  Redskins | Josh Johnson to start in Week 15    Mon Dec 10, 02:35 AM

Washington Redskins QB Josh Johnson will start in Week 15 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Johnson passed for 195 yards in relief of QB Mark Sanchez on Sunday, Dec. 9.

Footballguys view: Sanchez was awful in his lone start for Washington. Johnson looked much better and the team responded to his play offensively. On the road against Jacksonville in Week 15, Johnson has a tough matchup. Fantasy GMs have much better options at the quarterback position.

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder finished with two catches on seven targets for 87 yards, including a 79-yard touchdown, in a 40-16 loss to the New York Giants in Week 14.

Footballguys view: Crowder's long catch and run score came after the Giants defense seemed to mail it in because they build a big lead. He's still not a good play at Jacksonville next week.

Footballguys view: The Washington offense is flatlining heading into a matchup with Jacksonville. It is impossible to want to rely on any part of this offense in that matchup, including Peterson.

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hip) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 7 and he is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the New York Giants.

Footballguys view: Doctson's value took a huge hit when Colt McCoy went out. Add in a new injury issue and he shouldn't be a consideration in Week 14.

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 7 and he is off the injury report ahead of the Week 14 game against the New York Giants.

Footballguys view: Crowder could have some value in deep PPR leagues. He showed some chemistry with Mark Sanchez on one drive in last week's loss to the Eagles and could be a frequent target against the Giants.

Footballguys view: Johnson is familiar with the Gruden offense having played for teams where both Jon Gruden and Jay Gruden were on he staff. He's a veteran who has played for a ton of teams in the NFL and gives them a depth behind Mark Sanchez.

Updating a previous report, free-agent QB Josh Johnson (Raiders) is the quarterback the Washington Redskins hope to sign.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy has surgery    Tue Dec 4, 03:14 PM

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (fibula) underwent surgery on his fractured right fibula Tuesday, Dec. 4. A four-week recovery period is expected.

Footballguys view: Washington moves forward with Mark Sanchez as their starting quarterback. They'll have to go to the waiver wire to add another quarterback to the room. McCoy is under contract with Washington in 2019 but there's no dead money on his deal (and a $3.5 million cap number) so the team might want to see who else is out there to work as a backup.
