Player Outlook
We're viewing McLaurin as a No. 3 wide receiver in Fantasy Football the season and we're comfortable drafting him at the end of Round 5 in a PPR league. It feels like we've never seen the best of McLaurin due to mediocre quarterback play and there is legitimate reason to hope that Jayden Daniels changes that. On the other hand, Daniels is a rookie quarterback with exceptional running ability, so we should probably anticipate a pretty severe decrease in passing volume for Washington this season. McLaurin could make up for that loss in volume by improving on his minuscule 3.5% touchdown rate over the past four seasons, but it's hard to see how McLaurin can take a big leap this year. In Dynasty there is slightly more hope that a Daniels/McLaurin marriage could produce long-term elite production, but McLaurin turns 29 in September so it's probably time to stop talking about what he could be.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Fourth straight 1,000-yard season

    McLaurin caught six of eight targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Cowboys. It took until the fourth quarter, but McLaurin hauled in just enough production to reach 1,000 yards for the fourth straight season with 1,002. His 79 catches on the year also put him over 75 for the fourth straight campaign, a remarkable streak of consistency considering the revolving door the Commanders have had at quarterback during his career. McLaurin will likely be working with yet another new signal-caller, and a new coaching staff, in 2024, but this might be the one that sticks as Washington holds the second overall pick in a QB-rich draft class.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: WRs to Sit

    McLaurin scored 16.1 PPR points in Week 17 against San Francisco with four catches for 61 yards and a touchdown on six targets, and it was his best production from Sam Howell since Week 9. We'll see if Howell and McLaurin can have another quality outing in Week 18 against Dallas, but they didn't fare well together in the first game against the Cowboys when McLaurin had four catches for 50 yards on 11 targets. In his past four games against Dallas, McLaurin has just 12 catches for 179 yards and a touchdown, and he's scored nine PPR points or fewer in three of those games. I would only start McLaurin in three-receiver leagues in Week 18.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Bright spot in Washington offense

    McLaurin recorded four catches on six targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-10 loss to the 49ers. McLaurin was one of the few bright spots in the Washington offense, though his production came primarily on two plays on the same drive. He first caught a deep pass down the right sideline for 42 yards, and five plays later, he boxed out a 49ers defender to record a three-yard touchdown catch. McLaurin now has two scores in his last three games after recording only two touchdowns in the first 13 contests of the campaign.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: WRs to Start

    Let's go back to the Rams game in Week 15 when Jacoby Brissett took over for Sam Howell in the fourth quarter. In two drives, Brissett connected with McLaurin on three passes for 93 yards and a touchdown, including a 48-yard reception that ended up on the 1-yard line. To put that in perspective, McLaurin's best game with Sam Howell this season was 90 yards in Week 7 against the Giants. Brissett is starting for the Commanders in Week 17 against the 49ers, who have allowed five receivers to score at least 13.2 PPR points in their past four games, including four touchdowns over that span. I like McLaurin as a No. 2 Fantasy receiver in all leagues with Brissett.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Leading receiver in Week 16 loss

    McLaurin caught three of five targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 30-28 loss to the Jets. For the second straight week, McLaurin did little until Sam Howell was replaced at quarterback by Jacoby Brissett, and the wideout gained most of his team-leading yardage on a 29-yard pass from Brissett in the fourth quarter that helped set up a Chris Rodriguez TD. The Commanders' passing attack has looked better under Brissett than Howell in back-to-back games, and McLaurin's fantasy prospects would be brighter if coach Ron Rivera made the switch permanent ahead of a Week 17 clash with the 49ers.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Bust Alert (Start/Sit)

    I thought McLaurin would play well in Week 15 at the Rams, and he delivered his best game of the season with 26.1 PPR points on six catches for 141 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets. That snapped a streak of four games in a row where McLaurin scored 9.3 PPR points or less, and I'm concerned he could revert to that type of stat line in Week 16 at the Jets, who are No. 1 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers. Only four receivers have scored touchdowns against the Jets this season, and Sam Howell is clearly struggling after he was benched last week against the Rams (McLaurin's touchdown also came from Jacoby Brissett). McLaurin is only worth starting in three-receiver leagues in Week 16.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: First 100-yard game of season

    McLaurin recorded six receptions on 12 targets for 141 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 28-20 loss to the Rams. McLaurin entered Sunday's matchup in particularly bad form, as he had failed to top 50 receiving yards in four consecutive games. He turned that around, however, as he managed his first 100-yard receiving game of the season and also found the end zone for the first time since Week 8. His touchdown came midway through the fourth quarter from backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett, and McLaurin narrowly missed a second score on a 48-yard reception on the next offensive possession. While it was a very positive performance for McLaurin, he could have a hard time following it up in a Week 16 matchup against the typically tough Jets secondary.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Sleeper WRs

    McLaurin will hopefully get a squeaky wheel game in Week 15 at the Rams after what happened to him in Week 13 against Miami. Against the Dolphins, McLaurin had three targets and no catches, and following the game he said, "I ran a lot of cardio." He's also scored fewer than 10 PPR points in four games in a row, and he hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 8. I would only start McLaurin in three-receiver leagues, along with Curtis Samuel, who has 13 catches for 165 yards on 17 targets in his past two games. But this is a good matchup since the Rams have allowed six receivers to score at least 11.7 PPR points in their past four games.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Held off stat sheet Sunday

    McLaurin failed to bring in any of his three targets in the Commanders' 45-15 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. McLaurin was kept off the stat sheet for the only the second time in his career, the first instance having come back in Week 14 of the 2021 season against the Cowboys. The veteran's target tally was also a season low, although it bears mentioning that Washington's air attack had a very underwhelming day as a whole with Sam Howell putting up just 23 pass attempts. McLaurin should be set to return a customary level of production following the Week 14 bye in a Week 15 road matchup against the Rams that should feature a much more conventional game script.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Does little with big volume

    McLaurin caught four of 11 targets for 50 yards in Thursday's 45-10 loss to the Cowboys. The fourth-year wideout was second on the Commanders in targets behind Curtis Samuel's 12, but McLaurin faced tight coverage all day and couldn't do much with the volume. He nearly had a touchdown on a deep route early in the third quarter when the outcome of the game was still in doubt, but Stephon Gilmore was with him step for step and broke it up. McLaurin has still caught at least four passes in 11 straight games to maintain a steady floor in PPR formats, but he's gone three straight games without topping 50 yards and four straight without getting into the end zone. He'll likely need to come up big in Week 13 if the Commanders are going to keep pace with Tyreek Hill and the Dolphins.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Minimal production on seven targets

    McLaurin recorded five receptions on seven targets for 43 yards in Sunday's 31-19 loss to the Giants. McLaurin finished third on the team on targets, as Sam Howell favored short-area options such as Logan Thomas and Brian Robinson. His longest catch of the day went for only 11 yards, and McLaurin now has only 76 yards on nine receptions combined across his last two games. That's continued a disappointing campaign, as he has topped 80 yards only three times to go along with two total touchdowns.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: WRs to Start

    We like trends, and No. 1 receivers have beat up the Giants for most of the season. Aside from CeeDee Lamb in Week 1 and Davante Adams in Week 9, the No. 1 receiver against the Giants -- Marquise Brown in Week 2, Deebo Samuel in Week 3, DK Metcalf in Week 4, Tyreek Hill in Week 5, Stefon Diggs in Week 6, McLaurin in Week 7, Garrett Wilson in Week 8 and Lamb in Week 10 -- has either caught a touchdown or gained at least 90 yards. Seven of those receivers have scored at least 15 PPR points, including McLaurin, who had six catches for 90 yards on nine targets in Week 7. McLaurin has scored at least 13 PPR points in five games in a row against the Giants as well.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Held to 33 yards on eight targets

    McLaurin caught four of eight targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 29-26 loss to the Seahawks. McLaurin finished with his worst fantasy output since Week 1 when he had two catches for 31 yards against the Cardinals. The veteran starter averaged 5.6 receptions and 67.1 yards in the eight games bookended by his two sub 40-yard duds, numbers good enough to warrant a lineup spot in most fantasy formats. McLaurin's total production through 10 weeks sits at 51-601-2, putting him on pace for his fourth consecutive 1,000-yard receiving season. His next attempt to add to that total comes against the Giants next Sunday.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Gets into end zone in loss

    McLaurin brought in five of 12 targets for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Commanders' 38-31 loss to the Eagles on Sunday. The normally reliable receiver was far from his most efficient and was uncharacteristically guilty of a couple of late drops, but McLaurin still delivered a solid fantasy day thanks in large part to his 26-yard touchdown grab to open the scoring. The score was only McLaurin's second of the season and first since Week 2, but his target tally was a new high-water mark in 2023 and his third of the double-digit variety this season. McLaurin next takes aim at a vulnerable Patriots secondary in a Week 9 road interconference matchup.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Start Him (Lineup Decisions)

    I have a gut feeling the Commanders are going to play the Eagles to the wire. Maybe that's because that's what they usually do -- they've lost one game to Philadelphia by more than 10 points in their past nine meetings, all with McLaurin. His track record has to be considered here, but it's the Eagles defense that comes up big from game to game, but not without letting up a lot of receptions along the way. Count on McLaurin as a reliable WR2 over Jaylen Warren, Tee Higgins and Drake London.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: WRS to Start

    McLaurin loves facing the Giants. In his past five meetings with the Giants, McLaurin has scored at least 13.0 PPR points in each outing, including four games with at least six catches, three games with at least 105 receiving yards and three games with a touchdown. Let's hope that history continues in Week 7, and McLaurin is coming off a solid game at Atlanta in Week 6 with six catches for 81 yards on 11 targets. He's now scored at least 14.1 PPR points in three of his past five games -- all on the road -- and I like McLaurin as a No. 2 Fantasy receiver in all leagues. I also like Curtis Samuel as a sleeper in Week 7, and he has scored at least 14.2 PPR points in three games in a row. The Giants have allowed seven receivers to score at least 11.7 PPR points this season.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Paces pass catchers in Week 6 win

    McLaurin brought in six of 11 targets for 81 yards in the Commanders' 24-16 win over the Falcons on Sunday. McLaurin set the pace in all major receiving categories for the Commanders for the afternoon, with his reception and yardage totals serving as his second highest of the season and his target tally a new high-water mark over his first six games. The veteran wideout's overall fantasy ceiling is likely being capped to an extent by any limitations being placed on Sam Howell as he traverses his first full season as a starter, but McLaurin will still take a solid 31-342-1 line into a Week 7 road divisional matchup versus the Giants.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: WRs to Sit

    McLaurin is worth using in three-receiver leagues in Week 6, but I wouldn't expect a big game against Atlanta. He has now scored just one touchdown this year, and he's been held to 10.1 PPR points or less in three of five games. He also has six targets or less in four outings this season, and this is a tough matchup against the Falcons, who are No. 5 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers. So far this season, Atlanta has limited No. 1 receivers in Adam Thielen, Romeo Doubs, Calvin Ridley and Nico Collins to an average of 6.7 PPR points per game. Amon-Ra St. Brown in Week 3 (19.6 PPR points) is the lone No. 1 receiver to do well against the Falcons, and McLaurin should have another minimal stat line in this matchup.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Sit Him (Lineup Decisions)

    The only two games McLaurin posted good numbers in were Washington's 35-33 win over Denver in Week 2 and Washington's 34-31 OT loss to Philadelphia in Week 4. This matchup has an over/under of 42.5 points, tied for fourth-lowest of the week. Tack on the ascending secondary the Falcons seem to have and the Commanders' diffusion of targets and McLaurin is at best a low-end flex. I'd rather roll the dice on Drake London, Tyler Lockett or Garrett Wilson.
