2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Washington Redskins
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
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.
