Redskins | Chris Thompson expected to sit out

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 13:08:25 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (undisclosed) is not expected to play in the preseason game against the Buffalo Bills Friday, Aug. 26, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Thompson is dealing with a minor injury and wants to be ready for the start of the regular season. Thompson is expected to be the third-down back this season if Matt Jones is healthy and could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.

Redskins | Keith Marshall turning heads in camp

Tue, 09 Aug 2016 18:43:37 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Keith Marshall is firmly entrenched among the team's top three backs along with RBs Matt Jones and Chris Thompson, and there is a gap between that trio and the rest of the team's running backs, according to multiple sources. Marshall's speed has been the reason he has stood out, and he ran a 4.31 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine. "He has that ability, when he does put that foot in the ground, he explodes through the line of scrimmage," offensive coordinator Sean McVay said.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall is only worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues as a late-round sleeper at this point. However, if an injury to Jones or Thompson occurs, Marshall could see plenty of meaningful touches if he continues to show well in training camp and the preseason.

Redskins | Chris Thompson should be ready for camp

Wed, 13 Jul 2016 14:10:08 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (shoulder) did not participate in offseason workouts because of shoulder surgery but should be ready for training camp. Thompson is expected to be the third-down back for the Redskins in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson should receive touches this season as long as he can stay healthy. He probably will be more involved in the passing game than the running game, which should help his value in point-per-reception leagues. He could be considered a late-round option in most leagues.

Redskins | Chris Thompson misses practice

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 22:36:12 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) missed practice Wednesday, June 15, as he deals with a back ailment.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson is in a fight for a roster spot, so he'll need to get himself healthy for training camp. Even if he is able to nail down a spot, he is likely to serve only as the third-down back. His fantasy outlook heading into the summer is murky at best.

Redskins | Chris Thompson likely to miss workouts

Wed, 25 May 2016 19:14:49 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (shoulder) likely will not participate in any of the offseason workouts because he is still recovering from shoulder surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson may have to compete for a roster spot during training camp but probably will be used as a third-down back if he makes the team. Thompson could have some value in point-per-receptions but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Redskins | Chris Thompson on shaky ground?

Thu, 05 May 2016 09:57:10 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson's spot as the backup running back to RB Matt Jones could be in jeopardy after Washington drafted speedy RB Keith Marshall in the seventh round. The Redskins could also re-sign RB Pierre Thomas, which could pose an even bigger threat to Thompson.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson, for now, is the No. 2 runner as the third-down back for Washington behind Jones. That could change quickly, though, and Thompson really is only worth a speculative late-round flier in point-per-reception leagues as a handcuff to Jones.

Redskins | Chris Thompson taking it slow

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 19:42:19 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (shoulder) is recovering from shoulder surgery, and head coach Jay Gruden said Wednesday, March 23, that Thompson might not be ready for the start of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson is working his way back and could be the No. 2 in D.C. with Alfred Morris moving on to the Dallas Cowboys. He could be worth a look in the later rounds of fantasy leagues which reward points per reception (PPR).

Fri, 18 Mar 2016 09:37:56 -0700

Redskins | Chris Thompson returns to 'Skins

Thu, 17 Mar 2016 15:12:55 -0700

Washington Redskins exclusive-rights free-agent RB Chris Thompson signed his tender offer Thursday, March 17. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: With Alfred Morris unlikely to return to this backfield, Thompson should have a much bigger role alongside Matt Jones in D.C. The second-year back had 35 carries for 216 yards and 35 catches for 240 yards and two touchdowns last year in 13 games. He's more valuable in point-per-reception formats, and he could have RB3/flex value in those setups.
