Redskins' Josh Doctson: Prepping for larger role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Doctson is expected to handle a larger role in the Redskins' passing attack in the weeks to come, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports. "We are going to actively expand [Doctson's role], without a doubt," Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said Monday. "He didn't get as many reps as I would like at the end of the day when you look at the numbers, but it's our job. We have got to get him in there more and expand it."

Doctson has logged more than 41 percent of offensive snaps in just one game this season, drawing three or fewer targets in each of his five appearances. He's only caught four of his nine targets, but has parlayed those receptions into 90 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Any additional playing time likely will come at the expense of Ryan Grant, who has 13 catches for 158 yards and two touchdowns on 20 targets this year. The Redskins boast a deep stable of pass catchers, which has allowed Kirk Cousins to throw for 251 yards and 1.8 touchdowns per game while distributing no more than 5.8 targets per game to any one player. Doctson may take on a large role as the season progresses, but he'll probably only get a handful of targets per game even if everything breaks right.

Redskins' Josh Doctson: Touchdown in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Doctson recorded one reception for 11 yards and a score in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

Doctson scored his second touchdown of the season Sunday but he has yet to register over two catches in a single contest. The second-year pro is capable of being a big-play option in the red zone, but his lack of targets limits his fantasy value.

Redskins' Josh Doctson: Logs full practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Doctson (shoulder) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

Doctson strained his shoulder during a 29-20 loss to the Chiefs in Week 4, but he's apparently healthy enough to practice without limitation coming out of a bye week. He's been efficient with his limited targets this season, turning six looks into three catches for 79 yards and a touchdown. Doctson still only logged 17 snaps in Week 4,while Ryan Grant handled 22. Consistent production will be elusive if Doctson and Grant continue to essentially share the No. 3 receiver role.

Redskins' Josh Doctson: Strains shoulder Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Jay Gruden said Tuesday that Doctson strained his shoulder during Monday's 29-20 loss at Kansas City. "We're fine with Josh and where he's at," Gruden told Liz Clarke of The Washington Post.

Doctson picked up the injury on his diving attempt at a catch in the end zone just before the Redskins knotted up the score at 20-20 with a field goal in the final minute of the game. On the season, he's only been targeted six times, yet his three receptions have gone for a ridiculous 26.3 YPC and 13.2 YPT. While representative of his talent, the 2016 first-round pick will be unable to tap into his potential until he begins to avoid the injury bug. Fortunately for Doctson, the Redskins have a Week 5 bye, so he has more time than normal to focus on rehabilitation.

Redskins' Josh Doctson: Snags 52-yard TD on SNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Doctson caught one of two targets for 52 yards and a touchdown during the Redskins' 27-10 victory over the Raiders on Sunday.

Doctson flashed his big-play upside Sunday night by leaping over Raiders CB David Amerson for a 52-yard scoring strike in the third quarter that essentially sealed the game for Washington. His usage wasn't enough to warrant immediate fantasy consideration, but the former first-rounder nonetheless reinserted himself into the conversation as someone to either stash away or keep an eye on down the road.
