Jeremy Maclin limited with a back ailment, a fantasy go in Week 16

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin was limited on Wednesday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles wide out Jeremy Maclin was limited in Wednesday's practice session, via Geoff Mosher. The Eagles receiver was listed on the team's injury report with a back injury.

Maclin has been banged up this year, but has yet to miss any significant game time. He should be ready to go this Sunday when the Eagles take on their division rival, the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Analysis: It's more than likely that Maclin will be active and starting on Sunday. With Nick Foles behind center, Maclin has been the team's most productive receiver.

His value is not what it once was at it's peak with Michael Vick, but he is still a relevant fantasy player. Maclin's advantage this weekend is that he's going against one of the league's worst pass defenses.
