Washington Redskins Fantasy Football News 2017

Washington drafted Alabama edge rusher Ryan Anderson in the 2nd round. Anderson tallied 14.5 sacks and 30 total tackles for loss over the past 2 seasons. He'll play OLB in Washington but will need to wait before he can find a starting role. Ryan Kerrigan is signed through 2019. Preston Smith's rookie contract runs through 2018.

Washington spent the 17th overall pick on DL Jonathan Allen. The Alabama alum had been mocked into the top 5 plenty of times, but concerns about his shoulders obviously pushed him down the board. Washington's defense could get a nice boost if he stays healthy and pans out. There's IDP upside in a 3-4 DE spot.

Washington OLB Trent Murphy lost his appeal of a 4-game PED suspension this week, according to the Washington Times. So Murphy will miss the 1st 4 games of the 2017 season. Washington's defense will still have OLB's Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith in the starting lineup.

Washington DE Chris Baker (ankle), ILB Will Compton (knee) and OLB Trent Murphy (foot) are active for today's game against the Giants and fine to use in IDP lineups if you had planned to do so.

Washington ILB Will Compton (knee) is active for today's game against the Bears after missing the Monday night loss to the Panthers. He's OK for your IDP lineup, but we'd rather use teammate ILB Mason Foster without the knee question. Other questionable Washington defenders who are active include OLB Ryan Kerrigan (elbow) and DE Chris Baker (ankle).

As expected, Washington ILB Will Compton (knee) is inactive for tonight's game against the Panthers. He entered the weekend doubtful. DE Chris Baker is active, however, after coming in questionable.

Washington ILB Will Compton (knee) is doubtful for Monday night's game against the Panthers. IDP owners should expect to be without him. Teammate Mason Foster racked up a season-high 12 solo tackles plus a sack last week, when Compton left early in the win over the Eagles.

Washington ILB Will Compton left in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's win over the Eagles with a knee injury. Compton said afterward that he's "optimistic" it won't prove to be serious, according to Brian McNally of 106.7 The Fan in Washington, D.C. ESPN reports he'll have an MRI on Monday. We'll see what the tests say.

Washington ILB Will Compton (hip), OLB Preston Smith (groin) and DE Chris Baker (ankle) are all active for today's game against the Eagles. Compton is the top IDP factor among the trio, but the presence of all 3 helps the team D in an upside matchup.

Washington DE Chris Baker (ankle), ILB Will Compton (hip) and OLB Preston Smith (groin) are all questionable for Sunday's game in Philadelphia. Baker missed the 1st 2 days of practice this week before putting in a limited Friday workout. He looks too risky to be worth using in IDP lineups. Compton and Smith each put in limited practices the 1st 2 days before full workouts Friday and should be fine to treat as normal if they're active.

Washington CB Bashaud Breeland (ankle) and OLB Trent Murphy (ankle) are active for today's game at Arizona. Both face upside matchups in IDP formats.

Washington CB Bashaud Breeland (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game at Arizona. He was a limited participant Thursday and Friday after a full workout Wednesday. We'll check on his game status Sunday. OLB Trent Murphy (ankle) is also oddly listed as questionable. He didn't appear on Wednesday's injury report and then was marked a full participant Thursday and Friday. We'll confirm his status Sunday as well. Washington's defense carries sleeper potential against a Cardinals team that has proved to be a strong matchup for team-D scoring in fantasy.
