Washington Redskins wide receiver Cam Sims has been standing out in practices this week and has developed a solid rapport with quarterbacks Case Keenum and rookie Dwayne Haskins. Sims showed big-play ability in 11-on-11 drills and scored a 60-yard touchdown on a pass from Keenum on Tuesday. Sims has yet to be active in an NFL game heading into his second season and is currently buried on the depth chart behind Josh Doctson, Paul Richardson, Jehu Chesson, Darvin Kidsy, Brian Quick, Trey Quinn and rookies Terry McLaurin and Kelvin Harmon. Sims is just a player to watch when training camp rolls around.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson (shoulder) was in full uniform at practice on Tuesday but was limited as he continues to recover from a shoulder injury that landed him on Injured Reserve in November. He went through individual workouts but stood off to the side for 7-on-7 and team drills. The 27-year-old should be good to go by training camp, but it's a reminder that he's a very risky fantasy option. Richardson had 20 catches for 262 yards and two touchdowns in seven games in his first season in D.C. and is likely to be inconsistent for fantasy owners again in 2019.
Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum was sharper than rookie Dwayne Haskins in minicamp practice on Tuesday. Haskins also had moments of success, but he was somewhat inconsistent throwing the ball in the face of constant pressure. He also made a questionable decision in a two-minute drill when he took off running with a few seconds left on the clock. Keenum is a journeyman quarterback who will be an insurance policy for Washington in case Haskins isn't quite ready for the NFL stage in his rookie season. Even if Keenum starts the year under center, Haskins should see considerable playing time in his first NFL season. Neither signal-caller is very attractive in redraft leagues, though.
Washington Redskins left tackle Trent Williams said he doesn't have financial issues with the team at all, according to numerous sources with knowledge of the situation. He has demanded a trade or be released due to the team's handling of his recent medical situation. Williams is one of the best blind-side protectors in the NFL, so losing him would be a big blow for Washington's offense and either quarterback Case Keenum or rookie Dwayne Haskins. It sounds like Williams is adamant on not playing for the Redskins.
Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson said he is aiming for 2,000 yards in 2019. It will be a tall task for the veteran running back heading into his 13th season, even after he ran for 1,042 yards in 2018. Peterson will be 34 years old this season and became the fifth player to rush for 1,000-plus yards at age 33 or older. If everything goes right for Washington, Derrius Guice, who missed all of his rookie season with a knee injury, will take a sizeable load off Peterson's shoulders this year. The 'Skins also have Chris Thompson for third downs and drafted rookie Bryce Love as insurance. Expecting a lot out of Peterson in fantasy would be foolish, but he could still be productive when given his chances.
