Jeremy Maclin healthy for now, fantasy value decent for now

Jeremy Maclin is healthy enough to play against the Steelers this week but how long with that last? We break down the fantasy implications.

You will not see at least one familiar face on the Eagles injury report this week: Jeremy Maclin. The Philly wideout has missed one game this year and regularly shown up on the practice injury report but there is no injury to report this week as the Eagles prepare to face the Steelers. Maclin missed three games last season as well when he had 859 yards and five touchdowns but he's been slower out of the gate this year with 126 yards in those three games and only 30 yards since week 1.

Fantasy Take: A healthy Maclin sits squarely at the end of the WR2 chart and is worthy of a start in that position against a Pittsburgh defense that isn't as "vaunted" as it once was. The Steelers are fifth in total defense but gave up over 30 points to the Broncos and Raiders. I wouldn't surprised if Maclin scores once and maybe twice, on Sunday.
