Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Redskins will be better than last season but that isn't saying much. The new offense should help, though, and the defense is making strides after some down seasons. We still aren't sure if they are a playoff caliber team just yet but getting closer. A lot of the success of the team might hinge on the development of Robert Griffin, who looked tentative in his return from ACL surgery last season. He obviously can be a difference maker if all is right with him.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Tight end Jordan Reed had his rookie season cut short because of concussion issues but was playing at a high level before the injury. He'll get his chance for a breakout year this season. He is healthy once again and will start from day one. Reed is a top target in this passing game and does a great job of making plays downfield at the tight end spot. He is becoming a legit No. 1 tight end for fantasy teams. Reed has the ability to get around 800 yards and eight touchdowns. He is the real deal at tight end and the Redskins should find plenty of ways to use him.
FANTASY DUD
We don't think DeSean Jackson will be a disaster with his new team but he might have a hard time repeating last season. Jackson has to compete with Pierre Garcon for targets, who is a clear favorite target of Robert Griffin, and learn a new offense. Plus, he might be under more pressure to perform after getting run out of town in Philadelphia. Jackson is a bit of wild card for the coming season. Don't forget he has less than 1,000 yards two of the past three seasons.

Feb 20, 02:52 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will enter the 2015 season as the team's starting quarterback, and general manager Bruce Allen thinks Griffin's ceiling in the NFL remains high. Griffin missed five games last year with a dislocated ankle, and Allen said Griffin must stay healthy in order to realize his potential. 'There's never been a question about him watching film,' Allen said. 'He is motivated. He's a (25-year-old) man who is still growing and learning the NFL game. We've seen him, a couple years ago, play at the highest of highs. Maybe it spoiled us a little bit to expect that all the time.'
Feb 18, 03:03 PM Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon would save the team a lot of money if he were to be cut, but head coach Jay Gruden said Garcon is still in the team's plans.
Feb 18, 01:23 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will go into the season as the team's starting starting quarterback, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Jones noted Cousins displayed better feel in the pocket than Griffin but also acknowledged that Cousins was unable to avoid turnovers.

Jan 09, 05:52 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III likely will be given another chance to succeed, because teams should not give up on young quarterbacks, according to general manager Scot McCloughan.
