Fred Davis Week 12 Fantasy Update: Washington Redskins' Tight End Has Solid Day

Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis had a bounce-back performance against the Seattle Seahawks after posting several poor fantasy football efforts over the past couple weeks. Davis ended up catching four passes for 58 yards and a touchdown, which was good for just under 12 fantasy points in most league formats.

Most of Davis' production came on the Redskins' first drive, which also featured his touchdown and wacky dance. As far as catches and targets, Davis didn't get a ton more than he did in previous weeks. The major difference was the touchdown, which came when he broke away from a Seahawks defender and had an easy catch for the score.

Rex Grossman Week 12 Fantasy Update: Washington Redskins' QB Has Strong Day

Rex Grossman probably wasn't in the lineup for many fantasy football teams, but those owners who started him were rewarded with a very strong performance, all things considering. Grossman ended up putting up strong fantasy stats, throwing for 314 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Redskins' 23-17 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

In standard leagues, that is anywhere between 16 and 20 points, depending on how many yards one gets for a passing touchdown. Few expected Grossman to pick up those kinds of numbers, but with the return of wide receiver Santana Moss and the re-emergence of tight end Fred Davis, Grossman was able to prove he can help your fantasy team if you have a starter on a bye.

Roy Helu Week 12 Fantasy Update: Redskins Running Back Sets Career High In Seattle

Washington Redskins rookie running back Roy Helu established a career high on Sunday afternoon against the Seattle Seahawks. Helu started this month by breaking Art Monk's single game receptions record, and he ended the month by rushing for 108 yards on 23 carries. It marked the first time in his young career he broke the century mark. One of those carries was a dynamic 28 yard touchdown run that featured Helu hurdling an oncoming Seattle tackler - a run that will likely be his highlight of the year

In addition to the 108 yards on the ground, Helu also had seven catches for 54 yards in the air. He was targeted by Rex Grossman seven times and converted each time the ball was thrown his way. Fantasy owners have to be pleased with Helu's career day on the ground and productive day catching the ball out of the backfield.

Redskins Vs. Seahawks: Washington Ends Losing Streak With Fourth Quarter Comeback To Beat Seattle, 23-17

The Washington Redskins traveled to the Pacific Northwest and ended their six game losing streak on Sunday afternoon. It was was the Skins first win since October 2nd. Two huge touchdowns rallied the Skins from a ten point fourth quarter deficit. Roy Helu's 28 yard touchdown run was likely the run of the year for Washington, as he hurdled an oncoming Seahawk defender and bursted down the left side for a touchdown. Helu had a career high rushing day, gaining 108 yards on 23 carries, but his touchdown run should be his highlight of the year.

The Redskins would take the lead with six and half minutes remaining when Rex Grossman hit Anthony Armstrong for a 50 yard touchdown pass. After a solid performance last week against Dallas, Grossman had another productive day completing 26 of 35 attempts for 314 yards. In addition to the bomb to Armstrong, Grossman also connected with Fred Davis on a short two yard touchdown in the first quarter.

Up three, the Skins defense shut down the Seahawks on their final two possessions. Seattle turned it over on downs when both Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan closed on quarterback Tavaris Jackson for a fourth down sack. With the ball deep in Seattle territory, the Skins would run the clock down and settle for a Graham Gano field goal to extend their lead to six. Seattle's final desperation drive ended when DeAngelo Hall, last week's goat, intercepted a Jackson pass. It was his second pick of the season and sealed the 23-17 win for the Skins.

Redskins Vs. Seahawks Score Update: Anthony Armstrong Touchdown Gives Washington 20-17 Lead

The Washington Redskins have improbably rallied to take the lead against the Seattle Seahawks. Facing a third and 19 from midfield, Rex Grossman lofted it up into the end zone, and Anthony Armstrong somehow came down with it for the touchdown to give the Redskins a 20-17 lead. The Redskins' extra-point attempt was blocked, which may end up being costly later in the game.

The Redskins were backed up to midfield after Grossman was called for intentional grounding on second down. But Armstrong came up with a huge play on the ensuing possession, outleaping the Seahawks' defender for the score. The play was the longest pass play for the season for Washington.

Redskins Vs. Seahawks Score Update: Roy Helu Touchdown Features Hurdle, Cuts Seattle Lead To 17-14

The Redskins aren't going quietly. Washington has responded to the Seattle score by having a touchdown drive of their own, pulling to within 17-14 of the Seahawks. This one a six play, 70-yard series that lasted nearly three minutes, ending with a nifty 28-yard Roy Helu rushing touchdown where the rookie runner hurdled a Seattle defender on the way to the endzone.


With just under ten minutes to go in the fourth quarter, the Redskins have plenty of time to score once more and potentially end their six game losing streak.

Now it will be up to the struggling Redskins defense to get the key fourth quarter stop.

Redskins Vs. Seahawks Score Update: Golden Tate Touchdown Gives Seahawks 17-7 Lead

In a game that hasn't featured much offense, the Seattle Seahawks may have just taken an insurmountable 10-point lead over the Washington Redskins. The Seahawks completed an 88-yard drive early in the fourth quarter when Tavaris Jackson found Golden Tate over the middle for a 15-yard touchdown pass. The Seahawks now lead, 17-7, with 12:45 left in the game.

The drive was a very bad one for the Redskins' secondary. At different points, DeAngelo Hall, LaRon Landry and Oshiomogho Atogwe missed tackles, allowing the Seahawks to pick up extra yards. On the touchdown, Tate easily beat Hall on the post pattern for the touchdown. Atogwe was also late to help out over the top.

Redskins Vs. Seahawks Score Update: Seahawks Take 10-7 Lead After Third Quarter

After a first half that saw good offensive ball movement, the third quarter slowed to a crawl. Neither the Washington Redskins or the Seattle Seahawks moved the ball particularly well, and the only scoring came on a 36-yard field goal from Seahawks kicker Steven Hauschka to give Seattle a 10-7 lead.

Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman threw his second interception on a deep route to Santana Moss. Moss was heavily covered on the play, with three Seahawks defenders surrounding him. The running game looked strong for Washington in the first half, though running back Roy Helu has not had many chances in the second half.

The Washington defense continues to play well, limiting Seattle quarterback Tarvaris Jackson to under 80 yards passing and under 40 percent completion rate. Seattle's leading receiver for the game, Doug Baldwin, only has three catches for 25 yards through three quarters. The Seahawk offense relies heavily on running back Marshawn Lynch for explosive plays and to gain yardage. Lynch has 100 yards on the ground for the Seahwaks through three quarters and the lone Seahawks touchdown.

Sidney Rice Injury: Seattle Seahawks' WR Leaves Game Vs. Redskins With Head Injury, Will Not Return

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice, the team's top threat on the outside, has left the game against the Washington Redskins with an apparent head injury, and he will not return. The injury occurred when Rice was hit by two Redskins defenders when going for an intended pass by quarterback Tavaris Jackson. He was helped off the field and taken back to the locker room for tests.

Rice's absence should make things easier on the Redskins' defensive backs. Doug Baldwin and Mike Williams will likely get the majority of the looks on the outside. Both players are capable wideouts, but Rice is the much scarier threat, so the Seahawks will feel his absence.

Laron Landry Injury Update: Washington Redskins' Safety Returns To Game Vs. Seahawks

Washington Redskins' safety LaRon Landry has returned to the game against the Seattle Seahawks after missing nearly a quarter of action with a groin injury. Landry was taken out of the game early in the second quarter, but returned to the field midway through the Seahawks' first series of the third quarter.

Landry had left the game in the second quarter when he was victimized by a cut block on Marshawn Lynch's 20-yard touchdown reception. Landry went to the trainer's table for a while and emerged late from the halftime tunnel wearing pads. He eventually went back in the game a few plays into the Seahawks' opening drive, which ended when Steven Hauschka missed a 51-yard field goal.

Redskins Vs. Seahawks Score Update: Teams Tied At 7 At Halftime Of Chippy Game

The Washington Redskins offense continued to move the ball in the second quarter, but turnovers and special team miscues kept the team from scoring. Quarterback Rex Grossman threw his first interception of the game and the Seattle Seahawks quickly converted the error into a touchdown. That was the only score of the quarter, and the two teams, who have fought all game after the whistle, are tied at seven at halftime.

The Redskins have doubled the offensive production of Seattle, though Grossman's interception and a blocked Graham Gano field goal allowed the Seahawks to be tied on the scoreboard. Gano's blocked kick came after a long Redskins drive stalled out in the Seattle red zone.

Seattle's touchdown came when quarterback Tarvaris Jackson found running back Marshawn Lynch for what looked like a quick screen play. Lynch turned on his speed and made the Redskins tacklers miss, dancing 20 yards for the touchdown.

LaRon Landry Injury: Washington Redskins' Safety Suffers Groin Injury, Return Vs. Seahawks Questionable

The Washington Redskins may have to play the remainder of their game against the Seattle Seahawks without strong safety LaRon Landry. Landry's injury woes have continued, as he left the game with a groin injury. The Redskins are saying his return to the field is questionable.

The injury took place on Marshawn Lynch's 20-yard touchdown reception to tie the game at seven in the second quarter. Landry was hit with a cut block up the field, taking him out of the play and allowing Lynch to walk into the end zone. He stayed on the ground after the game and was taken over to the trainer's table.

Oshiomogho Atogwe will replace Landry in the lineup. Reed Doughty, who started at free safety, has moved to strong safety. Atogwe is the free safety.

Redskins Vs. Seahawks Score Update: Marshawn Lynch Touchdown Ties Game At 7

Rex Grossman's penchant for throwing costly interceptions has reared its ugly head again for the Washington Redskins. Grossman was picked off by Brandon Browner deep in the Redskins' own territory, and one play later, Tavaris Jackson found Marshawn Lynch for a screen pass and a 20-yard touchdown to tie the game at 7.

Grossman was trying to force the ball to Jabar Gaffney, but the taller Browner stepped in front and picked off the pass. On the touchdown, Jackson swung it out to Lynch, and the Seahawks blockers took care of the rest. Safety LaRon Landry was cleared out with a cut block, allowing Lynch to score. It's the seventh straight game he has scored a touchdown.

Redskins Vs. Seahawks Score Update: Rex Grossman Is Near-Perfect, Washington Leads, 7-0, After First Quarter

Offensively, the Washington Redskins may have played their best first quarter of the season. From the opening kick, the Redskins offensive unit has dictated the pace and movement of the game, marching to a 7-0 lead over the Seattle Seahawks with more than 150 yards in total offense and eight first downs.

Redskin quarterback Rex Grossman looked like a star, completing about 90 percent of his passes for 118 yards and a touchdown. Grossman repeatedly connected with tight end Fred Davis, including a two-yard touchdown catch. Davis hauled in three catches for more than 50 yards to go with the touchdown. 

Rookie running back Roy Helu, starting the first game of his NFL career, looks electric. Through the first quarter, Helu combined for more than 50 yards between the air and on the ground. Veteran Santana Moss caught a pass after missing the last month with a hand injury.

Redskins Vs. Seahawks Score Update: Redskins (Finally) Strike First, Lead Seahawks 7-0 In First Quarter

For the first time in a long time, the Redskins strike first. Washington has taken a 7-0 lead over Seattle early in the first quarter as Rex Grossman found tight end Fred Davis for the two yard score. It was the first time all season that the Redskins have been able to score a touchdown on it's first possession. The last time they scored on their opening possession was on November 28th of last season.

The offense looks like it's been able to continue the positive momentum that began in last week's game against the Cowboys. Grossman was 8/9 on the drive for 79 yards while distributing the ball to four different receivers. Rookie Roy Helu rushed for 16 yards on five rushes.

For the Redskins offense, starting the game off was a must. It's been a problem for them during their six game losing streak. 

Now that they have the early lead, we'll see if the defense is up to the task of maintaining it.

Redskins Vs. Seahawks: Roy Helu Starting At Running Back For Washington

At long last, Roy Helu will get his chance to be the Washington Redskins' starting running back. Helu was the guy who trotted out behind Rex Grossman for the Redskins' first series against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, and he has already made his mark with a screen pass early in the game.

It's Helu's first start of his NFL career, and it comes after he was not listed as the starter despite being a far better runner than incumbent Ryan Torain. Whether this means Helu will get the bulk of the carries remains to be seen, but it's certainly a good sign for Helu fantasy owners that he has finally been trusted with the starting position.

Fred Davis Week 12 Fantasy Projection: Redskins Tight End Looks To Continue Productive Season In Seattle

While he has only found the end zone twice this season, Fred Davis is among the top twenty pass-catchers in the league in total yards coming into the Redskins Week 12 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. Davis caught six balls last week, which is right around his season average. 

For fantasy owners of Davis, NumberFire.com projects the Skins' tight end to have 6.51 fantasy points in Week 12. He's projected to be in the top ten among tight ends, in terms of Week 12 fantasy production. Rex Grossman is coming off his best game since Week 2, so Davis owners have to pray and hope the Skins' quarterback will keep it rolling and distribute the ball in the Pacific Northwest on Sunday afternoon.

Roy Helu Week 12 Fantasy Projection: Best To Avoid Washington Redskins' RB

The Washington Redskins square off against the Seattle Seahawks, and fantasy running back Roy Helu isn't expected to get very much done. According to numberFire, if you have a better option than Helu on your bench, you should consider playing him. This is what Helu is expected to do according to numberFire:

7.42 car, 29.12 yds, 1.34 rec for 9.56 yds, 0.24 TDs for 5.27 pts

The Seahawks currently rank eighth against the run, giving up just 100 yards per game on the run. Not only do they give up only 100 yards a game, but the Seahawks defense has only given up four runs of 20 yards or more, the longest allowed being just 32 yards.

Rex Grossman Week 12 Fantasy Projection: Trip To Pacific Northwest Could Be Rough For Washington QB

The Washington Redskins (3-7) head to CenturyLink Field Sunday afternoon to face the Seattle Seahwaks (4-6), hoping to end a six game losing streak. The Redskins and quarterback Rex Grossman had their best game since the streak began last Sunday, but ultimately fell 27-24 to the Dallas Cowboys in overtime. Grossman was 25 of 38 for 292 yards and two touchdowns.

As for this week's matchup against the Seahawks, the fantasy football projection site numberFire ranks Grossman as just the 22nd best play at quarterback this week. The Washington quarterback's projected stats: 22.86/34.97, 184.15 yds, 1.34 TDs, 0.83 INTs for 11.91 points.

Seattle's defense has been surprisingly stout in the last two contests, allowing just 24 combined points in wins over the Baltimore Ravens and St. Louis Rams. With the Redskins run game struggling, Seattle may be able to tee off on the mistake-prone Grossman, leading to his diminished fantasy expectations.

Redskins Vs. Seahawks: Game Time, TV Schedule, Radio Streaming And More

The Washington Redskins will look to get back in the win column on Sunday when they travel to the Pacific Northwest to take on the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle has come on strong recently, winning two straight games to move to 4-6 on the season. Throw in the cross-country trip and the prospect of playing in one of the toughest road venues in football, and this is going to be a tough task for Washington.

Seattle has rode its defense to wins over the powerful Baltimore Ravens and lowly St. Louis Rams in the last two weeks. They certainly will make it tough for a lagging Redskins offense to get on track. The Redskins did show some signs of life offensively in their 27-24 overtime loss to the Cowboys. The hope in D.C. is that the momentum will carry over into this week's game.

Here is everything you need to know about the game.

Teams: Washington Redskins vs. Seattle Seahawks

Location: Qwest Field in Seattle, Washington.

Time: 4:15 p.m.

Seahawks Injury Report, Week 12: Seattle Sees Key Players Practice Fully Friday

The Washington Redskins face a tough road test on Sunday afternoon when they try to snap the six-game losing streak that's seens them fall from first to worst in the NFC East. The Redskins face the Seahawks at Century Link Field in Seattle, one of the NFL's very best home field advantages. The Seahawks have won two in a row to improve to 4-6, and appear to be in good shape injury wise heading into Week 12 as they try to inch back towards .500.

On Thursday, Tavaris Jackson practiced fully as he continues to fight through a pectoral injury. Jackson got good news on Friday when two of his weapons on the perimeter -- WR Ben Obomanu (knee, ankle) and WR Sidney Rice (knee) -- both practiced fully. Rice had sat out on Thursday's practice. All three are listed as probable for Sunday afternoon's game against Washington.

S Atari Bigby (hamstring) and DT Tony Hargrove (hamstring) were on the injury report all week but were able to practice all week.  DT Alan Branch (ankle) and CB Byron Maxwell (ankle) were both unable to practice all week, but have not officially been ruled out due to the day-to-day nature of their minor injuries.

Washington Redskins Injury Report, Week 12: Trent Williams, Santana Moss Are Expected To Play Against Seattle

Washington Redskins left tackle Trent Williams is among the nine injured Redskins whom the team has listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. Williams, who has a strained MCL in his knee, will start. He injured himself in the Redskins' 27-24 loss to the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday while blocking on Graham Gano's would-be game-winning field goal, which the kicker pushed wide right.

In addition, top wide receiver Santana Moss is expected to return to the lineup after missing four games due to a broken hand. Despite playing in just six games in 2011, Moss ranks No. 3 among Redskins in receiving yards (301), No. 4 in receptions (25), and No. 2 in touchdown catches (2). Tight end Fred Davis leads the team in receptions and yardage.

Moss' fellow wide receivers aren't quite as healthy. Washington lists Niles Paul and Donte Stallworth as questionable for Sunday's matchup with Seattle due to turf toe and a foot injury, respectively. Paul, a rookie from Nebraska, has two catches for 25 yards this season, while Stallworth has nine receptions for 97 yards and a score.

The other hobbled Redskins who are nonetheless probable for Sunday: right tackle Jammal Brown, linebacker Keyaron Fox, safety DeJon Gomes, left guard Maurice Hurt, safety LaRon Landry, tackle Sean Locklear, and cornerback Josh Wilson.

All things considered, this week is shaping up to be Washington's healthiest in recent memory, but we won't know until Sunday whether that good fortune on the injury front will lead to the Redskins ending their six-game losing streak.

Seahawks Injury Report Week 12: Sidney Rice Missing From Practice

The Redskins got some good news, with wide receiver Santana Moss returning to practice in full and is expected to play, returning from his hand injury.

Santana Moss Injury Update: Washington Redskins' WR Likely To Return Vs. Seahawks

Washington Redskins wideout Santana Moss, out for the last four games with a broken left hand, practiced in full Wednesday and will return to the lineup Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, barring any setbacks, according to Rick Maese of the Washington Post. Moss told reporters "I feel like my hand is ready," notes Rich Campell.

Moss suffered the injury against the Carolina Panthers on Oct. 23 and had to leave the game. He underwent surgery the next day and initially announced a recovery timetable of three-to-six weeks, so returning against Seattle would put him right on schedule.

Moss, a one-time Pro Bowler, has 25 catches for 301 yards this season, with two touchdowns. His return would likely lower the workload of tight end Fred Davis, the team's leading receiver, and make Washington's offense at least a touch more dynamic.
