Washington Post - [Full Article]

The Josh Doctson watch continued with a bit of confusion Tuesday afternoon.

Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said before practice that the wide receiver would not practice due to lingering heel soreness, but Doctson was on the field going through full team drills Tuesday afternoon. The heel didn’t seem to bother him as he ran routes and played through contact. Gruden had previously denied a report that Doctson had his heel drained, but acknowledged for the first time that it was an issue for the third-year player.

Fantasy Impact:

The original announcement was a shoulder injury, but Gruden detailed that it was a bruised shoulder and that his heel was also stepped on. Doctson has done individual work but hasn’t practiced in team drills because the bruised heel has prevented him from “getting his shoe on,” the coach said.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Doctson should start in 3-WR sets in Washington with Paul Richardson also on the outside and Jamison Crowder manning the slot. Doctson saw double-digit fantasy points in four of the final seven games of the season last year.

Fantasy Downside
In those four double-digit fantasy games down the stretch, Doctson only averaged 2.8 receptions, making him very touchdown dependent. Plus, Jordan Reed appears to be healthy this preseason and when he's healthy the other receivers get far fewer targets in this offense. Doctson averaged six targets per game without Reed but only 2.4 with him on the field. Reed takes his red zone looks away too.

2018 Bottom Line

Docston is a wild card late-round pick that has boom-or-bust potential which is attractive for a best-ball pick at his ADP. In redraft leagues, however, he's likely to be a weekly headache. He's a deep sleeper in those formats.
