Washington Commanders 2022 Fantasy Football + IDP Depth Chart Dive

Jersey Giveaway


From The Football Team to the Commanders, (I still like Football Team better) Washington is surrounded by distractions from its owner, Dan Snyder. With an overall pretty weak roster, it will be an uphill battle. Is there any worthy fantasy or IDP options?


Offense

Quarterback

Carson Wentz

Carson Wentz is arguably a sizeable step-up for the Commanders at the quarterback position. Providing a much higher floor for fantasy managers than Heinicke. I have personally snagged him in a super-flex league or two as a QB3 for my squad(s). He will make for a better bye week fill-in than a fantasy starter. @Harding_3 9/8

Taylor Heinicke
Sam Howell

Sam Howell has the easiest path to snaps out of all of the rookie QBs this year. Even if Carson Wentz stays healthy, he’ll have a short leash. Howell is my favorite rookie QB for redraft and a top-3 dynasty rookie QB from this year’s class. @dynastysanta 8/7

Cole Kelley

Running Back

Antonio Gibson

There has been a healthy amount of doubt regarding Antonio Gibson’s position in the Commanders lineup when Robinson returns. I feel he can still maintain a flex-worthy role in this offense. He has never been a bad running back, finishing at around RB12-13 in his first two seasons as a pro. I look for him to slip more into the passing game and get his value in the open field this year. Don’t sleep on him! @Harding_3 9/8

J.D. McKissic
Brian Robinson
Jonathan Williams
Jaret Patterson
Reggie Bonnafon

Wide Receiver

Terry McLaurin

The 2019 third round pick for the Commanders has yet to have a good opportunity to shine. McLaurin is a guy I have typically avoided in the past. Though this year looks much different as far as potential goes for this Washington offense as a whole. I think McLaurin can produce similarly to a 2021 Michael Pittman for Carson Wentz. At cost, he should provide a nice return in, what will be, his best season by far. @Harding_3 9/8

Jahan Dotson
Curtis Samuel

Curtis Samuel is a sleeper option that should prove to be a useful ‘gadget’ player, if you will, for this offense. Don’t expect him to provide any stability in your lineup. But given the right matchup, he will make for a nice fill-in or streamer throughout the season. @Harding_3 9/8

Cam Sims
Dyami Brown
Alex Erickson
Dax Milne

Tight End

Logan Thomas

If Logan Thomas can stay healthy this season, he will see lots of end-zone opportunities this year. He was one of Heinicke’s favorite red-zone target when he was on the field, scoring a touchdown in three of his five 2021 games played. @Harding_3 9/8

John Bates

The Logan Thomas experience is rapidly coming to an end due to age and injuries. It was a great story, but it is John Bates’s turn now. Give me Bates over Thomas in both redraft and dynasty. @dynastysanta 8/7

Cole Turner
Sammis Reyes

After being introduced to fantasy football in 1999 as a wee lad still in middle school, I was hooked. I then began commishing my own keeper league 2 years later as a sophomore in high school, which has been running since. I used a computer program that required me to manually input weekly stats and had to print out summary packets each week to deliver to league owners at the bowling alley. I loved it. Stats and numbers and the competitiveness of being "right" about players was just an incredible high that not many other activities or hobbies have ever provided me. Around 2005 we migrated to the CBS sports site. I found a new love then, writing about our league. Each year after the draft I would "grade" each owner's team. It became almost as anticipated as the draft itself. Also, most weeks I'd recap the league's games and criticize start/sits while boasting my own accolades as long as I won that week. Dynasty, IDP & Superflex are the next evolutions in my fantasy football journey. I'm a Philly suburbs guy, GO BIRDS. Follow me on Twitter @dynastysanta
