From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Thompson comes with the risk of being a role player, but he has been outstanding on limited touches, including a long score this week. He'll have RB2 level quality against the Raiders this week in what could be a shootout.
General News (Tue Sep 19): is expected to see more work going forward, but head coach Jay Gruden warned reporters the team doesn't "want to go crazy with him" given his 5-8, 190-pound frame.

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.
Latest NewsRedskins | Chris Thompson likely to see expanded role (Tue Sep 19, 12:14 PM) - Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson is expected to see more work going forward, but head coach Jay Gruden warned reporters the team doesn't 'want to go crazy with him' given his 5-8, 190-pound frame. Our View: That's what we expected, and not just because Rob Kelley (ribs) is a little banged up. Thompson can make a house call anytime he touches the ball and from anywhere on the field. It only makes sense to maximize his touches. Thompson has RB2 or flex value in PPR leagues with this expanded pass-catching role.
