Redskins Happy With Dwayne Haskins Jr.'s Knowledge Of Offense

Washington Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr. is learning his second offense in as many NFL seasons but has impressed the new coaching staff with his knowledge in virtual meetings. Offensive coordinator Scott Turner said Haskins is learning quickly and "speaking the language" of his offense, despite not being able to get on the field with the sophomore signal-caller. The former first-round pick is favored to start for Washington, but new head coach Ron Rivera said backup Kyle Allen would have an advantage in a QB-truncated competition thanks to playing for Rivera in Carolina last season. Haskins struggled as a rookie but showed promise down the stretch, throwing five touchdowns to one interception in his last three games. Haskins is worth taking a flyer on as a backup QB in fantasy and still has upside as a dynasty prospect.

"There's a Role" For Adrian Peterson In The Washington Offense

Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Scott Turner said, "I have a ton of respect for Adrian...There's a role for that type of back." Adrian Peterson will be entering his age-35 season and has over 14,000 yards on his legs, but proved to still be a solid option in 2019, running for 898 yards at a 4.3 yard-per-carry average. Turner gave the expected answers when asked about running back usage, saying that the team wants to "foster competition" and roll with "whoever gives [them] the best chance" to win. This may end up being a bit of a hot-hand situation, but it seems like Derrius Guice, Peterson, rookieAntonio Gibsonand maybe even Bryce Love will have a role in this offense. Turner also said he'll need to get creative to get the ball to Gibson, J.D. McKissic and Steven Sims Jr.

Adrian Peterson Eyes Starting Job Despite Plenty Of Competition

The Washington Redskins running back room is packed with bodies, but veteran Adrian Peterson won't alter is approach and is competing for a starting job in 2020. "I've always had the mindset of being open to competition," Peterson said. "So I will embrace it the same way." Washington signed Peyton Barber and J.D. McKissic in free agency and drafted Antonio Gibson in the third round. Derrius Guice and Bryce Love also remain on the roster despite dealing with injuries. McKissic mostly plays on third downs, but Barber and Gibson are real threats to Peterson's workload. Peterson has rushed for 1,940 yards and 12 touchdowns in his two seasons in D.C. and missed just one game when he was a healthy inactive. The future Hall of Famer will still have a role in 2020, but he's likely to be overshadowed by Guice and/or Gibson.

Antonio Gandy-Golden Had COVID In March

Washington Redskins rookie wide receiver Antonio Gandy-Golden admitted through his agent that he tested positive for COVID-19 on March 24 before his pre-draft training. Gandy-Golden said that his symptoms were mild, he self-quarantined for two weeks and was fully cleared on April 7. He said he feels 100 percent now and can't wait to get on the field with his new teammates. The fourth-round pick is a little underrated coming from Liberty, but he has the skills to excel at the next level and will have opportunity on a Washington team with plenty of question marks at the position. There's a chance he could fight for a starting job alongside Terry McLaurin, but there will surely be growing pains with quarterback Dwayne Haskins in his first full year in the starting gig. AGG is much more attractive in dynasty/keeper formats in 2020.

Cody Latimer Arrested On Five Charges

Washington Redskins wide receiver Cody Latimer was arrested on Saturday morning in Douglas County, Colorado, on five charges. Latimer was later released after posting $25,000 bond. He was charged with three felonies (assault in the second degree, menacing, illegal discharge of a firearm) and two misdemeanors (prohibited use of a weapon and reckless endangerment). The 27-year-old was drafted by the Broncos in the second round in 2014 and spent four years in Denver before joining the Giants in 2017. He caught 24 passes for 300 yards and two touchdowns in the Big Apple in 2019, but he'll be facing a suspension from the league and is no longer a lock to stick with the Redskins after this incident.
