Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles) is expected to miss another 1-2 weeks, according to ESPN's John Keim. The rookie has been sidelined since May 25, missing tons of valuable practice reps. Keim adds that "there's still hope" that Doctson will be ready for the season opener, but he'll be no higher than 4th on the depth chart. He's not worth rostering in standard-sized redraft leagues.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles) was spotted in a walking boot on Wednesday. The team claims the rookie hasn't suffered a setback and that the boot is precautionary. That may be true, but Doctson has now missed most of the spring and the 1st week of training camp. He's a long shot for early-season fantasy value and shouldn't be drafted as more than a late-round bench stash.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson was placed on the active/PUP list to begin training camp. He already missed a bunch of time this spring with foot and Achilles issues. A healthy Doctson has the talent to push for a significant role, but he's expected to open the season as Washington's 4th WR. The rookie is just a late-round bench stash in redraft leagues.

ESPN's John Keim told colleague Mike Clay that WR Josh Doctson is "unlikely to work much in 3-WR sets" this season. His rookie-year role will be as a backup to DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon. Those 2 will operate primarily as the outside receivers, and Washington likes Jamison Crowder in the slot. Doctson won't be useable in fantasy football if he's 4th on the depth chart. We wouldn't rule out the possibility that he takes over Garcon's spot later in the season, though.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson injured his foot in Wednesday's OTA session.  X-rays came back negative, but HC Jay Gruden said his rookie will be out "at least" the rest of this week.  This comes after Doctson missed time in May with a sore Achilles.  Neither issue sounds like a long-term concern, but he's missing valuable practice reps.  Doctson doesn't figure to open the season any higher than 3rd on Washington's depth chart.

The Redskins selected WR Josh Doctson with the 22nd pick of the 2016 NFL Draft. The biggest knock on Doctson is that he’s relatively old, turning 24 in December. But he checks every other box. The TCU product tallied 143 catches, 2,344 yards and 25 TDs over the past 2 seasons. He averaged a ridiculous 7.9 catches, 132.7 yards and 1.4 TDs per game in 2015 before missing the final 3 outings with a broken left wrist. Then he blew up the Combine, posting a 4.50-second 40 time and 41-inch vertical at 6’2, 202 pounds. It earned him a SPARQ score in the 94th percentile among WRs. That size and athleticism — plus Doctson’s high-end ball skills — give him a good shot to be an immediate contributor, especially in the red zone. He’ll likely slot in as Washington’s #3 WR this season, although he could push Pierre Garcon out of the starting lineup. Garcon and DeSean Jackson are both free agents next offseason, so Doctson should definitely be starting by 2017.
