  Football Team | Dyami Brown getting time in the slot    Thu Jul 29, 11:10 PM

Washington Football Team WR Dyami Brown has reportedly logged significant time in the slot during early practices after spending most of his college career at North Carolina on the perimeter, according to Sam Fortier of the Washington Post.

Footballguys view: Curtis Samuel is sitting with a groin injury that he was dealing with in June in a troubling sign. If he has trouble getting up to speed, Brown could be ready for a bigger role in the offense sooner than later with this cross-training under his belt. Adam Humphries is also riffing well with Ryan Fitzpatrick now that they are reunited, so he'll also figure into the picture in the slot.

  Football Team | Logan Thomas extended    Tue Jul 27, 09:02 AM

Washington Football Team TE Logan Thomas signed a three-year extension Tuesday, July 27. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Thomas came into the league as a quarterback coming out of Virginia Tech in 2014. He's big and athletic and has made the transition to tight end quite well. He could be a favorite target of QB Ryan Fitzpatrick in 2021 and should be considered a low-end TE1 for Fantasy GMs.

  Football Team | Peyton Barber drops weight    Fri Jul 16, 10:20 PM

Washington Football Team RB Peyton Barber slimmed down this offseason, according to head coach Ron Rivera. 'He's playing fast and he's doing a heck of a job for us,' Rivera said.

Footballguys view: Barber is playing for a roster spot so it makes sense that he's motivated. He'll have to beat out mighty mite UDFA Jaret Patterson and Lamar Miller's comeback attempt to make it and maybe vulture a few short touchdowns from Antonio Gibson.

  Football Team | RB McKissic Added Weight    Fri Jul 16, 03:03 PM

Rhiannon Walker, from The Athletic, reports Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic added weight this offseason because he didn't want to be pigeonholed as a receiving back. "All training camp, I just wanted to show them that I'll do all of that," McKissic said. "Not to limit myself to just be a one-run type back. That means a lot to me to be able to get those type of runs in games to be a guy that's 198 pounds.

Footballguys view: McKissic caught 80 passes last year as a relief-valve receiver but this year his role could be more limited. There has been plenty of talk this offseason about getting Antonio Gibson more work as a receiver, and that cuts into McKissic's workload directly. If Gibson were to miss time, it sounds like McKissic has added the weight to handle a larger workload - as a runner and not just as a receiver - if need be. He's likely the primary backup to Gibson in 2021.

  Football Team | QB Fitzpatrick Says Offense Will Be 'Tough To Defend'    Mon Jul 12, 01:07 PM

JP Finlay, from NBC Sports Washington, reports how Washington QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is looking forward to spreading the ball around the field in 2021. "The biggest thing with his offense, is we're able to spread the ball around to everybody and get everybody involved. It's going to be a tough offense to defend just because of all the pieces we have." Fitzpatrick said.

Footballguys view: Washington has a ton of weapons in the passing attack, and Fitzpatrick is ready to attack a defense at all levels of the field. He's the perfect type of quarterback to take advantage of the spread formation and the collection of receivers. Add in RB Antonio Gibson, a talented pass-catcher and reliable runner, and you can see how Washington can put up points. Fantasy GMs want a piece of this offense with guys like Gibson and WR Terry McLaurin as two top targets at their respective positions.

  Football Team | J.D. McKissic made most of touches    Sat Jul 10, 12:29 PM

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic finished fifth among running backs in 2020 with an average of 5.8 yards per touch.

Footballguys view: McKissic had a whopping 80 receptions last year working as a slot option and receiver out of the backfield. With the offseason addition of Curtis Samuel, who plays in the same area of the field, McKissic's role this season is in question. There's also buzz about starting RB Antonio Gibson getting some more work as a pass catcher in 2021. McKissic is a RB5/deep flex play with these question marks, but he is getting drafted at RB41 (8.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Football Team | WR Humphries Could See Around 60 Targets    Fri Jul 9, 02:35 PM

JP Finlay, from NBC Sports Washington, speculates Washington WR Adam Humphries could see "around 60" targets this year.

Footballguys view: Humphries will get work as the no.3 receiver behind Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel in 2021. With QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, Humphries could see more work than some think and he will be a trusted target. However, will it be enough to be fantasy relevant? Probably not. With TE Logan Thomas, RBs Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissic plus those aforementioned wide receivers Humphrpies is pretty far down the pecking order in Washington.

  Football Team | Terry McLaurin improving his game    Wed Jun 30, 10:00 PM

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin said he worked with retired WR Doug Baldwin this offseason to improve his release against physical corners.

Footballguys view: McLaurin has already shown great skill as a wide receiver over the last two seasons with subpar quarterback play. He's finished as a WR2 for Fantasy GMs over the last two seasons (no.24, no.20) but we think this year he gets to WR1 levels. McLaurin has potential to be a top-10 fantasy receiver in 2021 and is an every-week starter with upside to win your week.

  Football Team | Precision part of Ryan Fitzpatrick's game in 2020    Wed Jun 30, 02:34 PM

Washington Football Team QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was on target on 79.9 percent of his pass attempts last season as a member of the Miami Dolphins, according to Pro Football Reference. His on-target rate ranked sixth in the league among quarterbacks with at least 100 pass attempts.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick has taken his talents from South Beach to our nation's capitol. With Washington, Fitzpatrick's precision is going to be highlighted as well with some fine weapons around him. He's a streamer for Fantasy GMs who can fill in (likely admirably) when your regular starter is on a bye. You can get him late in your drafts with a current ADP of QB26 (14.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Football Team | Antonio Gibson showing growth    Thu Jun 24, 01:53 PM

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson has displayed growth and maturity in offseason practices, and it has the team's coaches excited about his -- and the offense's -- prospects for the 2021 season. 'You can tell he's matured, got a better feel and understanding,' Washington coach Ron Rivera said of Gibson during minicamp this month. 'Those natural instincts that you look for, the intangibles that guys that have been playing the positions their whole career naturally have. You start to see those come to light with Antonio. It's exciting.'

Footballguys view: Gibson was a converted wide receiver who is still learning the nuances of the running back position. He's got speed, vision and instincts with the rock and can make defenders miss with power or moves. Washington's running back coach, Randy Jordan, says Gibson could catch more passes this season. Gibson's talent and role within the offense make him an RB2 with upside for Fantasy GMs.

  Football Team | More catches for Antonio Gibson?    Wed Jun 23, 09:03 PM

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson has untapped potential as a receiver, according to running backs coach Randy Jordan. 'I think the biggest thing for him is utilizing his ability to catch the ball because he has caught the ball in college,' Jordan said.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Gibson is a converted wide receiver who only caught 36 passes last year for Washington in 14 games. He could push for around 50 receptions this year, especially in a 17-game season. Gibson can be the centerpiece of Washington's offense and his workload and natural talent make him an RB2 with upside in any format.

  Football Team | Kyle Allen a distant No. 3    Sat Jun 19, 08:39 PM

Washington Football Team QB Kyle Allen (ankle) 'hasn't entered the conversation' with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and QB Taylor Heinicke when it comes to the quarterback competition, according to John Keim of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Washington gave up a fifth round pick for Allen last year, but he's not a sure thing to make the team this year. At worst, teams will have Allen on speed dial if they need an emergency quarterback during the season.

  Football Team | Taylor Heinicke in the mix to start?    Sat Jun 19, 08:26 PM

Washington Football Team QB Taylor Heinicke 'pushed' QB Ryan Fitzpatrick during minicamp, according to head coach Ron Rivera, and Rivera said Heinicke will likely receive some work with the first-team offense when training camp begins.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick is more of a "gamer" than a practice player, so it's believable that Heinicke is pushing him. This could become a bigger deal if it persists through camp, and we know that Fitzpatrick has trouble holding onto a starting job. If Heinicke continues to impress, the leash on Fitzpatrick during the season could be shorter.

  Football Team | Ryan Fitzpatrick for long haul?    Fri Jun 18, 01:53 PM

Washington Football Team QB Ryan Fitzpatrick could be a longer-term solution, according to head coach Ron Rivera. 'There's nothing that says Ryan Fitzpatrick can't be the guy for a while,' Rivera recently told the Washington Post.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick hasn't shown signs of decline in his play, but he is a risk-taker who could frustrate Rivera if he commits too many unforced errors. Taylor Heinecke has had a good spring, and he could present an attractive option if Fitzpatrick turns into a pumpkin.

  Football Team | Logan Thomas exited about WRs    Sat Jun 12, 09:06 PM

Washington Football Team TE Logan Thomas believes the additions of WR Curtis Samuel and WR Dyami Brown will open up more opportunities for him to make big plays. 'With the guys we have on the outside, maybe there's more space on the inside to make plays down the field,' Thomas said.

Footballguys view: Thomas finished 2020 with the best football of his career and his arrow is pointing up even though the Football Team added Brown and Samuel this offseason. Ryan Fitzpatrick should make this pass offense a lot more viable for fantasy football by putting the vertical pass in play, benefiting Thomas among others.

Washington Football Team WR Curtis Samuel (groin) did not participate in the team's minicamp this week because of a groin injury. Head coach Ron Rivera said Samuel should be ready for training camp.

Footballguys view: Like all offseason injuries, we'll monitor this going into camp and in the preseason because an aggravation or slow recovery could be a bad sign for Samuel's 2021.

  Football Team | Curtis Samuel to play all over    Sat Jun 5, 11:26 PM

Washington Football Team WR Curtis Samuel is an 'ascending player,' according to offensive coordinator Scott Turner. 'He can play all over the field, whether it's outside, inside, in the backfield, in motion,' Tuner said 'Those are going to be the things he does, which is everything.'

Footballguys view: Turner knows Samuel well from their time together in Carolina, and the Washington offensive coordinator wasn't shy about using Samuel as a runner when he had a short stint as playcaller for the Panthers. Ryan Fitzpatrick should be a bold downfield thrower and Samuel could some very winnable one-on-one matchups with Terry McLaurin on the other side. Samuel is an unknown upside player this year.

  Football Team | Terry McLaurin feeling chemistry    Sat Jun 5, 02:16 PM

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin is talking up the chemistry he gained with new QB Ryan Fitzpatrick during the two weeks of OTA workouts. 'He (Fitzpatrick) puts an emphasis on really being in communication with the receivers,' McLaurin said. That's not just me. I've seen him communicate with just about every receiver on the roster right now, just about what they're thinking with this route, what they're thinking about with this leverage. I think that is very important to do at this part in the season because you want to try to start making that connection early.'

Footballguys view: McLaurin should be excited because Fitzpatrick is the best quarterback he's played with in the NFL. Fitzpatrick is going to be aggressive and give his wide receivers a chance to make big plays down the field. McLaurin has put up strong numbers despite sub-par quarterback play from guys like Dwayne Haskins or Alex Smith. This year, Fantasy GMs are looking to McLaurin as a low-end WR1 and he's got a current ADP of WR12 (3.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.
