Redskins | Samaje Perine not a threat to start yet

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 19:06:43 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine has to work on becoming more consistent in protection, and coaches say he's still thinking too much when running the ball, according to ESPN.com's John Keim, who writes "there is a gap" between Perine and Rob Kelley.

Fantasy Tip: It has been widely assumed since the draft Perine would beat out Kelley in camp, but it doesn't appear as if that is going to happen. The rookie should be able to carve out a role at some point given how good of an inside runner he is, but owners probably need to start preparing as if Kelley may be the 200-carry guy in this backfield. Kelley should be considered a midrange RB3 at this point, while Perine is in RB5 territory.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins wants to stay in Washington

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 11:41:37 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins does not want to sign with another team when he becomes a free agent next offseason. Cousins loves playing for the Redskins and hopes to remain there for the entirety of his career.

Fantasy Tip: The desire is there, but Cousins and the Redskins have had difficult contract negotiations in the past. Nonetheless, Cousins is a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in 2017, even with the losses of Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson.

Redskins | Jordan Reed had a fracture

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 07:39:00 -0700

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) disclosed that he had a fracture in his toe Sunday, Aug. 13. "It's the cleats more than anything," Reed said. "The cleats prior to this were more narrow and pressing on the bone that I had the fracture in. These cleats are wider and the orthotics are softer so I don't feel it."

Fantasy Tip: Reed is expected back before the start of the season. He's a legit TE1 in fantasy, but his propensity for injuries require a high-upside backup behind him.

Redskins | Josh Doctson still not ready

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 18:12:27 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) is still four or five days away from returning to practice, head coach Jay Gruden said Sunday, Aug. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Doctson has been battling injures since being drafted last year, but the former first-rounder should have a steady role in Washington's passing attack if he can stay on the field. Given his upside, he is worth gambling on as a WR4.

Redskins | Jordan Reed expects to return soon

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 15:55:12 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) said his new cleats and orthotics have made a difference with his sprained big toe. He is still on the Physically Unable to Perform list but expects to start practicing soon.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see when Reed will be able to return to practice. Reed is one of the better fantasy tight ends but continues to be a risky option because of his injury history. He can be a No. 1 tight end for owners this season but they should have a strong backup in case he misses time.

Redskins | Jordan Reed to be reevaluated soon

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 13:07:20 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) will be reevaluated after the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Reed has not participated in practice since the start of training camp because of his toe injury, so owners will know more about his status after the evaluation. He is one of the better fantasy tight ends when healthy but he has struggled with injuries during his career. Reed should be considered a No. 1 tight end in all leagues if he is healthy for Week 1.

Redskins | Jordan Reed to try out new footwear

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 10:55:42 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) received special orthotics for his left cleat and will test it out for the next couple days, according to head coach Jay Gruden, who added the team will take a look at how Reed is doing after the team's next preseason game against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: If Reed could ever stay healthy for a full season, he could easily make a claim to be one of the top three tight ends in the game. As it stands right now, Reed is expected to be ready for Week 1, but he is a poor bet to stay healthy all season, making him a risky pick before the end of the fifth round.
