  Redskins | Roy Helu practices    Thu Dec 18, 03:16 PM

Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: Helu hasn't been worth anything this year and this week won't change that. There is no reason to have him in your lineup during Championship Week.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed practices in full    Thu Dec 18, 03:10 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: Reed, like the rest of the Washington offense, isn't exactly going to produce many points and we see him as a low-end TE1 this week.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy has herniated disk    Thu Dec 18, 01:41 PM

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) is dealing with a bulging disk in his neck and likely would have been sidelined for a few weeks. McCoy has been placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: Well, we knew McCoy was done. Robert Griffin III is under center, and fantasy owners should consider him a QB2 with upside. Given how poor the offense has been and how the Eagles can bring pressure, Griffin could be in for a long weekend.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (personal) is participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 18, after missing practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, because of a personal reason.

Footballguys view: As has been the case with many Washington players, Reed has been disappointing this year. We have him as barely a TE1 this week and in a championship match, we'd look for better options.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson hasn't been at his best    Wed Dec 17, 01:54 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) hasn't been the same the last few weeks while working through his leg injury, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Jackson has almost 1,000 yards receiving and five touchdowns in 13 games this year, despite dealing with injuries. Gruden said Jackson doesn't always force opposing defenses to shift their coverage, but he often times draws the other team's best cornerback.

Footballguys view: Gee, ya think? Jackson had three catches for 15 yards in Week 15 as he continues to deal with this shin injury. He hasn't had a 100-yard game since Week 9, and fantasy owners need to consider Jackson nothing more than a low-end WR3/flex play.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy placed on IR    Tue Dec 16, 02:21 PM

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) was placed on season-ending Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Dec. 16, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: This makes Robert Griffin III the starter for the rest of the year. We actually saw Griffin run the ball more effectively and play with confidence in Week 15.

  Redskins | Jay Gruden's job safe?    Tue Dec 16, 05:49 AM

Although the Washington Redskins haven't confirmed the news, sources have said coach Jay Gruden will be retained as coach for the 2015 season.

Footballguys view: That's the buzz now, but that could change quickly. If Gruden sticks around in Washington it seems like he'd have to smooth things over with Robert Griffin III. It looked like this was going to come down to another "him or me" situation like it did with Mike Shanahan.

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) could be placed on the Reserve/Injured list after he aggravated a neck injury during the team's Week 15 game.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is expected to be the starting quarterback for Week 16, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Griffin can continue building confidence here. Griffin showed more confidence as a passer, and he ran the ball effectively against the Giants in Week 15.

  Redskins | 'Skins starting QB up in air    Mon Dec 15, 12:34 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was 18-for-27 for 236 yards and a touchdown in the team's loss to the New York Giants in Week 15, and head coach Jay Gruden is unsure if Griffin will start again in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Gruden wants to watch film and learn more about QB Colt McCoy's (neck) injury. '(Griffin) is obviously in the mix,' Gruden said. 'He came out here and competed, which I liked. Made some good throws and made some great plays with his legs, but from a consistent standpoint, the production on third downs and the lack of production in the second half (offensively) was concerning. I'll have to check the film to give him a total grade.' McCoy headed for the locker room after the first series of the game.

Washington Redskins OT Trent Williams (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury in Week 15 and is considered questionable to return.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) is 50-50 to play in Week 15, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to make other plans here. If Jackson plays, he could quickly be pulled, limited or re-aggravate the injury. If he plays, just consider him a WR4/flex play in deeper PPR leagues.

So I feel pretty good about his chances, really, a little bit better and obviously better than I did last week for sure,' head coach Jay Gruden said.

Footballguys view: They consider him 50/50 for Week 15. Fantasy owners should have other options at the ready.

  Redskins | RG3 needs to transition to pocket passer    Fri Dec 12, 07:20 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III needs to do a better job working to become more of a pocket passer and improve his decisiveness on the football field. The team is hoping Griffin will buy into the fact that he needs to transition into more of a passer, and ESPN.com's John Keim gets the sense that the 'Skins want him to work less in the weight room and more in the film room. As Griffin has lost explosiveness due to injuries, opposing teams are defending him differently, blitzing him more and forcing him to be more decisive as a pocket passer.

Footballguys view: Griffin has the ability to make throws from the pocket, and he used to have elite bucket accuracy on downfield throws. The injuries have robbed him of being mechanically sound, and that leads to accuracy problems. We'll see if Griffin can return to form and improve in the areas he needs to in order to be an effective starting quarterback in the NFL.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy to start in Week 15    Fri Dec 12, 04:24 PM

McCoy practiced all week and took all of the first-team snaps Friday, Dec. 12.

DE Kedric Golston (back, foot) and DT Chris Baker (chest) both were limited in practice and are questionable. DT Barry Cofield (illness) fully practiced and is probable.

Footballguys view: Will Compton is a good desperation LB option for folks still alive in their IDP leagues as he fills in for Robinson this week.

  Redskins | Questionable status for Colt McCoy    Fri Dec 12, 01:37 PM

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) practiced in full and took all the first-team repetitions Friday, Dec. 12, but he's listed as questionable for Week 15 against the New York Giants. McCoy must first be cleared by a specialist before playing in Week 15.

Footballguys view: Washington is certainly preparing for McCoy to start. It helps the case for Jordan Reed, but hurts Alfred Morris, who would benefit more from the running threat Robert Griffin III would provide.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) is listed as questionable for Week 15 against the New York Giants.

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) is limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: We wouldn't go anywhere near McCoy in the fantasy playoffs, but in fairness we wouldn't touch any Washington quarterback, so it's not just Colt. So in other words, avoid.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson limited    Thu Dec 11, 02:49 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: Jackson continues to be a question mark for this weekend an we still feel he is only 50/50 chance to suit up. At best, we have him as a WR4 despite a nice matchup against a depleted Giants secondary. If he gets a full practice in, we might move him up a little but the offense here is a concern, so it wouldn't be much of a move.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy to start if healthy    Thu Dec 11, 01:34 PM

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) will start in Week 15 if he cleared to play by the doctors, according to head coach Jay Gruden. QB Robert Griffin III likely would start if McCoy is not able to play.

Footballguys view: Gruden seems to be done with Griffin...unless he's forced to play him because of injury. McCoy was tossed around like a rag doll last week, and we'll have to wait until the end of the week to see if he can practice fully.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson does more in practice    Thu Dec 11, 12:11 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) said he did more in practice Thursday, Dec. 11, but he is not where he wants to be yet.

Footballguys view: There's no clarity on whether or not we'll see Jackson this week for Washington. There's no clarity on their starting QB this week either. Make sure to have other plans at wide receiver if you own Jackson. Also, know that Pierre Garcon would have more fantasy value (WR3-ish) if Jackson doesn't play.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson doing solo work    Thu Dec 11, 10:44 AM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) is doing individual drills Thursday, Dec. 11. Head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson will need to run at full speed before he's cleared to play Sunday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: We're still not sure he plays, and if he does how effective he will be. At this point we see him as a high-end WR4 with some upside against a struggling New York Giants secondary.
