  Redskins | Terrelle Pryor focused on chemistry     Sat May 27, 09:55 PM

Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor said he is spending as much time as possible with QB Kirk Cousins in order to build trust, and head coach Jay Gruden said the relationship between Pryor and Cousins off the field in translating to success on the field.

Footballguys view: The chemistry is a work in progress, but by the time the regular season rolls around we should see them on the same page. Cousins needs to find a new favorite target with DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon leaving in free agency. Pryor is the most likely candidate, and fantasy owners look at him as a WR2. He's going off the board at WR20 (4.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Terrelle Pryor working out the kinks    Sat May 27, 09:22 PM

Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor said the offense was a little sloppy when OTAs began but is improving thanks to a total team effort. 'We're getting better, and we're a long ways away, but I think tomorrow is going to be a brighter day.'

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins upbeat about extension talks    Sat May 27, 06:38 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins recently characterized his talks about a contract extension as 'really positive' and appears content with whatever happens leading up to the July 15 league deadline for franchise-tagged players to hammer out a long-term deal, according to the Washington Post's Liz Clarke.

Footballguys view: Cousins has had the franchise tag each of the last two years. Washington needs to sign him to an extension or risk losing him on the open market in 2018. A team like the 49ers would likely be willing to pay Cousins the $20 million annually he'll command in free agency.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins working on timing    Sat May 27, 12:11 AM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is still adjusting to throwing jumps ball and back-shoulder fades to WR Terrelle Pryor, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: It will only take some time for Cousins to get used to his new target. DeSean Jackson (Buccaneers) and Pierre Garcon (49ers) left in free agency, so it will likely be Pryor playing as his top WR option in 2017. Pryor has a current ADP of WR20 (4.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson impressing    Thu May 25, 11:38 AM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') has been impressive in organized team activities, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'The big thing for him is the confidence in his Achilles', and I think he's got that right now,' Gruden said. 'The past two days he's looked better and better. It looks like he can run down the field. He made a good catch down the sideline today and (he has) strong hands, we know that about him.'

Footballguys view: Doctson had tweeted out he was close to 100 percent back in March, so this is continued good news. A lot of folks thought he was the best receiver in the 2016 NFL Draft, but his Achilles injury hurt his draft stock. With DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon gone, Doctson only has Terrelle Pryor to jump over for a significant amount of targets. He'll start behind Jordan Reed and Jamison Crowder in terms of target distribution, but that can change with a solid preseason.

  Redskins | Matt Jones won't attend OTAs    Wed May 24, 09:18 AM

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones won't attend organized team activities, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Not really a surprise here. Jones was a healthy scratch for all but seven games last year and the team has moved on with guys like Rob Kelley and rookie Samaje Perine. Add in Chris Thompson as a change-of-pace back and you can see how there's no room for Jones. He'll be traded or released and try to latch on with another team in the NFL.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins could be tagged again    Tue May 23, 10:32 AM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins could receive a third consecutive franchise tag next offseason, according to team president Bruce Allen. The cost of a third straight franchise tag would be $34 million in 2018.

Footballguys view: We'd be shocked if that was the case, but this is the NFL and anything can happen. Cousins has been tagged each of the last two years, and Washington isn't committing to him long term. If he hits the open market, we'd expect the 49ers to make a strong push for him in 2018.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson will not be limited    Mon May 22, 07:35 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') will be a full participant during organized team activities this week, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Washington needs Doctson in their starting lineup after losing both Pierre Garcon (49ers) and DeSean Jackson (Buccaneers) in free agency. If healthy, Doctson should start opposite Terrelle Pryor in 2017.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson expects bigger role    Mon May 22, 09:00 AM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson is expecting a bigger workload this season because he proved to head coach Jay Gruden that he was durable.

Footballguys view: Thompson shouldn't get too excited. Washington already has Robert Kelley and rookie Samaje Perine as the lead backs on the depth chart. Those two are going to eat up most of the touches/snaps in the backfield..but mostly on rushing downs. When it comes to being the primary third-down or pass-catching back, that is all Thompson's gig.

  Redskins | WAS not moving linebackers to defensive end    Sun May 21, 10:34 AM

The Washington Redskins are not expected to move any of their outside linebackers to defensive end, despite the logjam of players at the position created by the selection of LB Ryan Anderson in the second round of the draft.

Footballguys view: Washington will figure this out in training camp. Trent Murphy is suspended the first four games of the year due to a PED violation, so Anderson and company should see plenty of time in a rotation at pass rushing linebacker.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson finally healthy    Fri May 19, 09:48 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') has looked 'quick and healthy' in offseason activities, according to JP Finlay of CSNMidAtlantic.com

Footballguys view: After losing both DeSean Jackson (Buccaneers) and Pierre Garcon (49ers) in free agency, Washington needs Doctson to be healthy, available and productive in 2017. Doctson should work as the no.2 WR opposite free agent addition Terrelle Pryor with Jamison Crowder working out of the slot.

  Redskins | Rob Kelley in shape    Wed May 17, 08:57 AM

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley is in shape and ready for the season, according to sources.

Footballguys view: That's good news for Kelley as he's likely to be pushed -- hard -- by rookie Samaje Perine (Oklahoma). Washington selected Perine in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL draft, and he's one of our favorite big RBs from this class. This is going to be a camp battle fantasy owners have to monitor closely during the preseason.

  Redskins | Maurice Harris has potential    Wed May 17, 08:56 AM

Washington Redskins WR Maurice Harris has enamored the coaches, who are very high on his potential.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Cal in 2016, Harris did see the field a bit as a rookie. He played 113 snaps, was targeted 10 times and finished the year with eight catches for 66 yards. Even though they lost both DeSean Jackson (Buccaneers) and Pierre Garcon (49ers) in free agency, Washington is jam packed at the WR position. Harris has been impressing coaches, and he'll need to continue doing that if he wants to make the 53-man roster again in 2017. Fantasy owners in super deep dynasty leagues should be monitoring his progress.

  Redskins | DeAngelo Hall might start season on PUP list    Tue May 16, 03:28 PM

Washington Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall (knee) could begin the 2017 season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Hall is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

  Redskins | No return date yet for DeAngelo Hall    Tue May 16, 02:25 PM

Washington Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall (knee) does not have a target date for his return as he continues to recover from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Footballguys view: With a $5.1 million cap number...and with no timetable for his return...Hall could be asked to take a pay cut in 2017. Hall has missed 31 of his last 48 games due to a litany of injuries.

  Redskins | Junior Galette making progress    Tue May 16, 02:19 PM

Washington Redskins LB Junior Galette (Achilles') has begun running and lifting, but he is expected to be held out of team drills until training camp, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Ultimately, when Galette returns will be up to Galette and the team trainers.

Footballguys view: If Washington can get anything out of Galette this year they should consider it a bonus. He's missed the last two seasons fully due to Achilles' problems and may never be the player he used to be. We should get an update on his status around the start of training camp.

  Redskins | Several moves made by Redskins    Mon May 15, 04:31 PM

Free-agent TE Manasseh Garner (Bills) and undrafted free-agent CB Tevin Homer were signed by the Washington Redskins Monday, May 15. In addition, LB Khairi Fortt and TE Wes Saxton were waived, while CB Tharold Simon was released.

Footballguys view: Garner has bounced around to a few teams during his short pro career. He's mostly a blocker or H-back type of tight end and shouldn't make much of a fantasy impact if he somehow/someway makes the 53-man roster in Washington.

  Redskins | Samaje Perine impresses coaches    Sat May 13, 11:13 PM

Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine drew praise from running backs coach Randy Jordan for his quickness and elusiveness during rookie minicamp, and head coach Jay Gruden praised Perine's technique. 'You can tell his pad level is always down and he had good vision and he has good feet in the hole, and he caught the ball well,' Gruden said.

Footballguys view: We're excited about Perine's skill set at the pro level...mainly because we've seen it before in former Falcons stud Michael Turner. Going to Washington isn't a great landing spot for Perine as he'll have to compete for touches with Rob Kelley. The rookie from Oklahoma is currently going off the board at RB52 (12.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Rob Kelley expected to remain lead back    Fri May 12, 12:10 PM

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley has reportedly impressed team with his work in the offseason, and he will likely remain the starter ahead of fourth-round RB Samaje Perine for the time being, according to CSN Mid-Atlantic's J.P. Finlay.

Footballguys view: Washington added more power to the backfield with the addition of Perine. Kelley should be the lead back at the start of the season, but Perine could be worked in more as the season goes on. Perine can be a hammer to close out games when Washington has the lead.

  Redskins | Jamison Crowder set for increased role    Fri May 5, 12:32 PM

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder should exceed 1,000 yards receiving for the first time in his career in 2017, according to CSN Mid-Atlantic's JP Finlay.

Footballguys view: With DeSean Jackson (Buccaneers) and Pierre Garcon (49ers) moving on in free agency, Crowder is the player with the most established chemistry with QB Kirk Cousins in the WR corps. That chemistry could get him even more work in 2017 even though he'll be splitting targets with WRs Terrelle Pryor and Josh Doctson (plus TE Jordan Reed). Crowder has a current ADP of WR33 (7.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Samaje Perine will challenge Rob Kelley    Mon May 1, 05:05 PM

Washington Redskins rookie RB Samaje Perine is expected to challenge fellow RB Rob Kelley for early-down work, according to ESPN.com's John Keim. Head coach Jay Gruden lauded Perine for his toughness and physical abilities. 'We know how strong he is,' Gruden said. 'Just a total package is really what we liked.'

Footballguys view: Perine reminds us of former Falcons RB Michael Turner because of his compact build and lower body power. Both are bangers who make their living between the tackles. The addition of Perine is bad for Kelley...even if he wins the early down job. Washington could end up using a rotation of both. Stay tuned.

  Redskins | Washington drafts Samaje Perine    Sat Apr 29, 12:37 PM

The Washington Redskins selected Oklahoma RB Samaje Perine with the No. 114 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Saturday, April 29.

Footballguys view: Perine reminds us of former Falcons RB Michael Tuner because of his low center of gravity and power between the tackles. The rookie steps into a situation where he'll be competing with Rob Kelley for touches in the backfield.


  Redskins | Fabian Moreau headed to Washington    Fri Apr 28, 10:26 PM

The Washington Redskins selected CB Fabian Moreau with the 81st pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.

Footballguys view: A former running back, Moreau is only beginning to reach his potential. He could have gone higher but for a torn pectoral at his pro day, and his athleticism and strength will make him a tough matchup in Washington.


  Redskins | Ryan Anderson selected by Redskins    Fri Apr 28, 08:37 PM

The Washington Redskins selected Alabama LB Ryan Anderson with the No. 49 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.

Footballguys view: Anderson is a great edge rusher with tremendous explosion and can play the run as well. Rush or pass play he can get after the ball.


  Redskins | Matt Jones on the market    Fri Apr 28, 08:59 AM

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones is being shopped by the team, according to sources. The Redskins are likely to add another running back in the NFL draft.

Footballguys view: We'll see if they grab one in round two, which would really put the pressure on them to move on from Jones. We liked what we saw from Jones his first year but 2016 was a disappointment, and Washington must have been as frustrated as Jones' fantasy owners were. Likely they regret moving on from Alfred Morris at least a little bit.

  Redskins | Washington selects Jonathan Allen    Thu Apr 27, 10:16 PM

The Washington Redskins selected Alabama DE Jonathan Allen with the No. 17 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Thursday, April 27.

Footballguys view: Allen is a great locker room guy and a very good pass rusher both inside and outside. He's not a force as a tackle if he is strictly an interior guy, but he could get there. He's got the size and overall ability to be special. The shoulder must have really concerned teams.

  Redskins | WAS looking to add another RB    Mon Apr 24, 03:57 AM

The Washington Redskins are looking to add another running back via the draft or free agency to complement RBs Chris Thompson and Rob Kelley.

Footballguys view: This is a wide running back class, so plenty of teams will be looking for added depth at the position. Kelley is the team's banger while Thompson is the change-of-pace back. Washington may be in play for an all-purpose back like Kareem Hunt (Toledo) in the mid rounds.
