Chris Thompson Fantasy Football News 2019

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) is active for today’s game against the Panthers. It’ll be his 1st action since Week 6. Thompson should step back in as Washington’s primary pass-catching back but would be a desperation fantasy play today. RB Wendell Smallwood is a healthy scratch.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Panthers after a limited week of practice. Insider J.P. Finlay hears that Thompson is expected to play.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Washington is "not optimistic" that RB Chris Thompson will be able to play today against the Lions. Thompson is questionable with the toe injury that cost him the past 4 games and continued to limit his practice time this week. Schefter reports that the team will test him out in pregame warm-ups before a final decision. Thompson's continued absence would leave snaps and touches for Derrius Guice and Wendell Smallwood.

Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (toe) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Lions. He only got in a limited practice on Friday.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) put in a limited practice on Wednesday -- his 1st since going down back in Week 6. We'll see if he's able to return for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jets. RB Derrius Guice is set to return from his knee injury and will form a committee backfield alongside Adrian Peterson. It’s a situation to try to avoid vs. a surprisingly stout Jets run defense.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bills. Adrian Peterson will continue to serve as Washington’s workhorse and should get as much as he can handle with Dwayne Haskins under center.

Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Vikings. He said earlier this week that he's dealing with a minor high-ankle sprain and only got in a limited practice on Wednesday. Peterson was already in a bad spot as a big road underdog against a tough Vikings defense. The ankle only adds more downside.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) didn’t practice all week and is out for Sunday’s game against the 49ers. Reportedly dealing with turf toe, Thompson might be looking at a multi-game absence. Wendell Smallwood figures to slide in as Washington’s #2 RB but isn’t a fantasy option.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson has been diagnosed with turf toe, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rapoport describes the injury as "minor" -- but we heard the same about Packers WR Davante Adams, who's already missed 2 weeks. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on Thompson in Week 7 fantasy lineups. His absence will leave Wendell Smallwood as the #2 RB behind Adrian Peterson.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson suffered a foot injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game in Miami and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Redskins RB Derrius Guice indeed underwent surgery on Thursday and is out "indefinitely," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We should get a more concrete timetable for Guice's return over the next few days. He's worth stashing if you have an IR spot or a deep bench. But he's also cuttable if you're desperate for immediate help. Adrian Peterson takes over as Washington's lead back, with Chris Thompson continuing to dominate passing-down work.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) isn't listed on the final injury report after putting in a full week of practice. He'll return for Monday night's game against the Eagles.

Washington HC Jay Gruden said Friday he's "very optimistic" RB Chris Thompson will play Monday night against the Eagles, according to ESPN's John Keim. The official game-status report will come out later this afternoon, but we'd expect something better than questionable for Thompson after he put in full practices Thursday and Friday. Thompson missed the past 4 games and 6 of the past 7 with rib injuries. He'll be a fringe option against a Philly D likely to miss MLB Jordan Hicks for the 2nd straight game.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs) is out for Sunday’s game against the Texans. Kapri Bibbs will continue to serve as the change-of-pace back but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bucs. He still has no timetable for return.
