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

Jul 01, 09:03 PM Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson caught nine passes for 243 yards and a score in two games against the Philadelphia Eagles last season, continuing a trend of big performances against NFC East opponents. 'I'm called a Cowboy killer,' Jackson said. 'They call me the Cowboy killer. I'm a Giants killer, I'm a Cowboys killer, now I'm an Eagles killer, too.'
Jul 01, 03:33 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's decision-making, fundamentals, footwork and his inability to find open receivers are all reasons why Griffin isn't good enough to be successful in the NFL, in the opinion of ESPN NFL analyst Mark Brunell.
Jun 24, 02:23 PM Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon could be featured more often in the passing game this season based on the offseason workouts. Garcon often lined up to the right of the quarterback during the workouts even though he has been used mostly on the left side. Head coach Jay Gruden said he was impressed with Garcon's work this offseason.

Fantasy Impact: Don't forget about Garcon this season. He can get a lot more targets and be fantasy relevant once again.
Jun 19, 12:12 AM Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy and QB Kirk Cousins have created no separation from each other in their battle to be the primary backup quarterback in 2015, and head coach Jay Gruden said their performance in the preseason games could be the deciding factor.

Jun 18, 06:32 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III said he's feeling better than he's felt in a while. 'I just think we're all feeling better about what we're doing,' Griffin said. 'We know a lot more than last year. And for me as a player, you always have to be confident. Sometimes you have to throw a little swag on it.'
Jun 16, 09:33 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III has been impressing head coach Jay Gruden this offseason. 'The more he plays, the more success he has, the more confidence he's going to build up as a player and the more confident this whole offense is going to be with him under center,' Gruden said of Griffin. 'That comes with time. I don't think anybody lacks confidence with him at quarterback. I think the transition for him into a new season last season was a little bit rocky for all of us. When you have the same system going in for Year 2, I think he's going to get better,' said Gruden.
Jun 09, 01:52 PM Atlanta Falcons OG Jon Asamoah (undisclosed) was sitting out of practice with an unknown injury Tuesday, June 9. OT Ryan Schraeder was at right tackle, OG Chris Chester was at right guard, C James Stone was at center, OG Mike Person was at left guard and OG Lamar Holmes was at left guard Tuesday.
Jun 08, 05:42 PM Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon is being incorporated more into Washington's offense this year, according to a source.
Jun 04, 10:02 AM Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon ran routes as the 'Z' receiver instead of the 'X' receiver Wednesday, June 3. This means Garcon lines up split out on the right instead of the left. WR DeSean Jackson was the 'X' receiver, and WRs Andre Roberts and Jamison Crowder rotated as the slot receiver.

Jun 03, 07:23 PM Washington Redskins OT Trent Williams (ankle) will be out until training camp due to a torn ligament in his ankle. Williams saw Dr. Anderson in Charlotte and was cleared for training camp.
Jun 02, 02:33 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's fifth-year option being picked up was the obvious decision, according to team president Bruce Allen. 'We know his talent. It really was a no-brainer,' Allen said. 'I think if you asked us six months before it would have been the same decision.'
Jun 01, 04:02 PM Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson's absence from organized team activities (OTAs) last week isn't too big of an issue, according to team president Bruce Allen. Jackson is expected to participate in OTAs this week.
Jun 01, 11:22 AM Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (knee) underwent a minor knee operation recently, but he will be ready for training camp.
