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 isn'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 didn'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 he'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 don't expect him to regain his form from his rookie season. Griffin is a big risk for fantasy teams.

Team Notes

May 22, 06:03 PM Washington Redskins OG Shawn Lauvao (foot, ankle) likely will not be able to participate in organized team activities because of the injury he suffered during the 2015 season.
May 19, 10:13 AM Washington Redskins CB Kendall Fuller (knee) estimated that he is 90-95% strength and will be ready for training camp July 28. Fuller had microfracture surgery last fall to repair cartilage in his right knee. The Redskins say they're optimistic about Fuller's recovery because it was a tiny area being repaired, which meant he needed fewer incisions.
May 18, 04:53 PM Free-agent FS Dashon Goldson (Redskins) has reached out to the Oakland Raiders and Los Angeles Rams, saying he wants to finish his career in the west. Goldson has already worked out for the Rams.
May 17, 09:03 PM Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder will serve as the Redskins' primary slot receiver in 2016, with WRs Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson and Ryan Grant also capable of playing in the slot.

May 16, 11:13 PM Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson said he is working on learning the new routes he will have to run in the NFL. 'A lot of the routes are deeper,' Doctson said. 'A lot of deep in-breaking routes. I probably didn't run one double move in college and we have a whole arsenal of double moves here. It's a little different in and out of breaks, getting your hips around. Things like that.'
May 16, 07:53 PM Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said he believes long-term contract talks will intensify closer to the July 15 deadline.
May 16, 04:33 PM Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones is expected to stay healthy and secure the football this season, and general manager Scot McCloughan has no concerns that he can do both. McCloughan said Jones has looked great this offseason.
May 16, 01:13 PM Washington Redskins LB Junior Galette (Achilles') looks 'fast as ever,' according to LB Ryan Kerrigan. Galette said he was around 80% healthy recently.
May 15, 05:43 PM Washington Redskins CB Kendall Fuller (knee) said he expects to be a full participant when training camp begins. Fuller has not been cleared for on-field work at this point but is working with trainers on the side.
May 12, 02:53 PM Free-agent FS Dashon Goldson (Redskins) is visiting the Los Angeles Rams Thursday, May 12, according to a source.
May 08, 09:54 PM Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson could overtake either WRs Pierre Garcon or DeSean Jackson in the starting lineup at some point in 2016, in the opinion of Rich Tandler of realredskins.com.

Fantasy Impact: This isn't a surprise. Doctson is the future at the position for the team. Garson might be on the hot seat more so than Jackson.

May 08, 02:53 PM Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones could see 15 to 20 carries per game this season, in the opinion of CSNWashington's Rich Tandler.

Fantasy Impact: Jones is going to get his chance to be the clear lead back. He could really do some damage in that role.
