Washington Commanders QB Carson Wentz (finger) was designated to return from injured reserve on Wednesday, Nov. 23.
Huddle Up: In Wentz's absence, Taylor Heinicke has taken full control of Washington's starting job after winning four of five games, leaving Wentz to ride the pine. It's possible Heinicke starts to self-destruct and paves the way for Wentz to return, but for now the latter has zero fantasy value. Meanwhile, Heinicke's production has been too erratic to trust him as a starter in anything more than two QB leagues.

Washington Commanders QB Taylor Heinicke remains likely to start in Week 11 against the Houston Texans for now. However, head coach Ron Rivera told reporters Tuesday, Nov. 15, that no decision will be made about the starting quarterback moving forward until Carson Wentz (finger) returns to practice and he hears from team doctors about what they have decided regarding Wentz's recovery.
Huddle Up: Rivera could obviously choose to slow-play this situation and keep Heinicke as the starter until the wheels fall off at some point, but it is at least mildly interesting that he is being non-committal right now. Expect Heinicke to start against the Texans and for the Commanders to take it week-to-week after that. Regardless of which one starts, it will be hard to trust either one for fantasy purposes outside of two-quarterback or superflex leagues.

Washington Commanders QB Carson Wentz (finger) was placed on injured reserve on Saturday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Wentz fractured his finger last week and is expected to miss four to six weeks with the injury. Taylor Heinicke will get the ball in Wentz's absence, which will be a slight downgrade for Washington pass-catchers. Heinicke provides some upside thanks to his ability to run but isn't a suggested starting option after posting lackluster production as the starter in 2021.

Washington Commanders QB Carson Wentz (finger) did not practice on Friday, Oct. 21, and has been ruled out for Week 7.
Huddle Up: No surprise here, as Wentz is expected to miss four to six weeks with a fractured finger. Taylor Heinicke will take the reins from Wentz and presents some upside thanks to his ability to run. However, he's nothing more than a potential bye-week fill-in.

TE John Bates (hamstring), RT Samuel Cosmi (thumb), and WR Jahan Dotson (hamstring) are listed as questionable.

Washington Commanders QB Carson Wentz (finger) will likely need four to six weeks to recover from the broken finger he suffered in Week 6 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: It is Taylor Heinicke time again in Washington. Given how poorly Wentz has played over the last month, it is hard to know at this point if Heinicke is much of a downgrade - if he is at all. Heinicke accounted for himself nicely in 2021, throwing for 3,419 yards with 20 touchdowns and 15 interceptions after Ryan Fitzpatrick went down for the count in last year's opener. While Heinicke should be considered nothing more than a bye-week fill-in, he could be a solid QB2 option in superflex or two-quarterback leagues.

Washington Commanders QB Carson Wentz (finger, shoulder) sustained a fractured ring finger on his right hand in Week 6's game versus the Chicago Bears, according to a source. He is slated to visit a hand specialist in Los Angeles and his status going forward has yet to be determined.
Huddle Up: Wentz has also been battling a shoulder injury, in addition to his fractured finger. If he is unable to play in Week 7's game versus the Green Bay Packers Oct. 23, backup QB Taylor Heinicke will receive the starting nod and could be an option for fantasy lineups in deeper two-quarterback leagues. Fantasy owners who have Wentz on their roster should continue to monitor this situation to determine if he will miss any games.

Washington Commanders QB Carson Wentz (hand, shoulder) is scheduled to meet with a doctor to have his throwing hand and shoulder examined, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor the situation to see if Wentz will miss any time because of the injuries. He was held to under 100 yards in the last game and should only be an option in two-quarterback leagues moving forward.
