Washington Football Team
Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen has cleared the COVID-19 protocols and is able to return to the field, according to a source. Allen was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday and will return to the active roster. Starter Taylor Heinicke was also activated on Thursday and will resume starting duties in Week 16 against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night, so Allen will return to backup duties this weekend. Both QBs missed the Week 15 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday when Garrett Gilbert stepped in to lead the offense. Allen has played in just one game this year, going 4-for-9 for 53 yards in the first meeting against Dallas two weeks ago when Heinicke was injured briefly.
Washington Football Team quarterbacks Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen did not clear COVID-19 protocols in time, so Washington's top two quarterbacks will be inactive on Tuesday night. This will put Garrett Gilbert in line for his first start of the season after he was signed off the New England practice squad. Gilbert will go against the Philadelphia Eagles who have given up the sixth-fewest passing yards this season, so he doesn't offer any appeal in fantasy lineups. Washington could take a run-heavy approach in this one, so the pass-catchers could be in for a tough game with a new quarterback under center. Terry McLaurin will likely see a lot of Darius Slay in coverage, which puts him into the low-end WR2 range given the current state of the offense.
The Washington Football Team believes that quarterback Kyle Allen, who is on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, has a good chance to return and play in Week 15 since the game was moved to Tuesday, according to a source. Allen and starter Taylor Heinicke remain in the league's COVID protocols. Allen entered the Week 14 game against the Dallas Cowboys when Heinicke was injured and went 4-for-9 for 53 yards and was sacked once in his only action of the season. The Philadelphia Eagles haven't been bad against opposing passers in terms of yardage allowed this year, so Allen wouldn't necessarily have a great chance to go off in his first start of the season if he's cleared and Heinicke isn't by Tuesday. But Allen under center for Washington would be a huge upgrade over the recently signed Garrett Gilbert, that's for sure.
Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen completed 10-of-22 passes for 100 yards and no touchdowns in the team's preseason finale against the Baltimore Ravens. The Washington offense struggled in this one as they failed to score a touchdown. Inefficiency in both the passing and running game limited Washington to just 128 passing yards and 45 rushing yards all night. Allen should be the favorite for the No. 3 quarterback on the depth chart as Steven Montez saw limited action on Saturday night. The former Carolina Panther has some familiarity with head coach Ron Rivera, so he seems to be the logical option behind Ryan Fitzpatrick and Taylor Heinicke.
Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen will get his first action of the preseason on Friday against the Cincinnati Bengals. Allen suffered a gruesome ankle injury last year and continued his rehab all throughout the offseason. In his four starts last season, the 25-year-old threw for 610 yards and four touchdowns, leading Washington to just one win. With the arrival of Ryan Fitzpatrick and the emergence of Taylor Heinicke, the former Carolina Panther will likely start the season as the No. 3 quarterback on the depth chart. Allen is unlikely to see any playing time this season which takes him completely off the fantasy radar.
Washington Football Team quarterbacks Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen (ankle) will battle it out in the preseason for the backup role behind the team's unquestioned starter Ryan Fitzpatrick. Allen is dealing with the ankle injury he sustained during a training camp practice, so it could be an uphill battle for him to secure the backup role ahead of Heinicke. Heinicke signed a contract extension this offseason after his impressive performance in the playoffs against the eventual Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers, meaning the team envisions a role for him. The preseason will be a crucial part in the determination of who wins the job, so whenever the two are on the field, they must make the most of it. Fitzpatrick will play in the preseason opener, but it is safe to say he won't see much action after that. Heinicke and Allen should be given plenty of opportunities to show what they can do. Heinicke is probably the favorite for the backup role, and he would have some QB2 intrigue in deeper two-QB leagues if Fitzpatrick missed time with an injury.
The Washington Football team tendered quarterback Kyle Allen as an exclusive-rights free agent on Wednesday. Allen completed 69 percent of his passes for 610 yards and four touchdowns in four starts for the team last season, but a dislocated ankle ended his 2020 campaign. He will return for the 2021 season alongside Taylor Heinicke and Steven Montez. The 25-year-old Allen needed surgery on his ankle and is expected to be fully recovered by April. Dwayne Haskins Jr. and veteran Alex Smith are now out of the picture in D.C., which could give Allen the leg up for the starting job under center if he's healthy this summer. However, Heinicke also impressed during a playoff start and Allen won't have much fantasy upside as a QB2 if he's the starter.
Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen (ankle) continues to make progress in his rehab from a dislocated ankle and is expected to be fully recovered by April. Allen was able to complete 69 percent of his passes with four touchdowns and a 99.3 rating in his four starts last season before his season-ending injury. Washington has exclusive rights to Allen for the 2021 season, so he should be back with the team. With the future of Alex Smith unknown, the 24-year-old Allen could open next season as the team's starter, with Taylor Heinicke backing him up. Washington won't be the most attractive place to search for a QB in fantasy, however, because there will be plenty of competition under center, especially if Smith returns for another season.
Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen (ankle) is having surgery on the dislocated ankle that he suffered in the Week 9 loss to the division-rival Giants and he will be out for the rest of the season, according to a source. Allen is likely looking at a four-month recovery, but he should be ready in time for the 2021 season. He also had a small fracture in the ankle. In four starts this year, the 24-year-old went 60-for-87 for 610 yards, four touchdowns and an interception. Veteran Alex Smith, who nearly had his career end due to a gruesome leg break in 2018, threw for 325 yards against the Giants in relief of Allen, but he also tossed three interceptions. It remains to be seen if Washington will go with Smith or Dwayne Haskins Jr. under center moving forward, but whoever it is should be considered only a low-end QB2.
The initial diagnosis on Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen's injury is a dislocated ankle, but Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network says the fracture is small, which appears to make the injury slightly better than it initially looked. Allen is going to miss time, though, and we should expect someone else -- likely Alex Smith, unless the team surprisingly goes back to Dwayne Haskins -- to quarterback this team for the rest of the 2020 season. Whoever takes over under center -- either Smith or Haskins -- will be a low-end QB2 for fantasy managers. It's also potentially bad news for top receiver Terry McLaurin.
Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen (leg) has left Sunday's game against the New York Giants with what appears to be a fairly significant leg injury. If Allen is unable to return to this game or moving forward, expect Alex Smith will take over as the team's starting quarterback. Smith is currently in at quarterback for Washington. Allen was 5-for-7 for 61 yards at the time of the injury.
Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen picked up his first win as a starter in Week 7 and will look to carry that momentum into a matchup with the Giants. Allen had his best statistical performance of the season versus New York in Week 6, as he threw for 280 yards and two touchdowns. Allen also had two turnovers in that game, but those are his only two giveaways this year, as he has been mostly efficient, if unspectacular, since taking over for Dwayne Haskins. He doesn't have a lot of upside and has no business starting in one-quarterback fantasy leagues, but managers in two-QB formats could do worse than starting Allen in a solid matchup.
Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen had an efficient game in a blowout win over the Cowboys on Sunday. Allen went 15-for-25 passing with two touchdowns and no interceptions while adding 11 rushing yards. While it was a good game for Allen, he's not a quarterback to chase in fantasy. The Dallas defense has been bad this season allowing the most points-per-game in the NFL and while it was nice to see Allen take advantage of a good matchup, most fantasy managers should be able to find a QB with more upside. Washington will have a bye in Week 8 before a matchup with the Giants where Allen will be a QB2 for fantasy.
Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen will get the nod under center for the second-straight week and will face a good matchup versus a struggling Cowboys Defense. Allen played well in his first start last week throwing for 280 yards and two touchdowns with an interception. This week, he'll face another soft matchup versus Dallas who's pass defense has just one interception against 14 passing touchdowns allowed. Allen won't light up the scoreboard, but he's a viable starter in two-QB fantasy leagues.
Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen completed 31 passes on 42 attempts for 280 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in a loss to the Giants on Sunday. Allen added eight rushing yards and also lost a fumble in the contest. While Allen played well, all anyone will remember from this game is a failed two-point conversion attempt with 36 seconds left in which Allen appeared to have a running lane to the end zone, but instead threw an incomplete pass. Despite the rough ending, Allen likely played well enough to remain the starter over Alex Smith and Dwayne Haskins. Allen will be a streamable QB2 in two-quarterback leagues with a good matchup with Dallas in Week 7.
Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen wasn't able to lead the team to a win against the New York Giants on Sunday. He completed 31 of his 42 passes for 280 yards and two touchdowns, but he had an interception and lost a fumble. After the game, Washington head coach Ron Rivera said that Allen would remain the team's quarterback going forward.
Washington Football Team head coach Ron Rivera said that quarterback Kyle Allen (arm), who was replaced by Alex Smith in the Week 5 loss to the Rams because of an arm injury, practiced on Wednesday and will start in Week 6 against the Giants. Smith will remain as Allen's backup this Sunday, with Dwayne Haskins Jr. serving as the No. 3 for the second straight week after being demoted from the starting job. Washington has declined to say whether they are looking to trade Haskins, the 15th overall pick in 2019, but multiple sources said there's been no formal trade request from Haskins nor has a team called about Haskins' availability. Even though the Giants are 0-5, they've allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points to QBs this year, making Allen a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues for his second start of the season.
Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen (arm) remains sore from a shot he took to his non-throwing arm in the Week 5 loss to the Rams, but he's expected to be good to go in Week 6 against the Giants, barring a setback. Allen was pulled from the game on Sunday because of his injury, but head coach Ron Rivera said that Allen will remain the team's starter as long as he's healthy. Alex Smith, who made his first appearance in almost two years after a gruesome injury that almost cost him his leg, was average in relief of Allen, completing nine of 17 passes for 37 yards for a passer rating of 58.7. He was also sacked six times. Allen will be a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues if he gets another start against New York in Week 6.
Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen rushed for a seven-yard touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Beyond that, though, it was a forgettable day. He was 9-for-13 for 74 yards and left the game after taking a hard hit from Rams corner Jalen Ramsey. Though cleared to return, the team let veteran backup Alex Smith play the rest of the way. Allen is expected to start next week, but is a low-end QB2 at best moving forward.
Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen (head) took a hard hit in the first half of Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams. He left the game and was replaced by Alex Smith. Even though Allen was cleared to return to the game, head coach Ron Rivera chose to stick with Smith. After the game, Rivera announced that Allen would retain the starting quarterback position for the team going forward as long as he was healthy. It's not surprising news as Smithstruggled in the game and rookie Dwayne Haskins was benched for Allen just a week ago.
Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen has been cleared to return for the second half after exiting after a hard hit in the first half. With Allen off the field, fans got the chance to see Alex Smith on the field for the first time in two years. Allen should be back in as the lead quarterback for the second half, though we'll see how that goes. (Update: head coach Ron Rivera is sticking with Smith for now.)
Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen took a hard hit to the head from Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey, sending him off the field and putting veteran Alex Smith in at quarterback. It's unclear if Allen will return to the game, but Smith -- whose NFL career looked in jeopardy in 2018 after a devastating leg injury -- is going to get at least a brief chance to play football.
The Washington Football Team is making a change under center heading into Week 5 against the Rams. Quarterback Kyle Allen will get the start, while Dwayne Haskins Jr. will head to the bench. Not only has Haskins been demoted, but he'll be the third-string QB behind Alex Smith. The former first-rounder has completed 89 of 149 passing attempts for 939 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions through four games, averaging a paltry 6.4 yards per attempt. Allen, 24, made some starts for head coach Ron Rivera in Carolina when Cam Newton was hurt, but he might not be that big of an upgrade over Haskins in an offense with few playmakers outside of Terry McLaurin and Logan Thomas. Allen will be a low-end QB2 streamer in superflex leagues, while the Rams Defense remains a very attractive fantasy unit this weekend.
The Washington Redskins acquired quarterback Kyle Allen from the Carolina Panthers on Monday in exchange for a fifth-round pick, according to a source. Allen became expendable when the team signed XFL quarterback P.J. Walker on Monday. With Dwayne Haskins expected to be the team's starter under center entering the 2020 season, Allen will enter as the backup with Alex Smith's (leg) NFL future still up in the air. Allen went 5-7 as the fill-in starter for Cam Newton last year in Carolina and completed 62 percent of his passes for 3,322 yards, 17 touchdowns and 16 interceptions in 12 games started. The 24-year-old looked overmatched towards the end of the season and won't have any fantasy appeal in redraft leagues as long as he's a backup in D.C.
The Carolina Panthers re-signed quarterback Kyle Allen to a one-year deal on Tuesday. Allen was set to be an exclusive-rights free agent. The Panthers now have Cam Newton, Will Grier and Allen under contract for 2020. Allen made 12 starts last year after Newton aggravated his foot injury in Week 2, and he became the first QB in NFL history to win his first five starts with no interceptions. He then went on to lose seven of his next eight starts and had nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions down the stretch. Grier started the final two games in 2019 and went 0-2. Newton is expected to be ready for offseason workouts in April, and he should be the team's starter to begin the season, health permitting.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
