Josh Doctson Fantasy Football News 2019

11:12am EST 12/16/18

Redskins WR Josh Doctson (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Jaguars. Between that matchup and having Josh Johnson under center, Doctson is an extremely shaky fantasy play.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jaguars. He returned to practice on Friday but still needs to gain final clearance. We’ll see if he’s active on Sunday morning, but Doctson is a weak fantasy play in a tough matchup and with Josh Johnson under center.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden said Monday that WR Josh Doctson is in the concussion protocol. There was no announcement from the team during or after yesterday's loss to the Giants. Regardless, Doctson is now iffy for this weekend's game against the Jaguars. Of course, he shouldn't be in your fantasy plans anyway.

Washington WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) was ruled out of Sunday's game vs. Tampa Bay. Crowder hasn't suited up since Week 5, and his absence boosts the deep league value of Maurice Harris and Josh Doctson.

Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Panthers. WRs Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) and Josh Doctson (heel) are active and figure to serve as the team’s top 2 WRs. They’re tough to like as more than WR4s, though. We’re expecting TE Jordan Reed to be busy today.

Redskins WRs Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee), Jamison Crowder (ankle) and Josh Doctson (heel) are all listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Panthers. We'll see who's able to give it a go around noon ET on Sunday, but none of these guys are reliable fantasy options. TE Jordan Reed could be busy this weekend.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson (heel) is inactive for tonight's game against the Saints. WR Maurice Harris will start in his place but isn't a viable fantasy target. Jordan Reed, Jamison Crowder and Chris Thompson should control targets for Washington in this one.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson (heel) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Saints. He didn't practice all week, though, so don't bank on him playing. Doctson's absence would mean a few extra targets to spread between Jamison Crowder, Paul Richardson, Jordan Reed and Chris Thompson.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson missed his 2nd straight practice Friday with a heel injury. We don't have any other details, but he's not looking like a good bet to play against the Saints on Monday night. Doctson has averaged just 4.3 targets through 3 games, so his absence wouldn't make a huge fantasy impact.

Washington HC Jay Gruden said Saturday that his offense's spread-it-around style might make it tough for WR Josh Doctson to compile huge stats, according to ESPN's John Keim. But Gruden also said that Doctson will be "most dangerous" in the red zone. That's music to the ears of fantasy football owners, and it's not at all far-fetched. ESPN's Mike Clay points out that Doctson ranked 7th in the league last year with 17 end-zone targets. That came despite Doctson only reaching 50% playing time once over the 1st 5 games. The 3rd-year wideout brings durability risk but also big upside from his WR51 July ADP.

Washington started WR Josh Doctson at the "X" spot in place of Terrelle Pryor at Philadelphia on Monday night. HC Jay Gruden had spoken recently of wanting to get Doctson more involved. ESPN's John Keim indicated that coaches believe Doctson is the most talented wideout on the roster. He has struggled with durability and has had trouble getting onto the field this year. Pryor garnered 11 targets in the Week 1 loss to Philadelphia and looked like the guy Washington wanted to become a lead target. But he drew just 4, 4, 5 and 5 looks over the next 4 games and hasn't topped 3 catches since the opener. We'll be interested to see the final playing-time numbers and what Gruden has to say about the WR corps after the game.

Update: Pryor played just 1 of 30 offensive snaps in the 1st half. He wound up playing 30 of 64 for the game. Doctson played 54, 2nd behind Jamison Crowder (58) among Washington wideouts. Docton's worth a pickup ahead of the Week 8 clash with Dallas.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Rams. He went target-less in the opener and shouldn’t be in Week 2 fantasy lineups.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Rams after a limited week of practice. He went target-less in the opener and was never a Week 2 fantasy option.

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.
