Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 17 vs DAL (3 / 11 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec)

Chris Thompson had four combined touches in this game. It has been tough for Chris to establish himself in the offense this year as they havenÕt been as pass heavy as yearÕs prior. He has also dealt with more injuries. He didnÕt have much of an impact in this game even with the negative game script and the need to pass more.

2019 Week 16 vs NYG (8 / 34 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 18 / 0 rec)

Chris Thompson had a combined twelve touches but wasnÕt able to make much of an impact. He calling card is in the passing game, but his four targets resulted in four catches for less than twenty yards. He did receive a goal line carry but wasnÕt able to convert the touchdown.

2019 Week 15 vs PHI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 26 / 0 rec)

Chris Thompson didn't have a carry in this game but managed to record two catches. He wasn't as involved this week as it seems the coaching staff wanted to establish the run. Chris' opportunities are usually increased when Washington is facing a deficit. In this case, as the third down passing back his chances to contribute were limited.

2019 Week 14 vs GB (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 8 / 7 / 43 / 0 rec)

Chris Thompson didn't receive a carry in this game, but he did tally seven receptions.  He led the team in receptions as Dwayne relied on him in the short passing game.  Chris is the third down back for Washington and became even more important once Derrius went down.  Adrian isn't a great receiver out of the backfield so Chris will be heavily integrated moving forward.     

2019 Week 13 vs CAR (3 / 14 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)

Chris Thompson played a rotational role against Carolina, sharing time with Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice. His best play of the game came on a deep out in the two-minute drill at the end of the first half. Set up alongside Dwayne Haskins in the backfield, Thompson ghosted past the coverage and made a tremendous catch. As a runner he was rarely involved and couldn't break the line like his backfield teammates.

2019 Week 6 vs MIA (3 / 12 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec)

Chris Thompson went down late in the second half with a foot injury but wasn't really involved prior to leaving.  Much like Adrian's production is tied to game script, this game did not call for Chris' abilities.  Washington wanted to establish a run game which didn't include Chris considering he is the passing down back.  If Washington isn't playing catch up, Chris' imprint on the offense will be limited.

2019 Week 5 vs NE (4 / 21 / 0 rush, 7 / 5 / 17 / 0 rec)

Chris Thompson had a total of nine touches in this game with four of them coming on the ground. He was held in check as his touches accumulated a total of forty yards. As drives stalled and they were behind on downs, the Patriots keyed on him and didn't allow for ay conversions. It was difficult to find success behind an O-line that was being beat at the point of attack all game as well.

2019 Week 4 vs NYG (4 / 4 / 0 rush, 5 / 4 / 56 / 0 rec)

Chris Thompson was the most productive player on offense as he had a combined eight touches totaling sixty yards. His fifty-six receiving yards paced all receivers as well. The offense only managed three points for the entire game and Chris' contributions were minimized by bad quarterback play.

2019 Week 3 vs CHI (7 / 29 / 0 rush, 5 / 4 / 79 / 0 rec)

Chris Thompson had his most productive game of the year, as he totaled eleven touches for over a hundred yards. He was second on the team in receiving yardage as he picked up a few chunk plays out of the backfield. His seven carries, including two goal-line were higher than usual. That can be partly attributed to his higher on-field percentage while the team was in catch-up mode. He is a better fit for the Washington offense but as a smaller back, Washington must be careful with how many touches he receives.

2019 Week 2 vs DAL (2 / 3 / 0 rush, 8 / 5 / 48 / 0 rec)

Chris Thompson tied for the most receptions in this game with five. The receptions didn't come with much yardage, but he was very involved in this game as Washington played from behind. Chris also got two carries but only resulted in three yards. He had eight targets on the day and Chris' big play ability will pay off as long as he stays involved.

2019 Week 1 vs PHI (3 / 10 / 0 rush, 10 / 7 / 68 / 0 rec)

Chris Thompson was busy in this game as he tallied seven receptions. His seven receptions lead the team as well. As it became clear Washington wasn't going to be able to establish the run, Chris' role grew in this game. He added three carries, but they only totaled ten yards. None of Chris' work in this game was game changing or made much impact as a few catches came in garbage time. Chris will have better days as it is clear he will be the definitive backup to Derrius. His passing game role will continue to be a vital piece to the Washington offense.
