Dwayne Haskins Note

We got to see Haskins against the Eagles late last season where he had the best game of his young NFL career. He threw for 261 yards, two touchdowns, and then added another 26 yards on the ground. That's all fine and dandy, though the Eagles have overhauled their defense and upgraded their cornerback unit tremendously. Darius Slay and Nickell Robey-Coleman immediately offer veteran stability to a unit that allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to wide receivers last year. The area to be concerned for Haskins is the fact that he's running a brand-new offense with zero game action. The Eagles' opponents averaged just 60.4 plays per game last year, which was the fifth-lowest mark in the league. We aren't going to see much no-huddle from the Washington offense right out of the gate. Sure, there's the element of surprise, but knowing he doesn't have an offensive line to protect him from the Eagles pass-rush, it's wise to leave Haskins out there for someone else to play.
