Redskins | Robert Griffin III needs to be ordinary

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 15:25:12 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III told SI.com's Peter King Friday, July 31, the team is asking him to be more basic in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: RG3 went on to say when the opportunity to make a big play presents itself, he's still going to take it and not think twice about it. Griffin had six interceptions and nine fumbles last season to go with just six passing and one rushing touchdown. While his performance over the last two seasons has drastically decreased his fantasy value, RG3 will have plenty of upside as a late-round backup quarterback in standard leagues.

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 15:18:43 -0700

Redskins | DeSean Jackson confident in abilities

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 09:56:38 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson is confident in his abilities and doesn't think there is a cornerback in the league that can shut him down. "I don't think no one can guard me," Jackson said. "It's how I feel about myself. I don't feel no one can stop me. You can get Darrelle Revis, Richard Sherman -- whoever you want to get." Jackson led the league last year with 13 catches for 40 yards or more, which was five catches more than any other receiver. He also averaged an NFL-best 20.88 yards per catch, which was almost three yards more than the next receiver. Jackson has averaged an NFL-best 17.68 yards per catch since entering the league in 2008, and he has 48 catches of 40 yards or more in his career, 11 more than any other receiver. Washington quarterbacks were encouraged to throw deep to Jackson more often last year, and the team wants to focus more heavily on the run this year and use more play-action setups, which could benefit Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Beware putting too much stock in Jackson and these numbers. For fantasy owners, he's ideal in standard formats. He caught just 56 passes a year ago but managed to save face with over 1,000 receiving yards because of his deep-ball prowess. D-Jax is a WR2 commodity but can frustrate owners often.

Redskins | Matt Jones day-to-day

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 11:52:08 -0700

Washington Redskins rookie RB Matt Jones (knee) is considered day-to-day with a sore knee.

Fantasy Tip: Jones should be able to recover just fine from his sore knee. He's expected to back up Alfred Morris this season, and should give the Redskins an added receiving threat out of the backfield. He could be a sleeper in PPR leagues.

Redskins | Matt Jones tweaks knee

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 20:59:22 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (knee) had to sit out the final portion of training camp Sunday, Aug. 2, after tweaking his knee.

Fantasy Tip: The injury doesn't sound serious, but Jones' powerful running style will likely lead to occasional bumps and bruises. He should see a handful of touches and some work in the passing game as Alfred Morris' backup this year, and he is worth grabbing in the later rounds, especially if you own Morris.

Redskins | Jordan Reed trying to shed label

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 05:10:22 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed is ready to shed the narrative that he is injury prone. Reed has missed a total of 12 games over his first two seasons in the NFL. "Right now I'm staying positive and I feel like the injuries are in my past and I'm moving on," Reed said. "I just need to focus on maintenance of my body. I won't let nagging injuries catch up to me. I've made some changes, and I'll be ready," said Reed.

Fantasy Tip: Reed has averaged 10.1 yards per reception on 95 career catches. His upside is undeniable, but his injury concerns will drop his fantasy value considerably. Owners willing to take a flier late in drafts have plenty to gain from Reed.

Redskins | Jamison Crowder making plays

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 19:25:19 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder has stood out in training camp, and he was on the receiving end of a 50-yard pass from QB Kirk Cousins Friday, July 31. "He has done a great job," head coach Gruden said. "He's very smart. He went to Duke and understands the passing game, understands route concepts. He has got good, strong hands, [is] very quick in and out of breaks. But he does have a role as a punt returner, for sure."

Redskins | Robert Griffin perfect Friday

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 17:06:37 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III did not throw an incompletion during team drills Friday, July 31. Griffin appears to be going through his progressions and throwing to secondary targets during some the snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has struggled the last few seasons and is looking to improve his play this season. Owners should consider Griffin as a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues this season and only used against favorable matchups.
