Jay Gruden: Doctson vs. Pryor will be a 'hot hand' situation

“We’ll see how it goes moving forward,” Washington coach Jay Gruden said. “Right now we wanted to get Josh in there a little bit more and see how he did. Josh did some good things, some things we need to clean up, same with Terrelle every week. Just going to continue to coach those guys up, try to play the hot hand, play the guys who are fresh and go from there.”

Fantasy Impact: 

The dreaded 'hot hand' coachspeak. Lovely. Pryor has been a disappointment for fantasy owners this season after being a trendy offseason pick. He only has one game of over seven fantasy points and was outproduced by Doctson last Week. Doctson had more targets (5 to 4), receptions (3 to 2), and receiving yards (39 to 14). Doctson was also in on more of the offensive snaps (54 to 30) than Pryor.

It appears the tide is turning in Washington, and our fantasy ranks this week reflect that. We have Doctson ranked ahead of Pryor in both standard (No. 33 vs. No. 48) and PPR (No. 36 vs. No. 47) leagues. In fact, Doctson is our highest-ranked Washington WR period.
