Washington has a very quarterback-friendly defense, as they allow the third-most points to opposing fantasy quarterbacks this season. Quarterback Josh McCown is coming off a solid performance where he totaled over 20 points and could have another good fantasy week this Sunday. The veteran quarterback makes plays with his legs and that goes a long way as far as fantasy is concerned. If you need a fill-in quarterback this week Josh McCown has a high ceiling.
Mike Evans has been fantastic over the last two weeks. The rookie has totaled 14 catches for 249 yards and three touchdowns in the last two games and has been one of fantasy’s best producers. Washington has an average pass defense, which means that Evans has another really good chance to put up big numbers. Evans is a must-start fantasy option moving forward.
Evans has garnered a lot of attention lately but running mate Vincent Jackson has been solid over the last few weeks. Jackson has had 75 and 86 yard performances in the last two weeks and has been targeted a whopping 25 times. It’s only a matter of time that he gets in the endzone with target numbers like that. Start Jackson as a low WR2 this week against the Redskins.
The Buccaneers running back situation is a fantasy black hole at the moment. The coaching staff has been spreading out the touches, limiting upside for all of the Buccaneers’ running backs. Most expect rookie Charles Sims to get more touches down the stretch, but for now he’s not worth starting. Bobby Rainey managed just six carries for 14 yards against a porous Atlanta run defense last week. Fantasy owners would be wise to sit all of the Buccaneers’ backs this week.
The Redskins haven’t been able to lock down opposing tight ends this year, allowing the ninth-most fantasy points to tight ends. Rookie Austin Seferian-Jenkins posted career highs in catches (5) and targets (9) and even caught a touchdown last week against Atlanta. The rookie was a big part of the offense last week and look for that trend to continue. That being said, he’s just a backup fantasy tight end at the moment.
