Jeremy Maclin reunites with Andy Reid-- Wed Mar 11 1:21 pm --
Fantasy value takes a hit
Jeremy Maclin officially reunites with Andy Reid and returns to Missouri.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that the 26-year-old's contract with the Kansas City Chiefs is for five years and $55 million dollars. (NFL.com)
FF Today's Take:The Chiefs will need to clear some cap space which could mean the release of WR Dwayne Bowe. Maclin missed 2013 with a knee injury then posted his first 1000-yd season last year in Chip Kelly's high-volume offense. Maclin may be the Chiefs No.1 wide receiver but he'll get no such volume in Kansas City. Andy Reid's offense doesn't typically favor one target, as a result Maclin's fantasy value takes a hit. Low-end WR2 will likely be Maclin's value this summer.
Maclin expected to reunite with Andy Reid-- Sun Mar 8 10:06 pm --
Free agent wide receiver to sign with KC
Receiver Jeremy Maclin plans to reunite with former coach Andy Reid on the Kansas City Chiefs once free agency officially begins on Tuesday, according to league sources. The Chiefs will need to clear salary-cap space to sign Maclin.
FF Today's Take:Maclin would be a good fit in Kansas City as he's familiar with Reid's offense so the learning curve would be minimal. However, the amount of TDs scored by the Chiefs wide receivers last season has been well documented and Alex Smith's tendency to throw short and intermediate passes will put a damper on Maclin's fantasy prospects in KC. Maclin's low-end WR1 value has just dropped significantly.
Eagles, Maclin at a standstill in negotiations-- Sat Jan 24 8:00 am --
New deal was close towards the end of last season
It was considered a no-brainer that wide receiver and free-agent-to-be Jeremy Maclin would be back. According to a person familiar with the situation, who requested anonymity, Caplan is right ó the Eagles and Maclin have hit a bit of a wall in their contract negotiations after nearly having a deal completed towards the end of last season. (NJ.com)
FF Today's Take:Most believe a deal will eventually get done but the switching of agents by Maclin has caused a delay in the process. Maclin led the Eagles in receiving last season and finished as the No.9 fantasy receiver in standard scoring leagues with a 86-1329-10 stat line. He'll be solid WR2 in re-draft leagues should he come to terms with the Eagles on a new deal.
