  Redskins | Jordan Reed sits out practice Friday    Fri Dec 2, 01:17 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 2.

Footballguys view: Reed is almost certainly out for Sunday despite his big performance playing through the injury on Thanksgiving. Vernon Davis becomes a good waiver wire tight end with Reed out, and Jamison Crowder should continue to get a lot of targets in the slot.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed likely will miss Week 13    Thu Dec 1, 01:17 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (shoulder) is not expected to play in Week 13 because of his shoulder injury, according to sources.

Footballguys view: If Reed is out, then Vernon Davis should continue to get significant targets in his place. We think he will be a decent TE1 play against Arizona this week.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed still having issues    Thu Dec 1, 08:45 AM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (shoulder) said the Grade 3 separation of the AC joint in his left shoulder continues to cause a lot of pain, and he only has 30 percent range of motion. The team is taking a wait-and-see approach on his status for Week 13.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners may not have the luxury to wait and see with Reed. Go ahead and make other plans at the TE position this week. If Reed doesn't play, an even larger role would be there for Vernon Davis.

  Redskins | Jamison Crowder on a roll    Wed Nov 30, 09:30 AM

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder has 24 catches for 334 yards and three touchdowns over the last four games.

Footballguys view: Over the last four games Washington has played (they had a bye in Week 9), Crowder has performed like a borderline WR1 in PPR leagues. Going forward, this trend should continue for the second-year pro. There are many fantasy owners who could start Crowder as a WR3/flex option even though he's got that WR1 upside on a weekly basis.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed not at practice Monday    Mon Nov 28, 12:56 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (shoulder) was absent from practice Monday, Nov. 28.

Footballguys view: Local beat writers report this injury is very painful for Reed. Check back to see if he can practice on Friday -- even in a limited fashion. If Reed can't go, then it bumps the fantasy value of Vernon Davis. If you have Reed on your team, make sure to have other options at the ready.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed has serious shoulder injury    Fri Nov 25, 03:00 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (shoulder) was diagnosed with a Grade 3 AC joint separation in his left shoulder after undergoing an MRI on Friday, Nov. 25. Reed may able to play in Week 13 against the Arizona Cardinals, depending on his range of motion and pain tolerance.

Footballguys view: Reed was huge after returning to the game on Thanksgiving, with a week-winning performance in PPR leagues. He'll be impossible to leave on the bench if he is active.

  Redskins | Tough game for Rob Kelley    Thu Nov 24, 08:38 PM

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley finished with 14 carries for 37 yards and two catches for five yards in a 31-26 loss to the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Nov. 24.

Footballguys view: Kelley was running hard, but there just wasn't much room to run against the Cowboys. It's his lowest rushing total since taking over in Week 8. Expect Kelley to bounce back in the weeks ahead.

  Redskins | Eight grabs for Jamison Crowder    Thu Nov 24, 08:30 PM

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder finished with eight catches on 10 targets for 88 yards in a 31-26 loss to the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Nov. 24.

Footballguys view: Crowder made some incredible plays to move the chains. He was a big part of the reason why Washington was able to move the ball regularly down the field. A touchdown would've been nice, but PPR fantasy owners should be more than happy with this performance.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson hauls in long score    Thu Nov 24, 08:21 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson caught four passes for 118 yards, including a 67-yard touchdown, in a 31-26 loss to the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Nov. 24.

Footballguys view: Jackson's touchdown was on a busted coverage, but it all counts the same for fantasy owners. Now that he's healthy, Jackson is a weekly boom/bust play because of his speed and ability to get on top of a defense. On Thanksgiving he went boom.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins tops 400 yards    Thu Nov 24, 08:15 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 41 of his 53 passes for 449 yards and three touchdowns in a 31-26 loss to the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Nov. 24.

Footballguys view: Cousins was dealing against the Cowboys, and Washington was moving the ball down the field regularly. However, they fell short in the red zone on multiple occasions and couldn't overcome those shortcomings.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson ready to play    Thu Nov 24, 03:39 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 12 game.

Footballguys view: Jackson should put up some good numbers against a beat up Dallas secondary. We see Jackson as a borderline WR2/WR3 and the difference will probably whether he breaks a long pass for a touchdown or not.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins may be tagged again    Thu Nov 24, 12:18 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins may receive the franchise tag again this offseason if the two sides are not able to reach a long-term agreement, according to sources. The Redskins are willing to pay Cousins $24 million for one season if it keeps him off the free-agent market.

Footballguys view: Cousins has proven himself to be a worthy starter and Washington should be looking to lock him down long-term. The tag could be just to buy them time to find a happy medium between his asking price and what they want to pay him. He'll have another spotlight opportunity on Thanksgiving against Dallas. We have him as a top five option this week.

Footballguys view: We like Crowder as a WR3/flex play for fantasy owners in Week 12. His quickness should come into play against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.
