Redskins quarterback Alex Smith said his recent success throwing to receiver Josh Doctson stems from a growing familiarity. Doctson has been targeted 15 times the last three games and caught 12 passes. In his first four games (he missed one), Doctson caught 11 passes on 22 targets. Some of those were throwaways in his direction, but, still he's been more productive. "He's a guy that obviously has incredible ball skills," Smith said. "He's a physical receiver and he's played that way for the last few weeks, really physical. He's a guy that often times when you do play X, you are getting pressed a lot and I think he's done a great job against that against different types of guys, playing physical, playing big and I think [he] made a bunch of big kind of traffic catches the last few weeks."
