Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Draft Rankings
Terry McLaurin Note

McLaurin came out of nowhere as a waiver wire acquisition last year, finishing as the No. 27 wide receiver on a bad offense. It wasn't all pretty, as he had four games with less than 40 yards, but they were going through a lot of changes on the offense. They reportedly tried to acquire Amari Cooper, but after failing to land him, they fell back on Antonio Gandy-Golden in the fourth round of the draft. He's not going to threaten McLaurin's lead role on the team. It's safe to say we should expect 100-plus targets in year two, even if they aren't highly efficient coming from Dwayne Haskins.

Derrius Guice Note

Now entering his third NFL season, Guice has just 49 touches to his name. The Redskins have a new coaching staff that has apparently decided to go with a timeshare approach. Along with Guice, they have Adrian Peterson, Bryce Love, Peyton Barber, Antonio Gibson, and J.D. McKissic. So, even if Guice is the lead back, it's unlikely he's a workhorse, and will concede passing-down work to one of Gibson/McKissic. On a low-scoring team, it's hard to find the upside in Guice's projection, even if he does return to perfect health, which has been an issue.

Adrian Peterson Note

It's remarkable what Peterson's been able to do at 33 and 34 years old, compiling nearly 2,000 rushing yards over the last two seasons, but now 35 years old and in a new offense with tons of competition, it's hard to see him making a difference in fantasy football. He's still likely to command 8-12 carries per game and maybe get goal-line duties, so he could fill in for a few weeks in flex spots for those who are desperate.

Antonio Gibson Note

There are a lot of people out there who like Gibson as a sleeper, though I can't get on board. He plays for what might be the lowest-scoring offense in the league, and is on a depth chart with at least five other running backs. Sure, he's going to be used in some sort of hybrid way, but do we really expect two Redskins wide receivers to be consistent enough to rely on? He may be an electric player but his offense isn't. I'd rather take a player tied to an exciting offense.

Dwayne Haskins Note
Dwayne Haskins photo 234. Dwayne Haskins QB - (at PHI)
It wasn't the ideal start to his career where he threw no touchdowns and four interceptions over his first two games, but things started to look a bit better for Haskins as the year went on. In the following seven games, he threw seven touchdowns compared to just three interceptions. The issue is the lack of volume, as he hit 30 pass attempts just once. Knowing he has limited mobility, that'll cap any quarterback's ceiling. He's fine for a low-end QB2 in 2QB leagues because he won't lose the job, but ideally, he's your QB3.

Steven Sims Note

There was a ramp in Sims' production down the stretch, racking up 36 targets, 20 receptions, 230 yards, and four touchdowns over the final four games. The issue with expecting that to continue? There's a new coaching staff and they used a couple high draft picks on receivers, including Antonio Gibson, who is likely to steal a lot of those intermediate routes over the middle of the field. Sims can clearly play in the league, but opportunity is the most important trait.

Kelvin Harmon Note

Nobody wanted to pay much attention to the Redskins late last year, but Harmon actually delivered some decent performances, posting at least three receptions and 43 yards in four of his seven starts despite not seeing more than six targets in any of them. The Redskins have a new coaching staff and added competition for targets, but Harmon should have a good shot to win the starting job opposite Terry McLaurin.

Washington Redskins Note

Peyton Barber Note

Barber never found sustained success with the Bucs, and will now try his hand with the Redskins. Unfortunately, it's a bad situation for Barber. Not only does he find himself in a below-average offense with a sub-par offensive line, he'll also be competing with Derrius Guice, Adrian Peterson, J.D. McKissic, Antonio Gibson, and Bryce Love. The amount of hurdles that Barber needs to clear to be relevant in fantasy are numerous, and there's no reason to consider him for fantasy purposes.
