Redskins RB group gets more crowded

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Redskins just promoted RB Mack Brown off the practice squad.

HC Jay Gruden said last week that he and Rob Kelley were in a close competition at the end of the summer, but they opted for the latter on the opening day roster.

The Redskins say they can mix and match their backs depending on the situation.

Fantasy Impact: 

This isn't great news from a fantasy perspective and we feel the Skins running game takes a fantasy hit if there isn't one clear back. With Brown now possibly in the mix, that makes four. Jones was injured last week and the addition of Brown could mean Jones won't be ready after the team's bye this week, so it's a situation worth monitoring.
