    There are so many layers to pull back when addressing the Washington Redskins. Dwayne Haskins isn’t guaranteed to start Week 1, but rest assured he’ll see the field at some point this season. He may have a decent unit to work with, or everyone could implode, leading to an early selection come April 2020.

    Adrian Peterson revitalized his career in 2018. After a down 2017 campaign, many believed the former All-Pro had one season left. Instead, he finished top 10 in rushing yards (1,042) and collected 208 receiving yards. Chris Thompson was targeted 55 times last season and finished with 268 yards through the air as the team’s primary pass-catching back.

    Derrius Guice could be a game changer for Washington’s offense. Last season, the former LSU star missed his entire rookie season due to a torn ACL suffered in pre-season play. Now healthy, Guice should be a reliable runner through the trenches and an acceptable receiver on check-downs for Haskins.

    The x-factor for Haskins will be his receiving corp. With Jamison Crowder now in New York, it’s time to see who can become a consistent weapon for this roster. Tight end Jordan Reed is destined to miss time with an injury while Josh Doctson has drastically disappointed. Paul Richardson missed time due to injuries and made just 20 catches. Trey Quinn is best known for his Office touchdown dance.

    Perhaps young talent such as Cam Sims along 2019 draft picks Terry McLaurin, and Kelvin Harmon can step up. All three can be sold options for Haskins moving forward. While the offensive line might be his strong suit, Haskins could be in for a long rookie year should his receiver struggle.
