What to do with Terry McLaurin in Week 15 of the fantasy football playoffs

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Terry McLaurin ahead of Washington’s Week 15 matchup against the Seahawks.

While Washington gears up to take on the Seahawks this week, one can’t help but wonder if Terry McLaurin will be a big part of the picture in this weekend’s game. Washington have won their last four games after losing seven of their first nine, so it’s looking up for the team even though McLaurin’s production rate has gone down. QB Alex Smith has been ruled out of this week’s contest due to a calf injury, so it look as though Dwayne Haskins will get the starting role against the Seahawks.

Fantasy Football analysis: Washington WR Terry McLaurin

McLaurin has only seen six targets in the last two games each, which is down quite a bit from earlier in the season when he was seeing 10+ targets in several games. Regardless, he’s only scored three touchdowns on the year which doesn’t bode too well for him in an average game. Luckily, they’ll be going up against a Seahawks defense who have allowed a league-high 363 passes completed this year and have been very generous to opposing wide receivers. So despite McLaurin’s targets and production decreasing over the previous weeks, it’s safe to say that he’s a solid WR2 option for any fantasy team as Washington could very well stomp the Seahawks with their WR game as so many other teams have done this year.
