Scouting report

WAS QB Colt McCoy - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. New England Patriots

When asked Wednesday about his plan at quarterback, Jay Gruden responded, "We don't have one." When asked Thursday about his plan, Gruden once again had no answer. Case Keenum is hurt, Dwayne Haskins played poorly in Week 4 and Colt McCoy is surprisingly still in the league. It probably doesn't matter who is starting at QB, though, as this is a bad offense going up arguably the best defense in the league. If McCoy does start, he's not worth fantasy consideration.

WAS QB Colt McCoy - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Philadelphia Eagles

You have a crucial match this week in either your fantasy playoffs or the last week of your fantasy regular season. You see Colt McCoy on your waiver wire. Leave Colt McCoy on your waiver wire. The Eagles may be 20th in aFPA, but Washington has an implied team total of 19.5, bottom five on the Week 13 slate. McCoy had three interceptions in his first start. Stay away.

WAS QB Colt McCoy - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Dallas Cowboys (Thanksgiving)

Colt McCoy takes over at quarterback for the rest of the season for Washington and is a back-up the franchise has invested in to keep around for five years now at a healthy second-string QB salary of $3 million per year. So there is trust in McCoy. However, there is real football confidence and fantasy football confidence. McCoy doesn't fall into the latter in a game with the second lowest total on the Week 12 slate, with Washington having an implied team total under 17 points. It also doesn't help that McCoy's weapons have been depleted as the season has gone on, with Paul Richardson already on IR and Jamison Crowder still not practicing.

WAS QB Colt McCoy - Week 15, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 - McCoy vs. NY Giants

Colt McCoy threw for 199 yards last week but didn't have a TD and threw two INTs on top of it against a red-hot Rams defense.

On the final play of the game, McCoy suffered a neck injury. It came out Tuesday the injury isn't all that serious and it's a matter McCoy just being able to play through it. It's not a bad matchup against the Giants who are 22nd in allowing fantasy points to QBs. But the entire Washington offense is a big risk and McCoy is certainly no lock to play. However it sounds like if he can go, he will start. It's something to monitor if you're planning to play McCoy this week.

WAS QB Colt McCoy - Week 14, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 - McCoy vs. St. Louis

Colt McCoy was a surprise starter last week against the Colts as Robert Griffin III was benched. McCoy finished with really nice fantasy numbers: 392 yards and three TDs with no INTs along with 12 rushing yards. The Colts jumped out to a lead so McCoy and company needed to play catch-up much of this game.

This week, the Skins host the Rams who are coming off a shutout of the Raiders. The Rams are in the middle of the pack, 14th, in allowing fantasy points to QBs, but McCoy is pretty far down our list at 23rd, making him more of a QB3 in typical 10-team leagues. Despite his success last week, McCoy is a risky start outside of deeper, QB2 leagues. McCoy does finish the season with the Giants, Eagles, and Cowboys so it's a fairly favorable schedule.

WAS QB Colt McCoy - Week 13, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 - McCoy vs. Indy
Colt McCoy gets back under center this week for the Redskins as they travel to Indy. McCoy ranks way down our list but the potential is there for him to pick up some garbage stats as this game could very well get out of hand and Washington could be playing from behind. Still, we don't have a lot of confidence he's going to end up helping your fantasy team.

WAS QB Colt McCoy - Week 9, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 - McCoy vs. Minnesota
Colt McCoy led the Skins to a surprise win over Dallas last week. He threw an INT, but completed 25-of-30 for 299 yards and added a rushing TD.

It wasn't a great matchup for McCoy against the Cowboys, and this week's isn't much better against the Vikings, who are third in allowing fantasy points to QBs. Robert Griffin III comes back for this game so it appears McCoy has been pushed to a backup role.
