Fantasy Tip: Paul missed the entire 2015 season because an ankle and likely will be the primary backup to Jordan Reed. Paul probably will receive limited targets in 2016 and can be avoided in all leagues unless Reed suffers an injury.

Fantasy Tip: Washington can take things slow with Doctson since they are not doing much during practice at this point. He should be ready for training camp and is expected to have a solid role in the passing game. Doctson should be considered as a late-round option in most leagues and can be used as a flex option.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson may have to compete for a roster spot during training camp but probably will be used as a third-down back if he makes the team. Thompson could have some value in point-per-receptions but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul appears to have bulked up this offseason as the Redskins started organized team activities this week. Paul gained at least 20 pounds last offseason but lost all of that weight while sitting out due to his ankle injury.
Fantasy Tip: Paul was a force to be reckoned with while Jordan Reed was injured. Reed quickly took over stardom, though, and never looked back. Paul will continue to play second fiddle as long as Reed is healthy, so his fantasy value is minimal.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson has not participated in voluntary workouts this week, but he has visited the Redskins. Head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson knows what kind of shape he has to be in and does expect him to participate in other voluntary workouts.
Fantasy Tip: Jackson only played in nine games last season, so health will be key for him this offseason and throughout 2016. He's Washington's best deep threat and is still worth consideration as a low-end WR2 in standard leagues.

Free-agent RB Pierre Thomas (Redskins) is still receiving interest from the Washington Redskins, but Thomas may want to wait until the season begins before signing with a team like he did last season.
Fantasy Tip: Thomas recorded 52 rushing yards and 84 receiving yards in limited playing time with the Redskins in 2016. He could re-sign with the Redskins but likely would not have much fantasy value in most leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Foster should be able to find a job in the near future, but it appears that Washington will look for other options if they want add another running back. Foster probably will be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back for fantasy owners depending on where he plays.

Washington Redskins CB Kendall Fuller (knee) estimated that he is 90-95% strength and will be ready for training camp July 28. Fuller had microfracture surgery last fall to repair cartilage in his right knee. The Redskins say they're optimistic about Fuller's recovery because it was a tiny area being repaired, which meant he needed fewer incisions.
