Jeremy Maclin Injury Update: J-Mac looks to gain fantasy value with new QB

Rich Schultz

Jeremy Maclin is expected to play with his new quarterback. Should you feel like he's gained value with Vick out of the lineup?

Jeremy Maclin (back) is probable to face the Redskins after a full week of practice. He will start and should be on the field for the overwhelming majority of the game.

Maclin has been on a bumpy ride this year with his 36 catches for 449 yards and four TDs. He only has one 100-yard game, but he's caught six balls or more in three of his last four contests.

Fantasy Impact: Maclin caught a 44-yard TD last week as Nick Foles hit him for a wide-open TD. The young QB can get the ball down the field and the Eagles are probably going to run a lot of max-protect schemes to keep him upright. That means there will be less options and Maclin should see a lot of looks.

He's a low-end WR2 with upside in a nice matchup.
