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.

Jul 26, 09:22 AM Washington Redskins CB Tracy Porter (shoulder) said he is good to go after missing the offseason program while recovering from shoulder surgery.
Jul 26, 09:22 AM Washington Redskins RB Evan Royster (undisclosed) is working to the side during practice Saturday, July 26.
Jul 25, 07:42 PM Washington Redskins WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) has received clearance to start running but will not rush back to practice. 'I'm not sure how fast I can run, but I can run. It's about having some confidence in it, about being around 95 to 100 percent. I don't have the explosion yet. I come out here, I line up and run routes and it's not explosive. So, I know there's no reason to go out there yet. I'd probably just go out there and embarrass myself or something like that,' Hankerson said.
Jul 25, 11:02 AM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III and WR Andre Roberts are displaying good chemistry in practice Friday, July 25.
Jul 24, 02:42 PM Washington Redskins DT Jason Hatcher (knee) said he is progressing pretty quickly from a knee injury. I want to get back on the field, but I know I've got take precaution, Hatcher said. It's progressing pretty quickly. The trainers got a great game plan, so I'm just going to stick with it. Whenever they say I'm ready to go, I'm back on the field.
Jul 24, 10:22 AM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's designed running plays might be 'few and far between,' according to head coach Jay Gruden. He still has the green light to scramble as the situation dictates. 'I feel good where he's at,' Gruden said. 'He made some serious strides just in the spring working in the pocket and delivering throws and pulling it down and running when he had to run. That comes naturally but also comes with a lot of reps and playing the position.'
Jul 23, 06:03 PM Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins DT Jason Hatcher (knee) will not participate in practice Thursday, July 24.
Jul 23, 04:53 PM Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins OT Maurice Hurt was placed on the team's Physically Unable to Perform list because he is out of shape.
