Week 15: vs Philadelphia Eagles

All QB vs PHI

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Redskins' passing attack has been horrific all season in 2019, and rookie Dwayne Haskins is not yet able to compensate for the absence of creativity in the team's passing attack along with a lack of pass-catching talent on the outside (aside from Terry McLaurin.) Washington's low-volume passing attack ranks dead-last in the NFL in total yardage, and the 12-to-12 touchdown-to-interception ratio is equally uninspiring. Terry McLaurin has been the lone bright spot for Washington on offense this season. The rookie third-round pick out of Ohio State leads the team in targets, receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns, without anyone on the roster within striking distance of any of his totals. In recent weeks, Kelvin Harmon and Steven Sims have emerged as viable secondary options for Haskins through the air; however, neither has been strong enough to warrant any consideration in fantasy. Washington's mediocre offensive line, which ranks 18th in Matt Bitonti's rankings, has done their rookie quarterback no favors this season, and he will likely continue to struggle down the stretch. Since the return of Jalen Mills, coupled with a softer schedule in recent weeks, Philadelphia's defensive metrics against the pass have improved dramatically. The Eagles still grade as a middle-of-the-pack unit in the NFL, ranking either 17th or 18th in the league in pass attempts defended, total pass yardage allowed, and net yards per attempt allowed. These marks are dramatic improvements from their early-season levels that had them ranked amongst the league's worst pass defenses, but all is not rainbows and sunshine for the Eagles against the pass at this point. Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham shoulder the load for the Eagles in the trenches, as defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz has a clear aversion to sending additional blitzers to help apply pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Cox and Graham have impressed, but they get little support elsewhere, resulting in one of the league's lowest hurry rates. In the secondary, while Malcolm Jenkins, Avante Maddox, and Jalen Mills have been strong in coverage, Ronald Darby has been horrific. In last week's game against the New York Giants, Darby was burnt twice by Darius Slayton for touchdowns, and in the game before that, DeVante Parker made it look easy racking up over 100 receiving yards and multiple scores against Darby. This weekend, Darby will likely line up across from Terry McLaurin for the majority of the afternoon, leaving the Eagles' secondary heavily exposed against one of the league's most promising young receivers. On the whole, Philadelphia's pass defense is a respectable unit that struggles to apply pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Should rookie Dwayne Haskins elect to throw at Ronald Darby, as both Ryan Fitzpatrick and Eli Manning have done frequently and with great success in recent weeks, he could be in for a nice afternoon.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 8 vs MIN (12 / 16 / 130 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Case Keenum had a good start to this game until the untimely turnover.  He led the offense to three first downs and completed his first three passes before giving the ball back to Minnesota.  Case had the Redskins in scoring position twice but only came away with field goals.  Play-action passing, and the run game worked surprisingly well against the Vikings defense.  However, Case only came away with two field goals and exited the game at halftime due to concussion.  Its unfortunate Case went down because this was the best the offense had looked in weeks.

2019 Week 7 vs SF (9 / 12 / 77 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Case Keenum was in extreme game manager mode today with the harsh weather conditions.  Between the heavy rain and Bill Callahan's emphasis to "establish the run" Case only attempted twelve passes on the day.  He didn't even cross the hundred-yard mark as each of his nine completions were within ten yards.  Ball security was even more important in today's game as the weather conditions were extremely sloppy.  Therefore, Case was reluctant to take any chances and the play calling was just as conservative.  He got the Washington offense in scoring position on the opening, but the thirty-nine-yard field goal was missed.   

2019 Week 6 vs MIA (13 / 25 / 166 / 2 / 0 pass, 4 / 10 / 0 rush)

Case Keenum did just well enough to win against the Dolphins.  With the coaching change, came a differing philosophy as the offense went to a more run-oriented unit.  This kept the chance for turnovers to a minimum although Case did have a fumble in this game.  Nonetheless it was recovered by Washington.  Case connected on less than 50% of his attempts today but he did manage to throw two touchdowns.  His 2nd touchdown was the easiest pass he had all day on a streak upfield for thirty-yard touchdown.  Case wasn't sharp at all in this game but playing against a team that is arguable worse than Washington he had room for error.

2019 Week 4 vs NYG (6 / 11 / 37 / 0 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Case Keenum had his worst start to a game this season and it ended with him being replaced. He was wildly inaccurate and continued his bad decision making from the previous game. On the third play of the game he threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown. He also missed Trey Quinn for a potential touchdown on a seam route deep downfield. With a little under 7 minutes left in the second quarter he was replaced by Dwayne Haskins.

2019 Week 2 vs DAL (26 / 37 / 221 / 2 / 0 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)

Case Keenum played a steady game although it resulted in a loss. The offense started slow with a few 3-and-out possessions, but Case finally put together a scoring drive at the end of the first quarter. The touchdown drive was run dominated with eight runs and two passes. To cap off the drive, Case handed the ball off on the goal line and Washington was on the board to start the second quarter. After halftime, Case orchestrated an eleven-play drive that ended with a twelve-yard pass on a hook route where the receiver did most of the work. Case didn't have many possessions to do much damage in the second half, but he did manage one more scoring drive as the game was mostly already decided. The defense struggled to get off the field, so the offense was stalled. Case took care of the ball and made plays, but not enough to get a win.

2019 Week 1 vs PHI (30 / 44 / 380 / 3 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Case Keenum had a perfect start to this game, literally. He demonstrated great command of the offense and established a rhythm to offset the Eagles pressure. The opening drive touchdown pass may have been the result of poor tackling as Case threw a quick out to Vernon Davis. The bad tackling turned into a forty-eight yard touchdown. The most impressive part of Case's first half performance is that they weren't running the ball well. The short passing game opened up a few deep shots as Case connected with Terry McLaurin on a deep post to record his 2nd touchdown of the first half. Case rung up 20 twenty points for the Washington offense in the first half and looked great. The second half was a different story. The Washington offense had only managed ten plays and thirty yards as it got late into the 2nd half. A few three and outs to go along with long drives by the Eagles left Washington on the sidelines a ton. Case managed one late garbage time touchdown but the game had already been decided. Case couldn't capitalize on the minimal opportunities in the second half as the Eagles were rallying. Case did overthrow a potential touchdown in the third quarter that could have been a huge momentum booster if he connects. Nonetheless, the offense was shut down in the second half and Case's solid game was cut short.
