The Washington Football Team's star wide receiver Terry McLaurin looked to be in jeopardy of missing Week 12 against the Dallas Cowboys. He was limited by an ankle injury all week in practice leading up to the game.

Terry McLaurin Injury Update

Thankfully, McLaurin has been deemed healthy enough to play and will be active on Thanksgiving. Even if he's not operating at 100%, the second-year wideout looks like a top-five fantasy play at the position this week.

Terry McLaurin Fantasy Outlook

McLaurin has become a true set-it-and-forget-it wide receiver. He's been as consistent as it gets, scoring at least 11.0 PPR points in nine of his 10 appearances in 2020.

But he has real weekly upside as well. He's had 4 performances of at least 20.0-plus PPR points on the year, one of which came against this Cowboys' defense in Week 7. McLaurin is also averaging 18.4 per game over his last three since Alex Smith took over in Week 9.

Against Dallas' defense that surrenders the second-most PPR points to opposing wide receivers, McLaurin is a no-doubt WR1 in Week 12.
