Jeremy Maclin missed another practice with a hip pointer and his status for week 2 remains in doubt. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin missed practice on Wednesday with a hip pointer suffered in week 1 and his status for this week's game against the Ravens is in doubt. Maclin had a big opening week by catching 7 passes for 96 yards and a touchdown against the Browns, but we'll have to keep an eye on his status for week 2. Wide receiver Riley Cooper returned to practice for the first time since a broken collarbone on July 28th, but will not play this week.

Fantasy Analysis: Losing Maclin would be a big blow to a team thin on wide receiver depth, especially against a Ravens team that held the Bengals to 193 yards in week 1. Even if he is able to return, he could be a risky play with a sore hip against a tough defense.
