Jordan Reed (ankle, foot) remained sidelined on Tuesday.

It would be highly surprising if Reed played again this season.
Dec 18 - 5:12 PM

Redskins S Montae Nicholson was arrested and charged with assault and battery and public drunkenness on Tuesday morning.

Both Nicholson and a female companion were charged. The two apparently "pulled up in a vehicle and honked the horn" at a man and woman. It's unclear what ensued after. Nicholson was benched mid-season after shaky early-year play.

Jamison Crowder caught 4-of-4 targets for 46 yards in Washington's Week 15 win over Jacksonville.

Crowder has led Washington in receiving in each of Josh Johnson's appearances, but it's occurred quite luckily. In Week 14, Crowder turned a routine short catch into a 79-yard touchdown. On Sunday, Crowder accumulated 33 of his yards on a pass by Johnson that should've been picked off, but got deflected high into the air, was caught by Crowder, and went for a 33-yard gain. Crowder will remain a low-floor WR4 option in Week 16 at Tennessee.
Dec 16 - 4:41 PM

Vernon Davis caught 2-of-3 targets for 16 yards in the Redskins' Week 15 win over the Jaguars.

Davis suffered a neck injury early in the third quarter but quickly returned. He unsurprisingly failed to produce with Josh Johnson at quarterback and will remain a low-end streamer when the Redskins visit the Titans next.
Dec 16 - 4:38 PM

Josh Doctson went catch-less on two targets in Week 15.

He won't be a Week 16 fantasy option with Josh Johnson at quarterback.
Dec 16 - 4:37 PM

Chris Thompson rushed five times for nine yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for four yards in the Redskins' Week 15 win over the Jaguars.

Thompson has six touches or fewer in four straight games.
Dec 16 - 4:35 PM

Adrian Peterson rushed 19 times for 51 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 20 yards in Washington's Week 15 win at Jacksonville.

Peterson got nothing going early but picked up numerous clutch gains in the fourth quarter to help spark Washington's comeback win. Peterson has been a high-volume back in the Redskins' wins and an afterthought in their losses. The Skins figure to be significant road underdogs in Week 16 at Tennessee.
Dec 16 - 4:34 PM

Josh Johnson completed 16-of-25 passes for 151 yards and a touchdown and rushed nine times for 49 yards in Washington's Week 15 win at Jacksonville.

He took three sacks and didn't make many mistakes for a Redskins team whose playoff hopes are stunningly still alive. Johnson's one egregious throw wound up as a completion when the pass was deflected high into the air and caught by Jamison Crowder for a gain of 33 in the second half. Johnson will remain a low-end two-quarterback-league play when Washington visits Tennessee next.
Dec 16 - 4:31 PM

Chris Thompson (illness) is active for Week 15 against the Jaguars.

Unfortunately, Thompson has logged touch counts of 5, 6, and 6 over his last three games, failing to make any fantasy impact. He would be a poor flex option in fantasy semi-finals week. The Redskins' Week 15 inactives are CB Greg Stroman, OT Kyle Fuller, RB Samaje Perine, CB Josh Holsey, OL Tony Bergstrom, LB Ryan Anderson, TE Jordan Reed, and QB Colt McCoy.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Redskins have yet to make a decision on Jay Gruden's future.

The Redskins are on a four-game losing streak after blowing their lead in the NFC East. Alex Smith's season and potentially career-ending injury is part to blame, but Gruden's coaching and roster management has also played a role in the second-half collapse. Gruden is only signed through 2020, so the Redskins can move on with relative ease this offseason. Even if Gruden stays, we'd expect some shakeup to Washington's staff.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Chris Thompson (illness, questionable) is expected to play Week 15 against the Jaguars.

There never appeared to be much concern about his status. Thompson has touched the ball eight times in each of his two games since returning from injury, nothing 59 yards from scrimmage along the way. There are better options even in PPR formats.
Dec 16 - 12:05 AM

ESPN's John Keim reports Josh Doctson has cleared the concussion protocol.

It means he will suit up against the Jaguars, but that does not mean he should be in fantasy lineups. He is nothing more than a desperation play with Josh Johnson at quarterback.
Dec 16 - 12:04 AM

Alex Smith (leg, IR) has been released from the hospital.

Smith suffered both compound and spiral fractures in his leg in mid-November and developed an infection which prompted several more surgeries while in the hospital. ESPN reports his prognosis is "encouraging" and "there is some optimism" about his future, but Smith's ability to continue his career remains in doubt. Smith is set to count $20.4 million and $21.4 million against the cap the next two seasons.

Josh Doctson (concussion) is questionable for Week 15 against the Jaguars.

Doctson hasn't cleared the concussion protocol yet, but he was able to practice on Friday, which is obviously a step in the right direction. Even if he gets the green light for Sunday's game in Jacksonville, he'll be hard to trust in a tough matchup with All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey. The fact that he'll be catching balls from Josh Johnson, who is making his first start in over seven years, obviously won't help matters.
Dec 14 - 1:34 PM

Chris Thompson (illness) is questionable for Week 15 against the Jaguars.

Thompson came down with an illness late in the week, but it shouldn't keep him from playing Sunday at Jacksonville. Currently in the midst of a six-game touchdown drought, the receiving back won't be a trust-worthy fantasy option in Week 15.
