Evan Royster questionable for Week 5: Fantasy implications

Rafael Suanes-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Washington Redskins running back Evan Royster is listed as questionable for Week 5. We break down the fantasy implications.

Running back Evan Royster is listed as questionable for Sunday's game because of a knee injury, Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said on Friday. Royster is the backup for rookie Alfred Morris, who has rushed for 376 yards in four games. The Redskins face the Atlanta Falcons in Week 5.

Fantasy Impact: Royster's status is only interesting because it may give the Redskins a chance to use Ryan Grant. The veteran was inactive for Week 4 but has said this week that he expects to have more of a role. Morris, however, remains the clear No. 1 running back in Washington and fantasy owners shouldn't worry too much about Royster or Grant taking away opportunities. Morris is a fringe No. 1 fantasy option at RB on Sunday.
