WAS QB Taylor Heinicke - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Philadelphia Eagles
Alex Smith is questionable heading into the Week 17 matchup, which means Taylor Heinicke may get the start. Heinicke looked decent last week in mop-up duty, finishing with 137 yards and a touchdown with 22 rushing yards while only playing on 35% of the snaps. He also gets a favorable matchup against the Eagles (No. 21 aFPA) this week. But most of you are playing in your fantasy football championship, and do you really want to start someone making their second career start in their sixth NFL season? Heinicke is outside the top 20 QB options in Week 17.
