Player Outlook

Thompson ended up playing just eight games for the Jaguars in 2020 before a back injury ended his season, and he doesn't have a team as we head into the summer. Maybe he catches on as a third-down back somewhere, a role he's historically handled well. However, it's unlikely he'll be Fantasy relevant outside of deeper PPR leagues, so you won't need to worry about him on Draft Day in most leagues.

Player News
  • The Jaguars may look for a new third-down back to replace Thompson (back) this offseason, Garry Smits of The Florida Times-Union reports. Thompson signed a one-year contract last offseason and played in eight games before a back injury sent him to injured reserve. He finished with only seven carries for 20 yards and a 20/146/1 receiving line, while starting RB James Robinson piled up 1,070 rushing yards, 344 receiving yards and 10 total touchdowns. The Jags may want a third-down specialist to help lighten Robinson's workload in 2021, but the 30-year-old Thompson isn't likely to be that guy. After missing five or more games for a fourth consecutive year, Thompson could have trouble finding work even if his back injury heals before the start of free agency.

  • The Jaguars placed Thompson (back) on injured reserve Monday, John Shipley of SI.com reports. Thompson suffered a back injury during Sunday's loss to the Packers, and while the team hasn't provided injury details, he'll require at least three weeks to recover. This should open the door for Devine Ozigbo (hamstring) and Dare Ogunbowale to contribute in the passing game moving forward, but James Robinson still is the bell cow, as he's handled 86.8 percent of the running back touches this year.

  • Thompson has been cleared from concussion evaluation, but remains questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Packers due to a back injury. Thompson exited the game in the first quarter and despite clearing concussion protocol, he's still not healthy enough to return. With Thompson still sidelined, Dare Ogunbowale will continue to handle the depth running back role behind James Robinson in Sunday's game.

  • Thompson left Sunday's game against the Packers and is being evaluated for a concussion. Thompson was forced to leave the game following the team's first drive, so he'll need to be cleared by the NFL's independent doctors to return to action. As long as he's sidelined, expect Dare Ogunbowale to take over the depth running back role behind James Robinson in Sunday's game.

  • Thompson rushed once for three yards and caught all four of his targets for 35 yards during Sunday's 27-25 loss to the Texans. Rookie James Robinson continues to dominate the backfield work for Jacksonville, and he had a career-high 25 carries during Sunday's contest. Thompson played 19 offensive snaps and totaled exactly 35 receiving yards for the third time this season. The veteran continues to work in a passing-down role, and his fantasy prospects remain inconsequential while Robinson is the clear No. 1 back.
