|A former first-round selection in the 2016 NFL draft, Josh Doctson has yet to live up to the abilities that made him one of the most highly touted wide receivers in his class. At 6'2", Doctson excelled in college at TCU as an aggressive jump ball wide receiver skilled at making contested catches. After an injury-riddled rookie season that included just two catches for 66 yards, Doctson played in 15 games last year, posting 35 catches for 502 yards and six touchdowns.
Although currently listed as the No.1 wide receiver on our Washington Redskins depth chart, Doctson will likely be a touchdown-dependent outside wide receiver once again in 2018, with Jamison Crowder and Jordan Reed leading the team in targets.
The addition of Alex Smith under presents positives and negatives for a big play WR like Doctson, as Smith was the highest rated deep thrower last season according to ProFootballFocus. Yet on the downside, only C.J. Beathard of the 49ers threw fewer balls into aggressive widows than Smith last season, bringing into question whether or not Smith will throw many contested balls to Doctson.

Update coming tomorrow

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.
| Jordan Reed expected to be eased into camp|
Coming off toe surgery

FFToday's Take: We know the story with Reed. He can be a fantasy force at a weak tight end position but has a difficult time staying on the field. He hasn't played a full season in his 5-year career and missed 10 games in 2017. He's currently a mid-to-late round dart throw.
