Philadelphia Eagles: Is Jeremy Maclin a Weekly Fantasy Football Start?
The Philadelphia Eagles just tied the game up at seven on a Jeremy Maclin touchdown reception.The key to the play was Maclin's teammate Desean Jackson pulling the defense all to the left, allowing Maclin to sneak out to the right uncovered.
The question posed after this is how valuable is Maclin in a fantasy league.
Of course the first option of the Eagles passing attack is Desean Jackson, but after him there is a bit of confusion as to who Vick looks for second.
The Eagles have always looked to their running back as a receiver, and that is the same for LeSean McCoy.
That being said, when looking down-field I think Vick's second option is still Maclin, who seems to be improving every week.
Of course just like any other wide receiver in fantasy they are going to have their down weeks, like Week 1 when he only had a single reception for 20 yards. However, the upside is there and with such a high powered offense it is not unheard of for him to catch 10 touchdowns this season.
Michael Vick's scrambling ability allows his receivers to get open, and both Maclin and Jackson benefit from this.
To conclude, Maclin is only going to gain in value as the season goes on, so get him now while he is relatively cheap and plug him into your starting line-up. He may have weeks where he is held to one or two catches, but he will have other weeks when he has six catches and 70 yards, good enough for a solid fantasy performance.
