Fantasy Analysis | 1419231509
Kenbrell Thompkins comes out of nowhere
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

After making only modest contributions since coming over from the Patriots in Week 6, Raiders wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins suddenly emerged as quarterback Derek Carr's favorite target Week 16 against Buffalo, catching five passes for 90 yards. He hadn't caught even one pass since Week 13, and his previous high in yardage was 47.

Of course, you should know how this goes by now. Fellow wide receivers James Jones and Andre Holmes have both had their stretches of Fantasy relevance this season, as has tight end Mychal Rivera. The Raiders have a multitude of viable receiving targets, but their roles aren't so clear, which makes the task of picking the most impactful from week to week next to impossible.

In other words, you'd need to play in an especially deep league to take a flier on Thompkins for the season's final week.

Kenbrell Thompkins leads Raiders receivers in Week 16 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Raiders wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins led his team with five receptions and 90 yards in Sunday's 26-24 win over the Bills in Week 16.

Thompkins' highlights have ben few and far between this season, but he was able to haul in a 50-yard reception on third-and-13 late in the first quarter to set his team up with first-and-goal. The Raiders would score their first touchdown of the game two plays later. Thompkins came into the game just just 170 yards on 15 receptions.

Receiver Andre Holmes also came through with a big play in the win, hauling in a 51-yard pass late in the fourth quarter on another third-and-long play. The Raiders scored a key touchdown four plays later. Holmes finished with 73 yards on three receptions.

Two Raiders managed to catch touchdowns in the victory, and for both players, it was their only catch of the game. Wide receiver James Jones hauled in a wide-open three-yard touchdown early in the second quarter, while fullback Jamize Olawale scored the decisive one-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

The Raiders have a trip to Denver to face the Broncos on tap in Week 17.

Raiders' passing game yields little Week 13
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Raiders threw for 183 yards with three interceptions in their 52-0 loss at St. Louis, so there wasn't a lot of production to go around. Wideout Andre Holmes caught three of six targets for 28 yards, and wideout Kenbrell Thompkins hauled in two of five targets for 28 yards.

Receiver Brice Butler secured both his targets for 27 yards. Tight end Mychal Rivera caught three of eight targets for 21 yards, and wideout Vincent Brown had a 10-yard grab.

They'll all play the 49ers in Week 14.

Raiders' Kenbrell Thompkins paces quiet receiving attack Week 11
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Raiders wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins caught two of his three targets for a team-high 47 yards in his team's 13-6 loss to the Chargers in Week 11.

Thompkins was responsible for one of the Raiders' few quality plays on offense, making a tough catch over the middle on a play from midfield and ripping off about 15 yards after the catch on a 35-yard play. The Raiders were unable to get into the end zone on the fourth-quarter drive though and settled for their second field goal of the day.

Tight end Mychal Rivera shared the team lead in receptions with running back Latavius Murray, with the tight end catching three of his five targets for 40 yards. James Jones added 35 yards while catching two of his five targets, while Andre Homes caught just two of his six targets for 19 yards. Backup receiver Brice Butler managed to catch one of his three targets for 15 yards.

The Raiders' passing attack will look for a big step up Thursday against the Chiefs.

Raiders receivers do little Week 9
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Raiders backup receivers did little Week 9 against the Seahawks.

Andre Holmes hauled in two passes for 28 yards during the contest. He finished third on the team in receiving. Brice Butler also had two receptions, gaining 20 yards. James Jones grabbed three passes, but gained just 18 yards. Running back Latavius Murray caught two balls for 12 yards. Kenbrell Thompkins caught one pass, gaining 8 yards.

They'll look for more Week 10 against the Broncos.
