The Washington Football Team continues to stay the course with regards to the team name, dragging its heels on moving on from the previous monicker. Head coach Ron Rivera returns, as does much of the defense from a team that won the NFC East despite going 7-9. Ryan Fitzpatrick continues his journeyman NFL career with the franchise at QB and will be expected to provide explosiveness for an offense ripe with young talent.

Here, we’ll take a look at the prop bets on the table for Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin on DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of the 2021 NFL season and make our picks.

1180.5 receiving yards: Over (-110) or Under (-120)

Our pick: Over

McLaurin put up 1,118 yards last season and is clearly the top receiver in Washington’s offense. Antonio Gibson will get significant work and Logan Thomas is a threat at tight end, but Fitzpatrick is going to be looking for McLaurin more often than not. With the additional game, over 1,180.5 yards is achievable.

86.5 receptions: Over (-115) or Under (-115)

Our pick: Over

McLaurin had 87 receptions last season behind a rotating cast of quarterbacks. It appears Fitzpatrick is going to hold onto the job for the whole season as Washington doesn’t exactly have a highly-touted young passer ready to take over. Fitzpatrick is not shy about throwing the ball, meaning McLaurin will probably hit the over on volume alone.

6 receiving TDs: Over (-130) or Under (+100)

Our pick: Over

Fitzpatrick’s mentality should inject more life into this offense, which is good for McLaurin’s production. The receiver had seven touchdowns as a rookie, but only found the endzone four times last season. With the 17th game, McLaurin matching his rookie number seems likely. Thomas is going to get a lot of redzone looks, but McLaurin should hit the over here.
