Redskins Rookie Terry McLaurin Torches Eagles, Now Week 2 Fantasy Waiver Wire Priority

After playing about two snaps in his first ever NFL preseason, it was clear the Redskins had big plans for their rookie wideout. Just a year ago, Terry McLaurin was not on any NFL radars and now he’s on the radars of fantasy players all over the country as Case Keenum’s No. 1 play-maker. In his NFL debut, McLaurin was tied for second on the team with seven targets and caught five of those for 125 yards and a 69-yard touchdown. Nice. On that touchdown, he utilized his 4.35 speed to blow past the cement-footed Eagles’ corner on a skinny post and took Keenum’s pass to the crib. 

Looking like more than just a deep threat, the former Buckeye will be snatched off the Week 2 Waiver Wire in just about any legitimate league. Hopefully you listened to us back in early August when we highlighted his potential in what we thought would be a shitty offense. That first half was likely a fluke, but I’ll bet that McLaurin’s game was not a fluke.

If Keenum continues to play above average, it looks like their offense could be more fantasy-relevant than we initially thought. We aren’t telling you to go all-in on the waiver wire to grab him, but he’ll provide solid depth if a stream is necessary.
