Outlook

This isn't a shock but the Redskins' season hinges on the health of Robert Griffin III. If Griffin can return from his knee injury sooner than later, the Redskins can me a top team this year. Griffin is an electric player that took the entire team to a new level last season. But if it takes some time for Griffin to round into form, this team could struggle some. We know they didn't play too badly when Griffin was out last year, but it is hard to imagine things going so smoothly this year. If Griffin is healthy and starting from day one, the Redskins are a Super Bowl contender this year.

FANTASY BREAKOUT

Leonard Hankerson, WR. He was supposed to be the breakout star at receiver last year for the Redskins but didn't get on the field much early in the year. He eventually found his way on the field, though, and even got some starts. He was inconsistent but had some big games along the way. He is certainly capable of producing big in this offense. And we think he is the most talented receiver in this offense besides Pierre Garcon, so it is only a matter of time before he is starting. He just needs to improve his consistency. Once that happens, Hankerson can help fantasy teams. He could approach 1,000 yards this season.

FANTASY DUD

Fred Davis, TE. Davis has a ton of upside and potential, but he is returning from an Achilles' tendon injury. He is close to full strength but is rebounding from a pretty major injury and could be slowed some early in the year. Plus, even when he was playing last year, Davis was a bit inconsistent for fantasy teams. He was a little up and down, and failed to score a touchdown when playing last year. So don't count on Davis to suddenly be a legit No. 1 this season. He isn't in that elite category just yet.

Team Notes

Apr 20, 08:52 PM The Cleveland Browns could consider pursuing a trade for Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins since they have 10 draft picks.
Apr 19, 11:22 AM The Washington Redskins may consider using WR Andre Roberts as a kick and punt returner this upcoming season, but he did not have great numbers when handled the role with the Arizona Cardinals.
Apr 19, 11:22 AM The Washington Redskins likely will not use WR DeSean Jackson as a punt returner very often because they want him to make plays on offense.
Apr 17, 10:32 AM An arbitrator ruled that Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson owes former agent Drew Rosenhaus $516,415 in back loans and fees.
Apr 14, 05:32 PM Washington Redskins FS Ryan Clark is expected to be the team's starting free safety this upcoming season.
Apr 14, 04:03 PM Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson reported for offseason workouts Monday, April 14, after missing last week because of a previously scheduled vacation.
Apr 11, 09:12 PM The New York Giants have not expressed any interest in free-agent QB Rex Grossman (Redskins) at this point.
Apr 11, 09:02 PM The Washington Redskins still have DT Stephen Bowen in their plans for this upcoming season but could ask him to restructure his contract, because he is scheduled to have a $7.02 million salary cap figure for 2014.
Apr 11, 07:32 PM Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts said he believed he would be the No. 2 receiver in 2014 but that was before the team added WR DeSean Jackson. Roberts said he does not know what his role will be this upcoming season. 'That's how the league is, that's how the league works,' Roberts said. 'Going into my situation, I wanted to be the No. 2 receiver. But I still don't how it's going to work out. Obviously, when you look at how much money is being made each guy, you'd think that's going to be [the] No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3."
Apr 09, 04:23 PM Washington Redskins LBs Akeem Jordan, Adam Hayward and Darryl Sharpton may compete for one of the starting inside linebacker job during training camp.
Apr 08, 01:22 PM Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) said he has not suffered any setbacks and is feeling great after dealing with a concussion in 2013.
Apr 07, 10:12 AM Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy received a one-year, $795,000 deal with a minimum base salary and a $65,000 signing bonus.
Apr 05, 12:12 PM The Washington Redskins have released WR Josh Bellamy, LB Josh Hull and CB Ryan Mouton.
Apr 04, 07:12 PM Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson was not very well liked when he was a member of the Philadelphia Eagles and was blatantly insubordinate, according to sources. Jackson cursed out head coach Chip Kelly several times in front of the team and appeared more concerned about his rap label than he was with winning games. One source said the team knew about his ties to gang members, but he was released because of his attitude.
Apr 03, 11:42 PM Updating a previous report, the Washington Redskins signed FS Ryan Clark to a one-year deal worth $1 million.
Apr 03, 12:32 PM The Washington Redskins signed free-agent QB Colt McCoy (49ers) to an undisclosed deal Thursday, April 3. Washington now has three quarterbacks on roster in McCoy and QBs Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins.

Fantasy Impact: McCoy should be the No. 3 this season if he makes the roster.
