Doctson tweeted out an indication that he was 100% in late March after achilles issues basically cost him his entire rookie season. Head coach Jay Gruden said that the team will take him slow, build through OTAs, and hope to have him at full speed in training camp.

Summary

Josh Doctson was the 3rd receiver taken in the 2016 NFL draft, but many - Washington personnel executives included - saw him as the top pass catcher in the class. The 6'2", 202-pounder played in a spread offense at TCU but showed off a repertoire of routes and an aggressive attitude at the point of attack. Washington may have intended to feature Doctson immediately, a the expense of either Pierre Garcon or DeSean Jackson, but the rookie suffered an Achilles injury in the preseason and was placed on Injured Reserve after two games. Garcon and Jackson enjoyed bounce-back seasons in Doctson's absence and have left for free agent riches elsewhere. Washington needs Doctson to be the player they envisioned a season ago. With Jamison Crowder and tight end Jordan Reed already established, Doctson has to outplay free agent Terrelle Pryor in the preseason to earn a significant role; at least at the outset. Pryor is hardly a sure thing so fantasy owners should consider this Doctson's battle to lose. If it's clear he'll start the year as the #1 outside threat, Doctson becomes a compelling breakout target in the middle rounds. (May 22)
