Redskins | Jordan Reed has toe injury

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 16:12:22 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list because of significant toe soreness, according to a team spokesperson. He will be evaluated further before he is cleared to practice because the team wants to avoid any possible long-term injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see how long Reed will be sidelined because of this toe injury. Reed is a bit of a risky option for owners because of his injury history but is a No. 1 fantasy tight end when he is healthy.

Redskins | Jordan Reed placed on PUP list

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 14:44:14 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (undisclosed) was placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Reed can return to practice at any point during training camp, so owners should monitor the situation. He has dealt with injuries during his career but has been a very successful play when he is healthy. He has recorded 17 touchdowns in the last two seasons and should be considered a solid No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Redskins | Ryan Grant still receiving kudos

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 10:47:54 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Ryan Grant has yet to lose the confidence of his coaching staff despite making only 39 catches in three seasons in large part because he is the best route-runner on the team this year or last year, including Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson. "I'm easily Ryan Grant's biggest fan. He's always been our best pure route-runner out of everyone. … He's been a consummate pro. He says nothing and he works all the time. He's gotten a bad rap for situations that weren't completely his fault. The world will never know that," receivers coach Mike Hilliard said.

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Jay Gruden said last month Grant needed more opportunities, but it will be hard for him to get those with Terrelle Pryor, Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson almost certain to occupy the first three spots on the depth chart. In short, he'll need an injury to one of those three to be fantasy-viable and, even then, he would probably a fringe option at best.

Redskins | Rob Kelley to hold to starting job 'for now'

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 10:11:15 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley will likely begin the season as the starter "for now" if he shows he has improved over last season, according to ESPN.com's John Keim.

Fantasy Tip: At the very least, rookie Samaje Perine was drafted to help Washington with its red zone woes. More likely, however, the Redskins saw a potential upgrade. Kelley will be lucky if he can keep this from becoming a split backfield and could easily be Perine's backup no later than midseason. He is almost certainly being overdrafted as a RB3/4 this summer.

Redskins | Terrelle Pryor destined for Pro Bowl?

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 08:08:47 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor may be new to the receiver position, but former position coach Al Saunders would be "shocked if he isn't in the Pro Bowl," according to ESPN.com's John Keim.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins need to replace a pair of 1,000-yard receivers in Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson, and there is a strong belief Pryor and Jamison Crowder will be able to do the job. At 6-4 and nearly 230 pounds with incredible athleticism, Pryor should be able to dominate in the red zone as well in a way Garcon and Jackson could not. He should be a solid WR2 in fantasy, capable of being a WR1.

Redskins | Josh Doctson key for Kirk Cousins?

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 20:26:23 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson's progression this season could help determine if QB Kirk Cousins decides to sign a long-term extension, according to JP Finlay of CSNMidAtlantic.com.

Fantasy Tip: Doctson should be the fourth option in a pass-happy attack, and he can be considered an upside WR5 coming off an injury-plagued rookie year.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins wants to stay in Washington

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 16:54:56 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins' first choice is to stay with the Redskins despite both sides not agreeing on a long-term deal. Cousins said he would love to stay in Washington long term and has hope for getting a deal done next offseason.

Fantasy Tip: The bottom line is that Cousins will still play for the Redskins in 2017. He's set to make a lot of money next year, though, whether that's from the Redskins or someone else. As for fantasy, Cousins has QB1 appeal after averaging 4,541.5 yards and 27 touchdowns the last two seasons, not to mention he's scored nine times on the ground in that span.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins was offered big money

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 13:47:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was offered $53 million guaranteed as part of the Redskins' offer in early May, according to team president Bruce Allen.

Fantasy Tip: We don't know who Cousins will be playing for next season, but we do know that team will need to break the bank in order to sign him. He has quickly turned into one of the most prolific quarterbacks in the NFL over the last two years. View him as a low-end QB1 heading into 2017.

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 13:38:35 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Cousins will be the beneficiary of a significant payday next offseason. As for this season, he remains a QB1 candidate despite losing both DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins' best offer came in May

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 06:04:57 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins' best contract offer was received in May, which was higher than $20 million per year. The contract only added one guaranteed year, but it was worth less than the $23.9 million he's slated to make via the franchise tag.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins has averaged 4,542 yards, 27 touchdowns and 11.5 interceptions the last two seasons. He has completed nearly 70 percent of his passes in that span and sits just below the elite tier as a QB1 in fantasy.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins open to deal after season

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 12:40:27 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is not expected to sign a long-term deal before the 4 p.m. ET deadline Monday, July 17. However, Cousins is reportedly open to doing a deal with the team after this season as there has been "a positive, constructive tone" to recent contract talks, per a source.

Fantasy Tip: It appears one of the NFL's longest ongoing sagas will continue for another few months. Cousins reportedly wants to bet on himself yet again in hopes he can maximize his earnings and potentially reset the market at quarterback as a free agent in 2018. In fantasy, he has settled in as a midrange QB1.
