Curtis Samuel

Curtis Samuel

WR / Washington Commanders
Commanders' Curtis Samuel (hamstring) cleared for Sunday

What it means:

Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel (hamstring) is available for Week 18 against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Samuel sat out practice on Thursday, but he was a full participant on Wednesday and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's contest. The 27-year-old receiver had his best game of the season versus the Cowboys in Week 9, with 9 catches on 12 targets for 100 yards. Samuel is the WR27 in numberFire's Week 18 rankings and our models project him for 8.3 FanDuel points, with 6.4 targets, 4.1 receptions, and 45.9 yards. The Cowboys are allowing the sixth-fewest FanDuel points per game to wideouts and they also have the sixth-best pass defense in the league, according to our opponent-adjusted efficiency rankings.

WR / Washington Commanders
Curtis Samuel (hamstring) sitting out Thursday for Commanders

What it means:

Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel (hamstring) is not practicing on Thursday for Week 18 against the Dallas Cowboys. Samuel was a full participant on Wednesday, so the Commanders could be giving him a veteran maintenance day. Dyami Brown might be asked to play more snaps if Samuel is sidelined on Sunday in Washington. Samuel is the WR28 in numberFire's Week 18 rankings and our models project him for 8.2 FanDuel points, with 6.4 targets, 4.1 receptions, and 45.6 yards. The Cowboys are allowing the sixth-fewest FanDuel points per game to wideouts and they also have the sixth-best pass defense in the league, according to our opponent-adjusted efficiency rankings.

Sam Howell

Sam Howell

QB / Washington Commanders
Sam Howell starting for Commanders in Week 18 clash with Cowboys

What it means:

Washington Commanders quarterback Sam Howell will start Week 18's game against the Dallas Cowboys. Howell will be under center for Washington's final game of the season against the Cowboys on Sunday. He will be facing a Dallas' team that can clinch the NFC East title with a win. When he faced the Cowboys in Week 12, Howell connected on 28 of 44 pass attempts for 300 yards and 1 interception. Howell will face a Dallas defense ranked seventh overall in numberFire's Power Rankings. Dallas' pass defense ranks sixth.

Jacoby Brissett

Jacoby Brissett

QB / Washington Commanders
Jacoby Brissett (hamstring) ruled out for Commanders in Week 17; Sam Howell to start

What it means:

Washington Commanders quarterback Jacoby Brissett will not play Sunday in the team's Week 17 game against the San Francisco 49ers. Brissett entered the weekend with a questionable tag. Now, after evaluating the veteran through pregame warmups, the team has decided to make him inactive. It'll be Sam Howell who returns to a starting role under center, and Jake Fromm will serve as the backup. Our models project Howell for 229.1 passing yards, 1.1 touchdowns, 0.9 interceptions and 14.6 FanDuel points.

What it means:

Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson (hamstring) is not listed on Week 17's injury report against the San Francisco 49ers. Robinson is on track to return after he was sidelined two games with a hamstring injury. Expect Robinson to resume his normal early down role on Sunday. In a matchup versus a San Francisco unit allowing 19.1 fantasy points per game to running backs, Robinson's FanDuel salary stands at $6,800.

Jacoby Brissett

QB / Washington Commanders
Washington's Jacoby Brissett (hamstring) questionable in Week 17

What it means:

Washington Commanders quarterback Jacoby Brissett (hamstring) is questionable for Week 17's game against the San Francisco 49ers. After suffering a hamstring injury during Friday's practice, Brissett's availability is suddenly in limbo. Expect Sam Howell to start under center versus a San Francisco unit allowing 13.6 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks if Brissett is unable to go. Brissett's current projection includes 23.6 completions for 1.1 touchdowns and 248.5 yards and 2.9 rushing attempts for 11.7 yards.
