  • Patriots' Tyquan Thornton: Role this season TBD

    With the Patriots having selected two wide receivers in the 2024 NFL Draft, Thornton's standing on the team's depth chart is unclear ahead of training camp, per Chad Graff of the Athletic.

    In his post-draft roster assessment, Graff suggests that Thornton, who is presumably past the ankle issue that sidelined him in the Patriots' 2023 regular-season finale, isn't a roster lock ahead of Week 1. Over the first two years of his pro career, the 2022 second-rounder has had trouble staying on the field and has been limited to 35 catches in 22 contests in that span. While Thornton's speed could help him stick around if he has a strong summer, for now he currently has Kendrick Bourne, Ja'Lynn Polk, Demario Douglas, Javon Baker, K.J. Osborn, Jalen Reagor, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Kayshon Boutte to contend with for depth chart slotting.

  • Patriots' Tyquan Thornton: Catches 13 passes in 2023

    Thornton finished the 2023 season with 13 catches (on 23 targets) for 91 yards and three carries for 51 yards in nine games for the Patriots.

    The Patriots traded up in the 2022 NFL Draft to draft Thornton 50th overall, but the 6-foot-2, 185-pounder has struggled to stay on the field during his first two years as a pro. With that in mind, an ankle issue sidelined Thornton for the team's season finale, but he'll presumably be healthy ahead of the 2024 campaign. The Baylor product -- who is under contract with New England through the 2025 season -- does have the speed to potentially make an impact as a deep threat, but his role next season remains to be seen, with plenty of roster churn expected following New England's 4-13 campaign.

  • Patriots' Tyquan Thornton: Won't play Sunday

    Thornton (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets.

    Thornton approached the contest listed as questionable after logging a limited practice Friday, and he'll end up missing the Patriots' season finale. In his absence, DeVante Parker, Demario Douglas, Jalen Reagor and Kayshon Boutte will handle the team's Week 18 WR duties. The 2022 second-rounder thus finishes the 2023 campaign with 13 catches on 23 targets for 91 yards in nine games.

  • Patriots' Tyquan Thornton: Questionable with ankle injury

    Thornton (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.

    Thornton and fellow wide receiver DeVante Parker (ribs) are both questionable for Sunday's season finale. Thornton had a season-high 24 receiving yards after Parker exited early in the Week 17 loss to Buffalo, but the second-year speedster's ceiling will be capped regardless of his teammate's status, especially against the stingy Jets secondary.

  • Patriots' Tyquan Thornton: Three catches Sunday

    Thornton caught all three of his targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 27-21 loss to the Bills.

    With DeVante Parker exiting the contest with a rib injury, Thornton, who logged five snaps Week 16, saw an uptick in playing time (37 snaps) Sunday. If Parker ends up sidelined for the Patriots' season finale against the Jets this weekend, Thornton could continue to see added opportunities Week 18, but even then, he'd only be a lineup option in the deepest of fantasy formats.

  • Patriots' Tyquan Thornton: One catch in Week 16

    Thornton was on the field for five of 58 snaps on offense in Sunday's 26-23 win over the Broncos, catching his only target for 11 yards.

    Even with JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle) inactive, Thornton saw limited usage. The 2022 second-rounder has two more games in which to make his mark before the 2023 season ends, but with just 10 catches for 67 yards on 20 targets in eight games to date, he remains off the fantasy radar.
