The Washington Football Team is placing Pro Bowl RG Brandon Scherff on IR. (Source: ProFootballTalk on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Scherff was injured Sunday against the Cardinals and was diagnosed with an MCL sprain. He could be available again as early as Washington's Week 6 game against the New York Giants. This could be an issue for fantasy owners who were excited about Antonio Gibson moving forward, but he remains a flex option with RB2 upside.

Washington declared Bryce Love a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Love was once considered a fantasy sleeper after The Football Teams' surprise release of Adrian Peterson. After being inactive for Week 1 and a healthy scratch for Week 2, it's safe to say that Love should not be rostered in any formats at this time.

Dustin Hopkins made his only field goal attempt on Sunday, a 24-yarder.

Fantasy Impact: Hopkins is a solid kicker in his own right, but with a struggling offense in Washington, it's hard to determine how consistent he can be moving forward. Fantasy owners should look elsewhere for a weekly kicker if possible.

Washington RB J.D. McKissic carried the ball 8 times for 53 yards but received zero targets in the passing game on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: McKissic, mostly known for his receiving work, had a solid share of the backfield touches versus Arizona. He shouldn't be on the fantasy radar just yet, but his usage should be monitored moving forward.

Washington running back Peyton Barber carried the ball just one time for one yard in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals and was not targeted in the passing game.

Fantasy Impact: After seeing 17 carries and scoring two touchdowns in Week 1, this is a pretty far fall in terms of production. He appears to be a short-yardage runner and nothing more right now in Washington, limiting his fantasy value.

Category: Game Recaps


Washington running back Antonio Gibson rushed 13 times for 55 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for negative yardage in the team's Week 2 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Gibson is now the guy in the Washington backfield, though J.D. McKissic did see eight carries on Sunday. Through two games, Gibson has rushed 22 times for 91 yards while catching three passes for five yards, and his workload should only increase as the season goes on.

Washington wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught seven of his 10 targets for 125 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals in Arizona on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: McLaurin is easily Washington's best player on offense, and he should continue to see double-digit targets on a regular basis. Through two games, he has caught 12 passes for 186 yards and a touchdown. In Week 3, Washington takes on the Browns and a bad Cleveland defense on the road.

Logan Thomas caught four of nine targets for 26 yards against the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Although Thomas wasn't very productive with his opportunities, it's an encouraging sign that his QB is looking for him frequently. Thomas has 17 targets in two games and if he can improve his efficiency could become a viable fantasy starter at TE.

Dontrelle Inman caught 2 passes on 5 targets for 17 yards against the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Inman played on 68% of The Football Teams' snaps but remains the WR3 on a young and inefficient offense.

Category: Game Recaps


Antonio Gandy-Golden caught his first NFL pass this Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. It went for three yards.

Fantasy Impact: Gandy-Golden is a promising alebit raw talent with a massive frame (6'4" 223 lb) but shouldn't be rostered at this point except in deeper leagues or dynasty formats as a bench-stash.

Washington quarterback Dwayne Haskins completed 19 of his 33 pass attempts for 223 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. He also added eight yards rushing.

Fantasy Impact: Haskins has yet to throw an interception this season, but he has also only thrown for 401 yards through the first two weeks. Unless the Washington offense opens things up a bit more in the coming weeks, Haskins remains a low-end option in formats that start two quarterbacks.

The Washington Football Team D/ST gave up 30 points on Sunday in an underwhelming performance in Arizona, recording three sacks and intercepting one pass while allowing 438 total yards.

Fantasy Impact: Coming off of a promising effort against the Eagles that saw Washington's defensive line dominate on their way to eight sacks, there was a reason for optimism. However, The Football Team had no answer for Kyler Murray this Sunday as he rushed for 67 yards and two touchdowns and added another score through the air. The Washington Football Team D/ST is set to take on the Browns in Cleveland next week.

Fantasy Impact: The Football Team expects Fuller to be back by Week 3, but his absence should help Kyler Murray to have a good week as Washington will miss one of their top defensive backs.

Alex Smith will not play in Sunday's game against the Eagles. (Source: Michael Fabiano on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Smith has made a remarkable and miraculous recovery from the gruesome leg injury he suffered a couple of years ago. While he has been approved for practices and made the active roster, he will not see any action Week 1. Dwayne Haskins will draw the start against Philadelphia but Smith will likely be activated as the second-string backup before the year is over.

Thomas Davis Sr. will not play in Sunday's matchup against the Eagles. (Source: John Keim on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Davis is dealing with a calf injury and the newly signed 37-year-old will hope to get the start at linebacker next week. On a team with no real standout linebackers, he could end up leading the team in tackles by year's end.

Washington Football Team wide receiver Kelvin Harmon was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list Sunday, the team announced. (Source: WashingtonFootball.com)

Fantasy Impact: Harmon tore his ACL in July and will miss the 2020 season. As a rookie in 2019, Harmon caught 30 of his 44 targets for 365 yards.

Wide receiver Trey Quinn has been waived by the Washington Football Team ahead of Saturday's 4 pm deadline, according to ESPN's John Keim. (Source: John Keim on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Quinn played in 12 games and caught 26 passes for 198 yards and one touchdown in 2019. With a new coaching staff in Washington, they are deciding to go in a different direction. Quinn is likely to catch on with another team but has no fantasy value outside of dynasty formats with deep rosters.

The Washington Football Team has decided to release future Hall of Fame running back Adrian Peterson. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This surprising move comes just days after head coach Ron Rivera said that Peterson would be receiving early-down work. At 35 years old, this could be the end of a legendary career for the former first-round pick.

Washington DT Jonathan Allen had to be helped off the field during practice Sunday after what appeared to be a left knee injury. (Source: Rhiannon Walker on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Allen was rolling around the turf holding his left knee prior to needing assistance getting off the field. He was taken to the sidelines for further examination. More to come on his injury status as the Washington Football Team learns more.
