2014 DRAFT GUIDE

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.

Team Notes

Oct 23, 05:49 PM Washington Redskins LB Perry Riley (knee) will start as soon as he is healthy enough to do so, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Oct 23, 05:22 PM Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy will start Week 8, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Impact: This isn't a big surprise. He could get a few starts but isn't worth using for fantasy teams.
Oct 23, 04:22 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is unlikely to be ready to play Monday, Oct. 27, against the Dallas Cowboys, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said that Griffin has looked great in practices the last two weeks, but cited the fact that he's rusty and hasn't had meaningful repetitions in six weeks as a factor. First it starts with the doctors telling me he's full-go, as far as being able to take a hit and all that good stuff, Gruden said. And then it's gonna be getting more reps, and then I've got to see him comfortable throwing the timing routes, the out routes on time with no hitch, and all the reads and all the progressions. He's going to have to get more and more reps.'
Oct 22, 11:43 PM Updating a previous report, there is no chance Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) plays in the Week 8 game against the Dallas Cowboys Monday, Oct. 27, multiple sources said Wednesday, Oct. 22.
Oct 22, 02:33 PM Washington Redskins WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) said he feels 100 percent and believes he has a good grasp of the offense. Hankerson said he is not sure when he will be activated from the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list.
Oct 22, 01:43 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's (ankle) status for Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys will be determined by team doctors, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'It's up to the trainers and doctors right now, they gotta clear him, No. 1, like I said,' Gruden added. 'No. 2, he's got to feel good. But it's gonna be a process of how he feels tomorrow, how he feels the next day, and how he's throwing and how he's playing the position.' Griffin took part in individual drills in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, and took repetitions in the team portion. Gruden said Griffin looked good doing the drills.
Oct 22, 01:13 PM Washington Redskins QBs Robert Griffin III (ankle) and Colt McCoy hopefully will find out the starting quarterback for Week 8 by Thursday, Oct. 23, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said Griffin will either start or be inactive for the game.
Oct 22, 10:43 AM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will increase his workload in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.
Oct 21, 06:13 PM The Washington Redskins re-signed LB Everette Brown to their active roster Tuesday, Oct. 21.
Oct 21, 02:13 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will not be ruled out for Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys, but he has a long way to go in order to be ready, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said Griffin must be 100 percent in order to play.
Oct 20, 07:08 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is expected to be put through a rigorous workout Wednesday, Oct. 22, that will give team officials a better idea of where he's at in his recovery. Griffin has already joined practices for stretching, warm-ups, individual drills and limited handoffs with the scout team. Head coach Jay Gruden has said he'd like to have Griffin log at least two weeks of practice before returning to a starting role. QB Colt McCoy appears to have the inside track to start in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys if it's between he and QB Kirk Cousins. It's a good sign the way Colt finished the game, ran the offense, Gruden said, alluding to his poise and efficiency in engineering the game-winning touchdown drive on the last possession, which started with 3 minutes and 14 seconds remaining. Very smart and very efficient. Did some good things.
Oct 20, 07:07 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could start in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys if he looks really good in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, according to a team source. The team would ideally like to hold him out another week in order to prepare. If he doesn't start, QB Colt McCoy will likely receive the starting nod for the first time since December of 2011 with the Cleveland Browns.
Oct 20, 03:23 PM Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy would start this week if QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is unable to play, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Oct 20, 03:13 PM Washington Redskins LB Brian Orakpo (pectoral) will undergo surgery for his torn pectoral, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Orakpo is out for the season.
Oct 20, 01:23 PM Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins LB Brian Orakpo (pectoral) will miss the rest of the season because of a torn right pectoral muscle.
Oct 20, 12:42 PM Washington Redskins LB Brian Orakpo (pectoral) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list.
