It sounds like Kelley is going to play through his rib injury, which puts fantasy owners in a bit of a bind. Kelley had a dismal Week 1 before looking much better last week against the Rams before leaving with the injury. Week 3 does not present the greatest matchup for Kelley, as the Raiders struggle against pass-catching backs but have generally been solid against the run otherwise, not allowing a rusher to surpass 53 yards rushing this season. With the injury concerns, Kelley makes an RB3 here, at best.

I'm not sure he keeps this job. I liked him when I was able to pick him up last year, but he doesn't play any part in the receiving game and I think Washington is going to be looking for a more dynamic player as their RB1.
