  • Terry McLaurin Disappoints In Favorable Matchup

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught four-of-six targets for 48 yards along with one carry for five yards in Sunday's win over the Atlanta Falcons. While McLaurin was Washington's leader in receptions and receiving yards, the performance was one of his lowest yardage totals of the season. With Taylor Heinicke as his quarterback, the 27-year-old is seeing much more work. However, the ceiling for large performances has been fairly low as of late with Heinicke operating as a game manager for this offense. McLaurin should have better performances down the road, but his last two weeks have been pretty mediocre.

  • Terry McLaurin A Strong Start In Week 12

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin is a great play in Week 12. The Commanders are taking on the Atlanta Falcons, a defense that has been dreadful against the pass. So far this season, Atlanta's defense is allowing the second most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. As long as the fourth-year receiver continues to get open and receive heavy usage with quarterback Taylor Heinicke, he's a fantastic play against the Falcons in Week 12.

  • Terry McLaurin Goes Quiet In Second-Half

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught four-of-seven targets for 55 yards in Sunday's win over the Houston Texans. The 27-year-old appeared to be on his way to a strong performance in Week 11, with 55 receiving yards in the first half. Unfortunately, he wouldn't record another yard for the rest of the game, as quarterback Taylor Heinicke had a tough time finding him. While this was a disappointment, especially after such a strong first half, there's still optimism heading into Week 12. Washington will take on the Atlanta Falcons next week, a defense that struggles against the pass. With that matchup in mind, McLaurin could be in for a splash performance.

  • Terry McLaurin Shines In Week 10

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught eight of his 11 targets for 128 yards during Monday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles. The 27-year-old was rolling in Week 10, as he set his season-high for receptions and receiving yards. The Eagles normally shut down opposing wide receivers, but McLaurin was getting open at will as he had over 75 yards at halftime in this one. With this strong performance, and Taylor Heinicke possibly having the starting job for the rest of the season, the fourth-year receiver could be in for more solid fantasy outings. The Commanders are taking on the Houston Texans in Week 11. McLaurin will aim to continue this fantastic play against their underrated secondary.

  • Terry McLaurin A Low-End WR2 In Week 10

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin will face the tall task of taking on the Philadelphia Eagles secondary in Week 10. The Eagles have had one of the most feared cornerback units in the NFL this season, with Darius Slay and James Bradberry shutting down opposing receivers. During their last matchup in Week 3, the 27-year-old had a solid game with six receptions for 102 yards. However, that stat line was almost entirely gained during garbage time with the win out of reach. McLaurin should be seen as a low-end WR2 in Week 10, and fantasy managers will hope for a repeat of his garbage time production.

  • Terry McLaurin Leads Commanders In Targets

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught five-of-nine targets for 56 yards during Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The 24-year-old certainly saw his fair share of the targets in this game as he led the team with nine. Unfortunately, that didn't lead to a strong statistical output with just over 50 receiving yards on the day. The former Buckeye should still be considered a solid WR2, but these performances are always a possibility while this Washington offense continues to be inefficient. With a matchup against the tough Philadelphia Eagles on the way in Week 10, McLaurin could be in for another disappointing performance.

  • Terry McLaurin A WR2 In Week 9

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin could be in for another solid scoring output on Sunday. Since Taylor Heinicke took over as starting quarterback, the former Buckeye has been improving his fantasy totals. In Weeks 7 and 8, McLaurin has averaged 17.5 PPR points per game. Now, the Commanders are taking on the Minnesota Vikings in Week 9, a defense that has been allowing the seventh most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers this season. With his recent performances and the matchup in mind, McLaurin should be a solid WR2 in Week 9.

  • Terry McLaurin Pulls Down Clutch Catch In Week 8 Win

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught six-of-eight targets for 113 yards in Sunday's win over the Indianapolis Colts. The former Buckeye had himself an impressive day as he led the Commanders in targets while going over 100 receiving yards for the second time this season. His day was particularly highlighted by a huge 33-yard reception that set the Commanders up at the one-yard line for the game-winning touchdown. With Taylor Heinicke at quarterback, McLaurin has been seeing two more targets and over 30 more receiving yards per game compared to his averages from when Carson Wentz was passing the ball. As long as Heinicke is leading this Washington offense, the fourth-year receivers' trajectory should be moving up. McLaurin will aim to continue his strong production in Week 9 against the Minnesota Vikings.

  • Terry McLaurin A Solid WR2 In Week 8

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin could be in for another solid performance in Week 8. In Week 7, the 27-year-old saw eight targets from quarterback Taylor Heinicke on his way to his best fantasy performance of the year. With the quarterback change, the hope is that McLaurin continues to have these solid performances. The Commanders are taking on the Indianapolis Colts this week, a defense that is allowing the least fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. That statistic doesn't spell great things for McLaurin. However, their Week 7 opponent in the Green Bay Packers are no slouches against wide receivers either, and he played pretty well against them. We'll see how McLaurin fares in Week 8, but he's still a WR2 for fantasy lineups.

  • Terry McLaurin Catches Long Touchdown In Week 7

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught five-of-eight targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Green Bay Packers. While it wasn't a massive blow-up performance, this kind of output is what fantasy managers have been clamoring for from McLaurin. With quarterback Carson Wentz on IR, Taylor Heinicke was able to breathe new life into this previously dormant wide receiver room. Although Heinicke wasn't the most impressive, he still targeted the former Buckeye like a top receiver, something that hasn't been seen for the majority of this season. McLaurin will attempt to carry the momentum from this impressive performance over into Week 8's matchup against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Terry McLaurin Could See Increased Usage With Quarterback Change

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin could be in line for some increased usage in Week 7. With Carson Wentz out for the next four-to-six weeks, Taylor Heinicke will be taking over as starting quarterback. The former Buckeye has been struggling to see strong usage with Wentz this season, as his target rate is down 10 percent from a year ago. Now, with Heinicke returning to the starting role, there is a chance that the 27-year-old has at least some increase in targets. With his former quarterback returning, McLaurin should be seen as a mid-level WR2 with the possibility to see further opportunities.

  • Terry McLaurin Leads Commanders In Receiving

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught three out of four targets for 41 yards while also tacking on two carries for 11 yards in Thursday's win over the Chicago Bears. McLaurin, along with the rest of the Commanders' receivers, disappointed in the box score as there were only 99 yards from Carson Wentz to split among one another. Despite his mediocre statistics, it was encouraging to see the Commanders finally manufacture touches for the 27-year-old through end-arounds and screens. Unfortunately, he still only had six total opportunities. If fantasy managers want to see more out of McLaurin, Washington is going to have to start utilizing him like the WR1 he profiles as in this offense. We'll see if anything changes in Week 7, but for now, he's still a WR2 in fantasy.

  • Terry McLaurin A WR2 In Week 6

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin should continue his run of WR2 production during Week 6 on Thursday Night Football. The 27-year-old is listed as the top receiver in this offense, but his usage and production have been disappointing considering preseason expectations. Through five weeks, he's averaging 3.8 receptions and 65.2 receiving yards per game, with only one touchdown on the year. Hopefully, the fourth-year pro is utilized like a WR1 soon and a matchup with the lowly Chicago Bears might be just what he needs. Start McLaurin as a WR2 in Week 6, but don't set your expectations too high for a sudden change.

  • Terry McLaurin Secures Five Catches In Week 5

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught five-of-six targets for 76 yards in Sunday's loss to the Tennessee Titans. The former Buckeye has been productive this season, but once again, he should be doing more. McLaurin hasn't caught a touchdown since Week 1, and it feels like Carson Wentz should be targeting him more on a weekly basis. Until the 27-year-old sees more targets in this pass-heavy offense, he will continue to be just a WR2 for fantasy managers. We'll see if he can shake up this usage pattern against the Chicago Bears in Week 6.

  • Terry McLaurin Facing Opportunistic Matchup In Week 5

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin, along with the rest of the team, had a disappointing outing last week. Going up against a tough Dallas Cowboys defense, the 27-year-old was locked down as he finished with only two receptions for 15 yards. This week against the Tennessee Titans, he'll probably see some improvement. The Titans possess one of the worst pass defenses in the league, and they've allowed the fourth-most average fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. Also, the Commanders' two other top receivers, Curtis Samuel and Jahan Dotson, are both considered questionable for this matchup. If there were any game for the fourth-year receiver to provide a boom performance, this might be the one. Start McLaurin as a solid WR2 in Week 5.

  • Terry McLaurin Locked Down In Week 4

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin had two catches on six targets for 15 yards in Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The 27-year-old came into this matchup after posting his highest yardage total of the season in Week 3. Instead of carrying that momentum over, he was unfortunately matched up with stud cornerback Trevon Diggs for most of the game. On 17 routes against Diggs, McLaurin caught one of his four targets for just five yards. This game was a dud for the entire Commanders offense, but it was particularly disappointing for the fourth-year receiver who was expected to put up WR2 numbers. McLaurin will now prepare for a Week 5 matchup against a Tennessee Titans defense that has been burned by top wideouts before.

  • Terry McLaurin Facing Tough Matchup In Week 4

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin is taking on a tough matchup for the second straight week. The Commanders are taking on the Dallas Cowboys, a team that ranks in the top-10 in fantasy points allowed to wide receivers. The 27-year-old has been fine for fantasy so far, but he seems to slightly underperform every week. Fantasy managers are hoping for a true breakout performance from the fourth-year receiver, but taking on the Cowboys' secondary is no easy feat. McLaurin should be started as a WR2, but managers should temper their expectations.

  • Terry McLaurin Makes Up For Awful First Half In Garbage Time

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught six out of nine targets for 102 yards in Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Along with the rest of the Commanders, the fourth-year receiver struggled mightily in the first half as he failed to catch his only target. In what was shaping up to be a terrible performance for the former Buckeye, garbage time came to the rescue. During late-game stat padding by the entire Commanders offense, McLaurin was able to create his highest receiving yardage total of the season. The Commanders will be taking on the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4 for their second straight divisional matchup. Against a team that isn't as threatening as the Eagles, McLaurin should be a solid WR2 for fantasy managers.

  • Terry McLaurin In Line For Disappointing Performance?

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin has been a decent option for lineups so far this season. During his first two weeks, the 27-year-old has put up 133 yards and a touchdown while lacking in the receptions department with only six. When looking at his stats, it's easy to come to the conclusion that McLaurin is being used heavily as a deep threat while Curtis Samuel takes a lot of the underneath routes. This utilization should have managers concerned for Week 3 as the Philadelphia Eagles have a particularly strong secondary headlined by Darius Slay and James Bradberry. You aren't benching McLaurin, but this matchup against Philadelphia should have fantasy managers wary of a possible dud performance.

  • Terry McLaurin Sees Eight Targets In Loss

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught four out of eight targets for 78 yards in Sunday's loss to the Detroit Lions. The fourth-year receiver had himself a decent performance in Week 2, but it took him, and the rest of the Commanders, an entire half to get anything rolling on offense. If Washington had offered anything resembling a well-functioning offense in the first two quarters, then McLaurin could've had a more impressive day. Through the first two weeks, the former Buckeye has been fine for fantasy, but there's always a feeling of wanting more. Maybe he starts to have better splash performances down the line, but as of now, McLaurin is looking mostly like a solid WR2 for lineups.
