For the 2nd straight game, WR Curtis Samuel led all Commanders in targets Sunday. He drew 9 in the 36-27 loss to Detroit, catching 7 for 78 yards and a TD. (Samuel added a carry for 21 yards.) WR Terry McLaurin checked in 2nd, catching 4 of his 8 targets for 75 yards. J.D. McKissic rebounded from a quiet Week 1 to rank 3rd with 7 targets, catching all of them for 54 yards. WR Jahan Dotson and TE Logan Thomas garnered 5 looks apiece and each caught a TD.

The Commanders plan to play QB Carson Wentz and other starters for about 15-20 snaps in the preseason opener against the Panthers, according to The Washington Post. We'd bet on that increasing for the 2nd exhibition. We'll be interested to see how Wentz fares with his new WRs, as well as rookie RB Brian Robinson's role and performance.

No more holdout worries for WR Terry McLaurin. He and the Commanders agreed to a 3-year, $70 million contract extension on Tuesday. That tacks on to the final year of his rookie deal to keep McLaurin signed through the 2025 season. He'll be 30 at that point. The 2019 3rd-rounder has opened his career with WR30, WR20 and WR36 finishes in PPR points per game -- despite often dealing with poor QB play. It's arguable whether Carson Wentz will stabilize that situation. McLaurin sits in mid-range WR2 territory in our 2022 rankings.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Commanders WR Terry McLaurin plans to miss this week's mandatory minicamp. The 4th-year wideout is looking for a new contract, as he heads into the final year of his rookie deal. Beyond the fine that will come with holding out, McLaurin will be missing practice time with new QB Carson Wentz. His absence will also afford extra reps for WRs such as rookie Jahan Dotson, Curtis Samuel and Cam Sims. We'll see how this situation develops. For now, we're not adjusting our outlook for McLaurin -- who just might be getting the best QB of his career to date.

Washington QB Taylor Heinicke has been activated from the COVID list, putting him on track to start Sunday night's game vs. the Cowboys. It's good news for the Washington offense, but Heinicke is just a low-end QB2 against the league's 4th-ranked QB defense.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin (concussion) isn't listed on the final Week 15 injury report after putting in 3 full practices this week. He'll play vs. the Eagles on Tuesday night. It remains unclear who McLaurin's QB will be for that one. Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen remain on the COVID list as of Monday afternoon but have until 4 pm ET on Tuesday to be activated. WR Curtis Samuel (hamstring) is out for Week 15.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin (concussion) was a full go in Saturday's practice. We won't get the team's final injury report until tomorrow with the game vs. the Eagles moved to Tuesday, but McLaurin now looks likely to play in that one. Washington's QB questions, though, leave him as a shaky play as anything more than a WR3.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin (concussion) has gotten in 2 limited practices this week. He now has 2 extra days to clear the protocol after his game vs. the Eagles got moved to Tuesday. We’ll keep you updated on his status, but it might be tough for fantasy owners to wait on McLaurin if we don’t hear that he’s cleared before the Sunday games kick off.

The Washington at Philadelphia game originally scheduled for Sunday has been moved to Tuesday at 7 pm ET due to The Football Team's COVID outbreak, insider Albert Breer reports. This game won't be on the DFS main slate but will still count for Week 15 in season-long leagues. We'll see if any of Washington's players currently on the COVID list are activated by Tuesday. The extra 2 days can't hurt Eagles QB Jalen Hurts, who is recovering from what's been reported as a high-ankle sprain. Washington WR Terry McLaurin and RB J.D. McKissic will have a better chance to clear concussion protocol before kickoff.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He's made some progress through the protocol and has a chance to be cleared for Sunday's game vs. the Eagles. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He has a lot of work to do if he wants to clear the concussion protocol before Sunday's game vs. the Eagles. At this point, fantasy owners should not be counting on McLaurin in Week 15 lineups.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin has been ruled out of Sunday's game vs. the Cowboys with a concussion. It's his 2nd documented concussion. We'll track his progress through the protocol this coming week.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) returned to a full practice on Thursday. It's confirmation that he'l be ready to rock for Sunday's game vs. the Broncos.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin missed Wednesday's practice and is on the injury report with an ankle. He'd previously been dealing with a hamstring injury. We're guessing that this is more of a maintenance day for McLaurin, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Update: Washington changed McLaurin's injury-report designation to hamstring. He should be fine for Sunday's game.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) isn't listed on the final injury report. He was a full-go in Friday's practice and will play his usual role against the Packers this weekend. WRs Curtis Samuel (groin) and Cam Sims (hamstring) are out again for Week 7.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He seemingly made it out of last week's loss to the Chiefs without a setback and should be ready for Sunday's game vs. the Packers.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He ended up playing 95% of the offensive snaps in last week's loss to the Chiefs. McLaurin should play vs. the Packers on Sunday, but it'd be nice to see him practice the next 2 days.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Chiefs. He was added to the injury report and listed as a non-participant in Friday’s practice. McLaurin did work off to the side on Friday, though, and HC Ron Rivera said afterward that they were operating more under "an abundance of caution.” ESPN's John Keim reported that McLaurin was “feeling good” on Saturday. He obviously comes with added risk in Week 6 fantasy lineups. But we’d have a tough time sitting McLaurin in this dream matchup vs. the Chiefs.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) is expected to play vs. the Chiefs today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. McLaurin was added to the injury report and sidelined on Friday with a hamstring. But everything we've heard since has been positive on his status. We'll continue to look for updates on the situation throughout the morning and will get McLaurin's game status around 11:30 am ET. But, as of now, he can be penciled into fantasy lineups.
