  Redskins | Greg Hardy not an option for Redskins    Tue Jul 26, 03:56 PM

Free-agent DE Greg Hardy (Cowboys) is not being considered by the Washington Redskins to replace LB Junior Galette (Achilles'), according to a source. Galette is out for the season with a torn Achilles' tendon.

Footballguys view: Hardy has gotten little interest on the open market as teams don't want to deal with his off-field baggage. Washington's pass rush was negatively impacted by the loss (again) of Galette, but even they aren't desperate enough to add Hardy.

  Redskins | Jamison Crowder to stay on the field    Mon Jul 25, 05:52 PM

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder will be kept on the field in three wide receiver sets, according to ESPN.com's John Keim.

Footballguys view: Crowder does a good job of getting open on underneath routes. He's going to have to compete with rookie first-round pick Josh Doctson to stay on the field as the team's third WR. Doctson is one of the most versatile WRs in this draft class, and he could easily line up as a slot receiver. We'll see how this competition shakes out in training camp.

  Redskins | Keith Marshall no threat to Matt Jones    Mon Jul 25, 05:45 PM

Washington Redskins rookie RB Keith Marshall is unlikely to be a threat to RB Matt Jones' workload, according to ESPN.com's John Keim.

Footballguys view: We like Marshall in dynasty leagues, but we also realize that he needs to stay healthy and prove that he can play special teams in order to make the 53-man roster this year. Marshall was a great high school back, but a devastating knee injury in college at Georgia knocked his career off track.

  Redskins | Limited playing time for Josh Doctson?    Mon Jul 25, 05:05 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson will back up WRs DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon on the outside in his rookie season, according to ESPN.com's John Keim. Keim also said Doctson is not expected to see much work in three-wide-receiver sets.

Footballguys view: We'll have to see how this shakes out. Doctson has the versatility to line up anywhere across the field--including the slot. At this time, second-year pro Jamison Crowder is penciled in to be the guy coming onto the field in three-WR sets. We'll see if Doctson can push for that job in camp.

  Redskins | Junior Galette out for season    Mon Jul 25, 03:34 PM

Washington Redskins LB Junior Galette (Achilles') has torn his Achilles' tendon and is out for the season.

Footballguys view: Galette has been with Washington for two seasons, and each one of them has ended with no games played due to an Achilles' injury. This year, reports indicate it is the right Achilles' that is injured whereas last year it was his left Achilles' that was hurt. Washington's pass rush is negatively impacted with this injury.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins playing for big money    Tue Jul 19, 02:55 AM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will receive $19.95 million for one year under the tag this year. The team was unwilling to give him a long-term deal, as general manager Scot McCloughan believes he can find a comparable quarterback who will be much cheaper than Cousins at some point in the next year or two.

Footballguys view: Cousins gambled on himself when he signed his one-year franchise tender earlier this year. He lost the leverage of a potential holdout (since he's under contract), and the two sides couldn't come to an agreement. If he plays well this year, Cousins could get a new deal that breaks the bank...either in Washington or somewhere else. With the right performance, Cousins could be in line for a deal that pays in $20 million per year on average.

  Redskins | Dez Stewart signs with Washington    Mon Jul 18, 05:26 PM

Free-agent WR Dez Stewart (Buccaneers) signed an undisclosed deal with the Washington Redskins Monday, July 18.


  Redskins | Marlon Brown of interest to Washington    Mon Jul 18, 01:07 PM

Free-agent WR Marlon Brown (Ravens) is working out for the Washington Redskins Monday, July 18.

Footballguys view: Brown made it through 10 games last year with the Ravens, but ended the year on I.R. due to a back injury. It seems like just yesterday when the UDFA out of Georgia was scoring seven TDs in 2013...but he hasn't scored since, got hurt and fell out of favor with the Ravens. Washington is fairly well stocked at the WR position, so we don't see a spot on the 53-man roster for Brown if he is even added.

  Redskins | Jimmy Clausen working out for 'Skins    Mon Jul 18, 12:46 PM

Free-agent QB Jimmy Clausen (Ravens) had a workout with the Washington Redskins Monday, July 18, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Washington has an interesting couple of QBs behind starter Kirk Cousins in Colt McCoy and rookie Nate Sudfeld. The team could be looking for a camp arm or someone to push McCoy for the backup job, and that's why Clausen may have gotten a workout.

  Redskins | DeAngelo Hall excited for new gig    Fri Jul 15, 09:15 PM

Washington Redskins S DeAngelo Hall said he is looking forward to his move to full-time safety in 2016 and believes he will 'put a little fear' in opposing quarterbacks because of his ability to create turnovers.

Footballguys view: Hall has the experience to roam the field and monitor where QBs are going with the ball. The starter opposite of him is going to be worked out in training camp, but don't be surprised if free agent addition David Bruton wins the job.

  Redskins | Washington made offer to Kirk Cousins    Fri Jul 15, 03:42 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has received an offer from the Redskins worth $16 million per season with $24 million in guaranteed money. Cousins will play under the franchise tag in 2016 for $20 million.

Footballguys view: Cousins signed his franchise tag months ago, and he's ready to gamble on himself. If he has another strong season as a starter for Washington, then he could perhaps secure a deal that pays him around $20 million annually.

  Redskins | Keith Marshall could be on block    Wed Jul 13, 05:16 PM

Washington Redskins RB Keith Marshall appears to have a good chance to make the 53-man roster at this point but could be on the roster bubble if the team adds a veteran running back during training camp, in the opinion of CSNMidAtlantic.com's Rich Tandler.

Footballguys view: Marshall was one of the best high school RBs in the country when he committed to play for the Georgia Bulldogs. A serious knee injury shortened his college career, but that natural rushing talent is still there. If Washington does add a veteran back to the mix, Marshall may be more likely to land on the practice squad.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson should be ready for camp    Wed Jul 13, 05:10 PM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (shoulder) did not participate in offseason workouts because of shoulder surgery but should be ready for training camp. Thompson is expected to be the third-down back for the Redskins in 2016.

Footballguys view: Thompson is a quick RB who can make defenders miss in the open field. However, he's not a big back and can get banged up. We're not counting on him to do a lot for fantasy owners. Matt Jones is the starter, and he should get most of the work for Washington. His current ADP is RB22 (5.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins won't land a deal    Fri Jul 8, 10:17 AM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has no contract discussions going on, and a source with knowledge of the situation said that no talks will happen. He won't sign a deal before the July 15 deadline for franchise players.

Footballguys view: Washington is going to see if Cousins can do it again. If he does, then he's going to make a ton of money. Cousins knows he has something to prove, and that's why he went ahead and signed his one-year franchise tag offer. The veteran QB will make $19 million in his second season as a starter. With a big year in 2016, he could land the long-term deal he wants from Washington.

  Redskins | Junior Galette looked explosive    Tue Jul 5, 04:43 PM

Washington Redskins LB Junior Galette (Achilles') looked explosive without pads during offseason activities, according to The Washington Post's Mike Jones. Galette is expected to be ready for training camp on his way back from a torn Achilles' tendon.

Footballguys view: Washington should be easy on Galette when he does return to the practice field as his status for the beginning of camp is in question. The team is likely to ease him back in, and he should begin the season as a part-time pass-rusher. He'll be almost a year removed from the injury when the regular season starts.

  Redskins | Vernon Davis could miss final roster    Mon Jun 27, 02:22 PM

Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis may not make the final roster if he does not improve as a pass-catcher and blocker, according to The Washington Post's Mike Jones. Jones currently has Davis penciled in as the No. 4 tight end in Washington.

Footballguys view: We wouldn't be shocked if Davis fails to make the 53-man roster in Washington. The Broncos traded for him last year, but Davis did next to nothing for the team as they won a Super Bowl. Jordan Reed is the top TE for Washington, and guys like Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen could be more valuable to the team as reserve players at the position. Davis is a name everyone knows, but his game pales in comparison to what it used to be.

  Redskins | Two Redskins rookies may not make team    Mon Jun 27, 02:09 PM

Washington Redskins rookie RB Keith Marshall and rookie QB Nate Sudfeld were left off the 53-man roster projection by Mike Jones of The Washington Post.

Footballguys view: We'll be watching both rookies closely. Marshall has the ability to be a quality starter if he can only stay healthy. A former star for the Georgia Bulldogs, Marshall suffered a knee injury that set him back for a couple of seasons. He's fast, agile and able to make defenders miss with ease. Sudfeld is a tall pocket passer with a strong arm. If these two rookies don't make the 53-man roster, we think both could stick as practice squad players i 2016.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins talks going nowhere    Fri Jun 24, 02:21 AM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has had discussions about a long-term deal over the last week, but talks continue to go nowhere. He's expected to play 2016 on the $19.95 million franchise tender.

Footballguys view: Washington is smart to wait before committing what will likely be at least 40-50 million dollars guaranteed and a contract value over 100 million. Cousins' fantasy outlook is enhanced by the extra motivation to earn a life-changing contract. He is severely undervalued at an ADP of QB18.

  Redskins | Jamison Crowder has impressed    Thu Jun 16, 02:41 PM

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder has excited the coaching staff in offseason practices. Crowder thought he wore down late last year, but he has looked decisive and explosive in his routes in practice this year. Washington will be reluctant to sit Crowder based on how he looked this spring, even when WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') is back. Crowder must show that he can shake defensive backs in press coverage, though.

Footballguys view: Crowder was mediocre last year despite catching a team rookie record 59 receptions. But then again, you don't ask all that much from fourth round receivers. With Josh Doctson a first round selection this year, we're not sure how much Crowder will have to do. We wouldn't draft him this year.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins taking charge    Thu Jun 16, 02:32 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins had some good and bad days during offseason practices, but it's clear that he's taking charge of the offense more and being decisive.

Footballguys view: Cousins "had some good and bad days during offseason practices" - that's the in depth analysis we love from the World Wide Leader. Let's dig a little deeper here. Cousins had a great 2015, despite a lot of critics waiting for him to fall apart. He topped 4,000 yards and threw for 29 touchdowns compared to just 11 interceptions. He was a huge reason the offense worked and will be the centerpiece of this offense as well. There is the question as to whether he can repeat, however, and while he's not just a game manager, he's not a top-shelf quarterback either at this point. You don't want to hear about him being inconsistent in OTAs, but that will happen so we're not concerned. We expect him to put up solid QB2 numbers and he has some upside, but we wouldn't pull the cord on adding him as a QB1 this year.

  Redskins | Matt Jones shows improvement    Thu Jun 16, 02:28 PM

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones took better paths off handoffs during offseason workouts and showed improvement in mandatory minicamp. The Redskins feel they're in a better spot they were in a year ago with Jones' development. The big question remains how Jones will respond to being the main back for a full season.

Footballguys view: Jones had moments during his rookie season, but needs to show more decisiveness in games. With the departure of Alfred Morris, he has the wheel to control the backfield and if he can keep building his game up, Jones will have a lot of opportunity. Right now Jones is going off as RB21 in early drafts and should work as a decent RB2/RB3.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed has looked good    Thu Jun 16, 02:24 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (ankle) missed three days of practice this week but looked very good when he was in camp, and the coaches' confidence in him has increased. Reed will work out on his own before reporting to training camp next month, and his work ethic has been an underrated part of his game. Reed has improved on getting free on certain routes.

Footballguys view: If Reed can stay healthy, he is a top TE1. The question is whether he can do that. Concussions and nagging injuries have derailed all three of his seasons, and is a concern. So this injury definitely worries us. That said, we'll keep an eye on it and if you are OK with the injury risk - and have a solid backup - his upside is huge.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed unable to participate    Thu Jun 16, 01:45 AM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (ankle) did not practice again Wednesday, June 15, as he deals with a sprained ankle.

Footballguys view: We're not terribly worried about Reed, though given his continual string of nagging injuries over the last few years--as well as his concussion issues--we'll be keeping an eye on this. If he is healthy, he's a top fantasy TE. There's the risk of injury with him, though, so make sure you have a solid backup.

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (tooth, Achilles') was absent from minicamp practice Wednesday, June 15, as he was having a tooth pulled, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: He should be ready for training camp, though he might want to lay off the Abba Zabbas and brush more frequently. Doctson has a lot of catching up to do, and while we believe he could have a role here, it's unclear what that will be. He has to find targets behind Desean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Jordan Reed. Right now he is no better than a WR5 or WR6.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson misses practice    Thu Jun 16, 01:36 AM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) missed practice Wednesday, June 15, as he deals with a back ailment.

Footballguys view: Thompson is battling Mack Brown and Keith Marshall for the backup role to Matt Jones. While he stepped up well last season there is no guarantee that he will remain the pass-catching back and has to get back on the field to secure his spot. Right now his ADP is RB67 and it could drop rapidly if this injury won't clear up.

  Redskins | Keith Marshall battling hammy issue    Thu Jun 16, 01:35 AM

Washington Redskins RB Keith Marshall (hamstring) missed practice Wednesday, June 15, as he is battling a hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: A seventh round pick in 2015, Marshall sat on the practice squad last season. He is going to be in danger of getting cut if this hamstring lingers into training camp. A guy on the fringe, Marshall had numerous injuries at Georgia and will have to shake that concern if he is to win a backup job to Matt Jones.

  Redskins | Contract not bothering Kirk Cousins    Tue Jun 14, 05:43 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is not focused on a long-term deal this offseason. The deadline to reach a deal is July 15, and Cousins and the Redskins will not be permitted to negotiate a deal until the end of the 2016 season if they do not reach a deal by July 15.

Footballguys view: Cousins almost immediately signed his franchise tender and is set with a one-year deal worth $19.9 million. He wants to prove that he's more than a one-year wonder, so his focus is on improving as a passer. Fantasy owners should be excited about Cousins as a fantasy asset. He's a high-end QB2 who could get super hot in certain matchups.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed has ankle sprain    Tue Jun 14, 03:31 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (ankle) missed minicamp Tuesday, June 14, because of an ankle sprain he suffered last week, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Reed is not expected to practice this week.

Footballguys view: This is an injury that may not keep Reed out of training camp, but it still should be a story fantasy owners watch. Reed is supremely talented and a TE1 in fantasy football, but he's got a long injury history. With 14 games missed in three years, Reed has problems shaking the injury bug.

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') is not practicing during the team's minicamp Tuesday, June 14. He missed the previous three weeks of practices with a tweaked left Achilles'.

Footballguys view: Washington needs to be careful with the rookie here. Doctson can be a dominant player at the pro level because he'll catch nearly everything thrown his way. This season, a healthy Doctson would be counted on as a WR3 for Washington behind starters DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins looking to improve    Mon Jun 13, 01:14 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said receiving all of the snaps with the first-team offense during organized team activities has helped him because he believes he can build on his 2015 performance. 'I do think I'm playing with more confidence,' Cousins said. 'I have a better understanding of defenses and our scheme and our protections and our routes. And, as a result, I'm able to grow as a player.'

Footballguys view: Cousins wants to be more than a one-year wonder. In an effort to improve, Cousins has put in the extra time and work necessary this offseason. It's a great sign for his progress as the team's starter, and fantasy owners should be excited about what Washington can do through the air. Cousins has a current ADP of QB15 (10.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said there has been no progress in contract talks with the Redskins. The Redskins have until July 15 to work out a long-term contract with Cousins.

Footballguys view: Cousins took a different stance than other franchise-tagged players because he almost immediately signed his franchise tender. For 2016, Cousins in on the books for $19.9 million...but it's just a one-year deal. Washington could sign him to a long-term deal to give Cousins security and perhaps lower his cap number for the upcoming season.

  Redskins | Josh Norman likes new defense    Fri Jun 10, 05:10 PM

Washington Redskins CB Josh Norman said he has a good understanding of the team's defense and likes that he will be given a little more freedom on the field under defensive coordinator Joe Barry.

Footballguys view: Norman is a player just coming into his own as a pro. He was a star last year for the Panthers defense, and we have a feeling he's going to be extra motivated this year after the way things fell apart in Carolina. Norman and Bashaud Breeland give Washington a fine starting duo at the CB position.

  Redskins | Matt Jones working on ball security    Wed Jun 8, 02:49 PM

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones is working on his ball security this offseason after he lost four fumbles in 163 touches in 2015 as a rookie. Jones is using a 'special ball' that has sensors in it that will detect if he is putting significant pressure on a key point of the ball as he carries it. If there is pressure on all of the key points of the ball, the ball remains silent. If the grip loosens, a warning signal goes off.

Footballguys view: Somewhere our very own Sigmund Bloom is saying, "ah, technology." Jones is going to be the lead back for Washington this year, but if the fumble problems persist we could see the team go in a different direction. We're keeping our eyes on rookie Keith Marshall (Georgia) behind Jones on the depth chart.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson shows up to OTAs    Mon Jun 6, 01:48 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson is with the team for the third week of organized team activities after skipping the first two weeks. His absence wasn't that big of a surprise this year, as Jackson has skipped voluntary practices in previous years.

Footballguys view: Jackson stays away during voluntary minicamps, but he shows up for mandatory work. In the final year of his deal with Washington, it will be interesting to see if Jackson can stay healthy and put up better numbers than he did last year. In 2015, Jackson missed five games and set career lows for targets (49), receptions (30) and yards (528). We see him as a high-upside WR3 or flex play for fantasy owners, and he has a current ADP of WR37 (8.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (foot) is taking it slow with his foot injury. Washington wants Doctson to watch now and not risk having him watch next month because of a setback or aggravation. The injury is not serious, however.

Footballguys view: The team added Doctson in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft. Coming out of TCU as a true No.1 wide receiver, it will be interesting to see how he fits in Washington with Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson above him on the depth chart. Doctson could be the team's WR3 while he gets up to speed at the pro level.

  Redskins | Jamison Crowder, Ryan Grant seeing chances    Fri Jun 3, 12:06 PM

Washington Redskins WRs Jamison Crowder and Ryan Grant are trying to seize opportunities with WRs DeSean Jackson and Josh Doctson (foot) out of practices right now. Crowder had an active day Wednesday, June 1, receiving more targets from QB Kirk Cousins than any other first-team receiver. Doctson can also play the slot and could cut into Crowder's playing time. Grant lined up opposite WR Pierre Garcon and showed crisp route running and soft hands.

Footballguys view: We've seen Crowder make plays last year as a rookie. It will be interesting to see what his role becomes now that the team added Doctson in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft. Grant has great hands and does a good job of tracking passes over his shoulder. We appreciate his value in dynasty leagues, but don't see much of a role for him in 2016 with such a stacked group of WRs ahead of him in Washington.

  Redskins | Rob Kelley impresses during practice    Fri Jun 3, 11:52 AM

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley impressed during workouts Wednesday, June 1. He's desperately trying to catch the eyes of coaching while playing behind RB Matt Jones and alongside RBs Keith Marshall, Mack Brown and Chris Thompson. Kelley showed a knack for finding a whole, accelerating quickly and changing direction. Kelley thinks he's a good fit for the zone-blocking scheme.

Footballguys view: Washington picked up Kelley as an undrafted free agent this year out of Tulane. Kelley ran 318 times for 1,270 and six touchdowns in his career with The Green Wave. Measuring in at 6' 220 pounds, Kelley is a versatile player who played as a pass-catching back, running back and even fullback in college. He's worth keeping an eye on in super deep dynasty leagues.
