Fantasy Impact: Thompkins is taking advantage of his time with the starters while Aaron Dobson sits out on the active/PUP list, and is clearly making a good impression with Tom Brady and the Patriot's coaching staff. While Thompkins has a great shot at making the final roster, he'll likely serve primarily as Aaron Dobson's backup. Thompkins does not have the raw physical ability that Dobson has, but the buzz surrounding the WR is building. He'll need to continue to impress throughout camp to have any shot at making making a fantasy impact this year.
