Fantasy Tip: Jackson can be big-play dependent at times, but the speedster is still worth drafting as a WR3.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Thompson is dealing with a minor injury and wants to be ready for the start of the regular season. Thompson is expected to be the third-down back this season if Matt Jones is healthy and could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Doctson and Crowder have missed multiple practices because of injury and may not play again until Week 1 if they are healthy. Both receivers are probably No. 5 receivers in most fantasy leagues since the Redskins have other targets in the passing game.

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') could take the field as early as the Redskins' final preseason game. Head coach Jay Gruden said the "total expectation" is for Doctson to be good to go by Week 1, although he is not at 100% health yet. Gruden does believe that Doctson is in a good place from a mental standpoint.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds positive, but it will be more positive when Doctson is taken off the PUP list. He'll be part of a crowded receiving corps whenever he is ready. Jordan Reed, DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon, Jamison Crowder and more will all be in the mix. There may not be enough opportunity for Doctson to achieve more than WR5 numbers.

Fantasy Tip: Soreness isn't anything to frown about. Crowder should be back to full health soon. He could be a top-three wideout for the Redskins this year and holds more value in PPR formats after catching 59 passes in his rookie season last year. It's safer to draft him as merely a WR5 option in such leagues, however, with Jordan Reed, DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon all demanding targets.

Washington Redskins OT Trent Williams (knee) said he will play in the preseason game against the Buffalo Bills Friday, Aug. 26. Williams missed the first two preseason game because of his knee injury.

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) will sit the rest of the preseason because of a sprained shoulder, according to head coach Jay Gruden. RBs Keith Marshall and Rob Kelley will both get first-team looks in place of Jones.
Fantasy Tip: Now the question is how healthy Jones will be for the start of the regular season, or if he'll even be available for Week 1. He should still be in the low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 conversation as Washington's starter, but keep tabs on his status over the next couple of weeks.

Fantasy Tip: If Doctson is going to miss six games, it will be tough to justify stashing a receiver who will likely be fourth in the pecking order for targets.
