Redskins | Kirk Cousins off the mark

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 21:02:04 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 14 of his 23 pass attempts for 144 yards and a touchdown in a 21-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers in the preseason Saturday. Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't the most efficient stat line for Cousins, but on the plus side, he was putting the ball in the air early and often. He has solid weapons around him and should be in line for another season of QB1 production.

Redskins | Samaje Perine runs well

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 20:54:10 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine had eight carries for 45 yards and one catch for 29 yards against the Green Bay Packers in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Rob Kelley struggled in the same game, which should only add steam to the Perine hype train. There is a good chance that no Washington back will emerge as an every-week fantasy starter, but Perine is worth a shot as a RB5 in case he becomes top dog in the backfield.

Redskins | No running room for Rob Kelley

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 19:33:04 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley had nine carries for nine yards and one catch for five yards against the Green Bay Packers in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Kelley doesn't exactly have a stranglehold on the starting gig, and outings like this won't help. The lack of job security makes him best suited as a RB3.

Redskins | Samaje Perine closing the gap?

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 09:18:36 -0700

Washington Redskins rookie RB Samaje Perine impressed the team with the way he bounced back from some miscues in the team's preseason opener on Thursday, Aug. 10, versus the Baltimore Ravens - both with how he responded in the game and during practice this week.

Fantasy Tip: Perine fumbled, dropped a pass and struggled in pass protection in his first NFL game, and ESPN's John Keim speculated shortly thereafter that "a gap" existed between Rob Kelley and the rookie for the starting job. That would appear to still be the case, but Perine is a powerful runner who will continue to get opportunities in what should be a pretty good offense. He's well worth a late-round pick as a high-upside RB5.

Redskins | Coach happy with Niles Paul

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 16:39:25 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul has been one of the most impressive players during training camp, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Paul has worked at all of the tight end spots and can play fullback.

Redskins | Josh Doctson may play Saturday

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 16:24:41 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) has a chance to play in the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Saturday, Aug. 19, but will work out prior to the game before the team decides on his status.

Fantasy Tip: Doctson probably would see limited snaps against the Packers if he is cleared but it looks like he is close to 100 percent. He is expected to be a top-three receiver for the Redskins this season and should have a solid role in the passing game. Doctson can be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Redskins | Jordan Reed back at practice soon?

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 13:33:58 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) said he's hoping to return to practice either Monday, Aug. 21, or Tuesday, Aug. 22. Reed added that the orthotics he's been wearing have helped his toe injury.

Fantasy Tip: Reed is one of the more frustrating players in fantasy football. He's a top-tier tight end when healthy, but he's as fragile as china too. If he's at full health entering the season, he's worthy of being drafted as a high-end TE1 with more value in PPR leagues.

Redskins | Jamison Crowder fully practicing

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 10:10:05 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (hamstring) participated fully in practice Thursday, Aug. 17. He is expected to play in Washington' preseason game Saturday, Aug. 19, according to The Washington Post's Mike Jones.

Fantasy Tip: Crowder will be an integral part of the Redskins ' passing attack in 2017. He is better suited for PPR leagues as he should see plenty of targets in the slot with the departures of Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson. In such leagues, he has WR2 upside, but it's better to take him as a WR3.

Redskins | Josh Doctson does some work

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 17:51:24 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) participated in some individual drills during practice Wednesday, Aug. 16, and said he is feeling good. Head coach Jay Gruden said Doctson has not been ruled out for the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Doctson has been dealing with the hamstring for about a week, so the team may decide to keep him out against the Packers and look to play him in the third preseason game. He received limited playing time last season because of an injury but is expected to be a starter in 2017. He could be a No. 4 receiver in some fantasy leagues if he is able to recover from his injury.

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.
