From the upgrade/downgrade report (Tue Oct 17): The teams says they want to expand Doctson's role going forward. He has the ability to put up a good week on one play, and if Terrelle Pryor or Jamison Crowder cede more snaps to him, he could have a second half fantasy impact.

General News (Tue Oct 17): is expected to see more playing time going forward, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Doctson has only played about 20 snaps per game.

Week 7: at Philadelphia Eagles

All WR vs PHI

FBG says: Good matchup. The Redskins rebounded nicely after a slow start this season as Kirk Cousins threw for 330 yards against the 49ers last week. Prior to this game, the team was averaging just 231 yards per game. The biggest issue for the Redskins has been the inconsistency in the wide receiver play Terrelle Pryor and Jamison Crowder have both been extremely disappointing so far this season. Last week, the Redskins went more with a two tight end set trying to get Vernon Davis involved in the offense as he a big play threat on this team as he has two consecutive weeks with 50+ yard plays and has seen his snap count continue to increase each week. Earlier this season when these two teams played, Cousins threw for 240 yards a touchdown and an interception. The Eagles this season have really struggled against the pass as they are allowing 273.5 yards per game which is currently the fourth most in the NFL. There are two main reasons why this team is struggling statistically against the pass. The first is the schedule. The Eagles have faced the Kirk Cousins, Alex Smith, Eli Manning, Phillip Rivers, Carson Palmer and Cam Newton this season. In terms of passing offenses faced, this is the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 11th, 12th, and 19th passing offenses so far this season. Patrick Robinson has been a great cornerback so far this season on the outside, but former 7th round draft pick Jalen Mills and third-round rookie Rasul Douglas have both been two liabilities in the secondary so far this year.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 6 vs SF (3 / 1 / 11 / 1 rec)

Josh Doctson lone reception came on a red zone touchdown in the first quarter. Kirk is continuing to build trust in Josh as he steadily tries to find him for scoring opportunities. Once Josh proves he can stay healthy and on the field the targets will rise. Therefore, he should gradually be more involved moving forward. He is still rotating at receiver with Ryan Grant.

2017 Week 4 vs KC (3 / 2 / 27 / 0 rec)

Josh Doctson was on the field more plays this week as they try to ease him back into the offense. He recorded just two catches but his potential biggest play went incomplete. Kirk went to him at the end of the game on third down for a touchdown but he couldn't hold onto the pass. He initially caught it at the high point but when he hit the ground he couldn't complete the catch. Kirk recognizes his ability to beat man coverage and going to him with the game on the line shows that. He will have more opportunities and his role will continue to grow in Washington's offense.

2017 Week 3 vs OAK (2 / 1 / 52 / 1 rec)

Josh Doctson finally made his presence felt today as he scored a touchdown on his lone reception. It was the most spectacular play of the night as he went up to high point a catch down the sideline that could have easily been intercepted. If he can stay healthy he can be a game changer in the Washington offense. His catch radius and athleticism is severely needed for an offense that can't count on Jordan Reed to be available on a weekly basis.

2017 Week 1 vs PHI (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Josh Doctson did not record a catch as he continues to work his way back to full strength.

Redskins | Josh Doctson to play bigger role? (Tue Oct 17, 12:06 PM) - Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson is expected to see more playing time going forward, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Our View: He's only played about 20 snaps per game, but as he continues to produce we could see Doctson get more of a chance to prove what he can do. He's got two touchdowns over the last three games, but only has four receptions during that time. We might see Doctson targeted more going forward.
