The Redskins have re-signed WR Santana Moss to a 1-year deal.  Turning 35 in June, Moss is coming off a 42-452-2 line.  He figures to serve as Washington's 4th or 5th WR in 2014 and won't be a fantasy option.

Redskins WR Leonard Hankerson needs surgery on the LCL injury he suffered this past weekend and is done for the season.  Hankerson turned in an uneven 3rd season.  He caught 5 balls in 3 games but finished another 4 with 2 or fewer.  He matched a career high with 3 TDs, but 2 of those came in the opener.  Don't be surprised in Washington looks to upgrade its #2 WR spot this offseason.  Hankerson isn't getting it done.  WRs Santana Moss, Josh Morgan and Aldrick Robinson figure to fill in for Hankerson by committee the rest of the way.  None of them is a recommended fantasy add.

Redskins HC Mike Shanahan said that WR Leonard Hankerson might need surgery to repair the LCL injury he suffered on Sunday.  It sounds like the team is still awaiting more test results and/or a 2nd opinion.  Either way, Hankerson is clearly dealing with a significant injury and will likely miss multiple weeks.  He can be dropped in fantasy leagues.  WRs Santana Moss, Josh Morgan and Aldrick Robinson could all see increased playing time with Hankerson out, but none of those guys are worth starting consideration in fantasy.

Redskins HC Mike Shanahan was impressed by WR Leonard Hankerson's 2013 debut, especially his route-running.  “He needs some playing time," Shanny said. "He’s got to have some consistency, like he did [Monday] night to make those plays. He did a great job in the red zone. He ran an excellent route. What a lot of people don’t see is the route’s he is running and when he doesn’t get the ball and he’s open. That’s what you are impressed with.”  Hankerson finished with 80 yards and 2 scores on 5 grabs against the Eagles.  Although WR Josh Morgan drew the start opposite WR Pierre Garcon, Hankerson played more snaps than Morgan (44 to 33).  His 6 targets were 3rd among the WR corps, behind Garcon and Santana Moss. Outside of Garcon, Hankerson has the most fantasy upside among Redskins WRs.  We're not ready to call him a starting option yet, but he's certainly worth monitoring.

Washington WR Santana Moss has accepted a pay cut to stay with the team. He reportedly had $2 million in salary for 2013 converted to incentives. The move puts the team about $3 million under the salary cap. Moss caught just 41 passes and saw only 61 targets in his first year with Robert Griffin III. Heading into his age-34 season, Moss doesn't present much for fantasy owners but a WR who will pop up for an occasional solid game. Those outings tend to be driven by a big play. The unpredictable nature of those games further decreases his value.

Redskins WR Santana Moss has been medically cleared after sustaining a concussion back in Week 9.  He's scored 5 times this season but is averaging just 2.7 catches and 35 yards per game.  Moss is just a fantasy flier against the Eagles this weekend.

Redskins WR Santana Moss sustained a concussion during Sunday's game against the Panthers.  He'll have 2 weeks to get cleared with Washington off this coming week.  Moss has 5 TDs in his last 7 games but is still just a flier in fantasy.  He hasn't topped 4 catches all year.

Redskins WR Pierre Garcon (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. No surprise here. Garcon still isn't able to run at full speed, and he's nowhere near a lock to be ready coming out of Washington's Week 10 bye.  Leonard Hankerson and Josh Morgan will continue to start out wide for the 'Skins, although Santana Moss has been the team's most productive receiver lately.

With a week of practice in the books, Leonard Hankerson appears to be in the lead for the Redskins' #2 WR spot.  ESPN.com's Dan Graziano guesses that Hankerson and Garcon will be the starters on the outside, with Santana Moss manning the slot.  WR Josh Morgan could be used as a fill-in at all 3 spots.  This situation is still unsettled, but we like Hankerson's odds of winning a starting job.  He has the best combination of size (6'2, 205 pounds) and athleticism among the trio behind Garcon.  And insider Rich Tandler notes that Hankerson is "holding onto the ball better [and] looks more fluid as he runs his routes" than he did last year.  Hankerson would be an upside bench stash in fantasy if he's named the #2 receiver.

Redskins WR Santana Moss seems to have made quite a climb this offseason.  A few months ago, there were whispers that his roster spot was in danger.  Those were squelched when he showed up to OTAs in tip-top shape.  Now it sounds like he's still in the mix for a starting spot.  ESPN's Dan Graziano was in attendance for minicamp and "came away believing [the Redskins] have the slimmed-down Moss projected as the starting wide receiver opposite Pierre Garcon."  We still think the 33-year-old Moss is better off in a slot role, while Leonard Hankerson possesses the size and athleticism to excel on the outside.  We'll have to see how the situation shakes out in training camp.
