With Dustin Hopkins headed to injured reserve with a hip injury, Washington will sign kicker Nick Rose, via Mike Garafolo of NFL Media.
Rose has never kicked in a regular-season game.
According to the rest of the story, Rose has a big leg, having led the country in touchback rate in 2014 at Texas and finishing third in 2015. But Rose was inconsistent on field goals and PATs. He missed three extra points in his two years as the Longhorns’ primary place kicker and missed four field goals of less than 39 yards in his career.
WAS K Dustin Hopkins - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Here are the point totals for the Washington offense over the past four games: 13, 16, 16 and 16. With a home match-up, Vegas is being "generous" this week with an implied team total of 17.75 points. With a fourth-string quarterback at the helm, this is not an offense to rely on for fantasy production in Week 17. This is a team that's just trying to stay competitive via its defense and special teams.
