Carson Wentz518.1321.73652.622.89.8450.3191.11.26244.29
Taylor Heinicke43.728.1301.51.791.
Sam Howell20.412.4146.90.780.552.

Carson Wentz: About to play for his third team in as many seasons, Wentz is coming off a solid, if not spectacular, season. His TD% (5.2) and INT% (1.4) were both the second-best of his career. While he averaged a career-low 209.6 passing yards per game, he also threw a career-low 30.35 pass attempts per game in Indianapolis' run-first offense. His passing volume should increase in Washington, but can he maintain his efficient 27-to-seven TD-INT ratio?


Antonio Gibson201.1874.86.1339.1319.91.8186.6
J.D. McKissic50.3221.31.1352.5418.32.6112.59
Brian Robinson Jr.105.1451.92.849.171.80.476.36
Jaret Patterson22.495.20.592.

Antonio Gibson: Gibson had 258 carries for 1,037 yards and seven touchdowns and added 42 receptions for 294 yards and three touchdowns in 2021, but he also lost four fumbles last season as well. Not only did the Commanders re-sign J.D. McKissic to a two-year contract, but they used a third-round pick on Alabama's Brian Robinson Jr. With the Commanders use of McKissic on third downs and Robinson in short-yardage situations, Gibson's workload is almost guaranteed to be scaled back from last year's 300 touches.

J.D. McKissic: While he missed six games last season, McKissic has 123 receptions, 163 targets and 986 receiving yards in 27 games as a Commander. Even if he's third in line for carries behind Gibson and Robinson, he has some stand-alone value, especially in PPR formats.

Brian Robinson Jr.: Like with Gibson (in 2020), the Commanders used a third-round pick on Robinson, who ran for 1,343 yards and 16 touchdowns for Alabama last season.


Terry McLaurin801088.
Jahan Dotson49.8639.83.81.811.70.07113.27
Curtis Samuel38.9465.5316102.40.899.04
Dyami Brown17.72441.600042.85
Cam Sims10127.10.900023.11
Dax Milne2.530.80.20005.53

Terry McLaurin: In spite of Washington's mediocre quarterback play, McLaurin has averaged a 17-game pace of 82/1,142/6 through his first three NFL seasons. The former third-round pick has outplayed his draft pedigree, which has led to a contract extension, but he goes into 2022 with questionable quarterback play again.


Logan Thomas39.14473.200083.45
John Bates17.6192.71.300035.87
Cole Turner2.728.70.30006.02
Sammis Reyes0.910.30.10002.08

Logan Thomas: Thomas tore his ACL in December and missed a total of 11 games in 2021. In his other season in Washington, the converted college quarterback finished with 72 catches for 670 yards and six touchdowns. Thomas has appeared in 97% or more of the snaps in 11 of his past 15 games. Two of four games with sub-97% snap rates during that span were games in which he sustained what would become a multi-week injury. When he's on the field, he's nearly an every-snap player, but it's still unclear if he'll be ready for Week 1.
