Hold it Just One Minute on Sam Howell?

Commanders HC Ron Rivera admitted that second-year signal-caller Sam Howell is having a strong camp, but left the door open on Jacoby Brissett potentially winning the starting job when he said not to “sleep on Jacoby Brissett”.

Ron Rivera should be fired for those comments because it’s Sam Howell SZN, but the truth remains that Brissett could see playing time this year in a few different ways, and that Howell hasn’t locked down his position as the QB1 just yet.

Regardless of which quarterback is starting this year, the Commanders' receivers figure to be in the best hands they’ve been in in years, with Howell showing promise in his lone start last year against the Cowboys and Jacoby Brissett proving in 2022 that he can lead not just a fantasy-relevant offense, but a fantasy-friendly offense, as well.

Howell brings a higher ceiling as a fantasy QB than Brissett by virtue of his youth and rushing ability, but Brissett would be a quality QB2 if he would end up drawing starts in Washington this season.
