Thompson finished the 2019 season with 45 tackles (23 solo) including 1.5 sacks, three passes defended and one forced fumble in 15 games.
ANALYSIS
After barely getting on the field in 2018 during his first campaign with the Cowboys, Thompson started four games this year as injuries hit the safety group and even made an impact as an IDP asset in Week 14, when he racked up 11 tackles including a sack against the Bears. With his rookie contract now up -- he was a third-round pick of the Giants in 2016 -- Thompson will head into free agency hoping his resume can earn him a more consistent role in someone's secondary.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
Thompson will start alongside Landon Collins as the team's free safety. While Collins is the star of the unit, Thompson put up serviceable numbers last year with 75 total tackles, six passes defensed and one interception. However, he struggled in run support and was running with the second-team defense in offseason workouts, behind Andrew Adams.
Thompson is likely to start at free safety opposite superstar strong safety Landon Collins. It's hard to see both players racking up huge IDP totals, so Thompson's upside is likely modest.
This year's third-round pick, Thompson is the early favorite to start at free safety. There's some IDP upside here should he keep the job and see a heavy snap count.
