Darwin Thompson goes off for 110 yards and two scores in season finale

Chiefs RB Darwin Thompson scored a rushing and receiving touchdown while rushing for 45 yards on 14 carries and reeling in seven receptions for 65 receiving yards in the Chiefs' 38-21 loss to the Chargers in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Thompson did it all with Le'Veon Bell, Darrel Williams, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire out of commission. He finished Week 17 as one of the top performers in DFS on Sunday. This was clearly a breakout game for the second-year pro as backup QB Chad Henne looked his way often. Thompson can likely be ignored in DFS once the playoffs start, but if there is an injury to Bell or Williams, he'll likely get a crack at some playing time if CEH isn't ready to return.

Darwin Thompson expected to get ‘bulk of the carries’ Week 17 vs. Chargers

Chiefs RB Darwin Thompson is expected to get the “bulk of the carries” in Week 17 vs. the Chargers with the Chiefs likely giving small workloads to both Le’Veon Bell and Darrel Williams.

Fantasy Impact

With Clyde Edwards-Helaire already ruled out, and Bell expected to be active but potentially not play very much, the report suggests Thompson could be in line to receive the majority of the work out of the backfield on Sunday. Williams is still there, but he could also be used sparingly as the Chiefs look to stay healthy heading into the postseason. Thompson makes for an intriguing option at just $4,400 on DraftKings.

Darwin Thompson gets 17 yards in limited action on Monday night

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darwin Thompson carried the ball three times for 17 yards in a win over the Buffalo Bills on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact

Thompson received three carries in the second half in a game script that offered opportunities to all of the Chiefs running backs. He scampered for a hard-earned 11-yard first down, but that was his main contribution to the victory. Thompson will move further down the depth chart and will likely be inactive once Le'Veon Bell is acquainted with the offense and can be ignored for fantasy purposes unless there are injuries to Edwards-Helaire, Le'Veon Bell, or Darrel Williams.

Darwin Thompson fumbles versus Baltimore

Darwin Thompson rushed twice for 11 yards and lost one fumble in the Chiefs' 34-20 win over the Ravens Monday night. He did not record a catch on two targets.

Fantasy Impact

Thompson's lost fumble coupled with the return of Darrel Williams to the lineup is likely to spell the end of his opportunity to be Clyde Edwards-Helaire's backup.

Darwin Thompson sees four touches in Kansas City win

Darwin Thompson rushed four times for 21 yards and did not bring his only target in the Chiefs' 23-20 overtime win over the Chargers Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Thompson saw a few looks with Darrel Williams (ankle) exiting Sunday's game. His value is low outside of an extended absence ahead of him on Kansas City's depth chart.
