The Washington Football Team were without second-year wideout Terry McLaurin last, who was out with an ankle injury. Therefore, that left opportunities for both Steven Sims and Cam Sims. If McLaurin is healthy to play on Sunday, should you start him? Or should you think about picking up either one of the Sims? Let’s break it down below.
Fantasy Football analysis: Washington WRs Terry McLaurin, Cam Sims, Steven Sims
The Washington Football Team announced on Friday that McLaurin is listed as questionable with an ankle injury. The second-year wideout didn’t play last week against the Panthers. But if he’s healthy enough this week, McLaurin could create a few big passing plays against a beleaguered Eagles’ secondary.
In Week 15 against the Seattle Seahawks, McLaurin posted seven receptions (12 targets) for 77 yards, which was better than the previous two games against the Pittsburgh Steelers and San Francisco 49ers. Despite only having three touchdowns on the season, McLaurin has been a solid WR2 in fantasy football.
Meanwhile, Steven Sims had one of his better performances this season last week. The former Kansas Jayhawk recorded four receptions (six targets) for 52 yards. Cam Sims had three receptions (nine targets) for 63 yards. In WFT’s last four games, Sims has 14 receptions (28 targets) for 189 yards. If McLaurin is shadowed by Slay, then one of these two wide receivers could find themselves matched up against Michael Jacquet III, who struggled mightily last week against the Dallas Cowboys.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start — McLaurin as a WR2
Sit — Steven Sims, Cam Sims
