Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon could be featured more often in the passing game this season based on the offseason workouts. Garcon often lined up to the right of the quarterback during the workouts even though he has been used mostly on the left side. Head coach Jay Gruden said he was impressed with Garcon's work this offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Garcon saw a significant drop in his receiving yards last season from 1,346 in 2013 to 752 in 2014. Garcon could be more involved in the passing game if the team has stability at the quarterback position. Garcon could be an option in the middle to late rounds of most fantasy drafts this season.

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy and QB Kirk Cousins have created no separation from each other in their battle to be the primary backup quarterback in 2015, and head coach Jay Gruden said their performance in the preseason games could be the deciding factor.
Fantasy Tip: With Robert Griffin III slated to start, McCoy and Cousins will need an injury or extremely poor play on the part of RGIII to have any fantasy value in 2015.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III said he's feeling better than he's felt in a while. "I just think we're all feeling better about what we're doing," Griffin said. "We know a lot more than last year. And for me as a player, you always have to be confident. Sometimes you have to throw a little swag on it."
Fantasy Tip: Griffin has had a positive offseason, and head coach Jay Gruden has even taken notice with his development. The big question for Griffin is can he stay healthy? He's coming off a season in which he suffered a dislocated ankle. In Griffin's three-year career so far, he hasn't played in all 16 games even once. The talent is there, and he has more value because of his ability to run the football, but he's too risky to be taken as a starting fantasy quarterback.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III has been impressing head coach Jay Gruden this offseason. "The more he plays, the more success he has, the more confidence he's going to build up as a player and the more confident this whole offense is going to be with him under center," Gruden said of Griffin. "That comes with time. I don't think anybody lacks confidence with him at quarterback. I think the transition for him into a new season last season was a little bit rocky for all of us. When you have the same system going in for Year 2, I think he's going to get better," said Gruden.
Fantasy Tip: RG3 will likely slide to the bottom of 2015 fantasy drafts, but if he can stay healthy there is tremendous upside to be had. Owners who miss out on a top-10 quarterback should take Griffin as their No. 2, as he still has the potential to be an elite fantasy asset.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon will still be second fiddle among the Redskins' wide receivers to DeSean Jackson, but he potentially being more involved is encouraging. He still shouldn't be regarded as more than a WR4.

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder is under investigation by the Redskins and the NFL for alleged domestic violence. The allegations were posted to Crowder's social media accounts that were supposedly hacked.

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon ran routes as the "Z" receiver instead of the "X" receiver Wednesday, June 3. This means Garcon lines up split out on the right instead of the left. WR DeSean Jackson was the "X" receiver, and WRs Andre Roberts and Jamison Crowder rotated as the slot receiver.
Fantasy Tip: D-Jax is a midrange WR2 in fantasy, but he loses some appeal in PPR leagues. He came back to his normal 56-catch range after busting out with 82 receptions in 2013. Garcon should be more involved this season, but it's hard to take him as anything more than a low-end WR3 in PPR formats.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's fifth-year option being picked up was the obvious decision, according to team president Bruce Allen. "We know his talent. It really was a no-brainer," Allen said. "I think if you asked us six months before it would have been the same decision."
Fantasy Tip: It's interesting that it took Washington how long it did to pick up Griffin's option considering Allen's words. Nevertheless, Griffin is slated to start the 2015 season and will look to play a full season for the first time in his career. Draft him as a QB2.
