Dwayne Washington | Lions RB

Dwayne Washington (hip) is out today against the Vikings.

This is Washington's second missed game in a row, as he's still dealing with the hip injury from Week 10 against Cleveland. Washington doesn't need to be on fantasy teams right now.

Dwayne Washington | Lions RB

Dwayne Washington caught one pass before leaving with a hip injury in Sunday's win over Cleveland.

The reception went for 10 yards. Washington has battled injuries since coming into the league, and Detroit will roll with Zach Zenner behind Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick if he is out for Week 11 and beyond.

Dwayne Washington | Lions RB

Dwayne Washington gets five carries in Week 9.

Washington worked clearly behind Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick in the game, and he gained only one yard on five carries in a night that the Packers shut down the run. Washington isn't a reliable fantasy option right now.

Dwayne Washington | Lions RB

Dwayne Washington gets seven touches in Week 8.

Washington carried six times for 12 yards and caught one pass for four yards. He was given goal line opportunities, but the Steelers shut them down and didn't allow a touchdown in the game. Washington isn't a reliable fantasy option right now.

Dwayne Washington | Lions RB

Dwayne Washington (quad) will miss his second-straight game this week.

Washington is still dealing with his quad injury from a couple weeks ago, and he did not practice at all this week. He'll try to get healthy for two Sundays from now against the Panthers.

Dwayne Washington | Lions RB

Dwayne Washington (quad) is out for Week 3.

Washington injured his quad during Monday night's win over the Giants, and he'll miss this matchup against Atlanta after not practicing all week. Zach Zenner should fill in for him and be active on game day.

Dwayne Washington | Lions RB

Dwayne Washington (quad) leaves MNF and is questionable to return.

Washington appeared to hurt his quad on offense and then he appeared to aggravate it on special teams. It doesn't look like he'll be retuning to the game, but he hasn't officially been ruled out yet. He had three carries for nine yards before leaving.

Dwayne Washington | Lions RB

Dwayne Washington rushed six times for 22 yards on Sunday.

Washington was the clear backup to Ameer Abdullah, and was given a red zone carry in the season opener. Abdullah only had 30 yards on 15 carries, but he will lead the backfield for as long as he's healthy. Washington isn't a recommended fantasy option in Week 2 against the Giants' stout defense.

Dwayne Washington | Lions RB

Dwayne Washington scores twice in Lions' third preseason game.

Washington had seven carries for 15 yards and a touchdown, while adding two receptions for 26 yards and a touchdown receiving. The touchdown reception was an 18-yarder that came with the first team on a check down from Matthew Stafford, so that's a good sign. It'd be a surprise if Washington wasn't on Detroit's final roster.

Dwayne Washington | Lions RB

Dwayne Washington leads Detroit in rushing yards on Saturday night.

It was a low-scoring exhibition, so Washington rushed eight times for just 24 yards. He had a 10-yard rush, but could only gain 14 yards on his other seven carries. Washington again played behind Zach Zenner, who got some run with the first-team offense.

Dwayne Washington | Lions RB

Dwayne Washington leads Lions in rushing in Week 1 of the preseason.

The second-year back from Washington had six carries for 34 yards, including a long of 18 yards. Lions running backs coach David Walker talked up Washington's progress recently. He's battling for carries behind starter Ameer Abdullah.

Washington takes backseat to Zach Zenner in MNF loss.

Dwayne Washington rushed seven times for 22 yards and caught a four-yard pass as the Lions fell to the Cowboys in Dallas. Zenner is the superior player and will be the top fantasy play in the Detroit backfield for Week 17 against the Packers.

Dwayne Washington | Lions RB

Dwayne Washington rushed 14 times for 31 yards in the Lions' loss to the Giants.

Getting the start for Theo Riddick (wrist), Washington also caught two passes for nine yards. The Lions could only score six points on Sunday, and a lack of running game was a big reason why. Even if Riddick is out again next Monday night, Washington isn't a good fantasy option against Dallas.

Dwayne Washington | Lions RB

Dwayne Washington rushed 16 times for 64 yards in Sunday's win over the Bears.

He also caught a pass for 10 yards. Washington had a big role after Theo Riddick (wrist) was a surprise inactive on Sunday. Plus, Zach Zenner (concussion) was forced from the game. Washington could find himself as the starting running back with a big role this week against the Giants, but will be no better than a FLEX play.

Dwayne Washington | Lions RB

Washington rushed seven times for 21 yards and caught two passes for 19 yards before leaving Sunday's game with an ankle injury.

Zach Zenner (nine carries for 40 yards) was more effective. Washington shouldn't be owned in fantasy leagues.

Dwayne Washington | Lions RB

Washington held in check for second straight week.

He had five carries for 19 yards. Washington doesn't need to be owned in fantasy leagues.

Dwayne Washington | Lions RB

Dwayne Washington averages under 0.5 yards per carry against Jacksonville.

Washington had 13 carries for six yards. He also had two catches for 15 yards. The Lions run game isn’t good enough for him to be a fantasy option. He can stay on the waiver wire.
