Washington Redskins LB Preston Smith is bigger, stronger and faster than he was last year, according to head coach Jay Gruden. "I think he's going to be a heck of a pass rusher for us here for a long time," Gruden said. "But out here it's going to be real important for him to get even better."

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') will be shut down until he is "100% healthy," according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden noted the team was not satisfied with how Doctson's Achilles' was progressing.
Fantasy Tip: Doctson has nice upside and could emerge as a major weapon in the Washington offense in the second half of the season. Unfortunately, he'll have to work his way back to full health before he can begin to climb the depth chart. Still, in the endgame of drafts, he's a nice grab and stash receiver.

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (toe) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Thursday, July 28, with a sprained toe. It's expected to be a short stay on the list, according to sources, as the move was mostly procedural.
Fantasy Tip: He's not expected to start, but he has plenty of upside if you want to take a chance on him as a WR5.

Fantasy Tip: Crowder could make for a sneaky PPR option this year after going for 59 catches and 604 yards in his rookie season. The Redskins do have a few mouths to feed, but Crowder may be one of Kirk Cousins' safety blankets coming out of the slot.

Fantasy Tip: The starting job is Jones' to lose after showing promise in his rookie year last season. The yards per carry left something to be desired, but Jones is still an RB2 consideration. Marshall should not be ignored, though. He could win the Redskins' backup running back job and is worth a look in later rounds, although he'll likely be more suited for leagues with standard scoring.

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson will back up WRs DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon on the outside in his rookie season, according to ESPN.com's John Keim. Keim also said Doctson is not expected to see much work in three-wide-receiver sets.
Fantasy Tip: Jamison Crowder figures to be the primary slot receiver, so Doctson may not receive as much playing time as he'd like in his first professional season. He still has solid upside, though, and should be considered in late rounds, particularly in standard leagues.

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will receive $19.95 million for one year under the tag this year. The team was unwilling to give him a long-term deal, as general manager Scot McCloughan believes he can find a comparable quarterback who will be much cheaper than Cousins at some point in the next year or two.
Fantasy Tip: Cousins is playing for a big contract, as he'll get mega money if he has another strong season in 2016. That extra incentive, along with a healthy receiving corps and top-notch tight end might help him stay on his upward ascension. Heading into 2016 he should be considered as a Top 15 option at his position.
