Washington QBs Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen have failed to test out of COVID reserve. So Garrett Gilbert will start tonight’s game against the Eagles, according to multiple reports. Gilbert has 1 NFL start and 44 total pass attempts behind him. It should be a good week to have the Philly D in your fantasy football lineup

Washington QB Taylor Heinicke is going on the COVID list after testing positive. With backup Kyle Allen already on there, that will leave Washington starting Kyle Shurmur at QB Sunday against the Eagles, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, however, that Washington plans to start Garrett Gilbert, who is signing with the team today. Gilbert at least has some NFL experience: 1 start for last year's Cowboys. Neither would be a fantasy option, and the whole situation just might make Philadelphia the top team-defense play of the week.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott and the team Wednesday downplayed the significance of his shoulder strain. David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports that a "mild or Grade 1 strain" of the latissimus muscle -- which connects the upper arm to the spine -- "typically requires a couple of weeks to heal." Prescott has said it'll be a day-to-day question for his availability. Whether Dallas brings in another QB could be telling. For now, Garrett Gilbert will fill in with the starters.

The Cowboys have named QB Garrett Gilbert the starter for Sunday's game against the Steelers. He reportedly took the majority of 1st-team snaps during the week and will be backed up by Cooper Rush. It doesn't really matter for fantasy purposes. Gilbert has attempted 6 NFL passes since entering the league as a 6th-round pick of the Rams back in 2014. Even his college career included just a 49-45 TD-INT ratio. It's a good week to play the Steelers defense.

The Cowboys will have their 4th starting QB of the season vs. the Steelers on Sunday. Ben DiNucci is getting benched in favor of Garrett Gilbert or Cooper Rush, who will compete in practice this week, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Dallas' passing game has little chance vs. the swarming Steelers defense regardless of who's under center.
