When Pierre Thomas signed with the Washington Redskins a little more than two weeks ago, he talked about the energy he felt in the locker room.

The nine-year veteran running back, who spent eight seasons with the New Orleans Saints and won a Super Bowl title, said he saw a team on the cusp of success with a laser-narrowed focus. With a little hope, Thomas thought, he’d be able to impart some leadership on this team to help them achieve their goal of making the playoffs, and in the process, prove he could still play.

Both of those things happened on Saturday night as the Redskins beat the Eagles, 38-24, to clinch the NFC East title at Lincoln Financial Field. Thomas caught seven catches for 67 yards and rushed for 22 yards on four carries.

Fantasy Impact: 

That puts him on the fantasy radar at least in PPR leagues as Chris Thompson is battling injuries. The Redskins aren't sure if they will rest their starters in Week 17 but given Thomas' lack of playing time in the system, he could still get some work.
