Washington Redskins TE Jeremy Sprinkle ended up with two grabs for 24 yards on three targets in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Sprinkle was the top tight end with Vernon Davis inactive and Jeremy Reed on IR, but he isn't someone to rely upon for fantasy purposes in Week 7 or beyond.

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson had no receptions on four targets and one run for no gain in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Wideouts not named Terry McLaurin were essentially a non-factor in this one. Richardson will look to bounce back in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers, but he isn't someone to rely upon in most fantasy leagues.

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson posted three runs for 12 yards and two grabs for eight yards on three targets in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Interim head coach Bill Callahan rode Adrian Peterson hard, with all other running backs taking a backseat. We'll see if that continues into Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers, but the change in coaching, and perhaps philosophy, is an ominous sign for Thompson's fantasy owners.

Washington Redskins WR Terry McLaurin registered four receptions for 100 yards and two touchdowns in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: McLaurin continues to shine for the Redskins, rolling up 23 grabs for 408 yards and five touchdowns through five games, including at least one score in four of his outings. He has emerged as a trustworthy WR3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson rushed 23 times for 118 yards in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins and he added two grabs for 18 yards on his two targets.
Huddle Up: The 34-year-old proved he still has plenty left in the tank. He entered the day with 40 carries for 108 yards and a touchdown during Jay Gruden's first four games. Gruden was fired, and apparently interim coach Bill Callahan intends to ride the veteran. That's great news for the veteran and his fantasy owners. We'll see if it continues in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Washington Redskins QB Case Keenum completed 13-of-25 passes for 166 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Keenum was back after a foot injury and the Redskins were able to narrowly escape with their first win under interim coach Bill Callahan. Still, Keenum isn't a recommended fantasy option heading into Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (foot) suffered a foot injury during the Week 6 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Thompson has been used mostly as a receiver out of the backfield and has posted at least 50 yards in three of the five previous game entering Week 6. He is a solid flex option in point-per-reception leagues if he is healthy.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) on Saturday, Oct. 12, was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a concussion. In a corresponding move, S Jeremy Reaves was activated from the practice squad.
Huddle Up: Sadly, Reed's seventh pro season looks like it might be over before it even gets started. It's the latest health setback for the star-crossed tight end, whose career has to be considered in serious jeopardy.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins will serve as the backup to QB Case Keenum against the Miami Dolphins in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Haskins will have a chance to show he can be a franchise quarterback at some point, but in the meantime, he is only a fantasy asset in keeper formats and dynasty leagues.

Washington Redskins QB Case Keenum (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Keenum has thrown seven touchdowns and four interceptions in four games this season and has regained the starting job for the time being. He should have a favorable matchup but is still only a starting option in two-quarterback leagues.

Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: Davis needs to be cleared by the doctors before he is allowed to play again, so fantasy players should monitor the situation. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end if he plays because of the favorable matchup.

Washington Redskins QB Case Keenum (foot) got in a full practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Keenum will start Sunday against the Miami Dolphins as long as he's able to get back on the field. He'll return to being a high-end QB2/streaming option, especially in the plush Week 6 matchup.

Washington Redskins QB Case Keenum (foot) will start this week if his foot injury allows him to play, according to sources.
Huddle Up: He has a great matchup against the Miami Dolphins this week. If you're looking for a streamer option, you could do worse than Keenum this week.

Washington Redskins QB Case Keenum (foot) might start in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins, while QB Colt McCoy is also a candidate, but interim head coach Bill Callahan declined to name a starter. Callahan said they are watching the medical report on Keenum.
Huddle Up: Neither Keenum nor McCoy are terribly attractive from a fantasy perspective, although facing the Miami Dolphins could potentially make whomever starts a decent streaming option if you're desperate for a bye-week replacement.

Washington Redskins WR Steven Sims had two receptions for just one yards in Week 5 against the New England Patriots, although he did have the only touchdown on a 65-yard running play.
Huddle Up: Despite the long touchdown for Sims, he isn't someone to bother with in fantasy football heading into Week 6 in most leagues.

Washington Redskins WR Terry McLaurin posted three receptions for 51 yards on seven targets in Week 5 against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: McLaurin saw his three-game streak with a touchdown snapped, and it's likely more the fact Colt McCoy was under center rather than anything the rookie out of Ohio State did. Perhaps a rebound is in order in Week 6 against the lowly and defensively-challenged Miami Dolphins.

Posted 10/06/2019 9:38 pm UTC
Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson ran seven times for just 18 yards in Week 5 against the New England Patriots and he did not have a catch or target.
Huddle Up: Peterson was tremendously useful from a fantasy perspective in 2018, but he is hardly worth a roster spot outside of the very deepest leagues. The Redskins travel to meet the Dolphins in Week 6, so perhaps he is a decent streaming option if byes have you boxed in.

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed four times for 21 yards in Week 5 against the New England Patriots and he added five receptions for 17 yards on his seven targets.
Huddle Up: Thompson has four or more receptions in all five games this season, and he remains useful as a RB3 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues of 12 or more teams. His fantasy value is much lesser in standard play. The Redskins face the lowly Miami Dolphins in Week 6.

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy completed just 18-of-27 passes for 119 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 5 against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: McCoy's start against the unbeaten Patriots went about as well as everyone could have predicted. He isn't worth a look outside the very deepest fantasy leagues which use two starting signal callers.

Washington Redskins WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 5 game.
Huddle Up: McLaurin will be working with a new quarterback this week but should continue to be a main target in the passing game. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson ranks second among running backs with 251 receiving yards this season, and he is tied for second among backs in both receptions and targets with 20 and 28, respectively.
Huddle Up: Thompson's lack of involvement in the run game limits his upside, but he does have potential as a flex option in PPR formats. However, fantasy owners may want to steer clear of Thompson in Week 5 as Washington prepares to face a stingy New England defense.

Washington Redskins WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 4, and is listed as questionable for Week 5.
Huddle Up: McLaurin probably will be considered a game-time decision, so fantasy players will need to check the inactive list. He will be working with a new quarterback and is facing one of the best defenses in the NFL, so players could consider benching McLaurin this week.

Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 4, and has been ruled out for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Jeremy Sprinkle likely will receive the start at tight end with Davis and Jordan Reed sidelined but should not be a starting option in any league.

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy will start Sunday, Oct. 6 when the Redskins host the New England Patriots in Week 5.
Huddle Up: It will be only McCoy's third start since 2014, and it will come against what has been the league's top defense so far. With Washington's banged-up and shaky surrounding offensive cast, use McCoy only in deeper QB leagues.

Posted 10/04/2019 4:25 pm UTC
Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis (concussion) is not practicing Friday, Oct. 4, and remains in the concussion protocol.
Huddle Up: If you've been relying on Davis at tight end, it's definitely time to find another option as it looks like he'll miss his first game of the season.
