2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

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.
