Doctson brought in three of six targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 30-13 loss to the Chargers.
The second-year wideout drew even with Jamison Crowder in both receptions and receiving yards on an afternoon when Kirk Cousins threw for a season-low 151 yards. Doctson has no more than three receptions in any of the past three games, and he's tallied no more than four in any contest this season. While he undeniably has big-play potential, it remains largely untapped in an offense that's struggled to gain any measure of consistency lately. Doctson will look to bolster his production against the Cardinals in Week 15.
Doctson brought in three of five targets for 26 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 38-14 loss to the Cowboys.
Doctson salvaged his night from a fantasy perspective with an acrobatic, leaping 14-yard touchdown grab early in the fourth quarter. It marked the second straight game with a touchdown for the second-year wideout, although he's notably notched under 30 receiving yards in both contests. Doctson remains somewhat hard to trust on a week-to-week basis, but he retains considerable upside in the red zone due his size and body control. He'll look to hit pay dirt for the third consecutive contest against the Chargers in Week 14.
Doctson turned four targets into two receptions, 28 yards and a touchdown Thursday against the Giants.
Offense was tough to come by for both teams throughout most of the evening, but Doctson salvaged his game with a touchdown reception mid-way through the fourth quarter and gave Redskins the lead. It was the 24-year-old's fourth trip to the end zone this season and first time since Week 8. He will seek to start a streak when the Giants face the Cowboys in Week 13.
Doctson turned seven targets into four catches for 81 yards in Sunday's 34-31 overtime loss to the Saints.
Doctson's promotion to a starting wide receiver role at Terrelle Pryor's expense has led to an increase in targets, as he's tied his career high with seven in each of the past two weeks while picking up a career-best 81 receiving yards in this one. The 2016 first-rounder out of TCU has had to battle through injuries in the early stages of his career, but Docton's big-play ability gives him serious upside now that he's playing a sizable role.
Doctson, who played a season-high 69 offensive snaps and drew seven targets in the Redskins' Week 10 loss to the Vikings, could be in store for a similarly high workload in Sunday's game against the Saints, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports.
Doctson displaced Terrelle Pryor as Washington's starting 'X' receiver Week 7 against Philadelphia, and though the second-year player isn't expected to lose that role, it nonetheless helps his case that Pryor is nursing a foot injury that will sideline him for the Week 11 matchup. In addition, the Redskins could be without two other depth wideouts in Ryan Grant (concussion) and Brian Quick (concussion), leaving the team with as few as three healthy receivers in the contest. Jamison Crowder, tight end Vernon Davis and running back Chris Thompson might still rank ahead of Doctson in the Redskins' passing tree, but the lack of alternatives beyond that might be enough to keep Doctson quite involved Sunday.
