Player Notes
Nov 26 9:33pm ET

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice led the team with 26 offensive snaps played Sunday, Nov. 24, against the Detroit Lions. Adrian Peterson played 20 offensive snaps while Wendell Smallwood played 16 snaps on offense.

Fantasy Spin: Guice rushed 10 times for just 32 yards and made one six-yard catch. He's averaging just 2.7 yards per carry including his abbreviated Week 1 outing. The overall quality of the Washington offense can take the bulk of the blame, but fantasy managers will want to see at least a few flashes from him to close the season before being able to trust him next year.

Washington Redskins RB Wendell Smallwood rushed for five yards on two carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 9. He also caught two passes for minus two yards.

Fantasy Spin: Smallwood has been filling in for Chris Thompson over the last few weeks but has not been very productive. He likely will return to the bench when Thompson returns and can be avoided in all leagues.

From TheHuddle

Nov 1 12:40pm ET

Washington Redskins running back Wendell Smallwood could be the starter by process of elimination on Sunday if Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson sit. This does not mean he should be seriously considered for fantasy purposes on the road against the Bills, especially if rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins gets the start in place of concussed Case Keenum. This game has disaster written all over it for an already hapless Redskins offense if they're forced to reach down their depth chart at QB and RB. You can safely ignore just about everyone on this team unless Keenum miraculously suits up.

Washington Redskins running back Wendell Smallwood logged 20 total yards on three touches in Thursday night's loss to the Vikings. Adrian Peterson's status wasn't officially known until right before game time when he was declared active, at which point Smallwood's outlook for the Thursday contest grew bleak. Despite Chris Thompson also battling an injury in this hobbled backfield, Smallwood hasn't even inherited a viable pass-catching role. Up next for the Redskins is Buffalo, so Smallwood can be ignored in all formats regardless of Thompson's health heading into Week 9.

Washington Redskins running back Wendell Smallwood might be the starter by default in Thursday night's game at Minnesota. Adrian Peterson is questionable with a high ankle sprain, while Chris Thompson continues to nurse a toe injury that held him out of last week's contest. Considering the short week, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Redskins err on the side of caution regarding Peterson and Thompson. They don't have much to play for, and it wouldn't be worth risking further injury to either if one or both are not at 100% health. If Smallwood does have the backfield to himself, volume doesn't outweigh the unfavorable matchup. The Vikings are giving up 3.8 yards per carry to opposing backs, and have surrendered just one rushing touchdown to the position. Smallwood will have to turn in his fantasy value in the receiving game, which is not worth banking on. He is best avoided unless you find yourself in desperate need of a PPR flex.

Washington Redskins running back Wendell Smallwood received five carries and caught one pass, converting his touches into 41 total yards. The weather in this Week 7 contest ruined any potential Smallwood might've had to excel against a tough 49ers Defense with Chris Thompson out due to injury. The fact that he averaged 6.83 yards per touch despite all the external factors working against him should at least keep his fantasy window slightly open as long as Thompson remains out. His next opponent, should he remain the secondary backfield option, is Minnesota on a short week. There won't be any weather to worry about on the road against the Vikings, but the defensive matchup isn't much friendlier than the one he just dealt with.

Washington Redskins RB Wendell Smallwood rushed for 23 yards on five carries against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7. He also caught one pass for 18 yards during the game.

Fantasy Spin: Smallwood filled in for Chris Thompson on offense and had a decent outing. He likely will have a similar role in Week 8 if Thompson misses another game but probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 18 9:43pm ET

Washington Redskins WR Wendell Smallwood has the ability to handle RB Chris Thompson's (toe) duties on passing downs against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7, according to offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell.

Fantasy Spin: With Thompson sidelined, Smallwood could be headed for the handful of catches and 50-plus total yards typically reserved for Thompson, but he's still just a DFS lottery ticket for fantasy purposes.

From TheHuddle

Oct 18 4:10pm ET

Washington Redskins running back Wendell Smallwood should see a season-high in touches in Week 7 with Chris Thompson out. The downside is that "season-high" could be defined by as few as seven touches, and the team he'll be taking them against is a 49ers Defense that has yet to allow a running back to cross the goal line. If Smallwood inherits the full share of Thompson's passing game workload, it is worth noting that Thompson was averaging seven targets per game in the five contests the Redskins lost. The Redskins are a two-score home underdog this Sunday, bringing about the potential for similar usage for Smallwood. Either way, this is not a player or matchup you should be targeting in fantasy lineups.

Former Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood was claimed off waivers by the Washington Redskins Sunday, Sept. 1, according to a source.

From TheHuddle

Aug 31 6:50pm ET

Running back Wendell Smallwood was waived by the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday. Smallwood was on the outside looking in all preseason since the Eagles beefed up their backfield. He's a decent enough player as a depth piece and should have a job this season at least as a pass catcher out of the backfield.

Aug 31 3:23pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood was waived Saturday, Aug. 31.

Fantasy Spin: Smallwood could land in a situation to be worth an RB5 flyer early in the season. Keep tabs on him.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood rushed seven times for 23 yards and lost a fumble in the final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 29.

Aug 30 12:20am ET

Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood led the Eagles backfield in carries and yards in Thursday's final preseason game. The Eagles were shutout in an ugly 6-0 loss, but Smallwood ran the ball seven times, gaining 23 yards. He lost a fumble and lost a yard on his only reception. Smallwood seems to be on the outside looking in for the final running back spot on the Eagles roster. While it may not be in Philly, Smallwood should be a depth piece on some NFL roster this season. It'll take quite a few injuries for him to have any fantasy value.
