Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said that running back Chris Thompson (back) will be put on Injured Reserve. It means that Thompson will have to miss at least the next three games after suffering a back injury in the Week 10 loss to the Packers. Rookie James Robinson remains the featured back in this offense, but there will now be opportunity for either Devine Ozigbo or Dare Ogunbowale to handle third-down pass-catching duties with Thompson sidelined. Through eight games this year, Thompson only had seven carries for 20 yards and 20 receptions for 146 yards and one touchdown. He was merely an RB3/4 in deep PPR leagues. Take a wait-and-see approach in those same leagues with Ozigbo and Ogunbowale for the time being.
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Thompson (back) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 16.
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Thompson (back) suffered a back injury during the Week 10 game and is considered questionable to return. He was also evaluated for a concussion but was cleared by the doctors.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Thompson exited Sunday's game against the Packers to be evaluated for a concussion. He was cleared to return, but is apparently still questionable to come back due to a back injury. Injuries have been the story of Thompson's career. If he doesn't return, expect to see more of James Robinson, who has already been seeing almost-full workloads each week.
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Thompson was activated off the Reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Oct. 30.
The Jacksonville Jaguars activated running back Chris Thompson from the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday. Thompson will be ready to return in Week 9 against the Texans following the team's bye this week. The 30-year-old has been an afterthought in Jacksonville's backfield behind James Robinson, rushing the ball just six times for 17 yards. However, he's contributed 16 receptions on 19 targets for 111 yards and a touchdown in six games, so he's useful as bench depth for fantasy managers in deeper PPR formats. If Robinson were to go down with an injury and miss time, Thompson would have RB2 upside in point-per-reception leagues.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Thompson was placed on the COVID-19 list prior to the team's Week 7 game against the Los Angeles Chargers. In a corresponding move, Devine Ozigbo (hamstring) was activated from Injured Reserve prior to Sunday's game and will serve as the team's No. 2 back behind James Robinson in Week 7. Thompson has failed to make much of an impact so far this year and can be dropped in all fantasy leagues.
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Thompson was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Oct. 24.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Thompson has caught 16 of his 19 targets for 111 yards and a touchdown on the year. He's been regularly seeing about five targets per game this year, but he isn't doing a ton with them, averaging 6.9 yards per reception. He's also barely getting any work in the running game with just six carries for 17 yards on the year. James Robinson is getting all the work he can handle right now as the team's No. 1 back and until something changes, Thompson isn't worth considering as a starting option in any fantasy leagues.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Thompson continued to see his role expand on Thursday night, catching five passes for 35 yards and adding three rushing yards on two carries. Thompson isn't the same receiving threat that he was in Washington, but he's becoming a larger part of things for the Jaguars. That doesn't mean you need to rush out and put him in your fantasy lineups moving forward, but it's worth keeping an eye on what Thompson does in Week 4 against the Bengals.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Thompson scored his first touchdown of the 2020 season on Sunday, finishing with three catches for 20 yards and a score. He also added two rushes for seven yards. Of course, Thompson only getting five touches in this loss to the Titans is worrisome, especially with a game script that should have led to Thompson getting solid work as the passing down back. He has upside, but his role is too inconsistent right now to make him a worthy fantasy option on a weekly basis.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Thompson had just two touches in a Week 1 win over the Indianapolis Colts. He didn't receive a single carry but caught both of his targets for six yards. Thompson played 12 snaps. Not a great showing for those who thought Thompson in a Jay Gruden offense would look like he did in Washington. It's too early to drop Thompson, but it's not too early to start thinking about dropping him and to move him to your fantasy bench in Week 2 to be safe.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Thompson is the only veteran running back on the current Jaguars roster. He should see plenty of targets out of the backfield, just as he did when he was with Washington, and could wind up with more rushing attempts than expected with two untested players in front of him. Thompson is an intriguing flex option in full PPR leagues against the Colts in Week 1 because we've seen him have success as a receiving threat before. While there's risk because of the uncertainty of his role, deep league managers might be wise to take the chance.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Thompson could be in line for an expanded role after the team surprisingly released starting running back Leonard Fournette on Monday morning. Thompson was reportedly already seeing plenty of work in the team's offense during training camp, including in the red zone. He probably won't see many more carries as a strict pass-catching RB but his role in the red zone could be robust in 2020. Thompson is currently the most-proven running back on the team as they have Ryquell Armstead, Devine Ogizbo, and James Robinson currently behind him on the depth chart. Those three backs have a combined 44 career carries among them. Expect Thompson's 14th-round ADP to rise in the coming days.
Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake picked up at least 15 yards on screen passes six times in 2019 - tied with the Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Thompson for the second-most by any NFL running back last season.
