Jordan Reed - TEPosted 8/20/17 2:12pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Sunday, Aug. 20.
Huddle Up: Reed has missed the entire training camp because of his toe injury but should be on the field this week. Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Reed suffers any setbacks. Reed is a No. 1 fantasy tight end in all leagues but comes with some risk because of his injury history.
Samaje Perine - RBPosted 8/19/17 9:18am ET
Washington Redskins rookie RB Samaje Perine impressed the team with the way he bounced back from some miscues in the team's preseason opener on Thursday, Aug. 10, versus the Baltimore Ravens - both with how he responded in the game and during practice this week.
Huddle Up: Perine fumbled, dropped a pass and struggled in pass protection in his first NFL game, and ESPN's John Keim speculated shortly thereafter that 'a gap' existed between Rob Kelley and the rookie for the starting job. That would appear to still be the case, but Perine is a powerful runner who will continue to get opportunities in what should be a pretty good offense. He's well worth a late-round pick as a high-upside RB5.
Rob Kelley - RBPosted 8/19/17 7:33pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley had nine carries for nine yards and one catch for five yards against the Green Bay Packers in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 19.
Huddle Up: Kelley doesn't exactly have a stranglehold on the starting gig, and outings like this won't help. The lack of job security makes him best suited as a RB3.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 8/19/17 9:02pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 14 of his 23 pass attempts for 144 yards and a touchdown in a 21-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers in the preseason Saturday. Aug. 19.
Huddle Up: It wasn't the most efficient stat line for Cousins, but on the plus side, he was putting the ball in the air early and often. He has solid weapons around him and should be in line for another season of QB1 production.
Samaje Perine - RBPosted 8/19/17 8:54pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine had eight carries for 45 yards and one catch for 29 yards against the Green Bay Packers in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 19.
Huddle Up: Rob Kelley struggled in the same game, which should only add steam to the Perine hype train. There is a good chance that no Washington back will emerge as an every-week fantasy starter, but Perine is worth a shot as a RB5 in case he becomes top dog in the backfield.
Jamison Crowder - WRPosted 8/19/17 9:17pm ET
Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder had two catches on a team-high five targets for eight yards in a 21-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers Saturday, Aug. 19.
Huddle Up: Crowder has the most experience playing with Kirk Cousins among the current receiving corps, so it shouldn't be a big surprise his number was called often. He has WR2 upside, especially in PPR formats.
Josh Doctson - WRPosted 8/19/17 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.
Jamison Crowder - WRPosted 8/17/17 10:10am ET
Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (hamstring) participated fully in practice Thursday, Aug. 17. He is expected to play in Washington' preseason game Saturday, Aug. 19, according to The Washington Post's Mike Jones.
Huddle Up: Crowder will be an integral part of the Redskins ' passing attack in 2017. He is better suited for PPR leagues as he should see plenty of targets in the slot with the departures of Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson. In such leagues, he has WR2 upside, but it's better to take him as a WR3.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 8/17/17 1:33pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) said he's hoping to return to practice either Monday, Aug. 21, or Tuesday, Aug. 22. Reed added that the orthotics he's been wearing have helped his toe injury.
Huddle Up: Reed is one of the more frustrating players in fantasy football. He's a top-tier tight end when healthy, but he's as fragile as china too. If he's at full health entering the season, he's worthy of being drafted as a high-end TE1 with more value in PPR leagues.
Josh Doctson - WRPosted 8/17/17 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.
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.
