|I’m not a believer in Josh Morgan, folks. While Morgan is valuable to the Redskins because of his solid size and blocking ability, coupled with a willingness to make tough catches in traffic, he has virtually no upside for fantasy purposes. Sure, he has somehow managed to average a very respectable 12.7 yards per reception over his five-year career, but the Redskins kept a leash on him last season, as he managed just 510 yards on 48 receptions with a pair of scores. Go for someone with more upside than Morgan has to offer.

Hankerson placed on IR with torn LCL
|Redskins wide receiver Leonard Hankerson will miss the remainder of the season with a torn lateral collateral ligament in his left knee, coach Mike Shanahan said. Shanahan said Josh Morgan will start in Hankerson’s place. (Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: Morgan will be third in line for targets in the passing game behind Pierre Garcon and TE Jordan Reed so his fantasy value will hover in the WR4/5 range.

Concussion; Leonard Hankerson likely out for season
|Rookie TE Jordan Reed sustained a concussion Sunday. HC Mike Shanahan said Reed was undergoing the normal concussion protocol, and it won’t be known until later in the week if he’ll play Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers.
Shanahan also said Leonard Hankerson injured the LCL in his left knee during Sunday’s loss at Philadelphia, and MRI exam results were positive. The coach said it wouldn’t be known for a couple days whether the injury would require surgery, which would end Hankerson’s season. (Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: Reed was in on just 33 snaps in Week 11, his lowest total in eight weeks and the results for Washington were predictable, especially since Pierre Garcon complained his ankle was "hurting him badly" following the team's loss to Philadelphia. Reed has emerged as an every-week starter in fantasy, making his potential absence next week a damaging one. Hankerson's loss likely clears the way for more playing time for Santana Moss, Josh Morgan and/or Aldrick Robinson.
