  Redskins | Bashaud Breeland leaves game    Sun Sep 25, 12:53 PM

Washington Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland (leg) suffered a lower leg injury in Week 3 and is considered questionable to return.

Footballguys view: Josh Norman is following Odell Beckham, so Washington's pass defense will have trouble with Sterling Shepard and Victor Cruz if Breeland is out.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson out Sunday    Sun Sep 25, 11:50 AM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') has been declared inactive for Week 3's game against the New York Giants.

Footballguys view: Perhaps Doctson's improving achilles issue has taken a turn for the worse. He was heavily involved in the red zone last week, so his absence might lead to more opportunities for Jordan Reed and Pierre Garcon around the goal line.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson not on injury report    Fri Sep 23, 04:13 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle, knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Jackson's status seemed shakier early in the week, but he should be ready for the matchup against the resurgent Giants defense. He's a boom/bust WR3/Flex because he is sharing targets with a lot of other viable receivers and Kirk Cousins is still struggling to get the efficiency level he was at in the second half of 2015.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson questionable again    Fri Sep 23, 04:08 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Doctson should go, but only in a limited set of snaps, including in the red zone. He's not worth starting yet, but Doctson is a good high ceiling bench stash whose role should grow as the season goes on.

  Redskins | Matt Jones a full participant     Thu Sep 22, 04:22 PM

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Footballguys view: Washington needs to use Jones more, especially in the red zone. Of 14 red zone plays, 11 were passes and they didn't work often enough. We're not sure if coach Jay Gruden will bend though, and so we have Jones as an RB4. He may be effective, but he's not getting the carries for it to matter.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson limited Thursday    Thu Sep 22, 04:14 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Footballguys view: Doctson saw some fade-pass end zone attempts last week but Kirk Cousins was too busy regressing to make those work. We don't like this match against the New York Giants this week and see him as no more than a WR6, and a hail mary play in the hopes that a fade route works this week.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson limited    Thu Sep 22, 03:18 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle, knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Footballguys view: Right now we have him penciled in as a WR5 against the New York Giants. Kirk Cousins is a hot mess, and that impacts everyone here, and the injury is icing on the cake.

  Redskins | Matt Jones takes part in practice    Wed Sep 21, 03:39 PM

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: Jones should be considered a RB3 against the Giants in Week 3. Fantasy owners with the bench space should consider adding Rob Kelley.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson targeted plenty in red zone    Tue Sep 20, 04:04 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson received three targets in the red zone during the Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Sept. 18.

Footballguys view: Doctson's three targets in the red zone ranked first in the NFL last year (tied with seven other players). The rookie is used to being a TD machine and should continue to get plenty of looks near pay-dirt. Doctson's emergence should lean fantasy owners towards moving on from Pierre Garcon.

  Redskins | Jay Gruden standing behind Kirk Cousins    Tue Sep 20, 12:46 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins still has the 'total faith' of head coach Jay Gruden despite a rough beginning to the season. Cousins ranks third in the league in passing yards (693), but he has only one touchdown versus three interceptions, contributing to Washington's 0-2 start.

Footballguys view: Cousins certainly isn't enjoying the success he had last year in his breakout season. It's still early, and there's plenty of time to turn things around. Cousins needs to be better in the red zone. In two games, Cousins is 5-for-17 for 34 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in the red zone. Last season, he was 50-for-78 for 345 yards, 22 touchdowns and no interceptions in the red zone.

  Redskins | Teammates unhappy with Kirk Cousins?    Mon Sep 19, 01:48 AM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 28 of his 46 pass attempts for 364 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys. He also ran twice for 20 yards. After a pair of losses at home, a source with knowledge of the situation said multiple offensive players have begun to complain about Cousins, pointing to a lack of decisiveness, erratic play and confusion.

Footballguys view: They don't like that! There is frustration mounting within the Washington locker room, but winning cures everything. Last year's Cinderella story needs to play better -- win -- to get back into the good graces of his teammates.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson questionable    Fri Sep 16, 06:15 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 16, but is listed as questionable for Week 2.

Footballguys view: Doctson is only playing limited snaps for Washington, but he could come on as the season progresses. He's an outstanding receiver in the air and should play a role in the red zone as soon as he is ready. Doctson is worth a stash in deeper leagues.

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 15.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson practices Wednesday    Wed Sep 14, 07:06 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Footballguys view: The team is going to work Doctson back into action as he continues to deal with recovering from this Achilles' injury. Doctson ran nine routes against the Steelers on Monday night in Week 1, catching one pass (on one target) for nine yards. As he gets healthier, his workload should increase.

  Redskins | Matt Jones practices in full    Wed Sep 14, 07:01 PM

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Footballguys view: Outside of a Week 2 performance last year against the Rams (123 yards rushing), we've never been wowed by Jones. Consider him a RB3/flex play at home against the Cowboys this week. Make sure to get Chris Thompson or Rob Kelley on your waiver wire if you can.
