Redskins | Chris Thompson expects bigger role

Mon, 22 May 2017 06:00:08 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson is expecting a bigger workload this season because he proved to head coach Jay Gruden that he was durable.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson is a sneaky PPR option after he posted 5.2 yards per carry and a 68-356-3 rushing line with a 49-349-2 receiving line. He'll play second fiddle to Rob Kelley, but he could be a solid RB4.

Redskins | Chris Thompson receives tender

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 11:31:47 -0800

Washington Redskins restricted free-agent RB Chris Thompson has received the second-round tender offer, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson should serve as the third-down back for the Redskins in 2017 and will be used in the passing game. He probably should be considered a No. 4 or No. 5 running back in most leagues but may have more value in point-per-reception leagues.

Redskins | Chris Thompson makes his four touches count

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 16:16:37 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed three times for 20 yards and caught one pass for 17 yards, but he accounted for each of his team's first two touchdowns in a Week 16 win over the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: While this performance didn't come out of thin air, Thompson hasn't been useful in fantasy in about two months. It's a bummer for Rob Kelley owners, however, as it could be argued Thompson's first touchdown (from seven yards out) or Kirk Cousins' third-quarter TD on a quarterback sneak were plays Kelley usually gets the ball. Thompson is a low-end flex at best in Week 17 against the New York Giants.

Redskins | Chris Thompson wins it for WAS

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 14:28:19 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson ran three times for 38 yards, including a 25-yard touchdown with 1:54 remaining, in a 27-22 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins running game was more by committee this week, so it's hard to tell whether Thompson will get much better carries or yardage with Rob Kelley also in the picture. Unless Kelley is hurt, Thompson may be best left on the sidelines.

Redskins | Chris Thompson will play

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 12:19:57 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (illness) is officially active for the team's Week 13 game.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson likely will handle his usual workload this week and should see time on third downs. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options to use and can avoid Thompson.

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 17:45:48 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson should be fine for the game against the Arizona Cardinals and will see his usual workload. He has not posted great numbers in his limited playing time and can be passed over in all leagues.
