Redskins' Rob Kelley: Projected as starter
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kelley (knee) is currently projected as the Redskins' starting running back in 2017, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Kelley, an undrafted rookie last year, started Washington's final nine games of the season after Matt Jones failed to impress to begin the campaign. In those appearances, Kelley finished with 601 rushing yards and six touchdowns. Although a knee problem that required a small surgery this offseason slowed him toward the end of that stretch, Kelley showed enough to project as the Redskins' top tailback heading into next season. With his numbers as a starter, that role could see Kelley eclipse 1,000 yards in 2017, but he'll need to continue to prove he's the team's best option to have that opportunity.

Redskins' Will Compton: Progressing well in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton (knee - PCL) is progressing well from the knee injury he suffered in Week 14 against the Eagles. "I feel good about where I'll be come April," he said.

Compton missed just one game due to the sprained PCL and played through the injury in both of the Redskins' final two games. Offseason surgery wasn't necessary, however, so the Nebraska product has subscribed to a regimen of rest and rehab as a means for recovery. He has until mid-April to return to full strength.

Redskins' Niles Paul: Progressing ahead of schedule
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Paul (shoulder) is progressing ahead of schedule after undergoing shoulder surgery in November, Jake Kring-Schreifeis of the team's official site reports.

The veteran tight end said of his progress, "My progression is crazy and I'm in the weight room doing things I'm not supposed to be doing. I was doing pushups two months out and they couldn't believe that. I'm just trying to get right and to be mentally healthy for next season." Paul has only played in eight games the past two seasons due to various injuries but will look to put all that behind him in 2017. He is under contract for one more season and will look to compete with Jordan Reed, Derek Carrier and others for reps once healthy.

Redskins' DeSean Jackson: Hitting open market
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jackson wants to re-sign with the Redskins, but also admitted that he'll take the best offer he receives as a free agent this offseason, ESPN's John Keim reports.

Jackson is coming off his second 1,000-yard season since arriving in Washington in 2014, which figures to make him a hot commodity on the free agent market this offseason. Despite his stated desire to remain with the Redskins, Jackson is expected to have attractive offers elsewhere, which should complicate his decision-making process. Not only that, but Washington is also tasked with fellow wideout Pierre Garcon and quarterback Kirk Cousins being free agents, making the team's cap situation less flexible than some of Jackson's potential suitors. As a result, the 30-year-old's future employer is far from certain, which leaves his 2017 fantasy outlook in need of valuable context before it can be determined.
