Chris Thompson Fantasy Football News 2018

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. Thompson has averaged 5.2 carries and 6.8 targets across 5 appearances this season. He's a consideration in PPR leagues but comes with plenty of risk in his 1st action since October.

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. Kapri Bibbs will continue to operate as Washington's change-of-pace back but isn't much of a fantasy option. He's totaled 7 carries and 8 targets in the past 3 games without Thompson.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) is out for Sunday's game against the Falcons. It's a missed opportunity vs. the league's worst defense in RB coverage. RB Kapri Bibbs will step in as Washington's #2 RB and is a deep-league PPR option in this matchup. He posted a 4-43-1 line on 5 targets back in Week 7.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. His rib injury is reportedly an issue of pain tolerance, so it's possible he plays against the Falcons this weekend without practicing. But even then, he'd be a risky fantasy starter.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson suffered another rib injury in Sunday's win over the Giants, according to ESPN's John Keim. This one is to the opposite side that he hurt earlier this season. "Now about pain tolerance," Keim adds. We'll keep an eye on Thompson this week. He has an intriguing matchup on Sunday vs. a Falcons team that bleeds receptions to RBs.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (knee, ribs) is active for today’s game against the Giants. He put in a full practice on Friday, so we’re expecting him to be ready for his usual role in this one.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs, knee) is expected to play against the Giants today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Thompson missed the last 2 games but got in a full practice on Friday. There's a bit more risk here than usual, but he's fine to get into PPR lineups.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (knee, ribs) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Giants. He put in a full practice on Friday, so he should be able to give it a go. Thompson comes with elevated risk with the knee and rib issues but packs plenty of PPR upside.

Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle, shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Cowboys. He played through these injuries last week, carrying 17 times. Expect a similar workload today. Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib, knee), meanwhile, is inactive. That leaves Kapri Bibbs as Washington’s #2 RB.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs, knee) is not expected to play against the Cowboys today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. With Thompson sidelined last week, RB Adrian Peterson carried 17 times and saw 1 target. Expect similar usage today -- with perhaps more passing-game work if his shoulder is closer to 100%.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib, knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. That one doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET, so we'll look for an update on Thompson on Sunday morning. He'll be a risk/reward RB3 in PPR leagues if active.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs, knee) was limited in practice on Wednesday. He was limited all last week before missing the Panthers game, so this doesn't tell us much. We'll get another update on Thompson tomorrow.

As expected, Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Panthers and Chris Thompson (ribs) is inactive. Kapri Bibbs will step in as Washington’s #2 RB, but Peterson should handle as many touches as he can handle.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Washington RB Chris Thompson is expected to miss today's game against the Panthers. He's officially questionable because of rib and knee injuries. Washington also reportedly expects to be without WR Jamison Crowder (ankle). Factor in injuries for Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson, and the target ceiling for TE Jordan Reed -- in a positive matchup for TE scoring -- only rises higher. Adrian Peterson could see a bit more backfield receiving work with Thompson out. And Kapri Bibbs figures to be in the picture as well.
