No production in playoff loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-22

Thompkins failed to bring in his only target and netted no gain on his one punt return in the Buccaneers' 31-23 divisional-round loss to the Lions on Sunday.

Thompkins' near non-existent offensive role wasn't exactly surprising given his sporadic use from scrimmage all season, but he also got much fewer opportunities than usual as a returner. The quiet finish to the campaign doesn't necessarily undermine Thompkins' progress in his second season, when he accrued 561 return yards and produced a 17-83-1 line through the air despite being stuck in the latter portion of the Buccaneers' receiver depth chart. Thompkins is set to be an exclusive-rights free agent this offseason, meaning he should be back with the Buccaneers in 2024 as a cost-effective developmental option and productive special-teams performer.

Multiple roles in wild-card win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-16

Thompkins secured his only target for four yards, rushed once for 10 yards, returned one kickoff for 27 yards and ran back two punts for 24 yards in the Buccaneers' 32-9 wild-card win over the Eagles on Monday night.

Thompkins was active in the return game as usual, but he also was able to enjoy another instance of sporadic offensive participation. The second-year speedster did record a career-high 17 receptions in the regular season, but his primary value is almost certainly going to come as a returner once again in Sunday's divisional-round road matchup versus the Lions.

One reception in Week 18 win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-09

Thompkins brought in his only target for one yard in the Buccaneers' 9-0 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Thompkins didn't see any return opportunities for a change, but he was able to record a catch for the second straight game to close out the regular season. The second-year speedster wrapped up the 2023 campaign with new career highs in receptions (17), receiving yards (83) and targets (25) while also scoring his first NFL touchdown. However, Thompkins' primary value heading into the postseason is on special teams, as he finished the regular season with 561 total return yards.

Limited to returns in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-25

Thompkins did not draw a target over 14 snaps from scrimmage during Sunday's 30-12 win over the Jaguars but returned one kickoff for 17 yards and ran back one punt for six yards.

Thompkins hasn't drawn a target since Week 13, and Sunday marked his second game in the last three without a single touch from scrimmage. With his return duties the only stable part of his profile, Thompkins remains a fantasy non-factor heading into Week 17.

One touch from scrimmage in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-19

Thompkins rushed once for minus-1 yard and returned one punt for 13 yards in the Buccaneers' 34-20 win over the Packers on Sunday.

Thompkins failed to draw a target for the second straight game and went without a catch for the fourth time in the last five contests overall. The Utah State product did see his snaps from scrimmage climb back into double digits (11), but with Trey Palmer and David Moore clearly ahead of him in the pecking order, there's no realistic path for Thompkins to make any meaningful offensive contributions for the time being.

Limited to returns in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-11

Thompkins did not draw a target but returned one kickoff for 29 yards and two punts for 26 yards in the Buccaneers' 29-25 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Thompkins failed to draw so much as one look in the passing attack for the second time in three games, and he went without a catch for the third time in the last four. He did continue to put together a strong body of work as a punt returner, however, pushing his average in that capacity to 9.2 on 21 opportunities. Thompkins' fantasy value continues to be limited to very deep leagues that also count return yardage heading into a Week 15 road battle versus the Packers.

Records 32 all-purpose yards in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-04

Thompkins rushed twice for seven yards, brought in his only target for four yards and returned three punts for 21 yards in the Buccaneers' 21-18 in over the Panthers on Sunday.

Thompkins reverted back to his typically modest role from scrimmage after not logging any touches on offense in Week 12 against the Colts, but he still finished with minimal production. The speedy second-year pro isn't a fantasy option outside of very deep leagues that also count return yards.

Quiet in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-29

Thompkins failed to record a single rushing attempt or target in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Colts.

Thompkins four offensive snaps Sunday accounted for his lowest total of the season. The second-year wideout also played eight special teams snaps in the contest, calling for a fair catch on both of his return opportunities. Thompkins minimal usage on offense keep him far off the fantasy radar heading into a Week 13 matchup with the Panthers.
