Thompson isn't going to add much to a best ball roster's weekly ceiling, but he could save the bacon of teams that go lean and mean at running back. His steady receiving back role provides a solid floor for bye weeks and injuries and the very late round price is right for cheap points at running back.

Summary

Chris Thompson has carved out a respectable role as a part-time contributor, primarily on passing downs. The 5'7", 192-pound tailback set career highs in 2016 with 68 rushes for 356 yards and three rushing touchdowns to go along with 49 receptions for 349 yards and two receiving touchdowns. Thompson should maintain his role as the 3rd-down receiver this season even if rookie Samaje Perine overtakes Robert Kelley on 1st and 2nd down. Thompson has a low ceiling, making him a less-than-ideal late-round fantasy flier since both Kelley and Perine are better suited to handle the larger workload. (July 15)
