Redskins | Andre Roberts might benefit from many weapons

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 19:46:37 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts has admitted since the signing of WR DeSean Jackson that he might have opted to go elsewhere had he known Jackson would be signed. However, Roberts might be one of the biggest beneficiaries of having WRs Pierre Garcon and Jackson, as well as TE Jordan Reed, in the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Roberts might be undrafted in most fantasy formats, but he could be an early-season waiver wire gem if he gets off to a good start and the Washington offense clicks out of the gate.

Thu, 05 Jun 2014 11:40:52 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon thinks he and WR DeSean Jackson can become the top receiving duo in the league this season.

"But I guess last year their stats were the top two receivers on the same team -- to be up there in the top 10 category for catches and yards or however they play it out. They are two good receivers, but we'll be up there next year fighting for that position."

Redskins | DeSean Jackson, Robert Griffin building chemistry

Thu, 29 May 2014 13:00:08 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson and QB Robert Griffin III continue to build chemistry during organized team activities this week. "Our chemistry right now is a work in progress," said Jackson, who tweaked his left hamstring and sat out part of practice but said afterward he was fine. "The more we get out here and keep working and staying after practice and running routes and getting our timing down, I think sooner or later we'll be in great shape."

Fantasy Tip: If RGIII can stay healthy all year, the production that both of these players can have is scary. Jackson should continue to be a productive WR2 with more value in PPR leagues.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson coming aboard?

Tue, 01 Apr 2014 05:19:29 -0700

A source said the Washington Redskins are likely to sign free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Eagles), and went as far as to refer it as a "done deal."

Fantasy Tip: The addition of Jackson would likely cut into Pierre Garcon's production, but would enhance Robert Griffin III's value. Jackson's deep-threat ability opens things up in the running game, and he fits the offense well. He's better served as a WR2 in PPR leagues due to his inconsistencies. It may be hard to draft him as such after his monster year, though.
