  • Sam Howell Nearly Completes Comeback in Preseason Debut

    Washington Commanders quarterback Sam Howell passed for 145 yards while completing nine of his 16 attempts during the preseason loss to Carolina. He also added three carries for 19 yards and two touchdowns. Howell saw no action for the entire first half but took over for most of the second. The fifth-round rookie did his best to make the game close as he led two fourth-quarter touchdown drives, resulting in two rushing touchdowns for himself. As a player projected to be a first-round pick at one point, Howell has a shot at taking over the backup quarterback job from Taylor Heinicke before the start of the season. If his impressive play continues, his fantasy stock could be on the rise as an insurance policy for Carson Wentz in deep Superflex leagues.

  • Carson Wentz Solid in Preseason Debut

    Washington Commanders quarterback Carson Wentz completed 10-of-13 passes for 74 yards with no turnovers in Saturday's loss to the Carolina Panthers. The newly acquired quarterback kept most passes close to the line of scrimmage while spreading targets around to multiple receivers. Before his substitution, Wentz led a 14-play, 82-yard drive to give the Commanders their first touchdown. While decision-making has been an issue for the former No.2 overall pick as of late, this performance provides some hope for what he has to offer in his seventh NFL season. Wentz is a borderline QB2 and is mainly an option in superflex league formats.

  • Carson Wentz, Commanders pass-catchers see chemistry improve in camp

    Washington's QB is refining his touch and timing with top receiver Terry McLaurin as the season draws near.

  • Carson Wentz's Stock Is Down

    Washington Commanders quarterback Carson Wentz's inaccuracy concerns have followed him to Washington with an assortment pack of misfires in training camp. Wentz has routinely bricked passes in various directions in practices with no defense on the field. It hasn't been an every-play issue for Wentz, and his strong arm opens up more downfield plays in the team's playbook, but his accuracy issues are a real concern. He's still learning offensive coordinator Scott Turner's system and what to expect from his receivers, so perhaps Wentz will gain more consistency as training camp and the preseason progress. For what it's worth, head coach Ron Rivera said the team isn't "overly concerned" about Wentz, but fantasy managers may be avoiding him as a QB2 in fantasy drafts. Wentz will play in the team's preseason opener against the Carolina Panthers.

  • Carson Wentz Struggles Under Pressure Wednesday

    Washington Commanders quarterback Carson Wentz didn't throw into traffic when under duress at training camp practice on Wednesday, but he struggled to make plays at times when under pressure, even without the threat of being hit. It's a weakness that he's shown with the Eagles and Colts in his past stops. Even short passes to running backs went wide or short on Wednesday. On the flip side, he flashed his powerful arm and showed a good connection with Terry McLaurin, who missed offseason workouts due to his contract situation. The 29-year-old has a new opportunity in D.C. and some weapons to work with, but until he proves otherwise, he should be seen as a low-end QB2 in fantasy.

  • Chase Roullier Expects To Be Ready For Camp

    Washington Commanders center Chase Roullier (leg) expects to be good to go for training camp. While the 28-year-old acknowledged he still has "some strides" to overcome, it appears he's moving in the right direction to be ready for Week 1 in September. Roullier is considered one of the best in the league at the position, so when the team lost him for the remainder of last season due to a fractured left fibula, it struggled to fill the void. However, his anticipated return will undoubtedly make life easier for Carson Wentz, Antonio Gibson, J.D. McKissic, and Terry McLaurin in 2022-23.

  • Carson Wentz Fitting In With Offense

    Washington Commanders new quarterback Carson Wentz has fit right in with the offense during offseason workouts. "I think probably the biggest thing in terms of watching Carson is how he got acclimated to us," head coach Ron Rivera said. Wentz hasn't been perfect this offseason, but his skill set is allowing the team do things that they couldn't last year. He has been pushing the ball downfield and giving his receivers chances to make plays while also establishing rapport with teammates. The Commanders have been impressed with how fast he's learned the playbook as well. Take it with a grain of salt during non-padded practices, but the 29-year-old will have some weapons to work with in D.C. But after his epic collapse in Indy last year, fantasy managers should be treating him as a low-end QB2 until he proves otherwise.

  • Carson Wentz Likes Targeting Jahan Dotson

    Washington Commanders quarterback Carson Wentz has made it clear in offseason practices that he loves targeting rookie wide receiver Jahan Dotson. Dotson is consistently getting open for his quarterback during organized team activities and is developing some nice chemistry with Wentz early on. Fantasy managers should take this with a grain of salt, as teams aren't even in pads yet, but it's something to take note of as we get closer to training camp. The 22-year-old first-rounder should have a decent-sized role behind No. 1 wideout Terry McLaurin in his rookie season for the Commanders. McLaurin hasn't been taking part in offseason workouts either, so it has given Dotson more opportunities to build chemistry with Wentz.

  • Carson Wentz Stands Out At OTAs

    New Washington Commanders starting quarterback Carson Wentz took his first practice reps with the team during its first on-field workouts on Tuesday. He connected with the overall No. 16 pick in the draft, wide receiver Jahan Dotson, as well as second-year wide receiver Dyami Brown, for solid gains. Pro Bowl defensive tackle Jonathan Allen offered his praise regarding the impact Wentz is making right from the start. "He's everything you want from your starting quarterback," Allen said. "He's a leader. He talks to every guy on the team, not just the receivers or the running backs or the offensive line. He talks to the defensive guys, and he wants to be here, and he wants to win. Really not much more I could ask from him." Ben Standig of The Athletic reported how Wentz immediately stood out relative to last year's starter, Taylor Heinicke, due to his size and arm strength, while hinting that his velocity on both deep routes and underneath throws should expand the offensive playbook.
