The Redskins have not been very fantasy relevant for wide receivers in the past. That changed last season when they hit big on rookie Terry McLaurin.
McLaurin went off the first three weeks of the season as he went from unknown rookie to a weekly fantasy starter. He missed a few games for the Redskins and cooled off mid-way through the year. Still, a strong rookie year as WR29 in PPR.
McLaurin’s ADP currently is WR23 at pick 63.1, making the sophomore receiver a WR2 target. Probably a little safer to trust him as your WR3 on your roster, but either way, McLaurin will provide weekly upside as a fantasy starter.
Outside of McLaurin, the rest of the Redskins’ receiving core does not look like one to go after in drafts. There are a few guys to keep tabs on and see if they emerge as fantasy assets. Steven Sims was second in WR targets on the team and did score five total touchdowns. He might be a guy to look at in deeper leagues.
Meanwhile, Kelvin Harmon and rookie Antonio Gandy-Golden are two other names on the Redskins to watch.
