Shark Bites

Washington QB Taylor Heinicke has been activated from the COVID list, putting him on track to start Sunday night's game vs. the Cowboys. It's good news for the Washington offense, but Heinicke is just a low-end QB2 against the league's 4th-ranked QB defense.

Recent Shark Bites

Washington HC Ron Rivera said Monday that QB Taylor Heinicke will start this weekend's game vs. the Eagles but that QB Kyle Allen will "probably" play. Heinicke has bottomed out in his last 2 appearances, completing just 38.3% of his passes for 5.2 yards per attempt. This is obviously a situation to avoid in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Washington QB Taylor Heinicke is active and will start against the Cowboys tonight. He was activated from the COVID list on Thursday. Heinicke is just a low-end QB2 vs. Dallas’ 4th-ranked QB defense.

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.

Washington QB Taylor Heinicke is scheduled for a Monday MRI on the knee he injured in the loss to Dallas. But the belief going into that test is that he'll be available for this weekend's game vs. the Eagles, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. We should get another update on Heinicke later today.
