers, however, will have a young offensive line and inexperienced running backs which could mean that Thompson leans on his legs a bit more during the upcoming season.

Undergoes season-ending surgery
Shoulder
October 12, 2020
Kansas State head coach Chris Klieman said Monday that Thompson will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery last week to address a shoulder injury, Kellis Robinett of The Wichita Eagle reports.
ANALYSIS
Thompson started the Wildcats' first three games, completing 62.5 percent of his throws for 9.8 yards per attempt and a 4:0 TD:INT to go with 38 rushing yards and three more scores while guiding Kansas State to a 2-1 record. He exited the Wildcats' Oct. 3 win over Texas Tech with the shoulder injury and apparently avoided any broken bones, but the Kansas State medical staff ultimately decided that surgery was necessary. With Thompson officially shut down, Klieman said that Will Howard -- who started in Saturday's 21-14 win over TCU -- will remain atop the depth chart the rest of the season. A fourth-year senior, Thompson could opt for a redshirt, which would allow him to return to Kansas State for a fifth and final season in 2021.

Despite sitting atop the board at quarterback, Sam Ehlinger may be worth the salary versus a UTEP defense that allowed a 66.7 completion percentage to Stephen F. Austin and 8.2 yards per attempt last season.
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Entering the season as a confirmed starter, Thompson will showcase his dual-threat ability to new head coach Chris Klieman and offensive coordinator Courtney Messingham. A dual-threat quarterback is nothing new to Klieman and Messingham as they had Carson Wentz at North Dakota State. If Thompson can start the season like he ended last year with four total touchdowns against Iowa State, he will have a spot on fantasy rosters.
