Jeremy Maclin is out. We break down the fantasy implications.
Analysis: It's a big blow for both the Eagles and fantasy owners alike. Maclin aggravated the injury while throwing a block, and he is shooting for a Week 4 return. If you're a Maclin owner, trying to trade him is not an option with his value being so low. On the other hand, if you dont own him, it's a good idea to see how low his owner might be willing to sell. Maclin owners in deeper leagues could use Damaris Johnson as a stop-gap, but he's nothing more than a desperate WR4 or low-end flex in PPR leagues.
