Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game with the Arizona Cardinals. We break down the fantasy implications.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Maclin on Friday did not have on a shell or a helmet during the part of practice open to the media. He has been bothered by a hip injury.
Fantasy Impact: There had been speculation that Maclin wouldn't play, so at least fantasy owners won't have to worry about this right up until kickoff. Fantasy owners will now have time to figure out a different option if they had been hoping to use Maclin. His absence should boost the value of DeSean Jackson and tight end Brent Celek.
