Ranked 18th among quarterbacks in FOXSports.com fantasy scoring in 2013, and missed the final three games of the season … Threw for 3,203 yards with 16 touchdowns, and finished fifth among QBs with 489 rushing yards … Gruden helped Andy Dalton become a productive passer, and RGIII is better than Dalton, so … How much will Griffin run? Good question. Gruden has said that the read-option will be used in "sprinkles here and there," but that doesn’t mean Griffin won’t take off from the pocket when he sees an opening … Griffin is a fantasy QB1 when he plays, but he’s a likely injury candidate if he runs a lot. Reward, meet risk.
Running Back – Alfred Morris
Ranked 15th among running backs in FOXSports.com fantasy scoring .. Good, downhill runner, but again doesn’t project to catch the ball much … Sitting on the RB1/RB2 cusp in current rankings … Not as valuable in PPR formats, where he could be as low as an RB3.
Running Back – Roy Helu
The receiving complement and possible handcuff to Morris … Caught 31 passes for 251 yards last season.
Wide Receiver – DeSean Jackson
Ranked 10th among wide receivers in FOXSports.com fantasy scoring last season … Was ninth in receiving yards (1,332), T-11 in receiving TDs (nine) and T-17 in receptions (82) … Will need to share RGIIIâs attention with Pierre Garcon – among others – and doesn’t look to be a WR1.
Wide Receiver – Pierre Garcon
Ranked 13th among wide receivers in FOXSports.com fantasy scoring … Led the league with 113 receptions, and was eighth with 1,346 receiving yards, but scored just five times … Tough to pick between Garcon and Jackson, but Garcon’s volume should be higher, albeit not as high as last year’s.
Wide Receiver – Andre Roberts
Ranked 72nd among wide receivers in FOXSports.com fantasy scoring … Too low in the Redskins’ pecking order to be considered in fantasy drafts unless your league is deep.
Ranked 22nd among tight ends in FOXSports.com fantasy scoring … Had a few explosive outings, but only played nine games due to concussion issues … Will Reed be an 80-catch tight end if he stays on the field? Again, there’s only one ball here, and a lot of guys want it … Still, Reed should be considered a top-10 option at this position, with upside if he stays healthy. Griffin reportedly loves him.
Placekicker – Kai Forbath
Ranked 29th in FOXSports.com fantasy scoring, but missed three games due to a groin injury … Converted 18 of 22 field goals last season, and all 26 of his extra points … With the Redskins’ new and improved offense, Forbath can be considered as your kicker in a 12-team draft.
Team Defense (DST) – Ranked a flukish 10th among DSTs – considering their otherwise awful play – in FOXSports.com fantasy scoring … Allowed a hideous 478 points, which tied them for 30th in the NFL … Stay away, as this unit is likely to be porous again.
