Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington will likely serve as the team's lead back in Week 17 if fellow RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) misses the regular-season finale as expected.
Huddle Up: Washington has received 20 and 23 touches in the last two games Jacobs has missed -- with a touchdown in each -- and is low-end RB2 play against the Broncos if indeed Jacobs is sidelined for the third time in the last four games.

Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington rushed 23 times for 85 yards and a touchdown and caught two of his three targets for 21 yards in a 24-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: With Josh Jacobs sidelined, Washington served as a the workhorse in the Oakland backfield. If Jacobs misses the finale, Washington should at least be a flex option against the Denver Broncos.

Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington ran for 53 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries and added 43 more yards on six catches in Week 14 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Josh Jacobs was ruled out earlier in the day, clearing the path for Washington to assume lead-back duties. Jacobs is reportedly set to undergo an MRI in the next day or two to access the amount of damage in his shoulder, making it a possibility the rookie misses Week 15 as well. Whether he does or not, Washington needs to be owned pretty much universally at this point and would be a solid RB2 in fantasy the rest of the way if Oakland decides to save Jacobs for next season.

Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington rushed six times for 17 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Chicago Bears and he added three grabs for 19 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Washington was spelling Josh Jacobs and made the most of his chances. However, as long as Jacobs is healthy, he has limited fantasy appeal. The Raiders are off until Week 7 due to a bye.

Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington has secured the No. 2 running back spot behind RB Josh Jacobs after Oakland released RB Doug Martin. RB Jalen Richard will remain a third-down back.
Huddle Up: Washington has dazzled this summer, and he offers a hint of upside as a last-ditch flier in huge leagues or best-ball setups. He would be the logical handcuff to Josh Jacobs, but there's not a lot of value in drafting him as such in traditional leagues.

Oakland Raiders RBs Chris Warren III and DeAndre Washington are likely competing for one roster spot, in the opinion of NBC Sports Bay Area's Scott Bair, who lists RBs Josh Jacobs, Jalen Richard and Doug Martin as locks to make the 53-man roster.

Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington might be active in Week 7 following the injury to RB Marshawn Lynch (groin).
Huddle Up: Washington has been inactive, but he could see a handful of touches while Lynch is on the shelf. The pecking order appears to be Doug Martin, Jalen Richard and then Washington, so his fantasy value is limited to the deepest leagues for now.

Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington (knee) did not practice for a third straight day on Saturday, Sept. 8 and he has been ruled out for Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: With Washington on the mend it will be Marshawn Lynch and Doug Martin handling the workload, with Jalen Richard also seeing work, particularly on passing downs.

Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington (knee) underwent arthroscopic knee surgery and will not be available for the preseason game Friday, Aug. 24, head coach Jon Gruden said.
Huddle Up: While Washington is unavailable for the all-important dress rehearsal game leading up to the regular season, Gruden is reportedly really high on the scatback. He could have a meaningful role in the Oakland offense as the season progresses, and might emerge as a decent PPR option in deeper leagues.

Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington rushed six times for a team-high 26 yards in Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills and he added a team-best eight receptions for 62 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: Washington and Jalen Richard shared the backfield load with Marshawn Lynch suspended, and he really showed off his versatility with his hands out of the backfield. He isn't a bad option in deeper PPR formats going forward, but keep in mind the Lynch will be back in Week 9 at Miami.
