Quinton Dunbar
Quinton Dunbar dealing with shin injury

Redskins RCB Quinton Dunbar is dealing with a shin injury.
Analysis: Dunbar is visiting the doctor on Monday. He's apparently dealing with a nerve issue. Dunbar played all 60 snaps in Week 6 before missing Week 8.
Vernon Davis
Vernon Davis gets blanked versus Cowboys
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 8:13 PM
Vernon Davis failed to record a single target in Washington's Week 7 win over the Cowboys.
Analysis: Odd. Even without Jamison Crowder and Paul Richardson Sunday, Davis didn't even see one target. Jordan Reed tied backup RB Kapri Bibbs with a team-high 43 receiving yards. Davis will undoubtedly pop if Reed misses time, but should remain on waivers until that day comes.
Maurice Harris
Maurice Harris hauls in all three targets Sun
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 8:10 PM
Maurice Harris secured all three of his targets for 22 yards in Washington's Week 7 win over Dallas.
Analysis: It was the third consecutive game Harris has started, but he's done very little with the added opportunity. He has just 82 yards receiving over Washington's last three games.
Josh Doctson
Josh Doctson catches 3-of-6 targets vs Dallas
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 8:06 PM
Josh Doctson hauled in 3-of-6 targets for 42 yards in Washington's Week 7 victory over the Cowboys.
Analysis: His 42 yards were a season-high, but it doesn't make him any more fantasy relevant than he was prior to kick-off. Doctson is a candidate to fade away completely once Jamison Crowder and Paul Richardson return.
Jordan Reed
Jordan Reed posts team-high 43 receiving yds
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 8:05 PM
Jordan Reed caught 2-of-4 targets for 43 yards in the Redskins' Week 7 win over the Cowboys.
Analysis: The good news is Reed's 43 yards were a team-high. The bad news is Reed's 43 yards were a team-high. It's easy to say he's a TE1 based on past performance, but that feeling is beginning to waiver with his third consecutive game under 50 yards. He also has yet to eclipse 70 yards in a single outing this season. His usage remains that of a TE1, so owners are still advised to hang tight and hope to weather the storm.
Alex Smith
Alex Smith escapes with concise outing vs DAL
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 7:58 PM
Alex Smith completed 14-of-25 passes for 178 yards and one touchdown in Washington's Week 7 win over the Cowboys.
Analysis: In vintage Smith fashion, his only score on the day came on a 23-yard screen pass to change-of-pace back Kapri Bibbs. No receiver topped 43 yards for Washington. Dallas' secondary admittedly presents a tough matchup, but it is the second straight week Smith's failed to exceed 175 passing yards. Given the club's run-first grind-it-out style of play, Smith should only be used in terrific matchups on paper -- like the one the Redskins face in Week 8 against the Giants.
Kapri Bibbs
Kapri Bibbs leads Skins with 4/43/1 receiving
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 7:47 PM
Kapri Bibbs rushed two times for 16 yards, adding four catches for 43 yards and one touchdown through the air in the Redskins' Week 7 win over the Cowboys.
Analysis: Without Chris Thompson for the second straight week, Bibbs again stepped in as Wsahington's No. 2 change-of-pace back. He showed his worth on Washington's first drive when he stretched a screen in the flats into a 23-yard touchdown scamper. His 43 receiving yards tied Jordan Reed's for the team lead. Bibbs has been out-carried by Adrian Peterson 41-4 over the last two games, though, and would need more consistent usage to be deemed a potential streamer moving forward. He's worthy of stashing in the event both Peterson and Thompson are ruled out later on.
Adrian Peterson
Peterson (24/99) falls one-yard short of 100
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 7:36 PM
Adrian Peterson handled a team-high 24 carries for 99 yards in Washington's Week 7 victory over the Cowboys.
Analysis: Peterson again led Washington's backfield in carries by a healthy margin without Chris Thompson available for the second consecutive week. All Day out-carried third-down back Kapri Bibbs 24-2 on Sunday, now having out-carried the latter 41-4 in the Redskins' last two games. He's bulldozed his way to 196 yards (4.78 YPC) in that span, too. If Thompson remains out in Week 8 against the Giants, Peterson will again be a clear-cut usage-based RB2.
Paul Richardson
Richardson, Crowder, Thompson inactive Sunday
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 2:13 PM
Redskins declare WR Paul Richardson, CB Quinton Dunbar, WR Jamison Crowder, RB Chris Thompson, S Troy Apke, OL Geron Christian and C Casey Dunn inactive for Week 7 against the Cowboys.
Analysis: The Redskins will be extremely thin at wideout Sunday and will be forced to start Josh Doctson, Maurice Harris, and Michael Floyd in three-wide sets. Brian Quick will mix in as depth. Without Thompson available, third-down back Kapri Bibbs will play behind Adrian Peterson (who initially came into Sunday questionable, too). Expect more multiple tight end sets from Washington's offense.
Adrian Peterson
Adrian Peterson expected to go Sunday

Ian Rapoport on Twitter
Adrian Peterson (questionable, ankle/shoulder) is expected to play against the Cowboys in Week 7.
Chris Thompson
Chris Thompson (ribs, knee) expected to sit

Adam Schefter on Twitter
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Chris Thompson (ribs, knee) is not expected to play Week 7 against the Cowboys.
Analysis: It is the second week in a row Thompson has practiced all week but sat out the game. Kapri Bibbs should once again fill in as the change-of-pace option, but he saw just three touches last week on 37 percent of the snaps. If anything, Thompson sitting locks Adrian Peterson in as a solid RB2.
Chris Thompson
Chris Thompson (ribs) questionable vs Dallas
Fri, Oct 19, 2018, 12:52 PM
Chris Thompson (ribs) is questionable for Week 7 against Dallas.
Analysis: Thompson looks on track to return after sitting last week. His status may not be known until game-time, so owners need to have backup plans in place. Thompson will be an RB3/FLEX is he plays.
Paul Richardson
Richardson draws doubtful tag for Week 7
Fri, Oct 19, 2018, 12:52 PM
Washington Redskins on Twitter
Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) is doubtful for Week 7 against the Cowboys.
Analysis: Richardson went to the doctor to have his knee re-evauated on Thursday and it doesn't sound like he got good news. With Jamison Crowder (ankle) already ruled out and P-Rich likely to follow suit, look for the Redskins to roll with Josh Doctson, Maurice Harris and Brian Quick in three-wide sets against Dallas.
Jamison Crowder
Jamison Crowder a no go against Dallas

Washington Redskins on Twitter
Jamison Crowder (ankle) is out for Week 7 against the Cowboys.
Adrian Peterson
Adrian Peterson listed questionable
Fri, Oct 19, 2018, 12:49 PM
Adrian Peterson (ankle, shoulder) is questionable for Week 7 against the Cowboys.
Analysis: The Redskins managed Peterson's reps this week but he's expected to play. Peterson is an RB2 for Sunday's matchup with Dallas.
Paul Richardson
Paul Richardson had knee examined Thursday
Thu, Oct 18, 2018, 4:07 PM
Matthew Paras on Twitter
Paul Richardson had his ailing knee re-examined on Thursday.
Analysis: If there's good news, it's that an MRI was not required. "We're trying to get to the bottom of it," coach Jay Gruden said. "We're being extra cautious right now." Richardson's Week 7 availability appears genuinely up in the air. The Redskins promoted WR Jehu Chesson from the practice squad on Thursday.
Jehu Chesson
Redskins promote WR Jehu Chesson
Thu, Oct 18, 2018, 4:05 PM
Redskins promoted WR Jehu Chesson from the practice squad.
Analysis: It speaks to concern over Paul Richardson's (knee, shoulder) status. A fourth-round pick of the Chiefs last season, Chesson has two career grabs.
Adrian Peterson
Peterson (ankle, shoulder) back at practice
Thu, Oct 18, 2018, 3:44 PM
Calvin Watkins on Twitter
Adrian Peterson (ankle, shoulder) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.
Analysis: Peterson was absent on Wednesday, though it seems like he was just getting a maintenance day. Peterson said he feels much better than he did a week ago, calling the difference "night and day." AD will be on the RB2 map Sunday when the Redskins host Dallas.
Chris Thompson
Chris Thompson practicing again Thursday
Thu, Oct 18, 2018, 12:20 PM
John Keim on Twitter
Chris Thompson (ribs) practiced again on Thursday.
Analysis: Thompson will be slapped with another "limited" tag. Thompson practiced last week before sitting out against the Panthers. There's a good chance Thompson returns against the Cowboys, but he could end up a game-time decision.
Paul Richardson
Paul Richardson misses another practice
Thu, Oct 18, 2018, 12:17 PM
John Keim on Twitter
Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) remained sidelined on Thursday.
Analysis: This is actually the routine Richardson followed last week before suiting up against the Panthers. As of Thursday, we have not seen evidence that his status is in doubt against the Cowboys.
