Washington Redskins QB Kyle Allen said Tuesday, March 31, he expects to compete for a starting job for the 2020 season. 'I think that's an awesome opportunity,' he said.
Huddle Up: Allen was largely unimpressive over 12 starts and 13 games with the Carolina Panthers last season. He completed just 62.0 percent of his pass attempts for 3,322 yards and 17 touchdowns against 16 interceptions. Sophomore Dwyane Haskins projects as the starter under center, and neither player will be worth much thought for fantasy purposes.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins will open training camp as the No. 1 quarterback but will have to compete for the job during the preseason, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Huddle Up: Haskins had some success at the end of the 2019 season but will have to show is new coach that he can be the starter for the team. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins the job.

Free-agent RB Peyton Barber (Buccaneers) signed a two-year deal worth $3 million with the Washington Redskins Tuesday, March 24. Barber receives $600,000 in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Barber will go from a timeshare with Ronald Jones in Tampa Bay to an even more crowded backfield in Washington. He's unlikely to be fantasy relevant while working behind Adrian Peterson, Derrius Guice and Bryce Love when all are healthy.

Free-agent TE Jordan Reed (Redskins) is meeting with the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, March 12, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks have Greg Olsen and Will Dissly on the roster, so Reed probably would not have a big role if he signed with the Seahawks. Reed can be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end in 2020 because of his injury history.

Washington Redskins RB Bryce Love (knee) said Thursday, March 5, that his goal is to be participating in OTAs.
Huddle Up: A knee injury cost Love his entire rookie season, but he was electrifying in college when healthy. With the injury history of Derrius Guice and age of Adrian Peterson, Love could find his way to a meaningful role in the backfield in 2020. In the meantime, he's a lottery ticket in dynasty leagues.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) should be ready for the start of the 2020 season, according to vice president of player personnel Kyle Smith.
Huddle Up: Guice has struggled with injuries since entering the NFL and was limited to five games this past season. He did rush for 245 yards and two touchdowns in those games. He may be part of a committee at running back in 2020, so fantasy players should monitor the situation during the offseason. He can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

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.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent RB Peyton Barber said he would like to re-sign with the Buccaneers this offseason.
Huddle Up: Barber shared playing time with Ronald Jones this season and finished with 470 rushing yards and six touchdowns. He probably will not be able to find a starting job this offseason and may be avoided in most fantasy drafts.

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 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.
