Fantasy Tip: Jones should be able to recover just fine from his sore knee. He's expected to back up Alfred Morris this season, and should give the Redskins an added receiving threat out of the backfield. He could be a sleeper in PPR leagues.

Fantasy Tip: The injury doesn't sound serious, but Jones' powerful running style will likely lead to occasional bumps and bruises. He should see a handful of touches and some work in the passing game as Alfred Morris' backup this year, and he is worth grabbing in the later rounds, especially if you own Morris.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed is ready to shed the narrative that he is injury prone. Reed has missed a total of 12 games over his first two seasons in the NFL. "Right now I'm staying positive and I feel like the injuries are in my past and I'm moving on," Reed said. "I just need to focus on maintenance of my body. I won't let nagging injuries catch up to me. I've made some changes, and I'll be ready," said Reed.
Fantasy Tip: Reed has averaged 10.1 yards per reception on 95 career catches. His upside is undeniable, but his injury concerns will drop his fantasy value considerably. Owners willing to take a flier late in drafts have plenty to gain from Reed.

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder has stood out in training camp, and he was on the receiving end of a 50-yard pass from QB Kirk Cousins Friday, July 31. "He has done a great job," head coach Gruden said. "He's very smart. He went to Duke and understands the passing game, understands route concepts. He has got good, strong hands, [is] very quick in and out of breaks. But he does have a role as a punt returner, for sure."

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III did not throw an incompletion during team drills Friday, July 31. Griffin appears to be going through his progressions and throwing to secondary targets during some the snaps.
Fantasy Tip: Griffin has struggled the last few seasons and is looking to improve his play this season. Owners should consider Griffin as a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues this season and only used against favorable matchups.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin is facing a make-or-break season, and while there is always a chance he could recapture the magic he showed as a rookie, drafting him as more than a mid-level QB2 is asking for disappointment.

Fantasy Tip: Galette posted 10 sacks for New Orleans in 2014 and was a solid option for those fantasy players which use individual defensive players (IDPs).

Fantasy Tip: With how fragile Reed has proven to be over his short career so far, it only seems like a matter of time before he's injured again. He's a high-risk, high-reward pick, so tread carefully.
