  Football Team | Big night for Terry McLaurin    Fri Sep 17, 02:10 AM

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin caught 11 passes for 107 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the New York Giants. McLaurin was targeted a game-high 14 times.

Footballguys view: McLaurin's value isn't going to be hurt by Taylor Heinicke, and it might even be helped even though he doesn't have the deep arm of Ryan Fitzpatrick. Tre'Davious White and the Bills are up next, but McLaurin is unbenchable.

  Football Team | J.D. McKissic totals 93 yards, scores    Fri Sep 17, 01:56 AM

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic ran four times for 10 yards and a touchdown on Thursday, Sept. 16, against the New York Giants. McKissic was also targeted six times as a receiver, catching five for 83 yards.

Footballguys view: McKissic doesn't get consistent enough work to trust in fantasy lineups, but he is still a good player and contributor to this offense. Consider him a desperation play and decent end of the bench depth in PPR leagues.

  Football Team | Antonio Gibson scampers for 69 yards    Fri Sep 17, 01:44 AM

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson ran the ball 13 times for 69 yards in a Week 2 win over the New York Giants. Gibson also caught two passes for four yards.

Footballguys view: Gibson gave way to J.D. McKissic in two minute drill and obvious passing situations, and his upside suffered for it. He's still a solid RB2, but the elite RB1 upside we imagined when he was going in the top 15-20 picks isn't there right now.

  Football Team | Taylor Heinicke tops 300 yards passing    Fri Sep 17, 01:27 AM

Washington Football Team QB Taylor Heinicke completed 34 of his 46 passes for 336 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception against the New York Giants on Thursday, Sept. 16. Heinicke also ran four times for six yards.

Footballguys view: Heinicke started slow, taking a few big sacks when he retreated against pressure, but he came around to lead a comeback victory despite an unlucky interception when the game appeared to be on the line in the fourth quarter. He'll face the Bills next week and deserves QB2/Superflex consideration.

  Football Team | Ryan Fitzpatrick taking rehab route    Thu Sep 16, 01:24 PM

Washington Football Team QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) will attempt to rehab his injured hip without surgery for now, sources said Thursday, Sept. 16.

Footballguys view: We'll see how this approach works out for him. Some players opt for rehab instead of surgery and then just need surgery anyway. Fitzpatrick is still expected to miss at least eight weeks.

  Football Team | Antonio Gibson not on injury report    Wed Sep 15, 02:18 PM

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.

Footballguys view: Good news for Gibson here. He needs to hang onto the rock and lead the way for the Washington offense, especially with Taylor Heinicke at quarterback. Gibson is a RB1 option for Fantasy GMs against the Giants on Thursday night.

  Football Team | Washington all-in with Taylor Heinicke    Wed Sep 15, 12:58 PM

Washington Football Team QB Taylor Heinicke has belief from head coach Ron Rivera that he can handle the starting duties. Heinicke has shown good mobility and accuracy when he is forced out, but the team wants to hone him in a bit. 'He plays a little bit like his hair is on fire,' Rivera said. 'He plays a little bit like a gunslinger. But I think, and I hopefully believe that he's matured a little bit.' I think just understanding the game even more so. He's learned to be patient, take what's given to him, and I think he has a really good feel for when he takes his shots, too.'

Footballguys view: Heinicke is a competent starter who can be described as a scrappy gamer. That's not great from a fantasy perspective but with that defense and the weapons around Heinicke on offense it has Washington feeling confident about their quarterback. He's a streaming option for Fantasy GMs in deeper leagues and so long as Heinicke plays well Washington will not be in the market for another quarterback.

  Football Team | Ryan Fitzpatrick put on IR    Tue Sep 14, 03:04 PM

Washington Football Team QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Sept. 14.

Footballguys view: This is the short-term IR, so Fitzpatrick has to miss at least three weeks. Reports are coming in on Tuesday which indicate Fitzpatrick will need 6-8 weeks of recovery time. Either way, Washington moves forward with Taylor Heinicke as their starter and Kyle Allen as their backup. WFT head coach Ron Rivera says the team has no plans on adding another quarterback at this time.

  Football Team | Washington's Tuesday practice report    Tue Sep 14, 01:24 PM

Washington Football Team QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Sept. 14. RB Antonio Gibson (shoulder) was practiced in full.

Footballguys view: It looks like Gibson is good to go for the Thursday night game against the Giants. Fitzpatrick is on IR, so Taylor Heinicke gets to start against a Giants team that struggled with the Broncos offense in Week 1.

Updating earlier reports, Washington Football Team QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) had an MRI confirm a hip subluxation Monday, Sept. 13, and he'll be placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: There is no indication that it's a season-ending injury yet. That means Fitzpatrick will miss at least three weeks on short-term IR. Washington turns to Taylor Heinicke as their starter while Fitzpatrick is out.

  Football Team | Kyle Shurmur to WAS    Mon Sep 13, 10:47 AM

Free-agent QB Kyle Shurmur (Bengals) signed with the Washington Football Team's practice squad Monday, Sept. 13.

Footballguys view: Shurmur, son of Broncos OC Pat Shurmur, has bounced around the league a bit since coming into the league as an undrafted free agent back in 2019. He's got prototypical size and is known as a smart player, but Shurmur should be nothing more than a practice arm for Washington.

  Football Team | Ryan Fitzpatrick out several weeks    Mon Sep 13, 08:18 AM

Washington Football Team QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) has a hip subluxation that will keep him out for several weeks. He'll have an MRI Monday, Sept. 13, to determine how much damage he suffered when the hip knocked out of place.

Footballguys view: We'll know more about Fitzpatrick's injury after the MRI. The team will go with QB Taylor Heinicke as the starter. Fitzpatrick is a candidate for the Reserve/Injured list.

  Football Team | Logan Thomas gets into the end zone    Sun Sep 12, 04:54 PM

Washington Football Team TE Logan Thomas registered three catches for 30 yards and a touchdown while absorbing all three of his targets in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Footballguys view: Thomas, like the rest of the Washington offense, only had a pulse with backup Taylor Heinicke in. Next week he'll face a Giants defense that gave up a lot to Broncos tight ends today.

  Football Team | Terry McLaurin leads team in receiving    Sun Sep 12, 04:51 PM

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin posted four grabs for 62 yards on four targets in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Footballguys view: McLaurin was quiet with Ryan Fitzpatrick in a troubling development for his overall outlook, but he made an unbelievable play on a risky Taylor Heinicke deep ball, so perhaps the backup is better for him right now than the injured starter.

  Football Team | Antonio Gibson runs for 90 yards    Sun Sep 12, 04:42 PM

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson rushed 20 times for 90 yards in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers, although he also did lose a fumble.

Footballguys view: Gibson's fumble was a turning point in the game and it will stick out more in his mind than the solid game on the ground. A short turnaround to a Thursday night date with the Giants could help Gibson put it behind him.

  Football Team | Taylor Heinicke finishes up in Week 1    Sun Sep 12, 04:39 PM

Washington Football Team QB Taylor Heinicke completed 11-of-15 passes for 122 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions while running for 17 yards.

Footballguys view: Heinicke is almost certain to start on Thursday against the Giants after Ryan Fitzpatrick left the game with a hip injury. Just like in the playoffs, he was a game competitor and gave his teammates chances to make plays. The pass offense came alive when he entered the game. He's a must add in superflex/2QB leagues.

The Washington Football Team have declared DE Shaka Toney, QB Kyle Allen, CB Darryl Roberts, OT Saahdiq Charles and TE Sammis Reyes inactive for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Reyes is a name to file away for future years. He's an ultraathletic basketball convert who the Football Team did not feel they could stash on the practice squad after he had a solid summer even though he is relatively new to football.

  Football Team | Curtis Samuel lands on IR    Fri Sep 10, 01:24 PM

Washington Football Team WR Curtis Samuel (groin) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a groin injury Friday, Sept. 10.

Footballguys view: Samuel missed all of training camp and the preseason dealing with this groin issue with the idea that he would be ready for the start of the regular season. An aggravation/tweak to this injury caused the team to put him on IR. Now, Samuel will be out of action for at least the first three weeks of the regular season. Washington turns to Terry McLaurin, Dyami Brown, and Adam Humphries as their top trio at the wide receiver position. McLaurin is a star, Brown is an interesting deep threat and Humphries is a security blanket who has flex appeal in PPR formats.

  Football Team | Curtis Samuel still sidelined    Thu Sep 9, 12:31 PM

Washington Football Team WR Curtis Samuel (groin) remained out of practice Thursday, Sept. 9, working on the side instead doing band exercises with a trainer.

Footballguys view: This is not a great sign for Samuel's availability in Week 1. He missed all of training camp and the preseason with the idea that he would be ready for the start of the regular season. A tweak to his groin injury this week while warming up has now put his status in doubt. If Samuel misses Week 1, Washington can turn to Adam Humphries and Dyami Brown as options outside of WR Terry McLaurin and TE Logan Thomas.

  Football Team | Curtis Samuel a no-go Wednesday    Wed Sep 8, 01:49 PM

Washington Football Team WR Curtis Samuel (groin) reportedly tweaked his groin while warming up and did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 8.

Footballguys view: It's a disappointing development for a player who missed all of the preseason and training camp with this groin injury. Let's see if he can get back out there for a full practice on Friday. If Samuel misses Week 1 against the Chargers, it would lead to more opportunities for WRs Adam Humphries and Dyami Brown could also get more work.

Footballguys view: Rivera has previously stated that he's 'very confident' that Samuel will be ready to go in Week 1. Samuel is set to start opposite of Terry McLaurin with the new-look Washington passing game. He missed all of camp, but Samuel should be able to quickly build chemistry with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.
