Predictions for the Washington Football Teams WRs and TEs in 2020
Terry McLaurin had a sensational rookie campaign in 2019 and he is certain to build on that success in his second year. Being paired with his college quarterback for what is hopefully a full season will be an added bonus.
McLaurin could vault himself into the elite corps of receivers in the NFL. At the very least, he will be in that conversation.
Prediction for McLaurin: 71 receptions, 1,098 yards, 29 yards rushing, 11 touchdowns

Steven Sims was an unknown entity when the WFT signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Kansas last year. Kaboom! What a great rookie season! He is electrifying. He is exciting. He is dynamic. He is amazing.
Ok, enough of the never-ending praise, but you get the idea. Sims should be able to build on his first season and have a very good impact.
Prediction for Sims: 54 receptions, 778 yards, 57 yards rushing, six touchdowns, one rushing touchdown
Antonio Gandy-Golden is having an outstanding training camp from all reports and is earning high praise from his teammates, especially those in the receiving corps. He comes from a non-Power Five program (Liberty), but his production at that level was massive. AGG has a knack for spectacular catches and he should produce good numbers in 2020
Prediction for Gandy-Golden: 37 receptions, 408 yards, four touchdowns
Dontrelle Inman was added to the roster recently after Kelvin Harmon was lost to an injury and Cody Latimer became embroiled in legal issues. Inman is a decent receiver, but he will not overwhelm you with talent and big numbers. The former Virginia Cavalier will see a fair amount of playing time in 2020, but his impact will be minimal.
Prediction for Inman: 21 receptions, 167 yards, one touchdown
Trey Quinn continues to defy the odds and maintain an address in Ashburn. Quinn had a very good season in 2019 and he could continue to improve in 2020. He is reliable and able to move the sticks when called upon. He may not generate the numbers of other players, but this former SMU standout provides stability and sure hands as a reserve receiver.
Prediction for Quinn: 31 receptions, 223 yards, two touchdowns
We have five receivers listed instead of the usual six or so that we see on most NFL rosters, but the WFT has options coming out of the backfield and as it was mentioned earlier, we will take a look at that group in the coming days. This article was written (not edited or proofed) before our Jacob Camenker’s roster prediction, but he also has (the same) five receivers listed.
Some fans are expecting Thad Moss to be on the roster of 53 and while that is possible, he was omitted from these predictions. Don’t be surprised if he is placed on the practice squad with full protections this season.
We will make some quarterback and running back predictions soon and then our attention will shift to the defense. The opening game is less than a month away. Football is oh so close!
