• DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 9/28/16 2:17pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle, knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Jackson should return to practice at some point this week and likely will be able to play in Week 4. He has recorded at least 96 yards in two of his three games this season and should be a solid No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.

  • Josh Doctson - WR
    Posted 9/28/16 2:10pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Doctson was not able to play in Week 3 and will need to practice this week if he wants to play in Week 4. He has received limited playing time this season and would not be a strong fantasy option if he is active this week.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB
    Posted 9/26/16 4:05am ET

    Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins threw for 296 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-27 win over the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Cousins, who was on the hot seat with some of his players earlier in the week, wasnt after this game. It's a classic case of what a difference a week makes for Cousins, who has solid QB2 potential. The only thing holding him back is the team he is on and the matchups every week.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 9/26/16 4:14am ET

    Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson tallied five catches and 96 yards Sunday, Sept. 25, including a 44-yard touchdown, in a 29-27 win over the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Together with Jamison Crowder, Jackson appears to have re-ignited the Redskins' receiving game. If you can put up with the mercurial team and its numbers every week, Jackson is a WR1 or WR2 who can put up solid numbers.

  • Matt Jones - RB
    Posted 9/26/16 4:10am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones posted 17 carries for 65 yards but did not score Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-27 win over the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Jones is the top runner on an otherwise mediocre Redskins rushing attack. This was a better week for that attack, but it misses Alfred Morris. Jones deserves some fantasy consideration, even if it's just as an RB3 or a substitute on a bye week.

  • Matt Jones - RB
    Posted 9/23/16 1:10pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Jones should receive most of the work at running back again this week. He has rushed for 85 yards in the first two games and has also added two catches for 13 yards. Jones can be a flex option in some leagues but could stay on the bench if owners have better options.

  • Josh Doctson - WR
    Posted 9/23/16 1:08pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Doctson should be active for the game and probably will receive limited targets. Doctson will not be a strong fantasy option until he has a bigger role in the passing game.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 9/23/16 1:13pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle, knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Jackson will be able to play against the New York Giants, but it is not known if his injuries will affect him in any way. He will be facing an improve Giants defense but should still be considered a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 9/22/16 12:18pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle, knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

    Huddle Up: Owners will know more about Jackson's status after practice Friday, Sept. 23, but it is a good sign that he was able to do some things at practice Thursday. Jackson is off to a solid start this season and can be in starting lineups this week if he is active.

  • Matt Jones - RB
    Posted 9/22/16 1:22pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

    Huddle Up: Jones will still split playing time with Chris Thompson at least, and the New York Giants have been stellar defensively against running backs so far in 2016. Jones is still a flex or RB2 option, but don't expect him to put up the same numbers he did last week.

  • Josh Doctson - WR
    Posted 9/22/16 1:14pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

    Huddle Up: Doctson saw the most action so far this season last week, including some red-zone targets. He has yet to get going following an offseason in which he was hampered by the Achilles' injury, but the writing could be on the wall. Unfortunately, it's tough to warrant starting him until he does start producing, especially with Jordan Reed, DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder all taking targets. It's best to keep Doctson on the bench again this week.

  • Josh Norman - CB
    Posted 9/21/16 9:53am ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. will be shadowed by Washington Redskins CB Josh Norman, except in the slot, in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: OBJ and Norman have exchanged barbs on social media since their confrontation last season. Beckham is a legit WR1 candidate, when healthy, every week. This week is no different.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 9/21/16 11:51am ET

    Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle, knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21, because of injuries he suffered in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to see if Jackson will be able to practice later in the week before deciding on their lineups. He has been a solid part of the Redskins' passing game over the first two weeks and could be a No. 3 receiver for owners if he is healthy.

  • Matt Jones - RB
    Posted 9/21/16 12:39pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Jones should continue to receive a majority of the carries in the running game, but he has rushed for only 85 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries in the first two games. Jones could be a flex option in some leagues, but he is not a must-start option.

  • Josh Doctson - WR
    Posted 9/21/16 12:32pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Doctson has been able to play in the first two games despite the injury and likely will be active for Week 3. He has been targeted six times in two weeks but has only two catches for 66 yards. Doctson's role in the passing game likely will grow during the season, but he is not a strong option at this point.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB
    Posted 9/20/16 9:46am ET

    Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins still has the 'total faith' of head coach Jay Gruden despite a rough beginning to the season. Cousins ranks third in the league in passing yards (693), but he has only one touchdown versus three interceptions, contributing to Washington's 0-2 start.

    Huddle Up: The Redskins' defense has coughed up 65 points as well, so the failings of the team hardly fall entirely on the shoulders of Cousins, although he has already been picked off more times this year than he was over his final nine contests combined (including playoffs) last season. He could struggle again this week against a New York Giants defense that kept Drew Brees in check in Week 2, but he has a shot to carve up the Cleveland Browns in Week 4. Cousins remains a QB2 in fantasy for now.

  • Josh Doctson - WR
    Posted 9/20/16 1:04pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson received three targets in the red zone during the Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Doctson caught one of his five targets against Dallas Sunday, but his sole reception went for 57 yards and could have been a touchdown score if he wasn't under thrown on the play. Big-play upside and plenty of looks around the end zone are a recipe for fantasy success, and while there could be peaks and valleys over the next few weeks, Docston could be a difference maker down the fantasy stretch drive and in the playoff weeks. He is worth owning in the majority of leagues.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB
    Posted 9/19/16 7:49am ET

    Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is 5-for-17 for 34 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in the red zone. Last season, he was 50-for-78 for 345 yards, 22 touchdowns and no interceptions in the red zone.

    Huddle Up: It has been a bit of a slow start, and they'll have a must-win game against the New York Giants next week. The Giants boast a solid secondary, and it won't be a great matchup. He'll be a low-end QB1 option in fantasy.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR
    Posted 9/18/16 10:49pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder hauled in six receptions for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys. He was targeted a team-high eight times.

    Huddle Up: Crowder jelled nicely with Kirk Cousins, one of just a few players to do so. Crowder has emerged as a solid WR4 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, especially PPR formats.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB
    Posted 9/18/16 10:48pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 28 of his 46 pass attempts for 364 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys. He also ran twice for 20 yards. After a pair of losses at home, a source with knowledge of the situation said multiple offensive players have begun to complain about Cousins, pointing to a lack of decisiveness, erratic play and confusion.

    Huddle Up: Cousins is putting up big fantasy numbers, but teammates do not care about that - they care about wins and losses. Colt McCoy is waiting in the wings in case Cousins continues to struggle. Fantasy owners cannot be pleased hearing Cousins is skating on thin ice with his teammates.

  • Matt Jones - RB
    Posted 9/18/16 10:48pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones carried 13 times for 61 yards and a touchdown in the Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys. He added one reception for four yards on his only target.

    Huddle Up: Jones was banged up in the preseason and it looked like he might not be able to carry the full load, but he is the man in D.C. and he remains a solid RB2 in all standard fantasy formats.

  • Matt Jones - RB
    Posted 9/16/16 3:19pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Jones was limited to 34 yards in the regular season opener and will look to improve on those numbers against the Dallas Cowboys. Jones could be a flex option in some leagues but could be left on the bench if owners have better options to use.

  • Matt Jones - RB
    Posted 9/15/16 6:03pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 15.

    Huddle Up: Jones' shoulder held up during Week 1, and he should see his workload increase going forward. He should be a solid flex play against Dallas in Week 2.

  • Josh Doctson - WR
    Posted 9/15/16 5:59pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 15.

    Huddle Up: Doctson should be eased into the offense as the year progresses, but he is merely a stash candidate keeper formats for now.

  • Josh Doctson - WR
    Posted 9/14/16 4:06pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Doctson caught only one pass for nine yards in Week 1 and probably continue to see limited targets early in the season. Owners in all leagues should be able to find better options to use.

  • Matt Jones - RB
    Posted 9/14/16 4:01pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Jones received eight touches in Week 1 and finished with 38 total yards. He should receive more playing time this week and could be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in a majority of fantasy leagues.

  • Matt Jones - RB
    Posted 9/12/16 2:52pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) was not listed among Washington's Week 1 inactives against the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday, Sept. 12.

    Huddle Up: Jones said he would play, so this isn't a big surprise. Just how much he plays, though, is another issue. Pittsburgh was elite against the run last season and Jones averaged a mere 3.4 yards per carry. He's a risky play tonight and should only be started as a flex if there aren't better options.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB
    Posted 9/12/16 8:51pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 30 of his 43 pass attempts for 329 yards in the Week 1 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, he was picked off twice.

    Huddle Up: Cousins had a lot more passing attempts with the team playing from behind, so that's good for fantasy stats. But they were behind because of a couple of big mistakes by Cousins. Consider him a QB2 heading into Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 9/12/16 9:05pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed was targeted a team-high 11 times in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, posting seven receptions for 64 yards.

    Huddle Up: Reed was the consolation price in fantasy football for owners missing out on Rob Gronkowski, and fantasy owners are expecting big things going forward. He should excel in Week 2 against a Dallas Cowboys pass defense that allowed a touchdown to the tight end in Week 1.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR
    Posted 9/12/16 9:04pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon posted six receptions for 51 yards in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, converting all six of his targets into targets.

    Huddle Up: Garcon is behind DeSean Jackson and Jordan Reed in the pecking order for catches in D.C., and he is battling Jamison Crowder for the crumbs. There is still enough ball to go around, but Garcon should be treated more like a WR4 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams going forward.
