Free-agent RB Rob Kelley (Redskins) signed an undisclosed deal with the New Orleans Saints Tuesday, July 30.
Huddle Up: Kelley had some flashes in Washington and could be an RB5 upside pick if he fits in well.

Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine is expected to be the third active running back on game day while RB Rob Kelley (toe) is sidelined.
Huddle Up: Kelley is nursing a toe injury and might be sidelined at least a month, so Perine will get a chance to show what he can do. However, he still has Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson ahead of him, so Perine's roll will be rather limited. Perine is still not worth using in most fantasy leagues unless Peterson or Thompson go down, too.

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley said he is playing faster now that his weight is down to 221 pounds this season.
Huddle Up: Kelley's spot on the roster isn't set in stone, which probably has a lot to do with his leaner frame. If he does make the team, he will be a backup with little value in fantasy leagues.

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley has performed very well during the early part of training camp, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Kelley is probably competing with Samaje Perine for a spot on the roster, so Kelley will need to perform well in the preseason to make the team. He probably would be a backup if he makes the team and should be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley has been the first running back to go through individual drills with running backs coach Randy Jordan during the first two weeks of organized team activities. He's also taken a majority of the reps at running back with the first-team offense.
Huddle Up: Kelley appeared to be on the verge of breaking out following a solid rookie campaign in 2016 before injuries limited him to seven games a year ago. With a logjam in the Washington backfield, it's best to wait and see how the workload will be split up during training camp.

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle, knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 14.
Huddle Up: Chris Thompson will continue to be Washington's most valuable fantasy running back, but Samaje Perine will now have a more substantial role in the offense. He hasn't done much with the opportunities he's been given this season, but he deserves to be added off waivers nonetheless.

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle, knee) might be placed on the Reserve/Injured list after suffering a high-ankle sprain and a medial collateral ligament sprain in Week 10. Kelley will at least miss multiple games.
Huddle Up: An already forgettable season becomes even more forgettable for the sophomore running back. With Kelley sidelined for the foreseeable future, Samaje Perine stands to take over running duties, but Chris Thompson remains Washington's most valuable running back. Pick up Perine off waivers if he's available.

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle, knee) suffered a high ankle sprain and a sprained medial collateral ligament in his knee in Week 10.
Huddle Up: Both injuries could keep him out six weeks or more. Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson will split the load, with Thompson mostly in on passing downs. Both are worth owning and make matchup plays as a flex option.

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle, knee) suffered ankle and knee injuries in Week 10 and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see how long Kelley may be sidelined because of the injuries. Samaje Perine could receive most of the carries if Kelley misses extended playing time and could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley rushed 14 times for 18 yards in the Week 9 game against the Seattle Seahawks, but he was able to score twice.
Huddle Up: Kelley didn't have a great average, but fantasy owners can't complain about two scores, including the game-winner in the fourth quarter. He remains an RB3 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 10 against the visiting Vikings.
