New Orleans Saints RB Dwayne Washington will be 'invited into the offensive mix' against the Chicago Bears in Week 7 with RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) ruled out, according to Larry Holder of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: While Washington will likely see some touches, Latavius Murray is the back to target if you are looking for a replacement for Kamara. However, a matchup with a tough Chicago defense limits Murray to flex consideration.

New Orleans Saints RB Dwayne Washington rushed 11 times for 108 yards in Week 17 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Washington was getting his chance with Alvin Kamara inactive and Mark Ingram rested early. He is a nice insurance policy heading into 2019, but it would take disaster for him to be worthwhile from a fantasy perspective.

Detroit Lions RB Dwayne Washington rushed seven times for 22 yards in the Week 16 game against the Dallas Cowboys Monday, Dec. 26, and he added one grab for four yards on his two targets.
Huddle Up: Washington was outshined by Zach Zenner, who started hot and saw a bulk of the backfield touches (14), scoring a pair of rushing touchdowns. Washington's fantasy appeal is limited to the deepest of leagues heading into Week 17.

Detroit Lions RB Dwayne Washington rushed 16 times for a team-high 64 yards in the Week 14 game against the Chicago Bears and he added one catch for 10 yards on two targets.
Huddle Up: Washington carried the mail with Zach Zenner spelling him for nine touches and Joique Bell seeing one touch. It looks like Washington is the guy in Motown right now, but treat him as a RB3 going forward in most fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions RB Dwayne Washington has been ruled out for Week 8's game against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Washington's name did not appear on the injury report this week, so it appears as though he is a healthy scratch. This could indicate that RB Theo Riddick could see a sizable workload this week and RB Zach Zenner could see extra snaps as well. Riddick should be viewed as a solid RB2 in most fantasy formats, with Zenner possibly being a flex option in deeper leagues.

Detroit Lions RB Dwayne Washington (ankle) is expected to play against the Houston Texans in Week 8.
Huddle Up: Washington may serve as the No. 2 running back if he is active for the game and would see limited touches during the game. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Detroit Lions RB Dwayne Washington (ankle) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: Washington seems to be ready for Week 8 after missing the last three weeks. His fantasy value is still minimal, though, especially if Theo Riddick returns. It's best to wait at least a week to see how Washington does before plugging him into starting lineups right away.
