The Washington Redskins are in the midst of ushering in a new era.

Jay Gruden is out, and “Riverboat” Ron Rivera is in as head coach. Bruce Allen is out (after a decade), and the Redskins won’t hire a replacement General Manager until after the upcoming NFL Draft.

One position that continues to remain in flux for the Skins is quarterback.

The previous regime used the 15th overall pick in the 2019 draft on former Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins. Common logic would suggest that Haskins will get every opportunity to be the franchise’s long-term starter. But as we all know, common logic and the Redskins (under owner Dan Snyder) don’t always go hand in hand.

Haskins could still get the nod, but he will likely have to fight off some stiff competition for the job.

Here’s who the oddsmakers at DraftKings are picking to be Washington’s Week 1 starting quarterback in 2020.

Odds courtesy of DraftKings as of April 4, 2020.

Cam Newton (+1400)

Newton is now a free agent only four years after winning NFL MVP honors. His ties to Washington are clear: he has played his entire NFL career for only one (full-time) head coach — Rivera.

Newton has said he’ll take his time in deciding where he will play next, but don’t be surprised if he chooses the familiarity that would come with playing under Rivera in the nation’s capital.

Kyle Allen (+225)

The Skins traded for Allen this offseason, as it became clear that the 24-year-old signal caller was going to be the odd man out in Carolina. Allen has all the physical tools to be successful, and he is highly familiar with how Rivera operates.

Expect Allen to be in the thick of the Redskins’ quarterback competition in training camp.

Dwayne Haskins (-250)

Haskins is the incumbent, and will be given every opportunity to win the job.

Will he be able to do so? Only time will tell, but he will have to be much better than what he showed during his brief time as the team’s starter in 2019.


  • Tua Tagovailoa (+1600)
  • Andy Dalton (+3300)
  • Justin Herbert (+3300)
  • Jameis Winston (+3300)
