by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (9/16/14) Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin scored for the second straight week, catching a 6-yard touchdown from Nick Foles with 3:25 left in Philly's 30-27 win Monday night. Maclin finished with four catches for 45 yards despite being targeted a team-high 11 times.
Maclin could have had a huge night if Foles had been sharper. Foles missed him at least three times, including one overthrow in the end zone.
Still, Maclin has 21 targets and two touchdowns entering Week 3 vs. Washington.
Busted coverage breaks game open for Jeremy Maclin
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer (9/7/14) Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin had a pretty disappointing game statistically on Sunday, catching three passes for 29 yards when he got open past all 11 Jaguars defenders and caught a Nick Foles bomb for an easy 68-yard touchdown to help seal the win. Maclin finished with 97 yards and the score on four catches (on a team-high 10 targets).
Maclin and the Eagles will play at the Colts in Week 2.
Jeremy Maclin a promising Fantasy play against Jaguars
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com (9/4/14) Despite greater defensive attention that comes with the departure of fellow standout receiver DeSean Jackson, Eagles new featured wideout Jeremy Maclin should benefit starting with a matchup Sunday against vulnerable Jacksonville.
Maclin should not only gain targets from potentially explosive quarterback Nick Foles, but he could take advantage of a weak and comparatively inexperienced Jaguars secondary that allowed 19 touchdowns to receivers in 2013.
The sixth-year receiver who lost last year to a torn ACL should thrive outside or in the slot, where he has seen extensive action in the preseason. He proved steady and productive from 2009 to 2012, averaging 65 catches, 838 yards and seven touchdowns per season for the Eagles during that stretch. He could be in line for his first 1,000-yard campaign.
Maclin is no first Fantasy option, but he could end up being one sometime this season and is certainly a strong No. 2, even in shallower leagues. CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writer Jamey Eisenberg has him ranked 18th among all wide receiver possibilities in Week 1, though colleague Dave Richard is far less optimistic, placing him 31st.

Jeremy Maclin is coming back from a torn ACL, which kept him out of the 2013 season. He will be returning to a new offense under coach Chip Kelly, a new quarterback in Nick Foles and playing without DeSean Jackson, who is now with the Redskins. We expect Maclin to assume the No. 1 receiver role for the Eagles, and he’s a sleeper this season. He won’t replace Jackson as the deep threat in Philadelphia, but he could catch 80 passes with 1,000 yards and seven-plus touchdowns. Maclin should be considered a No. 3 Fantasy receiver coming into the year, and he’s worth drafting with a late-round pick. Let someone else reach for Riley Cooper ahead of Maclin, but Maclin is the Eagles receiver to target this season with Jackson gone.
