Jamison Crowder needs another MRI on his long-troublesome ankle.

He's been out for well over a month. "He's not quite 100 percent coming in and out of his cuts," coach Jay Gruden said. "I don't think he's totally comfortable with it. Hopefully by Thursday he has a chance." Filling in for Crowder in Sunday's win over the Bucs, Maurice Harris gained 52 yards on five catches.

Redskins placed OT Geron Christian on injured reserve with a torn MCL, ending his season.

Christian was the No. 74 overall pick of the draft. Even with all the Redskins' offensive line injuries, Christian had yet to crack the starting lineup. He should be 100 percent healthy for next summer's training camp.
Nov 12 - 3:04 PM

Vernon Davis failed to catch his lone target in the Week 10 win over the Bucs.

The two teams combined for 19 points. Davis should have caught a 59-yard touchdown on his target, but Alex Smith badly missed him running wide open down the field. He could have walked into the end zone.
Nov 11 - 4:55 PM

Josh Doctson caught all four of his targets for 46 yards and one touchdown in the Redskins' Week 10 win over the Bucs.

He has a touchdown in back-to-back games, even if the volume isn't there. Doctson's short score in the red zone was the only touchdown of this game. He'll be a WR4 next week when the Redskins host the Texans.
Nov 11 - 4:51 PM

Jordan Reed caught 4-of-6 targets for 51 yards in the Redskins' Week 10 win over the Bucs.

Reed's six targets led the team while his yards were one behind Maurice Harris for the Redskins' high. Reed has remained healthy all season but has shown zero upside in the Alex Smith-led offense. He gets the Texans in Week 11.
Nov 11 - 4:47 PM

Maurice Harris caught all five of his targets for 52 yards in the Redskins' Week 10 win over the Bucs.

Harris led the Redskins in receiving on a day they needed no offense and Alex Smith threw for just 178 yards. For however long Jamison Crowder remains sidelined, Harris will be a decent WR3 in PPR leagues. The Texans are up next.
Nov 11 - 4:43 PM

Kapri Bibbs rushed three times for 28 yards and caught 2-of-4 targets for 13 yards in the Redskins' Week 10 win over the Bucs.

Bibbs has been filling in as Chris Thompson's replacement while he's out hurt. He's a desperation FLEX in deeper PPR leagues when Thompson is out.
Nov 11 - 4:39 PM

Adrian Peterson rushed 19 times for 68 yards in the Redskins' Week 10 win over the Bucs.

He caught both of his targets for a gain of one yard. It was nothing special in the box score, but getting the ball in Peterson's hands is the Redskins' preferred offense to salt away the clock and keep the ball away from the opponent. It's a boring brand of ball, but it works for them right now. Washington is averaging fewer than 20 points per game. Peterson gets the Texans in Week 11.
Nov 11 - 4:31 PM

Alex Smith completed 19-of-27 passes for 178 yards and one touchdown in the Redskins' 16-3, Week 10 win over the Bucs.

The Tampa Bay offense thoroughly outplayed the Redskins' unit between the 20s, but the Bucs consistently shot themselves in the foot with horrid turnovers at the goal line and deep in Washington territory. Smith's lone score was a short hookup with Josh Doctson, while Maurice Harris led the team in receiving with a 5-52 day. The 6-3 Skins host the Texans in Week 11.
Nov 11 - 4:18 PM

Redskins RT Morgan Moses (knee) is active for Week 10 against the Bucs.

Washington's line has been turned on its head, but Moses will be in there. Ty Nsekhe will start at left tackle in place of Trent Williams (thumb), with newly-signed LG Jonathan Cooper, C Chase Roullier, and RG Tony Bergstrom making up the interior, though that's certainly written in pencil. Inactive for the Redskins, joining Williams, are RB Chris Thompson, WR Jamison Crowder, CB Quinton Dunbar, LB Zach Vigil, OLB Pernell McPhee, and DL Caleb Brantley.
Nov 11 - 11:34 AM

Jamison Crowder (ankle) is out for Week 10 against the Bucs.

Crowder practiced on Thursday but ultimately won't be ready for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay. The Bucs have been exploited by slot receivers this season, putting Maurice Harris firmly in play with Crowder now officially out. Josh Doctson and Michael Floyd will be in three-wide sets with Harris, but neither are viable options on the outside.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: In Crowder's absence, look for a depleted Redskins offense to rely on Josh Doctson and Maurice Harris most heavily in the passing attack, with Jordan Reed also potentially seeing an uptick in targets due to the limited amount of receiving options. The remaining healthy bodies do have a favorable matchup against a terrible Tampa Bay secondary, so Harris and Doctson make for interesting DFS value plays on the Week 10 slate.
Nov 10 - 1:17 PM

Redskins RT Morgan Moses (concussion) is questionable for Week 10 against the Buccaneers.

Washington was already planning to be without starting guards Brandon Scherff (torn pec, injured reserve) and Shawn Lauvao (torn ACL, injured reserve), as well as starting LT Trent Williams (thumb surgery). Moses' pending absence would leave the Redskins short four starting linemen. Geron Christian Sr. will reportedly fill in at right tackle if Moses can’t go.
Nov 9 - 5:05 PM

Jordan Reed (back) wasn't listed on the Redskins' final injury report for Week 10 against the Buccaneers.

Reed's status for Sunday's game was never in doubt. Tampa Bay's defense has been nonexistent all season, so this is probably as good a matchup as Reed will ever see. The 28-year-old didn't show much during the first half but at a thin fantasy position, he's still in play as a starter in most leagues.
Nov 9 - 3:04 PM

Redskins CB Quinton Dunbar (shin) is questionable for Week 10 against the Bucs.

Coach Jay Gruden also noted that Josh Norman "might travel" to cover Mike Evans. There's a higher probability that defensive strategy happens if Dunbar is available Sunday. His pending return would push Greg Stroman back to the bench.
Nov 9 - 1:53 PM

Jamison Crowder (ankle) is questionable for Week 10 against the Buccaneers.

Crowder resumed practicing on Thursday, though it's unclear if he'll be ready for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay. Maurice Harris would become an interesting DFS play if Crowder can't get the green light.
