    Washington Redskins WR Chris Thompson (back) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Thompson should have his normal role in Week 3 and will be used in the running and passing game. He would have a bigger role if Rob Kelley is inactive and can be at least a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 9/20/2017 3:20pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Thompson appears to be on track to play in Week 3 and could receive a bigger role if Rob Kelley is not able to play. He recorded 106 total yards and two touchdowns in Week 2 and should be a solid flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 9/19/2017 9:14am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson is expected to see more work going forward, but head coach Jay Gruden warned reporters the team doesn't 'want to go crazy with him' given his 5-8, 190-pound frame.

    Huddle Up: Thompson has turned six carries and seven catches into 162 total yards and two touchdowns through two weeks, giving the offense quite the spark despite limited work. He's definitely worked his way into flex consideration in all formats, but owners need to understand Gruden doesn't want him becoming a full-time back, so a Darren Sproles-like role is probably the best they can hope for from him.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 9:27pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed three times for 77 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 2 at L.A. Rams and he added three catches for 29 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Thompson is certainly paying dividends for fantasy owners as an RB3 or flex fantasy play in PPR formats. He'll look to keep it going in Week 3 against the Raiders on Sunday Night Football.

  • Posted: 9/15/2017 3:19pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Thompson should receive most of his playing as a third-down back and will be involved in the passing game. He can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues but may not be a great option in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 9/14/2017 1:39pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Thompson did most of his damage in the passing game in Week 1 where he posted for 52 receiving yards and one touchdown. He will continue to be third-down back for the Redskins and can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 9/13/2017 1:47pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) was able to practice in full on Wednesday, Sept. 13.

    Huddle Up: Thompson picked up just four yards on three carries, but his biggest contribution was in the pass game where he added 52 yards on four catches with a touchdown. He is a decent flex option in PPR formats heading into Week 2 against the Rams, with lesser value in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 9/5/2017 9:49am ET

    Correcting a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson signed a two-year contract extension Tuesday, Sept. 5. While some of the financial details were undisclosed, the deal reportedly include $6.5 million guaranteed.

    Huddle Up: Thompson is the Redskins' unquestioned third-down option and has openly campaigned for more of a role on early downs. Whether he gets that chance remains to be seen with Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine in front of him, but Thompson is a worthy RB4 option in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 9/5/2017 8:17am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson signed a contract extension Tuesday, Sept. 5. Terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: He has predominately been a third-down option, but his role is expected to expand a bit. He's a depth back with some upside in PPR leagues.

  • Posted: 5/22/2017 6:00am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson is expecting a bigger workload this season because he proved to head coach Jay Gruden that he was durable.

    Huddle Up: Thompson is a sneaky PPR option after he posted 5.2 yards per carry and a 68-356-3 rushing line with a 49-349-2 receiving line. He'll play second fiddle to Rob Kelley, but he could be a solid RB4.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 4:16pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed three times for 20 yards and caught one pass for 17 yards, but he accounted for each of his team's first two touchdowns in a Week 16 win over the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: While this performance didn't come out of thin air, Thompson hasn't been useful in fantasy in about two months. It's a bummer for Rob Kelley owners, however, as it could be argued Thompson's first touchdown (from seven yards out) or Kirk Cousins' third-quarter TD on a quarterback sneak were plays Kelley usually gets the ball. Thompson is a low-end flex at best in Week 17 against the New York Giants.

  • Posted: 10/26/2016 7:07pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson is not expected to start in Week 8 game against the Cincinnati Bengals in London, even if RB Matt Jones (knee) cannot start. 'Chris (Thompson) has such an important role as far as third downs and his specialty role that we need him in that role, and he's not a very big guy. We don't want to give him the ball 35 times between the tackles, you know? We'd like to have a more physical guy do it.'

    Huddle Up: If Jones is unable to go, Rob Kelley is the tailback to target for the Redskins. He might be a solid sleeper as a flex option in Week 8 against a Cincinnati Bengals rush defense allowing 118.4 yards per game, 24th in the NFL.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 5:50pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed 12 times for 73 yards in the Week 7 game against the Detroit Lions, and he added seven receptions for 40 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Thompson outperformed Matt Jones, who was mostly bottled up in the loss. Thompson's fantasy value is trending upward, and he is worth scooping up off the waiver wire heading into Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals if he is available. He has flex appeal for the game in London.
