Washington Football Team wide receiver Terry McLaurin had a big game in a loss to the Cardinals on Sunday. McLaurin caught seven passes for 125 yards and his first touchdown of the season. McLaurin led the team with 10 targets as the Washington offense lacks playmakers behind the second-year Ohio State Buckeye. As a result, McLaurin is an attractive option in fantasy as his target floor is very high. He has another good matchup lined up in Week 3 at Cleveland.
Washington Football Team wide receiver Terry McLaurin had a tough matchup in Week 1 vs Darius Slay and will face another top-flight cornerback in Week 2 at Arizona. Cornerback Patrick Peterson allowed just one catch on three targets last week and will undoubtedly be tasked with covering the one, true receiving threat on the Washington offense. Despite the tough matchup, fantasy managers shouldn't shy away from McLaurin in seasonal leagues. Washington should be in a position to throw the ball 35-plus times and there simply aren't enough weapons in this offense to take targets away from the second-year wideout. McLaurin is not a good DFS play this week, but he has one of the highest floors thanks to his target share making him a low-end WR2 for fantasy.
Washington Football Team wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught five passes for 61 yards in a Week 1 win over the Eagles. McLaurin was shadowed by new Eagles cornerback Darius Slay and struggled to consistently get open for Dwayne Haskins. The good news for McLaurin is he still led the team with seven targets. This will likely happen most of the season with McLaurin, as teams can focus all their coverage to stop the second-year receiver. On the other hand, most teams don't have a corner like Slay so McLaurin should have some big weeks mixed in as the go-to option in this passing game. He's a solid WR2 in fantasy but faces another solid secondary next week at Arizona.
Washington Football Team wide receiver Terry McLaurin enters 2020 as the top-dog in the offense and will look to improve on his strong numbers he put up as a rookie. The Ohio State Buckeye racked up 919 yards on 58 receptions, 15.8 yards-per-catch, and had seven touchdowns. He was the only Washington player with more than 58 targets and he had 93 targets. Washington didn't do much to upgrade their skill positions so Scary Terry should be in line for 100-plus targets in 2020. McLaurin proved last season he can produce with less-than-stellar quarterback play, so even if Dwayne Haskins doesn't improve in his second season, McLaurin should be a low-end WR2 for fantasy based on volume alone.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin said quarterback Dwayne Haskins "looks really good" and is happy with how far Haskins has come since last season. McLaurin had a solid rookie season catching 58 passes for 919 yards and seven touchdowns, despite inconsistent play from the QB position. McLaurin added that he thinks the Redskins will throw the ball downfield more in Haskins' second season, a good sign for the speedy McLaurin who ranked ninth in the NFL with 12.1 yards-before-catch last year. McLaurin is being drafted as the 26th receiver but has the skill to finish much higher, especially in non-PPR leagues, if he can get better QB play from Haskins.
Washington Redskins second-year wide receiver Terry McLaurin has impressed his new coach Ron Rivera so far. Rivera said that McLaurin has been, "a treat" and "a guy that could be on the verge (of stardom), he really is. He reminds me so much of a D.J. Moore that we had in Carolina. Just an outstanding young man." That's high praise from Rivera, who saw Moore get 135 targets in his second year in Carolina. McLaurin caught 58 passes last season for 919 yards and seven touchdowns despite seeing just 93 targets amidst mostly rough quarterback play. An uptick in targets would be excellent for McLaurin, and should be a benefit to quarterback Dwayne Haskins as well. McLaurin could be in for a huge sophomore season.
