2015 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Washington Redskins
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

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

Feb 11, 11:33 AM Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was 195-for-275 (70.9%) for 2,429 yards, 20 touchdowns and three interceptions in nine games from Week 8 to the end of the season.
Feb 04, 04:33 PM Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris will be able to test free agency this offseason, according to team president Bruce Allen. If Morris is not offered a deal to his liking, then the Redskins may entertain re-signing Morris.
Feb 04, 12:13 PM Washington Redskins impending free-agent RB Alfred Morris isn't in active discussions to re-sign with the Redskins.
Feb 04, 12:13 PM Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is engaged in discussions to re-sign with the Redskins.
Feb 03, 01:13 AM The Washington Redskins re-signed DE Ziggy Hood to a one-year deal Tuesday, Feb. 2, according to a source. Financial terms were undisclosed.
Feb 03, 01:03 AM Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts is signed through the 2017 season with a cap hit of $5 million for 2016. Beat writer John Keim suggests the emergence of WR Jamison Crowder as the No. 1 slot receiver could mean Roberts is expendable. He has posted 46 receptions with two touchdowns in two seasons with Washington.

Jan 31, 04:03 PM Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul (ankle) should be ready for the start of offseason workouts and will work as the team's No. 2 tight end.
Jan 28, 11:53 PM Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones won't necessarily be the workhorse back in 2016 if RB Alfred Morris leaves in free agency because the team isn't sure Jones can fix everything he needs to over one offseason in order to become a lead back.

Fantasy Impact: Jones has some potential if he is starting, though, in this offense. He could have a breakout season in that role.
Jan 28, 10:43 PM Washington Redskins impending free-agent RB Alfred Morris likely won't be back in 2016, according to beat writer Rich Tandler. Tandler added that Morris could sign a deal to return if he doesn't find many offers on the open market.

Jan 27, 07:13 PM Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is expected to be re-signed this offseason, and general manager Scot McCloughan prefers signing him to a long-term deal instead of giving their quarterback the franchise tag. A long-term deal would be in the $17-20 million range, according to McCloughan, while Washington would have to pay Cousins about $20 million if they were to tag him.
Jan 27, 06:33 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III may not know if he'll be released or not until early March, according to general manager Scot McCloughan. The league-wide date on which teams can begin placing players on waivers is March 9.
