The Washington Commanders head into the 2022 NFL season with several interesting changes, but none is bigger than the one at quarterback. Carson Wentz comes in hoping to prove he can return to MVP-level play with a supporting cast capable of creating explosive moments regularly.

Here’s a look at the depth chart for the 2022 Washington Commanders ahead of your fantasy football drafts.

Biggest offseason changes

Wentz coming in at quarterback has shifted the outlook for this team. The Commanders also rebranded this offseason, so this marks a new era for the franchise as a whole. There’s a lot of smoke off the field, but Washington is hopeful to get to the playoffs this season.

Biggest question marks for fantasy football

Who takes over as the No. 2 wide receiver behind Terry McLaurin? The Ohio State product signed a big contract this offseason and is entrenched as the top pass-catcher in this offense. Dyami Brown and Jahan Dotson are candidates to take over, and whoever does could ultimately be the difference in fantasy football matchups near the end of the season.
