Redskins | Josh Doctson to open as backup?

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 17:59:39 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson is likely to open the year as the backup to WR DeSean Jackson and WR Pierre Garcon while WR Jamison Crowder works as the starting slot receiver, according to bear writer John Keim.

Fantasy Tip: Doctson missed some time during minicamp, and Washington's depth at receiver further hurts his chances of making a quick impact. He should be scooped up early in rookie drafts, but he is a late-round flier in standard formats.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson shows up to OTAs

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 10:48:22 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson is with the team for the third week of organized team activities after skipping the first two weeks. His absence wasn't that big of a surprise this year, as Jackson has skipped voluntary practices in previous years.

Fantasy Tip: D-Jax is entering the final year of his current contract and will be looking to have a big year entering free agency. The 'Skins have a bevvy of receiving options for Kirk Cousins, with Jackson being the go-to guy. However, he's more of a deep threat and produces more for owners in standard-scoring leagues as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3.

Redskins | WAS not worried about D-Jax's absence

Tue, 31 May 2016 19:00:39 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson forfeited a $500,000 workout bonus tied to the number of workout sessions he attended, but he has already missed too much time to collect the money. He had to show up for 90 percent of the offseason workouts, which began April 18. Despite his absence, the team is not a concern for the club. Several coaches and team officials have said Jackson knows the offense and is smart, lessening their concerns.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson posted 30 catches for 528 yards and four touchdowns, missing a large chunk of the season due to a hamstring injury. As long as he is in shape and healthy, he is a dangerous WR3/4 or flex fantasy option going forward.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson not at workouts

Wed, 25 May 2016 12:26:22 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson has not participated in voluntary workouts this week, but he has visited the Redskins. Head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson knows what kind of shape he has to be in and does expect him to participate in other voluntary workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson only played in nine games last season, so health will be key for him this offseason and throughout 2016. He's Washington's best deep threat and is still worth consideration as a low-end WR2 in standard leagues.

Redskins | Jamison Crowder to play slot

Tue, 17 May 2016 17:57:24 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder will serve as the Redskins' primary slot receiver in 2016, with WRs Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson and Ryan Grant also capable of playing in the slot.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson and Doctson currently have the most fantasy appeal in Washington, but don't completely disregard Garcon, either. Crowder is a sneaky sleeper candidate after tallying 59 catches for 604 yards and two touchdowns in his rookie season, but don't view him as more than a WR5 at best in the Redskins' packed wide receiver corps.

Redskins | Josh Doctson to start eventually?

Sun, 08 May 2016 12:04:27 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson could overtake either WRs Pierre Garcon or DeSean Jackson in the starting lineup at some point in 2016, in the opinion of Rich Tandler of realredskins.com.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon would be more likely to yield playing time to Doctson, and, of course, all three will see the field at the same time on occasion. Doctson is one of the more promising rookies this year and should be drafted as a low-end WR3 to high-end WR4.

Redskins | Josh Doctson will play outside

Wed, 04 May 2016 16:58:03 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson will start out as an outside receiver, playing behind WRs DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, according to offensive coordinator Sean McVay. McVay and head coach Jay Gruden see similarities between Doctson and Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green. "I think that's a great comparison, because you look at a taller, leaner player with great body control and excellent ball skills," McVay said.

Fantasy Tip: It may take some time for Doctons to acclimate to the professional level, but he definitely has a role to play with the Redskins. He could be more of a downfield threat, like a poor man's DeSean Jackson. For now, consider Doctson a WR4 in fantasy land.

Redskins | Washington WRs dilemma ahead?

Tue, 12 Jan 2016 12:03:26 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson is due $3.75 million and WR Pierre Garcon $7.6 million in 2016 -- the final year in each of their contracts. Each receiver is entering their age-29 season.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson dealt with a hamstring injury for most of the first half of 2015 and was limited to 30 catches -- his worst in eight NFL seasons. Garcon has evolved into much more of a possession receiver for Washington since posting a career-high 113 catches in 2013. With TE Jordan Reed taking on more of a starring role for the Redskins this year and WR Jamison Crowder showing well in his rookie year, the team could opt to move on from Jackson and Garcon at the end of the 2016 season.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson quiet in loss

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 18:43:27 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) was able to play in the NFC Wild Card Game against the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 10, but he managed just two grabs for 17 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: D-Jax nearly had a touchdown, but it was overturned in the first quarter after review showed he stepped up at the half-yard line. He finished the season banged up, but still has plenty left in the tank heading into 2016. He just needs to get healthy. The good news is Kirk Cousins emerged as a solid quarterback, and that means Jackson could still be an 800-1,000 yard producer with a handful of scores.

Redskins | Probable tag for DeSean Jackson

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 13:27:40 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) practiced in full all week and is listed as probable for the wild-card game against the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) is an intriguing FantasyScore commodity with Kirk Cousins peaking for the Redskins at quarterback. Green Bay's secondary could be weakened if Sam Shields does not play, too, so choosing D-Jax for your daily lineups is a solid move.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson has full practice

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 14:40:17 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) participated fully in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: The Green Bay Packers were above averaged on defense versus wide receivers this year, but Jackson ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) has above average speed, too. He's one of the more expensive wide receivers on FantasyScore for the playoffs, but he's not a bad play with Kirk Cousins playing the way he has been, especially at home.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson a full go

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 14:23:04 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers secondary hasn't been bad this year, but they could surely struggle to keep D-Jax ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) from blowing the top off the secondary in the wild-card game Sunday. Jackson is a fine daily pick with Kirk Cousins as confident as ever right now.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson not targeted

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 17:20:05 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) was not targeted in a 34-23 win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: With Washington's playoff position already secured, there was no reason to risk Jackson re-aggravating his knee injury. Thanks to his big-play ability, he will have one of the highest ceilings at FantasyScore of any receiver available in the postseason.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson active Sunday

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 09:16:24 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) is active for Week 17's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: It is unknown how many snaps Jackson ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) will see today, since Washington has clinched the No. 4 playoff seed in the NFC and has nothing to play for this week. Avoid using him in FantasyScore.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson questionable for Week 17

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 14:54:29 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as questionable for the Week 17 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: It is likely best to fade all of Washington's starters in Week 17, including Jackson ($6,300, 12.6% of cap). They've already clinched the No. 4 seed and have nothing to play for this weekend. Jackson missed time earlier this season, too, so having him as close to 100% health as possible for the playoffs should be a priority for Washington.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson limited Thursday

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 14:01:39 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) and the rest of Washington's starters may not play much this week as they've already locked up the No. 4 seed, so they have nothing to play for. The normal starters may start, but they may not play too long, so look elsewhere at wide receiver on FantasyScore.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson, Matt Jones limited

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 16:26:16 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) and RB Matt Jones (hip) were both limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins cannot improve their playoff standing with a win this Sunday, so they could rest most of their starters. That makes both Jackson ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) and Jones ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) extremely unpredictable and unattractive on FantasyScore.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson to the locker room

Sat, 26 Dec 2015 19:46:34 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (cramps) went to the locker room with a trainer because of cramps against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16 and is questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Jackson isn't dealing with a serious injury. However, it remains to be seen if he will be able to return to the game.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson has torched Philadelphia

Sat, 26 Dec 2015 17:16:04 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson will face the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16, and in two meetings with the Eagles last year, he compiled nine catches for 243 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) made his former team pay last year, and as bad as Philadelphia's secondary has been, he should do more of the same this time around. His upside is tough to pass up at FantasyScore.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson probable for Week 16

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 14:24:19 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (foot, knee) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 25, and he is probable for the Week 16 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: View Jackson ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) as a strong WR2 play in seasonal leagues for Week 16, and there is profit room in his FantasyScore cap hit, too. Philadelphia is allowing the ninth most yards per game through the air, and Jackson has four touchdowns and an average of 86 yards per game through the air over the past five games.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson limited Thursday

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 13:26:35 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (foot, knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) returned to practice Thursday and appears to have a solid chance to play this week against the Philadelphia Eagles. He has scored a touchdown in four of his last five games and is coming off a 153-yard performance. Jackson should be a solid option because of his favorable matchup.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson sits

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 08:51:08 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) is out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.

Fantasy Tip: It's likely a veteran day for D-Jax, who had a big game last weekend. Jackson ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has a revenge game against the Philadelphia Eagles this week and is a nice WR2 on FantasyScore.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins better with D-Jax

Tue, 22 Dec 2015 07:15:40 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is 152-for-214 (71%) for 1,888 yards, 13 touchdowns and three interceptions since WR DeSean Jackson returned from a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) has elevated into the upper tiers of QBs on FantasyScore. He has a decent matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles this week.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson blows up in win

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 18:02:03 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson rolled up six receptions for 153 yards and a touchdown in the Week 15 game against Buffalo Bills. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson had his first 100-yard game of the season. He has scored in four of his past five games, re-emerging as a fantasy stud at just the right time.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 18, and is listed as probable for the Week 15 game against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) should see his usual playing time and has a touchdown in three of his last four games. He could be a solid starting option for owners this week.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson limited Thursday

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 10:39:57 -0800

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 17, and head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson was running around well and took part in individual and team drills.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is confident that he'll play against the Buffalo Bills, a defense that is very generous to opposing receivers this year. The Bills have been a top-10 PPR fantasy matchup all season long. That means D-Jax is an acceptable daily play, and many folks might shy away with him on the injury report.

Tue, 15 Dec 2015 19:20:15 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) said Tuesday, Dec. 15, that his knee is "all right" and he expects to be ready for Week 15 against the Buffalo Bills. He suffered a patella contusion in Week 14 against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) might be able to play, but he is a risky FantasyScore option if he isn't quite 100 percent.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson day-to-day

Mon, 14 Dec 2015 14:27:51 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) is day-to-day with a patella contusion, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should be able to play in Week 15 against the Buffalo Bills unless he suffers a setback in practice this week. He remains more attractive in standard scoring leagues, but he could be a monster in daily formats against a Bills secondary allowing 39.0 PPR fantasy points per games to receivers.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) hurt his knee making a catch as he went out of bounds in the fourth quarter. Coach Jay Gruden said Jackson was sore but all right.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) will be worth looking at in the next day or two to make sure he is just fine. Keep an eye on his progress.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson redeems himself

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 22:49:05 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson had a costly fumble trying to do too much on a punt return in the fourth quarter of the Week 13 game against the Dallas Cowboys. He quickly made up for it, posting a 28-yard touchdown to tie the game before his team eventually lost.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson finished with six receptions for 80 yards and a touchdown, producing the only solid fantasy line of the game at any position. Jackson is unlikely to have big numbers against a solid Chicago Bears pass defense in Week 14.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson still probable

Sat, 05 Dec 2015 10:40:06 -0800

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (illness) did not practice Saturday, Dec. 5, due to an illness, but he is still probable for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) will be good to go, but against one of the top fantasy defenses versus wide receivers this year in the Dallas Cowboys. They have only allowed six touchdowns to the position this year, so you may want to look elsewhere on FantasyScore for wide receiver.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson not practicing

Sat, 05 Dec 2015 09:55:10 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Saturday, Dec. 5, and the reason for the absence is not known at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Jackson ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is dealing with an injury or is just receiving a day off. Jackson has played well since returning from his injury and could be a decent starting option for fantasy owners if active.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson draws tough matchup

Sat, 21 Nov 2015 18:35:17 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson is expected to be covered by Carolina Panthers CB Josh Norman in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has managed just 59 total yards in two games since returning from a hamstring injury, and a breakout performance is unlikely to come in Week 11 with Norman blanketing him.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (head, neck) left the team's Week 10 game and was evaluated for a possible head or neck injury. He is expected to return to the game.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson appears to have a good chance to return to the game, but owners should look for any updates on his status after the game. Jackson recently returned from a hamstring injury and could be a solid option against most opponents.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson looks faster

Sat, 14 Nov 2015 13:19:14 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson looked faster in practice this week, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: The New Orleans Saints have allowed 11 passes of 40 yards or more, so D-Jax ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) could have opportunities to break one. However, his chemistry with Kirk Cousins is lacking after missing most of camp and much of the season due to injuries. He's a boom-or-bust flex option on FantasyScore.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson quiet in return

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 20:46:42 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson had three catches on six targets for 15 yards in a 27-10 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) played for the first time since the opener, and while he didn't make much of an impact, his hamstring appears to have held up fine. He has always been a high-risk, high-reward fantasy option, but he could be worth taking a chance on in Week 10 when the Redskins face a Saints defense that has allowed the most passing touchdowns in the NFL.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson back in the lineup

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 08:53:31 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) is officially active for the Week 9 game against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) will be playing for the first time since he suffered his hamstring injury in Week 1. Jackson will be a risky option for owners because of the injury but does have a favorable matchup since the Patriots allow the sixth most fantasy points to wide receivers. Owners may want to bench Jackson if they have healthier options to use.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) is expected to play in the Week 9 game against the New England Patriots, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) would be playing for the first time since he suffered the injury in Week 1. It is not known if he will see limited snaps, so he should be considered a risky option by owners. He does have a favorable matchup this week and could be a starting option in some leagues.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson appears on track

Fri, 06 Nov 2015 14:27:35 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) was limited in practice again Friday, Nov. 6, and is questionable for Week 9 against the New England Patriots. Jackson appears to be on track to return for the first time since Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) will certainly help a Washington offense that'll need all the help it can afford against New England on the road. However, making your return against the Patriots isn't ideal, so it's probably best to hold off on D-Jax for another week.

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 10:49:23 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) was listed as limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 4, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: D-Jax ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is expected to return this weekend against the New England Patriots, and this is a good start to the week if he's to make that happen. There's plenty or risk using him immediately if he returns for his first action since Week 1, but the Pats also allow the sixth-most PPR fantasy points (40.4) to receivers per week.

Redskins | Confidence key for DeSean Jackson

Mon, 02 Nov 2015 13:15:14 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) wants to build confidence that his injured hamstring is at 100%, which would enable him to play without worrying about aggravating the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson said he should be able to return to the field this week, but making sure he's 100% would give him more mental comfort. He's got a good matchup against the New England Patriots, but he could be rusty.

Fantasy Tip: It actually appears that Jackson may be on the field this weekend. That's not to say he will look like his usual self; he could some a bit rusty after missing eight weeks of action. He does have a favorable matchup against the New England Patriots in Week 9, but use caution when considering to put Jackson in lineups this week.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) missed practice for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 23, and is out for Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: The Buccaneers are vulnerable in the secondary, giving up the seventh-most PPR fantasy points (41.1) to receivers per game this year, so Pierre Garcon ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) should be seen as a strong daily play. Also look to Jamison Crowder ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) as a potential sleeper flex pick.
