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.

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.

Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington averaged 5.4 yards per carry in 2016 and was tied for sixth in the NFL with seven runs of 20-plus yards on 87 carries.
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.
