Washington Redskins WR Antonio Gandy-Golden has a knack for coming down with 50/50 balls, and it's something he feels he needs to do. 'During the game not every ball I get is going to be wide open, so just for the quarterback to be confident enough to throw it to me I feel like I have to come down with it,' Gandy-Golden said.
Huddle Up: The 6-foot-4 fourth-round pick of the 2020 NFL Draft is expected to contribute from Day 1 for the new-look Redskins in 2020. Sophomore Terry McLaurin will be the No. 1 option for QB Dwayne Haskins, or whoever is under center to start the year, but AGG could certainly fill the No. 2 role. He's a solid late-round target in deeper redraft leagues and a solid get in all dynasty leagues.

Washington Redskins WR Antonio Gandy-Golden (illness) released a statement Wednesday, May 20, through his agent, announcing the rookie was diagnosed with COVID-19 after a March 24 test.

Washington Redskins head coach Ron Rivera spoke highly of rookie WR Antonio Gandy-Golden, a fourth-round selection. Rivera believes Gandy-Golden can contribute in the red zone and work the middle of the field to keep chains moving. 'He can block, he's a guy that we feel can be a very physical blocker,' Rivera said. Due to that blocking ability along with his knack for making contested catches, the Redskins feel he can contribute immediately and be an ideal compliment to second-year WR Terry McLaurin.
Huddle Up: In another rebuilding year for Washington, it'll be tough for fantasy footballers to rely on Gandy-Golden out of the gate. This big target, however, should grow into his role over time and could be a good stash for dynasty players. Consider him as a flier at the tail-end of drafts in larger leagues.
