RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Doctson's rookie year was over before it started. A sore Achilles' tendon in spring OTAs never went away, and after suiting up for two games, last year's 22nd overall pick shut it down for good. At 6-2, 202 with 4.50 40 speed, Doctson's physical skills don't jump off the page, but he's athletic -- 131-inch broad jump -- and he put up big numbers in college -- 25 TDs in his last 23 games. The environment should be more favorable in Washington for Doctson this year with DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon gone and only Terrelle Pryor (and to a lesser extent Brian Quick) brought in to replace them. That means Doctson could start opposite Pryor with Jamison Crowder working out of the slot, though TE Jordan Reed, barring injury, will also have a big role. In March, Doctson declared himself healthy and proceeded to avoid the PUP list at the start of training camp.

2016

The 22nd overall pick, Doctson is a nice combination of size (6-2, 202), speed (4.5 40), athleticism (131-inch broad jump) and college production (25 TD in his last 23 games). Assuming the Redskins don't cut Pierre Garcon at press time they indicated they'd keep Garcon and DeSean Jackson despite drafting Doctson - it's likely they'll integrate Doctson into the offense gradually. But Jackson doesn't have the frame to be a go-to receiver, and Garcon is a borderline No. 2 at this point in his career, so Doctson could be Kirk Cousins' top target out wide by midseason. Keep in mind, tight end Jordan Reed is the team's star pass catcher, and he'll get most of the work near the end zone.
