Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith is ready for his home debut in Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts. He was efficient in the opener at Arizona, completing 21-of-30 passes for 255 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. He could potentially be without WR Paul Richardson (shoulder), but he still has plenty of weapons at his disposal and the effectiveness of RB Adrian Peterson last week kept the defense honest. You can expect Smith to be a guy who routinely puts up 250 yards and a pair of scores, not wowing seasonal fantasy players and DFS owners, but not letting them down, either.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Josh Doctson (foot, shoulder) was on the field Tuesday with the full team. The reports also say he was running hard. The significance is that the bruised foot sounded like it would keep him out of the main parts of practice and limited to individual work. Doctson is working past both a shoulder and foot injuries (on the same play). When healthy, he is expected to be the #2 WR for the Redskins. Doctson only played in two games in his rookie season but caught 35 passes for 502 yards and six touchdowns last year. A breakout could be coming with new quarterback Alex Smith now in town.
Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith has looked very comfortable throwing to wide receiver Jamison Crowder in training camp. Smith has hit him multiple times on quick slants and dig routes. It hasn't been a secret that Crowder and Smith have been tied at the hip, but it's another reminder that Crowder will once again be a breakout candidate in 2018, even if he disappointed his fantasy owners last year.
