The Washington Redskins are getting some really good contributions on the field from their rookies this season and wide receiver

Jamison Crowder

is one of the rookies whose stock is rising.  Crowder was a fourth round pick this year and that pick is starting to pay off for the Skins.

Crowder led the Redskins in receptions against the Philadelphia Eagles with 7 catches for 65 yards and while those numbers might not be mind-blowing, the fact is that some of those catches kept the chains moving for the Redskins offense.

Jamison Crowder gives the Redskins a tremendous option out of the slot and his quickness off the line of scrimmage is what you want to have from a slot receiver.  Having a receiver with the kind of shifty movements like Crowder has given quarterback Kirk Cousins a steady target to look for underneath.

Crowder also handles the punt return duties for the Redskins and while he hasn’t broken one yet, it seems like it just a matter of time before he does.  look for Jamison Crowder’s role to increase even more as the season moves forward.
