FANTASY PLAYS: Burning questions for NFL Week 10
A look at some key fantasy football questions for Week 10:
WHICH UNDER THE RADAR PLAYERS HAVE THE BEST CHANCE FOR A BIG GAME THIS WEEK?
Several Washington players — quarterback Alex Smith, running back Adrian Peterson, wide receiver Maurice Harris and tight end Vernon Davis — all have the potential to post big numbers this week against the Buccaneers.
Redskins rule out Crowder, Thompson and Williams vs. Falcons
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — The Washington Redskins have ruled out wide receiver Jamison Crowder, running back Chris Thompson and left tackle Trent Williams for their game Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.
First-place Redskins in search of passing game vs. Falcons
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — All games and no practice reps make Alex Smith a dull quarterback.
Redskins short-handed on offense against Cowboys
Washington's offense is without a trio of key playmakers for Sunday's game against visiting Dallas.
Receivers Paul Richardson (shoulder and knee injuries) and Jamison Crowder (ankle) are inactive as well as third-down back Chris Thompson (rib and knee).
They are three of QB Alex Smith's top four targets so far this season, with Thompson leading the Redskins with 26 catches so far. Richardson ranks third on the team with 16, and Crowder is next with 13.
Peterson runs for 120 yards, 2 TDs, Skins top Packers 31-17
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — A week removed from what he called "an embarrassment," Adrian Peterson turned in his first 100-yard game in more than 10 months.
Week 1-ready? Redskins offense is glaring question mark
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Trent Williams and Paul Richardson are pretty sure.
Jay Gruden and Jordan Reed understand there's no way to know.
After the Washington Redskins' starting offense didn't take one snap together as a complete group during the preseason, there's reason for both apprehension and optimism going into their season opener Sept. 9 at the Arizona Cardinals.
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Acquiring Alex Smith filled a long-term need at quarterback the Washington Redskins didn't think Kirk Cousins was the right fit for.
After signing Smith to a four-year extension worth $94 million, the Redskins then began looking at the other holes on their roster.
Washington lands new QB Alex Smith a speed threat in Paul Richardson
Washington will sign former Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson to a five-year, $40 million deal including $20 million guaranteed when the new league year opens Wednesday afternoon, NFL Media's Mike Garafolo reports.

Kirk Cousins’ 2 TDs lift Washington to Thanksgiving win over Giants
LANDOVER, Md. - Kirk Cousins threw two touchdown passes to compensate for a pick-6, and Washington beat the New York Giants 20-10 on Thursday night on a drab field in a drab game between two injury-depleted teams that did not look ready for prime time.
NFL reportedly tells Redskins that late intentional-grounding penalty was erroneous
The NFL reportedly told Washington team president Bruce Allen that the referees in Sunday's game incorrectly flagged Kirk Cousins for intentional grounding on the Redskins' second-to-last play of regulation, according to a report by USA Today.
Cousins told reporters after the game that the play was supposed to be a run, but the Saints were lined up to stop the run and Washington wanted to throw the ball away in the area of Jamison Crowder.
Redskins will be missing 3 starting offensive linemen
The Washington Redskins will be without three of their five starting offensive linemen Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.
Redskins center Spencer Long (knee), guard Shaun Lauvao (stinger) and tackle Trent Williams (knee) are inactive for Sunday's game. Washington also won't have starting wide receiver Jamison Crowder (hamstring), tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring) and defensive lineman Matt Ioannidis (hand).
Washington's offensive line will be as thin as feared Sunday when it plays the Seattle Seahawks in CenturyLink Field.
Left tackle Trent Williams, center Spencer Long and left guard Shawn Lauvao are out. Right guard Brandon Scherff is active, though how much he will play, and if he will start, remains in question. Morgan Moses, who sprained both ankles last week, is the "healthiest" Redskins offensive lineman.
SEATTLE -- A clarification came Saturday: Wide receiver Jamison Crowder did not travel with the Redskins to Seattle because of his hamstring injury. He is out for Sunday's game against the surging Seahawks, just another name on the list of Washington injuries.
A few things to note early Sunday morning in the cool, damp and raw Pacific Northwest:
SEATTLE -- Redskins coach Jay Gruden spent the entire week navigating a raft of injuries. The Redskins' offensive line is a mess and may have just one starter (Morgan Moses) able to play Sunday. Two tight ends are out. Jamison Crowder, Bashaud Breeland and Rob Kelley are questionable for Sunday.
Washington's flood of injuries has influenced the preparation of Seahawks coach Pete Carroll.
Jamison Crowder tweaked hamstring chasing down Kirk Cousins interception
ASHBURN Redskins wide receiver Jamison Crowder isn't sure whether he'll be able to play Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. He was officially listed as questionable Friday, but hasn't practiced all week with a hamstring injury.
Crowder said his hamstring feels good at times, but then starts to feel different when he goes to work out. The wide receiver has rehabbed to the side at practice.
FANTASY PLAYS: Stud plays for daily fantasy for Week 8
Winning in daily fantasy isn't always about outsmarting everyone through contrarian picks. Yes, you want to differentiate your lineup to increase your odds at winning in tournaments, but you can't ignore the studs that are still worth their high price tags.
Here are the top players to consider during Week 8:
KIRK COUSINS, QB, Washington ($6,400 DraftKings/$7,800 FanDuel)
Chiefs’ Fisher, 6 banged-up Redskins active Monday night
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs left tackle Eric Fisher was active for Monday night's game against the Washington Redskins after he was questionable with a back injury that caused him to miss a pair of practices.
The Chiefs were without linebacker Dee Ford, who had been ruled out with a back injury, and center Mitch Morse, who missed his second straight game with a foot sprain.
The Redskins listed six players as questionable and all were active Monday night.
Redskins’ Chris Thompson continues to be matchup nightmare
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Chris Thompson is quickly becoming a matchup nightmare.
Redskins safety Su’a Cravens undergoes knee surgery
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Washington Redskins safety Su'a Cravens had knee surgery and there's no official timeline for him to return.
Coach Jay Gruden says Cravens had a knee scope to clean out some issues with his meniscus. Gruden says Cravens was injured on the third play of the Redskins' first preseason game last week at Baltimore.
McCoy says he’s ready if Redskins call, this year or next
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The most important member of the Washington Redskins offense could easily become backup quarterback Colt McCoy.
Yes, there has been a lot of well-deserved talk about the critical roles of quarterback-turned-wide receiver Terrelle Pryor Sr. and slot man Jamison Crowder. But McCoy, in his eighth season, is one play away from having the Redskins' fortunes in his hands.
Key Redskins starters active for London game vs. Bengals
LONDON (AP) — Key starters on the banged-up Washington Redskins are active for Sunday's game in London versus the healthy Cincinnati Bengals.
Redskins RB Matt Jones misses practice with knee injury
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Washington Redskins running back Matt Jones was held out of practice Wednesday with a knee injury.
Coach Jay Gruden says Jones reported soreness while moving laterally and pain when cutting. It's unclear how the injury will affect Jones' availability for the Redskins' game Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals in London.
Streaking Redskins get defensive in 16-10 win over Ravens
BALTIMORE (AP) — The Washington Redskins abandoned their usual formula for victory — the passing of Kirk Cousins — to extend their winning streak to three.
Washington used an 85-yard punt return by Jamison Crowder and an uncharacteristically strong performance by its defense to beat the Baltimore Ravens 16-10 on Sunday.
ASHBURN After missing practice the last two days, Washington Redskins wide receiver Jamison Crowder will sit out the third preseason game against the Buffalo Billson Friday.Crowder missed the Redskins preseason opener with a strained hamstring but returned against the New York Jets last week.Running back Matt Jones and wide receiver Josh Doctson will also be out. Jones will miss the remainder of the preseason with a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder and Doctson remains on the physically unable to perform list because of left Achilles' tendon tendinitis.Defensive end Chris Baker and safety Deshazor Everett also did not practiceon Wednesday. Coach Jay Gruden said Baker is "a little sore," but will be fine. Everett pulled a hamstring.
Jamison Crowder’s status uncertain for third preseason game after knee injury
ASHBURN Washington Redskins wide receiver Jamison Crowder did not practice on Tuesday after sustaining a knee injury in last week's 22-18 win against the New York Jets.
Crowder did not play in the first preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons because of a strained hamstring, but played 28 snaps on offense against the Jets. He caught three passes for 38 yards, and had a 7-yard touchdown reception nullified by an offensive pass interference call on rookie Maurice Harris.
