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.

Baker (non-injury) was removed from the report.

Redskins | Matt Jones iffy for Sunday

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 16:48:59 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (hip) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 7, and he said that he "probably" wouldn't be able to play if the team's game was on Thursday. "I can run and do drills, but certain moves, I can't make," Jones said. "I'm still trying to find if I can play through it or not. If I do a cut and feel it, I'm going to try to see if I can push through it and tolerate it to see." RB Pierre Thomas was used as the backup to RB Alfred Morris the last two weeks, while RB Chris Thompson also saw limited work. Head coach Jay Gruden expects to make a decision on Jones either Friday, Jan. 8, or Saturday, Jan. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is extremely risky on FantasyScore. He hasn't played in the last two weeks, and the 'Skins play the last game of wild-card weekend. Alfred Morris ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) gains some intrigue as an under-the-radar play as a result. Thomas ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) and Thompson ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) are stabs in the dark as deep sleepers.

Redskins | Chris Thompson's status unknown

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 07:42:17 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson's (shoulder) status for Week 15's game against the Buffalo Bills remains up in the air.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson practiced on a limited basis throughout the week and is officially listed as questionable on the injury report. When healthy, he serves as the team's main pass-catching running back but he should be avoided in all fantasy formats today due to the uncertainty surrounding his status.

Redskins | Chris Thompson has torn labrum

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 09:39:08 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (shoulder) is dealing with a torn labrum in his shoulder and could be out this week and possibly longer.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) had carved out a role as a pass-catching back for the 'Skins this year, but his playing time was unstable with Alfred Morris and Matt Jones in the picture, too. With Thompson injured, Jones ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) could become a great sleeper play down the stretch at FantasyScore. Pierre Thomas could see minimal time but is only worth a stab in the deepest of leagues.

Redskins | Chris Thompson sits again

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 15:28:09 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (shoulder) did not practice for a second straight day Thursday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is the Redskins' main pass-catching running back when healthy. If he isn't able to play this week then Matt Jones ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) would probably see an increased look and would be worth a harder look on FantasyScore.

Redskins | Chris Thompson unable to practice

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 19:48:33 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (shoulder) was unable to practice Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is third on the depth chart behind Matt Jones ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) and Alfred Morris ($4,300, 8.6% of cap). However, he could see increasing touches down the stretch if Morris continues to struggle.

Redskins | Chris Thompson leaves game

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 11:18:42 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury during the team's Week 12 game and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Jones probably would receive a bigger role if Thompson misses time because of the injury. Jones has played well at times this season and could be a solid option if he receives more touches.

Redskins | Chris Thompson leads weak running game

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 15:50:48 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson had four carries for 10 yards in his team's 44-16 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, Nov. 22.

Fantasy Tip: If Thompson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) wasn't stuck in neutral, Matt Jones ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) was coughing up the football. The Redskins are going to be in big trouble if they can't run the ball with Alfred Morris sidelined due to rib issues, and neither of these backups carry much FantasyScore value.

Redskins | More screen plays for Redskins?

Sat, 21 Nov 2015 10:53:18 -0800

Washington Redskins RBs Matt Jones and Chris Thompson, in particular, may be in line for more work in the screen game moving forward. Head coach Jay Gruden said he expects Washington to have more success with screens as the season goes on after finding success in that area last week. Gruden added that having a successful screen game is important, especially versus teams with a good pass rush.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Jones ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) certainly benefitted from screens last week, and Chris Thompson's main role is in the passing game. Jones probably has the most PPR value right now among Washington running backs. He's worth a look on FantasyScore this week as the Carolina Panthers have allowed the second-most receptions to running backs this year (61).

Redskins | Probable tag for Chris Thompson

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 16:03:02 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) practiced in full the entire week and is probable for Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) didn't receive a single carry last week and had just two catches. It's hard to imagine he'll carve out a big role moving forward as anything more than a third-down option out of the backfield. However, he has more appeal in PPR leagues like FantasyScore, and the Saints are a top 10 matchup for runners in this format. Thompson is a deep sleeper if you're looking to save money somewhere.

Redskins | Full practice for Chris Thompson

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 16:52:01 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Thompson ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) will be playing this weekend; he's got a tasty matchup against a New Orleans Saints defense that struggles against running backs. The Redskins may be forced to pass a lot in order to keep up with New Orleans, too, and pass-catching has proven to be Thompson's Forte, so don't overlook him on FantasyScore.

Redskins | Chris Thompson a full go in practice

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 16:52:21 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has been the Redskins' main pass-catching running back this year, and the New Orleans Saints have struggled against such running backs, allowing 54 catches, 483 receiving yards and three receiving touchdowns to running backs through nine games. Thompson may be worth a flyer on FantasyScore this week.

Redskins | Chris Thompson probable

Fri, 06 Nov 2015 14:35:29 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Nov. 6, and is probable for Week 9 against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) does have six catches in each of his last two games, but he hasn't played since Oct. 18. It's a long shot, but he could be involved heavily in the short passing game if the Redskins are playing catchup, although New England has only allowed one receiving score to a runner this year. Thompson is a deep sleeper, at best, on FantasyScore.

Redskins | Chris Thompson has full practice

Thu, 05 Nov 2015 13:32:15 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) participated fully in practice Thursday, Nov. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has Alfred Morris and Matt Jones to compete with, but he has been successful in the passing game this year. If the Redskins fall behind versus the New England Patriots, Thompson should outperform his FantasyScore asking price.

Redskins | Chris Thompson fully practices

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 16:19:41 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 4.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Thompson ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is in line to return to action this week against the New England Patriots. The Patriots have been unkind to running backs this year, though, so don't put Thompson on the top of your FantasyScore priority list.

Redskins | Chris Thompson ruled out

Sun, 25 Oct 2015 08:41:51 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) has been declared inactive for the Week 7 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Jones ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should handle Thompson's role as a third-down running back during the game and likely will be more involved in the passing game. Jones will be facing a decent Buccaneers defense but could be a flex option for owners.

Redskins | Chris Thompson doubtful against Bucs

Fri, 23 Oct 2015 15:39:26 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) did not practice for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 23, and is doubtful to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: With Thompson likely out and Matt Jones also banged up, this could be a game in which we see a heavy dose of Alfred Morris ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) in a fine matchup. He's best used in a flex spot on FantasyScore, though.

Redskins | Chris Thompson misses practice

Thu, 22 Oct 2015 13:29:44 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) did not practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: This is the part of the week where it starts to get concerning if a player continues not to practice. Thompson ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is the Redskins' best receiving threat out of the backfield. Should Thompson be unable to take the field, Alfred Morris ($5,500, 11.0%) and Matt Jones ($2,600, 5.2%) would have more value, and Jones would likely play on more passing downs. Stay tuned to Thompson's status as the weekend approaches.

Redskins | Chris Thompson does not practice

Wed, 21 Oct 2015 14:05:18 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson's ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) status will be known later in the week, so owners should keep an eye out on his practice participation. Thompson has been more involved in the passing game this season but is not the best option for fantasy owners because of his uncertain status.

Redskins | Chris Thompson day-to-day

Mon, 19 Oct 2015 12:33:38 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) is considered day-to-day because of the back injury he suffered in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Thompson's practice participation during the week to see if he has a chance to play in Week 7. Thompson will have his usual role if he plays this week but may not be the best option for fantasy owners.

Redskins | Chris Thompson leaves early

Sun, 18 Oct 2015 10:38:26 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) suffered a back injury during the team's Week 6 game and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye out on the situation because Thompson has been able to find a role on offense. Alfred Morris could have a bigger role if Thompson is not able to return.

Redskins | Washington run game lacking

Sat, 17 Oct 2015 12:55:35 -0700

Washington Redskins RBs Alfred Morris, Matt Jones, Chris Thompson and the Redskins' offense have only accounted for 266 rushing yards over the last three games.

Fantasy Tip: Chris Thompson has actually been the most valuable Washington running back in recent weeks because of his involvement in the passing game. Alfred Morris ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) and Matt Jones ($3,300, 6.6%) are not the most appealing starts this week against a stingy New York Jets' rush defense. Thompson ($3,200, 6.4%) makes for a good sleeper start, however.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon, Chris Thompson ready

Thu, 15 Oct 2015 14:31:51 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon (knee) and RB Chris Thompson (shoulder) both took part in a full practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) could see even more targets if DeSean Jackson (hamstring) sits out again, but then he'd likely be covered by Darrelle Revis. Garcon is a risk/reward play on FantasyScore. Thompson ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) doesn't look attractive at all against a New York Jets defense allowing 16.0 PPR fantasy points to runners per game (second-fewest).

Redskins | Chris Thompson on the field Wednesday

Wed, 14 Oct 2015 15:08:14 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) should continue to have a role in the running and passing game despite the injury. He has caught at least six passes in two of his last three games and is valuable in point-per-reception leagues. Thompson could be a solid option on FantasyScore even though he is facing a tough New York Jets defense.

Redskins | Chris Thompson active in passing game

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 21:35:08 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson had two carries for 29 yards and eight catches for 57 yards and a touchdown in a 32-21 loss to the New York Giants in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) saw plenty of action after the Redskins fell behind early and threw the ball the ball 49 times. He did appear to be the primary pass-catching back, but that role alone won't make him a viable option at FantasyScore.
