Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins said he is down to 218 pounds after weighing 237 pounds at the start of last season. 'I'll be more dynamic,' he said.
Huddle Up: Haskins started to show signs of life at the end of last season, but it was a lackluster rookie campaign overall. It is encouraging to hear that he has been dedicated this offseason, but he is still no more than a low-end QB2 heading into 2020.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins recently worked out with WR Steven Sims.
Huddle Up: Haskins will be entering his first full season as the starting quarterback and did have some success during the 2019 season. He probably should be considered a low-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback entering training camp.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins ranked 10th among quarterbacks in terms of Pro Football Focus passing grade over Weeks 9-17 of the 2019 season.
Huddle Up: Fantasy-wise, though, it didn't amount to much as he only had two games of 200-plus passing yards and three multiple-TD-pass games during that stretch. Things should be better in Haskins' sophomore season with a better cast of weapons, but don't expect much more than a low-end QB2 season.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins has spent the last few months throwing with WRs Terry McLaurin and Kelvin Harmon and is 'doing a great job' so far this offseason, according to offensive coordinator Scott Turner.
'We're putting a lot of work in, obviously abiding by the rules that the NFL has set forth - four days a week, two hours a day. We're kind of throwing a lot at them. In the beginning of every meeting, we do some quizzes. Just test their retention. When we're talking to him, he is speaking the language. It's pretty easy to tell if they get it or not. Dwayne's doing a great job. You can tell he's putting the work in away from the meeting time, and he's working at it and doing as much as he can. ... The time he's putting in with the receivers, Terry and Kelvin, they all have been throwing together for some time now. That's all positive. Obviously as a coach and with me, coming in new and putting in this new offense I'd love to have more time with him, but it is what it is. I think that we're doing a great job with making the most of the situation,' Turner told the writers during a video call Wednesday, May 27.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins said he has dropped 11 pounds this offseason.
Huddle Up: Haskins will be entering training camp as the leading candidate for the starting job and should win the job. He played well at times during his rookie season and should be able to improve on his status. He can be considered a No. 2 quarterback in some fantasy leagues.

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 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.
