Washington Examiner beat writer John Keim talked about the Redskins WRs in a recent article:

There will be competition to start opposite Pierre Garcon among Santana Moss, Leonard Hankerson and Josh Morgan. But both Morgan and Hankerson are still on the mend giving Moss an edge. Morgan did practice in the spring, but lacked explosiveness.

Moss looked a little more spry in the spring, having lost 15 pounds. I’m not saying he’ll suddenly be making big plays downfield anymore, but he should show more burst than last season and get more YAC – with the number of short routes and smoke routes they send him on, leading to good yards after the catch, he should do much better than last year’s 4.1 YAC (he had 4.8 in 2010).

Fantasy Impact: 

We currently rank Garcon 33rd among WRs and Moss at 44th. Clearly, these are guys you can get in the mid-to-late part of the draft for depth. Of course, there are a lot of unknowns with rookie Robert Griffin III at QB, but the upside is there for someone to emerge.
