Terry McLaurin 2020 Fantasy Football Recap
Despite working with four different starting quarterbacks in 2020, Terry McLaurin built on an already impressive rookie 2019 campaign with new career-highs in receptions and receiving yardage last season. The Ohio State product was also charged with just three drops after going spotless in that category as a rookie, and his excellent speed led to 17 receptions of greater than 20 yards.

Terry McLaurin 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook
McLaurin could be in excellent position to exponentially increase his numbers yet again in 2021 based on the new man under center. Ryan Fitzpatrick was brought in this offseason in the wake of Alex Smith’s retirement, and the veteran gunslinger and McLaurin could certainly develop a quick rapport if Fitzpatrick wins the starting job and picks up the nuances of the offense quickly. It’s worth noting Fitzpatrick is just two seasons removed from having completed 43 passes of greater than 20 yards in 15 games for the Dolphins in 2019, and he added another 24 in just nine contests a year ago.
McLaurin’s spot as the unquestioned No. 1 receiver in Washington is safe, even with the offseason arrival of Curtis Samuel. Therefore, the third-year wideout should have a fighting chance of garnering north of 130 targets again in 2021 while potentially logging over 1,000 snaps for the second consecutive season as well.

Terry McLaurin 2021 Fantasy Football Draft Value (PPR)
McLaurin has demonstrated an ability to put together very strong fantasy production despite a revolving door at quarterback, so the expected additional stability at the position this season should only help lock in another impressive campaign for him. The Ohio State product has also proven durable, playing 29 of a possible 32 games over his first two seasons. With a QB better suited to get him the deep ball in Fitzpatrick, McLaurin could hit the ground running and break through the top 20 at his position fantasy-wise in 2021.
