DeAndre Washington
It is a bit of a risky move to trust DeAndre Washington in a spot start this weekend with Latavius Murray hurting (toe), but sometimes desperate times call for desperate measures.
Washington has been effective this year in limited work. He’s averaging 6.4 yards per carry and 46 total yards per game on just 29 total touches.
Game 1:  5 carries for 14 yards, 1 catch for 10 yards
Game 2: 7 carries for 46 yards, 1 catch for 6 yards
Game 3: 6 carries for 57 yards, 1 catch for 5 yards
Game 4: 5 carries for 30 yards, 3 catches for 16 yards
Jalen Richard has also been effective this year wtih 45.6 total yards per game on 22 total touches. He’s averaging 8.5 yards per carry and has scored a touchdown.
Game 1:  3 carries for 84 yards, 2 catches for 11 yards
Game 2: 6 carries for 17 yards, 1 catch for 10 yards
Game 3: 6 carries for 28 yards, 1 catch for 13 yards
Game 4: 2 carries for 15 yards, 1 catches for 5 yards
The prevailing wisdom suggests that Washington will have more touches than Richard if Murray misses this week as he had eight touches to Richard’s three last week. Both are worth an add in case they go off this week and Murray’s injury lingers. With both expected to contribute, they are best stashed on your bench until we have a better idea of their usage. I would lean Washington as the preferred add.
Murray has been ineffective the past two games (3.7 and 2.4 ypc), but still has scored in three of four games and has a 4.3 ypc on the season. He may be worth a trade offer as his value is low right now.
