Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith completed 17-of-25 passes for 166 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 11 game against the Cincinnati Bengals in a home win.
Huddle Up: Smith has been a feel-good story, returning from a gruesome injury to make it back to a starting role in the NFL. Still, he is nothing more than a low-end QB2 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams starting two quarterbacks. Washington travels to Dallas on Thanksgiving in Week 12.

Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith completed 38-of-55 passes for 390 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions in his first start since that devastating leg injury in 2018.
Huddle Up: Smith has thrown for 300 yards in consecutive games for the first time in his career. He is still more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, but he isn't a bad bye-week replacement or low-cost DFS option if the matchup is favorable.

Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith went 24-for-32 for 325 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions against the New York Giants in Week 9 after replacing QB Kyle Allen (ankle).
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Smith or Dwayne Haskins will be the starter for Week 10. Fantasy players will be able to find better options and can avoid all of the Washington quarterbacks.

Washington Football Team QB Kyle Allen (leg) was carted off the field after suffering a leg injury during the Week 9 game. He has been replaced by QB Alex Smith.
Huddle Up: It appeared like Allen suffered a serious injury, so he may miss the rest of the season. Smith would be the favorite to keep the starting job but should not be more than a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Washington Football Team QB Kyle Allen will start Week 6's game against the New York Giants, with QB Alex Smith serving as his backup. QB Dwayne Haskins will be inactive for the second consecutive week, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Allen was removed from the injury report after being a full participant in all three of the team's practice sessions during the week following a shoulder injury in Week 5's game. Although he appears to have a favorable matchup this afternoon, Allen is not worth starting outside of deep two-quarterback fantasy leagues and DFS contests as an inexpensive flier.

Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith completed 9-of-17 passes for 37 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Rams after taking over for the injured QB Kyle Allen (arm).
Huddle Up: It's uncertain if Allen will be forced to miss time, if the team will go back to Dwayne Haskins or if Smith gets a start in Week 6. Either way, it's a great story seeing Smith return from a gruesome injury to get back onto the field.

Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith may take over the starting job in a few weeks depending on how he performs during practice, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Smith is working his way back from a serious leg injury but may take over the starting job if Kyle Allen struggles over the last few weeks. He probably would not post great numbers if he starts but could be a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues if he starts.
