Week 6: at Miami Dolphins
FBG says: Great matchup. The Redskins come into this week with a new head coach after firing Jay Gruden, but they remain one of the worst passing offenses in football--ranking 26th in the league with just 212 passing yards per game. Case Keenum was sidelined in Week 5 with a foot injury, which led to a very uninspiring start from journeyman Colt McCoy. While the Patriots defense can make even top quarterbacks look bad, McCoy has done nothing throughout his career to make anyone excited about the prospect of another start in Week 6. Keenum could be back on the field, however, so keep an eye on his practice status. Speaking of back on the field, Terry McLaurin returned from injury last week wand went right back to leading the team in targets and receiving yards as he looks to be nicely recovered. Paul Richardson has been mildly involved, and Vernon Davis remained sidelined with a concussion last week. He is questionable coming into Week 6. Running back Chris Thompson also continued to yield consistent results through the air as he has been targeted more than any other Redskins player and is averaging around five catches with 56 receiving yards per game. The offensive line has been letting the team down in recent weeks though, averaging just over four sacks allowed per game since Week 3--tied for fourth-worst over that three-game span. That is a grim sign for a team that already has quarterback problems. The Dolphins have been bad all around on defense this season. They rank 31st in the league with 296 passing yards allowed per game and are tied for the second-most passing touchdowns allowed (12) despite having already been through their bye week. They also rank last in the league in both sacks (5) and interceptions (1). Cornerback Xavien Howard was supposed to be a bright spot for this secondary, but he has underperformed throughout the season and will not be as scary of a matchup as one might think for Terry McLaurin. Slot cornerback Eric Rowe has also been a big weak spot, giving up nearly three yards per route covered--one of the highest marks in the league at his position. He should make Trey Quinn an interesting option for fantasy purposes this week. While the Redskins offense looks to be in a tough spot right now, whoever ends up under center should not have too difficult of time against this reeling defense.

Recent Game Summaries
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.
Latest NewsRedskins | Case Keenum tosses two TDs (Sun Oct 13, 04:11 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Case Keenum completed 13-of-25 passes for 166 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins. Our View: Keenum's return was big for Terry McLaurin, but otherwise the team did rely more on the run than in previous games, of course helped by a play with the lead game script. He should start against San Francisco in a much tougher matchup next week.
