2020 Fantasy Outlook
Despite the addition of Josh Jacobs to the Raiders' backfield last year, Washington set career highs in carries and receptions as he split the No. 2 RB role with Jalen Richard. Most of that action came in the final month of the season as Jacobs nursed a shoulder injury, and Washington accumulated 52 percent of his yards on the year during the final four games. Slightly undersized for an NFL lead back, the Texas Tech product has a three-down skill set and good speed in the open field, making him a solid complementary option. The move to Kansas City as a free agent looked a lot more promising before the Chiefs selected Clyde Edwards-Helaire in the first round of the 2020 draft, but things got interesting again after Damien Williams opted out of the 2020 season. It now appears Washington will compete with Darwin Thompson and Darrel Williams for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart. If Washington gets an opportunity, he could become the latest back to emerge from obscurity in an Andy Reid offense. Read Past Outlooks

The Chiefs and Washington agreed to a one-year contract Wednesday, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.
ANALYSIS
In four seasons with the Raiders, Washington found it difficult to hold down a regular role, averaging 14.7 offensive snaps per game in 55 appearances. Overall, he averaged 4.0 yards per carry while hauling in 88 of 110 targets (80 percent), so he may be able to vie for reps on passing downs. First, though, he'll have to contend for reps with Darwin Thompson and Darrel Williams (hamstring) behind starting running back Damien Williams.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019

2017
2016
Heading into the final leg of his four-year rookie contract, Washington's 2019 projection isn't too promising after he notched just 124 yards from scrimmage on 31 touches in 10 contests last season. Not only has Jalen Richard emerged as a pass-catching weapon out of the backfield, but the Raiders also spent the 24th overall draft pick on Alabama product Josh Jacobs. The latter is on track to handle a majority of the early-down work right out of the gate, and Oakland was essentially forced into re-signing veteran Doug Martin after a season-ending torn Achilles suffered by Isaiah Crowell.
Washington struggled to separate from Jalen Richard as the primary backup behind starter Marshawn Lynch in 2017, as the former averaged just 2.7 yards per carry and totaled 350 yards from scrimmage. The Raiders added another veteran piece to their backfield this offseason to complement the 32-year-old Lynch, signing former Buccaneer Doug Martin in free agency. With a bit of uncertainty regarding the rotation at running back under new coach Jon Gruden, Washington's fantasy value remains limited to deeper leagues as draft season approaches.
A 2016 fifth-round pick out of Texas Tech, Washington proved to be a dangerous complement to Latavius Murray, exploding for seven gains of 20 yards or more on only 87 carries -- a rate that ranked fifth in the NFL. Unfortunately for Washington, fellow undersized rookie Jalen Richard had a similar skill set, which resulted in the two cannibalizing each other's opportunities as the Raiders' twin lead backs when Murray was hurt. Recognizing the need for a big, physical runner to protect their two electric scatbacks, Oakland convinced Marshawn Lynch to come out of retirement and replace Murray at the top of the depth chart. While that limits Washington's potential production, he does still have room for growth. After catching over 100 passes in his final three seasons in college, he saw only 23 targets in 2016.
Washington was a four-year playmaker at Texas Tech, though his 5-8, 200-pound frame put a cap in his theoretical touch upside. Washington also has small hands for the position, which lead to occasional bouts with dropped passes and fumbles. Nonetheless, the Raiders snagged him with a fifth-round selection, and the team’s depth chart is notably thin after Latavius Murray. And it’s not like Murray has an absolute hammerlock on the starting gig after an up-and-down 2015. It makes sense to play a hedge somewhere in this backfield, with Washington the logical place to start.
