Redskins Defense Bulldozed By Packers Rushing Attack

The Washington Redskins Defense played well enough to hold the Packers to 20 points on Sunday, but the bigger story is that they straight-up could not stop Aaron Jones on the ground. Jones rushed for 134 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries, and added six receptions for 58 yards. Jones' big day on the... Read More

Kelvin Harmon Held In Check By Packers

Washington Redskins wide receiver Kelvin Harmon couldn't get anything going in a road loss to the Packers on Sunday. After three straight games of emerging as a preferred option for Dwayne Haskins, Harmon caught just one of four targets at Lambeau. He took the lone reception for 30 yards, but this game has to be...

Steven Sims Jr. Sees Season-High Seven Targets

Washington Redskins wide receiver Steven Sims Jr. hadn't been targeted more than four times in any game this season, nor had he posted more than 29 receiving yards. Sunday marked the end of both trends, as he caught four of seven targets for 40 yards. That's regrettably the extent of the positive that can be... Read More

Terry McLaurin Catches Late Touchdown Against Packers

Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin rejoined the ranks of the fantasy-relevant on Sunday, catching four passes for 57 yards and a touchdown in a loss to the Packers. It's worth mentioning that the touchdown itself--a 13-yard catch with just over a minute to go in the game--salvaged what otherwise would've been a low-end fantasy... Read More

Chris Thompson Turns In Decent PPR Day

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson hauled in seven of a team-high eight targets on Sunday against the Packers. He only produced 43 yards, but the sudden uptick in opportunity is a welcome change of pace for the pass-catching back. It's worth noting that Thompson's increased role coincides with an injury that knocked Derrius Guice... Read More

Adrian Peterson Rumbles As Primary Back In Week 14

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson was forced back into a featured role on Sunday when Derrius Guice suffered a knee injury. Peterson's output on 20 carries wasn't especially efficient, but 76 yards and a touchdown were welcome sights to any fantasy owner who rolled him out as a hopeful flex option. The longtime workhorse... Read More

Dwayne Haskins Finally Throws A Touchdown Pass

Washington Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins hadn't thrown a touchdown in either of his team's last two games, but he tossed one on Sunday at Lambeau Field. Haskins completed 16 of 27 passes for 170 yards in a loss to the Packers, complete with his eighth turnover of the season. The rookie's lone touchdown was a... Read More

Redskins Defense Not Worth Trusting At Lambeau

The Washington Redskins Defense has performed well both in real life and in fantasy football the last two weeks, greatly contributing to the fact that their team has won its last two games. With fantasy championships at stake in Week 14, now is not the time to buy into this trend so much that you... Read More

Kelvin Harmon Not In Line For Success Against Packers

Washington Redskins wide receiver Kelvin Harmon can hang his hat on an increased role in an otherwise terrible pass offense over the last few weeks, but that's where the positives begin and end regarding his Week 14 outlook. The Packers are in a three-way tie for the second-fewest receptions allowed to wide receivers on the... Read More

Terry McLaurin With Equal Parts Risk And Upside

Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin's outlook has been and will continue to be hurt by having Dwayne Haskins as his quarterback, but there is big-play potential in his spectrum of outcomes for Week 14 if this pass offense can display some level of competence. The Packers are allowing nearly 16.5 yards per catch to... Read More

Chris Thompson Not A Safe Week 14 Play

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson was a non-factor in his return from injury last week, and there is little evidence to suggest he'll see much of an uptick in Week 14 against the Packers. Dwayne Haskins is given minimal opportunities to throw the ball for obvious reasons, and it helps that Washington has been... Read More

Adrian Peterson Facing Favorable Matchup

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson continues to split backfield work with Derrius Guice, but the two of them proved together last week that they can both enjoy success in the right matchup. They'll get their second consecutive "right matchup" this week at Lambeau Field against a Packers Defense giving up the sixth-most rushing yards... Read More

Derrius Guice Could Go Off Again

Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice couldn't have many better matchups in which to follow up on his excellent Week 13 outing. The Packers are allowing the sixth-most yards per game to running backs, and their 13 rushing touchdowns surrendered to RBs is the second-most. We know the Redskins would run the ball on every...

Dwayne Haskins Should Be Ignored As Usual

Washington Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins will go for his third straight victory in Green Bay on Sunday. Whether the Redskins pull off the upset or not, their two-game winning streak is in spite of their quarterback--not because of him. Haskins has just two touchdowns in six appearances this year, and hasn't eclipsed 215 passing yards... Read More

Redskins Defense Puts Up Fantasy Numbers Again

The Washington Redskins Defense posted its second straight quality fantasy outing on Sunday, forcing two turnovers and collecting seven sacks for good measure against the Panthers. Chief among the reasons for the Redskins' success against Carolina was their ability to limit what Christian McCaffrey was able to do on the ground. McCaffrey has been nearly... Read More

Terry McLaurin Struggling In Hopeless Passing Game

Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin hauled in just two catches for eight yards on four targets in Sunday's win over the Panthers. While his lack of production in Week 13 can easily be attributed to the success Washington had in the running game, the much more glaring issue burdening McLaurin's fantasy value is his... Read More

Kelvin Harmon Continues Connection With His QB

Washington Redskins wide receiver Kelvin Harmon led his team in targets for the second time in three games on Sunday. While the fact that he did so in Week 13 with just five targets tells you everything you need to know about Washington's passing game, Harmon is clearly emerging as a preferred option for quarterback...

Chris Thompson A Non-Factor Against Panthers

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson was held in check on Sunday, accounting for just 29 total yards on four touches. While the per-touch efficiency was certainly there, Thompson wasn't needed much as a pass-catcher in a game the Redskins dominated on the ground with Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice. Thompson will continue to suffer... Read More

Adrian Peterson Goes Off Despite Workload Split

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson toted the ball 13 times on Sunday, racking up 99 yards and a touchdown on the way. The Week 13 performance marked the first time since Derrius Guice returned three games ago that Peterson was able to do anything of consequence with his limited work. In what has to... Read More

Derrius Guice Does Major Damage In Breakout Performance

Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice erupted for 129 yards and two touchdowns on just 10 carries in Sunday's win over the Panthers, marking by far the best performance of his young career. There was promise coming into the matchup against a porous Panthers run defense, with the downside being that Guice might continue to... Read More

Dwayne Haskins Defers To Running Game In Win

Washington Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins won his second consecutive game on Sunday in a surprise road upset of the Panthers. While the Redskins will take 'em any way they can get 'em at this point, Haskins once again did not significantly factor into the victory. It was his third straight game with a completion rate...

Redskins Defense Not Poised For Success In Week 13

The Washington Redskins Defense may be garnering some attention on the waiver wire for Week 13 after forcing four turnovers and scoring a special teams touchdown last week against the Lions. The Redskins also recorded six sacks to round out what was an impressive fantasy day. While Washington has been a half-decent real-life defense (all... Read More

Paul Richardson An Afterthought Even If Active

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson is listed as questionable with a hamstring injury after departing from last week's game against the Lions. Even in the event of a late-week turnaround, Richardson should be left far away from all fantasy lineups for Week 13. In the last three games he's played, he's caught just eight... Read More

Kelvin Harmon A Long Shot For Week 13

Washington Redskins wide receiver Kelvin Harmon is trending in the right direction after hauling in eight of 12 targets in his last two games. In Week 13, he'll face a Panthers team that has allowed WRs to catch more passes than any other defense in the league. While it may be tempting to look favorably... Read More

Terry McLaurin With PPR Upside Against Panthers

Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin gets to face a Panthers Defense allowing the most receptions per game to his position of any team in the league. In theory, McLaurin should be set up for a nice PPR outing in this matchup. The downside is that he'll have Dwayne Haskins throwing him the ball, which... Read More

Dwayne Haskins Not Worth The Risk In Week 13

Washington Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins has done nothing to earn the trust of fantasy owners, and a matchup with Carolina on Sunday doesn't lend itself to any uptick in optimism. Haskins has committed five more turnovers than he's thrown touchdown passes, and has been held completely scoreless in two of his three starts. The Panthers... Read More

Derrius Guice Has Week 13 Upside If Volume Is There

Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice is the high-ceiling option in a frustrating backfield split with Adrian Peterson. Guice has taken a relative back seat to Peterson since returning from injury two weeks ago, but his youth and explosiveness make him the more likely candidate to go off despite a limited touch count. The Redskins... Read More

Adrian Peterson A Risky Play Despite Favorable Matchup

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson figures to split touches with Derrius Guice again in Week 13, which naturally limits his fantasy value in an otherwise great matchup against the Panthers. Carolina is allowing nearly five yards per carry to opposing backs, and no team has permitted more rushing touchdowns. Unfortunately for his fantasy owners,... Read More

Redskins Defense Shows Up In Gritty, Low-Scoring Win

The Washington Redskins Defense played with admirable pride in a hard-fought 19-16 win over the Lions on Sunday. Detroit was playing without its franchise quarterback again, which means this performance must be viewed through the appropriate scope. Still, the Redskins' efforts held the Lions to one touchdown on the day and resulted in four Lions... Read More
