It hasn't gone exactly as planned, but the Washington Redskins are clinging on to the final spot in the NFC playoff picture. Unfortunately, this probably won't hold with Colt McCoy as their starting quarterback for the rest of the season. 


While McCoy won't be anyone's first choice to lead a playoff push, wide receiver Josh Doctson is certainly ecstatic to see McCoy slinging the pigskin. The third-year man out of TCU is still waiting to truly break out, and perhaps being targeting on 30 percent of all throws will help him do that.

Doctson has 32 catches on 56 targets for 334 yards and two touchdowns this season and the only game where he saw double-digit targets was Sunday with McCoy throwing the passes -- he finished the game with six catches on 10 targets for 66 yards. The six receptions were a career high, while the 10 targets were the second-most he ever had in a single game. Of course, Doctson still needs to haul in these targets (preferably one in the end zone) to truly make himself valuable. 


We're reaching the point in the fantasy season where every little move counts, so keep an eye on Doctson. We already know McCoy will be doing so.
