From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 25): Thompson's acceleration and sports car handling is leaving defenders in his wake. It seems unsustainable that he can be a strong RB1 with fewer than ten touches a game, but we still wouldn't bench him heading into Week 4 against the Chiefs.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs LAR (3 / 77 / 2 rush, 7 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)

Chris Thompson was the biggest playmaker on offense for Washington after Rob went down. He only had three carries but his sixty-one yard touchdown run gave the offense a much needed spark. The run came on a draw play in which he displayed excellent vision and patience. When he hit the second level he was practically untouched headed to the end zone. Chris added three receptions as well, but only managed twenty-nine yards. His versatility was extremely valuable in helping Washington move the ball against the Rams. He also had a seven yard touchdown run and accounted for two of the three touchdowns Washington had in this game.

2017 Week 1 vs PHI (3 / 4 / 0 rush, 5 / 4 / 52 / 1 rec)

Chris Thompson didn't have much of a presence in the run game, but he was a major factor in the passing game. He totaled four receptions and scored the only passing touchdown of the game. Chris' elusiveness helped turn a dump off pass into a twenty-nine-yard touchdown. Chris has great ability to make defenders miss after the catch and Kirk was comfortable finding him under pressure.

Our View: Thompson should've been added via the waiver wire if he wasn't drafted in your league. With Rob Kelley (ribs) a bit banged up, we could see the team turn to Thompson a bit more. He's their receiving back, and he's clearly got the ability to make a house call anytime he touches the rock...and from anywhere on the field. Thompson is a RB3/flex play against the Raiders in Week 3.
