Josh Doctson Injury Updates

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.

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.

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 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.
