Jeremy Maclin (groin) was removed from the Week 14 injury report and will play Thursday night against the Raiders.
It's unclear what kind of role Maclin will have after missing four weeks, but there's been no indication he'll be on any sort of snap count. Look for Maclin to see his customary 5-8 targets, which takes some air out of the balloon for Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill. Treat Maclin as a WR4 coming off a long layoff. Dec 7 - 3:34 PM

Date:

Jeremy Maclin (groin) will be a full participant at Tuesday's practice.

It puts Maclin on track to suit up Thursday night against Oakland. He'll be returning from a four-game absence. With Travis Kelce emerging as Alex Smith's go-to target and rookie Tyreek Hill also showing promise, Maclin won't be more than a WR4 this week and going forward.
Dec 6 - 12:57 PM

ESPN's Bob Holtzman reports Jeremy Maclin (groin) "should play" Thursday night against the Raiders.

Holtzman added the caveat of "if all goes well" in practice this week. Maclin has been out since Week 9 with a groin injury. Even if he returns Thursday night, there is a decent chance he will be limited. Even in a good matchup, Maclin is nothing more than a WR4.

Jeremy Maclin (groin) got in a limited practice Monday.

Indications earlier Monday suggested Maclin will return to the lineup Thursday night against the Raiders. While he's nothing more than a WR4, Maclin also figures to affect the production of Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill.
Dec 5 - 8:09 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Chiefs are "optimistic" Jeremy Maclin (groin) will return from his four-game absence on Thursday Night Football.

Speaking Monday, coach Andy Reid claimed ignorance on Maclin's status, but this is a pretty strong indication he will finally return. Travis Kelce has emerged as the Chiefs' No. 1 receiver in Maclin's absence, and been a much more dangerous weapon than Maclin was before going down. Maclin's return could still curb Kelce's upside, but we wouldn't consider Maclin more than a WR4 against the Raiders.
Dec 5 - 2:21 PM

Speaking Monday, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said "I don't know" when asked about Jeremy Maclin's (groin) Week 14 availability.

"He's making improvement," was Reid's unhelpful addendum. Despite getting in three limited practices, Maclin didn't seem particularly close to returning on Sunday. There's a pretty strong chance he won't suddenly be cleared in three days time for Thursday Night Football. Even if Maclin does play, his usual complement of snaps is unlikely. Struggling even before he was injured, Maclin has faded to WR4 status.
Dec 5 - 1:21 PM

Jeremy Maclin (groin) was downgraded to out for Week 13 against the Falcons.

Maclin appeared on track to return after practicing on a limited basis all week and being listed as questionable on Friday. He was clearly not ready to go coming out of a long injury layoff, however, and did not even make the trip to Atlanta. With Maclin out, Tyreek Hill should once again serve as the No. 1 receiver in a great matchup. He is a WR3 with a ton of upside.
Dec 3 - 11:35 AM

Jeremy Maclin (groin) is questionable for Week 13 against the Falcons.

Maclin put in a limited week of practice and should be good to go after sitting out the last three games with a groin injury. His return puts a damper on Tyreek Hill, who absolutely crushed it during Maclin's absence. Maclin was struggling before his injury and won't be anything more than a back-end WR3 this week.
Dec 2 - 3:17 PM

Jeremy Maclin (groin) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

Despite the practices, Maclin's status remains unclear. There haven't been any useful reports or updates from the team. Maclin hasn't played since Week 9. His absence is unusually long for a groin injury, and more common of someone recovering from a sports-hernia operation. There's been zero indication that's what Maclin is dealing with, however. If Maclin suits up against the Falcons, he won't be a recommended WR3.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: It still appears that Maclin is on the outside looking in as far as his status for Sunday goes. That's great news for Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill, both of whom will be recommended DFS targets assuming Maclin sits. Hill is coming off of a 10-target game where he scored TDs in three different ways, so he remains a strong upside play. As for Kelce, he'll take on a Falcons defense that has allowed the 3rd most FPPG to TEs.
Dec 1 - 5:19 PM

Jeremy Maclin (groin) returned to practice Wednesday.

It's his first practice since injuring his groin two snaps into Week 9. Maclin has missed the past three games. In that time, Tyreek Hill has taken off as the Chiefs' biggest playmaker, while Travis Kelce is No. 1 in targets among tight ends. Maclin's return will certainly be a hit to both Hill and Kelce in an offense that can't support many skill players. Maclin is no guarantee to play Week 13.

Jeremy Maclin (groin) is out for Week 12 against the Broncos.

Maclin hasn't practiced since injuring his groin on the second play of Week 9. He remains without a timetable. Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce have drawn the most targets in Maclin's absence. The Chiefs have a tough slate on the road versus Denver this week.
Nov 25 - 3:55 PM

Jeremy Maclin (groin) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

As far as we know, Maclin has made no progress since aggravating a groin injury in Week 9. He's likely headed for his third straight absence. Tyreek Hill, Chris Conley and Albert Wilson will be the featured receivers Sunday night in Denver. Tight end Travis Kelce should also play a big role in the passing game. Maclin remains week to week.
Nov 25 - 2:51 PM

Jeremy Maclin (groin) did not practice Thursday.

It looks like he is going to miss his third game in a row. Tyreek Hill, Albert Wilson, and Chris Conley should once again start with Maclin out, but none of them are viable fantasy options in Denver. Travis Kelce is the only startable member of the Chiefs' passing game.
Nov 24 - 11:29 AM

Jeremy Maclin (groin) is not practicing Wednesday.

Charcandrick West (concussion) is also sidelined. Maclin hasn't practiced since getting hurt two snaps into Week 9. His week is off on the wrong foot, and it doesn't sound like he's any closer to a return. Even if he sits against the Broncos, Tyreek Hill, Albert Wilson, and Chris Conley aren't very attractive fantasy plays in a tough matchup. Travis Kelce would remain a TE1.
Nov 23 - 12:53 PM

Jeremy Maclin (groin) is out for Week 11 against the Buccaneers.

Maclin didn't practice this week and was always a long shot to play. This will be his second straight absence. Tyreek Hill drew a career-high 13 targets with Maclin sidelined last week and should be in for another heavy workload on Sunday. Maclin is week to week.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Maclin out of action in Week 11, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce both become more intriguing DFS targets. The low-volume nature of Kansas City's passing attack does make them both risky cash game plays, but each has considerable GPP upside given their price tags. Hill has moved around formations plenty so it's tough to peg his CB match-up, but Brent Grimes - who stays at LCB almost exclusively - would be the only tough potential draw. Kelce has thrown up back-to-back duds, but remains on the GPP radar.
