Week 5: vs Washington Redskins
All RB vs WAS
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Devonta Freeman has been on a tear through the opposition over the past two weeks, with 30/141/3 rushing and five targets for 5/50/0 receiving at Dallas two weeks ago and then 14/68/3 rushing with six targets for 5/81/0 receiving against the Texans last week. He's the clear-cut featured back in this offense entering Week Five - start him if you've got him.
Washington's defense coughed up 31/84/1 rushing to the Giants on Thursday Night Football two games ago, and then followed up with 18/87/0 allowed to the Eagles last weekend. To date, Washington averages 78.0 yards rushing allowed per game (second in the NFL), with just a single rushing score given up over the first quarter of the season.
Washington has been stalwart in this phase of the game during 2015, but Freeman is too hot to sit down despite a tough rushing matchup coming down the pike.
