Redskins RB Rob Kelley took 10 carries for 57 yards and a score in Sunday's preseason game. He ripped off a 21-yarder in the 2nd quarter and plunged in a 1-yard TD later in the drive. Kelley was even targeted twice in the passing game, catching 1 ball for 3 yards. RB Samaje Perine, meanwhile, carried just once for 3 yards with the 1st-team offense. This was the nail in the rookie's coffin. Perine is just a late-round flier in fantasy drafts. Kelley is locked in as Washington's lead back heading into Week 1. He'll lose passing-down work to RB Chris Thompson but will be a low-end fantasy starter.

The Redskins have placed RB Rob Kelley on IR with a toe injury suffered in Week 2. It's unclear if he's a candidate to be designated to return after 8 weeks. Either way, Kelley can be dropped in all fantasy leagues. He played just 9 offensive snaps through 2 games, so there's not much fantasy impact here. Samaje Perine will step in as Washington's #3 RB but isn't worth rostering.

The Redskins have placed RB Rob Kelley on IR with the ankle and knee injuries he suffered in last weekend's loss to the Vikings. Kelley finishes a disappointing 2nd season with 194 yards and 3 TDs on 62 carries -- just 3.1 yards per attempt. He'll need to battle for a role next summer. Rookie RB Samaje Perine has struggled so far but has a major opportunity down the stretch.

Redskins RB Rob Kelley has been diagnosed with both a high-ankle sprain and a Grade 1/2 MCL sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. There's no timetable for his return yet, but expect him to miss at least a month. Kelley is droppable in redraft leagues. Rookie RB Samaje Perine will take over as Washington's lead ball-carrier, making him worth adding to fantasy rosters. But he's averaging just 3.2 yards per carry this year and won't contribute much in the passing game.

Redskins RB Rob Kelley is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Vikings with a knee/ankle injury, the team announced. His absences leaves the backfield to Chris Thompson and Samaje Perine.

2:11pm EST 11/5/17

Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Seahawks. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported this morning that Kelley “won’t have a full workload.” He’s a weak fantasy play as a big road underdog vs. the #7 RB defense.
