  Redskins | Josh Doctson key for Kirk Cousins?    Thu Jul 20, 11:26 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson's progression this season could help determine if QB Kirk Cousins decides to sign a long-term extension, according to JP Finlay of CSNMidAtlantic.com.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins wants to stay in Washington    Tue Jul 18, 07:54 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins' first choice is to stay with the Redskins despite both sides not agreeing on a long-term deal. Cousins said he would love to stay in Washington long term and has hope for getting a deal done next offseason.

Footballguys view: Can we really believe that? Especially after Bruce Allen kept calling him Kurt when the team publicly revealed the offer they made Cousins before the July 17th deadline for franchise players. Cousins is focused on football now, but next offseason we could see him bolting for a team like the 49ers where he would be reunited with Kyle Shanahan.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins was offered big money    Mon Jul 17, 04:47 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was offered $53 million guaranteed as part of the Redskins' offer in early May, according to team president Bruce Allen.

Footballguys view: What a weird story. The NFL is full of twists and turns, and this was Washington making a public statement where they put out the full data on the offer for Cousins. Along with the salary offer, the statement also read "Kirk has made it clear he prefers to play on a year-to-year basis." Even though they could franchise tag Cousins for a third year in 2018 (at the cost of $34 million), it looks like he'll be playing elsewhere (San Francisco?) next season.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins will play under tag again    Mon Jul 17, 04:38 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was not given a new deal prior to the deadline Monday, July 17. He will play under the franchise tag for a second straight year.

Footballguys view: Cousins is the first quarterback in NFL history to play under the tag for two years in a row. With a price tag of around $24 million, Cousins will have made around $40 million in two seasons combined. They could tag him again next year, but we think Cousins is playing elsewhere in 2018.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins' best offer came in May    Mon Jul 17, 09:04 AM

Updating an ongoing story, Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins' best contract offer was received in May, which was higher than $20 million per year. The contract only added one guaranteed year, but it was worth less than the $23.9 million he's slated to make via the franchise tag.

Footballguys view: Washington just doesn't seem to have enough faith in Cousins to give him a deal he feels is worth accepting. He's going to bet on himself -- again -- with a price tag around $24 million this season. Washington could franchise tag Cousins for a third time, but that would elevate his price tag to an unthinkable $34 million for 2018. Cousins is the first quarterback in NFL history to play under the franchise tag for two years in a row.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins open to deal after season    Sun Jul 16, 03:40 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is not expected to sign a long-term deal before the 4 p.m. ET deadline Monday, July 17. However, Cousins is reportedly open to doing a deal with the team after this season as there has been 'a positive, constructive tone' to recent contract talks, per a source.

Footballguys view: Cousins has been franchise-tagged each of the last two years. They can actually tag him for a third year (at a cost just above $34 million), but working out a long-term contract might (finally) make more sense.

  Redskins | Two Redskins working with a legend    Thu Jul 13, 01:14 PM

Washington Redskins WRs Terrelle Pryor and Jamison Crowder have been working out with former NFL WR Randy Moss.

Footballguys view: There is a lot of room for both, with the departure of both Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson. We like what Pryor did in Cleveland but Crowder is the guy to own here. We don't expect spectacular numbers, as the two receivers will eat each other's production a bit. Both seem like they are decent values though. Right now, Pryor is tracking higher in early drafts with an ADP of 51 overall and the 23rd receiver off the board while Crowder is just a bit behind as the 33rd receiver and an overall ADP of 78.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins deal still unlikely    Thu Jul 13, 08:33 AM

Updating an ongoing story, Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is likely to play for the franchise tag in 2017, and both sides are complacent with it, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Cousins is betting on himself again, which worked well for him in 2016, but Washington is like that guy who bets against the shooter at a craps table. Washington is only able make their money by getting him cheap if he regresses. We're expecting another solid year from Cousins, perhaps with a slight dip in yards, but still good touchdown production. His current ADP of 86, as the No. 12 quarterback off the board hits about where we think the mark should be.

  Redskins | Washington, Kirk Cousins still not close    Wed Jul 12, 05:31 PM

The Washington Redskins still have not made much progress in contract talks with QB Kirk Cousins and the two sides are not close to a deal.

Footballguys view: Washington has until July 17th to sign Cousins to a long-term deal and time is winding down. Earlier reports had a small glimmer of hope, but that's been extinguished in recent days. Cousins looks to play for the second straight season on the franchise tag. He'll make almost $24 million on the one-year tender if he doesn't get a deal done by next Monday.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins deal still a long shot    Mon Jul 10, 12:05 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins signing a long-term deal before the July 17 deadline remains a long shot.

Footballguys view: There were conflicting reports last month about the possibility of Cousins getting the long-term deal he's been waiting for. This is another report in the pessimistic column...and the two sides are running out of time. The deadline to sign franchise tagged players is July 17th.

  Redskins | Three WAS LBs may compete for one spot    Sun Jul 9, 06:15 PM

Washington Redskins LBs Martrell Spaight, Chris Carter and Zach Vigil could compete for one roster spot during training camp if the team decides to keep only four inside linebackers. Spaight may be the leading candidate for the spot because the team liked how he played at inside linebacker in 2016.

Footballguys view: Will Compton, Mason Foster, and Zach Brown will be the top three, and all have been relevant in IDP leagues at different times in their careers, with Brown having the most value. Foster came on a nickel linebacker last year and could three-down value if he starts. Spaight has the advantage for the #3 job because the team was happy with his play when Compton missed time last year.

  Redskins | Doug Williams to help make roster decisions    Sat Jul 8, 10:51 AM

Washington Redskins senior vice president of player personnel Doug Williams is expected to have equal say on roster decisions with head coach Jay Gruden and team president Bruce Allen.

Footballguys view: Washington fired Scot McCloughan only two years into his tenure, which seems to be successful. Without an account of what happened, it's hard to know how "safe" Williams will be if he goes against the word of Allen and Gruden, but for now he is giving every indication that he will be autonomous (as he should).

  Redskins | Vernon Davis still elusive    Fri Jul 7, 11:04 PM

Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis forced 13 missed tackles last year, the most by any tight end, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Davis isn't draftable, but if Jordan Reed misses time this year, he'll be on our priority waiver wire list. He has had a surprising amount of good football left in him after a lackluster stint with the Broncos.

  Redskins | Samaje Perine may be limited early    Wed Jul 5, 03:38 PM

Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine could receive limited touches during the early portion of the season but has the chance to lead the team in carries during some games in November and December, in the opinion of CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler.

Footballguys view: He's going to have to carve out carries from the load Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson get. Kelley is the one we favor, though we still don't love him as more than an occasional start or bench depth. His ADP is currently 102, the 37th back off the board, while Chris Thompson, who serves as more of a third down back, is the 197th player overall in ADP, and the No. 63 running back off the board.

  Redskins | Two Redskins RBs may be on bubble    Wed Jul 5, 03:37 PM

Washington Redskins RBs Mack Brown and Keith Marshall may be on the roster bubble during training camp, in the opinion of CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler. Brown could make the roster as the No. 4 running back if the Redskins decide to keep three tight ends.

Footballguys view: With rookie Samaje Perine along with Rob Kelley, Chris Thompson and even Matt Jones, there's very little room left for either Brown or Marshall. Even if one of them sneaks on the roster, he won't have fantasy value.

  Washington | Matt Jones hires new agent    Sun Jul 2, 04:46 PM

Washington running back Matt Jones has signed Drew Rosenhaus as his agent.

Footballguys view: It's likely Rosenhaus will help Jones secure his release from Washington. Too bad the superstar agent can't help Jones hang onto the rock. The starter to begin 2016, Jones fumbled the job away and only appeared in seven games last year. Jones is big (6'2" 231 pounds) but runs like a finesse back. He'll have a new home at or near the start of training camp.

  Redskins | Jamison Crowder to lead team in targets?    Tue Jun 27, 12:17 PM

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder will 'definitely' get targeted more often than Terrelle Pryor, according to CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler.

Footballguys view: The numbers keep going up for Crowder over the last two years, and we expect that trend to continue this year. He could easily be projected for around 75 catches, but the potential for a 100-catch season is there. Crowder could be a great value at his current ADP of WR30 (6.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins deal still a long shot    Tue Jun 27, 10:52 AM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins reaching a long-term deal is still a long shot, according to sources. There are promising signs of late, though.

Footballguys view: Cousins has been slapped with the franchise tag each of the last two years, and it only makes sense for Washington to get him on a long-term deal ASAP. There was some optimism in this situation a couple of weeks ago, but with the July 17th deadline looming things look a little more bleak. He's set to make almost $24 million in 2017.

  Redskins | Samaje Perine making coach confident    Mon Jun 26, 03:22 PM

Washington Redskins rookie RB Samaje Perine already has a good feel for the game, good feet, good vision and good strength, according to running backs coach Randy Jordan. Perine has also impressed with his catching ability. Jordan said Perine catches the football 'so much better' than he thought he could.

Footballguys view: Just think of former Falcons starter Michael Turner when you think of Perine. Physically, they have the same body style with a short/stocky build and a large/strong lower body. Perine is going to split time with Rob Kelley for Washington this year. Add in change-of-pace back Chris Thompson and you can see how things are a little complicated from a fantasy perspective. Right now, Perine has the highest ADP of the trio and the rookie is coming off the board at RB36 (8.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Washington | Perine and Kelley will lead solid rushing attack    Sun Jun 25, 10:09 PM

John Keim, from ESPN.com, reports that both Rob Kelley and rookie Samaje Perine will lead a solid rushing attack for Washington in 2017. In their last two home games of 2016, Washington faced Carolina (ninth in yards per attempt) and the New York Giants (second). They managed a combined 67 yards on 28 carries. They just weren't good enough versus top run defenses and that could change this season.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to monitor this situation in training camp. Both backs will be used, and Washington should also use Chris Thompson as a receiving back. Kelley wore down as the season went on last year, while Perine is a powerful rookie who reminds everyone of Michael Turner (Falcons). Right now, Perine (RB36) and Kelley (RB41) have virtually identical ADPs in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Brian Quick on bubble    Sat Jun 24, 02:52 PM

Washington Redskins WR Brian Quick struggled was disappointing during offseason workouts and will need a strong training camp to make the final roster, in the opinion of CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler.

Footballguys view: Quick signed a one-year, $855,000 deal in March, receiving a mere $80,000 signing bonus but he's not guaranteed a roster spot. Washington has a new-look WR corps with Terrelle Pryor, Josh Doctson and Jamison Crowder as their top three at the position. Even if Quick does make the team, he's unlikely to make a fantasy impact.

  Redskins | Terrelle Pryor reaching out to NFL greats    Sat Jun 24, 01:08 PM

Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor is working out 'at various points in the summer' with Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown and seeks out the counsel of former NFL receiver Randy Moss on a regular basis, according to ESPN's John Keim.

Footballguys view: Pryor had a breakout season last year with the Browns, finishing with 77 catches, 1,007 yards plus four touchdowns which helped him rank as the 20th fantasy WR in 2016. In his first season with Washington, fantasy owners should project Pryor with around 70 catches. He's going off the board at WR18 (3.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Jamison Crowder 'can play anywhere'    Fri Jun 23, 12:12 PM

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder received a ton of praise from head coach Jay Gruden in a recent interview with the Washington Post.

Footballguys view: The one constant at the WR position for Washington this year is Crowder. With DeSean Jackson (Buccaneers) and Pierre Garcon (49ers) gone in free agency, Washington will have a different look when it comes to their pass catchers. Terrelle Pryor could be the primary target for QB Kirk Cousins and of course TE Jordan Reed will have a significant role. Crowder is there to catch 70 or more catches this year, and there's a chance he could get 90-ish receptions in 2017 depending on how things shake out around him.

  Redskins | Odds strong Kirk Cousins re-signs?    Tue Jun 20, 12:10 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has 'become a leader and a fixture at a position of perpetual angst for (team owner Dan) Snyder,' according to CBS sports Jason La Confora, who believes there is now an 80 percent chance Cousins signs a long-term deal with the Redskins.

Footballguys view: Things change quickly around the NFL. Cousins didn't seem to be in the long-term plans for Washington after back-to-back franchise tags (2016, 2017). The team could get a new deal done that gives Cousins the security every player is looking for. If Cousins were to hit the open market, we'd expect a team like the 49ers to break the bank to get him.

  Redskins | Nate Sudfeld impresses    Mon Jun 19, 11:04 AM

Washington Redskins QB Nate Sudfeld impressed senior vice president of player personnel Doug Williams in practice Tuesday, June 13. Williams said that the way Sudfeld practiced, he would have been a first- or second-round pick.

Footballguys view: Sudfeld is a tall, strong-armed developmental passer we're intrigued by. A sixth-round pick out of Indiana in 2016, Sudfeld looks like your prototypical pocket passer. At 6'6" 230 pounds, Sudfeld stands tall behind the line of scrimmage and can throw with proper velocity and anticipation. He's not yet found consistency to his game, so just keep him in mind if you play in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Redskins | Ryan Grant 'our most consistent guy'    Sat Jun 17, 06:52 PM

Washington Redskins WR Ryan Grant is 'our most consistent guy, without a doubt, as far as being able to line up everywhere, run the routes exactly how we want them at the right depth coming out of them,' head coach Jay Gruden told reporters during minicamp.

Footballguys view: Another day and another report praising Grant. Earlier this month, Washington coach Jay Gruden said Grant can line up 'all over the place' and is 'going to play' this season. Grant is fourth on the WR depth chart (at best) in Washington and fifth or sixth in the pecking order for targets when you include TE Jordan Reed and RB Chris Thompson. These reports are interesting for dynasty owners, but the path is cluttered in front of Grant if he wants to produce in 2017.

Washington Redskins vice president of player personnel Doug Williams said the team wants to sign QB Kirk Cousins to a long-term extension in the worst way. Williams said the two sides have been negotiating this offseason.

Footballguys view: They've placed the franchise tag on Cousins for two years in a row. Now that the front office in Washington has been settled, perhaps they'll finally get Cousins the long-term deal he's been looking for.

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones' agent has asked the team to release Jones. Jones is close with new Redskins senior vice president of player personnel Doug Williams, who told him to put his head down and compete. Jones said he would work hard to earn back his starting spot.

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones was spotted at the team's facility Tuesday, June 13.

Footballguys view: Cue the Marshawn Lynch "I'm here so I won't get fined" drop. That's why Jones is at mandatory minicamp after skipping all of the team's voluntary workouts. Jones is buried on the depth chart, he's unhappy about that and likely to get traded or released because of it. No matter where he lands, we don't see Jones all of a sudden becoming a fantasy force in the NFL.

  Redskins | Doug Williams promoted    Tue Jun 13, 09:10 AM

Washington Redskins team official Doug Williams was promoted to senior vice president of player personnel Tuesday, June 13.

Footballguys view: Washington gets some stability in their front office with the promotion for Williams. Team president Bruce Allen retains much of the power, but Williams has been working in player personnel (Tampa Bay, Washington) since 2004 and has an eye for talent. Vice president of football administration Eric Schaffer was promoted to vice president of football operations.

  Redskins | Jamison Crowder will be starter    Mon Jun 12, 10:08 AM

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder will play on the outside in two-receiver sets and inside in three-wide sets. He'll also return punts.

Footballguys view: Crowder's numbers keep going up, and in 2017 he may post career highs in all the major categories. The team is going to distribute targets differently with DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon moving on in free agency. It sounds like Terrelle Pryor will be the "X" receiver while Crowder will play the "Z" receiver. There was a report last week that Josh Doctson would play the "Z" but he might only get on the field when Washington goes to three wide receivers.

Washington Redskins WR Ryan Grant's versatility stands out, according to head coach Jay Gruden, and Gruden said Grant can line up 'all over the place' and is 'going to play' this season.

Footballguys view: Grant's versatility will have to earn him a spot on the 53-man roster. He's fourth on the depth chart (at best) in Washington's WR corps. Grant will compete with guys like Brian Quick and Matt Hazel in training camp. There's no fantasy value to be had here with Grant, and even in dynasty leagues his stock is incredibly low.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson the new Pierre Garcon    Sun Jun 11, 08:14 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson will be used in the Z receiver role to start the season, head coach Jay Gruden said. Last year, San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon occupied the Z receiver role for the Redskins.

Footballguys view: That means Doctson should be in for over 100 targets this year. Projecting 50 catches (or more) for the second-year pro is not outlandish. Doctson is behind WR Terrelle Pryor and TE Jordan Reed in the pecking order (perhaps WR Jamison Crowder too), but he's still got WR5/flex appeal for fantasy owners. He has a current ADP of WR56 (12.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley has earned the right to start, according to offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh, but Cavanaugh said he has confidence in all the backs and plans to ride the 'hot hand.'

Footballguys view: The Washington running back situation is one to watch for fantasy owners. Kelley could be the main back, but rookie Samaje Perine is going to push him for playing time. Add in Chris Thompson as a third-down back and you can see how this situation could be a source of frustration in fantasy circles. Monitor this closely when considering Kelley, Perine or Thompson.

  Redskins | Keith Marshall's spot in jeopardy    Fri Jun 9, 11:22 PM

Washington Redskins RB Keith Marshall is facing an uphill climb to make the roster, according to Rich Tandler of CSNMidAtlantic.com.

Footballguys view: With the addition of Samaje Perine in the 2017 NFL draft, Washington is flush at the position. Rob Kelley should be the lead back, but Perine is going to push him for touches as a runner. Chris Thompson will work as the primary pass-catching back. That doesn't leave much for Marshall if he makes the 53-man roster. He's a lottery ticket addition in super deep dynasty leagues but that's it.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson showing his skills    Fri Jun 9, 10:26 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson has been impressing the coaching staff with his catch radius during OTAs.

Footballguys view: Doctson had an impressive skill set coming out of TCU as a first-round pick in 2016. An Achilles' injury limited him to only two games as a rookie, but he's working his way back. Doctson not only has a large catch radius because of his size/athleticism but he also has strong hands and can rip away contested catches from a defender. We could see him catching 50 or so passes for fantasy owners this year.

  Redskins | Big season coming for Terrelle Pryor?    Thu Jun 8, 10:43 PM

Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor has a chance to reach 1,500 receiving yards as the go-to target for QB Kirk Cousins, according to NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt.

Footballguys view: The best may be yet to come with Pryor. The converted quarterback had a breakthrough season last year for the Browns, finishing with 77 catches for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns. With DeSean Jackson (Buccaneers) and Pierre Garcon (49ers) moving on in free agency, Pryor is now the top wideout for Washington in his first year with the team. Both Jackson (100) and Garcon (114) hit the century mark in terms of targets in 2016, so expect Pryor to be targeted in a similar manner. He's used to a heavy target load as Pryor was thrown 141 passes last year for the Browns.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins talks pick up    Wed Jun 7, 08:39 AM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has had encouraging contract talks recently, which owner Daniel Snyder has gotten involved in, and he expressed an interest in re-signing Cousins.

Footballguys view: Talks may have been more positive lately, but that's because they were so frosty (and basically non-existent) before this offseason. Cousins representation has met with team president Bruce Allen twice in 2017, and that marks the first time they've sat down to talk since Cousins was first slapped with the franchise tag two years ago. There is belief that even if a deal isn't completed by the July 15 franchise tag deadline, one could be completed after the season.
