Heinicke, who started hot after taking over for the injured Wentz, has turned the ball over eight times over the team's last six games - including three picks and five fumbles. Meanwhile, Wentz broke his right ring finger in October and has been the backup the last few weeks after getting cleared. The Commanders are 7-7-1, clinging to the NFC’s seventh and final playoff spot, and now need Wentz to come through, Schefter went on to say. Wentz at least has some superflex value going forward.
WAS QB Taylor Heinicke - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 16 at San Francisco 49ers
Taylor Heinicke didn't have a great outing last week vs. the Giants. He finished with 249 yards and a touchdown, adding 33 yards on the ground. Heinicke also ended up with two lost fumbles. We wouldn't expect Heinicke to get much better in Week 16 as he draws a tough matchup vs. the 49ers who have given up the third-fewest average fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. San Francisco has given up just 13 passing touchdowns to QBs this year, which is second-fewest in the league. Heinicke is one of the worst options at QB in Week 16.
