Week 8: at Minnesota Vikings - $6200
FBG says: Bad matchup. The Washington Redskins have yet to throw for more than 166 yards in a game since Bill Callahan took over as head coach in place of Jay Gruden. Callahan publicly stated his intent to run the ball substantially more than the Redskins did in the opening five games of the season. Callahan's preference for the run-game is unusual, considering the Redskins have trailed for the majority of the season thus far, and the pass-heavy approach has been an effort to make up ground in the frequently lopsided games Washington has played. While last week's run-heavy game was a product of both a brutal matchup with the 49ers top-ranked defense as well as torrential downpours throughout the game, Washington held true to Callahan's wishes in his coaching debut. In the team's lone victory against the Miami Dolphins, Case Keenum threw for only 166 yards. Rookie standout Terry McLaurin still managed to post respectable numbers in the game, however. McLaurin finished with 4 catches on 7 targets for precisely 100 yards and 2 touchdowns. McLaurin is the only non-running back on the Redskins with more than 165 receiving yards this season, as he has totaled 419 yards even while missing one game due to an injury. Aside from the rookie, no pass-catcher has been able to make a consistent impact in the passing game. Washington's offensive line is an average unit. All five starters in the trenches are approximately average for their respective positions in 2019. As the lone play-maker in a low-volume passing attack, Terry McLaurin is the only semi-reliable producer in Washington's struggling offense. The Minnesota Vikings have defended the fourth-most pass attempts in the NFL so far this season, in large part due to their run-heavy offense minimizing the opposition's scoring opportunities. Although the Vikings have faced a high volume of pass attempts, the efficiency numbers they have allowed ranks amongst the league's best. Minnesota's strong pass defense starts with the pass rush. Along the defensive line, both Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter rank amongst the league's top edge rushers. Hunter ranks fourth in the NFL with seven sacks, while Griffen has contributed four sacks of his own. At linebacker, Eric Kendricks is one of the best coverage linebackers in the league. In limited playing time, Eric Wilson has also thrived in coverage, but he has been on the field for approximately 25-percent of total coverage snaps. In the secondary, Minnesota's weakness at cornerback has been masked by elite safety play. Harrison Smith and Anthony Harris make up, arguably, the league's best safety pairing. Both Smith and Harris are elite in coverage- Harris leads the team with two interceptions, and Smith has one of his own through the first seven games of the season. In a short week matchup that has typically favored the defensive side of the ball, expect Minnesota's defense to suffocate the Washington passing attack in week eight. Barring true heroics from rookie Terry McLaurin, there is no viable candidate to gash the Vikings' secondary and produce respectable numbers for Washington in this game.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 7 vs SF (2 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec - 2.1 points, $6100)
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 - 29 points, $6000)
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 - 8.1 points, $5100)
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 - 19 points, $4500)
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 - 17.2 points, $3800)
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 - 26.5 points, $3300)
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.

Our View: Case Keenum's return and Xavien Howard being inactive combined to create a big day for McLaurin.
