|Can we please get this man a quarterback?
It's been four seasons of the Commanders trotting out who's-who of garbage quarterbacks, yet Terry McLaurin has managed to average over 1,000 receiving yards per season. His 21 touchdowns are a disappointing total, but that's to be expected when he's been practically the only viable downfield threat for the team prior to them drafting Jahan Dotson this past season. Despite a carousel behind center for yet another year, McLaurin managed to set career highs in receiving yards and air yards while tying a career low with just three drops in 2022. What's perhaps most impressive is that McLaurin had some of his best games when being matched up against some of the league's best cornerbacks, including Stephon Gilmore, Darius Slay, and Jaire Alexander.
It would be great if we could somehow tell the story that Washington's quarterback situation looks like it's in for a significant improvement, but that's just not likely to happen with Sam Howell behind center. Howell does, however, add a bit of mobility and might be able to breathe some life into this offense as a whole. Additionally, a glance at his college highlight reel indicates that he throws a fairly accurate deep ball which could benefit McLaurin in particular.
Another fantasy season in the WR2 range looks like the most likely outcome for McLaurin, so don't expect some huge breakout season for the fifth-year wideout, but he's a safe player who should provide relatively consistent numbers even with mediocre quarterback play.
