Washington Redskins Depth Chart 2018 Redskins Depth Chart

7-9, 3rd NFC East

vs PHI

6:00 pm GMT, 12/30

The Redskins were hit with the injury bug this season, and it started when Darrius Guice went down with a season ending injury before the season started. This led to Washington signing Adrian Peterson, who ended up rushing for over 1,000 yards. Chris Thompson never was truly healthy this season, and it showed despite him being listed as the RB2 on the depth chart. This made Peterson a full blown workhorse. Next year will be interesting to see if they hang onto Peterson, or trust that Guice is healthy and run him out which was the plan this season. Alex Smith had a season ending injury, which led to Josh Johnson being the QB1 at the end of the season. Smith has had some rumors of a career ending infection due to the surgery, which would leave the starting quarterback role open. The Redskins receiving core is at the bottom of the league, and losing Paul Richardson halfway throughout the year didn’t help. Jamison Crowder is listed as the WR1, which is not ideal for him being an undersized slot receiver. Josh Doctson is the WR2 on this team, but they are need of a serious revamp.

Preseason Analysis: Washington Redskins May Surprise You

Washington pulled in a lot of names from elsewhere this year, and then drafted Derrius Guice and Trey Quinn as offensive pieces for the future. Guice is a very talented back, and might be a steal given a few running backs went ahead of him. Guice should jump ahead of a pretty mediocre running back core out of Chris Thompson. If for some reason Perine or Kelly jump ahead, then Gruden deserves to be fired. Teams in need of a running back should be calling Washington for a few of these guys. Expect Thompson to get some passing game work, but not much more. Alex Smith in town doesn’t give Washington much downfield threat, but guys like Jamison Crowder get a bump as well as Jordan Reed when healthy. With his health issues, Vernon Davis continues to be the number two guy, and has served as a reliable backup tight end. Guys like Josh Doctson, and newly acquired Paul Richardson get a downgrade with Smith here, even with the accuracy. They were hard to trust with Cousins/Wilson, so it is tough to expect anything more here. The Redskins have a direction in the running game, but the passing game is a bit up in the air.

The fortunes of the Washington Redskins in 2018 will likely rest on the shoulders of one man: quarterback Alex Smith. In the off-season, the team traded a 3rd-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and cornerback Kendall Fuller for Smith, and they gave him a 4-year $94 million contract. The former first pick of the 2005 NFL Draft — where he was picked well ahead of superstar Aaron Rodgers — will be entering his 13th NFL season this year. He replaces Kirk Cousins, who put up big numbers in his 6 seasons with the Redskins (3 as a full-time starter). Cousins, though, only played in one playoff game, which he lost, and he was prone to boneheaded plays at the worst possible times. After a protracted contract dispute that lasted many years, Cousins signed a 3-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings, which will make him the highest paid player in the league.

While Smith has not exactly been a superstar quarterback, he has not been a bad one, either. He has been to 3 Pro Bowls and last year he was the highest rated quarterback in the league. But he also played for the Kansas City Chiefs, which is a team that is superior to the Redskins in just about every way. He will further have far less quality receivers at his disposal, even with the free agent acquisition of former Seattle Seahawk Paul Richardson. What Smith could have, though, is an excellent running back if Derrius Guice lives up to his hype. Guice, who was a 2nd-round draft pick from LSU, was widely considered the second best running back in the draft after Saquon Barkley. Though his stock fell precipitously for a reason that still has not been adequately explained. If he is as good as people think, and if he can stay out of trouble, he could end up taking a lot of pressure off Smith.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Redskins desperately needed to address the run, as they were the worst team in the league in that regard last year, giving up 134 rushing yards per game and 4.5 yards per carry. The team hopes that they have solved this problem with defensive tackle Da'Ron Payne. Payne, who was the team's first round pick out of Alabama, was selected primarily for his ability to stop the run. The Redskins will also get back Jonathan Allen, who was the team's first-round pick in 2017 and a former teammate of Payne's at Alabama. Allen showed some early promise last year, but he was limited to 5 games because of injuries.
