QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Carson Wentz515.2319.93632.222.679.7948182.41.2241.83

Sam Howell29.117.8209.51.110.795180.113.64

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?

RUNNING BACKS

Antonio Gibson194.2844.85.9232.6246.21.3168.72
J.D. McKissic50.3221.31.1352.5414.42.6112.2
Brian Robinson Jr.91.43932.479.169.70.468.04
Jonathan Williams43182.81.082.216.40.128.1

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. It appeared that Brian Robinson Jr. was going to supplant Gibson for early-down work before before being shot multiple times in an attempted robbery. The unfortunate incident means that Gibson will once again handle the bulk of early-down work, by default, for at least as long as Robinson is sidelined.

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, he has stand-alone value, especially in PPR formats.

Brian Robinson Jr.: The Commanders used a third-round pick on Robinson, who ran for 1,343 yards and 16 touchdowns for Alabama last season. While he had appeared to leapfrog Antonio Gibson on the depth chart, Robinson will start the season on the reserve/NFI list and miss at least the first four games of the season although his timeline remains unclear.

WIDE RECEIVERS

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.

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Logan Thomas40.7484.13.400089.16
John Bates17.7192.81.300035.93
Cole Turner2.728.70.30006.02
Armani Rogers220.50.10003.65

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. When he's on the field, he's been nearly an every-snap player. Even if he isn't ready for Week 1, "the expectation is that he'll return for Week 2 at the latest."
