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.

Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington posted five receptions for 24 yards on six targets in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins and he had one rush for no gain.
Huddle Up: Washington can be an effective change of pace back for the Raiders when they need a spark, but they need way more in this game. The Raiders offense was horrendous. They'll look to rebound in Week 4 at Denver in another tough matchup. Washington is only worth using in deeper PPR leagues as long as Marshawn Lynch remains healthy.

Huddle Up: Washington showed intriguing potential in limited action. If Latavius Murray signs elsewhere this offseason, Washington's fantasy value should skyrocket.

Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington is benefitting from being deactivated earlier in the year because he was able to take care of his body and learn the offense, according to OT Donald Penn.
Huddle Up: Washington had a big performance in Week 16, and while he has been too inconsistent to trust in the finale, he will be a sleeper candidate heading into 2017, especially in dynasty formats.

Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington might be in line to start in Week 5 against the San Diego Chargers, as RB Latavius Murray (foot) is considered doubtful due to a foot ailment, a source said Wednesday, Oct. 5.

Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington rushed five times for a team-high 30 yards in the Week 4 game against the Baltimore Ravens, with a chunk of the yards coming on a 28-yard scamper. He also had three receptions for 16 yards.
Huddle Up: Washington had the team's longest offensive play of the game. With Latavius Murray struggling with 3.1 yards per carry over his past two outings Washington could see more touches per game at Murray's expense. Scoop him up if he is available off the waiver wire.
