Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed was released Thursday, Feb. 20, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Reed wants to play next season, so fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation. He probably will receive interest from teams but is a risky option because of his injury history. Reed could be a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues if he starts for a team.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) has cleared the concussion protocol and plans to play in 2020, according to sources. The Redskins are expected to release Reed this offseason.
Huddle Up: Reed has dealt with multiple injuries during his career, so it is not known if he would receive a lot of interest in free agency. He has posted decent numbers when he has been healthy but probably can be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end if he is able to find a starting job.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson's option was exercised by the team Wednesday, Feb. 19.
Huddle Up: Peterson will have a $2.25 million base salary and will count $3,109,375 against the salary cap. Peterson will serve as insurance as Derrius Guice must stay healthy. Peterson has RB5 appeal, but he has little upside.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) is still going through the concussion protocol, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Huddle Up: Reed likely will be released this offseason and his future in the NFL is uncertain because of his injury history. Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation but should not count on him as a starting option next season.

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson will be waived, according to a source Friday, Feb. 14. The team will create $2.5 million in salary cap savings with $6 million in dead money by releasing Richardson.
Huddle Up: Richardson struggled since coming over from Seattle, catching only 48 passes for 507 yards and four TDs combined in his two seasons in D.C. He'll join the free-agent wideout pool, and could have some bounce-back low-end WR fantasy appeal depending on where he winds up.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) has yet to make a final decision on playing in 2020, but he will likely be cut to save $8.5 million even if he does decide to continue his career, according to John Keim of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Injuries, including numerous concussions, have ruined Reed's promising career. It is hard to imagine any scenario where he can become a reliable, productive fantasy option again.

Washington Redskins RB Bryce Love (knee) could be the third-down back next season, according to John Keim of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Love spent his rookie year recovering from a torn ACL, but he was one of the most explosive collegiate running backs when healthy. He's worth stashing in dynasty formats.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson is 'likely' to have the second year of his contract picked up, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Peterson topped 1,000 yards from scrimmage in 2019, running for 898 yards and five scores. Derrius Guice should lead the backfield if he can stay healthy, but Peterson can be a RB3 or flex option if thrust into the starting role.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins will begin the era of head coach Ron Rivera as the team's No. 1 quarterback, according to senior vice president of player development Doug Williams Friday, Feb. 7. 'The new staff knows that Dwayne Haskins is the starting quarterback here,' Williams said. 'The only thing that can happen is for Dwayne to give it back to them. It's up to him to learn the playbook, wear the coaches out. He's got to stay at the facility until they run him out of the building. ... 'Dwayne has a long way to go. But like I told him, he was doing what we expected him to do. He was ascending. Hopefully the way he goes now, he keeps going up. All eyes are going to be on him. At the same time you've got a new coaching staff and they're not married to him.'
Huddle Up: Haskins struggled in his rookie season, finishing the 2019 campaign with 1,365 yards and seven touchdowns against seven interceptions while completing 58.6 percent of his passes. It seems as though he'll be given the opportunity to earn the starting job, but the new coaching staff won't hesitate to pull the plug if he's not performing at the desired level. He's a risky QB2 without much upside and dynasty managers should be exploring trade options while there's still some hope.

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) said Saturday, Feb. 1, he's 'very much lucky to be alive' following his November, 2018 broken leg and subsequent infection. Smith is now past the health issues, and a return to the field is possible next season. 'There's enough there that I can go out there and play,' Smith said. 'Knowing that, yeah, failure is a possibility ... I need to prove that I can come back and play quarterback in the NFL, and if I can do that, that would be great and it'll get figured out.'
Huddle Up: Smith's progress this offseason will obviously be key, and we'll see how it shapes the D.C. QB outlook with Dwayne Haskins preparing for his sophomore season.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) said he has fully recovered from the knee injury that sent him to the Reserve/Injured list at the end of last season, and he is focused on proving he can be a reliable back. 'I want to show the whole thing,' Guice said. 'I want everybody to see everything.'
Huddle Up: Guice has been plagued by knee injuries since entering the NFL, but he has shown flashes of his RB1 potential when he has been on the field. He should enter 2020 as the starter, but he will be a high-risk, high-reward pick because of the injury history.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) could attempt to play in 2020, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Reed has been plagued by injuries throughout his career, and with concussions piling up in recent years, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him call it quits. If he does try to play, he'll be no more than a DFS flier for the few games he is actually healthy.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins will need to earn the starting job leading up the 2020 season, according to comments made by head coach Ron Rivera, who said that, 'We won't know until we get ready to open up in September,' while also mentioning that the team has 'good veteran quarterbacks that [will] get some opportunities to play.'
Huddle Up: Haskins did fairly well down the stretch, but he was hardly lighting up defenses. Still, this might just be Rivera trying to keep Haskins motivated and hungry leading into the Ohio State product's second NFL campaign.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (toe) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Peterson will receive most of the work at running back against the Dallas Cowboys and could be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and has been ruled out for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Case Keenum will be the starting quarterback for the Redskins this week but probably is only a starting option in two-quarterback leagues.

Washington Redskins WR Terry McLaurin (concussion) on Friday, Dec. 27, was ruled out of the team's Week 17 game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: As feared, the rookie's stellar debut season has come to an early end, and his fantasy owners still playing will need to find a Week 17 replacement for his WR2 production.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (toe) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Peterson likely is receiving a day off and should return to practice Friday, Dec. 27. He has played well this season when he has been the main running back for the Redskins and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in leagues.

Washington Redskins WR Terry McLaurin (concussion) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: No real surprise here as McLaurin just entered the concussion protocol Tuesday after reportedly suffering the injury late in Week 16. And while that casts much doubt over his Week 17 availability, we'll look for any signs of progress over the next few days.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson said Thursday, Dec. 26, he wants to keep playing. 'I can see myself playing to 40,' the 34-year-old running back said. 'People look at that and say 'oh my god, that's crazy,' but they've been doing that for the past two years and -- surprise, surprise -- I'm still able to do it at a high level.'
Huddle Up: AD is 17th in the league in rushing and needs 180 more yards in the season finale for his ninth 1,000-yard season. He remains a RB3/flex option in the right matchups, but we'll see what his D.C. future is with a new coaching regime expected to take over this offseason.

Washington Redskins WR Terry McLaurin (concussion) was placed in the league's concussion protocol Tuesday, Dec. 24, after suffering a head injury late in the game in Week 16. He will be re-evaluated Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Even though it doesn't make much sense from a long-term perspective, it's conceivable the rookie will get a chance to play in a meaningless Week 17 game against the Dallas Cowboys in hopes he can reach 1,000 yards receiving. (He's 81 yards shy.) If he plays, he'll be catching passes from the same quarterback that fueled his early-season breakout in Case Keenum.

Washington Redskins QB Case Keenum is expected to start the Week 17 game against the Dallas Cowboys with QB Dwayne Haskins (ankle) ruled out by interim head coach Bill Callahan.
Huddle Up: Keenum faces a tough matchup against a Dallas defense which will be missing Leighton Vander Esch, but will also be playing with a lot of desperation. It isn't a good matchup for fantasy owners in seasonal play or DFS.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins (ankle) will not be able to play in the Week 17 game, according to interim head coach Bill Callahan.
Huddle Up: Case Keenum likely will be the starting quarterback in Week 17 and posted solid numbers in relief last week. Fantasy players should be able to find better options for their lineups and can keep Keenum on the bench.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins (ankle) is believed to have suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 16 based on initial analysis, but he is scheduled to undergo an MRI and other tests Monday, Dec. 23, to confirm the prognosis.
Huddle Up: Haskins reportedly wants to play in the season finale, but owners should consider him highly unlikely to do so if the initial prognosis was correct. Case Keenum would likely start in place Haskins if the rookie can't go and be a serviceable QB2 option in Week 17 versus the Dallas Cowboys.

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed eight times for 34 yards in Week 16 against the New York Giants and he added four grabs for 18 yards on his four targets.
Huddle Up: Thompson has been a decent PPR fantasy option when healthy, but it's hard to gauge his value heading into 2020 until we see what the personnel will look like. He'll try and finish up strong in Week 17 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Washington Redskins WR Steven Sims registered six catches for 64 yards and two touchdowns on a team-high 10 targets in Week 16 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Sims showed out and surprised for anyone who rolled the dice on him in deeper fantasy leagues and DFS play. He'll look to continue finishing up strong in Week 17 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Washington Redskins WR Terry McLaurin finished with seven grabs and 86 yards on nine targets in Week 16 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: McLaurin is up to 58 grabs for 916 yards and seven touchdowns across his 14 games. He'll look for 84 yards in Week 17 against the Dallas Cowboys to cap off his rookie season over 1,000 yards.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson ran 15 times for 36 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the New York Giants while adding two grabs for 19 yards on his two targets.
Huddle Up: Peterson held onto the starting tailback job down the stretch, but it's unlikely he'll be up for a starting gig heading into 2020. He went undrafted in many leagues only to emerge as a legit fantasy option, so perhaps he'll surprise again next season.

Washington Redskins QB Case Keenum replaced the injured QB Dwayne Haskins (ankle) in the second half of the Week 16 game against the New York Giants and led a rally to force overtime, finishing 16-of-22 for 158 yards and a touchdown while also running for a score.
Huddle Up: It's uncertain if Haskins will be ready for the finale against the Dallas Cowboys, but if not it could be Keenum closing up shop for the Redskins on the 2019 season.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Week 16 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation to see if Haskins will be able to return to the field. Case Keenum probably will be the starting quarterback if Haskins misses Week 17 but is not a starting option in fantasy leagues.
