Player Outlook

Until Dwayne Washington finds meaningful playing time with the Saints this fall, Fantasy bosses shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.

Player News
  • Washington will try to fend off competition for the No. 3 running-back job from Javorius Allen, Matthew Dayes and undrafted rookie Devine Ozigbo during training camp, Rod Walker of The New Orleans Advocate reports. Washington is the incumbent, coming off a 2018 campaign in which he logged 173 snaps on special teams and 46 on offense in 13 games. The highlight of his season was an 11-carry, 108-yard performance against the Panthers in Week 17, when New Orleans rested most of its starters to get ready for the playoffs. The experience on special teams certainly helps, but Allen and Dayes probably can offer more in the passing game, while Ozigbo has more potential for development as a runner. This should be a fierce competition throughout training camp and preseason.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: Limited role in 2018
    By RotoWire Staff

    Washington rushed for 173 yards on 27 carries across 13 games for the Saints in 2018. Washington averaged an impressive 5.7 yards per carry but couldn't work his way into a larger role behind Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram. His most impressive game was in Week 17, when he rushed for 108 yards on 11 carries. He'll look to carve out a larger role for himself with New Orleans in 2019.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: Impressive in larger role
    By RotoWire Staff

    Washington ran for 108 yards on 11 carries during Sunday's 33-14 loss to Carolina. With nothing really to play for in Week 17, the Saints gave Washington a longer look and he didn't disappoint, gashing the Panthers for a handful of nice carries, including a 26-yarder at the end of the third quarter that set up a touchdown. The third-year back entered Sunday with just 16 carries in 12 games, but maybe Sunday's strong showing can lead to a modest supporting role in the playoffs behind Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: Could be busy Week 17
    By RotoWire Staff

    Washington figures to have a major role Sunday against Carolina, but he won't necessarily get all the snaps at running back, Josh Katzenstein of NOLA.com reports. Washington is the only running back on the roster behind Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram, both obvious candidates to be rested in a meaningless game. With Teddy Bridgewater already confirmed as the starting quarterback, it's best to assume Kamara and Ingram will either play sparsely or not at all. If the team doesn't sign another backfield option before Sunday's game, Washington could find himself handling a high-volume role, albeit in an offense that's also using backups at a number of other positions. For what it's worth, there's been chatter about the Panthers resting some key players before the end of Sunday's game, though they surely won't be as cautious as the playoff-bound Saints. Washington has an impressive combination of size and speed, but he's never displayed much value on offense, primarily working as a short-yardage specialist or mop-up player while averaging just 2.8 yards on 126 career carries.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: Effective in mop-up duty
    By RotoWire Staff

    Washington gained 47 yards on 11 carries in Sunday's win against the Bengals. Washington, who signed with the Saints in September, had been playing exclusively on special teams prior to Sunday, and all of his touches in Cincinnati came in the fourth quarter after the Saints had built a huge lead. Washington is third on the team's running back depth chart, but absent an injury to Mark Ingram or Alvin Kamara, he remains off the fantasy radar in most leagues.
