Taylor Heinicke benched in Week 16 loss

Taylor Heinicke completed 13 of his 18 pass attempts for 166 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception before being benched in favor of Carson Wentz in Saturday's 37-20 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Impact:

Heinicke was benched in the fourth-quarter in favor of veteran Carson Wentz, and it's unclear who the starter will be moving forward. He didn't have a terrible game, but the team needed a spark and wanted to see what Wentz could do. Fantasy managers should pay attention to this developing situation in Washington to see who will be at the helm moving forward.
