Washington Redskins: 3 Players Primed for a Breakout Season in 2018

Hopes are high around the Washington Redskins this training camp. A new quarterback in Alex Smith has made fans forget all about the drama surrounding former quarterback, Kirk Cousins, over the last three years. A talented young defensive line has many believing Washington could finally turn things around on the defensive side of the ball. Unfortunately, Derrius Guice was lost for the season after the first preseason game, which led the Redskins to sign future Hall of Famer, Adrian Peterson.

Head coach Jay Gruden is entering a critical fifth season in charge of the Redskins. After a disastrous first season, Gruden transformed Washington into a division winner his second year. The last two seasons, though, Washington was just above average. An abundance of injuries played a large part in last year’s struggles.

Can the Redskins get back to the playoffs while playing in the same division as the defending Super Bowl champions? Not only are the Philadelphia Eagles stronger than ever, the New York Giants got better, too. It’s tough to say whether or not the Dallas Cowboys will be better in 2018. Regardless, the NFC East is as rugged as ever.

For Washington to get back to the playoffs, it will need a huge season for Smith. Also, some injured players from a year ago will need to return healthy and the Redskins will need some younger players to break through.
