Washington had to start Haskins in Week 16 despite Haskins violating COVID rules by not wearing a mask at a nightclub. To top that off, Haskins was awful in a game that could have sealed the division for Washington. He was eventually replaced by Heinicke. Smith is expected to be back in Week 17 when the team faces the Eagles. The team just needs a win to win the division.
WAS QB Dwayne Haskins - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 16 vs. Carolina Panthers
Dwayne Haskins drew the start last week and was OK, finishing with 295 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. It's possible Alex Smith returns this week as he fully practiced on Friday. No matter who starts, they won't be a great fantasy option. Washington quarterbacks haven't put up huge numbers this year, and it may get worse this week as Terry McLaurin could be inactive. Haskins or Smith wouldn't be the absolute worst option at QB this week, but there are plenty of better options available in Week 16.
