Fantasy Impact: Samuel figures to fill a role similar to what Gabe Davis held who left Buffalo in free agency. He'll likely be a WR3 with upside for fantasy managers, but he may be more valuable to the Bills from a real life standpoint.

Fantasy Impact: With Drew Lock signing with the Giants, Howell figures to likely backup Geno Smith now for the Seahawks. Howell spent the past two seasons with the Commanders, but couldn't quite find his way as a starter with Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Brissett returns to New England where he started his career backing up Tom Brady. The Patriots have said they plan to sign a veteran and draft a rookie this offseason. Brissett figures to compete with Bailey Zappe for the starting job for now, and we'll see if they draft a quarterback in April.

Fantasy Impact: Gibson’s tenure with the Commanders comes to an end as he heads to the Patriots. The 25-year-old struggled last season, tallying just 265 yards and one touchdown on 65 carries. Gibson will likely serve as the backup to Rhamondre Stevenson.

Dan Quinn informed 2023-24 offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy that the Washington Commanders would not bring him back for the 2024-25 season. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Last year, Bieniemy spent his first season as an NFL offensive coordinator outside of Kansas City in Washington, getting to call plays for the first time in the NFL as well. The Commanders saw some success on offense, notably first-year starter Sam Howell’s passing yardage and touchdowns, but also struggled in other areas like overall consistency, utilization of particular offensive players, high pressure rates and turnovers. Bieniemy likely showed enough in his season to earn a job elsewhere in 2024, but with a new staff and front office coming in, Quinn will look elsewhere at the OC position.

Joey Slye made his lone field goal and added an extra point in a 38-10 loss to Dallas in Week 18.

Fantasy Impact: Slye connected on a 36-yard field goal in the regular-season finale. He wraps up his 2023 campaign with 19 field goals on 24 attempts. An unrestricted free agent this offseason, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Commanders try to upgrade the position this offseason.

Logan Thomas caught one of his two targets for nine yards in a 38-10 loss to the Cowboys in Week 18.

Fantasy Impact: Thomas was held to 36 or fewer receiving yards in six straight games to finish off the season. The veteran tight end wraps up his campaign with 55 catches for 496 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games. He has one more season on his contract so he should be back as the team's starting tight end in 2024.

Jahan Dotson caught two of his three targets for 17 yards in a 38-10 loss to the Cowboys in Week 18.

Fantasy Impact: Dotson capped off a disappointing sophomore season with yet another slow outing. The 2022 first-round pick finishes the season with just 49 catches for 518 yards and four touchdowns. He will hope to bounce back in 2024 with what is likely to be a new quarterback for the Commanders.

Category: Game Recaps


Terry McLaurin caught six of his eight targets for 56 yards in a 38-10 loss to the Cowboys in Week 18.

Fantasy Impact: McLaurin wraps up his fifth NFL season with 79 catches for 1,002 yards and four touchdowns. The receiving yards total was his lowest since his rookie year back in 2019. McLaurin should bounce back in 2024 as the Commanders are expected to improve their quarterback situation this offseason.

Brian Robinson Jr. carried the ball nine times for 25 yards and caught all three of his targets for 10 yards and a touchdown in a 38-10 loss to the Cowboys in Week 18.

Fantasy Impact: Robinson found the end zone on a one-yard catch early in the second quarter. The veteran running back was a pleasant surprise from a fantasy perspective in 2023 as he finished with 733 rushing yards, 36 catches, 368 yards, and nine all-purpose touchdowns. Robinson still has two years left on his rookie deal and should open the 2024 season as the team's lead back.

Fantasy Impact: Rodriguez had an MRI on his ankle earlier this week, and now the decision has been made to end his rookie campaign early. The sixth-round pick out of Kentucky saw action in 13 games during his first NFL season, rushing for 247 yards (4.8 Y/A) and two touchdowns on 51 carries.

Dyami Brown caught his lone target for zero yards in the Commanders’ 45-15 loss to Miami.

Fantasy Impact: Brown has struggled to carve out a role in the Commanders’ offense this season. The 24-year-old is not seeing the field consistently to be fantasy viable right now. Fantasy managers can leave Brown on their league’s waiver wire.

Commanders CB Emmanuel Forbes is officially inactive for a Week 13 matchup with the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact: Forbes will miss his second consecutive game due to an elbow injury. The rookie corner back will likely be replaced by Danny Johnson in a tough matchup with the Dolphins’ wide receivers.

Fantasy Impact: The Commanders currently have a few defensive lineman that are listed on the injury report for Week 11. Pryor will likely see the active roster on game day should one of their staters be unable to suit up against the Giants.

The Commanders have elevated RB Derrick Gore from their practice squad. (Source: Ralph Vacchiano on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Gore will likely see the active roster on Sunday with Antonio Gibson likely out due to a toe injury. Fantasy managers should expect Gore to work in a limited role as Brian Robinson should see the bulk of the carries in Week 11.
