Washington Redskins Wideouts We Want in Fantasy – @GNFF_Godfather

If you’re looking for highly undervalued wide receiver talent on NFL teams, look no further than the Washington Redskins corps. Here are three wideouts to target in dynasty leagues, who can end up paying off for dirt cheap.


The rookie out of Ohio State has been turning heads all training camp. Head coach Jay Gruden didn’t hold back on his thoughts so far.

“I didn’t know he was this good…he knows both outside positions, the special teams guys can’t get enough of him…I’m like ‘hey, hold back on special teams.’ He has been actually one of our better players in camp.”
McLaurin’s build and skill-set reminds me of Doug Baldwin but the rookie WR is a faster version with 4.3 speed. He’s been getting open versus Redskins cornerbacks all camp long and already has chemistry with his former college QB and now pro signal-caller in Dwayne Haskins. Pro Football Focus ranks this connection as the best-ever since 2014 with a 158.3 rating between the tandem. As Gruden said, McLaurin is versatile, understands route concepts and works hard. 

PRICE: McLauren’s current ADP in rookie drafts is 3.05 according to Fantasy Football Calculator. In start-up drafts, you can easily take him within the last few rounds. Why not stash him?


9/75/1. That’s Trey Quinn’s 2018 stat line from his one game against the Dallas Cowboys last year. But this is a new season and Jay Gruden has already made it clear that the SMU product has the slot role locked down. No matter which QB ends up starting in Washington, Quinn will be relied on. He’s taking over for Jamison Crowder who is now in New York. As a Redskin, Crowder averaged 55/657/3.5 over the last four seasons in Gruden’s system, playing in 56 games. There’s no reason Quinn can’t exceed that average as long as he remains healthy. 

PRICE: An astonishing ADP of 23.1 in 12-man PPR according to Fantasy Pros. This is great value.


Sims is 6-4, 212 pounds and the undrafted prospect you root for. He’s become a popular target for QBs in camp and is backing up Josh Doctson right now on the second team. Sims is still raw but has the ability to go up and win 50/50 jump balls and has a large wingspan of 33 1/4 inches (87th percentile per Player Profiler).

This is what wide receivers coach Ike Hilliard had to say about Sims this spring.

“We all knew and saw Cam talent-wise last year when he had an opportunity to play, so we’re all just continuing to be pleasantly pleased with the progress he’s made,” Hilliard said. “We know that he’s a taller receiver that can bend and get in and out of breaks. With his skill set, if he continues to develop and take care of every opportunity that comes his way and makes sure he limits his mistakes, he has a chance to really take off in this offense.”

PRICE: Absolutely free. Take a dip into your free agent pool and hold Sims if you’re in a dynasty league with roster space or a taxi squad.
