• Paul Richardson - WR
    Posted 9/19/18 1:40pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) was unable to practice Wednesday, Sept. 19. He had an MRI on the shoulder and it didn't reveal anything serious.

    Huddle Up: Richardson's status for Week 3 against the Packers is uncertain. Check back later in the week when the official injury designation is revealed on Friday. When healthy he is a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Rob Kelley - RB
    Posted 9/17/18 7:45pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine is expected to be the third active running back on game day while RB Rob Kelley (toe) is sidelined.

    Huddle Up: Kelley is nursing a toe injury and might be sidelined at least a month, so Perine will get a chance to show what he can do. However, he still has Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson ahead of him, so Perine's roll will be rather limited. Perine is still not worth using in most fantasy leagues unless Peterson or Thompson go down, too.

  • Paul Richardson - WR
    Posted 9/16/18 5:43am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) is considered a game-time decision for Week 2's game versus the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was listed as questionable on the injury report but it is concerning that he went from being a full practice participant Thursday, Sept. 13, to not practicing at all Friday, Sept. 14. It would be best to avoid using him in fantasy lineups this week and seek healthier options.

  • Paul Richardson - WR
    Posted 9/16/18 9:06am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was quiet in the first game but should still see a decent amount of targets in Week 2. He will have a favorable matchup this week and can be a flex option in some leagues.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR
    Posted 9/16/18 1:50pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder had just two receptions for eight yards on four targets in Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts, and he had two runs for a team-high 29 rushing yards.

    Huddle Up: It won't be often Crowder leads the team in rushing, and that's not what his fantasy owners want to see. He was expected to see a bump in targets with Alex Smith under center, but that hasn't come into fruition yet. Crowder is a risky fantasy play, even in PPR formats, until he jells better with his new QB. The Redskins host the Packers in Week 3.

  • Alex Smith - QB
    Posted 9/16/18 1:46pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith completed 33-of-46 passes for 292 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 2 loss against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Smith was sacked three times and he fumbled once, although the team was able to get that one back. The Colts pressured him, and the only reason he had a decent yardage total was because of short to intermediate low-risk pass routes late in the game trying to get his team back into it. He remains nothing more than a QB2 heading into Week 3 against the Packers.

  • Josh Doctson - WR
    Posted 9/16/18 2:04pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson recorded four receptions for 37 yards on seven targets in the Week 2 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Doctson was third on the team in targets, and he seems to be getting on the same page with new QB Alex Smith. More importantly, he has made it through two games without any nicks, as injuries have held him back in the past. If he can stay healthy he has the chance to be a decent WR4 with a little upside in most fantasy leagues. The Redskins host the Packers in Week 3.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 9/16/18 2:02pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed posted six receptions for 55 yards on eight targets in Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't all great for Reed, as he lost a fumble. The eight targets were nice, however, as he has developed a nice rapport with Alex Smith during the early going. As long as he can stay healthy, which has been the biggest obstacle during his career, he can be a decent low-end TE1 in most fantasy leagues. The Redskins host the Packers in Week 3.

  • Paul Richardson - WR
    Posted 9/16/18 1:59pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) racked up four catches for 63 yards on six receptions in the Week 2 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was battling a shoulder injury this week, but he didn't seem to show any ill effects of the injury wit ha solid stat line. He is a decent WR4 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more leagues heading into Week 3 against Green Bay.

  • Chris Thompson - RB
    Posted 9/16/18 1:57pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson hauled in 13 receptions for 92 yards on 14 targets in the Week 2 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Thompson was extremely busy on the short routes, as the Redskins passed frequently in the second half trying to get back into the game. He has 19 receptions already through the first two outings, making him a strong RB2 in all PPR formats heading into Week 3 against the Packers.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 9/16/18 1:53pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson rushed 11 times for just 20 yards in Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts and he added three receptions for 30 yards on his three targets.

    Huddle Up: Peterson took a step back after his nice opening game win in Arizona, managing just 1.8 yards per carry in this one. He remains a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 3 against the Packers, but he might need to be downgraded if he posts another stinker like this.

  • Paul Richardson - WR
    Posted 9/14/18 2:58pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 14, and is listed as questionable for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: It is not a good sign that Richardson went from full participation to no participation, so he could be a game-time decision this week. Owners may want to look for healthier options to use in their lineup and keep Richardson on the bench.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 9/9/18 8:59pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson rushed 26 times for 96 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 70 yards in a 24-6 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Washington didn't waste any time turning the backfield over to Peterson. If this was a sign of things to come, Peterson will have no problem finishing as a RB2 this season.

  • Chris Thompson - RB
    Posted 9/9/18 9:12pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed five times for 65 yards and caught six passes for 63 yards and a touchdown in a 24-6 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Thompson won't be able to remain this efficient with his touches all year, but he should a weekly flex option in PPR formats.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 9/9/18 9:09pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed caught four passes on five targets for 48 yards and a touchdown in a 24-6 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't a surprise to see a solid line from Reed, but it will be a shock if he can stay healthy all year. Enjoy the TE1 production for as long as you can.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 9/8/18 7:37pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed is expected to 'play quite a bit' against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Reed is currently healthy, which means he needs to be treated as a top-five fantasy tight end. Enjoy it while it lasts and have a quality backup in place for when his next injury occurs.

  • Chris Thompson - RB
    Posted 9/5/18 12:05pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) is not listed on the team's injury report heading into the regular season opener.

    Huddle Up: Thompson was recovering from a leg injury during training camp and the preseason, taking it slow to avoid any setbacks. He is set to work as the third-down back in Washington's offense, sitting behind Adrian Peterson and Rob Kelley on the overall depth chart. Thompson is a decent RB4 in PPR formats, but he can be mostly avoided in standard play.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 9/5/18 12:01pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed is practicing and not on the team's injury report heading into Week 1.

    Huddle Up: The oft-injured tight end can be a fantasy stud, but he has been unable to stay on the field for long stretches during his career. Washington took it easy with Reed during training camp and the preseason, easing him into action, in hopes it would preserve him for the regular season. So far, so good. He is a bona fida TE1 in most fantasy formats when healthy.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 9/5/18 5:57pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson will be the starting running back against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Peterson probably will receive a good amount of touches during the game but likely will share playing time with Chris Thompson. Owners in standard leagues can consider Peterson a No. 2 running back or a flex option.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 8/27/18 1:51pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toes) is on pace to be ready for Week 1, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Reed is the epitome of a boom or bust player. He'll win fantasy leagues if he stays healthy for the whole season, or most of it, but he's missed 14 games over the last two years. If you do draft Reed, taking Vernon Davis later on is advisable.

  • Chris Thompson - RB
    Posted 8/27/18 1:58pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) has looked 'really good,' according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Thompson is the most valuable fantasy running back on the Redskins' roster with Derrius Guice out for the year. He'll reprise his pass-catching role even though he won't be at full strength heading into Week 1. Still, view him as an RB2 in PPR formats.

  • Samaje Perine - RB
    Posted 8/26/18 4:01pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (ankle) participated in practice Sunday, Aug. 26.

    Huddle Up: Perine was competing for the starting running back job before the injury but could now be a question mark for the roster with Adrian Peterson, Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson in front of him. He probably should be avoided in all leagues since he likely would see limited touches if he stays with the Redskins.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 8/24/18 6:09pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson rushed 11 times for 56 yards against the Denver Broncos in the preseason Friday, Aug. 24.

    Huddle Up: Age isn't on Peterson's side, but he worked with the first-team offense and looked sharp in doing so. He could end up seeing a decent amount of the work on early downs and around the goal line for the Redskins, and Peterson might be worth the gamble as a RB3.

  • Samaje Perine - RB
    Posted 8/22/18 6:56am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (ankle) worked on the side without pads Tuesday, Aug. 21.

    Huddle Up: Timing is everything. Perine needs to quickly return to remain in the race for touches.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 8/22/18 6:47am ET

    Newly added Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson intends to be the team's starting tailback on Week 1 of the regular season. "Without a doubt," Peterson said. "And I would be cheating myself if that wasn't my approach." Peterson made his debut at practice Tuesday, Aug. 21. "He proved to us he's in great physical shape," head coach Jay Gruden said. Gruden also noted he wants see how Peterson's stamina is after he's taking some hits in the hole.

    Huddle Up: Peterson, 33, still has to make the final roster. Injuries at the position should help that happen if he does his part. He's tough to bank on in fantasy drafts, but may be worth the roster spot as a RB4 or RB5. In a best case situation, he'd be a two-down option and see work in the red zone.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 8/21/18 1:02pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson is in great shape and has a chance to play this weekend if he is caught up to speed, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Other than Chris Thompson, the Redskins' backfield is a crapshoot right now with Peterson being the latest shiny toy. Rob Kelley, Peterson and Samaje Perine all devalue each other but are all still draftable, oddly enough.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 8/21/18 11:48pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson is not considered a lock to make the 53-man roster with head coach Jay Gruden indicating Peterson is competing to be one of the team's 'first and second down guys.' Peterson's contract is not guaranteed unless he's on the active roster for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Peterson is competing with RBs Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley for a spot, and it doesn't sound like Gruden is married to the idea of having AD in DC for Week 1. Peterson's value is already marginal, but definitely keep an eye on his performance the next week-plus to see if he's even gonna make the cut.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 8/19/18 11:18am ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (illness) is participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 19.

    Huddle Up: Reed should be fine and likely will play in the next preseason game. He is a solid fantasy option when he is healthy but is a risky option in all leagues because of his injury history.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 8/18/18 1:07pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (illness) did not participate in practice Saturday, Aug. 18, because of an illness.

    Huddle Up: Reed probably will be back on the field in a few days and should be able to play in the third preseason game. Reed is a solid fantasy option when he is on the field but is a risky option in all leagues because of his lengthy injury history. Owners can consider him a No. 1 tight end this season but will need a solid backup plan.

  • Samaje Perine - RB
    Posted 8/17/18 11:54am ET

    Updating an ongoing story, Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (ankle) is expected to miss about one week, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: This comes as a relief for Perine and anyone considering him in fantasy drafts. He could face a setback against Rob Kelley in the battle for assuming RB1 duties vacated by the injured Derrius Guice. Either way, the winner is no better than a flex consideration.
