Fantasy Saturday — Will Chiefs Lose Firepower

Fantasy Injury Impact 

Washington at Tampa Bay

Washington’s Decimated Offensive Line

Even with a healthy offensive line, which Washington’s certainly is not, the Redskins offense had to play a certain way. This is a team that can’t afford to get down by multiple scores because they need to run the ball in a very traditional fashion with Adrian Peterson. Alex Smith isn’t a risk taker and this group of receivers is really lackluster. Chris Thompson is also unlikely to play, which not only put more on Peterson’s shoulders but also gives Smith one less weapon to use to keep up with an excellent Buccaneers offense. The Bucs score points on everyone and should do so once again at home in this matchup. As a result, Washington is likely to move away from Peterson sooner than later and even though the Buccaneers defensive line is not a high-end unit, there are some very talented players in the group. Not only is Peterson a poor start this week, but Smith and company are unlikely to rack up fantasy points in the passing game even while trying to keep up with Tampa Bay. The wheels might be off of Washington’s offense.
