Redskins Defense Embarrassed By Cowboys

The Washington Redskins Defense was not entirely without redeemable qualities throughout the 2019 season, but this unit did not end the year showing many signs of encouragement. Washington gave up a combined 88 points in its final two contests, including 47 to Dallas in Week 17. With ownership of the second overall pick in next... Read More

Kelvin Harmon Ends 2019 On A Low Note

Washington Redskins wide receiver Kelvin Harmon was targeted five times in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. He caught three of them for 33 yards. Even with Terry McLaurin out, Harmon couldn't get going as a primary receiving threat for Case Keenum. Harmon's second half of the season was encouraging; he racked up nearly 80% of... Read More

Chris Thompson Wraps Up Disappointing Season

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson saw a total of four touches in Sunday's season finale, putting the finishing touches on another disappointing fantasy campaign. After beginning the season with a relatively productive pass-catching role, Thompson never meshed his way back into the Redskins offense upon his return from injury in the first week of... Read More

Adrian Peterson Goes For 78 Yards To End Season

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson went for 78 yards on 13 carries against the Cowboys to end the 2019 season. The best way to recap his second year with the Redskins would be to say that he did the best he could with what he had. Peterson served as Washington's featured back for most... Read More

Steven Sims Jr. Finishes Strong

Washington Redskins wide receiver Steven Sims Jr. capped off a promising end to the season with five catches for 81 yards and a touchdown against the Cowboys on Sunday. It was Sims' third consecutive game with at least five catches and a touchdown, a nice high note on which to head into the offseason. How... Read More

Case Keenum Has Pedestrian Finale

Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum completed 18 of 37 passes for 206 yards against the Cowboys on Sunday, with a touchdown and a pick to round out his line. The final week of 2019 was just about business as usual for Keenum, as he never quite excelled in an admittedly poor Redskins offense. Time will... Read More

Chris Thompson Not A Safe Week 17 Play

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson has not been operating in the pass-catching role that once made him a valuable fantasy play in PPR formats, and now he's run out of time for the 2019 season. Thompson has seen just 17 targets in four games since returning from injury in the first week of December,... Read More

Adrian Peterson A Volume-Based Fantasy Play

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson will look to close out the 2019 season on a high note against the Cowboys in Week 17. The veteran has scored a touchdown in four straight games, and has routinely seen a touch count well into double digits when he's been the lead running back for the Redskins.... Read More

Steven Sims Jr. Could See Increased Role

Washington Redskins wide receiver Steven Sims Jr. has stepped up in a big way over the last two weeks, racking up 11 catches for 109 yards and three touchdowns. In Week 17 he will have a slight upgrade at quarterback in Case Keenum, and he might wind up as Washington's top receiving option if Terry... Read More

Case Keenum Not A Safe Option In Finale

Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum may be able to lift the fantasy profiles of a couple of his pass-catchers on Sunday, but he's far from a shoe-in to help fantasy owners in the same way. No one really knows which Cowboys team is going to show up in any given week, but they do have... Read More

Terry McLaurin Has Solid PPR Day

Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin was targeted nine times in Sunday's game against the Giants. He caught seven of them for 86 yards, but was held out of the endzone in a game that otherwise featured a ton of scoring. McLaurin remains the primary receiving option in this offense, and that is not influenced... Read More

Steven Sims Jr. Scores Twice In Overtime Shootout

Washington Redskins wide receiver Steven Sims Jr. hauled in six of a team-high 10 targets in Sunday's loss to the Giants. Two of Sims' six receptions went for touchdowns, and he caught one from each of the two quarterbacks the Redskins utilized on Sunday. Sims is becoming difficult to ignore after catching 11 of 21...

Adrian Peterson Bailed Out By Late Touchdown

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson turned in his least-lucrative fantasy outing in several weeks on Sunday, accumulating just 36 rushing yards on 15 carries. Luckily, Peterson found the end zone in the fourth quarter to keep from totally torpedoing the championship hopes of his fantasy owners. Week 16 marked Peterson's fourth straight game with...

Case Keenum Plays Well In Relief Effort

Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum was called on to fill in for the injured Dwayne Haskins in Sunday's overtime shootout against the Giants. The veteran completed 16 of 22 passes for 158 yards and a touchdown, adding a game-tying rushing touchdown in the closing seconds of the fourth quarter for good measure. Keenum's status as...

Redskins Defense Risky With A Chance Of Turnovers

The Washington Redskins Defense has proven effective in forcing turnovers, and on Sunday they'll face a Giants offense that has committed turnovers on a league-high 19.5% of offensive possessions. Giants QB Daniel Jones in particular is responsible for an alarming number of these giveaways, and he's back under center this week. The Redskins are also... Read More

Terry McLaurin With Heaps Of Upside For Week 16

Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin will square up against a Giants secondary that has been regularly dismantled by his position. New York has allowed the fourth-most receiving yards and the third-most receiving touchdowns to wideouts. McLaurin's fantasy profile regrettably comes with a wide array of potential outcomes based on the offense he's stuck in,... Read More

Chris Thompson Not Worth The Risk

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson has been back on the field for three weeks, with no discernible rhyme or reason to his usage rate in this span. He was targeted eight times in a Week 14 loss to the Packers, but that game is sandwiched in between two performances in which he might as... Read More

Adrian Peterson A Volume-Based Flex Option

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson may not be the 25-carry, 150-yard workhorse he used to be, but he gets the job done. Peterson has racked up at least 66 yards on the ground in every game this season in which he's seen at least 13 carries. He's also scored a touchdown in each of... Read More

Dwayne Haskins Not In Play For Week 16

Washington Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins has arguably the most favorable matchup of his young career on the docket in a home bout with the Giants this week. The Giants are the seventh-worst defense in the NFL in terms of passing yards allowed and touchdown rate on opposing pass attempts. Unfortunately, Haskins hasn't given fantasy owners... Read More

Redskins Defense Knocked Around By Eagles

The Washington Redskins Defense ended a three-game streak of playing admirably in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. Carson Wentz launched three touchdowns through the air, while Miles Sanders racked up 172 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns of his own. The Redskins didn't help their bottom line with turnovers and sacks the way they have... Read More

Kelvin Harmon A Non-Factor Again

Washington Redskins wide receiver Kelvin Harmon was largely absent from his team's offensive attack for the second week in a row on Sunday. Harmon caught two passes on three targets and accumulated just 22 total yards in a loss to the Eagles. This is a discouraging trend for Harmon after he appeared to be carving... Read More

Steven Sims Jr. Targeted 11 Times In Loss

Washington Redskins wide receiver Steven Sims Jr. saw a surprising 11 targets in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, converting them into five catches for 45 yards and a score. This is Sims' second straight game with a noticeably increased role in the Redskins passing game, so this might not be a flash in the pan.... Read More

Terry McLaurin Rewards Fantasy Faith In Week 15

Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin hauled in all five of the passes thrown his way on Sunday, producing 130 yards and a touchdown. McLaurin's two best fantasy outings of the year have now both come against the Eagles, so Philly is likely happy to be finished with him until 2020. The Redskins' number-one receiver... Read More

Chris Thompson Disappears In Loss To Eagles

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson was sparingly involved in his team's passing attack on Sunday, seeing just three targets and catching two of them. This was disappointing on a number of fronts, starting with the fact that Thompson had led the Redskins in targets and receptions a week ago. Sunday's game was precisely the... Read More

Adrian Peterson Produces Start-Worthy Value

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson overcame a difficult matchup en route to a respectable fantasy outing on Sunday against the Eagles. Peterson racked up 66 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries, adding another 25 yards on three receptions. The veteran running back has reached the level of dependability at which he can usually...

Dwayne Haskins Plays Best Game Of Young Career

Washington Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins completed 19 of 28 throws for 261 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. For the first time in more than a month, Haskins completed over 60% of his passes. Sunday also marked a career-high for passing yards and was the second time the rookie threw multiple... Read More

Redskins Defense A Shaky Option For Week 15

The Washington Redskins Defense has played well enough to win two of its last three games, and kept the third respectable in a tough road matchup with the Packers last week. Up next is an Eagles offense that has struggled at times to score points, and whose depth at WR will be tested with Alshon... Read More
