The Washington Football Team’s Terry McLaurin has played like a top-notch fantasy wideout despite his team’s inconsistency at quarterback and will be catching passes from Alex Smith in a Week 10 matchup against the Detroit Lions. Can McLaurin find success with Smith under center for a second straight week?

Fantasy Football analysis: Washington WR Terry McLaurin

McLaurin ranks seventh in receiving yards with 692 and has caught passes from three different quarterbacks. He notched seven catches for 115 yard and a score in Week 9 but his stats were boosted by a monster catch and run. He was targeted eight times and was only edged out by J.D. McKissic’s season-high mark of 14. McLaurin has the sixth-most targets (77) in the NFL and he should be able to perform at his usual level against the Lions’ below average secondary. He has five games with at least seven receptions and 70 receiving yards in 2020.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start McLaurin. He’s too much of a focal point to fade.
