AVOID: Rock Cartwright, RB, Redskins

AVOID: Rock Cartwright, RB, Redskins — With Clinton Portis hurt and Ladell Betts out for the season, Rock Cartwright may get the bulk of Washington's carries down the stretch. The opportunity to pick up a No. 1 back — especially one with a 4.4 yard per carry average over his career — this late in the season is not something to ignore. At the same time, this late in the season you have to be more mindful of a team's schedule.
Let's take a look at the rest of Washington's schedule:
Week 12: Washington @ Philadelphia
Week 13: New Orleans @ Washington
Week 14: Washington @ Oakland
Week 15: New York Giants @ Washington
Week 16: Dallas @ Washington
See why I say to avoid Rock Cartwright now? That schedule is brutal. In that it has the Redskins on it every week. And you should never, ever, ever, under any circumstances, have a member of the Redskins on your fantasy team. Ever. Ever ever. I mean, seriously. What were you thinking?
