Summary

Chris Thompson enters his sixth season in a familiar role; he'll be the third-down receiving back. Thompson has never been a factor as a ball-carrier, although he was on pace for a career year last season before breaking his fibula, ending his season in November. Thompson's career yards-per-carry average of 5.2 is misleading because most of his carries come on obvious passing downs. As limited as he is taking handoffs, his value as a receiver is massive. Thompson has 129 career receptions for 1,126 yards and nine touchdowns and can be counted on for 50+ receptions this year, if healthy. Thompson's fantasy value is limited in standard leagues, but he should hold RB3/flex value points-per-reception formats this season. (May 20)

Redskins | Chris Thompson in line for big role? (Thu May 17, 10:44 PM) - Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice will likely be the starter according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com, but Rosenthal said it 'wouldn't be a surprise' if RB Chris Thompson ended up playing more snaps this year.

Our View: Thompson catches the ball well, and is a much better pass protector. So with the, not-terribly-mobile-but-not-a-statue Alex Smith under center, Washington may decide Thompson is the better bet to protect their quarterback. Guice should get plenty of carries, but Thompson may be a sneaky player to target in this offense.
