2018 Fantasy Outlook
A second-round pick last year, Anderson was limited to 15 tackles and no sacks in 14 games as a rookie. Washington didn't show much faith in his development this offseason, bringing in 29-year-old Pernell McPhee as competition for a part-time role behind starters Preston Smith and Ryan Kerrigan.

Returning to practice

July 31, 2018
Anderson missed some practice time with back spasms, but he's expected to return Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
The 2017 second-round pick missed the final two weeks of his rookie season with a knee injury, finishing with 15 tackles and no sacks in 14 games. He seems to have made a full recovery long before training camp, but Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith are still locked in as the starting outside linebackers, with Pernell McPhee likely serving as the top backup. Anderson is merely hoping to make his case for a rotational role.

Washington Redskins Team Injury Report

Out
2017 Fantasy Outlook
A second-round pick out of Alabama, Anderson joins a Washington team ripe with talent in the linebacking corps. During his last season with the Crimson Tide, the 6-2, 253-pound run stopper recorded 61 tackles, 19 tackles for a loss and nine sacks, showcasing his ability to make plays in the backfield. Between Ryan Kerrigan, Preston Smith, Trent Murphy and Junior Galette, it's impossible to know how large a role Anderson will receive as a rookie. In all likelihood, he will spend the season conditioning and adjusting to the NFL level of play. However, should his fellow linebackers get bit by the injury bug, the 22-year-old could have his number called.
