Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Thompson followed his old coach Jay Gruden over to the Jaguars, though it's not worth getting excited about, as Thompson has struggled to stay healthy and is going to be 30 years old later this year. He's more of a party pooper to someone like Leonard Fournette than he is a standalone fantasy asset. Even if Fournette were to miss time, Thompson's role wouldn't change much.It's odd that Richard was re-signed to the Raiders roster when they said they wanted to get Josh Jacobs more involved in the passing game, as Richard is the primary competition. Not just that, but they then drafted running back/wide receiver Lynn Bowden in the second round. However we slice it, Richard isn't likely to top the 43 targets he got in 2019, which makes him a non-factor in fantasy leagues.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Thompson's struggled to stay healthy the past few seasons, but he's proven to be very valuable when he's in the lineup. Jacksonville's defense is no longer the rock-solid unit that it was a few years ago and the Jaguars are most likely going to need to be playing catch up in a lot of games this season. This leads to Thompson being heavily involved out of the backfield as the receiving back, which is going to inevitably lead to some level of fantasy production. He's not going to be a top-36 option or anything, but Thompson could have some value this season as a filler in your lineup during bye weeks.Richard is back with the Raiders for another season, but he's more of a thorn in the side for fantasy players than anything else. Richard isn't going to see enough passing volume to be relevant, but he's going to be involved enough in the offense to steal targets from Josh Jacobs. With the addition of Lynn Bowden too, it's unlikely that Richard ever sees enough work to be put into your fantasy lineup this season.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Richard saw a dip in production with Josh Jacobs on the roster, but he'll always be the passing-downs thorn in Jacobs' side. The Raiders gave Richard a two-year extension this offseason, so despite talk of Jacobs' added involvement in the passing game, Richard should continue to hold his role. Unfortunately, that role isn't worth that much, particularly with Lynn Bowden added to the mix. Richard is worth a look in extremely deep PPR formats, nothing more.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
It's hard to forget that Chris Thompson is a sensational running back when he's healthy. An explosive receiver and under-appreciated runner, he arrives in an unsettled Jags backfield and may just take over much of the third-down work. If that's the case, he'll have some weekly PPR value as Jacksonville will be behind a lot!Jalen Richard was reduced to a pass-catcher in 2019 with Josh Jacobs and Deandre Washington combining for the vast majority of carries. Concerningly, that role is also on the rocks with Jacobs expected to improve his catching and Lynn Bowden brought in to mess things up further. Richard remains undraftable but may once again pop up as a waiver add in PPR once bye weeks or a Josh Jacobs injury occur.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
I keep moving him up. I just like the idea of him reuniting with Jay Gruden, and I feel like Fournette is a holdout candidate... 
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 The Raiders are giving Richard a 2-year deal worth $7 million, source said. He gets up to $8 million with $4.6 million fully guaranteed.
