Grant caught three of five targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 26-24 win over the 49ers.
Grant has been mostly quiet since his four-catch Week 1 effort, totaling just nine catches over the last four games. He has found the end zone twice and should be seen as potential red-zone threat, but with so many other targets in Washington, it's hard to depend on Grant week to week.
Grant hauled in two of three targets for 16 yards and a touchdown in Monday's loss to the Chiefs.
Grant found the end zone for the second time this season as Kirk Cousins connected on a three-yard pass for the score midway through the third quarter. The wideout only received 22 offensive reps (44 percent) Monday night, but it shouldn't be too concerning considering the Chiefs controlled the clock for the majority of the game.
Grant hauled in one of two targets for 11 yards in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Rams.
Grant didn't live up to the hype this Sunday after his Week 1 performance -- four receptions for 61 yards -- as he only managed two looks from Kirk Cousins. After almost doubling No. 4 wideout Josh Doctson's reps last week, Grant's 30 offensive snaps were almost matched by Doctson (29). If Grant's lackluster performances continue, they team may opt to go with the younger Doctson as the No. 3 option.
Grant logged 37 offensive snaps in Sunday's 30-17 loss to the Eagles, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports.
Grant clearly operated ahead of Josh Doctson (20 snaps) as the No. 3 receiver and took advantage with four catches for 61 yards on six targets. Doctson wasn't targeted at all, and while the Redskins presumably hope to get him more involved throughout the season, Grant is a safe bet to reprise the No. 3 role Week 2 against the Rams.
Grant hauled in two of four targets for seven yards in Saturday's preseason loss to the Packers.
Grant has been battling for the No. 3 wideout gig, but his performance Saturday probably won't help him on that front, especially after he logged the most offensive snaps (33) of any receiver on the roster. Additionally, Grant's measly seven yards were the fewest of any wideout that recorded a reception in the game. Unless Grant can turn it around Sunday against the Bengals -- a game in which his reps could be limited with the starters expected to work deeper into the contest -- Grant may be destined for another season as a backup slot man.
