Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 17 vs DEN (17 / 77 / 0 rush, 9 / 8 / 55 / 0 rec)
Washington was a workhorse in every sense for the Raiders. He played 75% of the snaps and dominated the running back touches. He was heavily involved as both a runner and receiver. In fact, his eight receptions led the way for the Raiders. There wasn't much running room for Washington in the first half but he started to have more success both as a runner and receiver after halftime. He opened up the second half with a spectacular run for 36 yards. He slid through a small hole, bounced off of a tackle and broke it outside for the long gain. He was able to pick up yardage in small but consistent chunks of five to 15 yards on short passes, throughout the game.
2019 Week 16 vs LAC (23 / 85 / 1 rush, 3 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)
With Josh Jacobs sidelined, Washington again stepped into the lead role. He actually played slightly more snaps (63%) than Jacobs typically plays because the Raiders only had two backs to split touches instead of the usual three. He played exactly 63% in the last game Jacobs missed as well. Washington got off to a slow start, managing just six yards in the first quarter and 11 yards in the second quarter. It wasn't for lack of effectiveness because over half of his first-half runs went for five or more yards, the Raiders just didn't make much effort to get the running game going. The second half was a different story. The Raiders got the ball first out of halftime and it was all Washington. He carried it seven times on the drive and finished it off with a 5-yard touchdown run. He ran left and cut back into a big hole, going untouched until a defender glanced off of him just inches short of the goal line. The next drive Washington received six carries, as the Raiders continued to bleed the clock on long, run-heavy drives. Oakland had nine plays on their finals two drives and eight of those plays were Washington runs. He burst up the middle for a 13-yard gain and a first down with just under a minute left that put the game away. The Raiders offense hasn't missed a beat in the two games without Jacobs due to Washington's strong play.
2019 Week 15 vs JAX (6 / 16 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 6 / 0 rec)
After the big game filling in for Josh Jacobs last week, Washington was an afterthought in Week 15. He played just 15% of the snaps. He caught a 9-yard pass on the opening drive and had a few nice runs up the middle. He was also dropped for a pair of big losses, including a blown up run play where he took a huge hit that went for minus-four yards.
2019 Week 14 vs TEN (14 / 53 / 1 rush, 7 / 6 / 43 / 0 rec)
Washington stepped into the starting role with Josh Jacobs sidelined by a shoulder injury. He played 63% of the snaps, which was the fourth-highest share of snaps for any Raiders running back in a game this season. Washington performed very well in the role. On the opening drive, Washington had a beautiful 14-yard touchdown run. He got to the second-level and made a linebacker miss, then spun through a tackle attempt at the 4-yard line to get into the end zone. Washington was heavily involved as a receiver, both out of the backfield and split out wide. On one play, he motioned to the left, lined up as the lone receiver on that side and caught a screen pass for a four yard gain. Washington's best run of the day may have come on a 2-yard gain on 2nd-and-1. A defensive tackle penetrated and looked to have him for a 3-yard loss but he made a nifty jump cut to get outside, cut it back upfield, then lowered his shoulder to pick up the first down. If there was one area where Washington was not quite as effective as Jacobs, it was down around the goal line. Washington was stuffed twice on goal line carries and was knocked backward on both runs.
2019 Week 13 vs KC (2 / 5 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 44 / 0 rec)
Washington caught a short dump off and found a lot of room to run, sprinting down the middle of the field for a 28-yard gain. He made a nice toe-drag reception along the sideline for a 7-yard gain.
2019 Week 9 vs DET (3 / 7 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 21 / 0 rec)
Washington played just seven snaps. He made a nice catch out of the backfield, faking like he was going to run a wheel route and then making a sharp cut into the middle of the field. He caught the short pass from Carr, split a pair of defenders, and raced for a 21-yard gain.
2019 Week 8 vs HOU (5 / 23 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Washington didn't get many opportunities but was able to gain solid yardage on each of his carries and caught his lone target.
2019 Week 7 vs GB (6 / 29 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Washington is typically getting a series or two at running back each game. He ran it for 8 yards to open a second quarter drive and was out there for a couple long pass plays but then got pulled for Jacobs when the Raiders got inside the 5-yard line. Without much usage in the passing game and minimal short-yardage work, Washington won't make much of an impact.
2019 Week 5 vs CHI (6 / 17 / 1 rush, 3 / 3 / 19 / 0 rec)
Washington was the second back in the rotation behind Josh Jacobs. He lined up out wide along the sideline and caught a comeback route for 10 yards. Six of Washington's touches came in a 7-minute span of the second quarter while Jacobs was in the locker room. He got a rare goal line opportunity with Jacobs out and was able to cash in with a 3-yard touchdown run off of right tackle.
2019 Week 4 vs IND (6 / 18 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec)
Washington only played 19% of the snaps but was again the second back into the game, subbing in for Jacobs early on the opening drive. He promptly caught a swing pass for 7 yards. Washington was targeted on a dump off but had a bad drop. He turned his head to start running before securing what should have been an easy catch for a short gain. Washington subbed in for Jacobs on a third quarter drive and carried it five times on the drive, including multiple times in the red zone. After back-to-back runs of 7 and 6 yards set the Raiders up with 1st-and-goal from the 8-yard line, Washington was dropped at the line on first down.
2019 Week 3 vs MIN (6 / 22 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Washington isn't getting a lot of playing time (9 snaps) but is touching the ball most of the time he is on the field. He is being used almost exclusively to run the ball and appears to be the direct backup to Josh Jacobs. Should Jacobs go down with injury, Washington would be the prime beneficiary and see a big uptick in touches. Washington showed well in this game. His first carry of the game probably should have gone for a loss but he made something out of nothing. It started with a sweet jump cut, he stiff-armed the first defender and lowered his head to push through two tacklers to pick up the first down.
2019 Week 2 vs KC (3 / 9 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 26 / 0 rec)
Washington was the second back into the game, handling the third series of the game, which was a three-and-out. After a couple mistakes by Richard, Washington took over in the two-minute drill before halftime and made a sweet catch and run over the middle, grabbing the ball on the run below his knees.
2019 Week 1 vs DEN (2 / 8 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Washington played just five snaps. He made a nice cut and spun through the first tackle attempt for a gain of seven yards. Washington was stacked up at the line for a minimal gain on his only other carry.
