New York Giants Fantasy Spin
Daniel Jones (ankle) will start Week 16 against the Redskins. It took Jones two week to recover from a sprained ankle. Eli Manning will resume clipboard duties following last week's win over the Dolphins in what was likely his final NFL appearance. Jones beat the Redskins when he faced them in Week 4, though he only threw for 225 yards while also committing a pair of interceptions. Fantasy owners in super-flex and two-quarterback leagues can give him a whirl this week.
Washington Redskins Fantasy Spin
Dwayne Haskins completed 19-of-28 passes for 261 yards and two touchdowns in Week 15 against the Eagles. Haskins showed no ill-effects from last week’s ankle injury. He did most of his damage in the first half, throwing for 178 of his yards and both of his touchdowns. The Redskins also featured Haskins outside the pocket, using him on a pair of screen options, with one resulting in a 23-yard run. This was the most productive game of the season for Haskins, who has fewer than one TD in 4-of-6 starts. Haskins will have a chance to take another step forward with a Week 16 matchup against the Giants.
