  Redskins | Robert Griffin III needs to be ordinary    Tue Aug 4, 06:25 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Griffin had a fantastic rookie season in 2012, but injuries have robbed him of the athleticism that gave him such huge potential. Now, he's got to make better decisions from the pocket as a passer. If he makes a mistake, Griffin needs to show better composure and get back on track. This is shaping up to be a make-or-break season for Griffin.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson confident in abilities    Tue Aug 4, 12:56 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Jackson's 13 plays over 40 yards last year includes at least three from every quarterback Washington trotted out there. He's not that far off base. If Washington can get just incremental improvement from their passer (whoever it is), Jackson could be a value. It's still hard to bet any part of your fantasy team on Washington's ability to be consistent and competitive.

  Redskins | Tevin Mitchell could be out for year    Mon Aug 3, 02:56 PM

Washington Redskins rookie CB Tevin Mitchel (shoulder) is expected to miss the season after undergoing shoulder surgery.

Footballguys view: More bad news for the Washington secondary here. The sixth-round pick out of Arkansas has a history of getting banged up, and now he's going to miss his rookie season. With Bashaud Breeland sidelined for likely all of the preseason with a sprained MCL, Washington will turn to guys like Justin Rogers to play the slot corner.

  Redskins | Matt Jones day-to-day    Mon Aug 3, 02:52 PM

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

Footballguys view: Knee soreness is going to slow the Jones hype train down a bit. Some fantasy owners are expecting Jones to push Alfred Morris for fantasy relevance. We're not as excited about the rookie back as some. Morris is steady, and he should be Washington's leading rusher again this season. If healthy, Jones could play as a change-of-pace back behind Morris.

  Redskins | Matt Jones tweaks knee    Sun Aug 2, 11:59 PM

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

Footballguys view: We'll know more about Jones' knee when injury information is released. The rookie is a favorite of the coaching staff, and there are some who think he'll carve out a decent role behind Alfred Morris this year. We're not blown away by Jones' skill set, and we recommend keeping him on your waiver wire speed dial this year. Jones won't have much fantasy value unless Morris is hurt.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed trying to shed label    Sun Aug 2, 08:10 AM

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.

Footballguys view: Reed got a stem cell injection this offseason for his hamstring and knee issues. While it could help, it is not a good sign about Reed's injury outlook. Niles Paul was re-signed by Washington this offseason and could easily end up being the more valuable tight end for fantasy leagues.

  Redskins | Jamison Crowder making plays    Sat Aug 1, 10:25 PM

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.'

Footballguys view: The rookie from Duke has drawn comparisons to Eddie Royal because of his ability to make defenders miss in the open field. We're not expecting much from Crowder yet for fantasy purposes. The Washington QB situation has to play out before we get too excited about Crowder. Add him and monitor him in dynasty leagues.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin perfect Friday    Fri Jul 31, 08:06 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Better news for Griffin here. He opened up camp with a bad performance, but he had a bounce-back day on Friday. We'll see if he can perform at a high level when starting in the preseason.

  Redskins | Bashaud Breeland out 6-8 weeks    Fri Jul 31, 07:32 PM

Washington Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland (knee) is expected to be sidelined for six to eight weeks because of a knee injury he suffered during practice Friday, July 31.

Footballguys view: Damn. First he was slapped with a one-game suspension, and now this. DeAngelo Hall is now locked into the starting lineup opposite Chris Culliver.

  Redskins | Bashaud Breeland suspended    Fri Jul 31, 12:49 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland was suspended for Week 1 of the 2015 season by the NFL, according to sources, for his recent marijuana citation.

Footballguys view: Breeland is looking to be more consistent in year two. He's suspended for Week 1, but he'll be able to practice and compete for a starting spot in training camp. His main competition is veteran DeAngelo Hall.

  Redskins | Junior Galette joining roster    Fri Jul 31, 12:07 PM

Updating previous reports, free-agent LB Junior Galette (Saints) will sign a one-year contract with the Washington Redskins, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Washington lost Brian Orakpo in free agency, although injuries had kept Orakpo from having a huge impact lately. Galette is instantly the second-best edge rusher on the roster and should help the Washington pass defense. He signed a league minimum deal, which he can afford to after getting 20+ million guaranteed from the Saints last year.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin III shaky Thursday    Thu Jul 30, 10:14 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was inconsistent during full-team workouts Thursday, July 30, throwing high to his targets at times.

Footballguys view: This is not what you wanted to hear if you're a Griffin supporter. He seems to be in a make-or-break year with Washington. If he falters, then Washington could put in Kirk Cousins or Colt McCoy at quarterback. We'll see if he can shake off the rust and start looking better as camp goes on.

  Redskins | Junior Galette to visit 'Skins    Thu Jul 30, 01:10 AM

Free-agent LB Junior Galette (Saints) will visit the Washington Redskins Thursday, July 30. He will take a physical and meet with team officials.

Footballguys view: Released by the Saints last week, Galette could draw some interest from other teams even though he's had trouble off the field. Washington is looking for a pass-rusher to use opposite of Ryan Kerrigan, and coming off a 10-sack season Galette could be that guy.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed cleared    Wed Jul 29, 05:38 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (knee) has been cleared for full participation in training camp, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Reed has talent, but he's got to stay healthy to produce on the field if he wants to play up to his potential. Washington signed Niles Paul to a three-year contract extension earlier this year, and he should be their starting tight end.

  Redskins | Ryan Kerrigan signs extension    Wed Jul 29, 01:29 PM

Washington Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan signed a five-year contract extension Wednesday, July 29, worth $11.5 million per season, according to a source. The deal includes a $16 million signing bonus.

Footballguys view: Kerrigan has dominated during his time in the league. Set to play on his fifth-year option that would pay him roughly $7 million this season, Washington decided it was best to lock up a guy who hasn't missed a start since he came into the league back in 2011.

  Redskins | Mack Brown signs    Mon Jul 27, 05:00 PM

Free-agent RB Mack Brown (Texans) signed with the Washington Redskins Monday, July 27.

Footballguys view: Brown signed with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of Florida earlier this year. He'll compete for a spot on Washington's practice squad, and he could make the final roster if he stands out on special teams.


  Redskins | Pierre Garcon in contract year?    Thu Jul 23, 07:50 PM

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon could be in a contract year in 2015. He will cost $10.25 million against the salary cap next season, according to ESPN.com's John Keim.

Footballguys view: There's only $2.2 million left in dead money on Garcon's contract in 2016. He needs to have a strong season this year to justify that $10.2 million cap hit next year.

  Redskins | Michael Hill waived    Thu Jul 23, 05:41 PM

Washington Redskins RB Michael Hill was waived Thursday, July 23.

Footballguys view: It's been awhile since Hill touched the ball in the regular season back in 2013 with the Buccaneers. He's been on five different teams in two seasons, so even fantasy owners in deep dynasty leagues don't need to monitor him.

Michael Hill player page


  Redskins | Not interested in Santana Moss    Wed Jul 22, 02:34 PM

Free-agent WR Santana Moss (Redskins) is not a player the Washington Redskins are interested in re-signing at this time. The team could pursue him if one of their veteran wide receivers suffers an injury.

Footballguys view: After catching 42 passes in 2013, Moss only hauled in 10 grabs last year. He's not the same player he used to be, but there might be some team interested in adding him as veteran depth.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson the best at big plays?    Sat Jul 18, 09:49 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson has 48 catches of 40-plus yards over seven seasons, and he led the NFL with 13 such catches in 2014.

Footballguys view: Jackson is a fantastic deep threat who can fly down the field and get by defenders while tracking the pass over his shoulder. In Washington's offense, Jackson has the potential to finish as a top-20 fantasy receiver. Right now, Jackson has an ADP of WR28 (6.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | DeAngelo Hall may restructure contract    Sat Jul 18, 01:27 PM

Washington Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall (Achilles') could be asked to restructure his current $4 million contract, according to csnwashington.com.

Footballguys view: Hall suffered an Achilles' injury in 2014, and Washington may not want to spend $4 million on Hall if that injury were aggravated. There's also been speculation earlier this offseason that Hall could be moved to free safety.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed still reliable?    Tue Jul 14, 03:22 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (knee) was held out of offseason activities due to knee surgery, but he is expected to participate in training camp later this month. Reed has also battled issues with his hamstring, hip, thigh, thumb and a concussion.

Footballguys view: Reed is so injury prone that even Tony Moeaki thinks he needs to change his routine. Fantasy owners know that Reed has talent, but his propensity to get injured makes him a risky addition. He's worth taking a chance on as a late-round flier in re-draft leagues. Right now, Reed is going off the board at TE20 (13.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Niles Paul ready if needed    Sat Jul 11, 03:45 PM

Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul is prepared to step in and start if TE Jordan Reed struggles with injuries again this season. Paul practiced some with the first team this offseason and head coach Jay Gruden praised his development. Reed will start if and when he's healthy, but Reed has missed 12 games in his first two seasons in the league.

Footballguys view: Paul is a converted wide receiver who has terrific speed for a tight end. Washington must like him because they signed Paul to a three-year deal with 2.25 million guaranteed before Paul could hit free agency this offseason. He proved to be a viable bye/injury/emergency level play when Reed was out last year.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed on track for training camp    Fri Jul 10, 09:13 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (knee) is expected to be ready to report for the start of training camp Wednesday, July 29.

Footballguys view: If his first two years are any indication, Reed won't be healthy for long. The team re-signed Niles Paul to provide a "1A" option with Reed, and Paul could easily be the more valuable Washington TE to own in fantasy leagues this year.

  Redskins | HC excited about Robert Griffin    Thu Jul 9, 06:30 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's progress this offseason has head coach Jay Gruden excited. Gruden said Griffin improved during organized team activities, adding that the more comfortable Griffin becomes with the terminology and reads, the more he'll keep improving. Gruden also said that Griffin has taken over as a leader, but that the team and coaching staff still need to be patient with him.

Footballguys view: This is a change in tone from Gruden's previous remarks about Griffin. His running ability gives Griffin a high ceiling for a late-round QB, and if he has really turned things around, DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon will benefit, along with more run-friendly game scripts for Alfred Morris. We're open to a bounce back by Griffin, but we'll need to see it to believe it.

  Redskins | Alfred Morris has played consistently    Wed Jul 8, 06:14 PM

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris has rushed for at least 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns in each of his first three seasons. On average, Morris has rushed for 1,320.6 yards and 9.3 touchdowns.

Footballguys view: Morris's year-end numbers are somewhat consistent, but game to game is rough because of his lack of involvement in the passing game and Washington falling on hard times as a team. He's just a boom/bust RB2 with less appeal in PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Andre Roberts will be in the slot    Wed Jul 8, 12:56 PM

Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts will enter training camp as the slot receiver as well as the primary backup to both wide receiver spots.

Footballguys view: Roberts only has value in leagues that award points for return yards, as he contributes there, too. If Pierre Garcon or DeSean Jackson go down, Roberts might merit a look in very deep leagues, but the Washington pass offense is no place to look for sleepers.

  Redskins | DeAngelo Hall facing challenge    Sat Jul 4, 06:30 PM

Washington Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall (Achilles') had his participation limited in optional workouts in May and June, as he continues to work his way back from a torn Achilles' tendon. Hall's $4 million base salary for 2015 only becomes guaranteed if he makes the 53-man roster.

  Redskins | Ryan Kerrigan doing well    Thu Jul 2, 01:29 PM

Washington Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan (knee) said his rehab from knee surgery is going well and that he has been able to start running. Kerrigan said he is focused on building strength in the surgically repaired knee.

Footballguys view: Kerrigan has become the leader of the Washington pass rush, and with Brian Orakpo gone to Tennessee, he'll be even more important for them this year. He's an LB2 in sack-heavy/big play IDP leagues with enough activity to be relevant in deeper balanced leagues too.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson owns NFC East    Wed Jul 1, 08:59 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson caught nine passes for 243 yards and a score in two games against the Philadelphia Eagles last season, continuing a trend of big performances against NFC East opponents. 'I'm called a Cowboy killer,' Jackson said. 'They call me the Cowboy killer. I'm a Giants killer, I'm a Cowboys killer, now I'm an Eagles killer, too.'

Footballguys view: Jackson has remained a threat to be a top 10 WR play in any given despite the Washington QB and overall offense problems. He's a boom/bust high WR3 this year who could pay off if Robert Griffin III gets straightened out.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin critiqued    Wed Jul 1, 03:29 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's decision-making, fundamentals, footwork and his inability to find open receivers are all reasons why Griffin isn't good enough to be successful in the NFL, in the opinion of ESPN NFL analyst Mark Brunell.

Footballguys view: The franchise seems reluctant but resigned to starting Griffin to begin the season, and well, we'll see where it goes from there. He doesn't seem to have the support of head coach Jay Gruden, and only the repeated failures of once coveted backup Kirk Cousins has kept Griffin atop the depth chart. Colt McCoy could be the caretaker for this offense again yet. All of it adds up to every Washington fantasy option inspiring little enthusiasm at current ADP.

  Redskins | Pierre Garcon may have bigger role    Wed Jun 24, 02:13 PM

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon could be featured more often in the passing game this season based on the offseason workouts. Garcon often lined up to the right of the quarterback during the workouts even though he has been used mostly on the left side. Head coach Jay Gruden said he was impressed with Garcon's work this offseason.

Footballguys view: As a "Z" receiver, Garcon will be lined up off the ball. This helps him get into his routes quicker, and it also sets him up for a quick WR screen if the DB covering him is playing off. Garcon could outplay his current ADP of WR43 (9.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Washington | Griffin 'excellent every day'    Mon Jun 22, 09:16 PM

Zac Boyer, from the Washington Times, reports that quarterback Robert Griffin III has been impressing his head coach Jay Gruden this offseason. "I think the transition for him into a new system last season was a little bit rocky for all of us," Gruden said. "But when you have the same system going in for year two, I think he's going to get better. You can see the progress every day that he makes, and it's exciting to watch. It really is, with all three quarterbacks, actually. Robert, especially, is doing an excellent job every day. He's not perfect, nobody is. I'm not perfect. But he's really striving to be perfect, and he's doing a great job of working."

Footballguys view: The good news keeping coming out about Griffin's progress this offseason. We'll see if he can continue looking good when the pads come on in training camp. Griffin needs to make quicker decisions in the pocket, and he needs to be safer when scrambling so he can stay healthy this season and get his career back on track.

  Washington | Backup QB battle will last through preseason    Mon Jun 22, 09:07 PM

Mike Jones, from the Washington Post, reports the battle for Washington's backup quarterback should last through training camp and the preseason. Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy have been rotating backup reps this offseason.

Footballguys view: Starter Robert Griffin III is in a make-or-break season in Washington. He needs to stay healthy and impress as the starter if he wants to stick as the team's top quarterback. If he gets banged up again, then we'll see one of these backups. McCoy has looked better than Cousins, but he'll have to continue proving himself in the preseason.

  Washington | Rookie Jones the third-down RB    Sun Jun 21, 08:30 PM

John Keim, from ESPN.com, believes that rookie running back Matt Jones will carve out a role as the team's third-down back. He reports that Alfred Morris could have about the same percentage of the carries (65 percent) as he always has had with Washington. He projects Jones to only get a few carries a game provided that Morris is running well.

Footballguys view: The Matt Jones hype train was out of control earlier this year. The guy is a poor man's version of BenJarvus Green-Ellis, yet some in the fantasy community felt he could be the next John Riggins. When Jones was selected in the third round of the 2015 NFL draft, some speculated that Morris was on shaky ground. That doesn't seem to be the case now. Jones is the backup, Morris is the starter--and his role could be pretty much what it always has been with Washington.

  Redskins | Washington backup QB job up for grabs    Fri Jun 19, 12:06 AM

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy and QB Kirk Cousins have created no separation from each other in their battle to be the primary backup quarterback in 2015, and head coach Jay Gruden said their performance in the preseason games could be the deciding factor.

Footballguys view: McCoy isn't going to go down without a fight. It's a good problem for Washington to have, and a battle for dynasty owners to monitor in training camp.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin feeling better    Thu Jun 18, 06:27 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III said he's feeling better than he's felt in a while. 'I just think we're all feeling better about what we're doing,' Griffin said. 'We know a lot more than last year. And for me as a player, you always have to be confident. Sometimes you have to throw a little swag on it.'

Footballguys view: We're hopeful that Griffin can get his pro career back on track this season. Griffin has ability, but he needs to stay healthy and learn how to hook slide when necessary. He's a bit of an odd fit for Jay Gruden's system, but we'll see if they can make it work in 2015. Right now, fantasy owners are taking Griffin as QB24 (14.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | RG3 making progress    Tue Jun 16, 09:09 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III has been impressing head coach Jay Gruden this offseason. 'The more he plays, the more success he has, the more confidence he's going to build up as a player and the more confident this whole offense is going to be with him under center,' Gruden said of Griffin. 'That comes with time. I don't think anybody lacks confidence with him at quarterback. I think the transition for him into a new season last season was a little bit rocky for all of us. When you have the same system going in for Year 2, I think he's going to get better,' said Gruden.

Footballguys view: Good news for Griffin here. This is a make-or-break year for Griffin as he needs to stay healthy and produce if he wants to stick as Washington's franchise quarterback. We'll see if he can do just that in 2015.

  Redskins | Hutson Mason waived    Tue Jun 9, 04:48 PM

Washington Redsksins QB Hutson Mason was waived Tuesday, June 9.

Footballguys view: Mason has below average arm strength for the NFL. Perhaps he could latch on with another team, but he only has the upside of a camp arm.


  Redskins | Pierre Garcon to be more involved    Mon Jun 8, 05:39 PM

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon is being incorporated more into Washington's offense this year, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Garcon has been playing the 'Z' receiver instead of his normal 'X' receiver spot at recent OTAs. Washington needs to change things up for Garcon after he produced at a disappointing level in 2014. Garcon was number one in the NFL in 2013 with 113 receptions, but that total dropped to only 68 in 2014. He was the 13th-best fantasy receiver in 2013, but he was ranked 55th last season as his stats plummeted. We'll see if he can be a value play this year as most fantasy owners are taking Garcon off the board as a WR4 in PPR leagues.

Pierre Garcon player page


  Redskins | Pierre Garcon switches sides    Thu Jun 4, 10:00 AM

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon ran routes as the 'Z' receiver instead of the 'X' receiver Wednesday, June 3. This means Garcon lines up split out on the right instead of the left. WR DeSean Jackson was the 'X' receiver, and WRs Andre Roberts and Jamison Crowder rotated as the slot receiver.

Footballguys view: Clearly Washington is trying to take advantage of having two great receivers and looking to spread the defense out on occasion. If Crowder or Roberts (or better yet, both) can be effective out of the slot, the defense is going to have to throw a lot of single coverage at the offense. That plays into Jackson and Garcon's hands. Currently, Jackson is the guy people are targeting in early drafts, with an ADP of 5.11, while Garcon has slide down to an ADP of 10.06. Both look like they could be decent options as a WR3 and WR4 respectively.

Washington Redskins OT Trent Williams (ankle) will be out until training camp due to a torn ligament in his ankle. Williams saw Dr. Anderson in Charlotte and was cleared for training camp.

Footballguys view: Williams just got the ankle cleaned up a bit after feeling discomfort earlier this year in workouts. He's dropped 20 pounds this offseason, and that should help him move better in 2015. Williams can still be a dominant left tackle when healthy.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin's option was obvious choice    Tue Jun 2, 02:22 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's fifth-year option being picked up was the obvious decision, according to team president Bruce Allen. 'We know his talent. It really was a no-brainer,' Allen said. 'I think if you asked us six months before it would have been the same decision.'

Footballguys view: Griffin's option of $16.1 million is only guaranteed if he suffers an injury this year that bleeds into 2016. He's in a make-or-break season this year, and he may not have much time to prove himself. If Griffin doesn't look good as the starter, the team has incentive (not getting him hurt to lock in that 2016 money) to get him off the field. We'll see if he can stay healthy and start to become the quarterback we all thought he could be after his rookie season in 2012.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson absence not a big deal    Mon Jun 1, 03:56 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson's absence from organized team activities (OTAs) last week isn't too big of an issue, according to team president Bruce Allen. Jackson is expected to participate in OTAs this week.

Footballguys view: When workouts become mandatory, then perhaps a Jackson absence would be a bigger issue. The team isn't worried about it at this time, and that means fantasy owners should not be concerned either.

  Redskins | Alfred Morris the guy, likes the offense    Wed May 27, 11:15 AM

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris has been declared the feature back by Redskins head coach Jay Gruden. Washington added third-round draft pick RB Matt Jones, which fueled speculation about Morris' job security. Gruden said Jones adds depth and that it is important to have several capable running backs.

Footballguys view: It seems like a few times a week since the draft, we've seen a positive story about Jones. The rookie is a big back with a bruising style, but Morris is still the main man for Washington. The team is going to use a power-running system, which goes away from what Morris performed best in (zone blocking) during the last few years. However, in college at FAU Morris was a standout in the power-blocking system and should have no problem making the adjustment.

Footballguys view: Reed is getting checked for knee soreness, and there's no word on the severity at this time. A talented player, Reed's pro career has been set back by injuries over the last two years. His current ADP is TE20 (13.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin III regressing    Sat May 23, 06:25 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III can't blame his regression on injuries, according to head coach Mike Shanahan. 'I don't think getting hurt has anything to do with it,' Shanahan told WJFK in Washington Friday. May 22. 'I think what you do is you rehab yourself and you get better. ... You don't have to have great running ability to run the read-option. You have to be able to know when to slide, when to throw the football away, depending on if you're running or passing,' said Shanahan.

Footballguys view: Things didn't end well for Shanahan in Washington. We feel Griffin is worthy of one more season at the top spot. This is a make-or-break season for him, and he needs to be more consistent, stay healthy and make better/quicker decisions as a passer.

  Redskins | Ryan Kerrigan has surgery    Wed May 20, 05:13 PM

Washington Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan (knee) has undergone arthroscopic knee surgery and will miss some of the organized team activities, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We think Kerrigan will miss most of the OTAs as Washington prepares for 2015. He's in extension talks with Washington, and this knee scope could impact those negotiations. However, we think Kerrigan should be ready in time for training camp.

  Redskins | Alfred Morris auditioning for new team?    Wed May 20, 12:03 PM

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris enters the final year of his current deal, according to Spotrac.com. The Redskins selected RB Matt Jones in the third round of the NFL draft, which could signal an impending departure of Morris in 2016.

Footballguys view: Everyone seems to be high on Jones at this time, but we'll have to see the rookie wait for his turn this year as Morris is still the top back for Washington. Morris has been a rock-solid starter for Washington over the past few years. A sixth-round pick out of FAU in 2012, Morris has 3,955 rushing yards so far in his pro career. His numbers were slightly down in 2014, but Morris is still a decent RB2 for fantasy owners. Morris has a current ADP of RB14 (3.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.
