Redskins | Jordan Reed agrees to extension

Thu, 05 May 2016 06:40:40 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed is signing a five-year, $50 million extension Thursday, May 5, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Reed broke out with an 87-952-11 season last year and really took off with Kirk Cousins under center. He's an upper-middle TE1 in 2016.

Redskins | Josh Doctson compared to Pro Bowler

Wed, 04 May 2016 23:14:18 -0700

Washington Redskins rookie WR Josh Doctson has been compared to Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green, a perennial Pro Bowler, by offensive coordinator Sean McVay and head coach Jay Gruden. "When you've got a guy like that with great body control, elite ball skills, (and) a guy that has a 41-inch vert that plays like that, you see it on tape," McVay said Wednesday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Doctson won't have the same type of fantasy appeal as Green, at least initially. Target him as more of a WR4 or flex option in seasonal leagues and DFS play, as DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon, Jordan Reed and Matt Jones all need to be fed, too.

Redskins | Matt Jones to have large role

Wed, 04 May 2016 23:13:47 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones can handle the load, and the team wants him to be the lead back and they're confident he'll jump into the starting role and be just fine. He posted 339 total offensive snaps in 2015, piling up 490 rushing yards and three touchdowns while adding 19 receptions for 304 yards and a score. Offensive coordinator Sean McVay believes Jones can be an every-down back.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has RB2 potential heading into the new season, and he'll be a popular selection in the neighborhood of Rounds 5 through 7. Just make sure to have a tried and true option at running back ahead of him just in case Jones doesn't live up to the hype.

Redskins | Josh Doctson will play outside

Wed, 04 May 2016 16:58:03 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson will start out as an outside receiver, playing behind WRs DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, according to offensive coordinator Sean McVay. McVay and head coach Jay Gruden see similarities between Doctson and Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green. "I think that's a great comparison, because you look at a taller, leaner player with great body control and excellent ball skills," McVay said.

Fantasy Tip: It may take some time for Doctons to acclimate to the professional level, but he definitely has a role to play with the Redskins. He could be more of a downfield threat, like a poor man's DeSean Jackson. For now, consider Doctson a WR4 in fantasy land.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins fine with contract status

Mon, 02 May 2016 10:41:40 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said he is comfortable with playing under the one-year franchise tag if the team wants to see him play in more games before they give him a long-term deal. Cousins also said he would be fine if the team wanted to give him a long-term deal before next season. "I think that people make great decisions when they have a lot of information at their disposal, and if the Redskins would like more information from this next season to be able to make a decision on me long-term, I totally understand that and understand where they're coming from," Cousins said. "If they feel like they have enough information and want to make that call right now, then great, too. But I think the ball's in their court and I will react accordingly to whatever decision they make. But I am totally comfortable playing more football, and frankly, if I don't play well next season, I don't deserve to be back. I don't deserve to have a long-term deal. I want to go out and earn it, and prove myself, and if I need to prove myself again, that's fine. I'll go see if I can do that."

Fantasy Tip: Cousins will be with the Redskins for at least one more season and will have plenty of weapons to work with in the passing game. He is coming off a solid 2015 season and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues next season.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins optimistic for deal

Mon, 02 May 2016 08:07:54 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is optimistic about signing a long-term deal before the season starts. "I think there's a chance," Cousins said. "The ball's in the court of the Redskins."

Fantasy Tip: Cousins emerged in a big way last season, but was it a fluke? That's the question most owners will have to debate when selecting him as a low-end QB1 this season.
