|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.

Out since Week 9 with groin injury

FF Today's Take: While it is good news for the Chiefs, Maclin should be limited at best in freezing temps after a month-long absence. Owners should avoid starting him if at all possible. Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill should be the only Kansas City pass-catchers considered worthy of a start in fantasy.
| Chiefs optimistic on Maclin for Thursday -- Mon Dec 5 2:10 pm --|
|Chiefs optimistic that WR Jeremy Maclin, who has missed past 4 games due to groin injury, will return for Thursday vs. Raiders, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Maclin has missed the last four games with a groin injury and practiced on a limited basis last week. With the Chiefs playing Thursday night, we'll get a good indication of his true status by Wednesday.
| Jeremy Maclin downgraded to Out -- Sat Dec 3 10:39 am --|
Limited in practice all week
|Jeremy Maclin won’t play for the fourth straight week, the Chiefs announced Saturday, the day before their game at Atlanta.
Maclin returned to practice this week but was downgraded from questionable to out on the Chiefs’ final injury report. He has been recovering from a groin injury since the Chiefs’ Nov. 6 game vs. Jacksonville. (Kansas City Star)|
FF Today's Take: Maclin was limited in practice this week with a groin injury but will miss this weekend's tilt with the Falcons. The Chiefs play the Raiders on Thursday night next week. With Maclin out, Tyreek Hill becomes a viable WR3 for fantasy owners with WR1 upside in a game the Chiefs are likely to be playing from behind.

Testing out injured groin

FF Today's Take: Maclin will "test things out" according to head coach Andy Reid. Maclin will likely be listed as a limited participant. Maclin has been out of action since very early in Week 9.
