2016 Week 16 vs KC (3 / 19 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Thompson started the game at fullback, and saw limited snaps in this role. Late in the 4th quarter with a win beyond reach, the Broncos rested Forsett and Booker and featured Thompson for a drive. Thompson picked up a few carries, including a long of 19 on a 3rd and 19 draw play that saw the Kansas City defense fielding a prevent unit.
2016 Week 17 vs OAK (2 / 1 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Thompson saw limited snaps at fullback and tailback, carrying the ball twice for just a yard. Thompson secured one catch for 11 yards in the 2nd quarter, but the play was negated by a holding penalty.
2014 Week 6 vs NYJ (8 / 38 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gaining his first extended action of the season, rookie Juwan Thompson had his own turn as the best back in the game for Denver. Thompson rotated in for starter Ronnie Hillman on several drives, but his best action came on the first drive of the second half, where Thompson played every snap as Denver drove 87 yards for a touchdown. Thompson ran exclusively between the tackles and showed a willingness to play through contact, although he failed to show much speed or explosiveness in his limited action.
2014 Week 7 vs SF (6 / 30 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Once again, Juwan Thompson was the primary backup and the player who came in when Ronnie Hillman needed a breather. Thompson looks like the most powerful back on Denver's roster, and converted on all three of his short-yardage attempts against San Francisco.
2014 Week 8 vs SD (7 / 24 / 2 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Juwan Thompson only had three carries before Denver's final clock-killing drive, but he made the most out of them, taking two of them for short touchdowns. Thompson split short-yardage duties with starter Ronnie Hillman and just happened to be on the field at the right time. He remains a clear backup.
2014 Week 13 vs KC (10 / 39 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
With Denver handing the football off 42 times, there were plenty of carries to go around for backup Juwan Thompson. Thompson largely rotated in to keep starter C.J. Anderson fresh and played solid-but-unremarkable football. He was stuffed on his first 3rd-and-short of the night and then pulled for Anderson on the ensuing 4th-down attempt, but Thompson did manage to atone later with a 17-yard gain on his only other 3rd-and-short carry of the night.
