  • Posted: 9/17/2018 7:45pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine is expected to be the third active running back on game day while RB Rob Kelley (toe) is sidelined.

    Huddle Up: Kelley is nursing a toe injury and might be sidelined at least a month, so Perine will get a chance to show what he can do. However, he still has Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson ahead of him, so Perine's roll will be rather limited. Perine is still not worth using in most fantasy leagues unless Peterson or Thompson go down, too.

  • Posted: 8/2/2018 7:47pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley said he is playing faster now that his weight is down to 221 pounds this season.

    Huddle Up: Kelley's spot on the roster isn't set in stone, which probably has a lot to do with his leaner frame. If he does make the team, he will be a backup with little value in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/1/2018 7:22pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley has performed very well during the early part of training camp, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Kelley is probably competing with Samaje Perine for a spot on the roster, so Kelley will need to perform well in the preseason to make the team. He probably would be a backup if he makes the team and should be avoided in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 6/27/2018 5:07pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley has been the first running back to go through individual drills with running backs coach Randy Jordan during the first two weeks of organized team activities. He's also taken a majority of the reps at running back with the first-team offense.

    Huddle Up: Kelley appeared to be on the verge of breaking out following a solid rookie campaign in 2016 before injuries limited him to seven games a year ago. With a logjam in the Washington backfield, it's best to wait and see how the workload will be split up during training camp.

  • Posted: 11/14/2017 2:21pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle, knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 14.

    Huddle Up: Chris Thompson will continue to be Washington's most valuable fantasy running back, but Samaje Perine will now have a more substantial role in the offense. He hasn't done much with the opportunities he's been given this season, but he deserves to be added off waivers nonetheless.

  • Posted: 11/13/2017 12:23pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle, knee) might be placed on the Reserve/Injured list after suffering a high-ankle sprain and a medial collateral ligament sprain in Week 10. Kelley will at least miss multiple games.

    Huddle Up: An already forgettable season becomes even more forgettable for the sophomore running back. With Kelley sidelined for the foreseeable future, Samaje Perine stands to take over running duties, but Chris Thompson remains Washington's most valuable running back. Pick up Perine off waivers if he's available.

  • Posted: 11/13/2017 9:42am ET

    Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle, knee) suffered a high ankle sprain and a sprained medial collateral ligament in his knee in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Both injuries could keep him out six weeks or more. Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson will split the load, with Thompson mostly in on passing downs. Both are worth owning and make matchup plays as a flex option.

  • Posted: 11/12/2017 10:39am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle, knee) suffered ankle and knee injuries in Week 10 and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see how long Kelley may be sidelined because of the injuries. Samaje Perine could receive most of the carries if Kelley misses extended playing time and could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 8:45pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley rushed 14 times for 18 yards in the Week 9 game against the Seattle Seahawks, but he was able to score twice.

    Huddle Up: Kelley didn't have a great average, but fantasy owners can't complain about two scores, including the game-winner in the fourth quarter. He remains an RB3 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 10 against the visiting Vikings.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 5:35am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle) is expected to play in Week 9's game against the Seattle Seahawks, although his workload will be limited.

    Huddle Up: Kelley was a limited practice participant during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He will face a tough Seattle defense and will split carries with Chris Thompson, so owners should look for better fantasy options.

  • Posted: 11/3/2017 5:16pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 3, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Kelley probably will be able to play this week and will share playing time with Chris Thompson. He will be facing a solid Seattle Seahawks defense and can be benched if owners have better options to use.

  • Posted: 11/2/2017 2:06pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 2.

    Huddle Up: Kelley likely will be able to play in Week 9 unless he suffers a setback over the next few days. He has been held to under 20 rushing yards in each of the last two games and probably can be avoided if owners have better options.

  • Posted: 11/1/2017 2:57pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 1.

    Huddle Up: In the five games Kelley has played in 2017 he has been nearly a non-factor, averaging 33.2 yards in those contests and scoring only once, which was last week. Chris Thompson is the only Washington running back who deserves to be a fantasy starter.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 7:51pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley rushed eight times for 19 yards and a touchdown in a 33-19 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Washington's ground game never gained traction, and it was abandoned in the second half when the Redskins had to play from behind. Kelley did lead the team in carries, but he is a touchdown-dependent flex play.

  • Posted: 10/27/2017 1:57pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle) practiced in full on Friday, Oct. 27, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 8 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Kelley had nine total touches in his return from injury in Monday's game, and you can expect him to see 10-12 touches on average. That's not bad for an RB3, but do not depend on him for much more.

  • Posted: 10/26/2017 3:17pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 26.

    Huddle Up: Kelley shared playing time with Chris Thompson in Week 7 and likely will receive a similar workload this week. He will be facing a solid Dallas Cowboys defense this week and can be benched if owners have better options.

  • Posted: 10/25/2017 1:37pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Oct. 25.

    Huddle Up: Kelley was given just seven carries in his return from injury last week. Unfortunately, he turned those seven carries into a meager 16 yards. He's not a trustworthy starting option versus the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Posted: 10/23/2017 10:13pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley finished with just 16 rushing yards on seven carries -- both season lows -- in the team's Week 7 game Monday, Oct. 23, versus the Philadelphia Eagles. He also caught both of his targets for 14 yards.

    Huddle Up: Once again, the 25-year-old was outplayed by teammate Chris Thompson, who has emerged as the running back to own from Washington's backfield. It's not that surprising, as Kelley still has not even scored a touchdown yet in 2017, and has only topped 30 total yards in a game once all season. He shouldn't be started outside the deepest of leagues, and even then, it should only be in a desperate situation.

  • Posted: 10/23/2017 4:41pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle) is officially active for the team's Week 7 game.

    Huddle Up: Kelley probably will be sharing playing with Chris Thompson and Samaje Perine against the Philadelphia Eagles. Kelley should receive a decent amount of touches during the game but is probably not a strong fantasy option against the Eagles.

  • Posted: 10/21/2017 11:41am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ribs) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Kelley is expected to play against the Philadelphia Eagles but will share work with Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson during the game. Owners probably should keep Kelley off the bench because there likely are other options available that will receive more work this week.

  • Posted: 10/20/2017 3:59pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley is expected to start in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles, head coach Jay Gruden said Friday, Oct. 20.

    Huddle Up: While Kelley is expected to be the team's starter, Gruden added that the team will use all active running backs throughout the game, meaning Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson will continue to see regular work, too. It's a three-headed monster which is maddening to fantasy owners, and Kelley's appeal remains rather limited despite the starter designation.

  • Posted: 10/20/2017 2:07pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Friday, Oct. 20.

    Huddle Up: Kelley will have a limited fantasy impact if he is able to play, as the team has relied upon Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson during his absence. It might take a while for Kelley to carve out a larger role for himself, so avoid him in all but the deepest of fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 12:19pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle) put in a limited practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Kelley has, for the most part, been a non-factor this year, whether because of injury or not. Chris Thompson and Samaje Perine have held the fort in Kelley's absence, and held it well. As long as Thompson and Perine are healthy, namely Thompson, it will be difficult for Kelley to gain fantasy traction.
