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

May 02, 01:53 PM Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said he is comfortable with playing under the one-year franchise tag if the team wants to see him play in more games before they give him a long-term deal. 'I think that people make great decisions when they have a lot of information at their disposal, and if the Redskins would like more information from this next season to be able to make a decision on me long-term, I totally understand that and understand where they're coming from,' Cousins said. Cousins also said he would be fine if the team wanted to give him a long-term deal before next season.
May 02, 11:13 AM Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is optimistic about signing a long-term deal before the season starts. 'I think there's a chance,' Cousins said. 'The ball's in the court of the Redskins.'
May 01, 04:33 PM Washington Redskins CB Kendall Fuller (knee) should be ready to participate during training camp and could receive clearance at some point during offseason workouts. He is expected to compete with CBs Will Blackmon, Quinton Dunbar and Deshazor Everett for the nickel back job.
Apr 26, 01:03 PM Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins and the Redskins continue to talk about a long-term deal, according to general manager Scot McCloughan. The negotiations are considered positive, and McCloughan thinks a deal could be imminent. Cousins signed his franchise tag for close to $20 million on March 3. The deadline for a long-term deal is July 15.

Apr 25, 02:03 AM Washington Redskins CB Josh Norman reportedly contacted team officials of the Carolina Panthers Wednesday, April 20, in an attempt to sign his franchise tag, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation. It was too late, as the team had already notified the league it was rescinding his tag.

Fantasy Impact: Not a surprise. Norman seemed to really like playing with the Panthers.
Apr 23, 07:23 PM Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins CB Josh Norman's deal is actually two years in length and worth $36.5 million, fully guaranteed. He can earn $500,000 in per-game roster bonuses in 2017, and the rest of the deal is option years. The remainder of his injury guarantee, which is $13.5 million, will become fully guaranteed in March 2018.
Apr 22, 07:53 PM Free-agent CB Josh Norman (Panthers) is signing a five-year deal worth $75 million with the Washington Redskins Friday, April 22, according to a source. The deal includes $50 million in guarantees.

Fantasy Impact: A huge deal for Norman. He'll be the top cornerback for this team the next several years. It is a big upgrade for the Redskins in the secondary but the team probably paid too much for him, which could impact things going forward.
Apr 21, 03:03 AM The Jacksonville Jaguars have interested in free-agent CB Josh Norman (Panthers), a source said Wednesday, April 20. The team has more than $50 million in salary cap space, and they were interested in Norman prior to his franchise tagging by the Carolina Panthers.

Apr 20, 04:23 PM Atlanta Falcons OG Chris Chester re-signed to a one-year deal Wednesday, April 20, worth a maximum of $2.8 million, according to a source. Chester is coming off offseason shoulder surgery but is expected to be ready for offseason activities in June.
Apr 18, 07:53 PM Carolina Panthers franchise free-agent CB Josh Norman is not close to reaching an agreement on a contract extension, according to a source. The Panthers have yet to come close to even matching this year's tag number, which is $13.952 million in 2016. Manager Dave Gettleman said the team is 'very comfortable' letting Norman play under the tag this year. Both sides continue to talk, but nothing is expected to heat up until after the draft. Norman has no current plans to hold out of training camp if a long-term deal isn't reached by July 15.
