Texans' Chris Thompson: Leads receivers in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson caught all three of his targets for a team-high 54 yards in Sunday's 22-13 loss to the Colts.

Thompson was already moved up the depth chart for the game when DeAndre Hopkins (calf) was made inactive, then moved up another notch when Will Fuller was removed due to a knee injury. The undrafted free agent made more of an impact as a kick returner in 2017 and should be in the mix for the same job next season, if the Texans bring him back in 2018.

Texans' Chris Thompson: Zero offensive snaps Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson exclusively played special teams in Sunday's 26-16 loss to the 49ers.

Thompson was expected to have a role in the Texans offense in some form with receivers Bruce Ellington (hamstring) on injured reserve and Braxton Miller (concussion) inactive, but DeAndrew White saw exclusive snaps as the team's No. 3 receiver Sunday. Thompson has only two receptions for 30 yards on the season and hasn't seen consistent targets, even in his most involved offensive games.

Texans' Chris Thompson: Likely to fill No. 3 wideout role Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson is expected to serve as the Texans' No. 3 wide receiver in Sunday's game against the 49ers, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Thompson moved up a spot on the depth chart earlier this week when Bruce Ellington (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve, and at least for Week 14, he'll climb up another peg with Miller still in the concussion protocol. While the Texans dealt with numerous injuries at wideout in last week's loss to the Titans, Thompson saw a season-high 50 snaps, but that only translated to one catch for 11 yards on two targets. Thompson could see similarly generous playing time Sunday, but it's unlikely he'll rank as a primary read in the passing game for quarterback Tom Savage.

Texans' Chris Thompson: Puts in full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (neck) practiced fully Thursday.

With Thompson's neck injury no longer a concern heading into Sunday's matchup with the 49ers, the 27-year-old could be called upon to serve as the team's No. 3 wide receiver in the event Braxton Miller doesn't clear the concussion protocol by the weekend. If Miller does suit up, Thompson would still move up a rung to fourth on the wideout depth chart after Bruce Ellington (hamstring) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday.

Texans' Chris Thompson: Limited participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson was a limited participant at practice Wednesday with a neck injury.

Thompson, who played a season-high 50 offensive snaps in the Texans' Week 13 loss to the Titans, apparently tweaked his neck at some point during the contest. Given that it didn't keep him off the practice field, Thompson looks like a good bet to play Sunday against the 49ers, which should set him up for another hefty workload on offense. With neither Will Fuller (ribs) nor Braxton Miller (concussion) certain to be available for the contest, Thompson could end up getting a start alongside No. 1 receiver DeAndre Hopkins. That role won't necessarily yield Thompson an abundance of looks from quarterback Tom Savage, however, as the rookie was targeted just twice last week.
