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.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson and Doctson currently have the most fantasy appeal in Washington, but don't completely disregard Garcon, either. Crowder is a sneaky sleeper candidate after tallying 59 catches for 604 yards and two touchdowns in his rookie season, but don't view him as more than a WR5 at best in the Redskins' packed wide receiver corps.

Washington Redskins CB Kyshoen Jarrett (shoulder, neck) may not be able to play in 2016, and his career may be in jeopardy, too. Jarrett is waiting for the results of his most recent specialist visit regarding nerve damage in his shoulder and neck, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Roberts never took off after showing signs in Arizona, and the move shouldn't come as a surprise. He could still catch on with a team and be worthy of a WR5 flyer in the right situation.

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson said he is working on learning the new routes he will have to run in the NFL. "A lot of the routes are deeper," Doctson said. "A lot of deep in-breaking routes. I probably didn't run one double move in college and we have a whole arsenal of double moves here. It's a little different in and out of breaks, getting your hips around. Things like that."
Fantasy Tip: It likely will take some time for Doctson to learn the new offense but should have a solid role in the passing game. He probably would be a decent option in the late rounds of deeper leagues and likely will be more valuable in keeper leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins will play for the Redskins for at least one more year and is not worried about his contract status. Cousins played well as the starter in 2015 and will have plenty of weapons to work with on offense. Cousins should be seen as a low-end No. 1 or a terrific No. 2 quarterback in most leagues.

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones is expected to stay healthy and secure the football this season, and general manager Scot McCloughan has no concerns that he can do both. McCloughan said Jones has looked great this offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Jones will be the primary ball-carrier for the Redskins this year in his second season in the NFL. Jones showed promise in 2015, but his 3.4 yards per carry and five fumbles left something to be desired. If he can fix his fumble-itis and stay on the field then Jones has RB2 potential.

Washington Redskins CB Kendall Fuller (knee) said he expects to be a full participant when training camp begins. Fuller has not been cleared for on-field work at this point but is working with trainers on the side.
