Draft note
by John Paulsen
The Jaguars signed Thompson after hiring Jay Gruden to be their new offensive coordinator. Since 2016, Thompson has averaged 3.6 catches per game and has averaged 52 total yards per game. He’s a threat to steal passing down work from incumbent Leonard Fournette. Thompson will likely be an eight- to 12-point player in full PPR formats, when healthy.

JAX RB Chris Thompson - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
When the Jaguars pursued Chris Thompson in free agency, he did not need much convincing about their offense being a good fit for his skillset. He already knew it was from the way Jaguars' new OC Jay Gruden utilized him when they were paired together with the Redskins. "He is one of the biggest reasons I was able to have the success that I had in Washington and to be able to stick around there," Thompson said. "Me coming here to Jacksonville, being familiar with his offense, it is good for me." A fifth-round pick by the Redskins in 2013 out of Florida State, Thompson emerged as a dual-threat under Gruden. The speedy back totaled 1,194 yards rushing and caught 212 passes for 1,772 yards and 10 touchdowns in seven seasons with Washington.

Fantasy Downside
Thompson has missed 17 games in the past three seasons, but if he can stay on the field, he could serve as a reasonable bye-week option.

2020 Bottom Line
In Jacksonville, Thompson expects to complement Leonard Fournette, featured as the team's third-down option and as a receiving threat out of the backfield.
