Terry McLaurin exploits Eagles secondary in Week 15

Washington’s star rookie wide receiver is amidst another explosive performance in a Week 15 divisional match-up with Philadelphia

UPDATE: McLaurin finished the game with five receptions on five targets for 130 yards and one touchdown. He had a total of 24 fantasy points.

Terry McLaurin has caught three of three targets for 97 yards and one touchdown halfway through the third quarter in Week 15. McLaurin’s day is highlighted by a 75 yard touchdown which gave Washington an early lead in the first quarter.

Unfortunately for the Philadelphia defense, this is a scene that has played out once before. Averaging 12.7 points per game, McLaurin has found his sweet spot against the Eagles. McLaurin made his NFL debut in Philadelphia, with a Week 1 performance in which he had five receptions for 125 yards and one touchdown, amounting to 23.5 fantasy points.

To this point, that was his second best performance of the season. McLaurin appears to have Philly’s number and he will look to continue to dominate his divisional foe as the second half continues.
