Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin turned 11 targets into just four catches for 50 yards during Thursday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Despite the heavy volume, Washington's No. 1 receiver had a relatively uneventful game, delivering single-digit fantasy points (PPR) for the third consecutive week. On a positive note, the opportunities existed between his hefty target share and Sam Howell's 300 passing yards. Perhaps McLaurin can bounce back as a low-end WR2 versus the Miami Dolphins in Week 13.

While putting up disappointing numbers for the past two weeks, Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin has the tall task of taking on one of the best defenses in the NFL. In a Week 12 Thanksgiving matchup, the Commanders will face the Dallas Cowboys. Dallas is allowing the second-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers, making this a questionable matchup for McLaurin. So, while the fifth-year receiver may be aiming to bounce back, this will be a tough game to do so. McLaurin is still a starting option, but just temper expectations. Consider him a low-end WR2 against Dallas.

Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught five-of-seven targets for 43 yards during Sunday's loss to the New York Giants. It was another lackluster outing for the fifth-year receiver as he failed to reach 50 receiving yards for the second straight week. This seemed like a stellar matchup for McLaurin as the Giants have given up some strong outings to wide receivers recently. Unfortunately, things just weren't aligning with the offense struggling as a whole. With a matchup against the menacing Dallas Cowboys defense on schedule for Week 12, McLaurin will have to bring his best if he wants to break out of this slump.

After a disappointing performance against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10, Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin is drawing a much easier matchup in Week 11. Washington has the privilege of facing the New York Giants, probably the most depleted team in the NFL at this point of the season. In terms of fantasy points allowed per game, the Giants are giving up the fourth most to wide receivers while coming off a game where they allowed Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb to go nuclear. McLaurin probably won't hit Lamb's level of production, but there is the possibility for a major bounce back against an inferior opponent. Consider him a strong WR2 with upside in Week 11.
Nov 17, 2023 6:22 PM EST
Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught four-of-eight targets for 33 yards during Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Despite looking like a solid play coming into Week 10, the fifth-year receiver ended up disappointing against Seattle. Although he led Washington in targets, McLaurin had the misfortune of dealing with the Seahawks' talented cornerbacks all game. There is light at the end of the tunnel, however, as the Commanders get to play the New York Giants in Week 11. Considering the Giants' defense just allowed 640 total yards to the Dallas Cowboys, McLaurin may be in a good spot for a bounce back next week.
Nov 12, 2023 10:25 PM EST
Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin should once again be a solid fantasy option. While lacking a true boom performance, the fifth-year receiver has been a model of consistency as he's hit at least five receptions for 50 yards in six of nine games. In Week 10, the Commanders will take on the Seattle Seahawks. Both teams own a solid offense and a weaker defense. With that combination, there is the possibility of a shootout in this game. Considering Washington's offense has leaned heavily on the pass as of late, that may mean plenty of targets heading McLaurin's way. With a solid matchup in a pass-heavy offense, McLaurin is looking like a high-end WR2 in Week 10.
Nov 10, 2023 5:21 PM EST
Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught five-of-seven targets for 73 yards during Sunday's win over the New England Patriots. Despite not being able to find the end zone, McLaurin still put together a solid outing as he led the Commanders in receiving yards. As quarterback Sam Howell continues to put up great performances on the back of numerous pass attempts, the veteran receivers' level of play should continue to impress. With an upcoming matchup against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10, McLaurin should once again be a solid starting option.
Nov 5, 2023 6:11 PM EST
Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin should be in for a solid performance this week. In Week 9, the Commanders are taking on the New England Patriots, and it looks like the veteran receiver may once again be a focal point of the offense. In Week 8, he saw a team-leading 12 targets while fellow receiver Curtis Samuel (toe) was hampered by an injury. Samuel has recently been ruled out for Week 9, making McLaurin a candidate for plenty of targets once again. Considering the health of his teammate and a solid matchup against New England's hobbled defense, McLaurin should be started as a high-end WR2 this week.
Nov 3, 2023 6:02 PM EST
Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught five-of-12 targets for 63 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. With the Commanders operating under a pass-heavy game plan, the veteran receiver put together a decent game for himself. However, while leading the team in targets, McLaurin was unable to haul in seven of them. On the positive side, though, his 26-yard touchdown in the first quarter provided a solid cushion for his overall output. With the New England Patriots on deck for the Commanders in Week 9, McLaurin will aim to once again garner a heavy target share.
Oct 29, 2023 5:57 PM EST
Coming off of a strong game against the New York Giants in Week 7, Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin could continue his success in Week 8 against the Philadelphia Eagles. In Washington's previous matchup with the Eagles in Week 4, the veteran receiver had eight receptions for 86 yards along with a fumble recovery touchdown. Considering the Eagles can put up points in a hurry, the Commanders may have to lean on the passing game, making McLaurin a candidate for a repeat performance. With his earlier success against Philadelphia and the likely heavy pass volume taken into account, McLaurin should be seen as a mid-range WR2 in Week 8.
Oct 27, 2023 4:59 PM EST
Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught six-of-nine targets for 90 yards in Sunday's loss to the New York Giants. A performance that appeared dreadful for the veteran receiver quickly turned around late in the third quarter. With the Commanders attempting a comeback, he got the offense rolling with two ridiculous catches for 58 total yards. While his day was solid, it's even more impressive when you realize he racked up all 90 of his receiving yards in the second half alone. McLaurin will aim to carry his strong performance over into Week 8 as the Commanders look for a win against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Oct 22, 2023 5:40 PM EST
Coming off an outing where he led the Washington Commanders in every receiving stat, wide receiver Terry McLaurin could have another strong performance this week. In Week 7, the Commanders are taking on the New York Giants. This season, the Giants have allowed the 10th most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. The veteran receiver was already a starter for most rosters, but that stat should make him a lineup lock. Considering the advantageous matchup and McLaurin's role as Washington's lead receiver, he's a solid WR2 in Week 7.
Oct 20, 2023 4:30 PM EST
Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught six-of-11 targets for 81 yards during Sunday's win over the Atlanta Falcons. After a confusing game in Week 5 where he was more of an afterthought, McLaurin was the focal point of Washington's offense in Week 6. The veteran receiver had himself a strong outing while leading the Commanders in targets, receptions, and receiving yards. For their upcoming matchup, Washington will take on the New York Giants in Week 7. Considering New York's defensive struggles this season, McLaurin will have a chance to continue his success into next week.
Oct 15, 2023 5:52 PM EST
After a disappointing outing against the Chicago Bears in Week 5, Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin will aim to rebound in Week 6. This week, the Commanders are taking on the Atlanta Falcons, a team with a strong pass defense. Last week was an odd game all around for the Commanders, so McLaurin should see more work than he did against Chicago. However, assuming he's lined up across from Atlanta's top cornerback A.J. Terrell for most of the game, he may have his hands full. Terrell has been one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL this season, and a reason for the Falcons' defensive success against the pass. McLaurin will likely see more valuable targets, but the matchup makes him a low-end WR2 in Week 6.
Oct 13, 2023 6:07 PM EST
Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught four-of-five targets for 49 yards in Thursday's loss to the Chicago Bears. After a strong outing in Week 4, it was surprising to see little from the veteran receiver considering quarterback Sam Howell finished his day with 51 pass attempts. McLaurin drew a long pass interference penalty that eventually set up Washington's first touchdown of the game, but he wasn't looked at much until the game was already lost. This was a strange outing for the Commanders, and hopefully, McLaurin can see more involvement against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.
Oct 6, 2023 12:21 AM EST
Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin had a strong outing in Week 4, and he could have another in Week 5. Washington is facing the Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football, a team that ranks bottom-five against the pass. While he's been splitting more targets with his teammates than what was expected, McLaurin is still the target and reception leader in this offense. If quarterback Sam Howell can keep targeting the veteran receiver at a decent clip, he should be a solid contributor for fantasy rosters. He's a high-end WR2 during this advantageous matchup.
Oct 4, 2023 3:23 PM EST
Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught eight-of-10 targets for 86 yards along with a fumble recovery touchdown in Sunday's overtime loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. After a few middling outings to start the season, the veteran receiver had his best performance in Week 4. While his receiving statistics would've made for a strong outing, his day was made better due to a Brian Robinson Jr. fumble that McLaurin picked up in the Eagles' end zone for a touchdown. McLaurin was able to pad his stats with this unorthodox score, but hopefully, he can pick up one that is meant for him against the Chicago Bears in Week 5.
Oct 1, 2023 6:09 PM EST
Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin is hoping to break out after an okay performance in Week 3. The Commanders are heading on the road to take on the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4. The Eagles are heavy favorites as Washington is listed as an 8.5-point underdog. With that in mind, there should be many pass attempts to go around as the Commanders are projected to be in a negative game script. So, while the pass attempts from quarterback Sam Howell might not be the highest quality, the sheer volume needed to keep up with the Eagles might work in McLaurin's favor. Consider him a low-end WR2 in Week 4.
Sep 28, 2023 4:58 PM EST
Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught all six of his targets for 41 yards in Sunday's loss to the Buffalo Bills. In a dreadful outing for the Commanders, McLaurin acted as Sam Howell's security blanket. While leading Washington wideouts with six targets, he appeared to be the only one with at least some actual success. The final score leaves much to be desired for Washington, but there appears to be a solid connection building between their second-year quarterback and their veteran receiver. Hopefully, McLaurin can build upon this outing in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Sep 24, 2023 5:35 PM EST
Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin is coming off a nice outing in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos. Now in Week 3, the Commanders are taking on the Buffalo Bills at home. The Bills are a tough matchup, but it could be made even more challenging due to the incoming weather. According to reports, the D.C. area will likely be hit by heavy rain and wind gusts this coming Sunday. With that in mind, McLaurin may be a very risky play due to the weather severely impacting a team's ability to pass the ball. However, if the weather remains calm, he should be considered a low-end WR2. Monitor the weather reports before trusting him in Week 3.
