Expert 
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.
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.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Samuels has received just 122 carries in his first two seasons, and although he can factor in as a receiver at times, he doesn't have a path to regular playing time. Even if James Conner deals with injuries again, Benny Snell Jr. and Anthony McFarland Jr. stand in Samuels' way. He's relevant only in extremely deep PPR leagues. 
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...
