Terry McLaurin Should Continue Solid Play In Week 5

Wednesday, October 4, 3:23 PM

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.

Rashod Bateman Misses Thursday's Practice

Thursday, September 28, 3:10 PM

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman (hamstring) missed his second consecutive practice on Thursday. The second-year wideout has been involved in the offense in a limited capacity, garnering just three targets in each of the first three games of the season that have added up to seven receptions and 59 yards. With rookie Zay Flowers the new focus of Baltimore's receiving corps and Mark Andrews' presence at tight end, Bateman's time in the sun seems to have already passed. The Ravens take on the division-rival Cleveland Browns in Week 4, but there is no reason to believe Bateman will be any more involved. He is safe to drop in most leagues.
