Week 15: vs Arizona Cardinals
FBG says: Tough matchup. Kirk Cousins had his worst game of the season last week as he finished with season lows of 151 yards and a 55.6% completion rate. This was a tough matchup though as the Chargers have been playing very well against the pass. Leading up to that game, Cousins had passed for 220 or more yards in all but one game this season. Cousins ranks fifth in fantasy points among quarterbacks as he has been having a very solid season. Cousins spread the ball around last week as all of his receiving options struggled from a fantasy perspective. Jamison Crowder has been his most reliable option as he had surpassed 65 receiving yards in five straight games leading up to last week's 34-yard outing. Vernon Davis contributed for the first time in a couple weeks as he led the team in targets and scored the only Redskins receiving touchdown, his second of the season. Davis had not been a big part of the game plan in the previous two weeks, but he was a big focus of Cousins' last week and was even targeted on a few deep balls that barely missed. The Cardinals looked good against a struggling Titans offense last week. This secondary has been playing much better in recent weeks and has been one of the most consistent playmaking units in the league. Despite only 13 interceptions on the season, the Cardinals have at least one interception in all but two games this season. Patrick Peterson has been a shut-down cornerback for most of the season and should match up on Jamison Crowder since he is the top target for the Redskins. Tramon Williams on the other side has had his challenges this season, but he had an amazing game last week allowing just three receptions with one broken up pass and an interception. While Cousins may put up some yards, his upside should be limited in this matchup.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 8 vs DAL (1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed got hurt early in this game and was forced to sit. He pulled a hamstring and was unable to contribute.
2017 Week 7 vs PHI (10 / 8 / 64 / 2 rec)
Jordan Reed had his most productive game of the season as he recorded eight receptions and two touchdowns. Both of his touchdowns came in the red zone as Kirk found him over the middle of the field on slant plays. Many of his catches came in the short pass variety but it was encouraging to see him more involved. Jordan still hasn't stretched the field much this year but he is still reliable at getting open on short routes. It should also be noted that he took advantage of backup linebackers that simply weren't equipped to deal with him.
2017 Week 6 vs SF (5 / 4 / 37 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed had another quiet game as he only tallied four catches for thirty-seven yards. He has admitted that he isn't quite back to full healthy and it shows. He isn't stretching the field or playing with the same athleticism after the catch. Until he recovers from his toe injury this might be the norm for Jordan.
2017 Week 4 vs KC (5 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed was ineffective in this game as he only recorded three catches. None of his catches had much impact and he was playing at less than one hundred percent. He hasn't been as dynamic this season but as he gets healthier he should be a bigger factor.
2017 Week 2 vs LAR (6 / 6 / 48 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed was heavily involved in the game plan this week. He tallied six receptions, but most were mainly short completions. His longest reception went for sixteen yards. Jordan often found separation in the middle of the field to keep the chains moving. Jordan left the game with a chest injury so it will be a big loss for Washington if he is unable to suit up next week.
2017 Week 1 vs PHI (8 / 5 / 36 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed had a quiet day as he only totaled thirty-six yards on five catches. Jordan is trying to play through a fractured toe and his ability is somewhat hampered. The Eagles forced Kirk to get rid of the ball earlier than he really wanted to which led to off timing. Jordan mainly worked near the line of scrimmage and became more of an outlet rather than a down the seam threat that makes him so dangerous. As he gets healthier he should become the playmaker that Washington needs.
