  Redskins | Robert Griffin III dinged in exhibition game    Tue Aug 19, 11:07 AM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (thigh) is dealing with a bruised thigh suffered in the preseason game Monday, Aug. 18. Griffin said it is 'nothing to worry about' but that he must improve his sliding. He was hit hard a few times after the end of some scrambles and took a cumbersome attempt at a slide. 'When he gets out of the pocket, he needs to protect himself,' said head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Griffin's involvement in the running game is going to trend down under Jay Gruden, and this won't help matters. The hope is that Gruden's added passing game efficiency and DeSean Jackson's added playmaking ability will compensate for the running game stat losses and keep Griffin among the QB1s.

  Redskins | Stephen Bowen contract details    Tue Aug 19, 05:05 AM

Washington Redskins DE Stephen Bowen agreed to cut his base salary by $2.8 million this season under the terms of his new deal, but Bowen can make $2.05 million of that back through bonuses and incentives. Only a small chunk of that would count against the cap, so Bowen's restructure saves the team $2.3 million.

  Redskins | Alfred Morris to catch 20-25 passes    Thu Aug 14, 11:33 PM

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris could catch between 20-25 passes this season, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Just that small boost could make him a very good RB2, even in PPR leagues. If the Washington offense bounces back at all, Morris will be a terrific value at his current third round ADP.

  Redskins | Leonard Hankerson to PUP?    Thu Aug 14, 06:46 PM

Washington Redskins WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) may be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden added the team may keep WR Santana Moss for the first few weeks of the season while Hankerson would be on the PUP list.

Footballguys view: Hankerson has been useless both as a fantasy and an NFL receiver so far and whether he is on the PUP or on the field he isn't worth anything to your fantasy roster.

  Redskins | One in, one out    Thu Aug 14, 09:08 AM

Washington Redskins FS Phillip Thomas (hamstring) returned to practice Thursday, Aug. 14, while RB Chris Thompson (ankle) remains out.

Footballguys view: Thompson has struggled to stay healthy during both his college and pro career. With the addition of rookie Lache Seastrunk in the 2014 NFL draft, Thompson's spot on the roster is not guaranteed.

  Redskins | Alfred Morris putting extra work in    Wed Aug 13, 01:02 AM

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris has spent the offseason working on his receiving skills, and each day before practice he has worked with running backs coach Randy Jordan throwing passes to him. Jordan has been tutoring Morris on the finer details of route running.

Footballguys view: It's good that Morris is working on this, but Washington have other backs who are better receiving options. A guy like Roy Helu could very well end up catching more passes than Morris this year. This is why Morris has an ADP of RB14 (3.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins outperforming RGIII?    Mon Aug 11, 02:55 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was the best quarterback on the team during the Redskins-Patriots joint practices, according to ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss. Reiss said Cousins had better mechanics, was more decisive with his ball release and ran the offense better than QB Robert Griffin III.

Footballguys view: Judging by the way the Shanaclan pined for Cousins all year, he might be a better practice player than game player. Griffin's lack of "wow factor" early in camp isn't encouraging, but we won't think about moving him down unless he stays in a malaise through the preseason.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson expects to play    Mon Aug 11, 01:03 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) said he believes he will play in the second preseason game. Jackson sat out the first preseason game because of an ankle injury but felt good during practice Monday, Aug. 11.

Footballguys view: We wouldn't worry about Jackson's missed time or injury. If Robert Griffin's head is right and the offensive line is adequate, Jackson should have plenty of long plays this year.

  Redskins | Jason Hatcher could play in third preseason game    Mon Aug 11, 12:31 PM

Washington Redskins DE Jason Hatcher (knee) could play in the team's third preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, giving him one game with the defensive starters. Hatcher is expected to play defensive end in the team's 3-4 front this year, but he'll also move inside when they play nickel packages.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson returns with a bang    Mon Aug 11, 10:41 AM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 11, and has caught three touchdown passes from QB Robert Griffin III.

Footballguys view: Damn son! Jackson is a big-play weapon with the speed to stretch the field. It looks like his ankle injury is not bothering him at all today. Jackson has a current ADP of WR24 (5.05) in 12-team PPR leagues. The biggest issue to Jackson unlocking his value this year is the Washington offensive line giving Griffin time to throw downfield, and Griffin having his confidence restored.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson out 5-6 days    Sun Aug 10, 05:14 PM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ankle) will miss five or six more days of practice, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Thompson needs to get healthy if he wants to make the final roster. He's competing with guys like Roy Helu, Evan Royster and rookie Lache Seastrunk to be the primary backup behind Alfred Morris.

  Redskins | Leonard Hankerson hoping to resume practicing soon    Sun Aug 10, 03:33 PM

Washington Redskins WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) will meet with Dr. James Andrews soon to determine if he's ready to be cleared for practice.

Footballguys view: Hankerson has failed to play up to his potential as a pro. His dynasty value is virtually non-existent at this point. Even if he's at full strength, we're not terribly excited about his upside.
