Week 11: vs New York Jets - $6000

All QB vs NYJ

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Washington Redskins have officially committed to rookie Dwayne Haskins as their starting quarterback for the remainder of the 2019 campaign. This announcement came during the team's bye week, following a brutal 1-8 start to the season. In limited action this year, Haskins has been significantly worse under center than either Case Keenum or Colt McCoy, but this is a decision made with one eye on the future. In the short-term, Washington's already horrific passing attack is poised to struggle with Haskins at the helm. Through his first 44 pass attempts of his career, Haskins has 0 touchdowns, 4 interceptions, and has posted a measly 2.4 adjusted yards per attempt. Terry McLaurin remains the team's number-one target moving forward, as his dominance in Washington's passing attack cannot be understated. McLaurin was also a collegiate teammate of Haskins last season at Ohio State, whom Haskins specifically requested the Redskins draft alongside him. Paul Richardson is the team's next-best receiving option, but the volume and quality of targets available aside from McLaurin are uninspiring. Washington's offensive line ranks amongst the league's worst, which will not bode well for a young and developing quarterback this weekend in a typically run-heavy offensive attack. The New York Jets' pass defense faces a remarkably-high number of pass attempts, in large part thanks to the team's impressive run defense, and their efficiency numbers against the pass are respectable overall. The Jets' pass-rush is an average unit overall, headlined by an emerging Jordan Jenkins with five sacks on the edge. At linebacker, C.J. Mosely is going to miss week 11's game due to a groin injury. In his place, James Burgess has started at linebacker. Burgess is a horrific pass defender, and teams have exploited this over the middle in recent weeks with Mike Gesicki and Rhett Ellison, two underwhelming fantasy producers, to post 15.5 and 7.2 PPR points, respectively. The Jets' secondary has been a strength of this team, with Marcus Maye, Jamal Adams, and Brian Poole leading an impressive unit, but recent injuries have left the unit exposed elsewhere. Trumaine Johnson made his way to the IR two weeks ago, and Darryl Roberts' status is in question this weekend due to a calf injury. In his place, expect either Arthur Maulet or Blessuan Austin, both of whom are inexperienced and uninspiring reserves, to enter the starting lineup at cornerback. Last weekend, Daniel Jones carved up the Jets for 300 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions in a shockingly-strong performance by the rookie. This weekend, another rookie, Dwayne Haskins, will need to exploit these few relative weaknesses in the Jets' defense if he has any hopes of success with the odds stacked against him here in week 11.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 8 vs MIN (12 / 16 / 130 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush - 3.2 points, $6400)

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 - 3.08 points, $6600)

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 - 15.64 points, $6500)

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 - 0.48 points, $7200)

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 - 16.74 points, $6900)

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 - 27.2 points, $6200)

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.
