Terry McLaurin got the WR1 treatment for Washington in 2021. He ran a route on 91% of offensive dropbacks and finished second in the NFL in air yards share behind only Justin Jefferson (37%).
But the horrible quarterback play in the nation's capital limited McLaurin's fantasy production to fantasy WR25 status.
Many will point to new Washington quarterback Carson Wentz as just another retread of bad quarterback play coming TMC's way, but I am much more optimistic.
The former No. 2 overall pick has a proven track record of sustaining fantasy viable weapons - most notably Jonathan Taylor and Michael Pittman Jr. from a season ago. His 27 passing touchdowns, 7 interceptions and 67.9 PFF passing grade are miles better than Washington's 20 passing touchdowns, 15 interceptions and 58.3 PFF passing grade in 2021.
