Washington rushed for seven yards on three carries and caught two passes for 12 yards on three targets during Sunday's loss to the Patriots.
Washington took a backseat to starter Marshawn Lynch in terms of production by a wide margin in Week 11, as the latter rushed for 67 yards on 11 carries to go along with a 10-yard reception. Washington still managed to log 13 more offensive snaps than fellow backup Jalen Richard, though Richard out-rushed Washington by 12 yards on just one more carry. Expect a similar level of involvement from Washington in Week 12 against a tough Broncos rush defense, which just held the Bengals' Joe Mixon to 49 rushing yards on 20 carries.
Washington rushed for 16 yards on four carries and lost two yards on a reception in Sunday's 27-24 win over Miami.
With Marshawn Lynch ejected from Oakland's Thursday might matchup against the Chiefs and then suspended against Buffalo, Washington enjoyed 26 total touches and scored in each game. If there was much doubt what his role would be with Lynch's return, Sunday answered them as Washington saw the field for just nine offensive snaps. He has some value as a receiver out of the backfield, but hasn't shown the big-play ability he flashed as a rookie in limited touches this season.
Washington rushed for 26 yards on six carries and added 62 yards and a touchdown on eight catches in Sunday's 34-14 loss to Buffalo. He lost a fumble during the contest.
Washington circled out of the backfield for a four-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter, cutting Buffalo's lead to two scores. The diminutive back has now scored in consecutive games, but has had the benefit of having Marshawn Lynch (suspension) out of the lineup on both occasions. The second-year player averaged just five touches per game during the season's first five games and figures to return to a similar scat-back-type role when Lynch returns to the fold next week.
With NFL appeals officer James Thrash upholding Marshawn Lynch's one-game suspension stemming from Lynch's contact with an official in the Week 7 win over the Chiefs, the Raiders appear set to take a tandem approach to the backfield in the absence of their lead back. After Lynch's ejection from the Week 7 contest, Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio distributed the running-back snaps about as evenly as possible, with Washington logging 25 to Richard's 26. The snap total was Washington's highest of the season, with the second-year player supplying 33 yards on nine carries and seven yards on three receptions. Washington will have a fair chance at besting all of those figures in Week 8, but given his mediocre 2.3 yards per carry and 5.3 yards per reception marks for the season, his fantasy upside isn't quite as high as that of Richard, who offers more big-play ability and explosiveness.
Washington rushed nine times for 33 yards and a touchdown and brought in three of four targets for seven yards in Thursday's 31-30 win over the Chiefs.
Washington and backfield mate Jalen Richard drew even in carries on the night following the second-quarter ejection of Marshawn Lynch, but he outperformed Richard on the ground by getting into the end zone for the first time this season. The 24-year-old also logged season highs in carries and rushing yardage, but both he and Richard remain as complementary options for the time being any time that Lynch is helming the backfield.
