2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
McLaurin has certainly exceeded expectations in regards to his original third-round NFL Draft capital, but fantasy owners who've been convinced that he's ready to break into the elite WR range have been left disappointed over his past two seasons. Still, back-to-back 1000-yard seasons while being thrown to by the likes of Taylor Heinicke, Kyle Allen and the broken down remains of Alex Smith certainly gives us hope that we've yet to see the best from McLaurin.

McLaurin now has a new quarterback as the Commanders acquired Carson Wentz via trade. Wentz joins the team after a decent season with the Colts and he will almost certainly be the best QB that McLaurin has played with. More specifically, Wentz is a passer who likes to push the ball down the field, which has been a problem for every other Washington quarterback that McLaurin has played with. We've seen McLaurin produce big numbers when he's been targeted downfield in the past, so there's plenty of reasons to be optimistic that he's headed for his best fantasy season yet in 2022.

On the other hand, there are some concerns that make drafting McLaurin a bit of a risk right now. The most pressing issue is that McLaurin is currently entrenched in a contract dispute with the Commanders as he is looking to get paid now that he has delivered multiple quality NFL seasons. We haven't heard that Washington is unwilling to give McLaurin an extension, but the fact that they haven't already come to an agreement and he's now sitting out mandatory team activities is certainly a cause for worry. It's more likely than not that McLaurin will be suiting up for Washington in Week 1, but the risk that he sits out an extended period of time remains and is rightfully suppressing his average draft position a bit.

The other concern is that Washington has made multiple moves to acquire new talent at wide receiver over the past two seasons. Most recently the team drafted wide receiver Jahan Dotson in April's NFL Draft, spending a mid-first-round pick to acquire the former Penn State wideout. While rookie wide receivers don't often supplant established star receivers very quickly, it seems obvious that Dotson will step on the field and immediately be the best wide receiver teammate that McLaurin has played with in the NFL. Add in the fact that the team added Dyami Brown with a third-round draft pick in 2021 along with veteran Curtis Samuel and it's starting to look like there will be more competition for targets for McLaurin in 2022.

McLaurin is the kind of player who can make up for a lower target share with increased efficiency on the targets he does see, especially if Wentz is targeting him down the field consistently, but there is a lot of potential volatility with McLaurin headed into this year and that makes him much more of a boom-or-bust type of player than we would've previously considered him to be.

News From The Past 90 Days
Terry McLaurin gets three-year extension
$53 million in guarantees
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jun 28, 3:20 pm

Washington Redskins
Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin is signing a three-year extension worth up to $71 million in new money that places him among the NFL's five highest-paid WRs, sources told ESPN. The deal contractually ties McLaurin, 26, to Washington through the 2025 season. McLaurin's rookie contract had been set to expire after the 2022 season. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The deal includes roughly $53 million in guarantees which is all that really matters. McLaurin decided not to attend the mandatory minicamp but this deal should pave the way for him to be at training camp in a few weeks. McLaurin finished as the WR33 in PPR leagues last season in fantasy points per game but will be viewed as more of a low-end WR2 by most fantasy owners.


Terry McLaurin not expected to attend minicamp this week
Wants a contract extension
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Jun 13, 10:01 am

Washington Redskins
Washington WR Terry McLaurin does not plan to attend this week’s mandatory minicamp, per source. McLaurin is continuing to seek a contract extension consistent with other comparable WRs that recently signed; until he has it, he will miss reps with new Washington QB Carson Wentz. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: As we know, the wide receiver market has ballooned in price this off-season and now every player in striking distance of a new deal wants a raise. These things typically take care of themselves with time and it's not much of a concern for fantasy owners until McLaurin begins missing training camp.
