Jehu Chesson Added To Active Roster

The Washington Redskins promoted wide receiver Jehu Chesson from the practice squad to the active roster on Thursday with Jamison Crowder (ankle) expected to be out for a few weeks. Paul Richardson (knee) is also highly questionable for Week 7 against the Cowboys, meaning Josh Doctson and Maurice Harris could be the team's top two wideouts this Sunday. Chesson will be a long shot to return any fantasy value.

Redskins promote Jehu Chesson

The Washington Redskins added wide receiver Jehu Chesson to the 53-man roster from their practice squad. Chesson replaces rookie Trey Quinn, who was placed on Injured Reserve after undergoing ankle surgery. The 24-year-old saw action in 12 games, mainly on special teams, as a rookie with the Kansas City Chiefs last season. He finished the campaign with two receptions for 18 yards and also averaged 21.7 yards on three kickoff returns. It is unlikely that Chesson will have much of a role on offense, as he will be either the fifth or sixth receiver on the depth chart, depending on the health of Maurice Harris (concussion).

Fourth-Rounder Jehu Chesson Finally Makes Some Noise in Finale

Kansas City Chiefs rookie wide receiver Jehu Chesson closed out a very quiet preseason with a bang, returning a punt for a 76-yard touchdown in Thursday night's finale against the Titans. Although he was the Chiefs' fourth round pick in this year's draft, he is not assured a roster spot as the team currently has 12 wide receivers that they will likely cut down to just six by the Saturday deadline. While Chesson has only caught four passes on nine targets for 46 yards this preseason, he has averaged 38.5 yards on his four kick returns. The Chiefs have a thing for wide receivers with a high motor that can perform well on special teams, so he just might have solidified his spot on the team's 53-man roster for the season. Chesson is buried at the bottom of the Chiefs wide receiver depth chart though, and would need a lot to happen to become a consistent part of the team's passing game. Chesson could continue to get some return work during the upcoming season, but even in leagues that reward points for kick return yardage, he is currently not worth the roster spot.
