Week 11: vs New York Jets
FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Washington Redskins have officially committed to rookie Dwayne Haskins as their starting quarterback for the remainder of the 2019 campaign. This announcement came during the team's bye week, following a brutal 1-8 start to the season. In limited action this year, Haskins has been significantly worse under center than either Case Keenum or Colt McCoy, but this is a decision made with one eye on the future. In the short-term, Washington's already horrific passing attack is poised to struggle with Haskins at the helm. Through his first 44 pass attempts of his career, Haskins has 0 touchdowns, 4 interceptions, and has posted a measly 2.4 adjusted yards per attempt. Terry McLaurin remains the team's number-one target moving forward, as his dominance in Washington's passing attack cannot be understated. McLaurin was also a collegiate teammate of Haskins last season at Ohio State, whom Haskins specifically requested the Redskins draft alongside him. Paul Richardson is the team's next-best receiving option, but the volume and quality of targets available aside from McLaurin are uninspiring. Washington's offensive line ranks amongst the league's worst, which will not bode well for a young and developing quarterback this weekend in a typically run-heavy offensive attack. The New York Jets' pass defense faces a remarkably-high number of pass attempts, in large part thanks to the team's impressive run defense, and their efficiency numbers against the pass are respectable overall. The Jets' pass-rush is an average unit overall, headlined by an emerging Jordan Jenkins with five sacks on the edge. At linebacker, C.J. Mosely is going to miss week 11's game due to a groin injury. In his place, James Burgess has started at linebacker. Burgess is a horrific pass defender, and teams have exploited this over the middle in recent weeks with Mike Gesicki and Rhett Ellison, two underwhelming fantasy producers, to post 15.5 and 7.2 PPR points, respectively. The Jets' secondary has been a strength of this team, with Marcus Maye, Jamal Adams, and Brian Poole leading an impressive unit, but recent injuries have left the unit exposed elsewhere. Trumaine Johnson made his way to the IR two weeks ago, and Darryl Roberts' status is in question this weekend due to a calf injury. In his place, expect either Arthur Maulet or Blessuan Austin, both of whom are inexperienced and uninspiring reserves, to enter the starting lineup at cornerback. Last weekend, Daniel Jones carved up the Jets for 300 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions in a shockingly-strong performance by the rookie. This weekend, another rookie, Dwayne Haskins, will need to exploit these few relative weaknesses in the Jets' defense if he has any hopes of success with the odds stacked against him here in week 11.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 4 vs NYG (4 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis was targeted four times in this game but only managed one catch for five yards. Case missed him for a touchdown in the redzone that would have made his final stat line a little more pleasing. He was held in check for the third consecutive week.
2019 Week 2 vs DAL (4 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis recorded three catches on four targets against Dallas. However, all his targets were in short areas so the impact for him was minimal. Vernon hasn't seen many opportunities up the seams as a vertical threat taking advantage of his speed. He will likely fall back into his backup role next week with Jordan Reed returning.
2019 Week 1 vs PHI (7 / 4 / 59 / 1 rec)
Vernon Davis showed that he can still be a playmaker for Washington. He cashed in on Washington's first touchdown of the day scampering for almost fifty yards. He still has speed in the open field as he broke a few tackles before outrunning the Eagles secondary. With Jordan Reed being out, he caught four receptions on seven targets. He didn't do much beyond the long touchdown but Vernon is still a solidified playmaker.
