Picks off four passes this season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-02-09

Thompson notched 78 tackles, including 1.0 sack, four interceptions among nine pass defenses and a forced fumble in 15 regular-season contests in 2023.

After surpassing 100 tackles in both of the previous two campaigns, Thompson fell well short of that mark while missing his first games (Weeks 6 and 7) since December 2020. Not only did dealing with four separate injuries impact his overall output, he may have been a culprit of the new coaching staff's change from a 3-4 to a 4-3 scheme. On a positive note, Thompson posted his first career sack and set a career high in interceptions. In 2024, he'll be playing on the second season of the three-year extension he signed with the Cardinals back in September 2022.

Secures interception in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-26

Thompson recorded five tackles (four solo) while intercepting a pass and deflecting three others in Sunday's 27-16 loss to the Bears.

Thompson had one of his best days in pass defense Sunday, securing his fourth interception of the year by picking off Justin Fields in the fourth quarter. The strong safety has now compiled 73 tackles, including a sack, and also added the four interceptions, eight pass deflections and a forced fumble over 13 contests in 2023.

Tallies six tackles

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-19

Thompson notched six tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 45-29 loss to the 49ers.

Thompson has racked up six-plus tackles in each of his last four appearances, bringing his totals to 68 tackles (52 solo), five pass breakups, three interceptions and one forced fumble across 12 appearances. He can be considered a fringe fantasy option in IDP formats heading into a Week 16 matchup against the turnover-prone Bears.

Will play versus San Francisco

Thompson (toe) carries no injury designation heading into Sunday's game against the 49ers, Bo Brack of reports.

Thompson finished the week strong as a full participant in Friday's practice and is good to go for Sunday's NFC West clash. He has 62 tackles (47 solo), including 1.0 sacks, three interceptions and a forced fumble over 11 games this season.

Starts week limited

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-13

Thompson (toe) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Thompson was dealing with a rib injury leading up to Week 13 against the Steelers. He appears to have picked up the toe injury sometime between then and the end of the Cardinals' Week 14 bye week. He'll have two more practices to ramp up his participation ahead of Sunday's matchup against the 49ers.

Solid showing at Pittsburgh

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-04

Thompson recorded seven tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 24-10 win at Pittsburgh.

Thompson tallied seven-plus tackles for the third game in a row and the fifth time this season in Week 13. He's actually had a down year so far compared to his past two seasons, but he'll still be on the fringe of the IDP radar after Arizona's bye in Week 14 thanks to his consistent every-down role.

Will suit up

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-03

Thompson (ribs) is active Sunday against the Steelers.

Thompson closed the week with back-to-back limited practices and feels well enough to take the field Sunday in Pittsburgh. He should draw the start at strong safety.

Questionable to play at Pittsburgh

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-01

Thompson (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

Thompson was limited at practice Thursday and Friday, so his status for Week 13 seems close to a coin-flip proposition. If he's unable to suit up Sunday, Andre Chachere would probably be in line to start.

Gets back to practice Thursday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-30

Thompson (ribs) was a limited participant at practice Thursday, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

Thompson missed practice Wednesday, but he made progress towards potentially playing in Week 13 by returning to the field Thursday. However, unless he's able to upgrade to full participation Friday, he'll likely carry an injury designation into the weekend.
