Last week we used the Approximate Value metric to look at which Redskins were the most valuable in 2013. There is a link to more details on AV in that post if you want it. Today, there are the best single seasons Redskins players have had in terms of AV in the last 20 years (1994-2013).
Typically, these young guys are going to start out low on the depth chart and be forced to fight their way up. However, some guys have a very good chance at eventually becoming a starter at some point in the season. These are the guys you want to target for your fantasy teams. Do not waste your time with guys who do not have a real shot of putting up some points this season if you are in a redraft league.
It is well known that the Redskins are unlikely to improve much in 2014 unless Robert Griffin III plays more like he did in 2012 than he did in 2013. One particular area where he needs to be better than he was last year is in the red zone.
The Washington Redskins continue to fight back regarding their nickname, with general manager Bruce Allen sending a letter to Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid explaining why the name is not about to change in response to a letter Reid and 49 other senators sent to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell earlier this week urging him to force a change of the nickname.
The Redskins knew they couldn't count on a draft pick starting immediately, not without a first-round pick. If it happened? Great. So they filled their perceived immediate needs in free agency and hoped several in the draft class could fill roles, some more prominent.
