Jay Gruden said he anticipates Derrius Guice doing individual work in OTAs and then joining the team full-go in training camp. "I think Derrius will be fine," Gruden said.

Fantasy Impact:

Guice has undergone a couple of clean-up procedures since his ACL surgery last year and the team recently re-signed Adrian Peterson to a two-year deal. Guice is in the RB3 mix given his uncertain health and the presence of Peterson.

Washington re-signs RB Adrian Peterson to a two-year deal

The Redskins are re-signing RB Adrian Peterson to a 2-year deal worth $8M, sources tell me. His career resurgence continues in Washington.

Fantasy Impact:

This signing throws some cold water on Derrius Guice's 2019 outlook as he comes back from a torn ACL. Washington is giving Peterson starter-caliber money, so it wouldn't be surprising if he led this backfield in touches again this season.

Jets to sign WR Jamison Crowder to a three-year deal

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

Jets are giving WR Jamison Crowder a 3-year, $28.5 million deal that includes $17 million guaranteed, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

The soon-to-be 26-year-old Crowder had back-to-back finishes in the top 32 in 2016 and 2017 but struggled to a No. 87 finish (PPR) last year due to injury. His arrival should help to take the pressure off of Robby Anderson, but he'll be working the same part of the field as Quincy Enunwa. New HC Adam Gase has plenty of experience working with good slot receivers given his time in Miami with Jarvis Landry. Crowder's arrival is good news for QB Sam Darnold.

Redskins promote Kevin O'Connell to OC

Tuesday, January 29, 2019, 5:58pm - [Full Article]

The Washington Redskins announced on Tuesday that passing game coordinator Kevin O’Connell has been promoted to offensive coordinator. O’Connell has spent the past two seasons as the quarterbacks coach in 2017 and the passing game coordinator in 2018 for the Redskins.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say in a corresponding move, Matt Cavanaugh will now be the club’s senior offensive assistant. Cavanaugh has spent the last four seasons with Washington and the past two seasons as the offensive coordinator.

Redskins planning to be without QB Alex Smith for 2019

The Redskins are planning as if they won’t have QB Alex Smith next season, sources say.

Related players: Colt McCoy

Fantasy Impact:

Nothing is official yet, but the team believes Smith will miss the entire 2019 season with his broken leg issues and are acting accordingly. If he’s ready, they will be pleasantly surprised. As we reported last week, there may not be a lot of great targets for the team in free agency, mostly because of cost.

Redskins optimistic QB Alex Smith returns for 2019

Les Carpenter on Twitter - [Full Article]

Bruce Allen in his first remarks in months is asked about Alex Smith" "We're optimistic, if anyone can come back it's Alex...we'll see."

Related players: Colt McCoy

Fantasy Impact:

He will not say the Redskins are looking for another quarterback, the rest of the tweet said. We reported earlier Tuesday from ESPN there may not be a lot of options in play for the Skins at QB anyway, mostly because of cost.

Redskins Beat: Team may not have many free agent options at QB

Tuesday, January 22, 2019, 11:23am

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Washington Redskins will struggle to find a good fit in free agency for one of their biggest needs: quarterback. With Alex Smith’s future uncertain for 2019 and beyond after a compound leg fracture, the Redskins must decide if they want to pursue more quarterback help via free agency or the draft.

They do have Colt McCoy under contract, but they need more than just one healthy quarterback. Smith’s contract makes him uncuttable until after the 2020 season; he has cap hits of $20.4 million this year and $21.4 million next season.

Fantasy Impact:

The story said the upper level group of Nick Foles, Joe Flacco and Ryan Tannehill won't be an option because of cost. And, QBs like Tyrod Taylor, Teddy Bridgewater, Jacoby Brissett and Blake Bortles may not be in options because the Skins can't afford to get in a salary battle if any are hot commodities. Brissett would have to be a trade option, but we reported recently the Colts won't just give him away. Low-cost players like Josh Johnson or Ryan Fitzpatrick could be options if Smith won't be ready to play this season.

Redskins TE Vernon Davis doubtful for Week 17

Friday, December 28, 2018, 8:34pm

Redskins Injury Report

Vernon Davis (concussion) has been listed as doubtful for Week 17.

Fantasy Impact:

With Jordan Reed on IR, Josh Doctson questionable, and Davis unlikely to play, the Redskins are woefully short on options outside of Jamison Crowder. We'd do our best to avoid them all, but if you have to pick one, Crowder looks like a WR3 to us.
