RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

In Thompson's four years in the NFL, he's had 17 receptions for 228 yards. In his first season with the Bears last year, he managed two receptions for 81 yards. With such meager production, Thompson is expected to begin 2016 as a backup to Kevin White at outside receiver. Overall, Thompson's biggest value to the team is his ability as a kick returner, with his 29.2 yard average placing him second in the NFL last year among those with at least 10 returns.

2015

Thompson is a young veteran who has had very brief flashes of potential in his four years in the NFL. He is just hoping to latch onto a roster spot and is unlikely to make any kind of an impact on the Bills' offense in 2015.

2014

Thompson is on the roster bubble, and the Ravens have four wide receivers who are seemingly locks to make the team. The former Florida Gator does have experience returning kicks, but the Ravens still have Jacoby Jones as the likely kick and punt returner.

2013

Thompson is a pure burner with 4.3 speed, and he earned a spot on the Baltimore roster as an undrafted free agent in 2012, despite having a relatively quiet career at the University of Florida. He mostly worked as a kick returner and No. 5 receiver as a rookie, but was displaced from his return role once Jacoby Jones emerged as a threat. Following the departure of Anquan Boldin, Thompson has a chance to compete for the No. 3 receiver role, although he could move up as high as No. 2 if the Ravens want Jones to keep most of his focus on special teams. Tandon Doss enters training camp as the favorite to beat out Thompson and a few other young receivers, but Thompson has consistently drawn high praise from both team officials and the Baltimore media, while Doss lacks high-end athleticism and explosiveness. Thompson probably won't be worth drafting in most leagues, but he could make for an interesting late-round flier in deeper formats.
