Washington Redskins news, rumors and injuries
Fri, 02 Dec 2016 17:56:24 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Jackson was able to post 118 yards in the last game and has two touchdowns in the last two games. He will be facing a tough Arizona Cardinals defense but can still be a flex option in most leagues.

Washington Redskins DE Anthony Lanier (shin) has been ruled out for Week 13. CB Bashaud Breeland (ankle), LB Terence Garvin (shoulder), DE Ricky Jean-Francois (knee), LB Trent Murphy (ankle), OT Ty Nsekhe (ankle), OG Brandon Scherff (ankle) and LS Nick Sundberg (back) are listed as questionable. Lanier did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 2. Breeland, Nsekhe and Scherff were limited during practice. Garvin, Jean-Francois, Murphy and Sundberg fully participated in practice. S Will Blackmon (thumb) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson should be fine for the game against the Arizona Cardinals and will see his usual workload. He has not posted great numbers in his limited playing time and can be passed over in all leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Reed should be considered week-to-week at this point. Vernon Davis will get the start and will be a viable TE1 during his absence given all of the injuries at the position across the league. This week, however, Davis faces one of the stingiest defenses against tight ends, so owners should consider other options if at all possible.

Fantasy Tip: We noted yesterday Reed was unlikely to play Week 13 and this does nothing to change that. He should be considered week-to-week at this point, and there is a strong likelihood he won't resemble the dominant player he has been this season until 2017. Vernon Davis will fill in this week (if not beyond) and should considered a low-end TE1 during his absence.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson tends to be an all-or-nothing fantasy play, but with touchdowns in back-to-back games, he could be worth the gamble as a WR3 in Week 13.

Washington Redskins DE Anthony Lanier (shin) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 1. CB Bashaud Breeland (ankle), LB Terence Garvin (shoulder), DE Ricky Jean-Francois (knee), OT Ty Nsekhe (ankle), OT Brandon Scherff and RB Chris Thompson (illness) were limited participants, and CB Will Blackmon (thumb), LB Trent Murphy (ankle) and LS Nick Sundberg (back) were full participants.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should check the inactive list to make sure of Reed's status but will need to have other options available if he is ruled out. Vernon Davis would receive most of the work at tight end if Reed sits out and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some leagues.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (shoulder) said the Grade 3 separation of the AC joint in his left shoulder continues to cause a lot of pain, and he only has 30 percent range of motion. The team is taking a wait-and-see approach on his status for Week 13.
Fantasy Tip: It's hard to see him playing and being a factor if it's that serious of an issue. Vernon Davis had five catches for 68 yards last week and would be a low-end TE1 to consider if Reed is out against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is coming off a solid 118-yard performance in Week 12 and has caught a touchdown in his last two games. He has been targeted at least seven times in five of his last six games and can be a decent flex option in most leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Reed has not been ruled out at this point, but he probably will not play if he misses all three days of practice. Owners will need other options ready in case Reed is ruled out. Vernon Davis would receive a bigger role in the passing game and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues if Reed sits.

Fantasy Tip: He ranks sixth in the NFL averaging 19 points per game over the stretch in PPR formats. The Redskins face the Arizona Cardinals this week, and they've actually been a midrange matchup against WRs the last five weeks. However, Crowder could draw extra attention from Patrick Peterson. Either way, he's a legit WR2 this week.

Fantasy Tip: Reed should be considered extremely questionable at best for Week 13 against the Arizona Cardinals after suffering a Grade 3 AC joint separation Thanksgiving against the Dallas Cowboys. Owners should have other options in mind for him this week and beyond, so tight-end needy owners should feel free to add Vernon Davis while awaiting more updates on Reed. Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder figure to benefit the most in fantasy should Reed not be able to play.
