Washington Commanders QB Sam Howell is likely to have more time to develop his game before being thrust into action as the team takes a more long-term approach, according to head coach Ron Rivera. ''We told him, 'hey look, this is an opportunity to come in, no pressure to play right away so you can develop and grow. And who knows, down the line at some point, you're going to get that opportunity. But right now, we feel very good with Carson [Wentz] and very good with Taylor [Heinicke] as our two quarterbacks,'' said Rivera on The Rich Eisen Show on Tuesday, May 3.
Huddle Up: Despite being a projected Day 2 pick in the draft, Howell slipped to the fifth round where the Commanders finally stopped the skid. It seems they are fully committed to Wentz as the starter after trading for him this offseason, but given the volatility he showed in 2021, a change under center wouldn't be unprecedented. Heinicke would likely be the next man up, but Howell could provide some stiff competition during training camp. Howell doesn't have fantasy value outside of a very deep stash in superflex formats, especially if the Commanders stay true to their word of working toward the long term.

North Carolina QB Sam Howell was selected by the Washington Commanders with the 144th overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Howell probably will be the team's No. 3 quarterback in 2022 but could be the long-term QB for Washington if he can develop. Fantasy players can avoid him this season but may want to keep an eye on him.
