Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He was on the injury report with the hammy last week but practiced in full all 3 days. He played just 20 offensive snaps and wasn't targeted in the loss to the Eagles. Doctson shouldn't be anywhere near fantasy lineups right now.

Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. He injured the hip in practice this week and appears to be in legitimate danger of missing Week 1. "Anyone questionable is a concern," HC Jay Gruden said Friday. We'll find out Crowder's status by noon ET on Sunday, but he'll be a risky fantasy play if active. If not, Josh Doctson would step in as Washington's #2 WR. Ryan Grant would handle slot duties.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) returned to practice on Wednesday, although he was limited to individual drills only. He'd been sidelined since August 6. "I'm good," he said after the workout. "It feels good." HC Jay Gruden wouldn't say whether Doctson will play in Washington's 2nd preseason game. He's still the favorite to open the season as the #3 WR but needs a healthy few weeks leading up to Week 1.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson is "day-to-day" with a "slight pull" of his hamstring, HC Jay Gruden said Monday. This doesn't sound like anything significant, but Doctson needs to stay on the field after missing most of his rookie season with Achilles trouble. We'll see how long the hammy keeps him sidelined. Doctson is slated to open the season as Washington's #3 WR behind Terrelle Pryor and Jamison Crowder.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson has been working at Pierre Garcon's old "Z" receiver spot. “[Pierre] was probably the best route runner I’ve ever seen in person,” Doctson said back in May. “So just watching him and how he broke down, full speed, was just, it’s just incredible to watch as a receiver. I just get excited about that so just coming out, trying to do what he did in terms of running his routes is what I’m trying to master.” The "Z" receiver tends to be a possession-type, running high-percentage routes near the line of scrimmage. Garcon averaged a 73-857-4 line on 110 targets as the "Z" in HC Jay Gruden's offense over the past 3 seasons. Doctson has a lot of work to do to earn that type of volume, but his progress will be worth keeping a close eye on this summer.

Washington HC Jay Gruden said he wants a larger role for WR Jamison Crowder this season. The Duke product saw 99 targets in 2016. “We’ll utilize Jamison and try to get him more involved,” Gruden said via ESPN. “He’s an excellent player, dynamic player. He just continues to prove every day, why we like him so much. He can run just about anything you ask him to run... He gets himself open because he’s got a great feel. He’s got quickness in and out of his breaks.” Washington lost DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon over the spring and replaced them with Terrelle Pryor and Josh Doctson. It’s a positive development for Crowder, who will also see time at punt returner. The 3rd-year man is a strong PPR WR3 target.

Washington HC Jay Gruden told reporters Monday that WR Josh Doctson will be "full for everything" when the team hits the field for OTAs. That's big news for a 2nd-year wideout who missed basically all of his 1st offseason while dealing with Achilles' tendon trouble. Doctson faces big opportunity on a 2017 offense that lost DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon. A healthy summer figures to play a big role in whether Doctson can take advantage.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden revealed that WR Josh Doctson (Achilles) still hasn't been cleared to run. He missed all but 2 games of his rookie season, and it sounds like doctors haven't even pinpointed the exact problem. "We’re going to take it slow with him," Gruden said. "I think month of February, I think is very important for his progress and then we’ll see where he’s at.” DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon are both headed for free agency in March, so Doctson could find a clear path to a starting job this summer. But he's gotta get healthy. We'll track his progress.

The Redskins have placed WR Josh Doctson (Achilles) on IR. He's been bothered by this Achilles issue since the offseason, and it'll result in a lost rookie year for the 1st-round pick. He remains a strong stash in dynasty leagues but shouldn't be on any redraft rosters.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles) is out for Sunday’s game against the Browns. It looks like he aggravated that Achilles issue in pregame warmups last week. The rookie isn’t worth rostering in redraft leagues.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden admitted on Wednesday that he's "very concerned" about WR Josh Doctson's Achilles problem. The rookie was expected to play last week but was a late scratch after pregame warmups. There's reportedly no new damage to the Achilles, but Doctson is still experiencing pain. He's not worth rostering in redraft leagues.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson is inactive for today's game against the Giants. It's unclear if he's a healthy scratch or if the Achilles issue he dealt with for much of the offseason started acting up again. The rookie is only worth stashing in deep redraft leagues (and, of course, keeper and dynasty leagues).

5:52pm EDT 9/12/16

Washington rookie WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') is officially active for tonight's opener against the Steelers. How much he actually plays will be anyone's guess. The 1st-round pick should be nowhere near fantasy football lineups, but it's a positive step that he's at least well enough to be available.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Steelers. He got in a full practice on Saturday and should play. But the rookie figures to operate as Washington's #4 WR behind DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder. Doctson isn't a Week 1 fantasy option.

Washington rookie WR Josh Doctson took the practice field Monday for the 1st time in 3 months, thanks to his sore left Achilles' tendon. The Washington Times reports that he's expected to be healthy enough to play in the Monday night opener, but Doctson concedes that he doesn't expect to be football-ready. “My expectations right now is just to get back to my feel for the game,” Doctson said. “I’ve been out three months. I’m a rookie going against guys like [Josh] Norman and [Bashaud] Breeland. I’ve got to get back in the mix, back in the rhythm, just being the finesse guy I am on the field.” Doctson's OK to roster in redraft leagues of moderate depth, but you'll need to be patient with him. One of Washington's veteran starters on the outside might need to falter badly or get hurt to let the rookie into the lineup.

The Redskins have activated WR Josh Doctson (Achilles) from the PUP list. It doesn't necessarily mean he'll be ready for Week 1, but it means Washington expects him to be ready at some point before Week 7. Doctson missed most of the offseason with injuries and will be no higher than 4th on the depth chart whenever he gets healthy. He's not worth rostering in redraft leagues right now.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden expects WR Josh Doctson (Achilles) to be available come Week 1. That's encouraging, but the rookie won't be a fantasy option then. He's missed most of the spring, all of training camp and the first 2 preseason games. He's a long shot to play in the 3rd exhibition. Doctson isn't worth drafting in most leagues but will be worth monitoring as a potential waiver-wire add later this year.

Redskins insider Mike Jones has WR Josh Doctson (Achilles) opening the season on the PUP list in his latest 53-man roster projection. That'd cost the rookie the first 6 games. Doctson missed most of the spring and all of training camp so far with first a foot and then an Achilles injury. Last we heard, he was still in a walking boot. Perhaps Doctson carves out a role later on this year, but he won't be an early-season fantasy factor. DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder will open as Washington's top 3 WRs.
