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

Aug 23, 11:22 PM Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins LB Brian Orakpo's (ankle) ankle injury is not considered serious, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Aug 23, 10:02 PM Washington Redskins OT Morgan Moses (knee) and CB Chase Minnifield (hamstring) suffered injuries during the third preseason game and will not return.
Aug 23, 09:12 PM Washington Redskins LB Brian Orakpo (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the third preseason game and is considered questionable to return.
Aug 21, 05:12 PM Washington Redskins TE Mike Caussin (undisclosed) was placed on Reserve/Injured Thursday, Aug. 21.
Aug 21, 01:02 PM Washington Redskins DT Barry Cofield (groin) returned to practice Thursday, Aug. 21.

Aug 19, 11:13 AM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (thigh) is dealing with a bruised thigh suffered in the preseason game Monday, Aug. 18. Griffin said it is 'nothing to worry about' but that he must improve his sliding. He was hit hard a few times after the end of some scrambles and took a cumbersome attempt at a slide.
Aug 19, 05:13 AM Washington Redskins DE Stephen Bowen agreed to cut his base salary by $2.8 million this season under the terms of his new deal, but Bowen can make $2.05 million of that back through bonuses and incentives. Only a small chunk of that would count against the cap, so Bowen's restructure saves the team $2.3 million.
Aug 18, 10:53 PM Washington Redskins LB Robert Jackson (shoulder) and CB Tracy Porter (hamstring) left the team's preseason game Monday, Aug. 18. Jackson is questionable to return, and Porter is out for the game.
Aug 16, 10:51 PM Washington Redskins WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) may be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden added the team may keep WR Santana Moss for the first few weeks of the season while Hankerson would be on the PUP list.
Aug 16, 11:32 AM Washington Redskins FS Brandon Meriweather (toe) may not play in the second preseason game because of a toe injury, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
