Player Outlook
McLaurin is a high-end No. 2 wide receiver who should be drafted no sooner than the end of Round 3 in full PPR leagues. McLaurin has top-12 potential if he gels with Carson Wentz and is able to post even a normal touchdown rate. McLaurin showed elite efficiency in Year 1 and averaged 8.9 targets per game in Year 2,.so anything resembling a combination of those two seasons would put McLaurin in the discussion for top five. There is some risk that first-round pick Jahan Dotson takes some of McLaurin's target share and McLaurin's efficiency continues to decline. In that case, he'd be more of a No. 3 receiver and a bust before Round 5.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Tallies 16-yard reception

    McLaurin recorded one catch on two targets for 16 yards in Saturday's 23-21 preseason loss to the Panthers. The Commanders' offense sputtered on its first two possessions, but McLaurin began the third drive with a 16-yard catch on a pass delivered by Carson Wentz. McLaurin is coming off a relatively disappointing 2021 season, but an upgrade at quarterback provides some optimism that he will be able to return to his 2020 form, when he tallied 87 receptions for 1,118 yards across 15 games.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Lands three-year extension

    McLaurin agreed Tuesday on a three-year contract extension with the Commanders, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The deal includes up to $71 million in new money and a $28 million signing bonus, with Washington's investment placing McLaurin among the NFL's top-five highest-paid wideouts. As a result, the 26-year-old -- whose rookie contract had been slated to expire after the coming season -- is now signed with the team through the 2025 campaign. Through 17 games in 2021, the 2019 third-rounder logged a 77-1,053-5 stat line on 130 targets. He continues to profile as the top option in a wide receiver corps that also includes Curtis Samuel and 2022 first-rounder Jahan Dotson, with McLaurin's fantasy prospects potentially boosted by new QB Carson Wentz.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Coach says no trade happening

    Commands head coach Ron Rivera said Wednesday that McLaurin isn't a trade candidate heading into the season, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. McLaurin is skipping mandatory minicamp while he and the Commanders continue to discuss a new extension. Per Ben Standig of The Athletic, Rivera also confirmed that McLaurin will be fined for missing mandatory team activities, but that ongoing negotiations are "not contentious." Of course, it's not uncommon in the NFL for team officials to commit to retaining a player only for a trade to later occur, as happened with A.J. Brown and Titans coach Mike Vrabel earlier this offseason. As a result of being dealt to the Eagles, Brown was able to secure a four-year, $100 million contract, and McLaurin may be vying for a similar payday as he enters the final season of his rookie contract.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Plans to skip minicamp

    McLaurin doesn't intend to report to the Commanders' mandatory minicamp this week, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. According to Pete Hailey of NBC Sports Washington, head coach Ron Rivera said less than a week earlier that he expected McLaurin to be in attendance for minicamp, but the wide receiver instead plans to remain a spectator while he seeks a long-term contract extension. The 26-year-old, who is looking for a deal on par with the four-year, $100 million pact A.J. Brown recently reached with the Eagles, is entering the final year of his rookie deal in 2022 and will miss out on opportunities to take reps alongside new starting quarterback Carson Wentz while he remains off the field.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Expected for mandatory minicamp

    Washington head coach Ron Rivera said Wednesday he expects McLaurin to participate in next week's mandatory minicamp, Pete Hailey of NBC Sports Washington reports. McLaurin has remained away from voluntary OTAs while attempting to negotiate a new contract with the Commanders. The 2019 third-round pick is entering the final year of his rookie contract, and he's once again facing the task of establishing chemistry with a new quarterback, this time former Eagles and Colts signal-caller Carson Wentz. Thus far in his career, McLaurin has averaged 74 catches for 1,030 yards and 5.3 touchdowns per season. In McLaurin's absence, rookie first-round pick Jahan Dotson has reportedly made strides in establishing a rapport with Wentz.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Not at OTAs but could sign soon

    McLaurin hasn't been participating in offseason activities, but Commanders coach Ron Rivera said Tuesday it's "just a matter of time" before the wideout is back with the team, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. McLaurin was at the team facility at one point in April, with reports suggesting he wouldn't do on-field work until he'd signed a new contract. His absence since then might be interpreted as either a show of frustration or a negotiating tactic, but it's also possible the wideout is simply being cautious with a huge payday on the horizon. McLaurin is entering the fourth and final season of his rookie deal and should command at least $20 million per year on a long-term extension. Assuming he and the Commanders work things out, McLaurin could still have to deal with subpar QB play again, this time catching passes from former Eagles and Colts QB Carson Wentz.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Contract talks ongoing

    Washington general manager Martin Mayhew said Monday that the organization is in ongoing talks with McLaurin and his agent about a possible contract extension, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. McLaurin currently is with the team, but he isn't participating in any voluntary on-field workouts this offseason. Mandatory minicamp doesn't start until mid-June, so the two sides have some time to figure out a deal, but it's possible the wideout could continue to hold out until an extension is signed. The acquisition of Carson Wentz -- who's owed $28 million in 2022 -- has hindered Washington's moves and likely has been at least part of the reason McLaurin hasn't signed an extension yet. Regardless, Mayhew said, "We're really excited about the opportunity of having Terry continue with us for a long time," so it appears there are no intentions of trading the fourth-year wideout ahead of the draft. Commanders head coach Ron Rivera added that the team's draft process won't be impacted by McLaurin's ongoing situation.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Joining team but won't practice

    McLaurin isn't expected to participate in on-field work this offseason, but he will be at the Commanders' team facility Tuesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. At this point in mid-April, workouts are voluntary and don't include much on-field work, if any. The bigger question will come later this spring when the team has mandatory minicamp (June 14-16) a week after the conclusion of OTAs. McLaurin will take part if he signs an extension before then, while he could opt to hold out if contract discussions are ongoing or stalled. The 2019 third-round pick is entering the fourth and final year of his rookie contract, averaging 74 catches for 1,030 yards and 5.3 TDs per season so far. McLaurin will work with a new QB again in 2022, with the Commanders trading for Carson Wentz and likely dropping Taylor Heinicke back to the second spot on their depth chart.

  • Football Team's Terry McLaurin: Closes out season strong

    McLaurin brought in four of six targets for 93 yards in Washington's 22-7 win over the Giants on Sunday. The speedster easily paced Washington in receptions, receiving yards and targets to finish off the season with a second straight impressive performance. McLaurin generated an 11-154 line over the last two contests, and Sunday's production vaulted him over the 1,000-yard mark (1,053) for the second consecutive season. There's no questioning McLaurin's game-breaking ability, with the spotty quarterback play he's endured thus far in his first three seasons being the only factor seemingly putting a cap on him elevating to the elite tier of receivers in both a football and fantasy sense.

  • Football Team's Terry McLaurin: Volume returns

    McLaurin recorded seven receptions on eight targets for 61 yards in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Eagles. McLaurin earned at least eight targets for the first time since Week 10 and topped five targets for only the second time in his last five games. He didn't turn that into an elite level of production, though he did manage a pair of catches that went for double-digit gains. Despite having a season to forget due to Washington's poor quarterback play, McLaurin needs only 40 yards in a Week 18 matchup against the Giants to reach 1,000 for the campaign.

  • Football Team's Terry McLaurin: Held to 40 yards in loss

    McLaurin caught three of six targets for 40 yards in Sunday's 56-14 loss to Dallas. McLaurin -- like many Washington position players -- fell victim to the one-sided affair. The 26-year-old was tied for the team lead in targets, signaling that he is still the top dog in the Football Team's wideout rotation. McLaurin's solid fantasy season has come to a screeching halt of late, as he has failed to top 51 yards or score a touchdown over the last five games. The talented receiver is clearly being limited by Washington's recent poor quarterback play, and there is no guarantee that his situation will improve ahead of next week's tilt against Philadelphia after this horrible overall performance by the offense.

  • Football Team's Terry McLaurin: Team-leading yardage in loss

    McLaurin brought in two of four targets for 51 yards in Washington's 27-17 loss to the Eagles on Tuesday night. McLaurin's receiving yardage tally, modest as it was, paced Washington on the night, although nearly all of it came on a 46-yard grab. The speedster's fantasy outlook was naturally dampened by the fact the Football Team was forced to go with Garrett Gilbert at quarterback in the absence of both Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen due to COVID-19 protocols. McLaurin's 51 yards also represent his high-water mark over the last four games, sending him into a Week 16 road matchup against the Cowboys in a near-month-long funk.

  • Football Team's Terry McLaurin: No injury designation

    McLaurin (concussion) doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Tuesday's game against the Eagles. McLaurin fully participated in each of Washington's three practice sessions this week, and he'll be able to suit up against the Eagles on Tuesday. The 2019 third-rounder has been held in check across the last three games, as he's hauled in seven of 15 targets for 73 yards during that time.

  • Football Team's Terry McLaurin: Practices fully again

    McLaurin was a full participant in practice Sunday for the second day in a row, but Washington has yet to officially reveal whether he cleared the five-step concussion protocol, Pete Hailey of NBC Sports Washington reports. McLaurin may still need to pass the final step of the protocol -- gaining clearance from an independent neurologist -- before Washington confirms he'll be ready to play Tuesday against the Eagles, after the game was pushed back from Sunday due to the Football Team's COVID-19 outbreak. The consecutive full practices are a promising sign McLaurin will be good to go for the Week 15 contest, but his availability won't be known until Washington releases its final injury report later Sunday. If McLaurin suits up, he may be drawing targets from backup quarterback Kyle Allen (illness), who is likelier bet than normal starter Taylor Heinicke (illness) to return from the reserve/COVID-19 list before Tuesday. If neither Heinicke nor Allen is cleared, however, Washington would turn to practice-squad member Kyle Shurmur or the newly signed Garrett Gilbert to make a spot start at quarterback.

  • Football Team's Terry McLaurin: Full practice Saturday

    McLaurin (concussion) practiced fully Saturday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports. After suffering a concussion last Sunday against the Cowboys, McLaurin didn't practice Wednesday and then logged back-to-back limited sessions Thursday and Friday. By bumping up to all activity Saturday, he's reached the final stage on his quest through the protocol for head injuries. With two days to receive clearance from an independent neurologist, McLaurin has a decent shot to suit up Tuesday versus the Eagles. Who may be throwing him passes is up in the air, though, with both Taylor Heinicke (illness) and Kyle Allen (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list. If neither player is activated, McLaurin likely will be operating with Garrett Gilbert.

  • Football Team's Terry McLaurin: Washington-Eagles moved to Tuesday

    McLaurin (concussion) and Washington will no longer play the Eagles on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET. Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within Washington's organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Football Team will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. Assuming the game is held Tuesday as expected, McLaurin should be in good shape to play after he made notable progress in his recovery from the concussion by practicing in a limited capacity Thursday and Friday. Per Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post, head coach Ron Rivera said Friday that he's very optimistic McLaurin will exit the five-step concussion protocol before Tuesday's game, with the wideout's availability ultimately hinging on him getting clearance from an independent neurologist. Even if McLaurin suits up Tuesday, he may have to work with an unfamiliar quarterback, as the top two options on the depth chart -- starter Taylor Heinicke and top backup Kyle Allen -- tested positive for COVID-19 over the past few days, leaving the availability of both signal-callers in flux for Week 15.

  • Football Team's Terry McLaurin: Expected to play

    Coach Ron Rivera said Friday that he has a "very high" level of optimism that McLaurin (concussion) will play in Sunday's game against the Eagles, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Postreports. J.D. McKissic (concussion), on the other hand, sounds truly questionable, while McLaurin apparently is on track to clear concussion protocol before Sunday's game. It'll be a less-than-ideal setup for receiving production, with Garrett Gilbert plucked off New England's practice squad for a potential Week 15 start after Washington QBs Taylor Heinicke and Garrett Gilbert were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

  • Football Team's Terry McLaurin: Bumps up to limited practice reps

    Washington listed McLaurin (concussion) as a limited participant in Thursday's practice, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. While the Washington roster continues to be ravaged by COVID-19-related absences, McLaurin's ability to upgrade from no participation in Wednesday's practice to limited activity Thursday qualifies as some rare good news. McLaurin will still need to receive clearance to take contact and will also need to get the green light from an independent neurologist in order to suit up Sunday in Philadelphia, but the wideout looks to be trending in a positive direction.

  • Football Team's Terry McLaurin: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    McLaurin (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. On a positive note, McLaurin worked on the side with team trainers just three days after entering the concussion protocol, according to JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington. McLaurin will have two more opportunities to mix into drills this week, which he'll have to do in at least a limited capacity Thursday or Friday to give himself a chance to play Sunday at Philadelphia.

  • Football Team's Terry McLaurin: Enters concussion protocol

    Coach Ron Rivera said Monday that McLaurin has entered the concussion protocol, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. McLaurin was forced out of Sunday's loss to the Cowboys after he sustained a concussion in the third quarter, and he'll have several steps to clear if he hopes to play against the Eagles on Sunday. If he isn't cleared to play, DeAndre Carter, Adam Humphries and Curtis Samuel should see additional work.
