2016 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-in

Last updated on Aug-17-2016 by Shawn Childs


After having minimal playing time in his first two years in the NFL (nine touches for 39 yards and a TD), Thompson worked his way into the RB rotation with the Redskins. He finished with 70 touches for 516 with two TDs and 35 catches. Chris lacks size (5'8" and 193 lbs.) so he may have injury risk. He missed three games in 2015 due to a torn labrum in his left shoulder that required surgery in January and a back issue. Most of his value will come on passing downs where he will see some action in the run game as well. Thompson had six catches or more in four of his 13 games in 2015. This year he'll see the weaker half of the RB split. I expect between 100 and 150 touches with half of his opportunity coming in the passing game.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
13.03 Matt Brandon - With Alfred Morris gone, Thompson should see a few extra touches in 2016 now that the relatively unproven Matt Jones is starting.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
18.07 Mastersball - Perry Van Hook - Thompson is a great pass catcher out of the backfield and should be right behind Matt Jones on the Washington depth chart. He has the ability to play more than that should Jones falter again this year.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
16.01 Dynasty Trade Calculator - J.P. Hurley - Big fan of Thompson becoming 2016's Danny Woodhead. Take a stab on this guy late in your draft, especially if it's a flex league.
