View WR Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Thornton stands 6’2, 181 pounds with elite, 4.28 wheels.
  • He posted 15.7 YPC across 4 seasons at Baylor. He broke out as a sophomore (45-782-5) and topped those numbers last fall (62-948-10).
  • The Pats made Thornton a surprise Round 2 selection. Not only that, but the team traded up to land him.
  • He profiles mainly as a downfield weapon, at least in year 1 while he improves his route tree.
  • The Pats have bodies at pass-catcher, but nobody close to elite: Jakobi Meyers, Kendrick Bourne, DeVante Parker and Hunter Henry stand out as top targets.
  • Thornton could develop into a long-term WR2 alongside a promising Mac Jones.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

We love Thornton’s game-breaking speed. He simply doesn’t project for a major 2022 role, despite strong, Round 2 draft capital.

Barring summer injuries, Thornton will be just a watch-list player.

Thornton to IR

The Patriots placed WR Tyquan Thornton (collarbone) on IR, knocking him out for at least the first 4 games of the season. It's a procedural move with Thornton expected to be sidelined until mid-October. The rookie could make an impact in the 2nd half of the season, but he's not worth stashing on redraft benches.

Patriots WR Tyquan Thornton is expected to miss about 8 weeks with the collarbone injury he suffered in Friday's preseason game, according to NFL Network's Mike Giardi. That'd put Thornton back sometime around Week 6 or 7. It'll likely be another few weeks beyond that before Thornton has any chance of being a real fantasy factor. The rookie can be left on the waiver wire in all redraft leagues.

Patriots WR Tyquan Thornton suffered a collarbone injury in Friday night's preseason game, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rapoport doesn't say Thornton's collarbone is broken, but it sure sounds like that's the case. Thornton's season is "now put on hold, though based on his timetable, the injury to the speedster is not season ending." We'll look for a more concrete timeline, but Thornton isn't worth a roster spot in redraft leagues. His absence leaves Jakobi Meyers, DeVante Parker, Kendrick Bourne and Nelson Agholor as New England's clear top 4 WRs.

Update: NFL Network's Mike Giardi reports that Thornton is expected to miss "around 8 weeks."

Dynasty Write-up
Thornton's not a bad prospect. The speed is nearly historic (4.28-second 40 at the Combine), he averaged 15.7 yards per catch for his career, and he claimed strong market shares last season: 26.3% of receptions, 33.4% of yards and 43.5% of TD catches. (He also added a 6-yard TD throw.) But that was his 1st year of 20%+ target share among 4 at Baylor. And Thornton joins a crowded, murky target picture with the Patriots.
