Washington Football Team QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will open training camp as the starting quarterback but will have to compete for the job during the preseason, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick should be the clear favorite for the job because of his experience and will have solid group of pass catchers in the offense. He can be a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues if he wins the job.

Free-agent WR Adam Humphries (Titans) signed a one-year contract with the Washington Football Team Thursday, March 25, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Humphries should be the slot receiver for Washington and likely will be a reliable target for Ryan Fitzpatrick. He could be a late round option in deeper fantasy leagues.

Free-agent WR Curtis Samuel (Panthers) signed a three-year contract worth $34.5 million with the Washington Football Team Wednesday, March 17, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Samuel caught 77 of 97 targets for 851 yards and three touchdowns with the Carolina Panthers last season and added 200 yards and two touchdowns on 41 rushing attempts. He'll be the No. 2 option behind WR Terry McLaurin in QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's offense. He'll be a WR3 target in 2021 fantasy drafts unless Washington is able to further upgrade the QB position.

Impending free-agent WR Curtis Samuel (Panthers) is a target for the Washington Football Team, according to JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington.
Huddle Up: A slow early free-agent market at wideout is part of the reason Washington might be in the running for Samuel, but the Football Team was always a logical landing spot for him because of his Carolina ties to head coach Ron Rivera and offensive coordinator Scott Turner. The fit also makes sense for Samuel; he would be expected to easily beat out the likes of Cam Sims for No. 2 duties behind stud Terry McLaurin.

Impending free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Dolphins) reportedly agreed to terms to a one-year contract worth $10 million that could be worth as much as $12 million with incentives with the Washington Football Team on Monday, March 15.
Huddle Up: There weren't many places for free-agent quarterbacks in search of a starting job this offseason, but Washington was one of them. While Taylor Heinicke was impressive in the Football Team's playoff loss, it just wasn't enough of a sample size for Washington to feel good about possibly relying on him as a starter. Washington can be expected to address quarterback in the draft as well, but Fitzpatrick will likely enter camp as the frontrunner to start Week 1.

Miami Dolphins impending free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick plans to play next season.
Huddle Up: Several teams will be looking for a starting quarterback this offseason, and Fitzpatrick could find a job as a bridge quarterback. He can be considered a No. 2 quarterback in deeper fantasy leagues if he is a starter in 2021.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin was targeted 83 more times than any other receiver on the team in 2020.
Huddle Up: McLaurin has delivered two strong seasons despite lackluster quarterback play, and while the situation under center probably won't be better in 2021, he has proven he can deliver WR2 production regardless.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin said he dealt with two high ankle sprains during the 2020 NFL season.
Huddle Up: McLaurin still played in 15 regular season games despite the injuries and finished with 1,118 yards and four touchdowns. He likely will be working with a new quarterback next season but will still be the main option in the passing game. He can be at least a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Miami Dolphins impending free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is not expected to re-sign with the Dolphins because he believes he can at least compete for a starting job with a team next season, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick has played well at times over the last few season and may have a chance for a starting job since several teams have uncertain quarterback situations. He would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he is able to find a job.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, an unrestricted free agent this offseason, still believes he can bed a successful starter and has spoken recently with the Denver Broncos, according to a report.
Huddle Up: If the Broncos don't swing a blockbuster deal for a Deshaun Watson or Russell Wilson, they likely will bring in a veteran QB to compete with Drew Lock. Fitzpatrick, who will turn 39 in November, certainly fills that bill, and the Broncos likely would become the latest team where Fitzmagic is the most effective option in young/old QB rotation but still has to share the starts.

Tennessee Titans WR Adam Humphries was released Thursday, Feb. 25.
Huddle Up: Humphries was limited to seven games this season because of injury but can be a decent slot receiver for a team when healthy. He should be able to find a new team but may only be a late round pick in deeper leagues.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin is 'one of the better up-and-coming wideouts' in the NFL, according to San Francisco 49ers CB Richard Sherman, and Sherman believes McLaurin is being held back by Washington's lack of weapons. 'If he had anybody else beside him and they couldn't just double him and cloud him all the time he'd be special,' Sherman said.
Huddle Up: McLaurin has amassed more than 2,000 receiving yards in his first two seasons despite being the only consistent weapon for a carousel of quarterbacks. He is no worse than a high-floor WR3, and his ceiling will only go up if Washington can make some upgrades on offense.

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel averaged 7.4 targets over the final 10 games of 2020 after averaging 4.6 targets in the first six games.
Huddle Up: Samuel topped 50 receiving yards just once in his first seven games in 2020, but he had at least 68 yards in six of his final eight contests, including three 100-yard efforts. He is set to hit free agency this offseason, but if he enters 2021 with a prominent role in an offense, he will be a sleeper to target in the middle rounds of drafts.

Washington Football Team TE Logan Thomas ranked second among tight ends in both receptions (38) and targets (50) over the final five games, and his 342 receiving yards in that span ranked third at the position.
Huddle Up: Thomas emerged as a must-start TE1 down the stretch, and in 2021, he will have a golden opportunity to pick up where he left off as the No. 2 option in the passing attack behind Terry McLaurin.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin has recorded 2,037 receiving yards since entering the league, becoming the 21st player since 2000 to top 2,000 yards in their first two seasons.
Huddle Up: After hauling in 58 catches for 919 yards as a rookie, McLaurin logged 87 receptions for 1,118 yards in 2020. McLaurin has already shown he is no worse than a WR3, and if Washington can improve its quarterback situation, his ceiling will jump significantly.

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic's 589 receiving yards and 80 receptions trailed only New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara among running backs in 2020.
Huddle Up: McKissic's 7.4 yards per reception were far from impressive, but he did finish in the top 25 in catches. Unless Washington dramatically upgrades its offensive firepower in the offseason, McKissic should have value as a PPR flex option, especially in deeper leagues.

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson (toe) said he will not need to undergo surgery on his injured toe this offseason.
Huddle Up: Gibson played well as the starting running back for Washington this season and should have the role again next season. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues in 2021.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin (ankle) is officially active for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: McLaurin should be one of the main targets in the passing game, but his fantasy value will take a hit with Taylor Heinicke as the starting quarterback. He could be a starting option in some leagues but is not a must-start option.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 7, and is listed as questionable for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: McLaurin should be ready to play in the playoff game, but fantasy players can check the inactive list for his official status. He should be one of the top options in the passing game for Washington and can be a starting option in most fantasy leagues.

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson (toe) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 7, and is listed as questionable for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: Gibson was able to play in the regular season finale and should be in uniform in the Wild Card playoff game. He can be a starting running back or flex option in playoff fantasy leagues.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's chances of returning to the team next season are 'slim and none,' according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.
Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick has played some of the best ball of his career in Miami, but neither the NFL nor the Dolphins are going to change their opinion about him being anything more than a bridge quarterback, especially after turning 38 years old in November. The Dolphins also would prefer Tua Tagovailoa not having to look over his shoulder, which may be the biggest consideration of all. Look for Fitzpatrick to find yet another employer this offseason.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 6.
Huddle Up: McLaurin was targeted at least six times in every game during the regular season and should receive a similar workload in the Wild Card playoff game. He can be considered a starting option in fantasy leagues.

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson (toe) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 6.
Huddle Up: Gibson should be able to play in the playoff game as long as he does not suffer a setback over the next few days. He is one of the focal points of the offense and should be a starting option in fantasy leagues this week.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, who will be among the team's unrestricted free agents this offseason, is likely to be asked to return. However, the 38-year-old has been non-committal about whether he wants to play in the 2021 season.
Huddle Up: "Fitz-magic" was effective at times, and he also served as a mentor for rookie Tua Tagovailoa. Whether he returns to the organization or moves along to play somewhere else, he would still only be a No. 2 QB in most fantasy leagues at this juncture of his career.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin (ankle) is officially active for the Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: McLaurin has been sidelined for several weeks because of the injury, so it is not known if he will be able to handle his normal workload. He is the team's top receiver when healthy and can be a starting option in leagues.

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson (toe) is officially active for the Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: Gibson should receive most of the work at running back even though he did not practice this week. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin (ankle) is expected to play in Week 17's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a source.
Huddle Up: McLaurin did not play last week versus the Carolina Panthers and was listed as questionable on the injury report this week despite not practicing in any of the team's three practice sessions. Even though this is a must-win game for Washington, McLaurin should be viewed as a very risky fantasy option, especially since Washington won't play until Sunday night. Fantasy owners should have another Sunday night option available for their lineups in case McLaurin's status takes a turn for the worse closer to game time.
