    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.

  • Posted: 8/17/2017 4:24pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) has a chance to play in the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Saturday, Aug. 19, but will work out prior to the game before the team decides on his status.

    Huddle Up: Doctson probably would see limited snaps against the Packers if he is cleared but it looks like he is close to 100 percent. He is expected to be a top-three receiver for the Redskins this season and should have a solid role in the passing game. Doctson can be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/16/2017 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.

  • Posted: 8/13/2017 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.

  • Posted: 8/7/2017 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.

  • Posted: 8/6/2017 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.

  • Posted: 7/27/2017 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.

  • Posted: 6/11/2017 5:14pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson will be used in the Z receiver role to start the season, head coach Jay Gruden said. Last year, San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon occupied the Z receiver role for the Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Doctson is unproven coming off an Achilles' injury that ruined his rookie campaign, but the former first-round pick has more than enough upside to grab as a WR5.

  • Posted: 6/9/2017 7:26pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson has been impressing the coaching staff with his catch radius during OTAs.

    Huddle Up: Doctson basically lost his rookie season to an Achilles' injury, but the former first-round pick has too much potential to ignore, especially with DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon now playing elsewhere. Grab him in the later rounds as a WR5.

  • Posted: 5/25/2017 8:38am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') has been impressive in organized team activities, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'The big thing for him is the confidence in his Achilles', and I think he's got that right now,' Gruden said. 'The past two days he's looked better and better. It looks like he can run down the field. He made a good catch down the sideline today and (he has) strong hands, we know that about him.'

    Huddle Up: Doctson flashed enough talent to be chosen 22nd overall in the NFL draft last season. He'll have to compete for a larger role, but he's definitely worth consideration in the latter rounds of drafts.

  • Posted: 5/22/2017 4:35pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') will be a full participant during organized team activities this week, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Doctson was limited to two catches and 66 yards this past season because of his injury but may have the chance to start in 2017 after DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon left in free agency. Owners should monitor his situation during training camp to see what his role will be and can consider him a No. 4 receiver if he is a starter.

  • Posted: 5/19/2017 6:48pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') has looked 'quick and healthy' in offseason activities, according to JP Finlay of CSNMidAtlantic.com

    Huddle Up: With Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson no longer in Washington, Doctson should see plenty of snaps. He has plenty of upside, but this will essentially be his rookie year thanks to last season's injury. Draft him as WR4 and hope he catches on quickly.

  • Posted: 2/27/2017 6:55am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') is expected to be 100 percent by the end of March.

    Huddle Up: Doctson could have a large role with the team with Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson likely to hit the open market. He's a WR4 option with upside depending on where he lands on the depth chart.

  • Posted: 2/24/2017 8:33am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') was doing drills at the team's facility Friday, Feb. 24.

    Huddle Up: Doctson could have a large role next year with Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson potentially gone. He'll have to prove it in camp, though. He's a WR4 option with upside depending on how things shake out.

  • Posted: 2/8/2017 7:50pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson should get over 100 targets next season if DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon depart via free agency, according to CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler, who also projected 65 catches for 850 yards for the team's first-round pick last spring.

    Huddle Up: The Redskins presumably drafted Doctson with an eye towards 2017, knowing both Jackson and Garcon could walk after this season. Unfortunately, the No. 22 overall pick played just two games as a rookie and was limited the majority of offseason/training camp with an Achilles' issue. Doctson does profile as a strong red-zone option, however, so Tandler's 'reasonable goal' of eight touchdown catches next season - if healthy - is not unrealistic. Doctson should be considered a WR5 at the moment.

  • Posted: 1/25/2017 8:25am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') has yet to be cleared to run full without restrictions, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Doctson is one to watch in training camp after his rookie season was virtually lost due to the injury. He could be a WR5 flyer in drafts.

  • Posted: 1/3/2017 9:53am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (foot) suggested to reporters he has not been given a certain diagnosis other than tendinitis and he 'definitely' feels a difference after resting the injury since landing on the Reserve/Injured list prior to Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Doctson was reportedly dealing with an Achilles' issue initially, but said doctors told him the injury was to his foot and 'unique'. The rookie suffered the injury in May and tried to gut it out for two games before he was shut down. With Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson set to hit free agency and the Redskins unlikely to retain either one, Doctson will be counted on to be no worse than the team's second-best receiver in 2017. Assuming good health, he'll have low-end WR3 upside in such a scenario.

  • Posted: 10/17/2016 9:54pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') is expected to remain sidelined from practice and competition for the next several weeks, head coach Jay Gruden said Monday, Oct. 17. He is not expected to return until at least Week 10 against the Minnesota Vikings Nov. 13 after the team's bye.

    Huddle Up: Doctson has a ton of potential, but he shouldn't be on anyone's radar right now in redraft leagues. In long-term fantasy formats he has plenty of upside.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 8:03am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') is expected to miss a few more weeks, but the Redskins think he can avoid the Reserve/Injured list.

    Huddle Up: Doctson likely will not have a big role in the passing game this season if he is able to return from his injury and probably can be dropped in most leagues.

  • Posted: 10/7/2016 9:10pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') could land on the Reserve/Injured list if his injury persists, but head coach Jay Gruden said he is hoping to avoid placing Doctson on injured reserve.

    Huddle Up: It remains unclear when Doctson will play, and outside of keeper formats, he should be left on the waiver wire for the time being.

  • Posted: 10/6/2016 5:44pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') did not practice Thursday, Oct. 6.

    Huddle Up: The Redskins are taking a cautious approach with the rookie, and it remains to be seen when Doctson will return. Stash him in keeper formats, but he can be left on waivers in redraft leagues.

  • Posted: 9/29/2016 1:47pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') did not practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Jay Gruden has already said he's worried about Doctson's Achilles' ailment, which may keep Doctson out for a few weeks. Jordan Reed, DeSean Jackson, Jamison Crowder and Pierre Garcon will still see the majority of targets with Doctson out. The rookie receiver should remain on your fantasy bench for the foreseeable future.

  • Posted: 9/28/2016 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.

  • Posted: 9/23/2016 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.

  • Posted: 9/22/2016 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.
