I really like Washington's upside this week.

 

With Zenner and Forsett being his only competition this week, I am fairly confident that this is his chance to breakout and become the three down back he is capable of becoming.

 

Washington Redskins are giving up 28 fantasy points per game to RB's in ppr. 19.33 are rushing points.

Detroit Lions' Friday practice participation, period open to media: No Riddick, Levy, Ngata, Ebron, Corey Robinson,

 

@MikeOHaraNFL How's Washington looking?

 

@KHMakerD looks like he'll play.

 

 

 

 

 

Riddick's potential absence makes DWash a big-time person of interest.  Has the passing down chops to dominate the snaps in this juicy match-up.

You could argue DWash is a better play this week (with Riddick absent) than Ty was.  On par with Jacquizz Rodgers, IMO.

 

Finally, a good week for previously marinating fliers.

 

I would be weary about locking him in until we hear that he'll get majority work / start / won't be limited, even if Riddick is out.

 

Dont want to be walking into a Zenner / Wash / Forsett party.

I own him on all my teams, but I wouldn't say a better play this week than Quizz.

 

Better talent and long term potential, for sure.

 

But still too many unknowns with DWash, quizz OTOH is undoubtedly getting a ton of carries this week against a God awful run defense, and 100% healthy.

Every time I've seen Zenner play, he's looked absolutely amazing. I'm not sure why the coaching staff seemed to want DWash to play over him earlier this year, and I'm not sure they still want that either.

 

I missed out on Zenner this week and just picked up DWash, and I just don't think we can possibly predict who's getting more work this week.

Washington will start, and look good, but not great. Maybe 12/55. Forsett will get passing downs and do nothing with them. Zenner will get a goal line TD.

 

Then we'll gather back here to surmise how awesome Washington could be if he was 100% and getting all the work. 

 

Then Riddick will return bringing us back to square one, just before a 4 week stretch that includes MIN twice and a bye, leaving us with zero clarity heading into week 13 @NO.

Of course.

 

With under a minute left on the clock and nursing a two point lead, Washington will galiantly rip off his longest run of the  game, but will allow the ball to be stripped at mid-field while unnecessarily fighting for additional yardage, leading to a game losing field goal as time expires.

"Weary" means tired.  The word you are looking for is "wary," meaning doubtful, approaching cautiously, suspicious and slow to trust.  Another word is "leery," or reluctant.  Definitely not "weary."

 

And while you will be holding back because you are wary, or leery, of starting Washington, some of us will be heading to the bank to collect that big bundle of cash, yards and touchdowns as our first payment on that RB1 savior we have acquired.

Our resident grammar police strikes again. I try to correct / edit all mistakes but being on mobile 99% of the time I'm on here, auto correct can be a motha sometimes. 

 

Man, you really go hard for the WW lotto tickets you pick up. This time we both have the same guy, but once again, I'm not nearly as optimistic about him as you are.

My philosophy is, why load up with 2 or 3 RB4s for depth?  Grab 5-6 guys who could become RB1s if they hit, then sit back and watch the fireworks if one of them does...
