Player Notes
Dec 30 10:10am ET

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson saw a total of four touches in Sunday's season finale, putting the finishing touches on another disappointing fantasy campaign. After beginning the season with a relatively productive pass-catching role, Thompson never meshed his way back into the Redskins offense upon his return from injury in the first week of December. He finished the year with just 15 receptions in his final five games, and was only targeted more than four times in one of those. With Thompson set to hit free agency, it will be interesting to see if he signs with a team more inclined to utilize a back with his pass-catching skill set. Prominent offensive role or not, it's hard to have much fantasy success in Washington with the way this team has operated over the last two seasons. Perhaps a change of scenery in 2020 helps reestablish Thompson as a PPR option in fantasy leagues.

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson has not been operating in the pass-catching role that once made him a valuable fantasy play in PPR formats, and now he's run out of time for the 2019 season. Thompson has seen just 17 targets in four games since returning from injury in the first week of December, and the only potential boon to his value in Week 17 is that Case Keenum will finish out the season at quarterback. Thompson was utilized more often early in the season when Keenum ran the offense. In any case, it would be a blind roll of the dice to expect a one-game turnaround in the final week of the season. Thompson simply hasn't shown you what you need to trust him, and should not be considered a safe flex play.

Dec 22 9:33pm ET

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed eight times for 34 yards in Week 16 against the New York Giants and he added four grabs for 18 yards on his four targets.

Fantasy Spin: Thompson has been a decent PPR fantasy option when healthy, but it's hard to gauge his value heading into 2020 until we see what the personnel will look like. He'll try and finish up strong in Week 17 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Dec 20 11:30am ET

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson has been back on the field for three weeks, with no discernible rhyme or reason to his usage rate in this span. He was targeted eight times in a Week 14 loss to the Packers, but that game is sandwiched in between two performances in which he might as well have been a healthy scratch. Even without Derrius Guice in the fold for the last game and a half, Thompson hasn't attempted a rush in either of his last two outings. Even that wouldn't be so detrimental if the Redskins involved him more in the passing game, but that hasn't been there either. Fantasy owners can't bank on a guy who's been an active non-participant in a bad offense, especially with championship trophies on the line.

From RotoBaller

Dec 15 9:10pm ET

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson was sparingly involved in his team's passing attack on Sunday, seeing just three targets and catching two of them. This was disappointing on a number of fronts, starting with the fact that Thompson had led the Redskins in targets and receptions a week ago. Sunday's game was precisely the type of back-and-forth scoring festival in which a pass-catching RB like Thompson would figure to have a healthy share of chances, but instead Thompson saw the same number of targets as Adrian Peterson. If he didn't have a role in this game, it's hard to trust that he'll see any dependable level of work over the season's final two weeks.

From RotoBaller

Dec 13 4:50pm ET

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson's fantasy value for Week 15 is likely to hinge on whether or not Adrian Peterson is able to get anything going on the ground against the Eagles. Philly is one of the least friendly fantasy defenses for running backs, which lends itself to the idea that Peterson may struggle. If such is the case on Sunday, the Redskins may have to turn to Thompson as the pass-catcher in order to move the ball. Dwayne Haskins hasn't shown anything that indicates the Redskins should be ready to trust him to launch the ball downfield for an entire game, so Thompson could be set up for a decent PPR day in the short-range passing game if this contest breaks right for him. He's coming off an eight-target outing in Week 14. Thompson isn't without his fair share of risk, but there is a clear path to opportunity here for fantasy owners scrambling to find a flex option in PPR leagues.

From RotoBaller

Dec 8 8:30pm ET

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson hauled in seven of a team-high eight targets on Sunday against the Packers. He only produced 43 yards, but the sudden uptick in opportunity is a welcome change of pace for the pass-catching back. It's worth noting that Thompson's increased role coincides with an injury that knocked Derrius Guice out of this game, so if the latter is unable to go in Week 15, Thompson may emerge as a fringe flex play in PPR leagues. It may be worth grabbing him off the waiver wire if Guice's outlook for Week 15 is grim, just in case this opportunity is set to continue in a matchup with the Eagles.

From RotoBaller

Dec 8 4:43pm ET

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson caught seven passes for 43 yards against the Green Bay Packers in Week 14. He was targeted eight times during the game.

Fantasy Spin: Thompson will be serving as the receiver out of the backfield with Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice handling the carries. He should continue to be involved in the passing game next week and can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

From TheHuddle

Dec 6 5:43pm ET

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

Fantasy Spin: Thompson was limited to 29 total yards in his return to the lineup last week. He may see more targets in the passing game this week but can be avoided in most leagues.

From TheHuddle

Dec 6 4:33pm ET

Washington Redskins WRs Trey Quinn (concussion), WR Paul Richardson (hamstring) and S Deshazor Everett (shoulder) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 14 versus the Green Bay Packers. LB Ryan Anderson (shoulder), OT Morgan Moses (back), OG Brandon Scherff (shoulder), LB Montez Sweat (quad), LB Cole Holcomb (thumb), LB Ryan Kerrigan (concussion), S Montae Nicholson (ankle), RB Adrian Peterson (toe) and RB Chris Thompson (toe) were able to practice in full Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

From TheHuddle

Dec 6 2:00pm ET

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson was a non-factor in his return from injury last week, and there is little evidence to suggest he'll see much of an uptick in Week 14 against the Packers. Dwayne Haskins is given minimal opportunities to throw the ball for obvious reasons, and it helps that Washington has been able to establish an effective rushing attack of late. Thompson doesn't factor into that rushing attack, so his opportunities to produce fantasy numbers are almost entirely limited to whatever work he sees on passing downs. The Packers could theoretically jump out to an early lead and force the Redskins to throw, in turn boosting Thompson's outlook. That's not worth banking on this late in the season with fantasy championships at stake.

From RotoBaller

Dec 5 5:43pm ET

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 5.

Fantasy Spin: Thompson should receive a handful of touches this week but can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Dec 4 6:53pm ET

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Spin: Thompson returned to the lineup last week but was held to four touches and 29 total yards. He likely will receive more work in the next few games but can be benched if fantasy players have better options.

From TheHuddle

Dec 1 9:00pm ET

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson was held in check on Sunday, accounting for just 29 total yards on four touches. While the per-touch efficiency was certainly there, Thompson wasn't needed much as a pass-catcher in a game the Redskins dominated on the ground with Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice. Thompson will continue to suffer as a fantasy asset anytime game script flows positively in Washington's favor. If the Redskins are enjoying success on the ground, Thompson is likely to fall into the background of the game plan. This is especially true with Dwayne Haskins at quarterback, as the rookie signal-caller hasn't earned himself a great deal of faith throwing the ball. Thompson should be viewed as a matchup-dependent spot-starter in fantasy lineups, and an unsafe one at that.

From RotoBaller

Dec 1 12:10pm ET

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson (toe) is officially active for Week 13 against the Panthers. With Thompson back in the fold to help catch passes out of the backfield, Wendell Smallwood is a healthy scratch this week. The 29-year-old hasn't played since Oct. 13, so he could also have his snaps limited. In Washington's weak offense, Thompson just cannot be trusted as an RB3/flex in his first game back, especially since he'll also be sharing playing time with both Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson. Stay away from this backfield if you can.

From RotoBaller

Dec 1 11:53am ET

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) is active for Week 13's game against the Carolina Panthers.

From TheHuddle

Nov 29 4:13pm ET

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Fantasy Spin: Thompson appears to have a chance to play this week, but fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for his official status. He likely would be used mostly in the passing game if he plays and could be a possible flex option in deeper point-per-reception leagues.

From TheHuddle

Nov 29 3:13pm ET

Washington Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan (concussion) and WR Paul Richardson (hamstring) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 13 versus the Carolina Panthers. DL Daron Payne (ankle) and RB Chris Thompson (toe) were limited in practice all week and are listed as questionable. S Deshazor Everett (concussion), LB Ryan Anderson (shoulder), S Montae Nicholson (ankle), RB Adrian Peterson (toe), OG Brandon Scherff (shoulder), QB Dwayne Haskins (hand), LB Cole Holcomb (thumb), DB Jimmy Moreland (shoulder), OT Morgan Moses (thumb) and CB Josh Norman (hamstring) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 29, and have been removed from the injury report.

From TheHuddle

Nov 29 1:50pm ET

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson (toe) is expected to play in Week 13 against the Panthers. Thompson has been out since Week 6 with turf toe. His return will throw another wrench in a backfield that has already been rotating Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson. Thompson is mostly a pass-catcher on third downs, but he nevertheless will eat into the upside for both Guice and Peterson. There wasn't much upside to begin with for those two in a weak offense led by rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins. Thompson won't be an attractive RB3/flex, even in PPR leagues, since he could have his snaps limited in his return. This backfield is a situation to avoid.

From RotoBaller

Nov 28 3:53pm ET

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) was limited during practices Thursday, Nov. 28.

Fantasy Spin: Thompson has been limited for the last several weeks but has not played since the middle of October. He likely will be a receiver out of the backfield when he returns to the lineup but can be avoided in most leagues.
