DeAndre Washington :: WASH
(10/5/16) DeAndre Washington is now set to start Week 5, as Latavius Murray (toe) is very questionable to play Week 5. Washington is not only a must-own right now, he very well might be the future in Oakland. The cons: He has never carried the ball more than 7 times in one game this year, which is his rookie year, but his yards-per-carry average is 6.4. In Week 4, he rushed the ball 5 times for 3 yards and pulled in 3 passes for 16, which is a great sign that he can funtion as a three-down back if called upon. I think the Raiders want someone to rise in this offense to help keep the passing game going strong, as teams will look to make the Raiders run the football in the coming weeks. And, I think they will successfully behind Washington, who stands 5-8, 204 pounds. Each year a player rises from low-type value and becomes a beast… I believe it could very well be one of DeAndre Washington, Wendell Smallwood or Jordan Howard!
