After a disastrous offseason, there was plenty of uncertainty surrounding the New England Patriots receiving corps. However, some of that skepticism has faded thanks to the work of rookie wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins

The Cincinnati product has been excellent the past two weeks, catching nine passes for 168 yards and three touchdowns. He is now one of Tom Brady's favorite weapons, as the quarterback targeted Thompkins 11 times throughout Sunday night's game. 

Thompkins didn't disappoint in his increased role, putting up 127 yards on six catches. He torched the Atlanta Falcons secondary all night long and effectively buried the Falcons with his 18-yard TD grab in the fourth quarter. 

With his speed and improving route-running ability, Thompkins should continue to make an impact on the Patriots offense. And given that he is owned in just 61.6 percent of ESPN fantasy leagues, he could be a great midseason addition to your fantasy team. 

Thompkins is still largely unproven, so you should wait and see if he can sustain this kind of production before inserting him into your starting lineup. However, Thompkins is emerging as a breakout fantasy star, and it would be smart to snatch him ASAP if he's available in your league.
