WR - FA
Week 17 Outlook
The Redskins haven't completely ruled out re-signing wideout Santana Moss, but they will probably wait to see how the draft goes before making a final decision on Santana Moss.
The fourth-leading receiver in team history with 7,867 yards, Moss, will turn 36 in June. His age factored into the minimization of his role when DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts arrived last season. Now that Moss' contract has ended, talks between his people and the team have been sparse. Redskins' head coach Jay Gruden said that the team is "keeping a close eye on" Moss' situation and wouldn't be against bringing him back. If the Redskins drafted another wide receiver, it would probably seal his fate. However, if the team doesn't draft another wideout then it's very possible that they would re-sign him. Either way, Moss would come back and be the fifth wide receiver on a mediocre passing team. He would have no fantasy value either way.
Redskins' head coach Jay Gruden admitted that WR Santana Moss is "very close right now," in reference to when Moss may hit the field this season. Gruden later elaborated, "[Itâ€™s] nothing that heâ€™s done wrong. Itâ€™s just we feel like weâ€™ve got five receivers that are a little bit more useful. But we have a great deal of respect for Santana, what he brings to this team on and off the field. I would imagine that by seasonâ€™s end, heâ€™s going to get his reps and heâ€™s going to get his looks. I donâ€™t know when that will be though."
Moss is still on the roster simply for what he brings to the locker room and out of respect for being one of the best receivers in franchise history. However, much of Moss' speed has deteriorated to the point where even WR Aldrick Robinson is a more useful situational deep threat than Moss would be at this point. Moss has no value in any fantasy leagues and likely won't all season.
Redskins WR Santana Moss was a healthy inactive in the team's Week 3 loss to Philadelphia. Moss has yet to suit up for a game in 2014.
From a fantasy, and probably a football standpoint, Moss' best days are behind him. If you are using a roster space to carry Moss, it's time to cut bait and move in a different direction.
Redskins WR Santana Moss was a healthy inactive in the team's season opener against Houston.
It is a sign of a reduced role and diminishing expectations in Washington for the 35-year old veteran. While Moss is listed as second string on the official depth chart, his absence on Sunday is a sign that fantasy owners need to look elsewhere for bench production,
Redskins WR Santana Moss has earned a roster spot, despite some speculation the team might move on from the veteran.
Moss figures to be the Redskins' WR4 and should get steady playing time. However, he is expected to see another drop in production and should not be relied upon as a meaningful contributor in fantasy.
