RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for Chris Thompson.

2017

Thompson stayed healthy in 2016 and the result was, naturally, his best NFL season to date. While his sure hands and strong routes make him an effective pass-catching weapon out of the backfield and allowed him to set career highs in receptions, targets and receiving yards, Thompson proved for the second straight year that his small stature doesn't prevent him from making an impact on the ground as well. He had five runs of 15 yards or more on just 68 carries, the eighth best rate in the league, and he scored his first three rushing touchdowns in the NFL. The elevation of QB coach Matt Cavanaugh to offensive coordinator should keep the focus on the passing game in Washington, and while Robert Kelley and rookie Samaje Perine will compete for early down snaps, Thompson should have third-down work mostly to himself.

2016

While its difficult to make sharp conclusions with someone who plays limited snaps, Thompson's per-play averages from last year do get your attention, and he showed the ability to play in a variety of packages. Washington's RB depth chart is fairly thin as we go to press, which means Thompson by default could have a notable role here. That said, Washington's current front office didn't draft Thompson; he's also coming off January shoulder surgery; and the Redskins seem to be linked to every potential free-agent running back. Thompson's fantasy situation should be much clearer by the end of August; he could be the team's No. 2 back at that time, or perhaps a free agent looking for work. He makes the cut in our profile section because he did put some explosive plays on the field last year.

2015

The third-year back has failed to see the field much in his first two professional seasons, attempting three rushes for 12 yards and catching six balls for 27 yards and a touchdown after being promoted from the practice squad in Week 15. This might be his last opportunity on the Redskins. As a smaller back with a lot of speed, he enters 2015 with an uncertain role. Thompson returned kicks in college and also returned some for the Redskins in 2013, but that role was overtaken by Andre Roberts last season. He’ll likely compete with Silas Redd and 3rd round pick Matt Jones for backup duties to Alfred Morris in 2015.

2014

He has game breaking speed but failed to landed a job in the Washington backfield.

2013

Thompson will look to sneak onto the roster for the Redskins in 2013 with a crowd at the position.
