Ryan Grant caught all three of his targets for 19 yards in the Redskins' Week 7 loss to the Eagles.

Grant has been held to three catches or less in every game since Week 1. It goes without saying, but Grant doesn't belong on 10- or 12-team rosters.

Torrey Smith failed to catch his lone target in the Eagles' Week 7 win over the Redskins.

He wasn't even noticeable in a game the Eagles scored 34 points and Carson Wentz threw four touchdowns. Smith shouldn't be owned in 12-teamers.
Oct 24 - 12:39 AM

Rob Kelley rushed seven times for 16 yards in the Redskins' Week 7 loss to the Eagles.

Kelley added two catches for 14 yards on his two targets in the pass game. He and Chris Thompson each saw seven carries to lead the team, but Thompson again caught a short touchdown and continues to out-produce Kelley. The Redskins can't keep running Kelley for minimal gains on early downs; he's setting the offense up in tough situations by not getting yards on first downs. Kelley has done nothing all year and is by no means a must-hold in 12-team leagues.
Oct 24 - 12:36 AM

Jamison Crowder caught 2-of-6 targets for 28 yards in the Redskins' Week 7 loss to the Eagles.

He continues to be a huge disappointment. The only real positive from Monday night is that Crowder played a team-high 58-of-64 offensive snaps and was second on the team in targets behind Jordan Reed's 10. Crowder has yet to put anything on paper, however, and will be a WR4 next week vs. Dallas.
Oct 24 - 12:34 AM

Alshon Jeffery caught just 2-of-6 targets for 37 yards in the Eagles' Week 7 win over the Redskins.

Even with stud CB Josh Norman out of the lineup, Jeffery was unable to get anything going against the Redskins. He's yet to have a 100-yard game with his new team and continues to be out-produced by both Zach Ertz and Nelson Agholor in the Eagles' pass game. Jeffery gets a plum draw against the 49ers in Philadelphia in Week 8, but he's still just a borderline WR2/3.
Oct 24 - 12:30 AM

Vernon Davis caught all four of his targets for 67 yards in the Redskins' Week 7 loss to the Eagles.

Davis has gone for at least 58 yards receiving in four consecutive games. Even as the No. 2 tight end in this Redskins offense, he's on the fantasy radar because Washington loves to use its tight ends in the pass game. Davis picked up back-to-back 31-yard catches in the first half and remains one of the fastest players at the position. He'll be a TE2 next week against Dallas.
Oct 24 - 12:28 AM

Nelson Agholor caught 4-of-5 targets for 45 yards and one touchdown in the Eagles' Week 7 win over the Redskins.

Agholor has forced himself into the WR3 conversation and should obviously be owned in all formats. He's brimming with confidence in his third season and is making all the catches, snagging a laser strike from Carson Wentz over the middle in the fourth quarter for his fifth touchdown on the young season. He's managed at least 58 yards and/or one touchdown in 6-of-7 games. Agholor gets a tasty matchup against a leaky 49ers secondary at home in Philly in Week 8.
Oct 24 - 12:24 AM

Chris Thompson rushed seven times for 38 yards and caught all five of his targets for 26 yards and one touchdown in the Redskins' Week 7 loss to the Eagles.

Thompson has now totaled 100 yards and/or scored a touchdown in 5-of-6 games. He's not going away, even if the Redskins refuse to increase his workload. Running Rob Kelley on early downs simply isn't working, and it's putting the offense behind in down and distance. Washington needs to commit to going pass-heavy and leaving Thompson on the field. He's also the team's best pass-protecting running back. Thompson will be an RB2/3 next week at home against the Cowboys, but his floor remains low due to the low volume and eventual regression to the mean in the touchdown department.
Oct 24 - 12:20 AM

Wendell Smallwood rushed eight times for 25 yards in the Eagles' Week 7 win over the Redskins.

He added two catches for 14 yards on two targets in the pass game. Smallwood missed the previous two games with a knee injury but returned and got the start on Monday night. He out-carried LeGarrette Blount 7-3 in the first half, but Blount got 11 carries to Smallwood's one after the break. Smallwood also lost out to Corey Clement on a nine-yard receiving touchdown in the third quarter. The Eagles use all three backs, making Smallwood a mere RB4 for now.
Oct 24 - 12:18 AM

Kirk Cousins completed 30-of-40 passes for 306 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in the Redskins' Week 7 loss to the Eagles.

He was sacked four times, and the interception was a horrific throw right to DB Corey Graham deep in the Redskins' territory on a play Cousins was hit by the pass rush. It essentially sealed the loss for the Redskins. But statistically, this was one of Cousins' better games of the season, as he and Jordan Reed hooked up for their first two touchdown connections of the season. Cousins has now thrown for at least 300 yards and multiple touchdowns in three of the last four games. He'll be a QB1 next week in a home game against the Cowboys.
Oct 24 - 12:13 AM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 14 times for just 29 yards in the Eagles' Week 7 win over the Redskins.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Wendell Smallwood returned from his two-game absence with a knee injury and actually got the start in this one, seeing seven carries to Blount's three in the first half. But Blount ended up out-carrying Smallwood 11-1 after the break and got the clock-killing work. This is what we get with Blount; it's either touchdown or bust. He'll be a low-floor RB2 next week at home against the 49ers, but has multi-touchdown upside.
Oct 24 - 12:10 AM

Josh Doctson caught 3-of-5 targets for 39 yards in the Redskins' Week 7 loss to the Eagles.

Doctson got the start at the X receiver spot and played a career-high 54-of-64 (84.4%) snaps and seems to have passed mega-disappointment Terrelle Pryor on the depth chart. Pryor played just 30 snaps, while Jamison Crowder led the team with 58. Doctson didn't do a whole lot with his playing time, but coach Jay Gruden apparently wants to see more now that he's healthy. "We drafted Josh to be the No. 1 guy," Gruden said. "He just has had some injuries. Now that he's healthy, we want to see what he can do." Doctson is worth adding in all formats ahead of a home date against the Cowboys in Week 8. The sky is the limit for Doctson in this pass-happy offense.
Oct 24 - 12:06 AM

Terrelle Pryor caught 2-of-4 targets for 14 yards in the Redskins' Week 7 loss to the Eagles.

The Redskins opened the night with Josh Doctson as the starting X receiver, which is a new wrinkle after Pryor had started the first five games there and previously led all Redskins receivers in snaps. It was a different story Monday night. Doctson played 54-of-64 snaps, while Pryor played 30 and rarely saw the field in the first half. All four of his targets came after the half, and Pryor dropped the two that he didn't catch. After the game, coach Jay Gruden said now that Doctson is healthy. "We drafted Josh to be the No. 1 guy," Gruden said. "He just has had some injuries. Now that he's healthy, we want to see what he can do." Pryor has been a colossal free-agent bust and early-round fantasy pick. He'll be nothing more than bench fodder next week against the Cowboys.

Zach Ertz caught all five of his targets for 89 yards and one touchdown in the Eagles' Week 7 win over the Redskins.

Through seven weeks, Ertz leads all tight ends in targets, catches (39), yards (494), and touchdowns (5), and the five scores matches his career-high that Ertz set as a 2013 rookie. Once appearing allergic to the end zone, Ertz has developed into one of Carson Wentz's favorite targets in the scoring area this season. His score Monday night came from four yards away on a simple flat route. Ertz gets a tough date with the 49ers in Week 8 but is locked in as an elite TE1.
Oct 23 - 11:55 PM

Jordan Reed caught 8-of-10 targets for 64 yards and two touchdowns in the Redskins' 34-24, Week 7 loss to the Eagles on Monday night.

The two scores were Reed's first visits to pay dirt this season. The Eagles are normally very stingy against tight ends, but stud coverage MLB Jordan Hicks injured his ankle and had to be carted off on the second play of the game. Reed and Vernon Davis combined for 131 yards and the two Reed scores on 12 catches. Reed's first touchdown came on a short five-yard slant at the goal line, and the second was on another slant from 12 yards out. Looking as healthy as he has all year, Reed will look to build on this one in a home date with the Cowboys in Week 8.
