Player Outlook

Chris Thompson is expected to be the No. 2 running back in Washington this season behind Matt Jones, but he has to overcome a torn labrum in his shoulder this offseason. He's aiming for training camp to get back on the field, and he should be considered a sleeper in PPR leagues. Thompson also is a great handcuff for Jones, and he's worth drafting with a late-round flier in all formats. In 2015, Thompson had 35 carries for 216 yards and 35 catches for 240 yards and two touchdowns when he was the No. 3 running back behind Alfred Morris and Jones. But he had four games with at least four catches in limited work, and the Redskins could use him more in the passing game this season. He could be a sneaky difference maker in deeper formats.

Player News
  • Thompson, who has signed his exclusive rights tender with Washington, could experience an expanded role in 2016 following the departure of Alfred Morris to the Cowboys. Bit by the injury bug throughout his first three seasons, Thompson finally made his presence felt on the field in 2015, totaling 35 carries for 216 yards, 35 receptions (on 48 targets) for 240 yards, and two touchdown grabs in 13 games. However, he required surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder on Jan. 27, which is poised to impact his availability throughout the offseason program. Although he may lack for reps in May and June, Thompson is expected to serve as a change-of-pace option to Matt Jones at the start of training camp, assuming no more additions to the backfield.

  • Redskins' Chris Thompson: Aiming for training camp
    By RotoWire Staff

    Thompson (shoulder) is aiming to be healthy at the outset of training camp, Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. After missing three games due to neck and shoulder issues in his third NFL season, Thompson underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder on Jan. 27. In the midst of rehab, it's unclear if he'll be able to take part in offseason activities, but considering his recent remark, the ultimate goal appears to be clearance once training camp rolls around. Meanwhile, Washington's backfield is currently headed by Thompson and Matt Jones (groin), though there's always the chance that Alfred Morris returns at the right price. No matter the RB additions made in the coming months, Thompson displayed his versatility last season, recording 35 carries for 216 yards (6.2 YPC), 35 receptions (on 48 targets) for 240 yards, and two touchdown catches.

  • Thompson will undergo surgery on the torn labrum in his left shoulder Wednesday, The Washington Times reports. When healthy, Thompson showed off his chops as both a runner and pass-catcher this season, but a crowded backfield contained him to just 35 rushes and 35 receptions. Further hindering his overall output were injuries to his neck and shoulder that forced three DNPs over the course of the campaign, the latter of which is being remedied Wednesday. While his offseason will include rehabilitation, Washington brass must make a decision on the exclusive rights free agent as well as unrestricted free agent Alfred Morris, which ultimately impact Thompson's potential workload in 2016.

  • Thompson caught all eight of the passes that came his way for 89 yards and added a 25-yard run in Sunday's loss to the Packers. Thompson caught five of his passes during the final six minutes of the game with the Green Bay defense dropping into deep zones and catch-and-run opportunities open. Thompson ranked fourth on the team in receptions and fifth in targets during the regular season. He could see added looks in 2016 should Matt Jones take over the starting role and Alfred Morris depart, opening up the No. 2 back job.

  • Redskins' Chris Thompson: Active Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Thompson (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday at Dallas. With Matt Jones (hip) out of commission, Thompson will vie with Alfred Morris and Pierre Thomas (knee) for touches out of the backfield in the season finale. Thompson has been more serviceable as a receiver than a runner this season, but Morris may only make a cameo, meaning Thompson could be handed a sprinkling of carries as well.
