  Redskins | Chris Thompson close to 100 percent    Thu May 30, 09:49 PM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ankle) said he has occasional soreness in his leg but feels better than he has in a long time.

Footballguys view: Thompson can be a dangerous weapon as a runner or receiver out of the backfield when healthy. He hasn't played a full 16-game season since 2016 and that makes Fantasy GMs nervous about his availability. There's at least 'what the heck' flex appeal when Thompson is on the field, and he'll serve as a change-of-pace back behind Adrian Peterson and/or Derrius Guice this season.

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) has looked good running this week and is expected to play, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Thompson has missed six games this year due to rib injuries.

Footballguys view: Thompson is the team's change-of-pace back when healthy but we haven't seen him in action since Week 8. Washington plays on Monday night in Week 13 against the Eagles and we'd only recommend Thompson as a 'what the heck' flex if he's able to return this week.

Footballguys view: Peterson's rest day is not a big deal. He should be good to go for Week 9 and has RB2 upside for Fantasy GMs. Thompson's rib injury all comes down to pain tolerance. Check on his practice status later in the week.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson hurts rib    Mon Oct 29, 03:54 PM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) injured a rib on the other side of his rib cage from where he was already hurt.

Footballguys view: Thompson just can't shake the injury bug. Rib injuries always come down to pain tolerance. Whether or not he plays depends on how well he can handle the pain. If Thompson has to miss time, Washington could once again turn to Kapri Bibbs as the change-of-pace back behind Adrian Peterson.

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed for 13 yards on three carries against the New York Giants in Week 8. He also caught two passes for nine yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Thompson was a non-factor because Washington controlled this game. He is a boom/bust PPR RB2 who might be better as a flex at this point, but the matchup couldn't be better for him next week with Atlanta up.

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs, knee) was limited in practice for a third straight day Friday, Oct. 19 and he is considered questionable for Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Footballguys view: Thompson didn't play last week despite some practice participation, so this feels like a game-time decision. He could be in line for a huge target load if he's active with Washington down to their #3-5 wide receivers this week.
