Our Fantasy Football Projections will be viewable by both position and team.
Below you will find our 2023 fantasy football projections for the Washington Commanders.
Sam Howell: Slipping to the fifth round of the 2022 NFL Draft, Howell started the season finale and enters 2023 as Washington's starter. Howell completed only 11-of-19 pass attempts for 169 yards (8.9 Y/A), a touchdown and an interception in his lone regular-season start, but he also ran for 35 yards and a touchdown on five carries. With a talented receiving corps, a new offensive coordinator and some mobility, Howell has a chance to deliver better-than-expected results in 2023.
|Brian Robinson Jr.||208.2||884.9||6.25||22.1||171.7||0.8||159.01|
|Chris Rodriguez Jr.||24.7||105||0.62||7.7||57.9||0.3||25.66|
Brian Robinson Jr.: Given what he endured last August (shot multiple times in the leg in a carjacking incident), Robinson had an incredibly impressive rookie season and shouldered a heavy workload, once healthy. He averaged 17.1 carries per game, although he was less involved as a receiver (12 targets in 12 games).
Antonio Gibson: Fumbling issues plagued Gibson's 2021 season, and he was inefficient last season (3.66 YPC) with career lows in both touches (195) and yards from scrimmage (899). Gibson has a minimum of 36 catches in each season with a career-high 46 last year, however, and coach Ron Rivera referred to him as a "matchup nightmare for the opponent." With J.D. McKissic no longer on the roster, Gibson could set career highs in receiving.
Terry McLaurin: Just shy of the 1,000-yard mark as a rookie (2019) when he missed two games, McLaurin has since finished every season with more than 75 receptions and 1,000 yards. While he has averaged 80.3 receptions and 1,120.7 yards over the past three seasons, he has only 14 total touchdowns. McLaurin's (turf toe) Week 1 status is uncertain.
Jahan Dotson: Dotson missed five games in his rookie season, but the 2022 first-rounder finished with 35 receptions for 523 yards (14.9 Y/R) and seven touchdowns. Dotson has plenty of breakout appeal as he heads into his sophomore campaign.
Curtis Samuel: Samuel played limited offensive snaps (84) in his first season (2021) with the Commanders as he dealt with injuries, but he had 64 receptions for 656 yards and four touchdowns and added 187 rushing yards and a score in 2022. In his past three healthy seasons, he has finished as fantasy's WR34 (2022), WR25 (2020) and WR36 (2019). Perhaps he won't have a fourth top-36 season in five years, but he'll likely outperform his ADP if he can stay healthy.
Logan Thomas: Thomas is a couple of seasons removed from a 72/670/6 breakout campaign, but he tore his ACL in 2021 and has a combined 57/519/4 in 20 games over the past two seasons. Going into his age-32 season, he may be the fourth option in the passing game behind Terry McLaurin, Jahan Dotson and Curtis Samuel, but Cole Turner has some sleeper appeal too.
