Washington rushed for seven yards on three carries and lost a fumble in Sunday's 40-33 loss to the Chiefs.
Washington earned a minuscule six offensive snaps and was ineffective during his limited action with an average of 2.3 yards per carry. Meanwhile, fellow running backs Doug Martin and Jalen Richard combined for 193 yards of total offense on 29 touches. Washington's role figures to remain restricted in Week 14 against a Steelers defense that has done a solid job of holding opposing backfields in check.
Washington rushed for eight yards on three carries and caught his lone target for nine yards in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Ravens.
Washington was dealt a season high 12 carries in the Raiders' Week 11 win over the Cardinals, but saw his role reduced Sunday as starter Doug Martin was able to play through a minor ankle injury. Washington's fantasy value also continues to be limited by pass-catching complement Jalen Richard, who has seen at least four targets in nine straight games. In Week 13, Oakland is slated to host a Chiefs defense that is giving up 5.0 yards per carry.
Washington matched his career-high in rushing attempts (12) during Sunday's victory over Arizona thanks in large part to Doug Martin going down with an ankle injury late in the first half. While Martin isn't expected to be dealing with anything severe, it's possible the veteran may need to miss games, which could set the stage for Washington to serve as Oakland's lead back on early downs in the short term. However, even with a hefty workload potentially on tap, the third-year tailback won't be an advisable fantasy option in Week 12 against a Ravens defense allowing the third-fewest rushing yards per game in 2018.
Washington rushed 12 times for 39 yards in Sunday's 23-21 win over the Cardinals.
Active for just the fourth time in 2018, Washington doubled up his rushing attempts total from his prior three appearances. The increased workload was owed almost entirely to starting tailback Doug Martin sitting out the entire second half with an ankle injury, with scatback Jalen Richard (11 carries, three receptions) also benefiting from a spike in touch total as well. Per Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Martin is scheduled to undergo further evaluation Monday, which should shed light on his availability for the Raiders' next game Week 12 against the Ravens. If the injury forces Martin to miss time, Washington would have a good shot at maintaining a double-digit carry count, though as the more dynamic runner and pass catcher, Richard would likely be the more appealing fantasy commodity of the two healthy backs.
Washington rushed for 27 yards on five carries during Thursday's 34-3 loss to the 49ers.
Suiting up for just the second time this season, Washington increased his carry total from one to five on Thursday. With Marshawn Lynch on IR, Washington figures to be the second ball carrier behind Doug Martin while Jalen Richard serves as the scatback. A handful of carries without much action in the passing game probably doesn't provide much value on a free-falling Oakland team, even against a middle-of-the-pack Chargers run defense Sunday.
