At times the Bills' No. 1 receiver after he was signed following his release from the Bears, Thompson caught 27 passes for 430 yards in 11 games in Buffalo.

Deonte Thompson (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Jaguars.

Thompson should be all set after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. He played through the same injury last week and caught two-of-three targets for 23 yards in a win over Miami. Thompson will have a tough assignment Sunday against Jacksonville's elite secondary.
Jan 5 - 2:14 PM

Deonte Thompson collected two catches for 23 yards on three targets Sunday in the Bills' Week 17 win over the Dolphins.

Thompson almost didn't play this week after injuring his shoulder at Thursday's practice. The 28-year-old began the year in Chicago but was pink-slipped after just five games. He's fared slightly better since joining Buffalo, eclipsing 80 yards in three of 11 games with his new team. Injuries to Kelvin Benjamin and Jordan Matthews allowed Thompson to play a larger role than expected during the regular season, though his fantasy contributions have remained minimal. The Bills will make their long-awaited return to the postseason next week at Jacksonville.

Deonte Thompson (shoulder) is active for Week 17 against the Dolphins.

Thompson hurt his shoulder in practice this week but will gut it out for Sunday's regular season finale. CB Breon Borders, WR Malchi Dupre, OT Conor McDermott, OG John Miller, WR Brandon Reilly, TE Logan Thomas and CB Shareece Wright are all inactive for Buffalo.

Deonte Thompson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 17.

Thompson got hurt in Thursday's practice, and his status is up in the air against Miami. Struggling rookie Zay Jones would play more if Thompson can't go.

Deonte Thompson is being evaluated after suffering a shoulder injury in Thursday's practice.

Thompson has occasionally been the Bills' No. 1 receiver this season. If he can't go for Sunday's must-win finale against the Dolphins, Zay Jones will see an uptick in snaps.

Deonte Thompson hauled in 4-of-5 targets for 91 yards in the Bills' Week 16 loss to the Patriots.

Tyrod Taylor and Thompson had the deep ball working against New England. Thompson got loose for a 46-yard gain early in the second quarter, and he set up a score with a 33-yard gain just before halftime. He was held to just one catch after the break, but it was a solid outing. Still, he will not be a fantasy option Week 17.
Sun, Dec 24, 2017 05:03:00 PM

Deonte Thompson caught 7-of-10 targets for 81 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' Week 9 loss to the Jets.

Thompson has now cleared 80 yards in 2-of-3 games as a Bill, but most of his production, including his touchdown, came deep into garbage time this evening. Especially with Kelvin Benjamin set to make his Bills debut in Week 10, Thompson is not looking like a wise flier in fantasy leagues.

Deonte Thompson caught his lone target for a gain of five in the Bills' Week 8 win over the Raiders.

Thompson had an early reception, then left the game briefly with a hand injury. Thompson did return, but was invisible. A breakout star in Week 7, Thompson will be a high-variance deep-ball specialist on low usage the rest of the way.
Sun, Oct 29, 2017 04:24:00 PM

Deonte Thompson caught 4-of-4 targets for 107 yards in the Bills' Week 7 win over the Bucs.

Signed by the Bills just five days ago after he was cut by the receiver-needy Bears, Thompson exploited the Bucs' secondary relentlessly on deep balls. Thompson can really run, but his on-field performance has been up and down everywhere he's been as a career journeyman. He's a deep-league add at best.

Bills signed WR Deonte Thompson.

RB Joe Banyard was released in a corresponding roster move. Cut by the Bears last Wednesday, Thompson has 11 receptions in five games this season. He should see immediate snaps for the Bills' laughably-thin receiver corps.
Tue, Oct 17, 2017 06:33:00 PM

Bears released WR Deonte Thompson.

Thompson's snaps were dialed all the way back in Week 5, playing just eight snaps after being in on 53-of-68 plays in Week 4. He caught 11 balls for 125 yards and a score in five games. WR Tanner Gentry takes his roster spot.

Deonte Thompson caught 4-of-5 targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' Week 2 loss to the Bucs.

Thompson's touchdown was a completely meaningless 14-yard strike with 1:43 remaining in a game the Bears were losing 29-0. Apparently the Bears' No. 2 receiver, Thompson will fall down a peg once Markus Wheaton (finger) is healthy enough to play.
Sun, Sep 17, 2017 06:29:00 PM

Bears WR Deonte Thompson caught 1-of-2 targets for 15 yards in the team's Week 1 loss to the Falcons.

Thompson played a ton of snaps, but he simply wasn't getting open. The speedster is barely on the radar in deep leagues despite his big playing-time share.
Sun, Sep 10, 2017 04:47:00 PM

Bears re-signed WR Deonte Thompson.

Pressed into duty by injuries in front of him, Thompson caught a career-high 22 passes last season. He's primarily a return man. The 28 year old will again compete for one of the Bears' final roster spots.
