Redskins | Jordan Reed endorses Kirk Cousins

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 19:16:47 -0800

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed said bringing back impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins should be a top priority this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Reed is one of the best fantasy tight ends in the game when he isn't dealing with injuries. If Cousins is back under center in Washington in 2017, Reed should remain a TE1 in all formats.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins wants tag?

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 20:12:14 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins would prefer to receive the franchise tag again in 2017 because he doesn't want to remain with the team long term, according to former Redskins officials.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins will likely be back in Washington in 2017 one way or the other, and he has shown over the last two years he is capable of providing big numbers. He will be a borderline QB1 next season.

Redskins | Kenny Stills an option for Redskins?

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 20:13:21 -0800

Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Kenny Stills is a possible replacement for Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson, according to The Washington Post's Mark Bullock.

Fantasy Tip: Stills is a deep threat in the same vein as D-Jax. At just 24, though, he is entering the prime of his career and has a chance to become a more reliable contributor after his big-play 2016 showing. We have seen flashes from Stills in New Orleans and Miami, but he was a supporting cast member rather than the focal point. While much remains unsettled, his base value is in the low-end WR3 to No. 4 conversation, with an upside of a midrange WR2.

Redskins | Kenny Britt a target for Washington?

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 19:57:20 -0800

Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent WR Kenny Britt is a possible replacement for Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Pierre Garcon, according to The Washington Post's Mark Bullock.

Fantasy Tip: Britt is more of a glorified possession receiver in the mold of Garcon and is coming off one of his best NFL seasons. Assuming he lands with Washington and QB Kirk Cousins is retained, we're still looking at nothing better than a high-risk WR3 with Britt's injury history.

Redskins | No progress with Kirk Cousins

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 15:56:10 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins and the Redskins have not yet come close to an agreement on a long-term contract, according to sources. Thus, placing the franchise tag on Cousins for a second consecutive year is a real possibility. If Cousins is tagged, he would earn $23.94 million compared to the $19.95 million he earned last season. The goal of both sides, however, is to hammer out a long-term deal.

Fantasy Tip: There's no question Cousins deserves a long-term contract. He has two straight 4,000-yard seasons, including 4,917 yards in 2016 -- a franchise record. In addition, he has led the Redskins to two straight winning seasons while becoming a fixture in QB1 territory of fantasy football leagues. His running ability only adds to the lure. Assuming he does return to Washington, he's a low-end QB1 consideration.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon could fetch $9 million in FA

Sat, 11 Feb 2017 17:00:10 -0800

Impending free-agent WR Pierre Garcon is expected to receive offers in the neighborhood of $9 million per year, according to ESPN.com's John Keim.

Fantasy Tip: The Los Angeles Rams, Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers are among the teams expected to be among the most interested. The price tag would suggest teams view him as a No. 1 receiver, but his best fit would be as a No. 2. It's going to take a bit of a perfect storm in order to break the bank, and he's likely to be no more than a fantasy WR4 regardless of where he lands.

Redskins | Jamison Crowder creating separation

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 21:31:58 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder led all slot receivers in average yards of separation created per target in 2016, and he finished third on the team with 99 targets and had a team-high seven scores.

Fantasy Tip: With Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson potentially leaving in the offseason, Crowder could be primed for a big jump in production. He should be a solid WR3 in 2017, and he will have even more upside in PPR formats.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson open to returning

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 15:09:15 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson said he would like to re-sign with the Redskins this offseason but will accept the best offer he receives in free agency.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson will receive interest from multiple teams once free agency begins, so the Redskins may not able to re-sign him. Jackson is coming off a terrific 2016 season and likely will be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for a team next season. Owners in fantasy leagues can consider Jackson a No. 3 receiver for their teams.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson too inconsistent

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 18:23:33 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson is viewed as too inconsistent by the front office.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was already expected to test the market, and it doesn't sound like Washington is interested in bringing him back. Jackson tends to live or die with big plays, and he will be a boom-or-bust WR3 wherever he lands in 2017.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon a hot commodity

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 18:17:23 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Pierre Garcon is expected to be pursued by the Los Angeles Rams, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon can still do damage underneath as a possession receiver, and he could be a WR3 in PPR formats if he lands with a decent offense. If he is stuck with a rookie quarterback, he should be viewed more as a WR4.

Redskins | Redskins might let Chris Baker walk

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 16:22:38 -0800

Washington Redskins DL Chris Baker is expected "to want significantly more" than the team is willing to pay when he becomes a free agent. Washington is said to be "lukewarm" on the 29-year-old.
