Chiefs | Jeremy Maclin working with Alex Smith

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 12:15:05 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin and QB Alex Smith played catch for the first time since Maclin was acquired this offseason. Maclin said everything was smooth and that he was simply trying to get a feel for how Smith threw the football. Smith said he believes Maclin's transition into the Chiefs' offense will be relatively smooth since he has already played for head coach Andy Reid in Philadelphia.

Fantasy Tip: It's unrealistic to expect a duplication of last season from Maclin, when he tallied career highs in catches (85), yards (1,318) and touchdowns (10). Kansas City's offense isn't as high octane as the Eagles' offense and it's centered more on Jamaal Charles. Maclin could still post WR2 numbers when all is said and done. Alex Smith is somewhat underrated as a fantasy quarterback, but he's still not starter worthy even with Maclin in town.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews to have bigger role

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 10:52:50 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews said the team won't really have a designated No. 1 receiver in place to replace the production that will be lost with WR Jeremy Maclin signing with the Kansas City Chiefs. "People ask me about being the No. 1 wide receiver; Forget it," Matthews said. "I want us to be a receiving corps. That's what I want it to be." Matthews was the team's second leading receiver in 2014 with 67 catches for 872 yards and eight touchdowns as the slot receiver. Matthews is likely to play more in 2015 and on the outside. Head coach Chip Kelly said he sees Matthews playing "a lot of different spots." Kelly is confident in Matthews and WR Josh Huff, and TE Zach Ertz and RB Darren Sproles could be used more in the passing game.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews should be in line for more production, at least in catches and yardage in 2015. He'll have a much more gifted quarterback in Sam Bradford throwing him passes, too. In Kelly's offense, though, there's opportunity for Huff and Riley Cooper to be successful in the right matchups.

Chiefs | Jeremy Maclin signs with Chiefs

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 10:11:22 -0700

Free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Eagles) officially signed with the Kansas City Chiefs Wednesday, March 11. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Maclin will be the top receiving option in 2015, but his fantasy football value will likely take a hit this season as the Chiefs are a team did not throw a touchdown to a wide receiver in 2014.

Chiefs | KC to give Jeremy Maclin big money

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 11:05:12 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin is expected to sign a contract with the Kansas City Chiefs that is close to the $10 million a year Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb received from the Packers, according to a source. Maclin could even receive a little more than Cobb received in his contract.

Fantasy Tip: Maclin has a chance to be the No. 1 wide receiver with the Chiefs, but this move will hurt his fantasy value since the Chiefs did not throw a touchdown to a wide receiver this past season. Maclin probably should be considered a No. 3 receiver entering fantasy drafts next season.

Chiefs | Jeremy Maclin expected to sign with KC

Sun, 08 Mar 2015 17:53:43 -0700

Impending free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Eagles) is expected to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: While the Chiefs certainly need help at receiver, the move will likely hurt Maclin's value. He will move from Chip Kelly's wide-open offense to a Kansas City passing attack didn't register a single touchdown to a receiver last year.

Texans | Houston pursuing Jeremy Maclin

Sat, 07 Mar 2015 11:52:22 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent Jeremy Maclin is being pursued by the Houston Texans to replace WR Andre Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Maclin and the Eagles are still far apart on a new deal, so Maclin could very well sign with a new team. His fantasy value would take a hit in Houston, however, as he goes from Nick Foles to a team who doesn't know who their starting quarterback is yet.

Eagles | Jeremy Maclin deal not close with Eagles

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 11:25:20 -0800

Impending free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin is not close to a contract extension with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: There is a chance that Maclin could still be re-signed before free agency opens. He should be considered a fringe WR1 in 2015.

Eagles | Jeremy Maclin not tagged

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 14:00:05 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin did not receive the franchise tag before the deadline Monday, March 2. Maclin and the Eagles have been working on a long-term deal and have until Tuesday, March 10, to get one done or else Maclin will become a free agent.

Fantasy Tip: Maclin would be one of the top free agents on the market if he is not re-signed, though it's more likely that he will be retained. He was a WR1 last season and should be considered a fringe WR1 in 2015, especially with a healthy Nick Foles set to return.

Eagles | PHI faces tag decision on Jeremy Maclin

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 04:11:49 -0800

Free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Eagles) and the Philadelphia Eagles are trying to work out a new contract, but the team has until 4 p.m. Monday, March 2, to put the franchise tag on Maclin.

Fantasy Tip: This could go either way. Geoff Mosher of CSN Philly says it is likely the franchise tag will be applied, but both sides are trying to hammer out a deal before free agency opens on Tuesday, March 10. Maclin had 1,318 yards and scored 10 touchdowns on 85 catches, making him a solid WR1 in most formats.

Eagles | Jeremy Maclin unlikely for tag

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 10:03:19 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin is unlikely to receive the franchise tag because of the kind of financial commitment it would entail. It's still likely that the Eagles will work out a long-term deal with him.

Fantasy Tip: Back to full health in 2014, Maclin proved to us that he can be a solid WR2 in point-per-reception leagues again. Regardless of if he re-signs with the Eagles, he should remain in that territory for fantasy football owners.
