Redskins fans have never been this excited for Football season aside from when Robert Griffin III was drafted back in 2012. The coaching staff has a new look, the offense will be led by a healthy and optimistic RG3, and the defense is re-loaded with new pass rushers. This could be the start of a great new age for the burgundy and gold, but a lot of the players are still sorely overlooked in the world of Fantasy Football.
Pierre Garcon is starting to get the recognition he deserves. Things may open up for him even more with DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts now in the ranks. On that note, Jackson is another player to consider drafting in the middle rounds as well. He has good upside and will be a reliable target for RG3. Both Garcon and Jackson can settle to be high end WR2 options. These players could benefit from having each other, but they will also likely be splitting catches as well. They are both experienced, reliable targets and not just one will be favored. This will help the team, but it will also hurt their individual fantasy value.
Jordan Reed's potential is sky high right now, and he is climbing up fantasy draft boards. He was targeted a lot in 2013 and that trend may continue in 2014. He has hands like glue and can make plays after the catch. Who wouldn't throw to a guy like that? He is definitely worth keeping on your radar. However, that potential must be transformed into actual play before we can declare him the most valuable fantasy player on this roster.
Quarterback Robert Griffin III could be a steal this year. He is (hopefully) healthy and has the talent to put up Drew Brees-like numbers. A lot of people shy away from drafting him due to his infamous injury history, though. Drafting him is most certainly a gamble, but it could pay off in the long run. He is the ultimate boom or bust candidate this season, which is why he doesn't get fantasy MVP, either.
All of the players previously mentioned have what it takes to have monster years, and none of them should be overlooked, but the most valuable among them all is Running Back Alfred Morris. He has had two full years of nothing but solid numbers and consistency. A player can have all the talent in the world, but if he isn't consistent it could be very frustrating for fantasy owners. Morris is reliable, and you can feel safe betting on him having double digits week in, week out. The best part is, he normally won't go in the first round! You can snag him up in the second or even third round. Make sure you take him into careful consideration if you are in a position to draft him after the first. It will be a selection you won't regret.
