Chris Thompson (RB, WAS) – 11% Owned
I know this man seems to make this list every week, but what can I say?
Finding a running back with PPR value owned in less than 15% of leagues is a needle-in-the-haystack sort of search. But here’s the thing: Chris Thompson has been seeing his involvement in the offense increase recently, to the point that he lead the backfield in touches and carries Week 7 with lead back Matt Jones fumbling yet again. He finished the game rushing for 73 yards on 12 carries while catching seven balls for 40 yards. Even if the Redskins continue to lead with Jones, it is clear Thompson has an important part to play on this team and it is not limited to catching back.
They’ll face a Bengals’ team Week 8 that is averaging seven targets per game to running backs over the past five weeks.
