|Maclin overcame some preseason injury issues (a medical condition that reportedly caused him to lose a pile of weight) to have a nice start to the season but the injury bug struck at midseason causing him to miss three games and preventing him from putting together his first 1,000-yard receiving season. The Eagles 2009 1st round pick is a talented player with above average speed and a willingness to catch the ball in traffic and over the middle but there is always a lingering suspicion that his production is tied to seeing less attention than his fellow starter DeSean Jackson. It is worth noting that the two Eagles receivers have produced similar fantasy point totals over the past two seasons. What makes Maclin more appealing from a fantasy perspective is his consistency and reduced risk profile. Maclin shows up every week when he is healthy and hasn’t showed himself to be a diva receiver during his three years in the league. While Maclin isn’t likely to generate the ten touchdowns that made him a solid fantasy option in 2010, he should come close to that given that he is a better red zone option than Jackson. Expect him to top 1,000 receiving yards for the first time this season and rank as a mid-tier WR2 at season’s end… without the headaches.

Chiefs WR held out last week as precaution, plans to suit up in London
|Receiver Jeremy Maclin was listed as questionable heading into Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but after he cleared the league’s concussion protocol and practiced on Friday, he appeared to have a pretty good shot at playing.
But things changed on Sunday morning, when the team decided Maclin would sit as he continues to recover from a concussion he suffered Oct. 18 against Minnesota.

FF Today's Take: Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he and head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder could tell that Maclin — who they spent time with in Philadelphia during 2009-12 — did not quite feel at ease with playing. given how close he was to playing in Week 7, he's a good shot to suit up for the game in London on Sunday.

Will pass concussion protocol

FF Today's Take: Maclin has missed the last days of practice so this is welcome news to the Chiefs and to Maclin owners. Maclin will be on the WR2 radar against the Steelers on Sunday.
| Jeremy Maclin misses practice Wednesday -- Wed Oct 21 3:41 pm --|
|Jeremy Maclin missed practice Wednesday due to a concussion, the Kansas City Chiefs announced. Maclin exited the Chiefs' Week 6 loss versus the Vikings after suffering the blow in the fourth quarter. He did not return. The receiver needs to pass concussion protocol this week to be eligible to play Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
FF Today's Take: Taking Maclin out of a passing offense that is already limited on potential would spell doom for fantasy owners. Albert Wilson and Chris Conley would take on larger roles alongside TE Travis Kelce in the passing attack if Maclin sits.
