Commanders on bye in Week 14 Commanders RB Brian Robinson Jr. ruled out today due to a hamstring injury. (ESPN - Adam Schefter) FF Today's Take: There is a possibility that Robinson can return in time for Week 15 against the Rams, but the Commanders could also decide that it makes little sense to do so in another lost season for the franchise. Antonio Gibson recorded three of his 14 touches in Week 13 before Robinson left for good early in the second quarter and would likely assume the lead role if Robinson isn't ready to face the Rams. How much the lead role means is another story, especially since he would likely share early-down work with Chris Rodriguez Jr.
Commanders WR Terry McLaurin managed no receptions on just 3 targets in Sunday's blowout loss to the Dolphins. And he wasn't happy about it. "I ran a lot of cardio today," he told reporters after the game. It's been a disappointing season for Washington's top wideout. Despite his offense leading the league in pass attempts entering Sunday and ranking ninth in passing yards, McLaurin was working on a career-low 57.8 yards per game. That's obviously coming down even further after Sunday's 0. WR Curtis Samuel tied with RB Antonio Gibson, and WR Jahan Dotson for the team lead with 5 targets. Samuel and Gibson caught four passes apiece, while Samuel led the team with 65 receiving yards. Washington's WRs don't look likely to help you a whole lot the rest of the way. After a Week 14 bye, the Commanders get the league's third-toughest schedule for WR scoring over the final three fantasy weeks. That includes matchups with the Jets and 49ers in the final two rounds of most fantasy playoffs.
Commanders RB Antonio Gibson took over the Washington backfield in Sunday's loss to Miami after Brian Robinson Jr. left with a hamstring injury. Gibson finished with a 56% snap share, his second-highest mark of the year. He carried 10 times for just 35 yards, though, adding a 4-37 receiving line on 5 targets. Chris Rodriguez trailed him for 7 carries, but that included rushing on the final three plays of a 45-15 defeat. Washington now gets a Week 14 bye, so we'll see about Robinson's status for the Week 15 clash with the Rams. If he's out, expect Gibson to contend for an RB2 spot in the Week 15 rankings. Rodriguez isn't worth fantasy attention for most formats at this stage of the season.
Commanders RB Brian Robinson hurt his hamstring in the first half of Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins and will not return. That leaves the backfield to Antonio Gibson and Chris Rodriguez. We'll see how work is split between those two -- although there probably won't be much running from Washington in a 31-7 hole.
