The Philadelphia Eagles are expecting to have wide receiver Jeremy Maclin back this week, coach Andy Reid said on Monday. Maclin has been bothered by a hip injury that forced him to miss Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. The Eagles play the New York Giants on Sunday night.
Fantasy Impact: The Eagles (and fantasy owners) missed Maclin on Sunday. Michael Vick led the team to just two field goals on offense and Damaris Johnson led the team in receiving with 84 yards on five catches. Maclin has been improving and it should also help Vick's fantasy value if Maclin does return this week.
