News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 20): Marshall is likely to take over the receiving back role with Chris Thompson out for the season and he could have some desperation play value.

General News (Tue Nov 21): is expected to take over Chris Thompson's third-down role in Washington's offense. Marshall was signed off the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad just last week, but he does have experience as a receiver.

Week 12: vs New York Giants

All RB vs NYG

FBG says: Good matchup. The Redskins rushing attack has been severely hindered by injuries as they lost Chris Thompson and Rob Kelley in consecutive weeks leaving only Samaje Perine as their only running back who has seen significant carries this season. Perine was a volume workhorse last week as he had 23 carries for 117 yards and a touchdown. The Redskins did make a move to sign Byron Marshall who is a pass receiving back to fill the Thompson departure. Coach Jay Gruden said that Marshall is going to not have much of a choice when it comes to handling the role and even though he only saw three offensive snaps last week it sounds like this could be a spot where that will grow significantly this upcoming week. The Giants run defense is one in which they are incredibly strong up the middle with Damon "Snacks" Harrison and rookie Dalvin Tomlinson leading the way. Outside of this, the rest of the defense has struggled as the linebacking group has been one of the worst in the NFL. B.J. Goodson is expected to be back in the lineup after newly signed Kelvin Sheppard injured himself in the first game he played this season due to a groin issue. This is a defense that is averaging 107 yards per game to opposing running backs on the season, but over the last four weeks is averaging 120 yards per game allowed. This could setup well for Byron Marshall to run outside or Jamison Crowder as the Redskins have been handing the ball off to him about two times per game on sweep plays. Up the middle could cause some issues for Perine who is a very physical runner.

Redskins | Byron Marshall will assume passing role (Tue Nov 21, 03:17 PM) - Washington Redskins RB Byron Marshall is expected to take over RB Chris Thompson's third-down role in Washington's offense.

Our View: It's a gut punch for fantasy owners to lose Thompson, but Marshall should be on plenty of waiver wires out there. Marshall was signed off the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad just last week, but he does have experience as a receiver...most from his college days at Oregon. During the Ducks title run in 2014, Marshall had eight receptions for 169 yards and one touchdown in the championship game.

Redskins | Byron Marshall plucked from Philadelphia (Tue Nov 14, 12:27 PM) - The Washington Redskins signed RB Byron Marshall off of the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad and added him to the active roster Tuesday, Nov. 14.

Our View: Marshall was picked up by the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Oregon in 2016. He appeared in three games for the Eagles last year and found his way back to the team's practice squad in 2017. Washington had worked out free agent backs like Ronnie Hillman and Daryl Richardson due to the injury to starter Rob Kelley.
