Redskins | Chris Thompson lands on IR

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 09:48:18 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 21.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins have no obvious replacement for Thompson, which likely means they will be forced to rely more heavily on Samaje Perine in the running game. Jamison Crowder has emerged as Kirk Cousins' favorite target in recent weeks and could see even more looks as a result of Thompson's absence.

Redskins | Chris Thompson has fractured leg

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 14:00:05 -0800

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) suffered a fractured fibula in Week 11 against the New Orleans Saints and he will require surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson's excellent season is over, so a majority of the backfield touches will belong to Samaje Perine down the stretch since Rob Kelley (ankle, knee) is also on the Reserve/Injured list.

Redskins | Chris Thompson carted off

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 12:18:01 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) was carted off the field after suffering a right leg injury during the team's Week 11 game.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson's injury appears to be serious, so owners should look for an update in the near future. Samaje Perine likely will receive even more work at running back and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in all leagues.

Redskins | Big games on tap for Chris Thompson?

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 18:31:49 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson faces the New Orleans Saints in Week 11, and the Saints have allowed the sixth-most yards to opposing running backs on screen passes. He faces the New York Giants in Week 12, and the Giants have allowed the second-most yards to running backs on screens. Thompson gained 199 yards off screen passes in the first five games compared to 18 yards in the last four.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson has cooled off following a hot start, and there seems to be a correlation with his lack of production in the screen game. With some solid matchups on the horizon, Thompson should be safe to deploy as a flex option in PPR formats the next two weeks.

Redskins | Samaje Perine is best of the lot

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 18:12:19 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine rushed nine times for a team-high 35 yards in the Week 10 game against the Minnesota Vikings. RB Chris Thompson ran nine times for 26 yards, and RB Rob Kelley had just 10 yards on four totes.

Fantasy Tip: Perine was the best of the trio, but that's not saying much. He also tacked on a 25-yard reception, while Thompson was good for 41 yards on three receptions. Perine remains more of an RB3 or flex play in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, while Thompson has far more appeal in PPR formats.

Redskins | Chris Thompson doesn't do much

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 20:44:24 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed four times for 20 yards in Week 9 against the Seattle Seahawks while adding four grabs for 11 yards on six targets.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't a big day for Thompson, but that's to be expected against the stout Seattle defense. He'll look to rebound in Week 10 against the Vikings. He remains a decent RB3 or flex play in PPR fantasy formats.

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed four times for 18 yards and caught eight passes for 76 yards in a 33-19 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson continues to torch opponents in the passing game, making him a high-end flex play or low-end RB2 in PPR formats.
