Season Outlook

It will be interesting to see if the Redskins' offense will be able to fill the voids that Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson left this offseason. QB Kirk Cousins was phenomenal last year, throwing for 4,917 yards while collecting the third most completions among QBs with 406. Cousins has shown he is more than capable of finding the open receiver and racking up big fantasy numbers. The Redskins management brought in former Browns receiver Terrelle Pryor to their receiving corps and he figures to be a key contributor in the passing game. Slot receiver Jamison Crowder, all-pro TE Jordan Reed and 2016's first-round draft pick Josh Doctson to carry the remainder of the load in Jay Gruden's vertical offense scheme. Pryor was converted from QB to WR last season, leading the Browns in receiving yards (1,007) on 77 receptions. Crowder posted career-highs in yards (847) and a team-high seven touchdowns last season. He's expected to work out of the slot and occasionally stretch the right side of the field the right side of the field. Gruden has a variety of passing combinations that utilizes Cousins' strong and accurate arm. Gruden and offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh will continue to design plays in a West Coast offense that best suits Cousins. Mixing in these plays will open up the field for one of the leagues best tight ends - Jordan Reed. In the 11 games Reed started, the Redskins averaged 314 yards through the air. From Week 13 until Week 17, the team averaged just 259 passing yards. Reed will be drafted in the early rounds and possesses high upside in touchdowns. Washington's run game was non-existent all season-long, with Rob Kelley receiving the lions share of the load and averaged a lowly 46.9 yards per game. Matt Jones and Chris Thompson failed to break the 500 rushing yards mark a season ago and aren't ideal fantasy options.

Player Outlooks & Draft Analysis


Case Keenum

Keenum should be able to post similar stats to what we saw in Minnesota last season, and makes for a late round or waiver wire option as a short-term or bye week fill in. Projecting him much beyond the next season or two is difficult.

Alex Smith

Smith seems an ideal fit for Gruden's system, but there are lots of question marks at the receiver position for Washington. Jamison Crowder is one of the better young slot receivers in the league and the addition of Paul Richardson this offseason should also help, but Jordan Reed always struggles to stay healthy and third year wideout Josh Doctson has yet to validate his first round selection. The addition of rookie running back Derrius Guice should help, and Chris Thompson has proven to be a dynamic threat out of the backfield when given the opportunity. With a somewhat suspect defense and a pass heavy attack, there's huge opportunity here from a fantasy perspective for Smith, but the supporting cast is a bit worrisome.
