DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin are both expected to play on Sunday in spite of injury concerns. We break down the fantasy implications.
The Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting that Eagles wide receivers Jeremy Maclin (hip) and DeSean Jackson (hamstring) are both likely to play on Sunday. Both receivers were limited in practice on Friday, but team sources indicated to the Inquirer that both were expected to be cleared to play, barring any unforeseen setbacks.
Fantasy Impact: Most people were expecting the receivers to play on Sunday, but both are still relatively risky plays against the Baltimore Ravens defense. At the same time, they are generally worth starting in most formats. Jackson appears to be gaining some particular value in PPR leagues and might be the safer of the two this week.
