2021 Fantasy Outlook
McLaurin had a modest fantasy season, in large part due to substandard quarterback play and a sluggish offense that netted him only four touchdowns in 15 games. His usage was there — 35.2 percent of his team’s air yards and 23.3 percent of its target volume despite the missed game — but the explosive plays were not (only three catches of 40-plus yards on 134 targets). He finished the year with 12.9 YPC and an average target depth of only 9.3 yards, down from 15.8 YPC and a 14.0 aDOT his rookie season. That’s likely to rebound in 2021, as Ryan Fitzpatrick should be an upgrade for the passing game, and there’s not much doubt about McLaurin’s talent. At 6-0, 210, he has excellent size and strength for a player who ran a 4.35 40 at the 2019 combine. While he’s not quite the freak DK Metcalf is, McLaurin is quicker and more agile than Metcalf and more polished as a route runner. Newly signed Curtis Samuel is another mouth to feed in the Washington passing game, but TE Logan Thomas and RB J.D. McKissic won’t come close to their 220 combined targets from last season unless injuries force OC Scott Turner to put the offense back in a dink-and-dunk shell again. The hope now is that Turner and Fitzpatrick open up the offense for more shots downfield, allowing McLaurin to combine his 2019 deep-ball prowess with his 2020 volume. Read Past Outlooks

Paces pass catchers in win

September 16, 2021
McLaurin secured 11 of 14 targets for 107 yards and a touchdown in Washington's 30-29 win over the Giants on Thursday night.
ANALYSIS
The speedy third-year man was unsurprisingly Taylor Heinicke's top target throughout the night, and he contributed several key receptions. McLaurin came down with a contested 11-yard touchdown grab early in the second quarter, and he also notched a six-yard catch to move the ball to the Giants' 30 on the offense's penultimate play from scrimmage during Washington's game-winning drive. Through two games, McLaurin has now recorded 15 receptions for 169 yards, and his rapport with Heinicke on Thursday certainly sends him into a Week 3 road contest versus the Bills a week from Sunday with plenty of momentum.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
It's hard to overstate how impressive McLaurin's debut campaign was. Despite catching passes from an overmatched Dwayne Haskins and a backup-quality Case Keenum, the rookie averaged 15.8 YPC (7th among the league's 40 90-target WR), 9.9 YPT (5th) and scored seven times in only 14 games. At 6-0, 210, McLaurin is stout for his height, and he ran a blistering 4.35 40 at the 2019 combine while showcasing a 37.5-inch vertical and 125-inch broad jump. He's already emerged as one of the NFL's better downfield threats - his average depth of target was 13.8 yards (8th) as he piled up 1,287 air yards on only 93 targets. Washington rarely used McLaurin in the red zone - only 13 targets there all season, and seven from inside the 10 - but that could change soon with new coach Ron Rivera and offensive coordinator Scott Turner taking over. In any event, McLaurin has little competition as the team's top option. Steve Sims and Kelvin Harmon are the highest-ranked returnees on the depth chart, while third- and fourth-round picks Antonio Gibson and Antonio Gandy-Golden, respectively, will also battle for targets. The biggest factor for 2020 will be Haskins' development. He was terrible for his first seven games last year, but played better in his final two. Haskins doesn't need to be great for a receiver of McLaurin's talents to thrive, but he'll have to sustain a base level of competence.
Taken with the 76th pick of the draft, McLaurin has a chance to make an impact right away. With only the disappointing Josh Doctson (whom the team declined to extend to a fifth year) and the injury-prone and still recovering Paul Richardson ahead of him on the depth chart, McLaurin could lead the team in targets as a rookie. At 6-0, 205, McLaurin has just average size, but he ran a blistering 4.35 40 at the combine, along with a 37.5-inch vertical and solid 125-inch broad jump. McLaurin saw only 43 targets at Ohio State last year, but scored 11 times, and has the advantage of having played with (and being the current roommate of) the team's first-round quarterback Dwayne Haskins. The rookie will battle with Case Keenum for the quarterback job initially, but even if Keenum were to win out, there's a good chance Haskins would take over before long.
