QB - WAS
This Week Outlook
Washington quarterback Taylor Heinicke completed nine of his 18 passes for 120 yards, no touchdowns, and no interceptions in Sunday's win over the Giants.
Heinicke had a quiet game in what turned out to be an easy win, which helps explain why he only threw the ball 18 times. He finishes the season with 3,419 yards passing, 20 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions while adding 313 yards and another touchdown on the ground. He is the frontrunner to be Washington's starter in 2022, but the team will likely bring in some kind of competition this offseason.
Washington quarterback Taylor Heinicke completed 27 of his 36 pass attempts for 247 yards, no touchdowns, and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. He also rushed for 14 yards.
Heinicke was efficient on Sunday but was unable to punch in any touchdowns and was mostly held in check in the second half. Through 15 games this season, Heinicke has completed 312 of his 476 pass attempts for 3,299 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions while rushing for another 310 yards and one touchdown. With Washington expected to rest starters in a meaningless Week 18 game, it's unclear if Heinicke will start next week against the Giants.
Speaking Thursday, Washington offensive coordinator Scott Turner said there is no plan for the team to rotate quarterbacks.
This comes after Ron Rivera said Monday that Kyle Allen will "probably" play at some point over the final two games. Heinicke is off the fantasy football radar unless you are in a deep 2-QB or superflex league.
Washington quarterback Taylor Heinicke completed seven of his 22 pass attempts for 121 years, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.
Washington got blown out by the Cowboys on Sunday, and Heinicke didn't start the second half with his team already trailing 42-7. Heinicke is expected to start for Washington in Week 17 against the Eagles, but he may have a short leash if he struggles again.
Taylor Heinicke has cleared COVID-19 protocols and will return to practice on Thursday.
Heinicke hasn't yet been officially activated off the Reserve/COVID-19 list, but should be later on Thursday. He'll obviously immediately return as Washington's starting quarterback. It's highly unlikely that fantasy managers in a single-QB league are going to need to rely on him in the semifinals of their playoffs, but he's not the worst option in a two-quarterback league in a matchup with Dallas where Washington will likely be chasing points.
