| Pryor joins the Redskins after one full season as a converted WR with the Cleveland Browns. His 6'6" 230 LB frame is a matchup nightmare for smaller cornerbacks, and he proved to be a viable deep threat in Cleveland with 1007 yards and seven touchdowns on the receiving end of less-than-stellar play from a collection of Browns quarterbacks.
There is significant hype surrounding Pryor joining a passing game that ranked 8th in the NFL in each of the last two seasons, and Kirk Cousins is certainly an upgrade over Cody Kessler and Robert Griffin III. But fantasy owners should be aware that one of the reasons why Pryor was so effective is the fact that he was peppered with targets (141) in a passing game with few options. Pryor should receive a significant number of targets in the Washington passing game, but Cousins has a well-developed rapport with Jamison Crowder and top-option Jordan Reed, leading some to question if Pryor will be able to garner enough volume to justify an ADP in the 4th round. The key will be Pryor improving his efficiency (55% catch rate) from last season on expected lower volume in Washington.
| Crowder questionable with hip injury|
Will test injury on Saturday

|Redskins receiver Jamison Crowder is questionable with a hip flexor. Coach Jay Gruden said they'll work him out again Saturday. "Anyone questionable is a concern," Gruden said. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Crowder apparently tweaked his hip flexor during Thursday’s practice. We'll have to monitor his status over the weekend. If Crowder doesn't play, Ryan Grant would likely move into the slot with Josh Doctson and Terrelle Pryor lining up on the outside.
|Jamison Crowder set to make preseason debut|
Missed opener with hamstring injury

|Jamison Crowder received a full workload yet again, and the plan is for him to make his preseason debut after missing the opener with a hamstring injury. It means that Kirk Cousins and the offense will take another step toward returning to full strength.
Crowder has looked good in practice, winning matchups against Josh Norman when lined up outside, and Kendall Fuller or linebackers or safeties when lined up in the slot. He has used crisp route-running to shake the likes of Norman and Fuller, and speed to win against linebackers and safeties. (The Washington Post)|
FFToday's Take: Despite all the hype Terrelle Pryor is getting in the fantasy community, Crowder should see the most targets in Washington. The key for him living up to his early-sixth round ADP is remaining one of Kirk Cousins' two favorite options in the red zone (along with Jordan Reed). It will be difficult for him to do given Pryor is such a big and athletic target, but PPR owners should be happy with Crowder regardless given his 90-catch upside.
