The Washington Redskins have restructured the contract of CB DeAngelo Hall, according to a source familiar with terms of the deal. Under his contract's previous terms, 25 percent of Hall's $4 million base salary for the 2015 season would have become guaranteed on Feb. 15. However, the restructure was agreed to several days in advance and now his entire base salary is non-guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins probably will look for a wide receiver at some point during the draft, and Cooper could be an option if the Redskins decide to take one in the first round. Cooper probably would be a later-round pick in drafts next season if he is selected by the Redskins.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will enter the 2015 season as the team's starting quarterback, and general manager Bruce Allen thinks Griffin's ceiling in the NFL remains high. Griffin missed five games last year with a dislocated ankle, and Allen said Griffin must stay healthy in order to realize his potential. "There's never been a question about him watching film," Allen said. "He is motivated. He's a (25-year-old) man who is still growing and learning the NFL game. We've seen him, a couple years ago, play at the highest of highs. Maybe it spoiled us a little bit to expect that all the time."
Fantasy Tip: Aside from his tantalizing rookie campaign, Griffin has been a huge disappointment, and injuries have surely played their part. Heading into 2015, as Allen notes, being injury-free is the most important. Most fantasy drafters have forgotten about Griffin's rookie season at this point and are more focused on his injury risks. That'll make him a discount on draft day. Select him as a QB2 risk-reward with plenty of upside left.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon disappeared for large stretches last year and was a thorough disappointment for those that drafted him. He had only 68 catches for 752 yards and three touchdowns, and Robert Griffin's injuries and poor play had a big hand in Garcon's struggles. With RG3 returning as the starter in 2015, hopefully Garcon will rebound, but he's no sure thing. Consider him more of a WR3 with a chance for more on draft day.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should probably not count on Griffin as their starting quarterback heading into next season, but he probably should be considered as a No. 2 quarterback option on draft day. He also could have good value in FantasyScore depending on the price and matchup.

Washington Redskins OG Shawn Lauvao is expected to be the starting left guard next season. Lauvao is more comfortable with a power-blocking scheme and is believed the team may be changing to that blocking scheme.

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins should have the opportunity to battle Redskins QB Robert Griffin III for the team's starting quarterback position, in the opinion of The Washington Post's Mike Jones. Jones noted Cousins displayed better feel in the pocket than Griffin but also acknowledged that Cousins was unable to avoid turnovers.
Fantasy Tip: Redskins head coach Jay Gruden was able to coax positive fantasy contributions out of all of the team's quarterbacks at one point or another during the 2014 season. If Cousins is able to unseat Griffin as the team's starter, he would have QB2 value.
