  • Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reported that Oakland Raiders running back DeAndre Washington has been “getting all second-team RB reps” ahead of Jalen Richard. Washington and Richard are competing for touches in the Raiders backfield behind starter Marshawn Lynch.
  • In 2016 as rookies, Washington and Richard split the work behind starter Latavius Murray, with Washington getting 256 snaps and Richard playing 250. Richard was the better of the two with a PFF grade of 77.2 that ranked 19th of 61 qualifying running backs, to Washington’s 72.3 grade that ranked 35th.
  • Last year Richard forced 28 missed tackles in 117 touches, and his 3.59 yards after contact per attempt was second among all running backs with at least 100 total touches. Washington forced only 10 missed tackles in 108 touches, but was fifth in yards after contact per attempt at 3.26.
