Kenbrell Thompkins 2014 Season Outlook
Posted 16 August 2014 - 11:49 AM
Rotoworld and the fantasy expert community in general continues to view Thompkins as a backup that's fighting for no better than the 5th receiver spot but there's so much positive talk about this guy it seems weird that he's just expected to disappear behind Edelman, Amendola, Dobson and LaFell once the season starts. Looked good last night too and once again Tom Brady talking up how much he trusts him...is he really as irrelevant as we're lead to believe?

Dobson is a bit of the WR version of Sankey albeit on a smaller scale. There's very little middle ground. You either focus on him running the wrong routes and dropping the ball or you see his opportunity and potential in his offense. I come out on the skepticism Sid on Dobson and LaFell, which makers Thompkins a person of interest.
This DID NOT help my headache.
Kenbrell will have 3 good weeks, 3 mediocre weeks and 10 utter disappointments. Stay away.

Rotoworld's blurb about Dobson's locker being moved next to Brady's seemed ominous but in reading further it appears that was done awhile back. The blurb also failed to mention that Brandon LaFell was put on the other side of Brady so it doesn't seem quite as important as to what's going on in New England.

Too many targets in NE...but at some point you know Amendola and Gronk will get hurt, Kenbrell might be an option off the wire when that happens...
All it takes is one guy to outshine the rest. New England is desparately looking for someone to step up.

- Gronk and Edelman will be first priority for targets no matter what.
- Dobson is currently hurt, Amendola probably will get hurt, and so far Lafell has not shown much.
- As long as one of those three is out/ineffective, Thompkins has some value. If two are out, then he has some good upside for a late round or waiver pick up.
