Sunday AM update: The injury report should not impact McLaurin’s fantasy prospects one way or the other. Dontrelle Inman and Isaiah Wright will see opportunities in the passing game, but McLaurin remains the only decent starting option among the Washington receivers. ESPN’s PPR projections have him at 12.7 points for Week 6.
After a 10-catch, 118 yard day against the Ravens a week prior, Washington Football team wide receiver Terry McLaurin had a quiet outing in the team’s 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams last Sunday.
With Kyle Allen poised to get the start at quarterback once again, the second-year product from Ohio State is looking to get rolling again when the Football Team heads up to MetLife to meet the New York Giants.
Fantasy Football analysis: Washington WR Terry McLaurin
McLaurin was targeted seven times in last week’s matchup with the Rams, only hauling in three of them for 26 yards. While not a great day by any means, most of that can be excused by a quarterback change happening midway through the second quarter and the Rams defense absolutely battering them for eight sacks, making life difficult for everyone on the Washington offense.
McLaurin and company will have a lighter task this week playing a fairly generous Giants pass defense that is yielding 7.8 yards per passing attempt and a 70.2 completion percentage.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
McLaurin is a good value pick at $5,700 in DFS this week and is a definite start against the winless New York Giants.
