• Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 6/30/18 3:47pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed's (toes) contract may not be renewed next season if he can't stay on the field in 2018. The Redskins would save more than $6.1 million in salary cap space by letting Reed go. On the bright side, head coach Jay Gruden said he is on track to be ready for training camp.

    Huddle Up: Reed's injury history is well documented as he has missed 28 games over his five-year career. He still deserves TE1 consideration since he is one of the most talented tight ends in the game, but Vernon Davis represents a valuable late-round pick up.

  • Rob Kelley - RB
    Posted 6/27/18 5:07pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley has been the first running back to go through individual drills with running backs coach Randy Jordan during the first two weeks of organized team activities. He's also taken a majority of the reps at running back with the first-team offense.

    Huddle Up: Kelley appeared to be on the verge of breaking out following a solid rookie campaign in 2016 before injuries limited him to seven games a year ago. With a logjam in the Washington backfield, it's best to wait and see how the workload will be split up during training camp.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR
    Posted 6/24/18 11:32am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder is healthy after a season in which he dealt with hamstring issues and is focusing on doing more of the dynamic lifts in college in order to avoid them this season. He has also 'clearly clicked' with Alex Smith this offseason, according to ESPN.com's John Keim. 'Super talented. Such great feel. Such great instincts. Such great vision,' Smith said about Crowder.

    Huddle Up: Smith's 102.8 quarterback rating when targeting slot receivers over the last five seasons trails only Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson among quarterbacks who have made at least 30 starts. It obviously bodes well for Crowder, who is entering a contract year and poised for his best season yet after averaging 64 catches over his first three seasons. He is shaping up to be a solid value pick given his current eighth-round ADP in PPR formats.

  • Derrius Guice - RB
    Posted 6/7/18 7:22pm ET

    Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said it has been 'exciting' to watch RB Derrius Guice catch the ball during OTAs.

    Huddle Up: Guice is already slated to handle the carries on early downs, and if he can add the occasional reception, it will only bolster his fantasy value. He looks like a solid RB2 at this point.

  • Alex Smith - QB
    Posted 6/6/18 12:46pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith and WR Jamison Crowder already appear to have good chemistry. According to NBCSportsWashington's Rich Tandler, Smith looked comfortable looking Crowder's way during goal-line plays at organized team activities Wednesday, June 6.

    Huddle Up: It will do Crowder well to have new eyes looking his way, not that Kirk Cousins didn't look his way. Crowder was a breakout candidate last offseason but expectations were not met. He's a breakout candidate once again and a legitimate low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 in PPR formats.

  • Chris Thompson - RB
    Posted 6/6/18 5:43pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) has made 'unbelievable progress,' according to head coach Jay Gruden. He's 'fully expected' for training camp.

    Huddle Up: Thompson suffered a pretty serious season-ending injury last November when he fractured his fibula, but miraculously, it looks like he'll not only be 100 percent going into the season, but he figures to be on a normal practice schedule as well through the summer. Despite being in a crowded backfield, Thompson will have a regular defined role that puts him in the RB2/FLEX conversation.

  • Josh Doctson - WR
    Posted 6/1/18 7:41pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson said his confidence continues to grow and he feels as comfortable as he did when he was playing in college.

    Huddle Up: It's been a slow start to his career, but Doctson started to flash his big-play potential last year. He should have a steady role in the offense this year and could deliver WR3 production.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 5/30/18 9:24am ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toes) is doing agility drills on the side Wednesday, May 30, and looks fine, according to beat writer John Keim.

    Huddle Up: If you're drafting Reed, at this point, you know he's feast or famine. He can be a very good TE1, or he could miss half the season due to injury.

  • Chris Thompson - RB
    Posted 5/17/18 7:44pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice will likely be the starter according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com, but Rosenthal said it 'wouldn't be a surprise' if RB Chris Thompson ended up playing more snaps this year.

    Huddle Up: Prior to his injury last year, Thompson had emerged as a dynamic weapon in the passing game. Expect the same role for Thompson in 2018, and he should be an excellent flex option in PPR formats.

  • Derrius Guice - RB
    Posted 5/10/18 9:59am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice has the fortune, as a rookie, of already knowing when he'll be on the field. Head coach Jay Gruden has made it clear that Guice will be in on first and second downs with RB Chris Thompson maintaining his passing-down role. Gruden added that Guice needs to improve his pass protection, but he also gave Guice credit for being a good pass- catcher.

    Huddle Up: Guice and Thompson have the ability to form quite the dynamic duo in the nation's capital. Guice's role is more suited for standard leagues since Thompson will be in on the majority of passing situations. In either format, Guice is an RB2 candidate as Washington's primary ball-carrier.

  • Derrius Guice - RB
    Posted 5/10/18 1:54pm ET

    Washington Redskins second-round draft choice RB Derrius Guice signed a four-year deal with the Redskins Thursday, May 10. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Guice has a good chance to be the starting running back for the Redskins during his rookie season. Owners should monitor his situation during training camp to see what his role will be for 2018. Guice can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues if he receives most of the carries.

  • Derrius Guice - RB
    Posted 5/8/18 5:19pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson will continue to be the top option out of the backfield on passing downs despite the arrival of second-round RB Derrius Guice, according to ESPN's John Keim, who believes Jordan Reed's health will affect the degree to which Thompson needs to be leaned on in 2018.

    Huddle Up: In six games with Reed last season, Thompson was targeted 21 times and caught 18 passes with two touchdowns. In four games Thompson played without Reed, the former was targeted 31 times with 21 receptions and two touchdowns. Considering Reed's durability issues, Thompson figures to be busy at some point again this season. And as long as Thompson stays healthy, Guice's role in the passing game figures to be limited. Consider Guice a low-end RB2 at best and Thompson a high-end RB3/flex.

  • Derrius Guice - RB
    Posted 4/30/18 6:10am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice is expected to start for the team.

    Huddle Up: Guice will lose time on third downs and passing situations to Chris Thompson, but he'll be a high-end RB3 to target.

  • Derrius Guice - RB
    Posted 4/29/18 7:59pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice said he can't control all 'the rumors and stuff' that surrounded him leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft but will use the situation as motivation. 'Now I'm going to run angrier than ever,' Guice said. 'It's going to be tough for a lot of teams to bring me down.'

    Huddle Up: Guice will have a great opportunity to win the starting role in Washington. He'll be a RB3 with upside in redraft leagues and one of the top prospects in rookie drafts.

  • Trey Quinn - WR
    Posted 4/28/18 3:52pm ET

    The Washington Redskins selected Southern Methodist WR Trey Quinn with the 256th overall pick (Round 7), the final pick of the 2018 NFL Draft.

    Huddle Up: Quinn will fight for a spot on the team's roster in training camp and the preseason. There are no guarantee he'll make the roster, but he does have the distinction of being Mr. Irrelevant for 2018.

  • Derrius Guice - RB
    Posted 4/27/18 5:57pm ET

    The Washington Redskins selected Louisiana State RB Derrius Guice with the 59th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Friday, April 27.

    Huddle Up: Guice has a chance to compete for the starting running back job during training camp, so owners should monitor the situation. He can be at least a No. 3 fantasy running back in 2018 if he is a starter.

  • Derrius Guice - RB
    Posted 4/27/18 8:50pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice can do it all from the running back position, according to head coach Jay Gruden, and Gruden said he 'felt good' about selecting Guice after speaking to him and his agent.

    Huddle Up: Guice has a golden opportunity to grab the starting role in a Washington backfield desperate for a lead back. At the very least, he should be a flex play, and Guice should be one of the first players off the board in rookie drafts.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR
    Posted 4/8/18 6:41pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder has been working with Duke football strength and conditioning coach Noel Durfey this offseason to increase his explosiveness. 'That's why I've been here working, grinding with coach Durfey and the sprint staff,' Crowder said. 'I've been working running routes, getting back into the groove of things before we start OTAs.'

    Huddle Up: Crowder ran hot and cold last year as he battled some injuries, ripping off four excellent games after a slow start before stumbling again to the finish. If he can avoid the injury bug, he has a chance to be a WR3 in PPR formats.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 4/3/18 7:15am ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toes) had a procedure done on his toes, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Reed had a fractured toe last season, which caused him to compensate for it and suffer other injuries. Gruden is hopeful Reed will be 100 percent by training camp.

    Huddle Up: Alex Smith likes throwing to tight ends, and you can't ignore Reed's talent. However, he is always hurt and always a question mark in fantasy. Will 2018 provide more boom than bust? It's something to weigh as a low-end TE1.

  • Josh Doctson - WR
    Posted 4/1/18 6:54pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson will have 'more opportunities to make plays on 50-50 type balls' this coming season, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'He's a guy that builds up his speed, and he can adjust to the ball like no other,' Gruden said. 'His 42-inch vertical is documented, so that's where he gets his separation, by leaping and adjusting to the ball.'

    Huddle Up: Doctson rebounded from an injury-plagued rookie campaign to catch six touchdowns in 2017. He should have a prominent role in the offense in 2018, and he will have upside as a WR3.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 3/27/18 9:25am ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) is not expected to participate in OTAs this spring, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Reed played in only six games last season and eventually landed on the Reserve/Injured list as a result, ending the latest of his five injury-plagued seasons. Since he has missed 28 of a possible 80 games over his five-year NFL career and has yet to play an entire season, it's time owners start treating him as a TE2 with TE1 upside - one that should be lumped in with a player such as Tyler Eifert in the later rounds.

  • Chris Thompson - RB
    Posted 3/26/18 10:14pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) said on his Twitter account that he was able to 'run on the field' Monday, March 26, his first time doing so since he had surgery to repair a broken right fibula in December.

    Huddle Up: Thompson was on pace to set career-high marks in all major categories last year before suffering the unfortunate injury that ended his season. At the very least, he did prove himself to be a useful piece for Washington's running game, and since the club hasn't added any tailbacks, he should be able to resume his role once he's healthy again. Thompson totaled six touchdowns in 10 games and figures to at least carry use as a FLEX option.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR
    Posted 3/22/18 5:46pm ET

    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Redskins) is close to an agreement with the New York Jets, according to sources. The two sides are expected to finalize the deal Thursday, March 22.

    Huddle Up: Pryor probably will be one of the Jets' starting receivers if the deal is finalized. He has played well in the past and should be able to post solid numbers in 2018. Owners in most leagues can consider Pryor a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR
    Posted 3/22/18 10:02pm ET

    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Redskins) has agreed to a deal with the New York Jets Thursday, March 22. Terms have not yet been disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Pryor is coming off a down year following his impressive 1,000-yard campaign in 2016, as he was limited to just nine games due to injury in what turned out to be his only season with the Redskins. He'll have sleeper potential as a member of the Jets, especially if Robby Anderson ends up getting suspended, in which case Pryor could serve as the club's No. 1 wide-out.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR
    Posted 3/21/18 3:13pm ET

    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Redskins) appears to be deciding between the Seattle Seahawks and New York Jets at this point, in the opinion of Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.

    Huddle Up: Pryor likely would have a solid role no matter if he signs with the Seahawks or the Jets. He may have more fantasy value if he signed with the Seahawks because of the quarterback situation but could be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR
    Posted 3/19/18 7:44am ET

    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Redskins) will visit the New York Jets, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Pryor could still have some PPR luster as a WR4 or WR5, depending on the situation.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR
    Posted 3/17/18 10:17am ET

    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Redskins) is scheduled to meet with the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, March 18, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The Seahawks will need to replace Paul Richardson, so Pryor is one of the options that they are looking at in free agency. He is coming off a disappointing 2017 season but is a solid receiver and can be a No. 3 or 4 fantasy receiver depending on his role.

  • Alex Smith - QB
    Posted 3/14/18 2:39pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith was officially traded to the Washington Redskins Wednesday, March 14, in exchange for CB Kendall Fuller and a 2018 third-round draft choice.

    Huddle Up: Patrick Mahomes will take over as the starting quarterback for the Chiefs and has a chance to have success because of the pass catchers on the roster. Owners in most leagues should consider him a No. 2 quarterback, but he can be a No. 1 quarterback in keeper leagues.

  • Alex Smith - QB
    Posted 3/14/18 2:33pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith was officially acquired by the Washington Redskins Wednesday, March 14, in exchange for CB Kendall Fuller and a 2018 third-round draft choice.

    Huddle Up: Smith has posted solid numbers over the last several seasons and will have a nice group of pass catchers to work with in Washington. He probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback against favorable matchups.
