Taylor Heinicke expected to start in Week 18

Taylor Heinicke is expected to start for the Commanders against the Cowboys in Week 18.

Fantasy Impact

Heinicke is slated to start Sunday's game against Dallas, but rookie Sam Howell is also expected to play. The Commanders are eliminated from the playoffs, so it makes sense to get a look at the former fifth-round pick Howell. For any fantasy managers playing in Week 18, it is best to stay away from any of the Commanders' quarterbacks.

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.

Taylor Heinicke throws for 249 yards in Week 15

Taylor Heinicke completed 17 of 29 passes for 249 yards and one touchdown on Sunday against the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Heinicke also added in 33 rushing yards. In a rematch against the Giants from two weeks in a row that ended in a tie, the Commanders fell just short in this game. Heinicke tossed the one touchdown to Jahan Dotson after scoring just three points in the first half. He should be left on the waiver wire next week against the 49ers.

Taylor Heinicke tosses two TDs in Commanders' Week 13 tie

Taylor Heinicke II completed 27 of his 41 pass attempts for 275 yards, two touchdowns, and one fumble lost in Sunday's tie against the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Heinicke had his best performance in a while on Sunday and the Commanders trailing in the second half played a big role in his success. While he is still not a premier fantasy option by any means there may be some streaming potential when the Commanders are underdogs. Next up for the Commanders is a bye week before taking on the Giants again at home in Week 15, Heinicke is a last-resort streaming option in the opening round of most league's fantasy playoffs.

Taylor Heinicke tosses a pair of TDs in Commanders' Week 12 win

Taylor Heinicke completed 14 of his 23 pass attempts for 138 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in Sunday's win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Heinicke has not been using his legs at all which has put a major cap on his fantasy production. The other problem with Heinicke's fantasy stock is the Commanders have been winning games causing a negative game script in which Heinicke is handing the ball off consistently. Washington's QB is best left o the bench or on wavier wires moving forward unless an emergency starter is needed for your team.
