2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
A gruesome broken right fibula Week 12 prematurely ended Thompson's 2017 season, cutting short an impressive career year for the former Florida State Seminole. Despite missing six games, Thompson set career marks for receiving yards and touchdowns (510, 4), while averaging an impressive 11.6 fantasy points per game based on FF Today Default Scoring. Not only was Thompson skilled as the third/passing down back for Jay Gruden, he also earned more first and second down touches in the Redskin offense due to the injuries and ineffective running by Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine.

With the Redskins using their second-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft to select Derrius Guice, the path for touches from Thompson will likely be limited to passing and third down work. Guice is a talented runner, but he has a way to go with regards to pass protection and catching the ball out of the backfield.

Despite having a set role with limited upside rushing the ball and questions surrounding his ability to return to form after the broken leg, Thompson will have flex value in PPR leagues with the upside of more work should Guice suffer rookie struggles.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jamison Crowder listed as questionable
Did more work on Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 9, 1:00 pm

Washington Redskins
Running back Chris Thompson (rib)and left tackle Trent Williams (thumb) have been ruled out for Sunday. Those listed as questionable: WR Jamison Crowder, CB Quinton Dunbar and right tackle Morgan Moses. Crowder did more work today; Moses took some team reps. (John Keim on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Redskins are thin at wide receiver with Paul Richardson (shoulder) being placed on IR. Josh Doctson and Marice Harris worked as the top receiving options last week. Crowder would kill Harris' fantasy if he's able to go in Week 10 against the Bucs.


Injury Chris Thompson a no-go for Week 10
Fourth absence in the last five games
By: Doug Orth | Fri Nov 9, 1:20 am

Washington Redskins
Redskins RB Chris Thompson has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay. This isn't a surprise given his rib issues and has missed three of the last four games. Kapri Bibbs will continue in the third down role. (ESPN - John Keim)

FFToday's Take: The change-of-pace/passing-down back role in Washington has taken on added importance recently, as the Redskins' offensive line has been decimated by injury. While Adrian Peterson has shown the ability to catch the ball this season, Thompson's continued absence means Kapri Bibbs should be in line for at least five to eight touches and potentially more against the high-scoring Buccaneers. Given the likely game script, Bibbs could be a high-end flex option this week.


Injury Chris Thompson not expected to play
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 21, 7:05 am

Washington Redskins
Redskins’ RB Chris Thompson, listed as questionable for Sunday due to rib and knee injuries, is not expected to play vs. Cowboys, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Thompson was on the practice field this week but will be inactive. In his absence, Kapri Bibbs will handle backup running back duties behind Adrian Peterson. Bibbs is a desperation Flex play in PPR leagues.


Injury Crowder out, Paul Richardson doubtful
Redskins thin at receiver
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 19, 1:30 pm

Washington Redskins
Redskins WR Jamison Crowder out Sunday vs. Dallas and could miss a little time, coach Jay Gruden said. Receiver Paul Richardson is doubtful with his shoulder/knee. Running backs Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson both are questionable as is Quinton Dunbar. (John Keim on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Redskins are thin at receiver with Josh Doctson, Maurice Harris, Michael Floyd and Brian Quick being the options at the position for Alex Smith. Harris is likely to see the most snaps in the slot with Floyd playing the Z position for Richardson. None of these players are recommended fantasy options.


Injury Redskins down Chris Thompson and Crowder
Redskins thin at the skill positions
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 14, 1:10 am

Washington Redskins
Redskins’ WR Jamison Crowder, listed as questionable for Sunday with an ankle injury, is not expected to play vs. the Panthers. So the Redskins expect to be down Chris Thompson and Crowder. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Redskins are banged up at the offensive skill positions with Adrian Peterson (ribs), Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson all questionable. Kapri Bibbs could see some work in the running game and extra targets could be coming Jordan Reed's way in the passing game.


Injury Washington RBs injured on bad throws
Alex Smith's "hospitals balls" claim Chris Thompson, Adrian Peter
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 9, 8:09 am

Washington Redskins
Two Washington running backs left Monday night’s 43-19 loss to the New Orleans Saints -- Chris Thompson and Adrian Peterson. Both injuries were the result of poor throws buy Alex Smith, who left the pass catchers vulnerable to big hits from defenders. Peterson suffered a dislocated shoulder in the first half and did not have a second half carry, finishing with six yards on four rushing attempts. He is scheduled to have an MRI on Tuesday. Chris Thompson was also shaken up, suffering a rib injury on an attempted two-point conversion in the fourth quarter. He finished with a team-high six receptions for 45 yards and added eight rushes for 17 yards. (Washington Post)

FFToday's Take: Kapri Bibbs filled in down the stretch and would assume a bugger workload were either back miss Week 6. Samaje Perine could also be activated.
