Redskins QB Alex Smith connecting early with WR Jamison Crowder

Washington Post - [Full Article]

If there’s a competition in the wide receivers room to become Alex Smith’s favorite target, Jamison Crowder has taken the early lead.

The slot receiver has been open throughout training camp, and he and his quarterback seem to have developed some quick chemistry. Smith has finished in the top 10 in the NFL in completion percentage the past four seasons, including third in 2017 at 67.5 percent. In other words, he will find the open man, and Crowder has been that guy.

Fantasy Impact:

Smith always has been adept at working the intermediate and underneath routes—the crossing routes and outs at which Crowder specializes. The 5-foot-9, 177-pounder isn’t running many go-routes, the story said.

Scouting Report

Week 10 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Let's check in on the Washington offense as they begin the second half of their season: 25th in total offense, 25th in scoring offense and 24th in passing offense. That does not inspire confidence, but the match-up does, as Tampa Bay is dead last in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks at over 25 per game. Smith put up a decent floor performance in a similar great match-up last week, and we think he's a viable streamer against the Bucs, since every other QB against them this year has been. All but one opposing QB scored 20+ points, and that one was Nick Foles for 15+ points.
