QB Case Keenum - Washington Redskins
|6-0, 208||Born: 2-17-1988||College: Houston||Drafted: ---|
Week 14: at Green Bay Packers
FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Redskins passing offense continues to be a work in progress as rookie Dwayne Haskins is still learning as he had limited experience in college with just one season as the starter at Ohio State. Haskins has completed just 54% of his passes and has thrown six interceptions compared to just two touchdowns in his six games as a starting quarterback, and has been sacked 22 times in just six games. The reality is that Haskins has been put in a tough spot, as the team has limited options at wide receiver with fellow rookie Terry McLaurin the only receiver to have more than 300 yards or 30 catches this season as Paul Richardson, Kelvin Harmon, and Trey Quinn have all been non-existent this season. If there is good news on the horizon, it is that Chris Thompson was able to return last week which should provide a check-down option that neither Adrian Peterson nor Derrius Guice possess as both are limited as receivers. The Packers are a team that is designed to stop the pass and so far this season, yet have not been a shut-down defense. While on the surface they have allowed the 8th-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks, they have allowed 271 yards passing per game which is the 9th most in the NFL this season as they are propped up by allowing just 1.3 passing touchdowns per game. This is a unit that is still very young at the corner position as they are led by Jaire Alexander who continues to develop into one of the better cornerbacks in football. Opposite of Alexander, Kevin King has had his ups and downs this year and has struggled with consistency. However, the real problem for the Packers has been stopping tight ends. Over their last six games, the Packers have allowed an average of 103 yards per game to the position which is 40 yards more than the next closest team. Blake Martinez and Ibraheim Campbell have both struggled mightily in stopping the position and while the competition that they have faced has been some of the better tight ends in football, they were also exposed by Kaden Smith for 70 yards last week.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 8 vs MIN (12 / 16 / 130 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Case Keenum had a good start to this game until the untimely turnover. He led the offense to three first downs and completed his first three passes before giving the ball back to Minnesota. Case had the Redskins in scoring position twice but only came away with field goals. Play-action passing, and the run game worked surprisingly well against the Vikings defense. However, Case only came away with two field goals and exited the game at halftime due to concussion. Its unfortunate Case went down because this was the best the offense had looked in weeks.
2019 Week 7 vs SF (9 / 12 / 77 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Case Keenum was in extreme game manager mode today with the harsh weather conditions. Between the heavy rain and Bill Callahan's emphasis to "establish the run" Case only attempted twelve passes on the day. He didn't even cross the hundred-yard mark as each of his nine completions were within ten yards. Ball security was even more important in today's game as the weather conditions were extremely sloppy. Therefore, Case was reluctant to take any chances and the play calling was just as conservative. He got the Washington offense in scoring position on the opening, but the thirty-nine-yard field goal was missed.
2019 Week 6 vs MIA (13 / 25 / 166 / 2 / 0 pass, 4 / 10 / 0 rush)
Case Keenum did just well enough to win against the Dolphins. With the coaching change, came a differing philosophy as the offense went to a more run-oriented unit. This kept the chance for turnovers to a minimum although Case did have a fumble in this game. Nonetheless it was recovered by Washington. Case connected on less than 50% of his attempts today but he did manage to throw two touchdowns. His 2nd touchdown was the easiest pass he had all day on a streak upfield for thirty-yard touchdown. Case wasn't sharp at all in this game but playing against a team that is arguable worse than Washington he had room for error.
2019 Week 4 vs NYG (6 / 11 / 37 / 0 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Case Keenum had his worst start to a game this season and it ended with him being replaced. He was wildly inaccurate and continued his bad decision making from the previous game. On the third play of the game he threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown. He also missed Trey Quinn for a potential touchdown on a seam route deep downfield. With a little under 7 minutes left in the second quarter he was replaced by Dwayne Haskins.
2019 Week 2 vs DAL (26 / 37 / 221 / 2 / 0 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Case Keenum played a steady game although it resulted in a loss. The offense started slow with a few 3-and-out possessions, but Case finally put together a scoring drive at the end of the first quarter. The touchdown drive was run dominated with eight runs and two passes. To cap off the drive, Case handed the ball off on the goal line and Washington was on the board to start the second quarter. After halftime, Case orchestrated an eleven-play drive that ended with a twelve-yard pass on a hook route where the receiver did most of the work. Case didn't have many possessions to do much damage in the second half, but he did manage one more scoring drive as the game was mostly already decided. The defense struggled to get off the field, so the offense was stalled. Case took care of the ball and made plays, but not enough to get a win.
2019 Week 1 vs PHI (30 / 44 / 380 / 3 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Case Keenum had a perfect start to this game, literally. He demonstrated great command of the offense and established a rhythm to offset the Eagles pressure. The opening drive touchdown pass may have been the result of poor tackling as Case threw a quick out to Vernon Davis. The bad tackling turned into a forty-eight yard touchdown. The most impressive part of Case's first half performance is that they weren't running the ball well. The short passing game opened up a few deep shots as Case connected with Terry McLaurin on a deep post to record his 2nd touchdown of the first half. Case rung up 20 twenty points for the Washington offense in the first half and looked great. The second half was a different story. The Washington offense had only managed ten plays and thirty yards as it got late into the 2nd half. A few three and outs to go along with long drives by the Eagles left Washington on the sidelines a ton. Case managed one late garbage time touchdown but the game had already been decided. Case couldn't capitalize on the minimal opportunities in the second half as the Eagles were rallying. Case did overthrow a potential touchdown in the third quarter that could have been a huge momentum booster if he connects. Nonetheless, the offense was shut down in the second half and Case's solid game was cut short.
