Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson (toe) and tight end Vernon Davis (concussion) have both been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Vikings. Davis was limited in practice all week, but Thompson didn't practice at all and isn't a lock to return in Week 9. Davis appears to be making progress, but fantasy owners can't rely on him as anything more than a touchdown-dependent TE2 when he's on the field in one of the worst offenses in football. Jeremy Sprinkle will continue to be the team's top pass-catching tight end with Davis out, but he's a desperation option at the tight end position. Jordan Reed (concussion) has yet to play this year and his career is in jeopardy.
Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 23, and has been ruled out for Week 8.
Fantasy Spin: Wendell Smallwood will continue to fill in for Thompson in the offense and could receive even a bigger role if Adrian Peterson is not able to play. Smallwood probably can be avoided in most leagues if Peterson is active for the game.
Washington Redskins S Deshazor Everett (ankle), LB Josh Harvey-Clemons (hamstring), OG Wes Martin (chest), S Montae Nicholson (ankle), CB Josh Norman (thigh, hand), Adrian Peterson (ankle) and RB Chris Thompson (toe) did not practice Tuesday, Oct. 22. WR Steven Sims Jr. (toe) and TE Vernon Davis (concussion) were limited. LB Ryan Kerrigan (elbow) and QB Case Keenum (shoulder, foot) participated fully in practice. OT Donald Penn (non-injury) was not given a practice designation after being limited one day earlier.
Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 21. The Redskins did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Fantasy Spin: Thompson did not practice last week and missed Week 7, so he may be facing an uphill battle to play in Week 8 . Wendell Smallwood likely will fill in for Thompson again this week but probably can be avoided in most leagues.
The Washington Redskins have declared CB Deshazor Everett, CB Josh Norman, SS Josh Harvey-Clemons, TE Vernon Davis, RB Chris Thompson, OG Wes Martin and QB Colt McCoy inactive for Week 7.
Washington Redskins WR Wendell Smallwood has the ability to handle RB Chris Thompson's (toe) duties on passing downs against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7, according to offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell.
Fantasy Spin: With Thompson sidelined, Smallwood could be headed for the handful of catches and 50-plus total yards typically reserved for Thompson, but he's still just a DFS lottery ticket for fantasy purposes.
Washington Redskins S Deshazor Everett (ankle), LB Josh Harvey-Clemons (hamstring), OG Wes Martin (chest) and RB Chris Thompson (toe) were unable to practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers. TE Vernon Davis (concussion) was limited all week and has also been ruled out. CB Josh Norman (thigh, hand) did not practice all week but is listed as questionable. QB Case Keenum (right shoulder, foot) and RB Adrian Peterson (quad) fully participated in practice for a second straight day Friday, Oct. 18, and have been removed from the injury report. OT Donald Penn (non-injury) was not given a practice designation for a second straight day on Friday but also no longer appears on the injury report.
Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson (toe) has officially been ruled out for Week 7 against the 49ers. Thompson is dealing with turf toe, so he could also wind up missing Week 8 and potentially beyond. It means that Adrian Peterson will handle the early downs, with Wendell Smallwood chipping in on passing downs. However, neither running back is a good fantasy weapon against a 49ers Defense that has yet to allow a rushing or receiving touchdown to a running back this year. Smallwood should be faded in deep PPR leagues, even if you're desperate.
Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) on Friday, Oct. 18, was ruled out of Week 7 with a toe injury.
Fantasy Spin: This will be Thompson's first missed game of the season, and it likely spells more work for fellow RB Adrian Peterson, who's a RB2 consideration vs. the 49ers.
Washington Redskins S Deshazor Everett (ankle), LB Josh Harvey-Clemons (hamstring) OG Wes Martin (chest), CB Josh Norman (thigh, hand) and RB Chris Thompson (toe) were unable to practice for a second straight day Thursday, Oct. 17. TE Vernon Davis (concussion) was limited. QB Case Keenum (right shoulder, foot) and RB Adrian Peterson (quad) returned to a full practice. OT Donald Penn (non-injury) was not given a practice designation Thursday after being limited one day earlier.
Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) missed a second straight day of practice Thursday, Oct. 17.
Fantasy Spin: Thompson will likely need to get back on the practice field Friday instill any Week 7 confidence. But even if he does, he's been trending in the wrong direction in games of late and is nothing more than a deep-league PPR flex consideration.
Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson (toe) remained sidelined at practice for the second straight day Thursday. It's looking unlikely that Thompson plays in Week 7 against the 49ers while dealing with a minor case of turf toe. Adrian Peterson should see another heavy workload this Sunday, but it might not matter against San Fran's strong defensive front. If Thompson is inactive this weekend, expect Wendell Smallwood to handle most of the pass-catching duties out of the backfield. He'd strictly be a desperation RB3/flex in deep PPR leagues.
Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 16.
Fantasy Spin: Thompson totaled just 20 yards on the ground and through the air in Week 6. He should be off the fantasy radar except in the deepest of PPR leagues.
Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) was diagnosed with a mild case of turf toe and his availability for Week 7 is 'in some doubt,' according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Fantasy Spin: It couldn't be much worse timing for fantasy owners or the Redskins, as they are about ready to start a three-game stretch leading into the team's Week 10 in which Thompson figured to be quite busy. Wendell Smallwood is the most likely candidate to pick up the majority of snaps in the passing game if Thompson can't go, and he would be worth a flex play for however long Thompson needs to recover if that ends up being the case.
Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (foot) underwent an MRI on his injured foot Monday, Oct. 14. The team is reportedly still awaiting the results.
Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson touched the ball a season-low five times for 20 total yards on Sunday. Washington's success on the ground with Adrian Peterson minimized the need to turn to Thompson as often as usual in the passing game, and he naturally turned in his worst fantasy outing of the season. For his fantasy owners, it's worth taking Week 6 with a grain of salt. The Redskins' opponent was the Dolphins, after all. Up next is a brutal three-game stretch against the 49ers, Vikings, and Bills. Thompson should reprise his role as a pass-catching threat in those matchups, as Peterson isn't likely to run all over those teams like he did to the Dolphins.
Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson posted three runs for 12 yards and two grabs for eight yards on three targets in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins. He left the game with a foot injury late in the game.
Fantasy Spin: Interim head coach Bill Callahan rode Adrian Peterson hard, with all other running backs taking a backseat. We'll see if that continues into Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers, but the change in coaching, and perhaps philosophy, is an ominous sign for Thompson's fantasy owners.
Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (foot) suffered a foot injury during the Week 6 game and is considered questionable to return.
Fantasy Spin: Thompson has been used mostly as a receiver out of the backfield and has posted at least 50 yards in three of the five previous game entering Week 6. He is a solid flex option in point-per-reception leagues if he is healthy.
Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson has been the one constant in a volatile offense this season. No matter how bad things have gotten, Thompson has seen at least five targets in every game and is averaging an even seven. He trails only Terry McLaurin for the overall team lead on a per-game basis. Moreover, his only truly dreadful fantasy day came in Week 5 against New England. He's turned his opportunities into at least 48 receiving yards in four of five games. If he could just get into the endzone once in awhile, his overall fantasy output would look much better. Case Keenum will be back under center this week, and Thompson's receiving numbers in three games with Keenum as the full-time QB are as follows: 16 catches, 23 targets, 195 yards. Consider Thompson a PPR flex option against a Miami defense that has already given up three receiving touchdowns to running backs.
Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson was tied with Terry McLaurin for the team lead in targets at seven each in Sunday's defeat. While Thompson only turned the volume into five catches for 17 yards, the silver lining here is that it doesn't appear to matter much who the Redskins play at quarterback. Thompson is likely to maintain a featured pass-catching role regardless, which in turn renders him one of the few players in this offense worth fantasy consideration. Up next for Thompson is the Dolphins in a matchup with number-one-pick-at-the-2020-draft implications. Thompson could reasonably be expected to return PPR value in Week 6 if his team can stop spinning its wheels on offense.
