Chiefs | Jeremy Maclin sharp Friday

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 20:51:21 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin had seven catches for 65 yards and a touchdown in a 34-10 win over the Tennessee Titans in a preseason game Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Maclin has looked solid in the preseason, and while his value dipped when he left Philadelphia in the offseason, he is still worth drafting as a WR2.

Chiefs | Jeremy Maclin makes impact

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 22:02:59 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin caught three passes for 22 yards and a score in the first half of a preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks Friday, Aug. 21, and he added one carry for eight yards.

Fantasy Tip: Although Maclin has yet to connect with QB Alex Smith on a big play, he did manage to catch the first touchdown by a Kansas City receiver in more than a year. He should still be a useful QB2 in 2015 despite trading Philadelphia's high-powered offense for the Chiefs' more conservative approach.

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 06:36:35 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (neck) returned to practice Wednesday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Maclin is a WR2, but he loses a bit of luster with the move from Philly to KC.

Chiefs | Alex Smith impressed with Jeremy Maclin

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 15:42:00 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin has impressed QB Alex Smith in practices this summer. "I feel like that's the ultimate tool. For coach (Andy) Reid, he just loves drawing up stuff and creating stuff, so Jeremy will be all over the field," Smith said. "He'll be inside, he'll be outside, deep, short, running the ball, throwing the ball. I mean Jeremy is a guy that can do so much." Head coach Andy Reid's schemes and offensive language remain largely the same from the time he and Maclin worked together with the Philadelphia Phillies, so Maclin doesn't need a ton of time to acclimate to his new offense.

Fantasy Tip: Kansas City's signing of Maclin drastically upgraded their receiving corps immediately. He's expected to be Smith's top target, and he could open up valuable running and receiving room for the rest of the team's offensive weapons. Consider Maclin a WR2 in 2015.

Chiefs | Jeremy Maclin injured

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 14:05:47 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (neck) did not practice Monday, Aug. 10, because of a neck strain.

Fantasy Tip: A neck strain is pretty low on the totem pole of serious injuries. He's the Chiefs' best receiver so Kansas City might wait to make sure he's fully healthy before Maclin practices or plays. Assuming full health, Maclin is in WR2 territory this year.

Chiefs | Jeremy Maclin stretching the field

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 17:17:59 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin caught a long pass from QB Alex Smith on the second play of training camp Saturday, Aug. 1, and he caught a few more deep balls during the day. "We've got a new weapon," Smith said. "We've got to test it out a little bit. We've known for a while what we've got with him."

Fantasy Tip: Maclin gives the Kansas City offense a dimension it lacked last season, and while he is unlikely to deliver as many explosive plays as he did in Philadelphia, he is still the No. 1 target for the Chiefs and should make a solid WR2.

Chiefs | Jeremy Maclin returns to practice

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 13:21:30 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (foot) returned to practice as a full participant Thursday, June 11. He missed practice Wednesday, June 10, with inflammation in his foot.

Fantasy Tip: On paper, Maclin lost fantasy value when he went from Philadelphia to Kansas City. Maclin achieved 85 catches for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns with the Eagles last season. He won't see that same kind of production with Alex Smith and Co. Maclin immediately became the Chiefs' No. 1 wide receiver, however, and is still in WR2 territory.

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.
