Trey Quinn Invisible Yet Again In Week 6

Washington Redskins wide receiver Trey Quinn saw just four targets in Sunday's win over the Dolphins, collecting two of them for a total of eight yards. This was the third consecutive game in which Quinn was targeted only four times, and also the third straight contest in which he failed to break 20 yards receiving.... Read More

Redskins Defense Holds On In Road Win

The Washington Redskins Defense finally played winning football for most of Week 6, albeit against the lowly Miami Dolphins. The Redskins picked off Josh Rosen twice and sacked him five times. Washington didn't allow Miami any momentum on offense until Ryan Fitzpatrick took over at QB in the fourth quarter. If not for a failed... Read More

Jeremy Sprinkle Not Thriving As Starter

Washington Redskins tight end Jeremy Sprinkle turned in another disappointing day despite standing in for injured Vernon Davis and Jordan Reed. Sprinkle saw just three targets in Sunday's victory, grabbing two of them for 24 yards. At this point, it doesn't appear to matter when or if Davis or Reed come back, because Sprinkle isn't...

Paul Richardson Catches Zero Passes In Week 6

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson was targeted four times on Sunday, hauling in zero of them. This would qualify as a huge disappointment in a favorable matchup if Richardson had done anything of consequence in recent weeks, but he had only caught five passes for 28 yards in his last two games combined. He... Read More

Chris Thompson Sees Just Five Touches In Win

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson touched the ball a season-low five times for 20 total yards on Sunday. Washington's success on the ground with Adrian Peterson minimized the need to turn to Thompson as often as usual in the passing game, and he naturally turned in his worst fantasy outing of the season. For... Read More

Terry McLaurin Continues Breakout Rookie Campaign

Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught two touchdowns in Miami on Sunday, and those scores just happened to make the difference in his team's first victory of the season. McLaurin has now caught a touchdown in all four games in which both he and Case Keenum have played. His final line for the day... Read More

Adrian Peterson Finally Has A Day Against Dolphins

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson carried the ball 23 times for 118 yards in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. He was unable to cap off his performance with a touchdown, but his fantasy owners will take it after the veteran failed to reach even 30 yards on the ground in three of his previous... Read More

Case Keenum Plays Well Enough To Win In Miami

Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum didn't have his best statistical performance on Sunday, completing just over 50% of his 25 pass attempts for 166 yards. What mattered more than any of that was the two touchdowns he threw to help the Redskins earn their first win of the 2019 season over the Dolphins. Keenum found... Read More

Paul Richardson A Fantasy Long Shot In Week 6

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson has had one solid fantasy outing: an eight-catch, 83-yard game capped off with a touchdown in Week 3. He has failed to eclipse 20 receiving yards in three of his other four games, and one of those came in a week when Terry McLaurin was inactive. Case Keenum did... Read More

Chris Thompson Facing Favorable Week 6 Matchup

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson has been the one constant in a volatile offense this season. No matter how bad things have gotten, Thompson has seen at least five targets in every game and is averaging an even seven. He trails only Terry McLaurin for the overall team lead on a per-game basis. Moreover,... Read More

Adrian Peterson: Now Or Never Against Dolphins

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson finally has a matchup he can take advantage of in the Miami Dolphins for Week 6. The Dolphins have played one fewer game than most of the league, yet they come into this week having given up the third-most total rushing yards to opposing backs. They're giving up 153.75...

Jeremy Sprinkle In Line For Starting TE Work

Washington Redskins tight end Jeremy Sprinkle will have his second chance to produce in a starting role with Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis set to miss Week 6. He didn't make much of his first such opportunity last week, though it's worth noting his opponent in that contest was the Patriots. Sprinkle's next opponent is... Read More

Terry McLaurin Back On The Fantasy Map

Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin will have Case Keenum throwing him the ball again on Sunday, which bodes well for the former's fantasy outlook. McLaurin has reached double-digit fantasy points and scored a touchdown in each of the three games both he and Keenum started. The Dolphins have given up an average of 15... Read More

Redskins Defense Picked Apart By Patriots In Second Half

The Washington Redskins Defense began Sunday's loss looking like they might pull off the impossible and keep a game against the heavily favored Patriots close. They picked off Tom Brady in the red zone late in the second quarter, and surprisingly trailed by a score of just 12-7 at halftime. But the Patriots are a... Read More

Chris Thompson Sees Seven Targets In Loss

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson was tied with Terry McLaurin for the team lead in targets at seven each in Sunday's defeat. While Thompson only turned the volume into five catches for 17 yards, the silver lining here is that it doesn't appear to matter much who the Redskins play at quarterback. Thompson is... Read More

Adrian Peterson Unproductive Yet Again

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson rushed seven times for 18 yards against the Patriots on Sunday. Peterson has yet to total more than 37 rushing yards in any game this season, and has scored just one touchdown. He may have begun the season as a volume-dependent flex option, but his total lack of production... Read More

Jeremy Sprinkle Falls Flat In Starting Role

Washington Redskins tight end Jeremy Sprinkle caught two of three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's loss. Like a handful of his teammates, his futility in Week 5 can't be entirely attributed to anything he did wrong. The Redskins are just a poor offensive team, and Colt McCoy was never going to give them a... Read More

Paul Richardson Catches Two Passes In Loss

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson caught both of his targets for 14 total yards on Sunday. To say that Richardson was a non-factor in the loss is an understatement, but one that must be applied to all of his teammates as well. He has yet to produce any truly fantasy-friendly stat lines through five... Read More

Terry McLaurin Held In Check By Patriots

Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin hauled in three of seven targets for 51 yards in Sunday's lopsided defeat at the hands of New England. It was his first game back from an injury that kept him out in Week 4, and also his first game without a touchdown. Such was to be expected with... Read More

Steven Sims Jr. Scores Long Touchdown In Loss

Washington Redskins wide receiver Steven Sims Jr. took a rare rushing attempt 65 yards to the house for his team's only score of the day. He was targeted three times and caught two of them for one yard. Outside of the fluky touchdown, his stat line in the defeat was par for the course with... Read More

Colt McCoy Predictably Struggles Against Patriots

Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy completed 18 of 27 passes for 119 yards, no touchdowns, and an interception in Sunday's loss to New England. The Redskins are very obviously the worst team in the NFC, and with their season already over at 0-5, there is no justifiable reason for the coaching staff not to roll... Read More

Trey Quinn Remains Off The Fantasy Radar

Washington Redskins wide receiver Trey Quinn is averaging six targets per game, which would earn him deep PPR consideration under better circumstances. Unfortunately for Quinn, things are likely to get worse before they get better. His opponent for Week 5 is a Patriots team that has given up just one offensive touchdown all season, and... Read More

Paul Richardson An Unsafe Play For Week 5

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson is not a reliable fantasy option this week whether Terry McLaurin plays or not. Last week, in an extremely favorable matchup against a porous Giants pass defense, the Redskins looked his way five times. He caught three of them for 14 yards. Needless to say, the Patriots present a... Read More

Chris Thompson A Risky Flex Play Against Patriots

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson is in line for his usual fantasy-friendly pass-catching volume on Sunday, as he leads the team in total targets and trails only Terry McLaurin in targets per game.

Jeremy Sprinkle The Primary TE For Redskins On Sunday

Washington Redskins tight end Jeremy Sprinkle will start against the Patriots by process of elimination for Week 5.
