Redskins coach Jay Gruden called RB Chris Thompson “one of the most exciting backs” while at Florida State. But he also wondered about his durability.
“He’s a guy who has to stay healthy and do his best to get on the field so we can see what he can do,” Gruden said. “Interesting guy. He’s very, very exciting when he gets the ball in his hands, but it’s hard to get the ball in his hands when he’s not out there.”
Roy Helu probably has the edge on Thompson to be the pass-catching back to Alfred Morris, but it's something to watch. In a more pass-heavy offense, whoever wins this job could have some deep, PPR league fantasy value.
