No question there have been a ton of drops (I mean Dobson was like 2nd in drop rate and Thompkins is also top 10 or something like that) but I think the key is to look at how they're progressing each week. Both are rookies so they aren't gonna come in and be ball busters. I think at this point, it's clear Thompkins isn't going to have a big role unless someone gets injured. Dobson is getting looks even with a full compliment of receivers and more importantly, he is getting open and developing chemistry with Brady. If his development continues at this exponential rate, he could be a key guy for us in the playoffs. As is, over the last few weeks, he seems to be getting more looks than Edelman.
