Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 5 vs NO (8 / 17 / 0 rush, 8 / 6 / 45 / 0 rec)
Chris Thompson was busy against the Saints as Washington had to go pass heavy. He had a total of fourteen touches and became a steady contributor as Adrian Peterson went down with an injury. Chris didn't do anything on the ground, but he did catch 6 receptions for forty-five yards through the air. As Washington faced such a large deficit it allowed Chris to get extra work on a night that was expected to be high scoring.
2018 Week 3 vs GB (6 / 17 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec)
Chris Thompson had seven total touches for less than twenty yards. As the offense was in total control throughout this game it didn't have a need for his services. Chris did get a carry in the redzone but he was unable to convert. That would have made his stat line look differently. The offense played conservative in the second half as they built a sizable lead which lead to less passing game opportunities for Chris. He will continue to dominate the third down looks and remain heavily involved in the passing game.
2018 Week 2 vs IND (4 / 1 / 0 rush, 14 / 13 / 92 / 0 rec)
Chris Thompson found no room to run as he only totaled one rushing yard. However, he led Washington in receptions and receiving yardage. His thirteen receptions were a career high. As the line struggled to protect Chris often became a safety valve for dumpoff passes out of the backfield. Chris is a major part of the Washington offense and today he was extremely busy. Chris' run after the catch yards were minimized as well as the Colts did a great job of corralling him after the catch.
2018 Week 1 vs ARI (5 / 65 / 0 rush, 7 / 6 / 63 / 1 rec)
Chris Thompson picked up right where he left off from last season. Showing no signs of rust coming off injury, Chris had a combined eleven touches that went for over one hundred and twenty yards. He also chipped in a touchdown for this game as he used his route running ability to take advantage of a linebacker. The play design looked to be an option route coming out of the backfield. It was an easy read for Alex as Chris took the short dump off about ten yards for the score. Chris is a major component to the Washington offense and his double-digit touches along with the efficient production shows he is ready to contribute immediately.
