Doctson (hip) caught four of five targets for 84 yards in Sunday's 40-16 loss to the Giants.
This was a strong performance from Doctson, especially considering his team trailed 40-0 through three quarters. The 84 receiving yards marked a season high, but Doctson will be hard-pressed to match that total against the Jaguars in Week 15. Josh Johnson will start that game under center for the Redskins after replacing an ineffective Mark Sanchez in this one.
Doctson (hip) is listed as active Sunday against the Giants, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Despite being a late addition to the injury report Friday as a limited practice participant, Doctson will brush off his questionable designation, which was more or less expected for a hip issue that wasn't considered serious, per John Keim of ESPN.com. In two games without Alex Smith (lower leg) under center, Doctson has hauled in nine of his 15 targets for 117 yards and no touchdowns. However, after next man up Colt McCoy suffered a fractured fibula of his own last Monday against the Eagles, Doctson will be working with Marc Sanchez, who will be making his first start since Nov. 26, 2015.
Doctson is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants due to a hip injury.
Doctson wasn't included on either of the Redskins' first two injury reports of the week, so his hip issue must have cropped up at some point after Thursday's practice. Though any late-week addition to the injury report is always somewhat concerning, John Keim of ESPN.com relays that the Redskins don't believe Doctson is dealing with anything serious. The wideout has raised his performance the last two weeks with nine receptions for 117 yards, but his uncertain status for Sunday along with Washington being down to its third option at quarterback in Mark Sanchez makes Doctson a shaky fantasy option.
Doctson caught three of five targets for 51 yards in Monday night's 28-13 loss to the Eagles.
Doctson's numbers were boosted by a team-long reception of 32 yards, which actually marked his biggest gain of this season. That, however, came before quarterback Colt McCoy suffered a season-ending leg injury. While Doctson caught a 20-yarder from backup Mark Sanchez once he entered the game, the signal-caller's lack of experience in Washington's offense understandably stalled the passing attack. Doctson still led the team in yards, though, which is a good sign despite the limitations that having Sanchez under center could present going forward.
Doctson caught six of 10 targets for 66 yards in Thursday's 31-21 loss to the Cowboys.
The 2016 first-round pick hit season-high marks for receptions, targets and yards, finally taking advantage of his every-down role in the Washington offense. He seems to offer a bit more upside with Colt McCoy under center, as Alex Smith (leg) showed little interest in pushing the ball downfield to wide receivers. Doctson gets a favorable matchup Week 13 against the Eagles on Monday Night Football, facing a secondary that's been ravaged by injuries all season.
