Minnesota Vikings WR Josh Doctson was waived Tuesday, Nov. 26. LB Cameron Smith was signed to the 53-man roster.

Nov 15 3:40pm ET

The Minnesota Vikings activated wide receiver Josh Doctson (hamstring) off of Injured Reserve on Friday. He'll be available to play in Week 11 against the Broncos. Doctson has some history with quarterback Kirk Cousins from their time in Washington, but it's a long shot that Doctson will be very involved in the offense this weekend, even with Adam Thielen (hamstring) out another week. Olabisi Johnson and Laquon Treadwell should still see most of the work in three-receiver sets alongside Stefon Diggs.

Minnesota Vikings WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Nov. 15.

Nov 4 3:23pm ET

Minnesota Vikings WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) will be evaluated throughout the week before the team can determine if he'll be activated from the Reserve/Injured list in time for the Week 10 game against the Dallas Cowboys, according to head coach Mike Zimmer Monday, Nov. 4.

From TheHuddle

Oct 30 11:53pm ET

Minnesota Vikings WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) is targeting a Week 10 return against the Dallas Cowboys, which is when he is eligible to come back from the Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Spin: We've seen this movie before. Doctson has a ton of talent, but he cannot stay healthy. As long as Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen are healthy in the Twin Cities there is no reason to pay Doctson any mind.

From TheHuddle

Oct 30 8:30pm ET

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Josh Doctson (hamstring) returned to practice on Wednesday and is eyeing a return in Week 10 against the Cowboys. He's been on the Injured Reserve the last seven weeks but has been designated to return. "Im ready, but thats not up to me," Doctson said. "So Im just trying to do what I can do and show that Im 100 percent on the practice field first. After that, well see." Even when Doctson returns, he'll likely be at least fourth on the receiver depth chart behind Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and Olabisi Johnson. Continue to leave Doctson to the waiver wire.

Minnesota Vikings WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) was designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Oct. 30, and he'll begin practicing.

Sep 26 5:40pm ET

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Josh Doctson (hamstring), who is currently on Injured Reserve, is targeting a Nov. 10 return at the Cowboys, which is the first game he's eligible to return for. Doctson could take Laquon Treadwell's spot as the No. 3 wideout on the roster, but there are no guarantees. He does have familiarity with quarterback Kirk Cousins from their days in Washington, but Minnesota continues to feature run-heavy scripts and Doctson has little hope to become fantasy relevant later this year.

Minnesota Vikings WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) is targeting a Week 10 return from the Reserve/Injured list. That will be his first game he is eligible to return after being placed IR Sept. 12.

The Minnesota Vikings are placing wide receiver Josh Doctson (leg) on the Injured Reserve on Thursday, according to a source. The former Redskins first-round pick will be a candidate to return later this year. Doctson has been a first-round bust, but he was hoping to maybe carve out a role in Minnesota's offense this year with former teammate Kirk Cousins throwing him passes. Time is running out for Doctson in the NFL, and he's well off the fantasy radar.

Minnesota Vikings WR Josh Doctson (leg) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Sept. 12. He would be a candidate to return after Week 8.

Sep 11 6:53pm ET

Minnesota Vikings OG Pat Elflein (knee) and CB Mackensie Alexander (elbow) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 11. TE Tyler Conklin (ribs), CB Mike Hughes (knee), LB Anthony Barr (knee), WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) and CB Mark Fields (groin) were limited during practice. DE Danielle Hunter (hamstring) and DE Everson Griffen (elbow) fully participated in practice.

From TheHuddle

Sep 2 9:10pm ET

The Minnesota Vikings agreed to a one-year deal with former first-rounder Josh Doctson on Monday, filling their wide receiver core after keeping just four at the roster deadline. Doctson, the 22nd pick in the same draft as recently released Laquon Treadwell, hasn't had a great start to his career but did have his best season with Kirk Cousins (35 catches, 205 receiving yards, six touchdowns) in 2017. He likely slides into a depth receiver role to start, but he could work his way into the rotation if Chad Beebe falters. Doctson is only on the radar in ultra-deep leagues, though, as he hasn't yet flashed his first-round potential and would have a low target-share even in the third receiver role.

Free-agent WR Josh Doctson (Redskins) signed a one-year undisclosed contract with the Minnesota Vikings on Monday, Sept. 2.

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson will either be traded or released, according to a source.

Fantasy Spin: The former first-round pick should land with another team quickly. Keep tabs on him as he could be worth a waiver claim in the right situation.

From TheHuddle

Aug 30 12:10pm ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Josh Doctson predictably sat out the team's fourth and final preseason game. As is usually the case at this juncture of the summer, the Redskins utilized the fourth exhibition as a last chance for fringe 53-man wideouts to stake their claim to the last few spots on the depth chart. Darvin Kidsy (six) and Cam Sims (seven) both saw high volumes of targets, but combined to catch just three of them. Doctson's absence from the preseason finale is no surprise, but he also didn't see much game action during the previous three, either. He's well off the draft-day radar, but somebody in Washington's receiving corps is going to have to establish a connection with Case Keenum if the Redskins want to avoid a repeat of what was a dreadful passing attack even before Alex Smith got hurt last season. Maybe Doctson finally steps up in 2019.

Aug 28 12:00am ET

The Washington Redskins would like to trade wide receiver Josh Doctson before Week 1. Doctson is in the final year of his contract and has been mostly injured and extremely inconsistent since being taken in the first round in 2016. It makes sense why head coach Jay Gruden was non-committal when asked if Doctson would make the final 53-man roster. As it stands now, Doctson should be ignored in most fantasy drafts, especially with Case Keenum under center. Perhaps a change of scenery will ignite him. If Doctson departs or is cut, it would be good news for the likes of Trey Quinn, Cam Sims and rookies Terry McLaurin and Kelvin Harmon.

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden was non-committal on whether wide receiver Josh Doctson would make the final roster. Doctson will not play in the preseason finale on Thursday either. The team has been high on receivers Paul Richardson, Trey Quinn and rookies Terry McLaurin and Kelvin Harmon. Cam Sims and Robert Davis missed most of last year with injuries, but the club is also high on them. Special teams play might dictate the final decisions. Doctson, a first-round pick in 2016, has been plagued by injuries and has caught only 81 passes in three seasons. It remains to be seen if the 'Skins will keep Doctson around, but in a weak offense, he won't be worth rostering in standard-sized leagues even if they keep him around.

Aug 19 12:10pm ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Josh Doctson has seen just one target in the team's first two preseason games thus far. This isn't anything new, as projected veteran starters are routinely eased into action, so it isn't worth reading much into. Still, Doctson doesn't have the shiniest track record of production as Washington's number-one wide receiver, and the Redskins' two quarterbacks (Case Keenum, Dwayne Haskins) are each in their first year with the team. It makes sense for a known quantity such as Jordan Reed to take it easy in the preseason, but it's at least a little bit surprising not to see Doctson get more work with either quarterback. In any case, he's on the fantasy back-burner when it comes to draft day.

From RotoBaller

Aug 9 4:10pm ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Darvin Kidsy hauled in five of his seven targets for 86 yards in Thursday's preseason game. If any team's wide receiver depth chart should be open for auditions, it's Washington's. Their most notable holdovers from 2018 are Josh Doctson and Paul Richardson, neither of whom were able to produce consistently last season. That said, a handful of targets in one preseason game does not mean Kidsy has the inside track at gaining a significant role in the Redskins offense. He is worth monitoring going forward, though, because another game like Thursday's could start to open some eyes. Washington's passing game as a whole should be avoided in fantasy drafts until at least one of their pass-catchers proves otherwise.
