2014 DRAFT GUIDE

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

Mar 25, 11:03 AM Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson is the front runner for the third-down back role, according to head coach Jay Gruden. The team could also draft a back for the role.
Mar 24, 05:02 PM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's option must be picked up by May 3. General manager Scot McCloughan said the team has had discussions about Griffin's option and that they are still talking it through.
Mar 24, 04:42 PM Washington Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan said that the team will go with the best player available in the 2015 NFL Draft with the No. 5 overall pick, which means that they could take a quarterback in that spot. McCloughan could be compelled to take Oregon QB Marcus Mariota if he's available at No. 5, even after the team said QB Robert Griffin III was the team's starter a month ago. McCloughan doesn't think anyone will be handed a job, and they'll have to compete to win a spot.
Mar 23, 05:22 PM Free-agent DE Adam Carriker (quadriceps) said he has been physically cleared by Dr. James Andrews, and Carriker said he's feeling great physically. Carriker is expected to draw interest from the 50 scouts that were in attendance at last weekend's veteran combine.
Mar 23, 01:52 PM Free-agent DE Adam Carriker (Redskins) took part in the NFL's first veteran combine this weekend.
Mar 17, 12:23 PM Free-agent QB Colt McCoy re-signed with the Washington Redskins Tuesday, March 17, according to a league source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Fantasy Impact: McCoy should serve as the top backup for the Redskins.
Mar 16, 01:13 PM Free-agent SS Jeron Johnson (Seahawks) has agreed to terms with the Washington Redskins on a two-year deal worth $4 million, according to a source.

Mar 12, 07:33 PM Updating previous reports, free-agent DT Terrance Knighton (Broncos) agreed to a one-year deal worth $4 million Thursday, March 12.
Mar 12, 04:03 PM Free-agent DT Terrance Knighton (Broncos) had a good visit with the Washington Redskins Wednesday, March 11, but he continues to mull his options. The Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots and San Diego Chargers all have some interest in him, as well.
Mar 11, 01:03 PM Free-agent DT Terrance Knighton (Broncos) has strong interest from the Washington Redskins, even after they signed DT Stephen Paea. Knighton will visit with the 'Skins Wednesday, March 11.
Mar 10, 10:03 PM Free-agent DT Terrance Knighton (Broncos) has been the subject of "a few discussions" for the Green Bay Packers management, according to a source. However, nothing appears imminent.
Mar 10, 04:53 PM Free-agent DT Terrance Knighton (Broncos) is highly unlikely to sign with the Oakland Raiders. However, there remains plenty of interest in Knighton on the open market, but the Denver Broncos aren't involved in talks to re-sign him.
