• Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 10/21/18 5:38am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle, shoulder) is expected to play in Week 7's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Peterson was listed as questionable on the injury report after logging two limited practice sessions during the week. He is averaging 4.4 yards per carry this season and should see a similar workload to last week because Chris Thompson (rib, knee) is likely to miss his second consecutive game. Peterson should be viewed as a solid RB2 option in all fantasy formats.

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson rushed for 99 yards on 24 carries in the Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys and he added one grab for eight yards.

    Huddle Up: Peterson was likely playing with a little extra motivation after the team passed him over as a free agent. He'll try to keep it going heading into another divisional game against the New York Giants on the road.

  • Alex Smith - QB
    Posted 10/21/18 7:25pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith completed 14-of-25 passes for 178 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: It was a defensive slog and typical NFC East battle with plenty of defense and not many big plays. Smith heads into Week 8 on the road against the Giants as more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues.

  • Josh Doctson - WR
    Posted 10/21/18 7:45pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson posted three receptions for 42 yards on a team-high six targets in the Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Doctson saw a slight uptick in production with Jamison Crowder and Paul Richardson sidelined, but he still needs to do way more before using him on a regular basis in fantasy. The Redskins travel to meet the Giants in Week 8.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 10/21/18 7:41pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed went for two receptions and 43 yards on four targets in the Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Reed was third on the team in targets in this one, as they have some injury problems among the receivers corps. However, no one really did much in the pass game in this defensive battle. Reed should be treated as a low-end TE1 heading into the Week 8 game against the New York Giants.

  • Kapri Bibbs - RB
    Posted 10/21/18 7:34pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Kapri Bibbs rushed twice for 13 yards in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys and he added four receptions for a team-high 43 yards and a touchdown on a screen pass.

    Huddle Up: Bibbs has scored twice over the past three games, once on the ground and once in the air. Still, he doesn't see enough touches to warrant using outside of the deepest fantasy leagues heading into Week 8 against the New York Giants.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 10/20/18 6:25pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle, shoulder) has helped the offense more than head coach Jay Gruden expected. 'He's mentally tough,' Gruden said. 'He's physically tough. And he makes us better.'

    Huddle Up: Peterson is averaging 4.4 yards per carry and has topped 90 rushing yards in three of his five games, proving he still has some gas left in the tank. He is expected to play through his injuries and face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 7, and he can be deployed as a RB2.

  • Chris Thompson - RB
    Posted 10/20/18 9:14pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib, knee) isn't expected to play against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 7, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: With Thompson unlikely to suit up and Adrian Peterson in line to play, the latter should be a solid bet for RB2 production.

  • 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.
