Redskins | Robert Griffin passes physical

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 13:19:34 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III passed his exit physical this offseason, which paves the way for the team to release him.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin will have a chance to find a starting job in the offseason but may have to accept a backup role depending on the interest in him. Griffin has not posted great numbers over the last few seasons and is not a great option if he wins a starting job.

Redskins | Washington may pursue Matt Forte

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 12:15:19 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte could be pursued by the Washington Redskins this offseason since he can be a threat as a runner and a receiver, but his age and asking price could be sticking points for the team.

Fantasy Tip: Forte probably would have the chance to receive solid playing time if he decides to join the Redskins. Forte could be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues if he joins the team and receives a majority of the work at the position.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins awesome down the stretch

Thu, 11 Feb 2016 08:30:48 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was 195-for-275 (70.9%) for 2,429 yards, 20 touchdowns and three interceptions in nine games from Week 8 to the end of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins could be a midrange QB1 in fantasy drafts next season as there are questions about most quarterbacks after the top three or four.

Redskins | Alfred Morris probably gone

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 13:28:15 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris will be able to test free agency this offseason, according to team president Bruce Allen. If Morris is not offered a deal to his liking, then the Redskins may entertain re-signing Morris.

Fantasy Tip: Cud-chewing cows were probably more entertaining than Morris last season. Morris averaged a measly 1.45 yards after contact in 2015. His lack of production and disappointing decline could hinder teams from taking a chance on him, but he has seen success in the NFL, particularly in his rookie year. If Morris does leave, Matt Jones is the favorite to take over as the lead back, but he left something to be wanted last season, too.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins negotiating

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 09:07:47 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is engaged in discussions to re-sign with the Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins had a breakout season, and he's a low-end QB1 in fantasy that could have some upside.

Redskins | Alfred Morris not in talks with WAS

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 09:07:24 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent RB Alfred Morris isn't in active discussions to re-sign with the Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Morris isn't expected to return to Washington, but he could land in a situation to still be a productive RB2 in fantasy.

Redskins | Andre Roberts could be cap casualty

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 22:02:09 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts is signed through the 2017 season with a cap hit of $5 million for 2016. Beat writer John Keim suggests the emergence of WR Jamison Crowder as the No. 1 slot receiver could mean Roberts is expendable. He has posted 46 receptions with two touchdowns in two seasons with Washington.

Fantasy Tip: Roberts appeared to be headed for a big role when he signed with the team in 2014, but the team added DeSean Jackson to push him down the depth chart. Going elsewhere and starting over might be the best thing for his fantasy value, although it's uncertain if he will be cut or not at this point.

Redskins | Washington to keep Pierre Garcon?

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 11:26:12 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon is expected to be retained and play out the last year of his contract in Washington, according to Rich Tandler and Tarik El-Bashir of CSNWashington.com.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon is coming off a quietly productive year in which he caught 72 passes for 777 yards and six touchdowns -- all improvements from 2014. Jordan Reed and DeSean Jackson would obviously cut into his production again, but Garcon should still be viewed as a WR3 if he stays with the Redskins.

Redskins | Washington could add running back

Sun, 31 Jan 2016 11:11:14 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris may not return next season, as previously reported, which could lead the Redskins to draft a running back or sign a free-agent running back, according to CSNWashington.com's Rich Tandler. Tandler said depth is needed at the position and that RBs Chris Thompson and Silas Redd are both coming off injuries and aren't workhorse backs.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Jones would likely be the heir apparent if Morris leaves. Jones showed flashes of starting ability in his rookie season, but he may not be the answer the Redskins are looking for. There's still plenty of time for this situation to play out, though, so stay tuned.

Redskins | Matt Jones not guaranteed to start

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 20:41:11 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones won't necessarily be the workhorse back in 2016 if RB Alfred Morris leaves in free agency because the team isn't sure Jones can fix everything he needs to over one offseason in order to become a lead back.

Fantasy Tip: Jones showed some upside in his rookie year, but he also lost four fumbles and had games where he was completely ineffective. If Morris leaves, Jones had RB2 upside, but he is far from a lock to live up to his potential.
