Eagles | Jeremy Maclin carted off, believes he tore ACL

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) was carted off the field Saturday, July 27, and he believes he tore his anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Losing Maclin would be a big blow to the Eagles offense. Arrelious Benn or Jason Avant would step into his spot, which would be a significant downgrade. Avant could keep some stability to the offense as a good possession receiver with DeSean Jackson opening things up downfield. However, Avant would serve as little more than a matchup or flex receiver. Jackson's value takes a hit as defenses will likely key in on him with extra coverage. Jackson still serves as a good No. 2 fantasy receiver.
