|A favorite 2017 breakout candidate by many analysts and writers in the fantasy community, Jamison Crowder failed to improve on his 2016 campaign in which the former Duke Blue Devil caught 67 balls for 847 yards and seven touchdowns. The narrative of Crowder benefitting from an increase in targets due to Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson leaving did not materialize to the level projected by Crowder apologists, and Crowder's touchdown and yard-per-reception average went down.
Owners who made the unfortunate selection of Crowder in the fifth or sixth rounds in drafts last no doubt were burned by Crowder not living up to the draft price as the No.29 ranked WR according to 2017 ADP data. After finishing last season outside of WR territory as the No. 44 wide receiver behind fantasy stalwarts like Jermaine Kearse and Mohamed Sanu, Crowder has fallen down drafts and can be selected as late as the 10th round in most 12-team formats.
The devaluation of Crowder based on last year's disappointing performance has made the slot receiver a value in 2018 when you consider the fact that Alex Smith loves to target short and intermediate routes in the passing tree while avoiding risky throws. According to NFL Next Gen Stats, Smith ranked 20th in average completed pass yards (6.3 yards per pass), and Smith was the second lowest out of all qualified quarterbacks in throwing into aggressive and tight windows. When you consider that Crowder ranked eighth among all wide receivers in separation yards last season (3.2 average yards of separation), it is likely that Smith will lean heavily on Crowder in 2018.
| Crowder out, Paul Richardson doubtful|
Redskins thin at receiver

|Redskins WR Jamison Crowder out Sunday vs. Dallas and could miss a little time, coach Jay Gruden said. Receiver Paul Richardson is doubtful with his shoulder/knee. Running backs Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson both are questionable as is Quinton Dunbar. (John Keim on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Redskins are thin at receiver with Josh Doctson, Maurice Harris, Michael Floyd and Brian Quick being the options at the position for Alex Smith. Harris is likely to see the most snaps in the slot with Floyd playing the Z position for Richardson. None of these players are recommended fantasy options.
| Redskins down Chris Thompson and Crowder|
Redskins thin at the skill positions

|Redskins’ WR Jamison Crowder, listed as questionable for Sunday with an ankle injury, is not expected to play vs. the Panthers. So the Redskins expect to be down Chris Thompson and Crowder. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Redskins are banged up at the offensive skill positions with Adrian Peterson (ribs), Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson all questionable. Kapri Bibbs could see some work in the running game and extra targets could be coming Jordan Reed's way in the passing game.
| Josh Doctson leaves practice with shoulder injury|
Update coming tomorrow
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Aug 1, 11:30 am
|#Redskins WR Josh Doctson is being evaluated for a shoulder injury. An update on his status will be shared tomorrow. (Redskins on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Doctson landed on his shoulder with Josh Norman landing on top of him in the process. We don't know the extent of the injury at this point but expect an update from the Redskins on Thursday. Doctson missed 14 games in his rookie season and is expected to start for the Redskins this season along side Jamison Crowder.
