WR Santana Moss - Washington Redskins
|5-9, 185||Born: 6-1-1979||College: Miami||Drafted: Round 1, pick 16|
Week 16: vs Philadelphia Eagles
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Kirk Cousins started for Washington back in Week Three - this week it looks like Robert Griffin III is going to go, so looking back in time won't inform us much regarding Griffin's prospects in this game. Griffin has been in and out of the lineup this year - when in, he's posted 104/150 for 1,138 yards, three TDs and three interceptions thrown, with 27/146/0 rushing to his credit over seven appearances. Last week in New York Andre Roberts (four targets for 2/81/0 receiving), Silas Redd (three for 3/62/0) and Pierre Garcon (seven for 4/36/0) led the team in receiving - running back Chris Thompson (four for 3/22/1) handled the lone TD of the day from Griffin. Not exactly a set of household words in fantasy circles, are they? We'll see who Griffin relies on here in Week 16 with a week of preparation with the first team. The Eagles' pass D is awfully putrid, ranking 28th in the NFL averaging 257.4 net passing yards allowed per game, with 29 passing scores given out vs. 10 interceptions (23rd in the NFL) and despite an impressive 47 sacks recorded (second in the NFL). The secondary simply doesn't play well for the Eagles, and that's that. Dez Bryant deconstructed them with eight targets for 6/114/3 receiving last week, as Tony Romo threw 22/31 for 249 net yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions thrown while taking three sacks for -16 yards. Advantage, Washington.

Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 13 vs IND (3 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
Santana Moss came into the game when DeSean Jackson left in the second half with a bad leg injury. He caught his three targets all in garbage time with Washington trailing by 22 points in hurry-up mode. They were his first targets all year.
2014 Week 14 vs STL (5 / 3 / 43 / 0 rec)
Santana Moss stepped into the starting lineup in place of the injured DeSean Jackson and looked spry for an aging veteran. Moss still is a savvy route runner and has short area quickness even if he isn't challenging very deep. His 43 yards were second on the team behind Pierre Garcon.
2014 Week 15 vs NYG (1 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)
Santana Moss was not able to make much of an impact in the game, catching his lone target for 18 yards before getting ejected from the game cursing out a referee for the dubious overturning of RG3's TD run to end the first half.
