Washington Redskins Fantasy Spin
Interim coach Bill Callahan declined to name a starting QB Monday. Here we go again. Callahan did at least specify that Dwayne Haskins isn't a candidate to start right now. That leaves us with Case Keenum (foot) and Colt McCoy ahead of this week's matchup against the Dolphins. McCoy averaged a pathetic 4.4 YPA in the team's Week 5 loss to the Patriots, while Keenum was pulled in Week 4 after missing several wide-open receivers and failing to move the ball against the Giants. The only viable fantasy option in this offense at the moment is Terry McLaurin.
Miami Dolphins Fantasy Spin
Coach Brian Flores said Monday that he's "optimistic" that WR Albert Wilson (calf) will play in Week 6 against the Redskins. The Dolphins have a Week 5 bye. Wilson played just six snaps in Week 1 before exiting with a calf injury, but he saw four targets on those plays. He'll slide into the slot between DeVante Parker and Preston Williams once healthy in a potential high-volume role. Still, the upside of anyone involved in the Dolphins' league-worst scoring offense is limited.
