2018 Fantasy Outlook
A 2016 first-round pick who missed virtually all of his rookie season, Doctson showed some glimpses last year, enough to warrant tempered optimism. His per-play numbers were poor - only 6.4 YPT - but he averaged 14.0 YPC and had two catches of 40-plus yards on 78 targets in 16 games, demonstrating his health and big-play ability. At 6-2, 206, and with 4.5 speed, Doctson has good size and merely average wheels, but he had a 41-inch vertical leap, 131-inch broad jump and 4.08-second short shuttle - all elite marks for explosiveness - at the 2016 combine, and he also has good ball skills. Accordingly, the Redskins were disappointed last year's QB, Kirk Cousins, didn't throw Doctson more 50/50 jump balls. We're not sure new QB Alex Smith is the man to take those chances, either - Smith, despite his uncharacteristic deep throwing last year, is notoriously risk-averse and loath to commit turnovers. In any event, Doctson will start opposite Paul Richardson - with Jamison Crowder in the slot - and should see a career high in targets and plenty of work in the red zone. Read Past Outlooks

Concussed during 84-yard outing

Concussion
December 10, 2018
Doctson is in the concussion protocol, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
ANALYSIS
Doctson caught four of five targets for a career-high 84 yards in Sunday's 40-16 loss to the Giants, unexpectedly having one of his better games with Mark Sanchez and Josh Johnson taking snaps. The third-year wideout apparently got concussed somewhere along the way, putting his availability into question for Week 15 at Jacksonville. Maurice Harris and Michael Floyd would be the top candidates to take on vacated snaps, albeit in a nightmare matchup with Johnson under center.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Doctson's rookie year was over before it started. A sore Achilles' tendon in spring OTAs never went away, and after suiting up for two games, last year's 22nd overall pick shut it down for good. At 6-2, 202 with 4.50 40 speed, Doctson's physical skills don't jump off the page, but he's athletic -- 131-inch broad jump -- and he put up big numbers in college -- 25 TDs in his last 23 games. The environment should be more favorable in Washington for Doctson this year with DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon gone and only Terrelle Pryor (and to a lesser extent Brian Quick) brought in to replace them. That means Doctson could start opposite Pryor with Jamison Crowder working out of the slot, though TE Jordan Reed, barring injury, will also have a big role. In March, Doctson declared himself healthy and proceeded to avoid the PUP list at the start of training camp.
The 22nd overall pick, Doctson is a nice combination of size (6-2, 202), speed (4.5 40), athleticism (131-inch broad jump) and college production (25 TD in his last 23 games). Assuming the Redskins don't cut Pierre Garcon – at press time they indicated they'd keep Garcon and DeSean Jackson despite drafting Doctson - it's likely they'll integrate Doctson into the offense gradually. But Jackson doesn't have the frame to be a go-to receiver, and Garcon is a borderline No. 2 at this point in his career, so Doctson could be Kirk Cousins' top target out wide by midseason. Keep in mind, tight end Jordan Reed is the team's star pass catcher, and he'll get most of the work near the end zone.
