Week 13: vs Washington Redskins
All TE vs WAS
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Carson Palmer is throwing the ball well, but his wide receivers are dropping routine balls and not helping out their quarterback enough. Last week, Palmer threw 25/45 for 289 yards, two TDs and one interception with two sacks taken for -15 yards, but it was up to running back David Johnson to lead the team in receiving with 11 targets for 8/103/1 receiving. Tight end Jermaine Gresham continued his late-season surge with 10 targets for 5/35/1 receiving, while Larry Fitzgerald was second on the squad with four targets for 4/53/0 receiving. John Brown (two for 1/19/0) tweaked his troublesome hamstring (again) and exited the game, while Michael Floyd (five for 2/31/0) and J.J. Nelson (four for 2/30/0) mixed drops with a few catches. Arizona has an issue at wide receiver right now, aside from the ultra-reliable Fitzgerald. Brown (hamstring) will see multiple specialists this week due to the sickle-cell trait continuously causing his legs to tighten. 'That's the one that's so baffling,' head coach Bruce Arians said on Wednesday, November 30. 'It's not really a pull. Whatever the blood issue he has the legs tighten up.'
The Washington pass defense wasn't challenged by the Dallas passing attack very often last weekend (17/24 for 190 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown, with one sack taken for -5 yards) as the Cowboys' runners piled up 30/163/3 during the contest. Two weeks ago the Washington pass defense surrendered 27/44 for 340 net yards passing, three TDs and one interception with two sacks for -20 yards to the Packers' quarterbacks. From Week Nine to Week 12 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 14 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), Washington has averaged 26.1 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (fourth-most in the NFL); and 25.1 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (11th-most); with 12.1 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (most in the league during that time span).
The Cardinals have another inviting passing matchup this week - will Palmer and company be able to take advantage of the situation?
