Redskins HC Jay Gruden said Wednesday that "it’s important for us to be healthy come playoff time" and hinted at resting starters in Sunday's season finale against the Cowboys.  “Number one, it’s the health of our football team with these injured guys who are legitimately injured and can’t play," he said. "Then, from there, we’ll have to figure out the able bodies that we have — personnel groupings will be adjusted — and then throughout the course of the game, we’ll make adjustments depending on the situation.”  We're not expecting WR DeSean Jackson or TE Jordan Reed to play much, if at all, this weekend.  QB Kirk Cousins, RBs Alfred Morris and Matt Jones and WR Pierre Garcon also seem unlikely to play the full game.  Try to avoid Washington players in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

The Redskins are locked into the NFC's #4 seed heading into Week 17.  HC Jay Gruden said the team will "have to be smart" about playing injured guys in the finale against the Cowboys.  We'll see if we get any more clues about Washington's plans, but QB Kirk Cousins, WR DeSean Jackson and TE Jordan Reed will also be risky Week 17 fantasy plays.

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 will have DE Jason Hatcher (neck) and LB Keenan Robinson (shoulder) active today against the Bills. Neither has made IDP-relevant contributions for a while, though, and fall short of trustworthy fantasy football status.

Washington will have DE Jason Hatcher (neck) and ILB Keenan Robinson (shoulder) are both active for today's game against the Bears despite entering the day questionable. Neither makes for an attractive IDP play, though, and Washington is no more than a boom/bust DFS defense in fantasy.

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 CB Chris Culliver suffered a torn MCL and ACL in Thursday's practice, according to FOX's Jay Glazer. That'll obviously end Culliver's season and might challenge his readiness for the start of next season. Fortunately, the Washington D is no fantasy option, so this injury shouldn't affect anyone's fantasy football lineup.

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 has deemed ILB Keenan Robinson questionable for Sunday's game at Carolina. He's dealing with neck and shoulder issues and has been managing multiple injuries for most of the season. He'll be a weak IDP option even if he's active against the Panthers.
