Deonte Thompson 3-of-4 targets for 34 yards and one touchdown in the Bears' Week 16 loss to the Redskins.

Thompson's score was of the true garbage-time variety with the Bears already getting smoked 41-13. The speedy fifth-year wideout has now had big back-to-back statistical games, but he won't be someone to trust in Week 17.

Deonte Thompson caught 8-of-10 targets for 110 yards in the Bears' Week 15 loss to the Packers.

This one could be classified as "out of nowhere." Thompson doubled his season receiving total this afternoon. He entered Week 15 with 333 career yards. With Alshon Jeffery back from suspension, the odds are next to zero Thompson will get even half this yardage in either of Chicago's final two games.

Thompson runs 4.31 at 6-foot, 203 pounds.

Thompson has 15 career catches for 147 scoreless yards.
