McLaurin is a talented player that probably didn't live up to his expectations in college. He made some big plays his senior season, though, and was on the radar of NFL teams. McLaurin remains a bit raw but he is a fast player. He runs pretty good routes, can make plays after the catch and is speedy. The Redskins have some openings at receiver, so McLaurin has a legit chance to earn a starting job. If he doesn't earn that, he will at least be the No. 3 or 4 receiver.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: McLaurin has some potential as a rookie in an offense that needs playmakers at receiver. He could emerge, especially since he already has a rapport with Dwayne Haskins (played with him in college). He could be worth a late-round grab as a No. 4 or 5 fantasy receiver. Expect around 45 receptions for 600 yards and four or so scores.

Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin hauled in five receptions on nine targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. He has now been targeted 16 times in Washington's first two games, the most of any Redskins wide receiver. The safe play heading into Week 2 was to exercise caution following his electrifying debut in Week 1, but now that he's posted consecutive solid outings and seen a ton of volume in an improving Redskins pass offense, it's time for McLaurin to be taken seriously in fantasy. If he's still available in your league, go get him. Just keep in mind that he's got the Bears coming to town next week, so he might not be a lock for your starting lineup right away.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin will look to repeat an impressive Week 1 performance in which he racked up 125 yards and a touchdown on five receptions. While McLaurin is the most exciting wideout in Washington at the moment, this pass offense is still collectively an unknown quantity. The Redskins aired it out considerably more often (and looked considerably better doing it) than anyone thought they would against the Eagles. We shouldn't necessarily be using that one game as a measuring stick for what to expect going forward. If McLaurin is available in your league, you can make a worse free agency move than picking him up and seeing what happens. As for starting him against the Cowboys this week, you are banking on his ceiling if you do so.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin hauled in five of seven targets for 125 yards and a touchdown on Sunday in Philadelphia. The highlight of his day was the touchdown: a 69-yard bomb from Case Keenum that put the Redskins up 17-0 early in the second quarter. It's only one game, but the production from McLaurin and the Redskins passing game as a whole is a sight for sore eyes. Washington hasn't looked this good through the air since Kirk Cousins left town. McLaurin should be a priority for fantasy owners browsing the waiver wire this week, as it's evident after Week 1 that he can be a big part of the Redskins offense.
Redskins' WR Terry McLaurin had 5 receptions for 125 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's loss in Philadelphia.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin is set to join Paul Richardson and Trey Quinn as the team's starters at the position. The rookie McLaurin was evidently impressive enough in camp that the Redskins felt comfortable cutting ties with Josh Doctson. Both McLaurin and his new team will hope for better results than the Doctson years produced. As for McLaurin's Week 1 potential, it's best to stay away. The Redskins are a run-first team, and this iteration of their pass offense has no history of being a viable fantasy well. At the very least, we're waiting to see how things unfold for a week or two with Case Keenum at the helm and a largely unproven bunch of pass catchers.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin missed Thursday's preseason game with a tailbone injury, but he returned to practice Sunday. McLaurin has yet to factor into either of the Redskins' first two exhibitions, but early reports on his training camp performances have caused some intrigue as to what he can do in game action. McLaurin is a rookie behind an underwhelming collection of wideouts on Washington's depth chart, and if he can find a sustainable role in the offense, there is appeal from a fantasy standpoint. Keep an eye out to see how heavily featured McLaurin is in Thursday's third preseason contest.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin has been receiving praise from both coaches and teammates for his consistent play so far during training camp. In addition to his speed, the rookie out of Ohio State has shown off good hands and solid work on special teams as well. He is trying to learn all three wide receiver positions to make himself stand out from a versatility perspective. Trey Quinn, Josh Doctson and Paul Richardson are all viewed as low-end fantasy wideouts, and McLaurin could easily ascend the depth chart in short order if he carries over his good work into preseason games. Keep an eye on him in his return to the state of Ohio.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin has been a standout performer through one week of training camp, according to Redskins.com. The Redskins have sorely lacked a legitimate number-one wide receiver for some time now, with the Josh Doctson experiment never having gotten off the launchpad. With McLaurin turning heads this early as a rookie, one can't help but wonder if he even has all that far to go to become a preferred option in the passing game. Washington's receiving corps is one of the least inviting groups for fantasy owners on draft day, and that doesn't figure to change drastically between now and Week 1. That said, the rookie McLaurin at least offers some intrigue as an unknown quantity, as opposed to an otherwise well-documented collection of lackluster wideouts. It's at least worth monitoring McLaurin going forward.
