Team Needs

1. Quarterback
2. Cornerback
3. Offensive Line

Make it the third team in three years that moved Carson Wentz to the bench. The rest of the roster looks strong, but they badly need a leader to steer the ship from under center.

Key FA: DT Daron Payne, QB Taylor Heinicke, LB Cole Holcomb

Depth Chart Fantasy Impact

QB Carson Wentz found himself traded for the 2nd consecutive offseason. Washington sent Indianapolis a trio of draft picks for a veteran that coach Ron Rivera believes to be an upgrade over Taylor Heinicke. Wentz endured some struggles but started all 17 games for the Colts and exceeded 5% in passing-TD rate for the 3rd time in his 6 seasons.

Behind Wentz, Washington waited until Round 5 of the draft to add UNC QB Sam Howell.

Wentz gets (arguably) a better set of pass-catchers in Washington than he had with the Colts. In addition to lead wideout Terry McLaurin, the Commanders should get a healthy Curtis Samuel. The former Panther signed a 3-year deal in free agency last offseason but then missed basically all of 2021 with a nagging groin injury. Samuel has spent 4 of his 5 NFL seasons with Rivera and 3 of those 4 with OC Scott Turner.

Washington also spent a 1st-round pick on WR Jahan Dotson, seeking to upgrade a unit that got little from 2021 rookie Dyami Brown and featured Adam Humphries as 2nd-leading target collector behind McLaurin.

TE Logan Thomas faces a tough road back after tearing his left ACL on Dec. 5, an injury that also required meniscus repair. Behind Thomas, Washington returns 2021 rookie John Bates and adds 5th-round pick Cole Turner. He tallied 111 catches and 19 TDs over his final 2 seasons at Nevada after beginning college as a WR.

Ricky Seals-Jones – who led Washington TEs in targets and catches last season – left for the Giants in free agency.

The backfield added Brian Robinson in Round 3 of the draft. After spending his first 4 Alabama seasons working behind future NFLers Damien Harris, Josh Jacobs and Najee Harris, Robinson broke through for 271-1,343-14 rushing and 35-296-2 receiving as a 2021 senior. Since drafting him, Rivera has compared the Robinson-Antonio Gibson pairing with his former Carolina duo of DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. Washington also retained receiving RB J.D. McKissic after he initially agreed to a 2-year pact with the Bills at the beginning of free agency. McKissic led Washington RBs and ranked 2nd on the team across positions in catches last year, despite losing the final 6 games to injury.

Up front, the Commanders imported former Jaguars G Andrew Norwell on a 2-year deal and former Steelers G Trai Turner on a mere 1-year pact.
