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.

Team Notes

Oct 30, 01:42 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) received most of the work with the first-team offense during practice Thursday, Oct. 30, and will start in Week 9 if he does not have any setbacks, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said the team believes Griffin is 100 percent physically but want to make sure he is up to speed mentally.
Oct 29, 05:53 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is expected to start in the team's Week 9 game against the Minnesota Vikings, according to league sources.

Fantasy Impact: This isn't a surprise. He is making good progress.
Oct 29, 05:53 PM Washington Redskins S Ryan Clark (ankle, shoulder) and OT Trent Williams (knee) were limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29. LB Ryan Kerrigan (wrist), LB Trent Murphy (knee), CB Tracy Porter (hamstring), LB Perry Riley (knee) and LB Keenan Robinson (shoulder) practiced in full.
Oct 29, 03:33 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Fantasy Impact: Griffin has a legit shot to return to the starting lineup this week.
Oct 28, 06:13 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is 'very, very, very close' to returning to game action, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'Physically I think he'll be ready to go. Doctors are feeling pretty good about it, they still want to feel around this week until we make the final determination. I just want to make sure he feels good in the pocket,' Gruden said. The Redskins still don't want to rush Griffin back too soon, though, so the evaluation of him could last another week.
Oct 28, 12:33 AM Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson had six catches on seven targets for 136 yards in Week 8, and he has topped 100 receiving yards three times in his last four games after managing just one 100-yard game in the first four games of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson remains up and down at times but has been a little more consistent the last few games. He is having a fine first season with the Redskins.

Oct 24, 04:12 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) said he won't rush back to play until his ankle is fully healed. 'It's our job to help this team win, and I've been there for Kirk (Cousins) and Colt (McCoy) as much as I possibly can, and being there for this team to make sure they're as ready as possible during this process. And it sucks that I can't get out there and play with them and help them get wins, but I've been listening to the doctors, listening to the trainers, listening to the coaches and we're not going to rush my ankle,' Griffin said. The team is leaving open the possibility that Griffin will play Monday, Oct. 27, against the Dallas Cowboys.
