DEN RB Juwan Thompson - Week 2, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Kansas City
In Week 1 versus Baltimore, Juwan Thompson did not have a carry. He should remain off any fantasy roster unless C.J. Anderson or Ronnie Hillman succumb to injury.

DEN RB Juwan Thompson - Week 1, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs. Baltimore
The Broncos cut Montee Ball, which made Juwan Thompson the third RB on the team. Starter C.J. Anderson will receive the bulk of the carries with Ronnie Hillman seeing playing time as well. Even with a balanced offensive attack by Denver, there is no reason for Thompson to be on a fantasy roster right now.

DEN RB Juwan Thompson - 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
During his rookie season, Juwan Thompson played in 15 games and ran for 272 yards. He averaged five yards per carry and scored three TDs, two of which came in Week 8 versus the Chargers. The former Duke Blue Devil is a bruising back at 225 pounds and made the most of his opportunities when he was on the field.

Fantasy Downside
C.J. Anderson took the reigns as the Broncos No. 1 RB around mid-season in ’14 and will be Denver’s featured back, as long as he remains healthy. Only once last year did Thompson have double-digit touches – he had 10 rushes for 39 yards at Kansas City in late November. Not only will Juwan be behind Anderson on the depth chart, but also Ronnie Hillman and Montee Ball, who has recovered after a rough and injury-plagued 2014 campaign.

Bottom Line
Heading into the regular season, Juwan is competing for the No. 3 RB slot. While Thompson showed some explosiveness with a 47-yard scamper in a home win versus the Bills, he will likely be used in short-yardage situations. Barring any setbacks from the top backs for the Broncos, expect no more than a handful of touches per game from Thompson, even in what should be a balanced offense. There’s no reason for him to start the season on your fantasy roster.

DEN RB Juwan Thompson - Week 19, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Divisional Round – Juwan Thompson vs. Indianapolis Colts
Now that Ronnie Hillman is healthy, Juwan Thompson likely won’t see much playoff action. He should not be part of your postseason fantasy roster.

DEN RB Juwan Thompson - Week 17, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 – Juwan Thompson vs. Oakland Raiders
C.J. Anderson continues to be the Broncos workhorse at RB. While Anderson carried the rock 18 times last week in Cincinnati, Juwan Thompson finished with just one rush for two yards. In the Week 10 win at Oakland, Thompson ran for only eight yards on four carries. He should not be started this week, especially with the return of Ronnie Hillman to the Denver lineup.

DEN RB Juwan Thompson - Week 16, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 – Juwan Thompson vs. Cincinnati Bengals
With C.J. Anderson receiving 29 of the Broncos’ 39 rushing attempts last week in San Diego, Juwan Thompson carried the ball only four times for 14 yards. Thompson could be splitting backup reps with Ronnie Hillman, who may return from a foot injury, on Monday night. Look elsewhere for your starting fantasy RB.

DEN RB Juwan Thompson - Week 15, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 – Juwan Thompson vs. San Diego Chargers
C.J. Anderson ran the ball 21 times and scored three times in the win over the Bills last Sunday, but Juwan Thompson had the big run of the day – a 47 yard scamper. Juwan finished with only three rushes and will continue to be the backup, limiting his opportunities. In Denver earlier this season, Thompson ran for 24 yards and two TDs versus the Chargers, but there has to be a better RB option out there.
