Josh Doctson - WRPosted 8/16/17 5:51pm ET
Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) participated in some individual drills during practice Wednesday, Aug. 16, and said he is feeling good. Head coach Jay Gruden said Doctson has not been ruled out for the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Saturday, Aug. 19.
Huddle Up: Doctson has been dealing with the hamstring for about a week, so the team may decide to keep him out against the Packers and look to play him in the third preseason game. He received limited playing time last season because of an injury but is expected to be a starter in 2017. He could be a No. 4 receiver in some fantasy leagues if he is able to recover from his injury.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 8/15/17 11:41am ET
Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins does not want to sign with another team when he becomes a free agent next offseason. Cousins loves playing for the Redskins and hopes to remain there for the entirety of his career.
Huddle Up: The desire is there, but Cousins and the Redskins have had difficult contract negotiations in the past. Nonetheless, Cousins is a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in 2017, even with the losses of Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson.
Rob Kelley - RBPosted 8/15/17 7:06pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine has to work on becoming more consistent in protection, and coaches say he's still thinking too much when running the ball, according to ESPN.com's John Keim, who writes 'there is a gap' between Perine and Rob Kelley.
Huddle Up: It has been widely assumed since the draft Perine would beat out Kelley in camp, but it doesn't appear as if that is going to happen. The rookie should be able to carve out a role at some point given how good of an inside runner he is, but owners probably need to start preparing as if Kelley may be the 200-carry guy in this backfield. Kelley should be considered a midrange RB3 at this point, while Perine is in RB5 territory.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 8/14/17 7:39am ET
Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) disclosed that he had a fracture in his toe Sunday, Aug. 13. 'It's the cleats more than anything,' Reed said. 'The cleats prior to this were more narrow and pressing on the bone that I had the fracture in. These cleats are wider and the orthotics are softer so I don't feel it.'
Huddle Up: Reed is expected back before the start of the season. He's a legit TE1 in fantasy, but his propensity for injuries require a high-upside backup behind him.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 8/13/17 3:55pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) said his new cleats and orthotics have made a difference with his sprained big toe. He is still on the Physically Unable to Perform list but expects to start practicing soon.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see when Reed will be able to return to practice. Reed is one of the better fantasy tight ends but continues to be a risky option because of his injury history. He can be a No. 1 tight end for owners this season but they should have a strong backup in case he misses time.
Josh Doctson - WRPosted 8/13/17 6:12pm ET
Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) is still four or five days away from returning to practice, head coach Jay Gruden said Sunday, Aug. 13.
Huddle Up: Doctson has been battling injures since being drafted last year, but the former first-rounder should have a steady role in Washington's passing attack if he can stay on the field. Given his upside, he is worth gambling on as a WR4.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 8/12/17 10:55am ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) received special orthotics for his left cleat and will test it out for the next couple days, according to head coach Jay Gruden, who added the team will take a look at how Reed is doing after the team's next preseason game against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday, Aug. 19.
Huddle Up: If Reed could ever stay healthy for a full season, he could easily make a claim to be one of the top three tight ends in the game. As it stands right now, Reed is expected to be ready for Week 1, but he is a poor bet to stay healthy all season, making him a risky pick before the end of the fifth round.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 8/12/17 1:07pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) will be reevaluated after the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Reed has not participated in practice since the start of training camp because of his toe injury, so owners will know more about his status after the evaluation. He is one of the better fantasy tight ends when healthy but he has struggled with injuries during his career. Reed should be considered a No. 1 tight end in all leagues if he is healthy for Week 1.
Rob Kelley - RBPosted 8/11/17 6:57am ET
Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley is safe atop the depth chart for the time being, in the opinion of beat writer Rich Tandler.
Huddle Up: Samaje Perine had a rough preseason debut, and it doesn't appear he's anywhere close to sniffing the top spot ahead of Kelley. Kelley doesn't offer a lot in the receiving department, but he figures to be a tough runner worthy of an RB2 selection in non-PPR leagues. He's an RB3 in PPR formats.
Samaje Perine - RBPosted 8/10/17 11:34pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine carried six times for 15 yards (2.5 YPC) in his preseason debut Thursday, Aug. 10. He also fumbled, dropped a pass and struggled in pass protection.
Huddle Up: Washington's offense was abysmal so don't read too much into his yardage, but putting the ball on the ground is unacceptable, and his struggles in blitz pick up could make it hard for him to get meaningful snaps. Monitor Perine to see if he cleans things up in pass pro. For now he's a late-round RB5 or Rob Kelley handcuff.
Josh Doctson - WRPosted 8/7/17 9:36am ET
Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) is day to day with his hamstring injury. He didn't practice Monday, Aug. 7.
Huddle Up: He has potential if he can make it on the field. Look for him as a WR4 with some upside.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 8/7/17 6:17pm ET
Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 7, because he received the day off.
Huddle Up: Pryor has a chance to be the top receiver for the Redskins this season and could receive plenty of targets since the team lost two receivers in the offseason. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy receiver this season.
Josh Doctson - WRPosted 8/6/17 3:33pm ET
Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) left practice early Sunday, Aug. 6, and is being evaluated for a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Doctson probably will miss at least a few days of practice depending on the severity of the hamstring injury and could also sit out the first preseason game. He missed most of 2016 because of an injury but has a chance to be a starter for the Redskins this season if he stays healthy. Doctson probably should be considered a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues since he has a chance to see a solid amount of targets.
Rob Kelley - RBPosted 8/5/17 6:50pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (neck) returned to team drills Saturday, Aug. 5.
Huddle Up: Kelley is expected to enter the year as the starter, but with Samaje Perine lurking, he shouldn't be viewed as more than a RB3.
Jamison Crowder - WRPosted 8/5/17 6:59pm ET
Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (hamstring) saw limited reps in practice Saturday, Aug. 5.
Huddle Up: Crowder figures to have a prominent role in Washington's passing attack. He should have no problem returning WR3 value with more upside in PPR formats.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 8/5/17 7:58pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) is expected to be ready for Week 1, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Reed's injury history is tough to ignore, but so is his production when he is healthy. Grab him as a TE1 and cross your fingers he plays most of the year.
Rob Kelley - RBPosted 8/3/17 10:26am ET
Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley appears to be the clear starter in the Redskins' backfield as of now, according to The Washington Post's Master Tesfatsion. However, Tesfatsion posits that head coach Jay Gruden could go with the hot hand between Kelley and RB Samaje Perine. RB Chris Thompson will maintain his duties on third downs and in passing situations.
Huddle Up: Kelley made a decent splash in his first season in the NFL last year, running for over 700 yards and totaling seven touchdowns despite starting just nine games. Perine is a promising rookie who will give Kelley a run for his money, though. Both are more tailored to standard leagues with Kelley posing as an RB3 or flex option and Perine as a mid-round flex and/or handcuff.
Rob Kelley - RBPosted 8/3/17 12:28pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley has not only gained more confidence since last season, he's bulked up and become faster, too, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Kelley is the favorite to start for Washington, as reported earlier, but his upside really takes a hit in PPR scoring. Rookie Samaje Perine will compete for playing time and hurts Kelley as well. As such, Perine should be viewed as one of the top handcuffs heading into the fantasy season.
Jamison Crowder - WRPosted 8/3/17 4:00pm ET
Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 3, but did run routes on the sidelines.
Huddle Up: Crowder probably will not return until he is completely recovered from the injury but likely will be back at practice in the near future. He is expected to be one of the starting receivers for the Redskins this season and should receive more targets in the passing game. Owners in most leagues can consider him as a No. 3 fantasy receiver.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 8/3/17 7:05pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) said Thursday, Aug. 3, that his current absence is related to a stem-cell treatment used to address a toe injury that has been bothering him since the end of last season.
Huddle Up: Reed has as much upside as any tight end not named Rob Gronkowski, but he is a strong gust of wind away from his next injury. Despite the risk, Reed is worth grabbing as a top-five option at his position.
Jamison Crowder - WRPosted 8/2/17 2:02pm ET
Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (hamstring) said he is day-to-day as he nurses his hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Crowder is in the right situation for a breakout season after the departures of Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson. He has more appeal in PPR leagues and can be drafted as a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 8/2/17 2:10pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) does not have a serious toe injury, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Reed recently visited a toe specialist.
Huddle Up: The injury might not be serious, but Reed's injury history is well documented. As has been stated, he's the prototypical high-risk, high-reward player. Drafting Reed as a top-three tight end, especially in PPR leagues, is logical, but tread carefully.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 8/1/17 12:13pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) is seeing a specialist about his toe injury, according to head coach Jay Gruden. There is no timetable yet for his return.
Huddle Up: Reed and injuries go together like water and wetness. We don't know if he'll miss actual regular season games yet, but this is a good reminder of the tight end's fragility. Reed is a high-risk, high-reward player who can finish as a top tight end, but his asking price (third round) may be too high considering the injury history.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 7/31/17 2:45pm ET
Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said he has been impressed with how WR Terrelle Pryor has picked up and retained information.
Huddle Up: Pryor likely will be one of the starting receivers for the Redskins and has a chance to improve his stats with Kirk Cousins as his quarterback. Owners in most leagues should consider Pryor as a No. 2 receiver.
Jamison Crowder - WRPosted 7/31/17 2:46pm ET
Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, July 31.
Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see when Crowder will return to practice. He recorded 847 yards and seven touchdowns last season and probably will be more involved in the passing game this season. Crowder probably should be considered a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 7/27/17 9:05am ET
Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed's (toe) injury isn't a big concern to the team, and he's expected to return during the preseason.
Huddle Up: Reed is a legit TE1 when he's healthy, but that is like catching lightning in a bottle in recent years.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 7/27/17 1:39pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe, ankle) may have twisted his ankle overcompensating for his toe ailment, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Reed isn't expected to miss much time, but Washington doesn't want to risk any setbacks with Reed either. He has a substantial injury history and needs to be ready when the games count. If there aren't any setbacks, Reed remains a top three- to-five fantasy consideration at tight end.
Josh Doctson - WRPosted 7/27/17 4:48pm ET
Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson 'showed signs' of why he was highly regarded coming out of college during the first day of training camp Thursday, July 27. With no restrictions, unlike during spring practices, Doctson went all out, displaying great footwork at the line and crisp route-running, as well as good hands. The second-year receiver is 'encouraged' by how good he feels and believes he will have a big season.
Huddle Up: Doctson is a solid sleeper candidate who could emerge with a breakout campaign in 2017, especially with DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon no longer in town. He was the club's first-round draft choice a year ago, and now that he's fully healthy, it looks like the 24-year-old is primed to provide a return on Washington's investment. Look at him as a value pick at the end of drafts.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 7/26/17 2:44pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (undisclosed) was placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 26.
Huddle Up: Reed can return to practice at any point during training camp, so owners should monitor the situation. He has dealt with injuries during his career but has been a very successful play when he is healthy. He has recorded 17 touchdowns in the last two seasons and should be considered a solid No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 7/26/17 4:12pm ET
Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list because of significant toe soreness, according to a team spokesperson. He will be evaluated further before he is cleared to practice because the team wants to avoid any possible long-term injury.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see how long Reed will be sidelined because of this toe injury. Reed is a bit of a risky option for owners because of his injury history but is a No. 1 fantasy tight end when he is healthy.
