2015 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Washington Redskins
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Redskins can compete in their division but getting to the playoffs seems a bit of a stretch. The defense still has a lot of holes and while the offense should be better, it still isnā??t near that of others in their division. Washington is likely to finish around that 7-9 mark this season, putting coach Jay Gruden firmly on the hot seat.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Tight end Jordan Reed didnā??t score a touchdown last year but had three games with 70 or more yards and became a dependable target in the passing game. He will be the starter from day on this year for the Redskins. He had some injury issues last year, which hurt his overall numbers, so the potential is there for Reed to produce well as a No. 1 tight end. Reed can get around 800 yards and six scores for the Redskins, making him a legit starter for fantasy teams.
FANTASY DUD
It is hard to trust Robert Griffin despite all his talent. He is another year older in this offense but showed little in it last year to make you think heā??ll be a whole lot better in 2015. He should start for the Redskins but expect more erratic play. He might be worth a few spot starts for fantasy teams but donā??t expect him to regain his form from his rookie season. Griffin is a big risk for fantasy teams.

Team Notes

Jul 23, 07:52 PM Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon could be in a contract year in 2015. He will cost $10.25 million against the salary cap next season, according to ESPN.com's John Keim.
Jul 18, 09:52 PM Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson has 48 catches of 40-plus yards over seven seasons, and he led the NFL with 13 such catches in 2014.
Jul 18, 01:32 PM Washington Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall (Achilles') could be asked to restructure his current $4 million contract, according to csnwashington.com. Hall suffered an Achilles' injury last season and the Redskins may not want to spend $4 million on Hall if that injury were aggravated.
Jul 14, 03:23 PM Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (knee) was held out of offseason activities due to knee surgery, but he is expected to participate in training camp later this month. Reed has also battled issues with his hamstring, hip, thigh, thumb and a concussion.
Jul 11, 03:53 PM Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul is prepared to step in and start if TE Jordan Reed struggles with injuries again this season. Paul practiced some with the first team this offseason and head coach Jay Gruden praised his development. Reed will start if and when he's healthy, but Reed has missed 12 games in his first two seasons in the league.

Jul 10, 09:23 PM Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (knee) is expected to be ready to report for the start of training camp Wednesday, July 29.
Jul 09, 06:33 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's progress this offseason has head coach Jay Gruden excited. Gruden said Griffin improved during organized team activities, adding that the more comfortable Griffin becomes with the terminology and reads, the more he'll keep improving. Gruden also said that Griffin has taken over as a leader, but that the team and coaching staff still need to be patient with him.
Jul 08, 06:23 PM Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris has rushed for at least 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns in each of his first three seasons. On average, Morris has rushed for 1,320.6 yards and 9.3 touchdowns.
Jul 08, 01:03 PM Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts will enter training camp as the slot receiver as well as the primary backup to both wide receiver spots.
Jul 04, 06:33 PM Washington Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall (Achilles') had his participation limited in optional workouts in May and June, as he continues to work his way back from a torn Achilles' tendon. Hall's $4 million base salary for 2015 only becomes guaranteed if he makes the 53-man roster.
Jul 02, 01:33 PM Washington Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan (knee) said his rehab from knee surgery is going well and that he has been able to start running. Kerrigan said he is focused on building strength in the surgically repaired knee.
Jul 01, 09:03 PM Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson caught nine passes for 243 yards and a score in two games against the Philadelphia Eagles last season, continuing a trend of big performances against NFC East opponents. 'I'm called a Cowboy killer,' Jackson said. 'They call me the Cowboy killer. I'm a Giants killer, I'm a Cowboys killer, now I'm an Eagles killer, too.'
Jul 01, 03:33 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's decision-making, fundamentals, footwork and his inability to find open receivers are all reasons why Griffin isn't good enough to be successful in the NFL, in the opinion of ESPN NFL analyst Mark Brunell.
Jun 24, 02:23 PM Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon could be featured more often in the passing game this season based on the offseason workouts. Garcon often lined up to the right of the quarterback during the workouts even though he has been used mostly on the left side. Head coach Jay Gruden said he was impressed with Garcon's work this offseason.

Fantasy Impact: Don't forget about Garcon this season. He can get a lot more targets and be fantasy relevant once again.
Jun 19, 12:12 AM Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy and QB Kirk Cousins have created no separation from each other in their battle to be the primary backup quarterback in 2015, and head coach Jay Gruden said their performance in the preseason games could be the deciding factor.
