DeSean Jackson caught two passes for 39 yards in the Redskins' Week 12 loss to the 49ers.

He was targeted five times. Washington's offense was simplified and run-dominated against San Francisco. Robert Griffin III finished with just 106 passing yards, so the entirety of Washington's pass-catching corps failed to deliver in fantasy leagues. We're at the point where we'd like to see Colt McCoy play, for the sake of Jackson and Pierre Garcon. If Griffin gets another start in Week 13 against the Colts, D-Jax will be a fringe WR3. Things have gotten that bad for the Redskins' passing "attack."

Jermaine Kearse caught one pass for 19 yards in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Cardinals.

Kearse predictably found nowhere to run against Patrick Peterson and Antonio Cromartie. He saw just two targets and was spotted on the sidelines stretching out his shoulder at one point. Kearse will be a poor fantasy bet again on Thanksgiving at San Francisco -- he's been under 20 yards in three of the last five games.

Roy Helu did not log a rushing attempt but caught two passes for nine yards in the Redskins' Week 12 loss to the 49ers.

Alfred Morris was rolling in this one, limiting Helu's usage. One of the NFL's best third-down and change-of-pace backs, we've long wanted to see what Helu could do in more of a full-time role. He is an impending free agent and should get a chance to be a starter this offseason. In 2014, Helu is a Morris handcuff and RB4 in fantasy leagues the rest of the way.

Pierre Garcon secured 3-of-4 targets for 34 yards in the Redskins' Week 12 loss to San Francisco.

The Redskins played simplistic, run-heavy offense in an effort to limit struggling Robert Griffin III's impact on the game. Therefore, Washington's pass catchers put very little into the box score. Garcon has been a minor factor in the Redskins' passing game all season. With decidedly ineffective quarterback play, he's a WR4 entering a Week 13 date with the Colts.

Cooper Helfet sprained his ankle during Sunday's Week 12 win over the Cardinals.

Helfet did well to catch a 20-yard touchdown that sealed the 19-3 win in the fourth quarter, but went down and did not return after that. His status is uncertain. Helfet, splitting time with Tony Moeaki, saw just two targets on the day.

Robert Griffin III completed 11-of-19 passes for 106 yards and rushed four times for 11 yards in the Redskins' Week 12 loss to San Francisco.

He took five sacks and lost a fumble on Washington's final offensive play. One week after RG3 almost single-handedly torpedoed Jay Gruden's offense, the Skins' coaching staff attempted to simplify things for their quarterback by running the ball with a lot of volume against San Francisco's normally stout defensive front. Griffin essentially functioned as a game manager, doing nothing to help a red-hot Alfred Morris. The Skins stayed competitive for longer than expected in this game, but not because of their quarterback. We suppose Griffin deserves credit for "playing hard" against a swarming 49ers' pass rush, although we tend to believe all football players should "play hard." Not even in the fantasy QB1 conversation any longer, Griffin will be a risky two-quarterback-league option in Week 13 against the Colts.

Tony Moeaki caught four passes for 34 yards in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Cardinals.

An already-decimated Seahawks tight end room lost another one Sunday as Cooper Helfet sprained an ankle. So Moeaki, a talented player who was a third-round pick of the Chiefs in 2012, racked up snaps. But even if he starts on Thanksgiving against the 49ers, Moeaki would be a poor fantasy play as part of Seattle's run-heavy, spread-the-wealth pass game.

Robert Turbin rushed four times for 12 yards in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Cardinals.

When Marshawn Lynch was getting his back stretched out in the first quarter, Turbin functioned as an every-down back. He's clearly ahead of Christine Michael and needs to be owned as a handcuff right now given Lynch's repeated problems. The Seahawks are on a short week as the play at San Francisco on Thursday night.
