The Washington Football Team played their best defensive game of the season by limiting the San Francisco 49ers to 15 points while registering four sacks and also scoring two defensive touchdowns of their own. Both touchdowns were key to Washington defeating San Francisco because the offense had to settle for three field goals after failing to get into the end zone for the game.
One negative in the game was the injury to Alex Smith, who had to be replaced by Dwayne Haskins Jr. A prolonged injury for Smith would likely be problematic for Washington because they’ve been less effective with Haskins under center this season. Neither quarterback played particularly well on the day, but a late interception thrown by Haskins could’ve allowed San Francisco back in the game.
J.D McKissic was one of the better players on the field for Washington. He averaged 6.2 yards per rush on 11 carries and also caught two passes for 18 yards. If you’re looking to play McKissic in fantasy next week, you’ll want to keep an eye on Antonio Gibson’s status throughout the week. Fantasy players savvy enough to start Logan Thomas picked up 10 points as he finished with six catches for 43 yards.
