• Chris Thompson - RB
    Posted 5/17/18 7:44pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice will likely be the starter according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com, but Rosenthal said it 'wouldn't be a surprise' if RB Chris Thompson ended up playing more snaps this year.

    Huddle Up: Prior to his injury last year, Thompson had emerged as a dynamic weapon in the passing game. Expect the same role for Thompson in 2018, and he should be an excellent flex option in PPR formats.

  • Derrius Guice - RB
    Posted 5/10/18 9:59am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice has the fortune, as a rookie, of already knowing when he'll be on the field. Head coach Jay Gruden has made it clear that Guice will be in on first and second downs with RB Chris Thompson maintaining his passing-down role. Gruden added that Guice needs to improve his pass protection, but he also gave Guice credit for being a good pass- catcher.

    Huddle Up: Guice and Thompson have the ability to form quite the dynamic duo in the nation's capital. Guice's role is more suited for standard leagues since Thompson will be in on the majority of passing situations. In either format, Guice is an RB2 candidate as Washington's primary ball-carrier.

    Washington Redskins second-round draft choice RB Derrius Guice signed a four-year deal with the Redskins Thursday, May 10. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Guice has a good chance to be the starting running back for the Redskins during his rookie season. Owners should monitor his situation during training camp to see what his role will be for 2018. Guice can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues if he receives most of the carries.

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson will continue to be the top option out of the backfield on passing downs despite the arrival of second-round RB Derrius Guice, according to ESPN's John Keim, who believes Jordan Reed's health will affect the degree to which Thompson needs to be leaned on in 2018.

    Huddle Up: In six games with Reed last season, Thompson was targeted 21 times and caught 18 passes with two touchdowns. In four games Thompson played without Reed, the former was targeted 31 times with 21 receptions and two touchdowns. Considering Reed's durability issues, Thompson figures to be busy at some point again this season. And as long as Thompson stays healthy, Guice's role in the passing game figures to be limited. Consider Guice a low-end RB2 at best and Thompson a high-end RB3/flex.

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice is expected to start for the team.

    Huddle Up: Guice will lose time on third downs and passing situations to Chris Thompson, but he'll be a high-end RB3 to target.

    Posted 4/29/18 7:59pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice said he can't control all 'the rumors and stuff' that surrounded him leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft but will use the situation as motivation. 'Now I'm going to run angrier than ever,' Guice said. 'It's going to be tough for a lot of teams to bring me down.'

    Huddle Up: Guice will have a great opportunity to win the starting role in Washington. He'll be a RB3 with upside in redraft leagues and one of the top prospects in rookie drafts.

  • Trey Quinn - WR
    Posted 4/28/18 3:52pm ET

    The Washington Redskins selected Southern Methodist WR Trey Quinn with the 256th overall pick (Round 7), the final pick of the 2018 NFL Draft.

    Huddle Up: Quinn will fight for a spot on the team's roster in training camp and the preseason. There are no guarantee he'll make the roster, but he does have the distinction of being Mr. Irrelevant for 2018.

    Posted 4/27/18 5:57pm ET

    The Washington Redskins selected Louisiana State RB Derrius Guice with the 59th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Friday, April 27.

    Huddle Up: Guice has a chance to compete for the starting running back job during training camp, so owners should monitor the situation. He can be at least a No. 3 fantasy running back in 2018 if he is a starter.

  • Derrius Guice - RB
    Posted 4/27/18 8:50pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice can do it all from the running back position, according to head coach Jay Gruden, and Gruden said he 'felt good' about selecting Guice after speaking to him and his agent.

    Huddle Up: Guice has a golden opportunity to grab the starting role in a Washington backfield desperate for a lead back. At the very least, he should be a flex play, and Guice should be one of the first players off the board in rookie drafts.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR
    Posted 4/8/18 6:41pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder has been working with Duke football strength and conditioning coach Noel Durfey this offseason to increase his explosiveness. 'That's why I've been here working, grinding with coach Durfey and the sprint staff,' Crowder said. 'I've been working running routes, getting back into the groove of things before we start OTAs.'

    Huddle Up: Crowder ran hot and cold last year as he battled some injuries, ripping off four excellent games after a slow start before stumbling again to the finish. If he can avoid the injury bug, he has a chance to be a WR3 in PPR formats.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 4/3/18 7:15am ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toes) had a procedure done on his toes, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Reed had a fractured toe last season, which caused him to compensate for it and suffer other injuries. Gruden is hopeful Reed will be 100 percent by training camp.

    Huddle Up: Alex Smith likes throwing to tight ends, and you can't ignore Reed's talent. However, he is always hurt and always a question mark in fantasy. Will 2018 provide more boom than bust? It's something to weigh as a low-end TE1.

  • Josh Doctson - WR
    Posted 4/1/18 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.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 3/27/18 9:25am ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) is not expected to participate in OTAs this spring, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Reed played in only six games last season and eventually landed on the Reserve/Injured list as a result, ending the latest of his five injury-plagued seasons. Since he has missed 28 of a possible 80 games over his five-year NFL career and has yet to play an entire season, it's time owners start treating him as a TE2 with TE1 upside - one that should be lumped in with a player such as Tyler Eifert in the later rounds.

  • Chris Thompson - RB
    Posted 3/26/18 10:14pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) said on his Twitter account that he was able to 'run on the field' Monday, March 26, his first time doing so since he had surgery to repair a broken right fibula in December.

    Huddle Up: Thompson was on pace to set career-high marks in all major categories last year before suffering the unfortunate injury that ended his season. At the very least, he did prove himself to be a useful piece for Washington's running game, and since the club hasn't added any tailbacks, he should be able to resume his role once he's healthy again. Thompson totaled six touchdowns in 10 games and figures to at least carry use as a FLEX option.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR
    Posted 3/22/18 5:46pm ET

    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Redskins) is close to an agreement with the New York Jets, according to sources. The two sides are expected to finalize the deal Thursday, March 22.

    Huddle Up: Pryor probably will be one of the Jets' starting receivers if the deal is finalized. He has played well in the past and should be able to post solid numbers in 2018. Owners in most leagues can consider Pryor a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR
    Posted 3/22/18 10:02pm ET

    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Redskins) has agreed to a deal with the New York Jets Thursday, March 22. Terms have not yet been disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Pryor is coming off a down year following his impressive 1,000-yard campaign in 2016, as he was limited to just nine games due to injury in what turned out to be his only season with the Redskins. He'll have sleeper potential as a member of the Jets, especially if Robby Anderson ends up getting suspended, in which case Pryor could serve as the club's No. 1 wide-out.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR
    Posted 3/21/18 3:13pm ET

    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Redskins) appears to be deciding between the Seattle Seahawks and New York Jets at this point, in the opinion of Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.

    Huddle Up: Pryor likely would have a solid role no matter if he signs with the Seahawks or the Jets. He may have more fantasy value if he signed with the Seahawks because of the quarterback situation but could be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR
    Posted 3/19/18 7:44am ET

    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Redskins) will visit the New York Jets, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Pryor could still have some PPR luster as a WR4 or WR5, depending on the situation.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR
    Posted 3/17/18 10:17am ET

    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Redskins) is scheduled to meet with the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, March 18, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The Seahawks will need to replace Paul Richardson, so Pryor is one of the options that they are looking at in free agency. He is coming off a disappointing 2017 season but is a solid receiver and can be a No. 3 or 4 fantasy receiver depending on his role.

  • Alex Smith - QB
    Posted 3/14/18 2:39pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith was officially traded to the Washington Redskins Wednesday, March 14, in exchange for CB Kendall Fuller and a 2018 third-round draft choice.

    Huddle Up: Patrick Mahomes will take over as the starting quarterback for the Chiefs and has a chance to have success because of the pass catchers on the roster. Owners in most leagues should consider him a No. 2 quarterback, but he can be a No. 1 quarterback in keeper leagues.

  • Alex Smith - QB
    Posted 3/14/18 2:33pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith was officially acquired by the Washington Redskins Wednesday, March 14, in exchange for CB Kendall Fuller and a 2018 third-round draft choice.

    Huddle Up: Smith has posted solid numbers over the last several seasons and will have a nice group of pass catchers to work with in Washington. He probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback against favorable matchups.

    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Redskins) is receiving interest from the Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Pryor struggled this past season with the Redskins but has shown he can be a starting receiver for a team. Pryor has a chance to be a No. 3 fantasy receiver next season depending on his situation.

  • Ryan Grant - WR
    Posted 3/14/18 4:37pm ET

    Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Ryan Grant (Redskins) officially agreed to terms with the Baltimore Ravens Wednesday, March 14. Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but an earlier report stated that it is a four-year deal worth $29 million.

    Huddle Up: Grant probably will be at least the No. 3 receiver for the Ravens this season and could even be in the starting lineup. He is coming off a solid 2017 season and could be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Dustin Hopkins - PK
    Posted 3/13/18 7:46am ET

    Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins PK Dustin Hopkins' three-year deal is worth $6.875 million, according to a source. He received a $1,201,072 million signing bonus.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins was 14-for-17 on FGAs in eight games last season, and he's worth consideration for late-PK1 grab.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB
    Posted 3/13/18 8:05am ET

    Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins will visit the Minnesota Vikings first, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Cousins is an upper-middle QB1 in fantasy wherever he goes.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB
    Posted 3/13/18 8:36am ET

    Updating an earlier report, Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is likely to sign with the Minnesota Vikings, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Things can always change, but he is visiting with them first, and they have an opening on a playoff roster. Cousins is an upper-middle QB1 wherever he goes.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB
    Posted 3/13/18 8:56am ET

    Updating earlier reports, Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is expected to sign a three-year, fully guaranteed deal with the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, March 15, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Anything can happen between now and then, but his fantasy value doesn't hinge on where he signs. He's an upper-middle QB1 regardless.

  • Ryan Grant - WR
    Posted 3/13/18 5:46pm ET

    Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Ryan Grant agreed to terms with the Baltimore Ravens on a four-year contract worth $29 million with $14.5 million guaranteed and a $10 million signing bonus Tuesday, March 13.

    Huddle Up: Grant was long a favorite of Redskins head coach Jay Gruden for his practice habits and finally saw some playing time in 2017, but this is a move that is hard to understand for a mostly unproven receiver who is stretched to be anything more than a slot option. If Baltimore overhauls the receiving corps like general manager Ozzie Newsome suggested earlier this offseason, Grant may be forced to be Joe Flacco's top option.

  • Dustin Hopkins - PK
    Posted 3/12/18 7:05am ET

    Free-agent PK Dustin Hopkins (Redskins) signed an undisclosed deal with the Washington Redskins Monday, March 12.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins was solid in eight games last season going 14-for-17 on FGAs. The offense figures to look much different without Kirk Cousins, but Hopkins is worth consideration as a PK1.
