Will Compton Fantasy Football News 2017

Washington placed LB Will Compton on IR this week with his Lisfranc foot sprain. That clears the way for Martrell Spaight to start in his place going forward.

Washington ILB Will Compton suffered a Lisfranc foot sprain in Sunday's loss to Minnesota, according to the team website. HC Jay Gruden indicated Compton will be out at least "a few weeks" and that the team will need to determine this week which injured players might be IR candidates. IDP owners can go ahead and drop Compton. Martrell Spaight should be a full-time player for as long as Compton's out.

Washington LB Will Compton signed his restricted free-agent tender this week and will spend at least 1 more year with the team. He'll likely compete with Mason Foster and free-agent addition Zach Brown for the 2 starting spots inside Washington's 3-4 base defense. Don't be surprised if the team adds another player to the competition via the NFL Draft.

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 LB Will Compton had an MRI Monday after hurting his neck in Sunday's win over Buffalo. The Washington Times reports that the results came back negative and that he suffered only a stinger. We'll see if that allows Compton to return for Saturday's game in Philly. He'll be a lower-level IDP option if active.

Washington ILB Perry Riley suffered a stress fracture in his right foot in Thursday's practice. He had surgery Friday and is expected to miss 3 to 6 weeks, according to the Washington Post. With 5 games left, that might cost Riley the rest of the season. He's certainly not worth clinging to in IDP leagues either way. Mason Foster -- who signed with the team in October -- will fill in. The other ILB starter, Keenan Robinson, remains a question mark after missing the past 3 games with a shoulder injury. He put in limited practices Thursday and Friday but reportedly has yet to regain full range of motion. Will Compton has been starting in his place.

Washington CB Bashaud Breeland will play against the Giants today despite a hamstring issue that left him questionable. Use him as you normally would in your IDP league. ILB Keenan Robinson will sit out once again with his shoulder injury, leaving Will Compton to start in his place. Compton's an LB3 type for fantasy use.

Washington has deemed CB Bashaud Breeland (hamstring, illness) and ILB Keenan Robinson (shoulder) questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. Breeland missed Friday's practice because of an illness. The Washington Times reports that the team hopes it'll just prove to be a 24-hour thing. If that's the case, he should be ready for Sunday's game. Breeland put in full workouts the 1st 2 days this week. Robinson has missed the past 2 games and is reportedly not optimistic about his chances of playing. If he sits, Will Compton would start again next to Perry Riley.

Washington ILB Keenan Robinson (neck/shoulder) is inactive for today's game at Carolina. Will Compton will start in his place but makes for only a low-level IDP option.

Washington LB Keenan Robinson is out for today's game against the Saints. He's officially listed with a shoulder injury but has dealt with a bevy of ailments. Will Compton and Perry Riley will likely start at the ILB spots. CB DeAngelo Hall, however, is active for the 1st time since suffering a toe injury back in Week 3. He'll be tough to trust in fantasy right away but carries upside against a pass-happy Saints offense.

Washington LB Keenan Robinson put in limited practices all week but is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the Eagles. Robinson has missed the past 2 games with a knee injury. His likely absence again this week should leave Will Compton in the starting lineup, though the matchup doesn't favor his chances to continue the solid production of his 1st 2 starts.
