News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Dec 11): Crowder was feeble in a feeble Washington offense. He probably won't face Patrick Peterson this week, but it's still hard to trust any part of this offense in the fantasy playoffs.
Week 15: vs Arizona Cardinals
FBG says: Tough matchup. Kirk Cousins had his worst game of the season last week as he finished with season lows of 151 yards and a 55.6% completion rate. This was a tough matchup though as the Chargers have been playing very well against the pass. Leading up to that game, Cousins had passed for 220 or more yards in all but one game this season. Cousins ranks fifth in fantasy points among quarterbacks as he has been having a very solid season. Cousins spread the ball around last week as all of his receiving options struggled from a fantasy perspective. Jamison Crowder has been his most reliable option as he had surpassed 65 receiving yards in five straight games leading up to last week's 34-yard outing. Vernon Davis contributed for the first time in a couple weeks as he led the team in targets and scored the only Redskins receiving touchdown, his second of the season. Davis had not been a big part of the game plan in the previous two weeks, but he was a big focus of Cousins' last week and was even targeted on a few deep balls that barely missed. The Cardinals looked good against a struggling Titans offense last week. This secondary has been playing much better in recent weeks and has been one of the most consistent playmaking units in the league. Despite only 13 interceptions on the season, the Cardinals have at least one interception in all but two games this season. Patrick Peterson has been a shut-down cornerback for most of the season and should match up on Jamison Crowder since he is the top target for the Redskins. Tramon Williams on the other side has had his challenges this season, but he had an amazing game last week allowing just three receptions with one broken up pass and an interception. While Cousins may put up some yards, his upside should be limited in this matchup.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 14 vs LAC (6 / 3 / 34 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder tallied three catches for thirty-four yards but wasn't a heavy contributor. He has been highly productive the last few weeks but in this game he was held in check. His longest reception went for eighteen yards but the splash plays were nonexistent for Jamison today.
2017 Week 13 vs DAL (7 / 5 / 67 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder was tied for the most receptions in this game. He biggest play came on a reception he took thirty-three yards up field as he bailed out Kirk Cousins. He was relatively quiet in this game as Washington's offense was stagnant majority of the evening. Jamison was still heavily targeted which illustrates his importance moving forward.
2017 Week 12 vs NYG (10 / 7 / 141 / 1 rec)
Jamison Crowder has become the focal point of the passing game late in the season. He led Washington in receptions and yardage for the second consecutive game. He had a quiet first half versus the Giants, but in the third quarter he started to heat up and beat coverage repeatedly for chunk gains. His longest reception went for thirty-eight yards. He also had one of the two touchdowns scored in this game for Washington. The touchdown was a fifteen-yard reception of the middle of the field in which he beat zone coverage. Jamison's ability to gain separation in coverage made it comfortable for Kirk to find him. Jamison also had a clutch reception late in the fourth quarter that help set him the game winning touchdown. As it becomes clearer each game that Jordan Reed isn't coming back, Crowder has taken on a prominent role in the Washington passing game.
2017 Week 11 vs NO (8 / 7 / 72 / 0 rec, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)
Jamison Crowder led the team in receptions with seven against the Saints. Often running safety valve type routes, Jamison was able to get open and quickly get up field after the catch. Jamison became even more important in the passing game when Chris Thompson went down. His longest catch went for nineteen yards and Kirk leaned on him heavily in the fourth quarter. Jamison has come alive in the last few weeks and Kirk has reestablished their connection. Jamison's role should grow even more moving forward if Jordan Reed doesn't return soon.
2017 Week 10 vs MIN (11 / 4 / 76 / 0 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
Jamison Crowder looks to be hitting his stride in the 2nd half of the season. Coming off injury, he continued his strong play as he paced the Redskins receivers in reception yards. He only had four receptions but his big play ability after the catch seems to be back. Washington has made more of an effort to get him involved with Jordan Reed unavailable. Jamison hasn't had to worry about Jordan soaking up targets over the middle of the field lately. He had a thirty-six yard reception which was his longest reception and demonstrated his sudden burst as he gained separation at the top of his route. Jamison was targeted an additional two times but his production and activity level is trending up. This was a tough matchup and he still found way to be a factor. That is an encouraging sign going into the 2nd half of the season.
2017 Week 8 vs DAL (13 / 9 / 123 / 0 rec, 2 / 12 / 0 rush)
Jamison Crowder finally had a breakout game as he led the team with nine catches and over one hundred yards receiving. His longest play went for forty-one yards on a catch and run demonstrating his 'YAC' ability. Being able to get open quickly for short passes in a rain storm was very valuable for him and Kirk as there wasn't much time to go downfield. Hopefully this is the start to a great second half for him as he has been underwhelming the majority of this year. Now that Jordan Reed is out he may become a bigger part of the passing game.
2017 Week 7 vs PHI (6 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)
Jamison Crowder is still struggling to get going in this offense. Jamison's night started off fast as he caught a twenty yard reception, but he only recorded one more reception following his fast start. It seems as if Vernon Davis has taken some of his looks over the middle of the field where Jamison mainly operates. His role has clearly took a step back this year.
2017 Week 6 vs SF (5 / 3 / 15 / 0 rec, 1 / 11 / 0 rush)
Jamison Crowder put up another silent game as he tries to work himself back into form. It was believed that he should be healthy coming out of the bye and ready to roll but he was still unable to get on track. Gruden says that he wants to get Jamison more involved but that didn't happen today. It is a major concern that Jamison was ineffective this game considering how suspect the 49ers' secondary has been all season. He only had three receptions for fifteen yards. He was often single covered but Kirk didn't target Jamison much at all in this game.
2017 Week 3 vs OAK (6 / 6 / 52 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder was more involved in this game as he recorded six catches. He didn't accumulate much yardage but he looked healthy and didn't rotate out of the game often. Crowder's biggest play of the day was a thirty yard pass in which he was able to use his supreme after the catch ability to get down field. His health is trending up and it is a positive sign to see him involved in the passing game more often this week.
2017 Week 2 vs LAR (5 / 4 / 47 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder benefitted from a ball control offense that highlighted a short passing game. He had four receptions and looked a little healthier this week. He also played more snaps and had a twenty one yard reception that showed the extreme quickness he brings to Washington's offense. As he gets healthier he should continue to be a bigger part of this offensive attack.
2017 Week 1 vs PHI (7 / 3 / 14 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder was hampered by a hip injury and that might explain his three-reception day. He also had a fumble which compounded his quiet game. He was in and out of the lineup throughout the game which showed his isn't fully healthy. Kirk threw an awful interception off his back foot looking for Jamison in the end zone. The ball sailed over his head and he had no chance at making a play on the ball. Jamison's entire game is built on quickness and change of direction in the slot. It will be interesting to see how effective he can be moving forward.
