Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith said he will take a few weeks to decide if he wants to play next season.
Huddle Up: Smith took over the starting job during the middle of the season, but it is not known if he would be the starter next season if he returns. He would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he keeps the starting job.

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 QB Alex Smith (calf) is having his calf evaluated Saturday, Jan. 9, but his condition appears to be trending in the wrong direction. QB Taylor Heinicke would start the Wild Card playoff game versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if Smith is not deemed ready to play.
Huddle Up: Smith has been a limited practice participant this week but is still continuing to experience soreness in his calf. Regardless of who starts this game at quarterback for Washington, fantasy owners should avoid this situation altogether.

Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith (calf) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 7, and is listed as questionable for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: Smith may be a game-time decision this week, so fantasy players should monitor the situation over the next few days. He probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues even if he is active for the game.

Washington Football Team QBs Alex Smith and Taylor Heinicke could rotate in some form or fashion in the NFC Wild Card game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Huddle Up: Smith wasn't an appealing option in playoff leagues or DFS to begin with, so any kind of rotation effectively makes him the worst selection on the board among the 12 starting quarterbacks playing this weekend.

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.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin (ankle) is a 'toss-up' regarding his availability for the team's Week 17 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a report Saturday. McLaurin is dealing with a high-ankle sprain and is listed as questionable on the team's Week 17 injury report.
Huddle Up: McLaurin missed Week 16, has been unable to practice this week, and this looks as if it will come down to a true game-time decision Sunday night. Due to that late kickoff and the uncertainty, though, fantasy GMs should go ahead and roll with another WR/flex option earlier in the day.

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson (toe) is likely to play Sunday, Jan. 3, in Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a source. He is listed as questionable on the team's Week 17 injury report.
Huddle Up: Gibson returned after a two-game absence and rushed 10 times for 61 yards and caught three passes for eight yards in the Week 16 loss to the Panthers. The trouble is that Washington plays Sunday night in the final game of regular season so those hoping to use Gibson as an RB2 will need to wait it out and/or have another Sunday night option available.

Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith (calf) is expected to start Sunday, Jan. 3 in the Week 17 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Good news for the WFT and the rest of the offense, but Smith himself is no more than a low-end QB2 fantasy consideration this week. He has only one game with more than 20 fantasy points in the seven he's played in this season.

Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith (calf) was participating in individual drills at the start of practice Friday, Jan. 1, per source, in preparation of his heaviest workload of the practice week.
Huddle Up: We should know later Friday how things went with Washington's Week 17 injury report due out. Smith is a low-end QB2 consideration if he's able to start against the Eagles on Sunday night.

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson (toe) is not participating in the team's inside practice Friday, Jan. 1, per the team public relations staff.
Huddle Up: Yikes ... Gibson also didn't practice Thursday, but head coach Ron Rivera later wrote that off as a rest day, and now we'll have to wait and see how his absence on a key day in Friday is characterized. Gibson returned after a two-game absence to play Week 16, but his Week 17 status is still very much up in the air.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin (ankle) is not practicing Friday, Jan. 1, per the team's public relations staff.
Huddle Up: With McLaurin unable to get on the field again Friday, it obviously increases the likelihood that he'll miss a second straight game. Perhaps it will come down to a pregame decision, but the WFT will be playing Sunday night in the final contest of the regular season and most fantasy GMs still playing will need to make a lineup decision long before then.
