  Cardinals | Screen plays worked out well for Kenyan Drake    Tue Jun 23, 10:10 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake picked up at least 15 yards on screen passes six times in 2019 - tied with the Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Thompson for the second-most by any NFL running back last season.

Footballguys view: Drake showed up in Arizona and made big plays from day one. What a perfect fit he was and is for the Kliff Kingsbury offense. The unit is one of the most high-powered offenses in the league, meaning that Drake should once again be able to take advantage of screens in 2020.

  Jaguars | Chris Thompson officially joins Jaguars    Wed May 13, 05:32 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Chris Thompson (Redskins) officially signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars Wednesday, May 13. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Thompson is going to keep doing what he does best -- catching passes out of the backfield. Leonard Fournette is still in Jacksonville and he's still the lead back for the team. Thompson will compete with Ryquell Armstead to be the backup to Fournette. If healthy, Thompson could catch around 30 passes in a reserve role.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville adding Chris Thompson    Fri May 1, 06:19 PM

Free-agent RB Chris Thompson (Redskins) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars Friday, May 1, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Thompson is reunited with Jags OC Jay Gruden who was his coach in Washington. He's a pass-catching threat who should take third-down duties away from Leonard Fournette. Thompson has some flex appeal in PPR leagues due to his skill set and assumed role with the Jaguars.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson dealing with turf toe    Tue Oct 15, 03:48 PM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) was diagnosed with a mild case of turf toe and his availability for Week 7 is 'in some doubt,' according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: Turf toe is a painful injury that can have long-lasting effects if not given proper time to heal. We could see Thompson miss some games with this injury, no matter how 'minor' they say it is. Wendell Smallwood could get more time as a change-of-pace back if Thompson has to miss time.

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (foot) underwent an MRI on his injured foot Monday, Oct. 14. The team is reportedly still awaiting the results.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Thompson has to miss time with this injury. He went down late in the second half against the Dolphins. Thompson has flex appeal in PPR leagues with his current role as Washington's change-of-pace back.
