    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson posted two grabs for 33 yards in Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles, setting a new career high with 532 yards in 2018.

    Huddle Up: Doctson failed to come close to the six touchdowns he posted last season, but he did well considering the Redskins ran through Alex Smith, Colt McCoy, Mark Sanchez and Josh Johnson at the quarterback position this season. His future is still pretty bright.

  • Posted: 12/28/2018 10:43am ET

    Washington Redskins Josh Doctson (illness, back) is considered questionable for Week 17, head coach Jay Gruden said Friday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: Doctson has been iffy all week and has caught 3-of-8 targets for 30 yards over the last two games. Steer clear unless you're desperate for a flex starter in a deep league.

  • Posted: 12/27/2018 9:23am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (back) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 27.

    Huddle Up: Doctson has been playing through a lower-back injury, catching 3-of-6 targets for 30 yards in Week 16 at Tennessee, but likely will need to get back on the practice field Friday before anyone will feel good about him playing in Sunday's finale.

  • Posted: 12/22/2018 11:17pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson caught three of his six targets for 30 yards in Week 16 versus the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Doctson was drafted in the first round in 2016 with the idea he could use his size and athleticism to stretch the field. Unfortunately, the Redskins have rarely ever tried to utilize him in that way - first because he struggled to stay healthy and more recently because Washington hasn't employed a quarterback able or willing to let him track down 50-50 balls. Doctson is safe to leave on the waiver wire for the foreseeable future.

  • Posted: 12/20/2018 9:46am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (unknown) was not spotted during the open portion of the team's practice Thursday, Dec. 20.

    Huddle Up: An intriguing development as Doctson is not known to be dealing with any kind of injury and this being Washington's final major practice of the week leading into its game Saturday in Tennessee. A post-practice update from the team is sure to be forthcoming.

  • Posted: 12/16/2018 3:19pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson was targeted two times during the Week 15 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars but finished the game with zero receptions.

    Huddle Up: Doctson was dealing with a concussion this week but was cleared to play. He likely will be more involved in the passing game next week but may only be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/15/2018 11:43am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (concussion) will be traveling with the team for their Week 15 game. He is listed as questionable for the game.

    Huddle Up: Doctson may he a game-time decision, but it is a good sign that he is traveling with the team. He is coming off a solid Week 14 performance and could be a flex option in some leagues if he is cleared.

  • Posted: 12/14/2018 10:54am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (concussion) on Friday, Dec. 14, was listed as questionable for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Doctson caught four of his five targets for 84 yards in the Week 14 loss to the Giants, but still must take his final steps in clearing the concussion protocol over the next day. Even if he does, Doctson is only a deep-league flex option in a tough matchup against the Jaguars.

  • Posted: 12/13/2018 4:31pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Doctson will need to be cleared by doctors before he is allowed to play, so owners will need to monitor the situation. He has been playing well over the last few weeks but would be facing a tough Jacksonville Jaguars secondary if he plays. Owners should have other options available in case Doctson is ruled out.

  • Posted: 12/12/2018 9:29am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (concussion) is out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 12.

    Huddle Up: He had four grabs for 84 yards in a solid showing last week and could be a flex play against the Jacksonville Jaguars if he's ready.

  • Posted: 12/10/2018 12:50pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (concussion) was placed in the league's concussion protocol Monday, Dec. 10.

    Huddle Up: The Redskins' offensive personnel continues to drop like flies. Doctson somehow managed a season-high 84 yards despite catching passes for Mark Sanchez and Josh Johnson in Week 14. He was a poor bet for huge Week 15 production with the Jacksonville Jaguars next up on the schedule, so this injury should have little impact on many fantasy teams still remaining in the playoffs.

  • Posted: 12/9/2018 5:22pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson caught four of his five targets for 84 yards in a 40-16 loss to the New York Giants in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Doctson has topped 50 yards in a three straight games, but he has just two touchdown receptions all year. You should be able to find better flex plays, especially with Washington's current quarterback situation.

  • Posted: 12/7/2018 2:45pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hip) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 7 and he is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Doctson is not worth rolling the dice upon in fantasy this weekend. Even if he can play he is down to his third-string quarterback, Mark Sanchez, who is unlikely to take many chances down the field.

  • Posted: 12/3/2018 8:24pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson posted three receptions for a team-high 51 yards on five targets in Week 13 against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday, Dec. 3.

    Huddle Up: Doctson is healthy and looking to make strides to improve, but he lost his starting QB Alex Smith a couple of weeks ago, and now he lost the backup QB Colt McCoy, too. The Redskins are down to QB Mark Sanchez, and that's not good for elevating anyone's game.

  • Posted: 11/18/2018 4:49pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson posted three grabs for 32 yards on seven targets in Week 11 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Doctson will now have to get used to catching passes from Colt McCoy, so his short-term fantasy value is a bit in flux. It wasn't that great to begin with, but at least he has been able to stay healthy. The Redskins travel to face the Cowboys on Thanksgiving in Week 12.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 6:09pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson caught all four of his targets for 46 yards and a touchdown in a 16-3 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 10, and he has now scored in back-to-back games.

    Huddle Up: Washington's receiving corps has been thinned by injuries, leaving Doctson as one of the go-to targets, especially in the red zone. That being said, he is still no more than a touchdown-dependent flex play in a run-first offense.

  • Posted: 10/28/2018 2:44pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson caught five passes for 49 yards against the New York Giants in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Doctson has been targeted at least five times in four of the last five games but has not able to post more than 49 yards in any game. He probably will not be a starting option in most leagues next week.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 7:45pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson posted three receptions for 42 yards on a team-high six targets in the Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Doctson saw a slight uptick in production with Jamison Crowder and Paul Richardson sidelined, but he still needs to do way more before using him on a regular basis in fantasy. The Redskins travel to meet the Giants in Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/19/2018 2:13pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (heel) was able to practice in full Friday, Oct. 19 and he has been removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 7 game with the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Doctson could be involved quite a bit more than usual with Jamison Crowder already ruled out and Paul Richardson listed as doubtful. Consider Doctson a low-end WR4 or flex streaming option if you're desperate for receiving help due to bye weeks.

  • Posted: 10/18/2018 1:56pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (heel) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Docton should be able to play this week but has struggled so far this season with only eight catches for 68 yards in four games. He is still one of the top options in the passing game for the Redskins but would only be a flex option if owners want to use him in their lineups.

  • Posted: 10/17/2018 3:19pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (heel) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Doctson appears to be in good shape for the Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys, but double-check his status Friday before setting your lineup. When healthy he is a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 1:47pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson finished with three grabs for 20 yards on six targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Doctson had a chance to step up his game with Jamison Crowder sidelined, but like most of his fellow wideouts in Washington he did very little against the Panthers solid pass defense. He'll try to rebound in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, but he is only worth a look as a WR5 at this point in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 9:28am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (heel) is officially active for the team's Week 6 game.

    Huddle Up: Doctson has missed some time because of the injury but should return to the starting lineup. He has only posted 57 yards this season and caught five of his 13 targets. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but is not a must-start option for owners.

  • Posted: 10/12/2018 12:32pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (heel) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 12, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Doctson was limited all week during practice, so his status for the game is uncertain. Owners will need to check the inactive list before deciding on their starting lineup because Doctson could be at least a flex option if he plays.

  • Posted: 10/9/2018 11:49pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (heel) was close to being ready for the team's game Monday, Oct. 8, and head coach Jay Gruden is hopeful that Doctson will play in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Doctson did next to nothing prior to getting hurt so we'll see if he can turn things around going forward. Until he shows something he should remain firmly planted on your fantasy bench, if he's on your roster at all.

  • Posted: 10/8/2018 4:13pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Maurice Harris will start at wide receiver in Week 5 with WR Josh Doctson (heel) sidelined.

    Huddle Up: Harris has not caught any passes this season but could see some targets with Doctson out. He could have some value in daily fantasy leagues but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Posted: 10/6/2018 1:23pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (heel) did not practice Saturday, Oct. 6 and he is listed as questionable for the Week 5 game against the New Orleans Saints on Monday, Oct. 8.

    Huddle Up: Doctson was seen limping around on Friday and beat writer John Keim said he clearly isn't looking good. It sounds like Doctson isn't expected to play after getting kicked in the heel in practice on Monday. Avoid him for fantasy purposes in this one. Maurice Harris is expected to replace him.

  • Posted: 10/5/2018 1:54pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (heel) did not practice Friday, Oct. 5 after getting kicked in the heel earlier in the week in practice.

    Huddle Up: Doctson still has a couple of days to heal his heel, so he might be able to give it a go against the New Orleans Saints on Monday. He hasn't done much from a fantasy perspective, but that could change against the defensively-challenged Saints.

  • Posted: 10/5/2018 10:12am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (heel) is wearing a walking boot as he recovers from a heel injury, a source said Friday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Doctson has not participated in practice all week after missing Week 4, and given his shaky production (five catches for 48 yards on 13 targets) even when he has played this season, he can be safely dropped in the majority of leagues.

  • Posted: 10/4/2018 10:35am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (heel) was not able to practice Thursday, Oct. 4. His heel was stepped on in practice Wednesday, Oct. 3, and he has not practiced the last two days.

    Huddle Up: Doctson looks questionable at best for Week 5, but he does have any extra day of recovery time since the Redskins play on Monday night. He has been a big disappointment so far this year, though, and is not a reliable start even when healthy.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 2:04pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson recorded four receptions for 37 yards on seven targets in the Week 2 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Doctson was third on the team in targets, and he seems to be getting on the same page with new QB Alex Smith. More importantly, he has made it through two games without any nicks, as injuries have held him back in the past. If he can stay healthy he has the chance to be a decent WR4 with a little upside in most fantasy leagues. The Redskins host the Packers in Week 3.

  • Posted: 8/11/2018 12:44pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (ankle) was able to participate in most of practice Saturday, Aug. 11, and he was reportedly moving well with tape on his right foot and ankle area.

    Huddle Up: Doctson showed glimpses of brilliance last season, and he has the potential to be a breakout fantasy option if he can stay healthy. So far during his career that has been the biggest challenge. His propensity for injury makes him more of a low-end WR3 or flex fantasy option, but he has the potential to be a WR2 if he can stay on the field.

  • Posted: 8/7/2018 11:19am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (heel, shoulder) participated in team drills Tuesday, Aug. 7, despite dealing with heel and shoulder ailments.

    Huddle Up: Doctson needs to heal before the start of the regular season. Don't be surprised to see him be held out for at least one preseason game. He has breakout potential if the injuries don't linger. Take him as your WR3 or WR4.

  • Posted: 8/5/2018 7:24am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (shoulder, heel) is expected to do individual work Sunday, Aug. 5.

    Huddle Up: Doctson has been plagued by injuries and inconsistency through his first two NFL seasons and should be viewed as a low-end WR3 or high-end WR4 in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/4/2018 8:09pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (shoulder, heel) has a minor heel issue, but head coach Jay Gruden disputed a report that Doctson's heel needed to be drained. 'So I don't know where that came from,' Gruden said 'That is not true.'

    Huddle Up: Gruden has said he expects Doctson to have more opportunities in the red zone this year, but injuries and inconsistency will likely remain issues. He's a touchdown-dependent WR4.

  • Posted: 8/4/2018 10:45am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (shoulder) may be able to participate in some drills during practice Saturday, Aug. 4, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Doctson has a chance to be the team's No. 1 receiver this season and should receive a solid amount of targets if healthy. He has a chance to be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for owners in 2018.

  • Posted: 8/1/2018 7:44pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (shoulder) is expected to miss a few days of practice because of the bruised shoulder he suffered Wednesday, Aug. 1, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Doctson likely will return to practice at some point next week and should be fine for the regular season. He has a bit of a breakout season in 2017 and should be able to improve on his numbers this season. Doctson has a chance to be a low-end No. 3 or a No. 4 receiver in most leagues.

  • Posted: 8/1/2018 11:22am ET

    Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (shoulder) suffered an AC joint sprain/shoulder bruise in practice Wednesday, Aug. 1.

    Huddle Up: The Redskins, fans and fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief. Doctson is Washington's best deep threat and arguably their biggest playmaker. He has low-end WR3 to high-end WR4 upside in what could be a breakout campaign.

  • Posted: 8/1/2018 8:55am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (arm) left practice Wednesday, Aug. 1, with a left arm injury after hitting the ground hard on a catch attempt in the end zone.

    Huddle Up: We'll keep you posted on the severity for the potential WR4 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 7/28/2018 6:35pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson will be 'most dangerous' in the red zone, according to head coach Jay Gruden, but Gruden said Doctson will have a hard time putting up big numbers overall because the offense spreads the ball around.

    Huddle Up: Gruden gave a pretty good description of Doctson's likely fantasy impact this year. There will be some big plays, but consistent production is doubtful. He's a touchdown-dependent WR4.

  • Posted: 6/1/2018 7:41pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson said his confidence continues to grow and he feels as comfortable as he did when he was playing in college.

    Huddle Up: It's been a slow start to his career, but Doctson started to flash his big-play potential last year. He should have a steady role in the offense this year and could deliver WR3 production.

  • Posted: 4/1/2018 6:54pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson will have 'more opportunities to make plays on 50-50 type balls' this coming season, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'He's a guy that builds up his speed, and he can adjust to the ball like no other,' Gruden said. 'His 42-inch vertical is documented, so that's where he gets his separation, by leaping and adjusting to the ball.'

    Huddle Up: Doctson rebounded from an injury-plagued rookie campaign to catch six touchdowns in 2017. He should have a prominent role in the offense in 2018, and he will have upside as a WR3.
