Thompkins caught two passes for 60 yards at Carolina on Monday night. The rookie wideout from Cincinnati was targeted just twice for the game.
Since catching the game-winning touchdown in the miraculous win over New Orleans on October 13th, Thompkins has caught just two passes for 76 yards. The return to health of Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola and Shane Vereen has left Thompkins out of the mix in the passing game for the most part. Five other receivers in the New England offense received more targets than Thompkins on Monday. As a result, he is not a recommended play moving forward, unless injuries strike New England once again.
