There are several situations to monitor for today.
Pierre Garcon is not expected to be active for the Redskins today in St. Louis. This could mean increased targets for Fred Davis and Santana Moss. Maybe Leonard Hankerson will actually find the field. The Rams pass defense was feisty last week vs the Lions despite giving up 300+ yards to Matt Stafford. The only Redskins receiving option I’d start would be Fred Davis.
Jeremy Maclin and DeSaun Jackson are expected to play despite missing practice this week. Confirm this before kickoff.
Nate Washington hasn’t practiced all week and is questionable for today’s game vs San Diego. It’s a late-afternoon game so if your safer option starts early be sure to get him in. Jake Locker will play despite the questionable designation although I’m pretty sure I’m the only person reading this who would consider starting him.
Also in question for the San Diego-Tennessee game is Ryan Mathews. He was cleared for contact earlier in the week but the consensus at this point is that they’ll hold him out another week. Hopefully you’re not in too big of a hole by the time he actually plays if you’re a Mathews owner.
I’ll update this when the early inactives are announced. If you’re deciding between two similar options, I highly suggest waiting until you have as much information as possible to potentially use it as a tie-breaker. For instance, Darrelle Revis is out with a concussion this week. You were probably going to start Antonio Brown and Mike Wallace anyway but if you’re in a small league you should bump them up.
