2016 Week 18 vs HOU (4 / 16 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
With the offense struggling mightily, Richard provided a spark on special teams with a long punt return into Texans territory that setup the Raiders first offensive touchdown. Richard did well to go down and snag a poorly thrown ball from Cook on a quick flare route. He had some room to run, but the poor throw took away any opportunity for yards after the catch.
2016 Week 17 vs DEN (7 / 43 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
For the second straight week, Washington was the most impressive of the Raiders backs. He was in the game early, getting carries on the second and third offensive snaps of the game. His most impressive run was a dash straight up the middle for 20 yards in which he pinballed off of an attempted tackle and stayed on his feet for an extra five yards. While Washington has emerged late, he still only had nine touches and will continue to share snaps in what is now an awful offense without Derek Carr.
2016 Week 16 vs IND (12 / 99 / 2 rush, 1 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)
It was a breakout day for the Raiders rookie back who had been a healthy scratch off an on over the past month. Washington showed tremendous vision, speed and burst and broke off a number of big plays. His first big gain came in the final minute before halftime. He was wide open on a short crossing route and took it for an 18-yard gain. He was finally knocked down inside the Colts five-yard line. Washington really got rolling in the third quarter. He keyed a long touchdown drive to open the second half with back-to-back runs up the middle for 9 yards and 10 yards. A few plays later, he broke off a spectacular 22-yard touchdown run. He make a tackler miss in the backfield with a sick jump cut and then burst through a narrow seam through the secondary and into the end zone. A few minutes later, a Colts fumble setup another 22-yard touchdown run for Washington. This one didn't require much from the running back, as the Raiders opened up a massive hole off of right tackle and Washington easily sprinted through it untouched into the end zone. Washington continued his monster third quarter effort with an 11-yard run on a 3rd-and-5 draw play the next drive.
2016 Week 15 vs SD (5 / 23 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Washington only played 10 snaps, but touched the ball or was targeted on eight of those 10 snaps. It was his most extensive action since Week 9. He shows nice quickness but has been slightly less physical than Richard, which has allowed the undrafted rookie to slip ahead on the depth chart.
2016 Week 11 vs HOU (1 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Washington played just four of 53 snaps and has clearly fallen behind Richard.
2016 Week 9 vs DEN (10 / 35 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec)
Washington was narrowly out-snapped by Richard 19-to-17 and Richard looked more dangerous on his opportunities. Washington touched the ball on 11 of his 17 snaps. He regularly rotated in with Murray in the fourth quarter and was able to plow forward for positive gains of 4-to-5 yards on a number of runs up the gut.
2016 Week 8 vs TB (5 / 32 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Washington ran into a mass of bodies at the line, but showed incredible balance to stay up and bounced outside for a 28-yard gain. He split time with Richard behind Murray, but had a quiet day aside from the big run.
2016 Week 7 vs JAX (5 / 16 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Washington got the start and carried on the game's first two plays. He again ran well, but didn't get many opportunities. He made the first man miss on a short dump off pass to pick up a solid gain. The Raiders potentially had a screen set up pretty well, but Washington dropped the short pass from Carr.
2016 Week 6 vs KC (10 / 49 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Washington got the start and earned a 1st-and-goal carry from the 4-yard line on the opening drive. He was stuffed for a short gain. The next two goal line plays, the Raiders lined up without a running back. Washington ran well. He was able to pick up seven yards on an interior run in which he spun off of a tackle attempt in the backfield and powered forward. He also spun off a tackle to pick up eight yards in the second half. While Washington was picking up solid chunks when given carries, the Raiders were strangely unwilling to commit to the ground game despite the passing game struggling in the second half. If play-calling were to change and Washington was fed 15-20 carries, he has the talent to put up a big game.
2016 Week 5 vs SD (9 / 23 / 0 rush, 6 / 5 / 29 / 0 rec)
With Latavius Murray sidelined by a foot injury, Coach Del Rio stated the plan would be to split carries between Washington and Jalen Richard, but ride the hot hand should either find early success. Washington got the first shot and ripped off an 8-yard carry on the Raiders first run of the day. The promising start quickly fizzled though. Two plays later, Washington was slow getting his head around on a screen route and with Carr having to unload the ball quickly, it led to an interception. The early 8-yard run was the highlight of the day on the ground for Washington, as he managed just 15 total yards on his other eight carries. Washington for a goal line carry from the 3-yard line, but was stuffed for a short gain. Washington drew a pass interference penalty inside the red zone on what would have been a 15-yard reception. DeAndre Washington led the Raiders backs in snaps (37) over Jalen Richard (23) and Jamize Olawale (22). While Washington passes the eye test, with burst, quick feet and soft hands out of the backfield, so too does Richard and there is little separation between the two.
2016 Week 4 vs BAL (5 / 30 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 16 / 0 rec)
It was announced before the game that Washington would see an increase in playing time, but he only played 10 snaps. He did touch the ball on 80% of the snaps he played however. Washington picked up nearly half of the Raiders total rushing yards on a 28-yard run in the second-quarter. He took a pitch to the left, ran through an arm tackle in the backfield and then showed impressive acceleration down the sideline before being knocked out of bounds a few yards short of the end zone. Washington made a huge rookie error. He lost a fumble deep in Oakland territory with the Raiders nursing a lead in the final minutes. While Jalen Richard played five more snaps, Washington out-touched him 8-to-3.
2016 Week 3 vs TEN (6 / 57 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
His burst is obvious every time he touches the ball. He did much of his damage on a 91-yard touchdown drive in the final minutes before halftime. He racked up 49 yards on three consecutive plays. He broke off a 30-yard gain. Hit the hole fast and ran through an attempted arm tackle. The next play he took a draw up the middle for 14 yards. Finally, he caught a short pass over the middle to move the offense into the red zone.
2016 Week 2 vs ATL (7 / 46 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Washington burst through the middle of the line for a big gain. He ran threw an arm tackle in the hole and then stiff-armed the Falcons safety to pick up even more yards before being dragged down after a 26-yard gain. Played one less snap (15) than Jalen Richard as the two have been splitting the backup duties.
2016 Week 1 vs NO (5 / 14 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Washington touched the ball six times on his eight snaps. He looked quick on a 10-yard reception, but managed just 2.8 yards per carry on his five rushing attempts. Washington split time almost evenly with Richard, but it was Richard who looked more of a big-play threat in limited opportunities. While Richard may have pulled slightly ahead in the battle for the backup running back job, expect both rookies to have a weekly role moving forward.
Latest NewsRaiders | Marshawn Lynch will be used on early downs (Wed Apr 26, 02:13 PM) - Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch is expected to be on the field for first and second downs with the Raiders. RB DeAndre Washington, RB Jalen Richard and FB Jamize Olawale are expected to see time on third down. Our View: This is the same role Latavius Murray turned into solid RB2 numbers last year. Unless Lynch is horribly out of shape (which seems unlikely considering reports and the Raiders willingness to trade for and pay him), he can reproduce that level of production.
