Redskins' Chris Thompson: Put on notice with draft pick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryce Love (knee) may eventually replace Thompson as Washington's passing-down back, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

At his best, Thompson is one of the better blocking and receiving backs in the NFL, but he's entering the final year of his contract after missing 12 games the past two seasons. He was already stuck in a crowded backfield with Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice (knee) before the Redskins used a fourth-round pick on Love, who may be headed for a 2019 redshirt after suffering a torn ACL in December. The Stanford product had first-round buzz after finishing as runner-up for the Heisman Trophy in 2017, but he was never a prolific pass catcher (49 receptions in 49 games) and managed just 4.5 yards per carry his senior season. While the 28-year-old Thompson isn't likely to get a contract extension, it's too early to assume he has no future in Washington beyond 2019.

Redskins' Chris Thompson: Glad Peterson is staying with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson is pleased with his team's decision to re-sign fellow running back Adrian Peterson, Zach Brook of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Peterson figures to impact Derrius Guice (knee) more so than Thompson, considering the latter gets most of his playing time on passing downs. Of course, it's still another body that demands snaps in the backfield, and the Washington offense probably won't have a ton of yards and touchdowns to go around. The team did at least get some security under center with the trade for Case Keenum, whose shortcomings as a passer likely will impact the wide receivers rather than the running backs or tight ends. Thompson thus stands a decent chance to regain his 2016 level of production, but the circumstances don't point toward a repeat of his breakout 2017 campaign (80.4 scrimmage yards, 0.6 touchdowns per game). It's also worth noting that the 28-year-old has played more than 13 games just once in his six NFL seasons.

Redskins' Chris Thompson: Struggles in bad offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson played 10 games in 2018, compiling 43 carries for 178 yards (4.1 average) along with 41 catches for 268 yards (6.5 average) and a touchdown on 55 targets.

Thompson had two fewer catches and 21 more carries in the same number of appearances (10) during his breakout 2017 campaign, producing 4.6 yards per carry and 13.1 per reception with six total touchdowns before he broke his leg Week 11. Coming back from the severe injury and stuck in a lousy Washington offense, the 28-year-old scatback took a massive step backward in 2018, losing five touchdowns and 50 percent of his YPR mark from the previous season. While the 2017 breakout was largely built on a few long gains, Thompson does offer considerable rebound appeal for 2019, as he's averaged 5.4 carries and 5.5 targets per game in 20 appearances over the past two seasons. That kind of workload should at least put him in the conversation as a late-round target in 2019 drafts, with potential to significantly outperform his draft slot if the Redskins can fix the rest of their offense.

Redskins' Chris Thompson: Accrues 28 scrimmage yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson tallied four rushes for 20 yards and one catch (on one target) for eight yards in Saturday's 25-16 loss at Tennessee.

Since ending a four-game absence and logging 64 percent of the offensive snaps Week 13, Thompson has settled into a workload in the 36-43 percent range over the last three contests. During those outings, he's combined for 79 yards from scrimmage and no TDs on 17 touches, which is well behind Adrian Peterson's 217 scrimmage yards and no scores on 59 touches in the same span. Thompson clearly is behind Peterson in terms of usage and therefore doesn't hold much sway in the Redskins' 28th-ranked offense (313.7 yards per game).

Redskins' Chris Thompson: Quiet in Week 15 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (illness) rushed five times for nine yards and caught one of two targets for four yards in Sunday's 16-13 win over Jacksonville.

Thompson wasn't a major part of the game plan as neither offense found much success. He's likely to cede the majority of rushing work to Adrian Peterson against the Titans in Week 16 if things stay close, but is more capable of making an impact as a receiver out of the backfield if the Redskins find themselves in a hole.
