Minnesota Vikings WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) is targeting a Week 10 return against the Dallas Cowboys, which is when he is eligible to come back from the Reserve/Injured list.
Huddle Up: We've seen this movie before. Doctson has a ton of talent, but he cannot stay healthy. As long as Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen are healthy in the Twin Cities there is no reason to pay Doctson any mind.

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson will either be traded or released, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The former first-round pick should land with another team quickly. Keep tabs on him as he could be worth a waiver claim in the right situation.

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 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.

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson posted two grabs for 33 yards in Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles, setting a new career high with 532 yards in 2018.
Huddle Up: Doctson failed to come close to the six touchdowns he posted last season, but he did well considering the Redskins ran through Alex Smith, Colt McCoy, Mark Sanchez and Josh Johnson at the quarterback position this season. His future is still pretty bright.
