Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin says he's close to being 100 percent after missing last week's game because of a hip injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jeremy Maclin has told reporters that he's close to full strength and should be ready to play against the New York Giants this weekend. Maclin missed last weekend's game against the Arizona Cardinals because of a hip injury after scoring touchdowns in the first two games of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Maclin's return would certainly add some balance to Philadelphia's passing game, which struggled against Arizona in Week 3. The Giants have had some injuries at defensive back but Maclin probably isn't yet ready to turn in a huge fantasy performance. Owners should treat him as a good No. 3 fantasy receiver this week against New York. DeSean Jackson is probably the better fantasy start among Philadelphia's wideouts.
