With uncertainty about Chris Thompson’s status moving forward as he deals with a torn labrum in his shoulder, the Redskins on Friday added a backup policy in Pierre Thomas, a nine-year veteran who spent his first eight seasons with the New Orleans Saints.
Thomas would fill Thompson's pass-catching role if Thompson can't play. The Washington RBBC has been a mess all year, so there's no reason to run out and pick up Thomas.
WAS RB Pierre Thomas - Week 18, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 18 vs Green Bay
Pierre Thomas had eight touches last week, including seven rushes for 30 yards and just one catch. It was the opposite from Week 16 when Thomas had a 7-67-0 receiving line against the Eagles. Thomas should be back to being more involved in the passing game this week against the Packers in what isn't a great matchup. But if your playoff league is a deeper PPR one, Thomas could make an impact, however he likely only sees about 8-12 touches.
