News: Once again starting over Brandon LaFell, Thompkins caught two passes for 35 yards on three targets in Friday's game against the Panthers. Impact: Thompkins oddly saw his three targets on three consecutive plays, with a pair of first downs sandwiched around a drop in the second quarter. While he's quite clearly ahead of Brandon LaFell, Thompkins will likely face a challenge from Aaron Dobson (foot), who has yet to play this preseason but seems to be making progress. Whether it's Thompkins or Dobson in the starting role, the targets will likely be rather inconsistent, as was the case last season.(RotoWire, )

News: Thompkins started over Brandon LaFell in Friday's preseason game against the Eagles, the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe reports. Impact: Thompkins turned in a strong performance, catching three passes for 32 yards and a touchdown on four targets. Reports out of training camp have also been positive, but the Patriots have quite a crowd at wide receiver, with Thompkins joined by Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Brandon LaFell, Aaron Dobson (foot) and Josh Boyce. With Edelman, Rob Gronkowski and Shane Vereen all locked into major roles in the passing game, there are a lot of players left to fight for not so many targets. Dobson, who didn't play Friday, has both a second-round pedigree and a higher ceiling than Thompkins.(RotoWire, )
