Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin caught 11 passes for 107 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the New York Giants. McLaurin was targeted a game-high 14 times.
Huddle Up: There's no doubt who's at the top of the food chain in Washington's receiver room as McLaurin got almost twice as many targets as anyone else Thursday night. That there was no drop off with the switch to Taylor Heinicke is a great sign and further solidifies McLaurin as a solid WR2.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin posted four grabs for 62 yards on four targets in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: McLaurin is a solid low-end WR1 in most fantasy leagues, but he lost starting QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to a hip injury early, and QB Taylor Heinicke finished up. Expect Heinicke to go Thursday in Week 2 against the New York Giants with the quick turnaround. That might bump McLaurin's fantasy appeal down a bit.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin said he worked with retired WR Doug Baldwin this offseason to improve his release against physical corners.
Huddle Up: McLaurin has produced solid numbers in each of his first two seasons despite dealing with a quarterback carousel, but it is encouraging to hear that he is still looking to improve. He has earned the benefit of the doubt as a WR2 no matter who spend the most time under center in Washington.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin is talking up the chemistry he gained with new QB Ryan Fitzpatrick during the two weeks of OTA workouts. 'He (Fitzpatrick) puts an emphasis on really being in communication with the receivers,' McLaurin said. That's not just me. I've seen him communicate with just about every receiver on the roster right now, just about what they're thinking with this route, what they're thinking about with this leverage. I think that is very important to do at this part in the season because you want to try to start making that connection early.'
Huddle Up: McLaurin is entering his third season having already caught passes from six different WFT quarterbacks. He reeled in 87 of 134 targets last season for 1,118 yards and four TDs, and if the chemistry with the seasoned Fitzpatrick results in at least more TD grabs this season, McLaurin could challenge for WR1 fantasy status.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin was targeted 83 more times than any other receiver on the team in 2020.
Huddle Up: McLaurin has delivered two strong seasons despite lackluster quarterback play, and while the situation under center probably won't be better in 2021, he has proven he can deliver WR2 production regardless.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin said he dealt with two high ankle sprains during the 2020 NFL season.
Huddle Up: McLaurin still played in 15 regular season games despite the injuries and finished with 1,118 yards and four touchdowns. He likely will be working with a new quarterback next season but will still be the main option in the passing game. He can be at least a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin is 'one of the better up-and-coming wideouts' in the NFL, according to San Francisco 49ers CB Richard Sherman, and Sherman believes McLaurin is being held back by Washington's lack of weapons. 'If he had anybody else beside him and they couldn't just double him and cloud him all the time he'd be special,' Sherman said.
Huddle Up: McLaurin has amassed more than 2,000 receiving yards in his first two seasons despite being the only consistent weapon for a carousel of quarterbacks. He is no worse than a high-floor WR3, and his ceiling will only go up if Washington can make some upgrades on offense.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin has recorded 2,037 receiving yards since entering the league, becoming the 21st player since 2000 to top 2,000 yards in their first two seasons.
Huddle Up: After hauling in 58 catches for 919 yards as a rookie, McLaurin logged 87 receptions for 1,118 yards in 2020. McLaurin has already shown he is no worse than a WR3, and if Washington can improve its quarterback situation, his ceiling will jump significantly.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin (ankle) is officially active for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: McLaurin should be one of the main targets in the passing game, but his fantasy value will take a hit with Taylor Heinicke as the starting quarterback. He could be a starting option in some leagues but is not a must-start option.

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 7, and is listed as questionable for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: McLaurin should be ready to play in the playoff game, but fantasy players can check the inactive list for his official status. He should be one of the top options in the passing game for Washington and can be a starting option in most fantasy leagues.
