The Facts: Changes at receiver haven't altered Crowder's expectations for what the Redskins offense can accomplish this season. "It can still be very explosive, like the previous years I've been here," Crowder said. "Terrelle] Pryor put up big numbers with the Browns, and [Josh] Doctson, everyone is anxious to see what he brings to the table. I have faith in him that he'll be a huge weapon, and Jordan Reed and [tight end] Vernon Davis. The offense can still be explosive, if not more than it was last year."
Diehards Line: The Redskins lost receivers DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon but added Pryor and return a healthy Doctson. They'll be paired with Crowder, who is expected to have a bigger role at receiver, and star tight end Reed. The Redskins offense ranked third in yards per game, but 11th in points in 2016. So as ESPN.com's John Keim notes, there's plenty of room for improvement, especially in the red zone where the Redskins ranked 30th. Pryor will give the Redskins a different sort of look as a big, athletic target at 6-4. Doctson, too, is taller at 6-2, and can jump. He just has to prove he can stay healthy after his Achilles' issues cost him 14 games last year -- and that he can contribute. Crowder likely will play outside in the Redskins' two-receiver set and in the slot when they use three. How that translates in 2017 remains to be seen, of course. But expect all involved to be of interest to fantasy owners this fall.
