Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) is in the league's concussion protocol after sustaining the injury in a preseason game Thursday, Aug. 22.
Huddle Up: Another game, another injury for the star-crossed Reed. The tight end certainly has the talent to produce when healthy, but let another fantasy GM in your league take on the weekly injury risk with Reed.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice rushed 11 times for 44 yards and caught one pass for four yards in a 19-7 preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Aug. 22.
Huddle Up: Guice is Washington's most talented back, but he finds himself with plenty of competition for snaps after missing his rookie season with a knee injury. He is a RB3 with upside in redraft leagues, and he has long-term potential as a RB1 in dynasty formats.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is scheduled to play Thursday, Aug. 22, in a preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons. It's likely to be his only action of the preseason.
Huddle Up: Guice didn't play at all in his rookie season after being selected in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He's being drafted as an RB3 on average, but he's likely to open the season behind veteran Adrian Peterson in the Washington backfield. He has more value in keeper and dynasty leagues, as he may need to wait another full season before leading the backfield.

Washington Redskins QB Case Keenum is on track to the be the Week 1 starter under center, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter Sunday, Aug. 18. Head coach Jay Gruden said Colt McCoy (leg) may not be ready to return from a broken leg until 'two or three weeks into the season.'
Huddle Up: Keenum has much more fantasy appeal than McCoy and boosts the potential of the rest of the Redskins' offense, as well. He'll be a low-end QB2, but he offers more hope for the likes of WRs Josh Doctson, Paul Richardson, Trey Quinn and Terry McLaurin as late-round fliers.

Washington Redskins QB Case Keenum is on a path to being named the Week 1 starter under center, according to Rick Snider of The Washington Post, Tuesday, Aug. 13. Colt McCoy (undisclosed) sat out Tuesday's practice due to what head coach Jay Gruden called soreness. Rookie Dwayne Haskins has still looked 'like the rookie he is,' according to Snider.
Huddle Up: Keenum certainly has more fantasy appeal than McCoy, but Haskins is the only one worth worrying about as a dynasty stash or late-round target in deeper keeper leagues.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins is still chasing QB Colt McCoy and QB Case Keenum in the quaterback competition but still has time to catch them, head coach Jay Gruden said Sunday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: While Haskins has work to do, it sounds like Gruden is hoping the rookie can win the starting gig. Whoever ends up under center for the Redskins is only going to be a low-end QB2 candidate.
Posted 8/06/2019 6:08 pm UTC
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice may not play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 8, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Guice has dealt with multiple injuries since entering the league, so the Redskins probably want to be cautious with him. He may end up splitting carries with Adrian Peterson this season, which would hurt is value. Guice has a chance to be a No. 3 fantasy running back if he receives most of the carries.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) has a minor ankle injury and might miss another day of practice Monday, Aug. 5.
Huddle Up: Peterson is an RB5 devoid of upside with Derrius Guice and Chris Thompson likely ahead of him.
Posted 8/04/2019 10:08 pm UTC
Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy is listed as the starter under center on the team's first depth chart. Case Keenum is slotted in as the backup and rookie Dwayne Haskins is the third-strong quarterback.
Huddle Up: McCoy is the least appealing name of the three for fantasy purposes. The 32-year-old has spent four years in Washington but has started just six games. He completed 63 percent of his passes with three touchdowns and three interceptions last season.
Posted 7/28/2019 5:07 pm UTC
Washington Redskins WR Trey Quinn has impressed the coaching staff this offseason, and coach Jay Gruden said Sunday, July 28, that Quinn has 'got the inside spot (the slot starting role) pretty much locked down.'
Huddle Up: The wide-receiver position is wide open, fantasy wise, in D.C., and Quinn is a late-round flier with plenty of upside to definitely consider.
Posted 7/23/2019 4:07 pm UTC
Washington Redskins LB Mason Foster is being released Tuesday, July 23.
Huddle Up: Foster led the team with 131 total tackles last season, including 81 solo stops, but now will be looking for a new home at age 30.
Posted 7/14/2019 5:07 pm UTC
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (hamstring) indicated that his hamstring injury is not serious.
Huddle Up: Guice could start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list but likely will not miss a lot of practice time. Guice probably will have to share playing time with Adrian Peterson this season but could still be a No. 3 fantasy running back if healthy.
Posted 7/09/2019 6:07 am UTC
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed was clearly not healthy in 2018, playing in 13 games while playing through multiple injuries. When he is 100 percent, he might be the most dynamic receiver on the roster.
Huddle Up: Reed had a decrease in production when he was on the field, but the Redskins also rolled out four different quarterbacks in 2018. Reed showed what he can do in 2015 when he had career-bests with 87 grabs, 952 yards and eight touchdowns. He has the potential to be a top-5 fantasy option at his position if he can stay healthy. Unfortunately, that's a giant 'if'.

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson said he expects to test the free-agent market next year after the team declined the former first-rounder's fifth-year contract option. 'I think I'm hitting free agency next year. I won't be the first, won't be the last,' Doctson said. 'It's nothing to be sad about, be mad about. Someone wants you there, so it's all love.' The 26-year-old will play out the 2019 season on a cap hit just under $3.2 million.
Huddle Up: Doctson has 1,100 yards and eight touchdowns off of 81 career receptions. The Redskins took two wide receivers in the 2019 NFL Draft and veteran Paul Richardson also returns. The receiving corps is expected to work with either veteran QB Case Keenum or rookie Dwayne Haskins this season, with either likely limiting the fantasy returns for their pass catchers. Doctson could return to relevance on a new, better team in 2020.

Washington Redskins WR Trey Quinn landed on the Reserve/Injured list twice in his rookie season, which limited him to only three games last year. Nevertheless, receivers coach Ike Hilliard is one of a growing list of people who considers Quinn to be a breakout candidate for the 2019 season.
Huddle Up: Quinn really only played significant snaps in two games (Week 11 and Week 12), but he made enough of an impression to help Washington feel better about letting Jamison Crowder leave via free agency. Last year's Mr. Irrelevant is custom-made for the slot with top-end short-area quickness and sticky hands, and he is being asked to fill the same role that allowed Crowder to average 64 catches over the previous three seasons. Quinn boasts WR3 upside in PPR formats this season.

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) said he hopes to play football again, but he has more steps to conquer before that. Smith talked about an external fixator that came from Siberia that will 'save my leg, help me heal, allow me to walk again and hopefully play football again.'
Huddle Up: Smith has no fantasy value at this point, but we send our well wishes to him in his recovery from a devastating leg injury.
Posted 6/21/2019 6:06 am UTC
Washington Redskins WR Trey Quinn has 'taken over the inside slot role,' according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Gruden didn't stop there, praising Quinn's confidence, quickness, hands, physicality and toughness. This isn't the first time Gruden has lavished praise on Quinn, and it's clear the coach wants him to be a key cog in the passing attack. With no frontline talent ahead of him at receiver, Quinn has a chance to be a frequent target of Case Keenum or Dwayne Haskins. Keep an eye on Quinn during the preseason.
Posted 6/18/2019 6:06 am UTC
Washington Redskins WR Robert Davis (knee, leg) is likely to be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list rather than be ready for the start of training camp.
Huddle Up:
Posted 6/09/2019 2:06 am UTC
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) will 'be the guy right away' in the backfield if he looks healthy in training camp, in the opinion of John Keim of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Adrian Peterson is still in the mix, but if healthy, Guice offers versatility and big-play potential that Peterson can no longer match. Guice's exact role is up in the air, but he has the best chance to emerge as Washington's lead back. He has RB2 upside.
Posted 6/06/2019 6:06 pm UTC
Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine was considered the 'most impressive back this spring' by head coach Jay Gruden, according to ESPN's John Keim.
Huddle Up: Perine has essentially been a league-average back since entering the league in 2017 and contributes very little in the passing game. Furthermore, Adrian Peterson, Derrius Guice and Chris Thompson are almost assuredly going to be the top three backs this fall. While owners should keep an eye out for more praise from Gruden on Perine moving forward, he'll be lucky to be active on game day more than a handful of times this fall barring injuries to the players in front of him on the depth chart.
Posted 6/04/2019 11:06 pm UTC
Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) was in full uniform at the team's minicamp session Tuesday, June 4, but he was limited to individual workouts. The veteran wideout stood to the side during 7-on-7 drills.
Huddle Up: Richardson caught 20 of 35 targets for 262 yards and two touchdowns through seven games before having his season shut down. He'll need to get in plenty of work this offseason with new QBs Case Keenum and Dwayne Haskins before being considered a fantasy option.
Posted 6/04/2019 4:06 pm UTC
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) did not participate in the team's minicamp practice Tuesday, June 4, and was spotted in the injury-rehab area.
Huddle Up: Reed has missed an average of 5.2 games per season over his six-year career and has finished as a top-16 fantasy tight end only twice. Look elsewhere for your fantasy tight end(s) in 2019.
Posted 6/04/2019 4:06 pm UTC
Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson participated in the team's minicamp Tuesday, June 4, and looks to be in 'pretty good shape,' according to a national reporter.
Huddle Up: Peterson continues to defy Father Time at age 34, but his 2019 fantasy outlook is clouded by the expected return of Derrius Guice, who is in line to assume the lead-back role in D.C. after missing his rookie campaign with a knee injury. Third-down back Chris Thompson also is in the mix, relegating Peterson to RB4/5 territory on draft boards.
Posted 5/31/2019 1:05 am UTC
Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ankle) said he has occasional soreness in his leg but feels better than he has in a long time.
Huddle Up: Thompson's role in the offense diminished last year, and he appears to be strictly a third-down back at this point. He's a late-round target in PPR formats.
Posted 5/21/2019 12:05 am UTC
Washington Redskins QB Case Keenum received the first snap during team drills Monday, May 20.
Huddle Up: Keenum will compete with Dwayne Haskins and Colt McCoy for the starting quarterback job during training camp. Fantasy players probably should avoid the Redskins quarterback situation in drafts, but Haskins likely will have some value in keeper leagues.
Posted 5/20/2019 6:05 pm UTC
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) has reportedly 'made good progress' and is expected to take part fully in training camp, according to comments made by head coach Jay Gruden on Monday, May 20. 'Derrius is coming along very well. We're just trying to make sure that leg - his quad and everything - is full strength before we let him go. That will probably be another thing we'll wait for training camp as well,' Gruden said.
Huddle Up: Guice returns to a much more crowded backfield than the one he left after tearing his ACL last August, as the team has since added Adrian Peterson and Bryce Love to the mix to go along with Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson. The 2018 second-rounder will likely share early-down reps with Peterson if he holds up and could eventually emerge as the starter later in the season if he finds his pre-injury form. Owners should consider him a late-round lottery ticket in fantasy drafts.
Posted 5/01/2019 9:05 pm UTC
Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson has been informed that his fifth-year option will not be exercised this offseason, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Doctson is coming off a decent 2018 season but has not posted more than 550 yards in any of his three seasons. He likely will be a starting receiver for the Redskins this upcoming season and could be a late-round option in some fantasy leagues.
Posted 4/27/2019 11:04 pm UTC
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and could be ready to practice before the start of training camp, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Guice was the starting running back last season before the injury, but his role is uncertain with Adrian Peterson and Bryce Love on the roster. Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation, but he could be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back if he receives a majority of the touches.
Posted 3/24/2019 3:03 am UTC
Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson called his 2018 season 'decent' and believes he is capable of more in 2019.
Huddle Up: Peterson rushed for 1,042 yards last year, but with Derrius Guice expected to be fully recovered from a knee injury, Peterson looks like more of a handcuff than a fantasy starter.
