What to do with Thompkins

Just a couple of weeks ago when fantasy drafts were in full swing, New England Patriots rookie WR Kenbrell Thompkins was a favorite sleeper target. Now, following two uninspiring games (4 receptions for 42 yards in Week 1; 2 receptions for 47 yards in Week 2; 0 TDs), fantasy owners are quickly abandoning him. His ownership in ESPN leagues has dropped from 65.7 percent a week ago to just 40.7 percent. But is it a wise move to not give him a little bit longer to get comfortable as a pro and with QB Tom Brady?
