  • Bills' Deonte Thompson: Signs with Bills
    By RotoWire Staff

    Thompson signed a contract with the Bills on Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Thompson was released by the Bears a little less than a week ago but it didn't take long for the six-year pro to find a new home. The Bills now have six wideouts on the active roster but Thompson may be utilized more as a return man -- as he was for the Bears the past three seasons. To make room for the veteran, the Bills released running back Joe Banyard.

  • Deonte Thompson: Cut loose by Chicago
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Bears released Thompson on Wednesday. Chicago will shake up its wideout corps by bidding adieu to Thompson and adding Tanner Gentry from the practice squad for the latter's second tour with the NFL team this season. Thompson had played 186 offensive snaps through the Bears' first five games, but only notched 11 catches for 125 yards and a touchdown. The Bears' poor quarterback play certainly didn't help matters, but it's hard to envision Thompson earning as sizable of a role with another team as he had with Chicago.

  • Thompson brought in five of nine targets for 44 yards and added 27 yards on his sole kickoff return in Thursday's 35-14 loss to the Packers. Thompson currently slots in as the Bears' No. 2 wideout, and considering the overall play of QB Mike Glennon on Thursday, his final stat line was actually a serviceable one. Thompson's reception total was a team high, as were his nine targets. The 28-year-old also logged four receptions and a touchdown back in Week 2, and his production against the Packers already has him halfway to the career-best 22 grabs he tallied last season. While Thompson isn't going to be on fantasy radars outside of very deep leagues for the time being, sheer volume and opportunity may render him a serviceable option in PPR formats that also count return yards as the season unfolds. He'll look to continue producing against the Vikings in Week 5.

  • Thompson caught one pass for nine yards in Sunday's 23-17 win over the Steelers. Thompson was targeted just twice as the Bears played most of this contest with a lead, and as a result, they leaned heavily on their rushing attack. He'll have potential for solid fantasy production in weeks that Chicago finds itself playing from behind, though he should be viewed as a depth option in most leagues.

  • Thompson brought in four of five targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 29-7 loss to the Buccaneers. He also returned two kickoffs for 43 yards. Thompson had managed just one catch in the opener versus the Falcons, but he stepped up his play in Sunday's blowout loss. The 28-year-old receiver was responsible for the Bears' only points on the day, bringing in a 14-yard scoring pass from Mike Glennon with 1:43 remaining. While Thompson has never eclipsed 22 receptions or 249 yards at the NFL level -- numbers he achieved last season -- the decimated state of the Chicago wideout corps could afford him the opportunity to generate career-best production in 2017. For the time being, he'll continue to serve as a complementary presence alongside the top duo of Kendall Wright and Markus Wheaton (finger), the latter who could make his season debut in Week 3.
