The Washington Football Team selected Jamin Davis with the 19th pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. Davis gained attention with his strong pro day workout, delivering 98th-percentile or better measurements in the 40, vertical and broad jump. Davis also delivered statistically in his lone starting season at Kentucky, tallying 102 tackles, 4 tackles for loss and 3 INTs over 10 games. In Washington, he should be able to land a full-time role right away. Davis sports immediate IDP upside.

Washington LB Cole Holcomb is off the final injury report after putting in full practices Thursday and Friday and ready to face the Panthers on Sunday. He should re-join Jon Bostic as the playing-time and tackle leaders among Washington LBs. Check our Week 16 IDP rankings to see at what level Holcomb makes sense.

Washington LB Cole Holcomb sustained a concussion in practice this week and will miss today's game against the Seahawks. With Kevin Pierre-Louis also out, that likely leaves Thomas Davis to join Jon Bostic as the playing-time leaders for the Washington LB corps vs. Seattle.

In pushing back this week's Ravens-Steelers game to Wednesday, the league has also pushed back the Week 13 start times for each team. Pittsburgh will now face Washington at 5 p.m. ET on Monday. Baltimore will host Dallas at 8:05 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Both should remain inside Week 13 fantasy scoring without issue at those times.

Washington LB Jon Bostic was ejected from Sunday's game against the Cowboys after a shot to the head that knocked QB Andy Dalton out of the contest. We'll see if any further league discipline is coming for Bostic.

Washington S Landon Collins left in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Cowboys with an ankle injury. The issue was serious enough to have him carted from the sideline to the locker room. FOX Sports injury analyst Dr. Matt Provencher said the injury looked like it could be a high-ankle sprain or even an Achilles' tendon tear. Either would make Collins droppable in most IDP redraft leagues. We'll see about the official diagnosis.

Update: NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that the team believes it's a torn Achilles' tendon.

Washington DE Chase Young (groin) is active for today's game against the Rams. It's tough to know just how close he is to full health, but Young carries plenty of upside to make him an IDP option whenever healthy.

Washington expects DE Chase Young to play today against the Rams, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Young missed Week 4 with a groin injury and enters today questionable. He got in a full Friday practice, though, and should be available for IDP lineups. We'll confirm his status when inactives are released.

Washington DE Chase Young (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. Young managed a full practice Friday for the 1st time since suffering the injury. That followed a limited Thursday workout after he sat out Wednesday. Young seems to be trending toward playing Sunday, but we'll check his status Sunday morning. He'd obviously carry risk even if active but would also present fantasy upside. Young's return would also help the upside of the Washington defense as a cheap DFS option.

Washington LB Kevin Pierre-Louis is active for today's game against the Ravens. He turned up questionable because of an illness. His playing time dipped last week, but Pierre-Louis still played 80% of the snaps. He's not a high-level IDP option but in play still for deeper leagues.

Washington expects DE Chase Young to miss Sunday's game against the Ravens, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Beyond that, the rookie is "week-to-week" with the groin strain he suffered Sunday against Cleveland. We'll see about Young's availability for Week 5. Keep him on IDP rosters for now if you can.

Washington DT Matt Ioannidis suffered a torn biceps in Sunday's loss to the Browns and is expected to miss the rest of the season, according to multiple reports. His absence could mean more weekly snaps for DTs Jonathan Allen and Da'Ron Payne. Each saw a season-high snap share at Cleveland: 79% for Allen and 81% for Payne.

Washington DE Chase Young left in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's loss to Cleveland with a groin injury and did not return. DE Ryan Kerrigan doubled his playing time vs. the 1st 2 games in Young's absence and would be in IDP lineup contention if Young misses further time. DT Matt Ioannidis also left in the 1st half with an arm injury. Both will get further evaluation Monday, according to ESPN's John Keim.

Washington CB Kendall Fuller (knee) is inactive for today's game against Arizona. Jimmy Moreland is expected to start in his place. LB Thomas Davis (calf) is active for the game. We'll see whether his return changes the LB lineup. Jon Bostic and Kevin Pierre-Louis were the full-time LBs in Week 1.

Washington CB Kendall Fuller (knee) and LB Thomas Davis (calf) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. It's more likely that neither would be in your IDP plans even if active, but we'll update their statuses Sunday afternoon. Davis' return after he missed Week 1 could complicate Washington's LB picture.

Washington CB Kendall Fuller (knee) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Eagles. That leaves an already iffy secondary without a starter against a dangerous crew of pass-catchers that includes WRs DeSean Jackson and Jalen Reagor. The rookie could particularly benefit if he sees as much time in the slot as anticipated. Fuller has worked primarily as a slot corner.
