Neither WFT QB Taylor Heinicke nor Kyle Allen tested out. So they remain on the Reserve/COVID list. It's a big game for both teams who need this win to keep pace for a wild card playoff spot. With Gilbert getting the nod, it's a huge downgrade for the passing game and McLaurin.
WAS WR Terry McLaurin - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Terry McLaurin finished 3-40 on six targets last week as Washington's offense struggled to move the ball against the Cowboys. Interestingly enough, McLaurin still played on 92% of the offensive snaps last week despite the blowout, and despite the fact Washington pulled starters Taylor Heinicke and Antonio Gibson. It's been a frustrating year for McLaurin who is averaging 1.4 receptions and 14.6 yards less per game compared to last year. He hasn't been terrible, but most of his production has been carried by four big games. In fact, McLaurin has only scored touchdowns this season in games where he's finished with 100 receiving yards or more (4). And outside of those four games, he's only finished with at least five receptions one other time. Because of this, he should be viewed more as a WR3 heading into his Week 17 matchup vs. the Eagles. When he played Philly just a few weeks ago, he finished 2-51 on four targets, although that was with a quarterback the team just signed that week.
