John Keim on Twitter - [Full Article]

The Redskins placed running back Rob Kelley on injured reserve. He injured his toe in Sunday's loss to the Colts. This means Samaje Perine will be the third running back behind Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson.

Fantasy Impact:

Kelley must stay on injured reserve for at least eight games.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Derrius Guice is on IR, which means Kelley should get a decent amount of early-down work in this offense. He saw double-digit carries in three of his seven games last season.

Fantasy Downside

Guice may be gone, but this is still a unit that ranked 30th in the NFL in rushing last season. Kelley was given an opportunity last year and did nothing with it. In fact, the satellite back Chris Thompson began taking his snaps. Washington could also opt to bring in competition. Kelley also provides nothing as a pass-catcher out of the backfield, failing to catch a pass in five of his seven games last season.

2018 Bottom Line

Kelley is not the RB to target in drafts this season, already failing multiple times to capitalize on opportunities in the past. He should be a hard pass, despite his reasonable ADP.
