2019 Fantasy Football Projections: Washington Redskins

- Updated: Saturday, June 29th


In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Washington Redskins.

QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Dwayne Haskins352.1207.72535.112.328.82248.40.44140.56
It's unclear if Haskins will start Week 1, but it's fairly obvious that he'll start the majority -- if not all -- of the games as a rookie. For now, I've conservatively estimated his starts at 10. Unlike 2018 rookies that had fantasy success (Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson), Haskins is unlikely to make many plays with his legs to give him fantasy relevance (outside of 2-QB leagues) as a rookie.
Case Keenum177.4113.51206.36.214.081868.40.7276.09
With Washington getting their guy at No. 15, Keenum may still get a few early-season starts, but it's unlikely that he holds on to the starting gig for long.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Derrius Guice179.9773.65.420.4148.90.41127.11
An ACL injury wiped out Guice's rookie season. Early reports were that Guice's rehab was coming along slower than expected, but Gruden said it was "ahead of schedule." Given how productive Adrian Peterson was last season, it's unlikely that the team rushes Guice back into the mix. I expect the 2018 second-rounder to lead the team in rushing and workload, but AP should be heavily involved in 2019 as well.
Adrian Peterson114.9465.32.875.847.60.1769.53
A surprise 1,000-yard rusher in 2018, Peterson has his sights set on something he did earlier in his career -- rush for 2,000 yards. As unlikely as it is that he (or any running back) rushes for 2,000 yards in 2019, it's certainly possible that he exceeds (the more realistic) expectations that others have for him.
Chris Thompson41176.30.8241.7325.32.0967.62
Playing just 10 games in back-to-back seasons, health will be key for Thompson, but he had finished as a top-30 PPR back in both 2016 and 2017. In fact, he was PPR's 11th-best running back on a per-game basis in 2017. If he can stay healthy, he'll have a chance to return flex value in PPR formats.

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Trey Quinn55.86253.0713.80.0181.36
With Jamison Crowder now a Jet, it's Quinn's job to lose as the team's slot receiver and it wouldn't be a surprise if the second-year wideout led the team (or at least the wide receivers) in targets.
Josh Doctson42.9570.63.6500078.96
Even if listed as the team's No. 1 wide receiver, the former first-round pick has been disappointing enough that the team declined his fifth-year option (2020). With 500-something yards in back-to-back seasons, it's unlikely that number is much better in 2019.
Paul Richardson38.5519.83.2714.50.0172.11
Signing a free-agent deal with Washington after a 44/703/6 season in Seattle, Richardson (shoulder) played in just seven games and posted a 20/262/2 stat line in 2018. Neither Doctson nor Richardson inspire much confidence despite being the top-two outside receivers on the team's depth chart.
Terry McLaurin27.53631.9300047.88
McLaurin is fast (4.35 forty) and played with Dwayne Haskins at Ohio State. That said, the third-rounder is unlikely to make a significant year one impact.
Kelvin Harmon17.9239.91.6100033.65
Not expected to slip to the sixth round of April's draft, Harmon (6-2, 221) has the potential to move his way up the depth chart before season's over.

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Jordan Reed58.5596.74.100084.27
Missing the final three games of the season, Reed has now missed multiple games in all six of his NFL seasons. Even though he stayed healthy for the first 13 games of the year, he wasn't great when he was on the field either. The TE12 (TE9 in PPR) through Week 14, Reed had 54 catches for 558 yards and two touchdowns last year. If he's able to stay healthy-ish (like last season), there's the potential for him to lead the team's pass-catchers in receiving.
Vernon Davis28.4366.41.8500047.74
Given Reed's durability track record, the 35-year-old Davis is likely to be the team's starting tight end in multiple games in 2019. Davis had just 25/367/2 last season, but he had a combined 1,231 yards over the two seasons before that.
Jeremy Sprinkle6.148.20.640008.66
