The Washington Football Team expects starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to miss 6-8 weeks” with hip injury (per Adam Schefter)
Fantasy Impact: Fitzpatrick left the game after only attempting 6 passes for 13 yards. Taylor Heinicke stepped in for Fitzpatrick against the Los Angeles Chargers, throwing for 122 yards and 1 touchdown on 15 attempts. Heinicke will likely get the starting nod with Fitzpatrick out moving forward. The change at quarterback certainly caps Terry McLaurin’s ceiling but boosts Antonio Gibson who saw 20 carries Sunday.
