Commanders must contain Olamide Zaccheaus

It's easy to overlook the other receivers in the Philadelphia Eagles offense. However, Olamide Zaccheaus recently offered a reminder of his hidden talents with a 34-yard touchdown grab against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers showing how the underrated pass-catcher can get behind the last line of a defense.

Zaccheaus is also an effective target between the numbers. He can win underneath and make yards after the catch, evidenced by 189 worth for the Atlanta Falcons last season before making his switch to the defending NFC conference champions.

The Washington jCommanders need good zone discipline and sure tackling to stop Zaccheaus from moving the chains. If he's allowed to dominate the sticks, the wideout will open up the game for bigger plays from DeVonta Smith and A.J. Brown.

Allowing those big plays will force Commanders' quarterback Sam Howell and the offense into a shootout. This would leave him at the mercy of a relentless pass rush led by two forces up front.
