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).

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.

Redskins | Washington could add running back

Sun, 31 Jan 2016 11:11:14 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris may not return next season, as previously reported, which could lead the Redskins to draft a running back or sign a free-agent running back, according to CSNWashington.com's Rich Tandler. Tandler said depth is needed at the position and that RBs Chris Thompson and Silas Redd are both coming off injuries and aren't workhorse backs.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Jones would likely be the heir apparent if Morris leaves. Jones showed flashes of starting ability in his rookie season, but he may not be the answer the Redskins are looking for. There's still plenty of time for this situation to play out, though, so stay tuned.

Redskins | Chris Thompson has successful surgery

Wed, 27 Jan 2016 16:54:43 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (shoulder) underwent successful surgery Wednesday, Jan. 27, on the torn labrum in his left shoulder. He is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson could have an increased role next season, particularly in the passing game, if Alfred Morris does not return to Washington. He came through whenever the Redskins were behind and needed to pass last season. Keep him on your sleeper radar in PPR formats.

Redskins | Chris Thompson totals 114 yards

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 18:39:58 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (shoulder, toe) rushed once for 25 yards in the NFC Wild Card Game against the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 10, and he added eight receptions for 89 yards. The production was nice considering he entered with a sore toe and a torn labrum in his shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson has tremendous hands out of the backfield for Kirk Cousins, and he might be a decent late-round add for fantasy players in PPR (points per reception) formats in 2016.
