WR - WAS
Week 3 Outlook
Washington wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught 11 of his 14 targets for 107 yards and one touchdown in Thursday's win over the New York Giants.
Fantasy managers who were worried about the change at quarterback in Washington saw McLaurin lead all receivers in targets, receptions, and receiving yards in addition to finding the end zone.
Washington wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught all four of his targets for 62 yards in Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Chargers.
Week 1 production aside, the question for McLaurin going forward is going to be how well he can perform with Taylor Heinicke filling in at quarterback for the injured Ryan Fitzpatrick for the foreseeable future. He will face off against an improved Giants secondary on Thursday night in Week 2.
Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin catches two passes for 25 yards in Thursday night's game against the New England Patriots.
McLaurin opened his day with a 21-yard catch from new QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. McLaurin is a talented player, and Fitzpatrick loves to make risky throws, so the two should have chemistry. The QB change will benefit Terry more than any other player on the team, as he was held back last season by conservative QB play. Fitzpatrick showed early that he will provide McLaurin every opportunity to make big plays.
Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin played through two high-ankle sprains in 2020.
McLaurin told Jim Rome on Thursday that he dealt with not one, but “two high-ankle sprains” last season. “I didn’t really use that as an excuse. I had plenty of examples around my building to not use certain things or ailments as an excuse,” said McLaurin. Despite playing with two-high ankle sprains last season, McLaurin eclipsed the 1,000 yard mark for the first time in his career. The 25-year-old is one of the best WRs in football and is excepted to be fully recovered by the time training camp starts. McLaurin hauled in 87 receptions on 134 targets for 1,118 yards and four touchdowns across 15 games in 2020. He’s currently 14th among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus draft rankings, but that could number could rise if Washington is able to improve their QB situation.
Terry McLaurin caught six of seven targets for 75 yards in a 31-23 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Saturday night.
McLaurin was efficient with his seven targets but was unable to find the end zone against the Buccaneers on Saturday. The second-year wide receiver is a rising star and will be a focal point of Washington's plans heading into the offseason.
