The Washington Football Team were given some scary news last week when standout wide receiver Terry McLaurin was placed into concussion protocol.

Fortunately, it's looking like Washington has dodged a bullet ahead of its Tuesday matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. Fantasy managers should also be thrilled following the latest McLaurin injury update.

As of Monday afternoon, McLaurin isn't carrying an injury designation heading into Tuesday's matchup. He participated in each of Washington's three practices, so it looks like his concussion is a thing of the past.

Terry McLaurin Fantasy Outlook

McLaurin has had his up-and-down weeks for fantasy managers this season, leading to him averaging 13.3 fantasy points per game as the WR24 in PPR leagues.

Nevertheless, McLaurin has really struggled over the last three games. He's caught just seven of 15 targets over that stretch, turning that into 73 yards as the WR92 since Week 12.

Even though his concussion is behind him, Scary Terry faces a tough test this week. The Eagles have allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points to wideouts this year and have given up the fewest receiving yards to the position.

On the other hand, McLaurin is also averaging 18.9 points in PRR over four all-time games against the Eagles. If there's anyone who can make the most out of a "bad" matchup, it's him.
