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.

Washington Redskins May Surprise You

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.
