Hey, look at that, the Redskins might have found them a kicker. Washington's seemingly endless search for an accurate and strong-footed booter of the pigskin eventually led them to Forbath (17 for 18 FG), an undrafted free agent from UCLA. Signed in the middle of October, Forbath made his first 17 field goal attempts, tying an NFL record for consecutive field goals to start a career. Twelve of his made kicks were from 40 yards and beyond (though only one was from 50-plus). Obviously, it all comes down to opportunities and with Robert Griffin III manning the Redskins offense, there should be plenty. Even if RGIII's recovery from knee surgery lingers, the Redskins should move the ball enough and perhaps stall a bit more in the red zone. Consider Forbath a viable, middle-of-the-pack option with potential.

Another case of being better in the real world than the fantasy version. The Redskins' D turned in a strong performance, ranking top-11 in yards and points allowed. Of course, most of the fantasy production comes in picks and sacks and in those areas, yikes. Washington tied for last with eight interceptions, 20th in sacks with 33. There is reason for hope with the dragging down the QB behind the line of scrimmage thing seeing as Brian Orakpo returns after missing 14 games with injury and Ryan Kerrigan has 16 in two NFL seasons. The secondary is a much bigger concern, especially on the NFL level, though DeAngelo Hall can make a big play at times. Consider the Redskins a bye week option.
