Washington Redskins
vs
San Diego Chargers
FedEX Field | Sunday, Nov. 03 | 1 PM EST (CBS)

San Diego Chargers

    1. Philip Rivers
    2. Philip
      Rivers
      QB
    3. PASS YDS342
    4. PASS TD3
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    The Redskins have been dreadful against the pass, surrendering the fourth-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. Get Rivers active.

    1. Ryan Mathews
    2. Ryan
      Mathews
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS81
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS36
    6. REC TD1

    Washington has been terrible defensively this year, allowing the third most fantasy points per game to running backs. You have to start Mathews if you own him.

    1. Danny Woodhead
    2. Danny
      Woodhead
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS24
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS53
    6. REC TD0

    Woodhead is a solid play due to Washington's defensive struggles, but I think he'll be the one guy left out of the fun this week.

    1. Keenan Allen
    2. Keenan
      Allen
      WR
    3. REC YDS104
    4. REC TD1

    Allen should be able to take advantage of a Washington defense that has allowed 8.4 YPA and 15 passing touchdowns this season.

    1. Vincent Brown
    2. Vincent
      Brown
      WR
    3. REC YDS63
    4. REC TD1

    There should be plenty of points to go around in this game. Brown is a WR3 this week.

    1. Antonio Gates
    2. Antonio
      Gates
      TE
    3. REC YDS68
    4. REC TD0

    You're starting Gates no matter what, but there's reason for optimism this week. Washington has allowed the 11th-most fantasy points per game to tight ends.

    1. Nick Novak
    2. Nick
      Novak
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG2

    In what likely will be a high-scoring affair, Novak could be in for a big day.

    1. San Diego Chargers
    2. PTS ALLOWED30
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    The Chargers have allowed the sixth most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season. Despite Robert Griffin III's struggles last week, I don't like the Chargers' chances against him.

Washington Redskins

    1. Robert Griffin III
    2. Robert
      Griffin III
      QB
    3. PASS YDS312
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS67
    7. RUSH TD1

    He struggled against the Broncos last week, but the Chargers have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. Start him.

    1. Alfred Morris
    2. Alfred
      Morris
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS97
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS11
    6. REC TD0

    Lost amid the disappointing season in Washington is the great campaign from Morris. He has 565 yards on 108 attempts, good for an average of 5.2 YPC.

    1. Roy Helu
    2. Roy
      Helu
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS26
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS8
    6. REC TD0

    Last week showed why you can't fall in love with a situational guy after a big game. I predict he'll be a non-factor again, but roll with him if you must.

    1. Pierre Garcon
    2. Pierre
      Garcon
      WR
    3. REC YDS94
    4. REC TD1

    Garcon didn't take advantage of a great matchup last week, but he gets an immediate chance to redeem himself. The Chargers allow the fifth most fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. Leonard Hankerson
    2. Leonard
      Hankerson
      WR
    3. REC YDS48
    4. REC TD0

    If you're struggling to find a receiver this week because of all the byes, consider Hankerson. The Chargers are generous to receivers.

    1. Santana Moss
    2. Santana
      Moss
      WR
    3. REC YDS41
    4. REC TD0

    Although the Chargers surrender the fifth-most fantasy points per game to receivers, you should be able to do better than Moss.

    1. Jordan Reed
    2. Jordan
      Reed
      TE
    3. REC YDS82
    4. REC TD0

    Reed had another strong game last week, catching eight passes for 90 yards. You should be starting him every week.

    1. Kai Forbath
    2. Kai
      Forbath
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG3

    This game should push up into the 30s. That's good news for Forbath.

    1. Washington Redskins
    2. PTS ALLOWED27
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    Washington cannot stop anyone on defense. It won't change this week.
