  • Tyquan Thornton Heading To Injured Reserve

    Headshot for Tyquan Thornton

    New England Patriots wide receiver Tyquan Thornton (shoulder) will spend the first four weeks of the season on the sideline. The team is placing him on short-term injured reserve. The sophomore suffered the injury during training camp. The Patriots tried to design plays for the speedster in 2022 but failed to do so with much success. He caught just 22 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns in 13 games. Once healthy, Thornton will sit behind JuJu Smith-Schuster, Kendrick Bourne, and DeVante Parker on New England's depth chart.

  • Patriots To Place WR Tyquan Thornton On IR

    Headshot for Tyquan Thornton

    The Patriots’ receiving room will be shorthanded to begin the season. Tyquan Thornton is headed to injured reserve, reports ESPN’S Jeremy Fowler. As a result of the move, Thornton will be sidelined for at least the first four games of the campaign. The 2022 second-rounder is dealing with a shoulder injury, and the timing of the ailment […]

  • Tyquan Thornton Misses Practice Wednesday

    Headshot for Tyquan Thornton

    New England Patriots wide receiver Tyquan Thornton missed training camp practice on Wednesday with an undisclosed issue. It's unknown what Thornton is dealing with or how serious it is, but it's a pretty good bet he won't suit up for Friday's preseason finale against the Tennessee Titans. The 23-year-old second-rounder last year continues to compete for a roster spot as receiver depth for the Patriots entering the 2023 regular season. Thornton is off the fantasy radar for now in standard-sized leagues while being behind JuJu Smith-Schuster, DeVante Parker and Kendrick Bourne on the receiver depth chart. He was a complementary piece in his rookie campaign and he caught just 22 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns in 13 games (nine starts). Thornton should have a bigger role in 2023, but it won't necessarily lead to pertinent fantasy production on a weekly basis.

  • Tyquan Thornton Racks Up 31 Yards In Preseason Opener

    Headshot for Tyquan Thornton

    New England Patriots wide receiver Tyquan Thornton caught both of his targets for 31 yards in Thursday's 20-9 preseason loss to the Houston Texans. Bailey Zappe connected with Thornton for a 27-yard completion late in the first quarter. The 23-year-old has struggled during training camp. It was good to see Thornton make a massive play in his first game of preseason action. He is competing with JuJu Smith-Schuster, DeVante Parker, Kendrick Bourne, and Demario Douglas for wide receiver targets. Thornton caught 22 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns over 13 games in 2022. The Baylor product has elite speed and a chance to make an impact as New England's top deep threat, making Thornton mainly an option in deep-league formats.

  • Tyquan Thornton May Be Falling Off

    Headshot for Tyquan Thornton

    New England Patriots wide receiver Tyquan Thornton has struggled early in training camp and missed two of the three padded practices last week for unknown reasons, so he may be falling off in the team's eyes. Meanwhile, sixth-round rookie Demario Douglas has shined since the start of camp. Thornton and Douglas appear to be splitting first-team repetitions evenly, and it could be a sign of a position battle for the No. 4 receiver job and main speed threat. It looks like the coaching staff trusts Douglas, as they continue to increase his workload as camp goes on. While Thornton is trending down, it's unlikely that the Pats are in a rush to give up on him after he was the 50th overall pick just two years ago. The 23-year-old has blazing speed, but he had just 22 catches for 247 yards and no TDs in 13 games in 2022.

  • Tyquan Thornton, JuJu Smith Schuster Ready To Go For Training Camp

    Headshot for Tyquan Thornton

    New England Patriots wide receivers Tyquan Thornton (soft-tissue) and JuJu-Smith Schuster (knee) have been at Gillette Stadium for the last four days and are expected to take part in training camp right away. Both wideouts missed extended time in the spring, so it's a positive development for their fantasy football outlooks and the Patriots' passing game as a whole. Smith-Schuster should be the favorite to lead the team in targets and Thornton is expected to take a leap forward as a dynamic playmaker in his sophomore campaign. That said, New England will still likely have one of the most run-heavy offenses in 2023, so neither has legitimate WR1 upside. Smith-Schuster could produce a WR2 season in PPR formats, assuming he stays healthy.

  • Tyquan Thornton Not Quite Ready

    Headshot for Tyquan Thornton

    New England Patriots wide receiver Tyquan Thornton (undisclosed) could begin the season on the active/PUP list, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. The 22-year-old continues to manage an undisclosed soft-tissue injury that he suffered this spring. It sounds like he's still managing the issue and isn't quite ready yet. Thornton is an intriguing player as the Pats selected him in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft. He finished his first season with 22 receptions for 247 yards, and two touchdowns in 13 games. The expectation is that Thornton will compete with Kendrick Bourne for the WR3 role, assuming Thornton is healthy in camp. Thornton could end up with some deep league PPR value if he gets healthy by the beginning of the season.
