Fantasy Player Projections
FedEx Field | Sunday, October 04 | 1:00 p.m. EST (FOX)
Redskins 16, Buccaneers 13
Pos. Player Projection
QB Josh Johnson
130 pass yards, 2 INTJohnson, a fifth-round pick in the 2008 draft, took his first NFL snap on Sunday against the Giants in relief of Byron Leftwich. It's simply too soon to count on the second-year player for anything substantial in fantasy (or reality, for that matter).
RB Derrick Ward
2 rec, 15 rec yards, 40 rush yards, 1 rush TDWard got the start against the Giants, his former team, but didn't contribute much. Then again, neither did any of his teammates.
RB Carnell Williams
30 rush yardsInadvisable start in light of Sunday's demotion, even against the lowly Redskins.
WR Antonio Bryant
4 rec, 45 yardsBryant is still coping with injury issues but should be good for a handful of catches against the 'Skins.
WR Sammie Stroughter
3 rec, 35 yardsThe good news: Strougher logged a team-high in receiving yards last week. The bad news: He caught two balls for 23 yards. Nothing to see here.
TE Kellen Winslow
3 rec, 30 yardsDon't read too much into Winslow's underperformance against the Giants. He shone in Week 1 and Week 2 and he'll shine against in Week 4.
K Mike Nugent
1 PAT, 2 FGsThe kicker missed a pair of kicks in Week 1 and hasn't attempted a field goal since. So, yeah.
2 sacks, 1 INT, 1 FumbleThere may not be a worse fantasy defense in the game today.
Pos. Player Projection
QB Jason Campbell
255 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 20 rush yards, 1 INTCampbell managed his best fantasy game of the season against the anemic Detroit defense. He benefits from another cupcake against the Bucs in Week 4 but might not be worth a play beyond that.
RB Clinton Portis
2 rec, 15 rec yards, 60 rush yardsClinton Portis missed the final two drives of Sunday's loss to the Lions with an injured calf. Monitor the situation.
WR Santana Moss
8 rec, 120 yardsMoss feasted on the Detroit defense Sunday. Expect more of the same against an opponent of similar ineptitude.
WR Antwaan Randle El
4 rec, 60 yardsOnce Campbell's most favorite target, Washington's ongoing struggles on offense have sapped Randel El of any value.
WR Malcolm Kelly
2 rec, 25 yardsNo thanks. What good is a deep threat if the quarterback can't get him the ball?
TE Chris Cooley
3 rec, 35 yards, 1 TDOne of the league's elite tight ends, Cooley is the Redskins'
de facto WR1 and always worth a start.
K Shaun Suisham
1 PAT, 3 FGsYou can probably do better than a middle-of-the-road option like Suisham.
1 sack, 2 INTOne of the four or five worst fantasy defenses ... but they
are facing a Tampa Bay squad that's starting a greenhorn quarterback on the road.
