WR Terry McLaurin - Washington Redskins
|6-0, 208||Born: 4-15-1996||College: Ohio State||Drafted: Round 3, pick 2019|
Week 11: vs New York Jets
FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Washington Redskins have officially committed to rookie Dwayne Haskins as their starting quarterback for the remainder of the 2019 campaign. This announcement came during the team's bye week, following a brutal 1-8 start to the season. In limited action this year, Haskins has been significantly worse under center than either Case Keenum or Colt McCoy, but this is a decision made with one eye on the future. In the short-term, Washington's already horrific passing attack is poised to struggle with Haskins at the helm. Through his first 44 pass attempts of his career, Haskins has 0 touchdowns, 4 interceptions, and has posted a measly 2.4 adjusted yards per attempt. Terry McLaurin remains the team's number-one target moving forward, as his dominance in Washington's passing attack cannot be understated. McLaurin was also a collegiate teammate of Haskins last season at Ohio State, whom Haskins specifically requested the Redskins draft alongside him. Paul Richardson is the team's next-best receiving option, but the volume and quality of targets available aside from McLaurin are uninspiring. Washington's offensive line ranks amongst the league's worst, which will not bode well for a young and developing quarterback this weekend in a typically run-heavy offensive attack. The New York Jets' pass defense faces a remarkably-high number of pass attempts, in large part thanks to the team's impressive run defense, and their efficiency numbers against the pass are respectable overall. The Jets' pass-rush is an average unit overall, headlined by an emerging Jordan Jenkins with five sacks on the edge. At linebacker, C.J. Mosely is going to miss week 11's game due to a groin injury. In his place, James Burgess has started at linebacker. Burgess is a horrific pass defender, and teams have exploited this over the middle in recent weeks with Mike Gesicki and Rhett Ellison, two underwhelming fantasy producers, to post 15.5 and 7.2 PPR points, respectively. The Jets' secondary has been a strength of this team, with Marcus Maye, Jamal Adams, and Brian Poole leading an impressive unit, but recent injuries have left the unit exposed elsewhere. Trumaine Johnson made his way to the IR two weeks ago, and Darryl Roberts' status is in question this weekend due to a calf injury. In his place, expect either Arthur Maulet or Blessuan Austin, both of whom are inexperienced and uninspiring reserves, to enter the starting lineup at cornerback. Last weekend, Daniel Jones carved up the Jets for 300 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions in a shockingly-strong performance by the rookie. This weekend, another rookie, Dwayne Haskins, will need to exploit these few relative weaknesses in the Jets' defense if he has any hopes of success with the odds stacked against him here in week 11.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 9 vs BUF (6 / 4 / 39 / 0 rec)
Terry McLaurin had four receptions on six targets against Buffalo. Many of his targets were on shorter routes as the passing game was limited with Dwayne running the offense. Terry does well after the catch, but his best attribute is his deep speed. It is unlikely the Redskins will be able to maximize his abilities with Dwayne at quarterback. The offensively mindset has flipped to "run-first" with the new coaching staff which has also capped his production.
2019 Week 8 vs MIN (6 / 4 / 39 / 0 rec)
Terry McLaurin was on his way to a productive night but once Case Keenum went down his involvement was minimal. Terry record three receptions in the first half and showed great route running to gain separation in coverage. His speed has started to put defensive backs on their heels. Terry was targeted twice in the second half and was missed badly over the middle on a potential reception. Playing with the backup quarterback in the second half diminished any opportunity for a big game.
2019 Week 7 vs SF (2 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Terry McLaurin had one catch for eleven yards. He was only targeted twice as the passing game was basically non-existent in the adverse weather conditions.
2019 Week 6 vs MIA (7 / 4 / 100 / 2 rec)
Terry McLaurin lead the Redskins in yardage, targets, and scored the only two touchdowns for them today. He caught four of his seven targets and beat coverage easily both times for touchdowns. It was impressive for Terry to cash in on two of his four targets for touchdowns with the team going to a more run based offense. It's doubtful they will be able to stay with that most weeks which means bigger games could be on the horizon for Terry. His speed is a difference-maker for the Redskins offense. His second touchdown looked like a missed assignment, but he ran directly past the defensive back on a streak for a thirty-three-yard score.
2019 Week 5 vs NE (7 / 3 / 51 / 0 rec)
Terry McLaurin lead the team in total yardage and tied for the lead in targets with seven. Terry only managed to catch three of his targets as he came down with a couple of chunk gains. Patriots made sure not to let him get deep and with the shaky protection upfront he wasn't able to shake free on scramble plays. He is an explosive receiver as you can see even a limited duty.
2019 Week 3 vs CHI (8 / 6 / 70 / 1 rec)
Terry McLaurin scored a touchdown for his third consecutive game on Monday night. He had six receptions on eight targets. His eight targets were second most on the team. It seems the trust is growing weekly as demonstrated by the difficulty in Terry's touchdown grab. Case threw the ball up between what seemed to be two defenders. Terry showed off his strong hands and ability to catch in traffic to secure the score. It looked like he was mainly a deep threat, but this shows that maybe he is more complete than many believed.
2019 Week 2 vs DAL (9 / 5 / 62 / 1 rec)
Terry McLaurin looks to be Washington's top target in the passing game. He has the most targets today with nine and Case made a decisive effort to look his way. He was only able to haul in five of those eight receptions and much of his production came when the game was decided. Including the touchdown, he scored. Washington dialed up a couple of deep shots for him today but couldn't connect.
2019 Week 1 vs PHI (7 / 5 / 125 / 1 rec)
Terry McLaurin had his way with the Eagles secondary today. His speed was alarming as a lid-lifter in Gruden's offense. Terry was able to get behind the defense for a sixty-eight yard bomb in the first half as he burned the Eagles on a deep post route. Case overthrew him on a potential 2nd touchdown in the third quarter. He had five total receptions which indicates he may be a player the count on moving forward. His speed and explosive ability downfield will be utilized to offset the intermediate passing game. The coaching staff did a good job scheming up deep shots to him. Today proved he can be dangerous as a deep threat for Washington's offense.
