Redskins HC Jay Gruden confirmed that Trey Quinn has "taken over" as the team's slot receiver. "He’s confident, he’s quick, he’s got strong hands, he’s physical, [and] he’s tough," Gruden added. Quinn has been talked up by Gruden multiple times this offseason and has a real shot to lead Redskins WRs in targets this year. Former Redskins slot receiver Jamison Crowder averaged 5.9 targets per game across the past 4 seasons -- a full-season pace of 94 looks that would have ranked 34th among WRs in 2018. Quinn appeared in just 3 games as a rookie last year but racked up 114 grabs in his final college season at SMU. He's a nice late-round target in PPR drafts.
The Redskins have placed WR Trey Quinn on IR with his ankle injury. The rookie ends up playing just 3 games this season but caught 9 of 10 targets for 75 yards and a score in them. With WR Jamison Crowder set to hit free agency this offseason, Quinn could win Washington's slot receiver job next year. He's worth stashing in deeper dynasty leagues.
Redskins WR Trey Quinn (ankle) is inactive for tonight's game against the Eagles. WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) is active for the 1st time since Week 5. He should step back in as Washington's slot receiver but should only be in consideration in 1-game DFS contests.
Washington selected WR Trey Quinn with the final pick of the NFL Draft. After starting his college career at LSU, Quinn finished at SMU and led the team in receptions (114), receiving yards (1,236) and TD catches (13) in 2017 -- ahead of 2nd-rounder Courtland Sutton. In Washington, Quinn (5'11 and 203 pounds) figures to be blocked by slot WR Jamison Crowder, though Crowder is headed for unrestricted free agency next spring. Quinn's an intriguing late stash for dynasty rookie drafts of 5+ rounds.
