• Jamison Crowder - WR
    Posted 10/19/18 11:01am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 7 versus the Dallas Cowboys and 'could miss a little time,' according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: The Redskins are pretty banged up at receiver at the moment, although it's not as if Alex Smith has been making much use of them anyway this season. A player who averaged 66.5 catches and 100.5 targets over his last two years, Crowder was only on pace for 52 receptions and 78 targets prior to sitting out Week 6. With Paul Richardson also listed as doubtful on the injury report, the Redskins may have no choice to force the ball to Jordan Reed and Chris Thompson in the passing game.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 10/19/18 2:17pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle, shoulder) was limited in practice again on Friday, Oct. 19 and he is listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Peterson was in the same boat last week and he was able to play despite a questionable tag, just missing out on 100 rushing yards. The Texas-born running back isn't likely to miss this game, as he has a little revenge on his mind after the team rebuffed him as a free agent in 2017.

  • Josh Doctson - WR
    Posted 10/19/18 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.

  • Chris Thompson - RB
    Posted 10/19/18 2:29pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs, knee) was limited in practice for a third straight day Friday, Oct. 19 and he is considered questionable for Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Thompson is a question mark and probably should be avoided in most fantasy leagues. However, monitor his status heading into Sunday. If he is active and Adrian Peterson (ankle, shoulder) does not play, Thompson could have a surprisingly good day.

  • Paul Richardson - WR
    Posted 10/19/18 2:25pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (ankle, shoulder) did not practice Friday, Oct. 19 and he is listed as doubtful for the Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: The Redskins haven't ruled him out yet, so there is a chance he plays. With Jamison Crowder already out, and Richardson unlikely, it could be a bigger workload for Josh Doctson.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR
    Posted 10/18/18 1:28pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: It appears like Crowder probably will miss another game, but owners will know more about his status Friday, Oct. 19. Owners probably should look for other options to use and can avoid Crowder.

  • Chris Thompson - RB
    Posted 10/18/18 1:46pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (knee, rib) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Thompson could be a game-time decision this week, so owners should monitor the situation over the next few days. Thompson is a valuable option in point-per-reception leagues when he plays and could be a flex option in Week 7 if he is active.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 10/18/18 1:43pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle, shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Peterson should be able to play this week despite the injuries but probably will not be involved in the passing game. He rushed for 97 yards in Week 6 and can be considered a No. 2 running back in standard leagues this week.

  • Paul Richardson - WR
    Posted 10/18/18 1:41pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was able to play in the last game, but his status for Week 7 is still up in the air. Owners can keep an eye on the situation, but Richardson can be benched if better options are available.

  • Josh Doctson - WR
    Posted 10/18/18 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.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 10/18/18 6:51pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed needs the ball more, according to head coach Jay Gruden, and Gruden plans on using three-tight end sets on occasion to create mismatches for Reed. 'We'll have a limited package every week, but love the formations, love the way we can attack defenses a lot of different ways,' Gruden said.

    Huddle Up: Reed is off to a slow start, but he was targeted a team-high nine times in Week 6. He's also managed to remain healthy, and as thin as the tight end position is, Reed is still a fantasy starter in all formats.

  • Chris Thompson - RB
    Posted 10/17/18 12:16pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib, knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: If Thompson can stay on the practice field throughout the week then it will be a good sign for his availability this Sunday. When healthy he's a solid PPR RB2 candidate.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 10/17/18 3:21pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle, shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: While nothing is official, this was likely more of a veteran's rest day to give him bumps and bruises an extra day to heal. Peterson is likely to be ready for the Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys, and he is a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Josh Doctson - WR
    Posted 10/17/18 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.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR
    Posted 10/17/18 3:17pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Crowder is expected to miss practice time and he is a question mark for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Check back Friday for his official injury designation. The slot receiver is a risky fantasy play for Week 7 at this point.

  • Paul Richardson - WR
    Posted 10/17/18 3:24pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) was unable to practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Richardson has found the end zone in two of his past three outings, and he has seven grabs with 81 yards and 10 targets over the past two games. He is worth a look as a low-end WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams as long as he is healthy. It appears he is getting more comfortable in his new surroundings after a slow start.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR
    Posted 10/15/18 12:38pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) isn't expected to resume practicing until at least Friday, Oct. 19, at the earliest, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: It means Crowder is a poor bet to suit up in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys. With only 13 catches and 134 yards in the four games he's played in so far, owners are justified in cutting bait with him. While he will have huge PPR potential the moment Chris Thompson and/or Jordan Reed get hurt, Alex Smith is not making any Washington receiver a big enough part of the offense at the moment.

  • Paul Richardson - WR
    Posted 10/14/18 5:35am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) is considered a game-time decision for Week 6's game against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was listed as questionable on the injury report despite taking part in only one practice session during the week on a limited basis. If he is active versus Carolina, he's worthy of consideration as a flex option, especially with WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) and RB Chris Thompson (rib, knee) unlikely to play.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 10/14/18 5:28am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle, shoulder, knee) is expected to play in Week 6's game against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Peterson was listed as questionable on the injury report and had been a limited practice participant throughout the week. Assuming he is active, he should be viewed as a low-end RB2 or flex option in most fantasy formats.

  • Paul Richardson - WR
    Posted 10/14/18 9:29am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 6 game.

    Huddle Up: Richardson has been pretty consistent over the last few games but has not caught more than four passes in any game. He could be a flex option for some owners but can be benched if better options are available.

  • Josh Doctson - WR
    Posted 10/14/18 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.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 10/14/18 1:36pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle, knee, shoulder) not only played in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers, but he played well with 97 rushing yards on 17 carries.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners might be a little disappointed that he just missed potential bonuses for 100 yards and he didn't have a score, but be happy he didn't have any setbacks with his myriad of nagging injuries. The Redskins will be back in action in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Alex Smith - QB
    Posted 10/14/18 1:32pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith completed 21-of-36 passes for 163 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 6 win against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Smith had a season-low in passing yardage, but he has managed a total of four touchdowns over his past two home games. He remains more of a QB2 heading into Week 7, especially against a sturdy defense like the Dallas Cowboys coming into town next Sunday.

  • Josh Doctson - WR
    Posted 10/14/18 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.

  • Paul Richardson - WR
    Posted 10/14/18 1:44pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson managed three receptions for 31 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was the best of the lot for the Redskins wide receivers with Jamison Crowder out with an injury and all of his fellow wideouts struggling. The best news is that he didn't appear to have any setbacks with his knee or shoulder issues. The Redskins host the Cowboys in Week 7.

  • Vernon Davis - TE
    Posted 10/14/18 1:39pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis posted three grabs for a team-best 48 yards and a touchdown on his three targets in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Jordan Reed made it through the entire game, but Davis factored in with the wideouts banged up. Despite the decent stat line he is still only worth a look in the deepest of fantasy leagues heading into Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 10/14/18 11:36pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed caught five passes for 36 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Reed was targeted a team-high nine times, three more than anyone else, but it didn't equate to production, and he finished with fewer than 40 yards for the second straight week. Washington hosts Dallas next week, and Reed remains a midrange TE1 despite some early struggles.

  • Chris Thompson - RB
    Posted 10/13/18 8:51pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs, knee) is listed as questionable to face the Carolina Panthers in Week 6, but he is not expected to play, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: With Thompson out, Adrian Peterson should see plenty of touches against Carolina. Peterson has been dealing with injuries of his own, but he is expected to play and has RB2 potential.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR
    Posted 10/13/18 8:55pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) is expected to play in the Week 6 game against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Crowder and Chris Thompson are not expected to play, and the Redskins have a couple of other receivers dealing with injuries. Shockingly, Jordan Reed might be the healthiest and safest target in the passing game against the Panthers.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 10/12/18 10:43am ET

    Washington Redskins RBs Adrian Peterson (shoulder, ankle, knee) and Chris Thompson (ribs) are listed as questionable for Week 6, head coach Jay Gruden said Friday, Oct. 12, and likely will be game-time decisions.

    Huddle Up: There is optimism that both backs should play against the Panthers, and if so, Peterson (standard) and Thompson (PPR) are low-end RB2/flex options. Fantasy owners, of course, will need to check in before kickoff Sunday.
