Josh Doctson News

Josh Doctson    WR  Redskins

 

 

Josh Doctson caught 3-of-5 targets for 39 yards in the Redskins' Week 7 loss to the Eagles. Doctson got the start at the X receiver spot and played a career-high 54-of-64 (84.4%) snaps and seems to have passed mega-disappointment Terrelle Pryor on the depth chart. Pryor played just 30 snaps, while Jamison Crowder led the team with 58. Doctson didn't do a whole lot with his playing time, but coach Jay Gruden apparently wants to see more now that he's healthy. "We drafted Josh to be the No. 1 guy," Gruden said. "He just has had some injuries. Now that he's healthy, we want to see what he can do." Doctson is worth adding in all formats ahead of a home date against the Cowboys in Week 8. The sky is the limit for Doctson in this pass-happy offense.

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 is expected to handle a larger role going forward, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports. "We are going to actively expand [his role], without a doubt," Redskins 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."

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he plans to "actively expand" Josh Doctson's role. "He didn’t get as many reps as I would like at the end of the day when you look at the numbers," Gruden said. "We have got to get him in there more and expand it." Doctson caught his second touchdown in three games on Sunday, but he played just 26 percent of the snaps. With both Terrelle Pryor and Jamison Crowder struggling to produce, it makes sense to get the sophomore more work. He is a solid bench stash in all leagues.

Josh Doctson (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 6. Doctson got banged up in last Monday's loss to the Chiefs, but is ready to go following the Redskins' bye. Doctson offers big-play upside as an end-of-bench WR5.

Josh Doctson tweaked his shoulder in Monday's loss to the Chiefs, but is expected to be ready following the Redskins' Week 5 bye. His injury is officially being called a "strain." It doesn't sound serious, but again highlights Doctson's durability woes. He was shaken up on two of his three targets against the Chiefs. It's hard to see how the Redskins can count on him as anything more than a role player, killing his fantasy value.

Josh Doctson caught 2-of-3 targets for 27 yards in the Redskins' Week 4 loss to the Chiefs. Doctson was relatively quiet the entire night. Cousins nearly connected with him on a touchdown with less than a minute remaining in the game, but he couldn't hold on. Doctson only played 17-of-50 snaps, the fewest among Redskins receivers. He's a high-upside bench stash in fantasy at the moment.
