|A gruesome broken right fibula Week 12 prematurely ended Thompson's 2017 season, cutting short an impressive career year for the former Florida State Seminole. Despite missing six games, Thompson set career marks for receiving yards and touchdowns (510, 4), while averaging an impressive 11.6 fantasy points per game based on FF Today Default Scoring. Not only was Thompson skilled as the third/passing down back for Jay Gruden, he also earned more first and second down touches in the Redskin offense due to the injuries and ineffective running by Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine.
With the Redskins using their second-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft to select Derrius Guice, the path for touches from Thompson will likely be limited to passing and third down work. Guice is a talented runner, but he has a way to go with regards to pass protection and catching the ball out of the backfield.
Despite having a set role with limited upside rushing the ball and questions surrounding his ability to return to form after the broken leg, Thompson will have flex value in PPR leagues with the upside of more work should Guice suffer rookie struggles.
| Jamison Crowder listed as questionable|
Did more work on Friday

|Running back Chris Thompson (rib)and left tackle Trent Williams (thumb) have been ruled out for Sunday. Those listed as questionable: WR Jamison Crowder, CB Quinton Dunbar and right tackle Morgan Moses. Crowder did more work today; Moses took some team reps. (John Keim on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Redskins are thin at wide receiver with Paul Richardson (shoulder) being placed on IR. Josh Doctson and Marice Harris worked as the top receiving options last week. Crowder would kill Harris' fantasy if he's able to go in Week 10 against the Bucs.
| Chris Thompson a no-go for Week 10|
Fourth absence in the last five games

|Redskins RB Chris Thompson has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay. This isn't a surprise given his rib issues and has missed three of the last four games. Kapri Bibbs will continue in the third down role. (ESPN - John Keim)|
FFToday's Take: The change-of-pace/passing-down back role in Washington has taken on added importance recently, as the Redskins' offensive line has been decimated by injury. While Adrian Peterson has shown the ability to catch the ball this season, Thompson's continued absence means Kapri Bibbs should be in line for at least five to eight touches and potentially more against the high-scoring Buccaneers. Given the likely game script, Bibbs could be a high-end flex option this week.
