Washington Redskins running back Byron Marshall (leg) is being evaluated for a lower-leg injury in the preseason game on Thursday. When it rains, it pours. Washington lost rookie Derrius Guice (knee) for the season last week and Samaje Perine also sprained his ankle on Thursday. Depending on the severity of these injuries, the 'Skins might need to bring in outside help at the position. Marshall is the primary backup to third-down back Chris Thompson, so as long as he's still standing, Marshall has limited fantasy appeal.

The Washington Redskins will play their second preseason game Thursday versus the New York Jets. There will be a lot of players being used so here are the important ones to watch. First off, there will be players who are safe and merely need to not get injured. The main fantasy names there are Alex Smith, Jamison Crowder, and Jordan Reed. You then have your guys who are safe on the roster but can help their standing with Alex Smith. Paul Richardson, Vernon Davis and perhaps Brian Quick are the main guys in that category. Finally, you have the running backs. Samaj Perine and Rob Kelley are batting for the role of the traditional runner. Chris Thompson has the pass-catching role in hand but could steal further touches if he outshines the other two. Finally, Byron Marshall is impressing coaches and looks like he could get some of Thompson's value if Thompson gets hurt.

The Washington Redskins released cornerback Orlando Scandrick on Tuesday after signing him to a two-year deal in March. He was expected to add a veteran presence opposite Josh Norman. Quinton Dunbar and Fabian Moreau will now likely slide in across from Norman. Scandrick hasn't played a full season since 2013, so he might find it tough to land another gig quickly.
