Washington Redskins RB Wendell Smallwood rushed for five yards on two carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 9. He also caught two passes for minus two yards.
Huddle Up: Smallwood has been filling in for Chris Thompson over the last few weeks but has not been very productive. He likely will return to the bench when Thompson returns and can be avoided in all leagues.

Washington Redskins RB Wendell Smallwood rushed for 23 yards on five carries against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7. He also caught one pass for 18 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Smallwood filled in for Chris Thompson on offense and had a decent outing. He likely will have a similar role in Week 8 if Thompson misses another game but probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood had a strong offseason program and assistant head coach and running backs coach Duce Staley is excited about his role in the offense. 'I'm excited about Wendell. Like we talked about earlier, we have a great room, a great group, and they're all competitive, and they know they're competing against each other, which is awesome,' Staley said. 'Wendell's picked his game up during OTAs. We all know he can catch the ball out of the backfield. He's just getting better within the offense, learning our offense even more.'
Huddle Up: Smallwood will be looking to carve out his piece of the pie with Jordan Howard, Miles Sanders, Corey Clement, Josh Adams and others in the mix all looking to claim their stake in the Philly backfield. Smallwood is worth a late-round pick in PPR leagues at this point, but the backfield is just too crowded to expect much more.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood rushed 10 times for 33 yards while adding a catch for six yards in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 13.
Huddle Up: Smallwood had 11 touches to lead the Philly backfield, while Darren Sproles had six total touches. While he led the way in this one, Smallwood's fantasy outlook heading into 2019 is rather murky with Corey Clement likely back, and Darren Sproles perhaps in the picture again, too.
