Chris Thompson (illness) is active for Week 15 against the Jaguars.

Unfortunately, Thompson has logged touch counts of 5, 6, and 6 over his last three games, failing to make any fantasy impact. He would be a poor flex option in fantasy semi-finals week. The Redskins' Week 15 inactives are CB Greg Stroman, OT Kyle Fuller, RB Samaje Perine, CB Josh Holsey, OL Tony Bergstrom, LB Ryan Anderson, TE Jordan Reed, and QB Colt McCoy.
Dec 16 - 11:44 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Chris Thompson (illness, questionable) is expected to play Week 15 against the Jaguars.

There never appeared to be much concern about his status. Thompson has touched the ball eight times in each of his two games since returning from injury, nothing 59 yards from scrimmage along the way. There are better options even in PPR formats.
Dec 16 - 12:05 AM

Chris Thompson (illness) is questionable for Week 15 against the Jaguars.

Thompson came down with an illness late in the week, but it shouldn't keep him from playing Sunday at Jacksonville. Currently in the midst of a six-game touchdown drought, the receiving back won't be a trust-worthy fantasy option in Week 15.
Dec 14 - 1:32 PM

Chris Thompson rushed three times for 23 yards and caught 3-of-5 targets for 15 yards in Washington's Week 14 loss to the Giants.

Even in a game the Skins played from behind, Thompson did not contribute worthwhile fantasy production. He lacks flex appeal in a dysfunctional offense.
Dec 9 - 5:29 PM

Chris Thompson rushed three times for three yards and caught 3-of-5 targets for 18 yards in the Redskins' blowout loss to the Eagles in Week 13.

Thompson played his first game since Week 8 and did nothing of note. He reclaimed pass-game work but made zero plays. It's been a season to forget for Thompson. He's off the fantasy radar until further notice.
Dec 3 - 11:36 PM

Chris Thompson (ribs) is active for Week 13 against the Eagles.

He should slide right into the role Kapri Bibbs was filling as Adrian Peterson's change-of-pace and pass-game specialist. With the Redskins as road underdogs, it wouldn't be a surprise if Thomspon was heavily involved.
Dec 3 - 6:55 PM

Chris Thompson (ribs) was removed from the Week 13 injury report.

This was fully expected after he practiced fully all week. Thompson will resume his pass-down role behind Adrian Peterson but should be avoided in his first game back.
Dec 1 - 4:30 PM

Redskins coach Jay Gruden believes Chris Thompson (ribs) will be "fine" to play Week 13 against the Eagles.

Thompson resumed practicing earlier this week and appears to be on track for Monday night's game in Philadelphia. "When you watch him run there is no issue," said Gruden. "I think he’ll be fine." Assuming he returns from a four-game absence, Thompson will function as a passing-down complement to early-down hammer Adrian Peterson.
Nov 29 - 2:50 PM

Chris Thompson (ribs) returned to practice Monday.

Thompson has been sidelined since Week 8. A practice this early in the week, especially with Washington not playing until Monday night, strongly suggests Thompson will return this week. Even so, he will not be a strong fantasy option against the Eagles with Adrian Peterson operating as the workhorse.
Nov 26 - 12:04 PM

Chris Thompson (ribs) is out for Week 12 against the Cowboys.

He hasn't played since Week 8. It's been a lost season for Thompson. Kapri Bibbs will continue to work as Adrian Peterson's lightly-used pace-changer.
Nov 21 - 2:06 PM

Chris Thompson (ribs) is out for Week 11 against the Texans.

Thompson didn't practice all week, putting his status for Thanksgiving against the Cowboys in jeopardy, too. With Samaje Perine (calf) ruled out, the Redskins will have only Adrian Peterson and Kapri Bibbs available in their backfield Sunday. It's likely the team promotes Byron Marshall from the practice squad just to have another body.
Nov 16 - 1:47 PM

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said there's a "good chance" Chris Thompson (ribs) doesn't play in Week 11.

This isn't a surprise after Thompson didn't practice Wednesday. The Redskins will continue to go with Kapri Bibbs as their pass-down complement to Adrian Peterson. Thompson remains week to week.
Nov 14 - 3:11 PM

Chris Thompson (ribs) has been ruled out for Week 10.

Thompson will have now missed 4-of-5 games. He doesn't seem particularly close to returning. Kapri Bibbs will try to change the pace/catch passes behind Adrian Peterson. "Try" because the Redskins' offensive line has bene destroyed by injury.
Nov 8 - 2:57 PM

Chris Thompson (ribs) remained sidelined on Thursday.

Thompson appears poised to miss yet another game this week. Kapri Bibbs is his fill-in.
