Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Cyril Grayson is visiting with the Washington Commanders on Tuesday. The Bucs gave Grayson an injury settlement before cutting him at the beginning of this month, but he's hoping to latch on with another team for the 2022 season. The 28-year-old had 11 receptions on 16 targets for 215 yards and two touchdowns in his three seasons in Tampa, with the vast majority of that production coming last year in five games (three starts). If he's signed by the Commanders, he'll provide receiving depth behind Terry McLaurin, Jahan Dotson, Curtis Samuel, Dyami Brown, Cam Sims and Dax Milne.
Washington Commanders tight end Logan Thomas caught two out of three targets for five yards in Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Thomas was expected to be a solid option prior to the start of Week 3, but that sentiment fell apart as he lacked involvement in the receiving game. The 31-year-old seemed to be working his way into weekly starter conversation after two strong weeks to open the season. Now, he has reverted back to being a streaming option for the time being. Thomas should be in the streaming conversation in Week 4 against the Dallas Cowboys, but remember to proceed with caution.
Washington Commanders running back J.D. McKissic had three carries for eight yards along with six receptions on nine targets for 32 yards in Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The 29-year-old saw some work in the receiving game for the second week in a row due to the Commanders playing from behind for the entirety of the game. Negative game scripts have become McKissic's calling as of late. With Washington having a porous defense, they could be in plenty more of them as the season rolls on. McKissic doesn't offer upside as a runner, but his heavy usage as a pass catcher when Washington plays from behind gives him potential as a bench piece.
Washington Commanders running back Antonio Gibson had 12 carries for 38 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The third-year pro was the victim of a second straight negative game script as Washington again fell behind quickly in the first half. This Washington offense is already pass-happy, but once they get behind, there will be little production from the running game. Luckily for fantasy managers, Gibson scored another late touchdown to make his scoring output more mediocre than terrible. With the Commanders taking on a less imposing Dallas Cowboys team in Week 4, Gibson could be in line for a better performance as an RB2 for fantasy.
Washington Commanders wide receiver Jahan Dotson caught two out of eight targets for 10 yards in Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. After two impressive weeks to start his NFL career, the former Nittany Lion went quiet in Week 3. He was given the tall task of taking on a talented Eagles secondary, but he struggled with drops as well. This performance is disappointing, but it's far from concerning for the rookie's season-long outlook. Dotson is still a talented, young player with plenty more to show and he shouldn't be discredited due to a rough performance in his third career start. That being said, it'd be wise to consider him as a flex option from now on.
