The Jacksonville Jaguars are signing running back Chris Thompson to a one-year deal.

Fantasy Impact

Thompson has made his name in the NFL as a great pass catching option out of the backfield and looks to have the inside track on the gig in Jacksonville if he can stay healthy. Thompson has never been an elite fantasy option, but he was a top 30 back in 2017 and 2016 and has started last season on pace for 700+ receiving yards before getting injured in Week 6. I’ve long been a Chris Thompson fan and I might find myself taking a uber late round flier on him in more than a couple of drafts.
