    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed three times for 23 yards and caught three of his five targets for 15 yards in a 40-16 loss to the New York Giants in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Even with Washington playing from behind, Thompson wasn't much of a factor. He's yet to make a substantial impact since returning from injury, and he needs to be left on the bench until he starts producing again.

  • Posted: 12/3/2018 10:34pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson finished with just three rushing yards on three attempts while also bringing in three receptions for 18 yards in the team's Week 13 loss Monday, Dec. 3, against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Thompson was playing in his first game since the end of October, but didn't exactly reward his fantasy owners for their patience, clocking in with one of his lowest yardage totals of the season. With the Redskins now down to Mark Sanchez at quarterback, it's hard to justify starting Thompson in any fantasy playoff matchup.

  • Posted: 12/1/2018 8:07pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) was a full participant in practice Saturday, Dec. 1, and he was not listed on the Week 13 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Thompson has missed the last four games, and while his workload could be a little lighter in his first game back, he still has flex appeal in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 11/30/2018 3:36pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Thompson should be able to handle a normal workload this week after missing several games because of his injury. He can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues this week.

  • Posted: 11/29/2018 4:46pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 29.

    Huddle Up: Thompson likely will have a role in the passing game if he is active for the Week 13 game. Owners in point-per-reception leagues can consider Thompson as a possible flex option.

  • Posted: 11/29/2018 12:33pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) has looked good running this week and is expected to play, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Thompson has missed six games this year due to rib injuries.

    Huddle Up: Thompson is a game changer for the Redskins when he's playing. He hasn't played with Colt McCoy under center yet this year, but McCoy can utilize the pass-catching back as one of his safety blankets. If Thompson is active he's in the PPR RB2 or flex conversation.

  • Posted: 11/26/2018 3:50pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) said he is encouraged by his recovery and hopes to be able to play in the Week 13 game.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation over the next several days to see if Thompson will be able to practice. He will be a risky option since the Redskins play on Monday Night Football and could be benched this week even if he does play.

  • Posted: 11/26/2018 9:25am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs) was back at practice Monday, Nov. 26.

    Huddle Up: Johnson has been sidelined since Week 8, so he'll probably need some time to knock off some rust. Nevertheless, a return to practice Monday gives him a full week to get ready for the Redskins' game next Monday against the Philadelphia Eagles. Adrian Peterson has emerged as the workhorse in Philadelphia, however, leaving Thompson as little more than a high-upside RB3 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 11/21/2018 11:16am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) was ruled out for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: He could return to the fold in Week 13 with another week-and-a-half of rest. Keep him rostered for now.

  • Posted: 11/19/2018 5:07pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) did not participate in practice Monday, Nov. 19. The Redskins did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Thompson likely will miss at least one more game because of his injury and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/15/2018 2:11pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: It looks like Thompson will not be able to play this week, so owners should avoid him in all leagues. The only Redskins running back that should be a fantasy option this week is Adrian Peterson.

  • Posted: 11/15/2018 10:21am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs) was seen in the rehab area during the team's practice Thursday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Thompson has played in only one game and received five touches since Week 5, and until we see more progress otherwise, plan on not having him available.

  • Posted: 11/14/2018 3:32pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 14.

  • Posted: 11/14/2018 12:42pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs) was absent from practice Wednesday, Nov. 14, and has a good chance of being held out this week, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Thompson has been bothered by his ribs for a few weeks now. Kapri Bibbs has filled in as the pass-catching back in his place, but only carries flex value in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 11/12/2018 7:35pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs) said he is still dealing with pain from his injured ribs and that he will not know about his status for Week 11 until later in the week.

    Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on Thompson's practice participation to see if he has a chance to play in Week 11. He would be a risky option if he plays, so owners may want to look for other options to use and avoid Thompson this week.

  • Posted: 11/8/2018 12:11pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) has been ruled out for Week 10.

    Huddle Up: As noted earlier, Kapri Bibbs will handle the change-of-pace role for the Redskins with Thompson out. He possesses flex appeal in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 11/8/2018 10:23am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) missed his second straight practice Thursday, Nov. 8.

    Huddle Up: Thompson is headed towards a doubtful designation. If that comes to fruition then Kapri Bibbs would back up Adrian Peterson for the second time in as many weeks. View Bibbs as a PPR flex if Thompson is ruled out.

  • Posted: 11/7/2018 4:54pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 7.

    Huddle Up: Thompson likely will need to practice at some point this week if he wants to play, so owners should monitor his practice participation. Owners probably should look for other options for their lineups and can keep Thompson on the bench.

  • Posted: 11/2/2018 9:49am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs) missed practice Friday, Nov. 2.

    Huddle Up: Thompson has played in only one game and received five touches since getting injured in a Week 5 loss to the Saints, and with the back missing practice this week, his fantasy owners likely will again need to make other plans in Week 9.

  • Posted: 11/1/2018 4:08pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 1.

    Huddle Up: Thompson probably will not be able to play if he does not practice Friday, Nov. 2, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He probably would see limited playing time if he is active and can be avoided in all leagues.

  • Posted: 10/31/2018 4:09pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 31.

    Huddle Up: Thompson suffered a new injury in the last game, so his status for Week 9 is uncertain. He would be mainly part of the passing game if he is able to play and may only be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 10/29/2018 12:54pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) injured a rib on the other side of his rib cage from where he was already hurt. Whether or not he plays depends on how well he can handle the pain.

    Huddle Up: Thompson clearly isn't 100% and it might benefit the Redskins to rest him for at least another week. Adrian Peterson is playing superbly at 33 years old and Kapri Bibbs could fill in for Thompson in the meantime. Track Thompson's status throughout the week, but be prepared to sit him.

  • Posted: 10/28/2018 2:41pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed for 13 yards on three carries against the New York Giants in Week 8. He also caught two passes for nine yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Thompson is coming back from injury, so he may have been limited during the game. He has a solid role when he is healthy and could be a flex option next week against the Atlanta Falcons.

  • Posted: 10/27/2018 9:24pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib, knee) is expected to play against the New York Giants in Week 8, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Thompson offers some potential as a PPR flex option, but if Washington jumps on top early, they have already shown that they will ride Adrian Peterson.

  • Posted: 10/26/2018 12:42pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (knee, rib) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 26, but is listed as questionable for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Thompson appears to have a good chance to play this week, but owners will have to wait for the inactive list to determine his official status. He likely will be used as a receiver out of the backfield if he plays and could be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 10/25/2018 7:22pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib/knee) is hoping to face the New York Giants in Week 8, but head coach Jay Gruden said he is 'playing it by ear' when it comes to Thompson's availability.

    Huddle Up: Thompson hasn't carried the ball much with Adrian Peterson shouldering much of the load, but his role in the passing game makes him a flex candidate in PPR formats if he is able to return to the field in Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/25/2018 4:01pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (knee, rib) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 25.

    Huddle Up: Thompson has missed some time because of the injuries but appears to have a chance to play this week. He can be a flex option in fantasy leagues if he is active because he should have a role in the passing game.

  • Posted: 10/24/2018 4:06pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (knee, rib) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 24.

    Huddle Up: Thompson has missed a few games because of the injury but appears to have a chance to play this week. He would be used mostly as a receiver out of the backfield if he plays and could be a valuable option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 10/20/2018 9:14pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib, knee) isn't expected to play against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 7, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: With Thompson unlikely to suit up and Adrian Peterson in line to play, the latter should be a solid bet for RB2 production.

  • Posted: 10/19/2018 2:29pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs, knee) was limited in practice for a third straight day Friday, Oct. 19 and he is considered questionable for Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Thompson is a question mark and probably should be avoided in most fantasy leagues. However, monitor his status heading into Sunday. If he is active and Adrian Peterson (ankle, shoulder) does not play, Thompson could have a surprisingly good day.

  • Posted: 10/18/2018 1:46pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (knee, rib) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Thompson could be a game-time decision this week, so owners should monitor the situation over the next few days. Thompson is a valuable option in point-per-reception leagues when he plays and could be a flex option in Week 7 if he is active.

  • Posted: 10/17/2018 12:16pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib, knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: If Thompson can stay on the practice field throughout the week then it will be a good sign for his availability this Sunday. When healthy he's a solid PPR RB2 candidate.

  • Posted: 10/13/2018 8:51pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs, knee) is listed as questionable to face the Carolina Panthers in Week 6, but he is not expected to play, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: With Thompson out, Adrian Peterson should see plenty of touches against Carolina. Peterson has been dealing with injuries of his own, but he is expected to play and has RB2 potential.

  • Posted: 10/12/2018 12:40pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (knee, rib) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 12, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Thompson will be able to play this week. He could be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues if he plays but is not a must-start player in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/11/2018 4:09pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib, knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Despite getting injured in Monday night's loss to the Saints, Thompson looks like he'll be able to play this weekend versus Carolina. Owners should also watch the status of his backfield mate Adrian Peterson, who is dealing with a slew of injuries of his own. Thompson could be a very nice RB2 play if Peterson is sidelined.

  • Posted: 10/8/2018 9:04pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs) suffered a rib injury in the Week 5 game against the New Orleans Saints on Monday, Oct. 8. He finished with eight runs for 17 yards and six grabs for 45 yards on eight targets.

    Huddle Up: Thompson was the only running back seeing playing time in the second half with the game out of hand, especially because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. It's uncertain if he'll be good to go for Week 6 against the Panthers.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 9:05pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed for 17 yards on six carries and hauled in only one pass for no gain in Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Thompson was a top-10 fantasy back in PPR leagues through two weeks, so this performance was not expected. Mainly a passing-game weapon out of the backfield, he will have occasional games like this when game script remains in Washington's favor all day. And this was one of those days, as Washington held a double-digit lead for the final 47:14 of the game. Thompson figures to be much more involved in Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints after the Redskins come off their Week 4 bye.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 1:57pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson hauled in 13 receptions for 92 yards on 14 targets in the Week 2 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Thompson was extremely busy on the short routes, as the Redskins passed frequently in the second half trying to get back into the game. He has 19 receptions already through the first two outings, making him a strong RB2 in all PPR formats heading into Week 3 against the Packers.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 9:12pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed five times for 65 yards and caught six passes for 63 yards and a touchdown in a 24-6 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Thompson won't be able to remain this efficient with his touches all year, but he should a weekly flex option in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 9/5/2018 12:05pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) is not listed on the team's injury report heading into the regular season opener.

    Huddle Up: Thompson was recovering from a leg injury during training camp and the preseason, taking it slow to avoid any setbacks. He is set to work as the third-down back in Washington's offense, sitting behind Adrian Peterson and Rob Kelley on the overall depth chart. Thompson is a decent RB4 in PPR formats, but he can be mostly avoided in standard play.

  • Posted: 8/5/2018 7:19am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) will not play in the preseason opener against the New England Patriots Thursday, Aug. 9, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Thompson has been recovering from a broken fibula but the team is hopeful he will be ready for the start of the regular season. He is expected to serve as Washington's third-down back and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3 in PPR fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/1/2018 7:31pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) should be ready for the start of the regular season, but head coach Jay Gruden said he is not sure if Thompson will be limited during the early part of the season.

    Huddle Up: Thompson is recovering from a broken leg but likely will be used as a receiver out of the backfield this season. He recorded 39 receptions in 10 games last season and can be a No. 3 running back or flex option in point-per-reception leagues because he should receive a solid amount of targets.

  • Posted: 7/31/2018 4:38pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) said he won't be fully recovered from his broken fibula until November - a whole year after suffering the injury.

    Huddle Up: Thompson avoided the PUP list, but that clearly doesn't mean he's full go. Derrius Guice will shoulder the load on the ground, but Thompson should be able to maintain his third-down role. He has PPR RB2 potential when healthy, but drafting him as a PPR RB3 is more prudent.

  • Posted: 7/23/2018 2:54pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) said he's feeling well for the starting of training camp but that he will take his participation slowly and focus on being ready for the regular season.

    Huddle Up: Thompson is an invaluable offensive tool for Washington. He'll maintain his role as a pass-catching back as a complement to rookie Derrius Guice. Achieving RB2 PPR status is entirely realistic.

  • Posted: 6/6/2018 5:43pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) has made 'unbelievable progress,' according to head coach Jay Gruden. He's 'fully expected' for training camp.

    Huddle Up: Thompson suffered a pretty serious season-ending injury last November when he fractured his fibula, but miraculously, it looks like he'll not only be 100 percent going into the season, but he figures to be on a normal practice schedule as well through the summer. Despite being in a crowded backfield, Thompson will have a regular defined role that puts him in the RB2/FLEX conversation.

  • Posted: 5/17/2018 7:44pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice will likely be the starter according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com, but Rosenthal said it 'wouldn't be a surprise' if RB Chris Thompson ended up playing more snaps this year.

    Huddle Up: Prior to his injury last year, Thompson had emerged as a dynamic weapon in the passing game. Expect the same role for Thompson in 2018, and he should be an excellent flex option in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 3/26/2018 10:14pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) said on his Twitter account that he was able to 'run on the field' Monday, March 26, his first time doing so since he had surgery to repair a broken right fibula in December.

    Huddle Up: Thompson was on pace to set career-high marks in all major categories last year before suffering the unfortunate injury that ended his season. At the very least, he did prove himself to be a useful piece for Washington's running game, and since the club hasn't added any tailbacks, he should be able to resume his role once he's healthy again. Thompson totaled six touchdowns in 10 games and figures to at least carry use as a FLEX option.

  • Posted: 2/28/2018 1:27pm ET

    Washington Redskins RBs Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson will have new company in 2018 if senior vice president of player personnel Doug Williams has his way. Williams said the Redskins undoubtedly have to upgrade at the position.

    Huddle Up: This year's crop of rookie running backs is fairly deep, so Washington could address the need that way. Perine and Thompson should still have integral roles in the offense, though. Thompson is a PPR stud, but let's wait to gauge their fantasy value until there's a clearer picture of the position's depth.

  • Posted: 2/8/2018 10:43pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) is confident he'll be able to return to his former self once he's fully healed from his broken leg. 'So it's just more of me being patient with it, with the rehab, and just kind of being smart,' he said in a radio interview. 'I'm known to want to progress as fast as I can, so I think if I just stay patient with the process and everything I should be back to what I was before.'

    Huddle Up: Thompson's owners would love to see him build on what was shaping up to be a real solid 2017 campaign for the fourth-year running back. He was well on pace towards shattering career highs in all major categories before going down for the year with his injury, but his future looks bright nonetheless. Even with Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine still under contract, Thompson could end up ascending to lead Washington's backfield.

  • Posted: 1/15/2018 10:32pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) said he's 'feeling good' while rehabbing from a fractured fibula that he sustained back in November in a game against the New Orleans Saints. He remains on pace to return by training camp.

    Huddle Up: Thompson was arguably the Redskins' best offensive player this year before going down due to injury, logging career bests in touchdowns (six) and total yards from scrimmage (804). Even if he has to share the workload again in Washington's backfield next season, he's still going to make for a solid sleeper pick in drafts leading up to the 2018 campaign.
