Derrius Guice - RBPosted 5/20/19 11:30am ET
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) has reportedly 'made good progress' and is expected to take part fully in training camp, according to comments made by head coach Jay Gruden on Monday, May 20. 'Derrius is coming along very well. We're just trying to make sure that leg - his quad and everything - is full strength before we let him go. That will probably be another thing we'll wait for training camp as well,' Gruden said.
Huddle Up: Guice returns to a much more crowded backfield than the one he left after tearing his ACL last August, as the team has since added Adrian Peterson and Bryce Love to the mix to go along with Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson. The 2018 second-rounder will likely share early-down reps with Peterson if he holds up and could eventually emerge as the starter later in the season if he finds his pre-injury form. Owners should consider him a late-round lottery ticket in fantasy drafts.
Josh Doctson - WRPosted 5/1/19 2:08pm ET
Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson has been informed that his fifth-year option will not be exercised this offseason, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Doctson is coming off a decent 2018 season but has not posted more than 550 yards in any of his three seasons. He likely will be a starting receiver for the Redskins this upcoming season and could be a late-round option in some fantasy leagues.
Bryce Love - RBPosted 4/27/19 9:45am ET
Stanford RB Bryce Love (knee) was drafted by the Washington Redskins with the No. 112 pick of Round 4 in the 2019 NFL Draft on Saturday, April 27.
Huddle Up: Love is coming off of a torn ACL and probably will redshirt in 2019. He joins a crowded and talented backfield, so gamers can sit this one out in this summer's single-year drafts.
Bryce Love - RBPosted 4/27/19 3:12pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Bryce Love (knee) said he is on track with his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and hopes to be on the field at some point during training camp.
Huddle Up: Love could be a candidate for the Physically Unable to Perform list so he can take his time with the recovery. He is behind Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice on the depth chart at this point and may not see a lot of playing time in 2019. He could be a solid option in keeper leagues but probably will be avoided in most standard leagues.
Derrius Guice - RBPosted 4/27/19 4:52pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and could be ready to practice before the start of training camp, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Guice was the starting running back last season before the injury, but his role is uncertain with Adrian Peterson and Bryce Love on the roster. Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation, but he could be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back if he receives a majority of the touches.
Dwayne Haskins - QBPosted 4/25/19 6:53pm ET
Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins was selected by the Washington Redskins with the 15th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Haskins should have a chance to compete with Case Keenum and Colt McCoy for the starting job during training camp, but the Redskins may want him to sit out his rookie season. He should be a popular choice in keeper leagues but can be avoided in standard leagues unless he wins the starting job.
Jamison Crowder - WRPosted 4/1/19 11:24am ET
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder 'has something unique as far as he has an explosiveness after the catch that you don't see (among slot receivers),' according to head coach Adam Gase. In 56 games over four seasons with the Washington Redskins, Crowder had 34 receptions of at least 20 yards and six of at least 40. 'A lot of slot players, historically, have not been guys that are threats down the field. He's actually a threat down the field, but at the same time, he can catch it and create, which is going to be interesting for us. We've never had a guy that really can juice it up like he can,' Gase said.
Huddle Up: It's interesting Gase decided to use the term "juice" (Jarvis Landry's nickname) when talking about slot receivers he has coached. Beyond that, Crowder is very much a player that seems to have flown under the radar during free agency this spring. Wes Welker, Landry and Danny Amendola have all enjoyed varying levels of success in Gase's offense, and it's not a stretch to say Crowder is the most explosive of the bunch. He should be viewed as a WR3 with WR2 upside in 2019.
Jamison Crowder - WRPosted 3/24/19 7:59pm ET
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder said he is excited to play in head coach Adam Gase's offense because of how it utilizes slot receivers.
Huddle Up: Crowder's 2018 season was marred by an ankle injury, but if he stays healthy, he could become a dependable target for Sam Darnold. Crowder is worth a look as a WR4 in PPR formats.
Adrian Peterson - RBPosted 3/23/19 8:06pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson called his 2018 season 'decent' and believes he is capable of more in 2019.
Huddle Up: Peterson rushed for 1,042 yards last year, but with Derrius Guice expected to be fully recovered from a knee injury, Peterson looks like more of a handcuff than a fantasy starter.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 3/21/19 6:25pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) has been working out with teammates this offseason, according to RB Adrian Peterson.
Huddle Up: Reed managed to play in 13 games last season, but it didn't translate into much production on the field. Between constant health issues and slipping per-game numbers, Reed is no more than a late-round lottery ticket heading into 2019.
Adrian Peterson - RBPosted 3/18/19 12:18pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson was officially re-signed to his two-year contract Monday, March 13. It was originally reported that the deal is worth $8 million.
Huddle Up: Peterson's return doesn't bode well for the fantasy ceiling of Derrius Guice, but Guice is still the running back to own from Washington. He has RB2 upside with less value in PPR leagues, while Peterson makes for a late-round handcuff.
Adrian Peterson - RBPosted 3/13/19 11:56am ET
Washington Redskins impending free-agent RB Adrian Peterson is re-signing to a two-year deal Wednesday, March 13. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Peterson was a pleasant surprise last year, but he won't have much work with Derrius Guice and Chris Thompson healthy. He'll be more of a short-yardage and goal-lineback who only carries flex appeal.
Jamison Crowder - WRPosted 3/11/19 1:18pm ET
Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Jamison Crowder is close to reaching an agreement with the New York Jets, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Provided this holds up, Crowder could be a sneaky buy in the second half of fantasy drafts, particularly around the fourth quadrant. He's capable but has struggled with injuries and is a PPR-only consideration in deep leagues -- think WR4 territory with upside.
Adrian Peterson - RBPosted 3/8/19 4:52pm ET
Washington Redskins impending free-agent RB Adrian Peterson could receive some interest from the Chicago Bears if he does not re-sign with the Redskins, in the opinion of NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.
Huddle Up: The Bears may look for a starting running back if they decide to trade Jordan Howard, so Peterson could be an option to pair with Tarik Cohen. Peterson is coming off a terrific 2018 season and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in standard leagues depending on his situation.
Derrius Guice - RBPosted 3/7/19 7:39pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) 'doesn't have to come off the field on third down,' according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Assuming he is fully recovered from knee surgery by the start of the year, Guice could be positioned for a heavy workload in the Washington backfield and RB2 production in 2019.
Derrius Guice - RBPosted 2/18/19 6:25pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is able to sprint in a straight line but is still not able to do any lateral movements at full speed yet. He also wants to build the strength in his legs over the next few months.
Huddle Up: Guice was the team's starting running back last season but missed most of the season because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He may have to share playing time with Adrian Peterson in 2019 if Peterson re-signs with the team. Guice can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy back if he receives most of the playing time.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 2/17/19 3:34pm ET
Washington Redskins senior vice president of football operations Doug Williams said QB Alex Smith (leg) hopefully will be able to play at some point in 2019.
Huddle Up: Smith suffered a serious leg injury and there is still not definite timetable for his return. The Redskins likely will add at least one more quarterback this season, but owners in all fantasy leagues probably should avoid the Redskins quarterback situation next season.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 2/12/19 12:14pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) is not expected to play this season, in the opinion of RB Chris Thompson. 'We know and understand that it's probably not going to happen that we have him this year,' Thompson admitted. The Redskins have discussed a new deal with QB Josh Johnson, but QB Colt McCoy is slated to start the year if Smith can't go. Smith is in the midst of a an extensive recovery from a severe compound leg fracture late in the season.
Huddle Up: Honestly, Smith was the best fantasy option among Washington quarterbacks, although Johnson is capable of being fantasy relevant. Still, if you draft a Redskins quarterback this year, draft him as your backup.
Adrian Peterson - RBPosted 2/7/19 5:35pm ET
Washington Redskins impending free-agent RB Adrian Peterson said his representatives have been trading numbers with the Redskins in hopes of finding a contract offer that can work for both sides.
Huddle Up: It looks like Peterson probably will be returning to the Redskins next season, but he likely will have to share playing time with Derrius Guice. Peterson could be a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in fantasy leagues depending on his role.
Derrius Guice - RBPosted 2/7/19 6:50pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) has progressed to the point that he is able to sprint at full speed.
Huddle Up: Unless he suffers an unexpected setback, Guice should be ready for the start of the 2019 season. He should have a chance to lead the backfield sooner rather than later, and RB2 production isn't out of the question.
Adrian Peterson - RBPosted 2/4/19 12:14pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson said he will be playing next season 'for sure' and believes he might have two or three years left in the tank before he retires. Peterson is currently not under contract for 2019.
Huddle Up: Peterson surprised practically everyone in 2018 by running for over 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns. Unfortunately for him, Derrius Guice will be healthy and chomping at the bit in Washington, so Peterson's future in our nation's capital is in doubt. Stay tuned in the coming months for more on his situation.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 1/31/19 5:20pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) is making improvements but is not looking too far ahead in his rehab, according to team president Bruce Allen. Allen denied a recent report that stated the Redskins are preparing for Smith to miss the entire 2019 season.
Huddle Up: Smith likely will miss at least a portion of the 2019 season and could miss all of the games depending on his recovery. It is not known what the Redskins will do a quarterback next season, so owners in all leagues probably should avoid the situation during fantasy drafts.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 1/27/19 10:57am ET
Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) is tentatively not in the team's 2019 plans as the general feeling in the organization is that he'll miss the season with complications resulting from broken leg this past fall, sources said Sunday, Jan. 27.
Huddle Up: Washington is between a rock and hard place with Smith's big-$$$ contract and its need for a viable starting QB. Look for a free-agent signing a or a draft pick this offseason -- and maybe both. Sadly, meanwhile, don't be surprised if we've seen the last of Smith in the NFL as he'll turn 35 this May.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 1/21/19 3:21pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) was seen wearing a special leg brace Monday, Jan. 21. Smith underwent multiple surgeries on a broken fibula and tibia in addition to dealing with infections as a result of complications from the surgeries.
Huddle Up: Smith and his leg have a long road ahead of them. His status for the 2019 season seems doubtful given the severity of the injury and the extensive recovery. If the Redskins don't sign or draft a quarterback, Colt McCoy figures to start assuming he makes a full recovery from a broken leg. He is not a realistic fantasy option.
Derrius Guice - RBPosted 1/17/19 7:10pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) posted a video of himself on social media running and doing other drills on the field.
Huddle Up: Guice's rookie season was lost to a knee injury, but he should still have a chance to show he can lead the Washington backfield as early as next season. For now, he's a great stash candidate in keeper leagues.
Jamison Crowder - WRPosted 1/14/19 2:13pm ET
Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Jamison Crowder, despite his struggles and injury concerns, could demand a contract worth at least $8 million this offseason. Nonetheless, head coach Jay Gruden wants to try to retain Crowder. 'There is really not anything that Jamison can't do,' Gruden said. 'You look at his size and say he's little, but he plays big. He's got great quickness in intermediate routes, can separate, has good hands, he's tough, he's physical in the running game.' Crowder played better later in the year, but he was hampered by an ankle injury that caused him to miss seven games.
Huddle Up: Crowder may be in high demand as one of the top free-agent slot receivers on the market this year. If he does leave the Redskins then Trey Quinn figures to be thrust into a more meaningful role and would be worth a late-round dart throw.
Josh Johnson - QBPosted 12/30/18 8:25pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Josh Johnson completed just 12-of-27 passes for 91 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in the Week 17 shutout loss against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Johnson was pressed into duty after a slew of injuries in D.C., but he's unlikely to start a game in 2019 unless disaster strikes whatever organization he is playing for then. No fantasy value.
Jamison Crowder - WRPosted 12/30/18 8:36pm ET
Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder posted just one catch for seven yards on eight targets in the Week 17 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Crowder ended up with just 29 catches for 388 yards and two touchdowns on 49 targets, missing nearly half of the 2018 season due to injury. He had career lows across the board, but might be a steal in the later rounds in 2019 in fantasy leagues, particularly PPR formats, if he can get back to 100 percent.
Josh Doctson - WRPosted 12/30/18 8:33pm ET
Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson posted two grabs for 33 yards in Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles, setting a new career high with 532 yards in 2018.
Huddle Up: Doctson failed to come close to the six touchdowns he posted last season, but he did well considering the Redskins ran through Alex Smith, Colt McCoy, Mark Sanchez and Josh Johnson at the quarterback position this season. His future is still pretty bright.
Adrian Peterson - RBPosted 12/30/18 8:28pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson ran four times for no yards in Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles, a tough finish to a surprisingly good season.
Huddle Up: It was just his second 1,000-yard season in the past five campaigns, and his seven rushing scores were the most since he had 11 in 2015 with the Minnesota Vikings. He showed he still has plenty of mileage left on the odometer heading into 2019, defying Father Time rather nicely.
