"Whose Target Is It Anyway?" - Washington Redskins



Written by: Derek Tate

    Terrelle Pryor (ADP WR16/Overall 34)
    • Only scored once in the last 10 games last season.
    • Current ADP has him going before Edelman, Landry and Fitzgerald. All of which posted more receptions and yards than Pryor in 2016.
    • Two Redskin WRs went for 1000 yards last season.
    • Pryor remains a popular breakout candidate in fantasy this season. His price tag makes him your WR2 in most cases (WR1 in others).
    • With Cousins finishing just shy of 5,000 yards through the air and losing his top two WRs to free agency, they brought in Pryor to play a big role in their aerial attack. Unfortunately, you are putting a lot of faith in the unknown if you are going to add Pryor to your team come draft day. The price tag is a bit too rich for my blood.

    • Josh Doctson (ADP WR60/Overall 139)
    • With only two receptions for 66 yards in his rookie campaign, we didn’t get a very big sample size of the talented first rounder from TCU.
    • Doctson has been nursing a hamstring injury this preseason, but appears to be on track to get back on the field before the conclusion of the preseason.
    • Being that it is Pryor’s first year on the team and second year at the position, Doctson should have just as much of an opportunity to have a breakout season as Pryor, but his price tag on draft day is much cheaper.
    • His ADP of 139 overall is worth a pick to see how involved he is to begin the season.

    • Jamison Crowder (ADP WR29/Overall 68)
    • Increased receptions, yards and TDs from rookie to sophomore season.
    • With changes at the outside WR spots and health concern for Reed, Crowder has crept inside the top 30 at the WR position for ADP.
    • Posted only 8 receptions for 80 yards and 0 TDs the last four weeks of the season.
    • Currently a 6th round pick in 12-man formats. Crowder is a safe bet to finish as a top 35 WR and could sneak into the top 20 area at his position in PPR formats if Reed doesn’t get healthy and Cousins doesn’t mesh with his new options on the outside.

    • Jordan Reed (ADP TE3/Overall 42)
    • Reed has been as good as any TE in PPR formats (including Gronk) on a per game basis over the last two seasons.
    • Reed has been on the PUP list for the entire preseason with a toe injury and expects to return to practice next week.
    • Despite the all world talent that Jordan Reed is when on the field, his toe issue heading into this season makes his price tag of a 4th-5th round pick way too risky for my blood.

    • Vernon Davis (N/A)
    • In mostly relief duty to Reed, Davis posted his highest reception and yardage totals since 2013.
    • He is currently undrafted and worth a late add for Reed and non-Reed owners alike, just in case Reed’s health does not hold up.
