Fantasy Tip: Head coach Jay Gruden has already said he's worried about Doctson's Achilles' ailment, which may keep Doctson out for a few weeks. Jordan Reed, DeSean Jackson, Jamison Crowder and Pierre Garcon will still see the majority of targets with Doctson out. The rookie receiver should remain on your fantasy bench for the foreseeable future.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was limited in practice last week, too, and still ended up catching five passes on eight targets for 96 yards and a touchdown. Don't let the limited status fool you. Jackson may not be quite at 100 percent heading into Week 4, but he's still capable of putting up WR2 numbers in a favorable matchup versus the Cleveland Browns.

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said he is concerned that WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') is still bothered by his Achilles' tendon injury. Gruden indicated that Doctson could be shut down for a few weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Doctson has not received much playing time over the first few weeks of the season, so there is a good chance he sits out until the injury heals. He should only have value in keeper leagues at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should return to practice at some point this week and likely will be able to play in Week 4. He has recorded at least 96 yards in two of his three games this season and should be a solid No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.

Fantasy Tip: Doctson was not able to play in Week 3 and will need to practice this week if he wants to play in Week 4. He has received limited playing time this season and would not be a strong fantasy option if he is active this week.

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland (ankle) suffered strained tendons in his right ankle in Week 3 and not a high ankle sprain as originally feared. Breeland is considered week to week with the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Together with Jamison Crowder, Jackson appears to have re-ignited the Redskins' receiving game. If you can put up with the mercurial team and its numbers every week, Jackson is a WR1 or WR2 who can put up solid numbers.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is the top runner on an otherwise mediocre Redskins rushing attack. This was a better week for that attack, but it misses Alfred Morris. Jones deserves some fantasy consideration, even if it's just as an RB3 or a substitute on a bye week.
