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

Sep 02, 06:23 PM Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is a natural born leader and is ready to be the starting quarterback this season, according to WR Pierre Garcon. 'You can tell from what kind of person he is that he's a leader, he's been doing it for a long time and he's excited about the opportunity. We definitely want to keep him excited and never want to, you know, have him lose that faith in himself. He's definitely ready and eager to get the season started to prove to everybody what he can do,' Garcon said.
