    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.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 8:04pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson caught two passes on 13 targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in a 27-11 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: The huge number of targets is encouraging, but Doctson was remarkably inefficient with his looks. He remains a touchdown-dependent flex play for now.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 2:22pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson hauled in two receptions for 16 yards on four targets in Week 15 against the Arizona Cardinals. He also was credited with a minus-14 yards rushing.

    Huddle Up: Doctson had a pair of scores in Week 12 and Week 13, but he has managed just five grabs for 50 yards and no visits to the end zone over the past two weekends. At this point he is only worth a look at a WR4 heading into Week 16 against the Broncos.

  • Posted: 11/30/2017 10:40pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson had three receptions, 26 yards and a touchdown against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Doctson scored in the fourth quarter for the second straight game, though this time it didn't deliver a W. As the biggest of Washington's receivers Doctson makes sense in the red zone. Now he just needs to do more between the 20s. Until then he tops out as a risky WR3.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 8:52pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson caught two passes for 28 yards, including the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter, in a 20-10 win over the New York Giants Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Doctson salvaged an otherwise quiet night with the late score, and while his role in the offense has increased in recent weeks, he is still a roll-of-the-dice WR3.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 6:43pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson caught four passes on seven targets for a career-high 81 yards in a 34-31 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Doctson has finally carved out a substantial role in the offense, so more solid performances could be on the horizon. He should be owned in all formats at this point, and his big-play ability makes him a potential flex option.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 8:47pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson posted three grabs for 59 yards in the Week 9 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Doctson had a beautiful diving grab and nearly rolled into the end zone for the game-winning score, but he was touched down at the half-yard line. He has been hurt for most of his career, but is finally healthy and showing what he is capable of doing. If he is available off the waiver wire he isn't a bad stash option.

  • Posted: 10/3/2017 4:18pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (shoulder) suffered a minor shoulder injury in the Week 4 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, head coach Jay Gruden said Tuesday, Oct. 3.

    Huddle Up: Gruden didn't seem to believe the injury is a big concern. Doctson hit the ground hard attempting a game-winning touchdown grab in the fourth quarter. He has been prone to injury during the early days of his NFL career, but is finally starting to show some glimpses of brilliance.

  • Posted: 9/29/2017 9:03am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson is a receiver teammates believe is starting to come on, according to ESPN.com's John Keim.

    Huddle Up: Doctson has been snake-bitten by injuries since entering the league as a first-round pick last year, so much so that head coach Jay Gruden appeared to begin questioning his toughness. He made the first impactful play of his career against the Oakland Raiders last week - a 52-yard touchdown on a 50-50 ball from Kirk Cousins - on a play that shows he is starting to earn some trust. He's a worthwhile stash with the talent to become a breakout star if he can stay healthy.

  • Posted: 9/22/2017 1:49pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 22, and was removed from the injury report for Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Doctson, the former first-round pick, has a ton of upside and potential but he has had a difficult time showing it since he has been hampered by injury for his entire career. Fantasy owners will want to monitor his performance over the next few weeks. If he can stay on the field and play a decent amount of snaps, he has the potential to be a stud. However, it's too soon to rely upon him right now.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 9:30pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson was targeted just once in Week 2 against the Rams and he was held without a catch.

    Huddle Up: Doctson, a former first-round pick of the team, has been unable to stay healthy in his brief career. He has been a bust so far, but he has plenty of time to shed the label. However, for now, avoid him in all fantasy leagues until he starts to tap into his immense potential.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 12:45pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Doctson has not made much of an impact since he has entered the NFL and likely will have a limited role in Week 2. He probably should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 7:36am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) will play in Week 2's game against the Los Angeles Rams, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Doctson had been listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited participant in practice throughout the week. He should not be viewed as a viable option in any fantasy format due to his recent injury history and the likelihood that he will see limited snaps this afternoon.

  • Posted: 9/15/2017 3:13pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Doctson may be a game-time decision, so owners will need to check the inactive list before the game. He has not been much of a factor for the Redskins since entering the league and probably can be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/14/2017 6:19pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) should not miss time because of his hamstring injury, according to head coach Jay Gruden, but Gruden said Doctson could have his snaps limited against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Doctson didn't draw a target in Week 1, and he should be nowhere near starting lineups in Week 2 as he deals with yet another injury. If you've been stashing him, don't be shy about sending him to the waiver wire if a decent option is available.

  • Posted: 9/14/2017 1:14pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Doctson was not targeted in the first game and probably would only be the No. 4 receiver if he is active for Week 2. Owners should look for other options to use in their lineups.

  • Posted: 9/13/2017 1:45pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant for practice Wednesday, Sept. 13.

    Huddle Up: Doctson was not targeted in the Week 1 loss against the Eagles on 20 snaps. The former first-round pick in 2016 has had a difficult time staying healthy. He has a ton of upside, and departures this offseason open the way for him to finally see the field and be productive. He just needs to stay on it.

  • Posted: 9/11/2017 5:34pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson needs to play well if he wants to earn more playing time, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Doctson played only 20 snaps in Week 1, but Gruden said he expects Doctson to play more as the season goes on.

    Huddle Up: Doctson missed time during training camp, so he will have to make some plays if he wants to move up the depth chart. Owners probably should avoid Doctson in their leagues until he has a bigger role in the passing game.

  • Posted: 9/8/2017 12:49pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 8, and has been removed from the injury report.

    Huddle Up: This is good news for Kirk Cousins as the Redskins face Jamison Crowder's game-time decision status. Doctson is a reach in any fantasy contest, however, and should be treated as a high-risk, mild-reward flex.

  • Posted: 9/7/2017 12:41pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: Doctson likely will be in the starting lineup against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1 unless he suffers a setback. He will have a bigger role this season because of the changes at the position but was limited to two catches in 2016. Doctson could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Posted: 9/6/2017 3:06pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 6.

    Huddle Up: Doctson appears to be on track to play in Week 1 even though he missed time during the preseason. He is expected to have a bigger role in the passing game this season because of the players the team lost at the position. He could be a flex option in some leagues but could also be benched if owners have better options.

  • Posted: 8/27/2017 6:47pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson did not play in the preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday, Aug. 27.

    Huddle Up: The reason for his absence remains unknown, but given his injury history, it is fair to assume the worst. If healthy, he should be one of Washington top three receivers and is worth a flier as a WR5.

  • Posted: 8/19/2017 9:11pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) made his preseason debut Saturday, Aug. 19, and finished with one catch for 12 yards in a 21-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers, and John Keim of ESPN.com believes Doctson and QB Kirk Cousins need more time to work together to develop trust.

    Huddle Up: Injuries have stunted Doctson's growth, but a steady role in a solid passing attack makes him worth grabbing as an upside WR5.
