Jeremy Maclin secured four-of-five targets for 40 yards Sunday in the Chiefs' Week 7 win over the Saints.
Blessed by the fantasy gods with another sublime matchup (he faced the Raiders’ league-worst pass defense a week earlier), Maclin predictably fell flat. He snoozed through the first half, hauling in just one of two targets for eight yards. He was marginally more involved in the second half but mostly took a backseat to Spencer Ware, who enjoyed another brilliant game out of the Chiefs’ backfield. He did tip away an onside kick late in the fourth quarter, but obviously that didn’t show up on the stat sheet. Even in a decent matchup against the Colts in Week 8, it’s hard to trust Maclin as anything more than a hit-or-miss WR3. Oct 23 - 5:00 PM

Jeremy Maclin caught 3-of-3 targets for 49 yards in the Chiefs' Week 6 win over the Raiders.

His 49 yards led the team. Alex Smith spread the ball around so much that the Chiefs' leader in targets was Chris Conley with four. Maclin has yet to top 78 yards in a game this season and is becoming more of a low-upside WR3 in the Chiefs' run-heavy offense that features the running backs near the end zone. Maclin is on pace for just four touchdowns this year.

Jeremy Maclin caught 5-of-8 targets for 78 yards in Week 4 against the Steelers.

Maclin did all his damage in the second half with Kansas City playing from behind. He had a drop and struggled to create separation despite a plus matchup. Maclin hasn't scored a touchdown in three straight weeks. He's on pace for just 80 catches, 976 yards, and four touchdowns.
Oct 3 - 12:45 AM

Jeremy Maclin caught 4-of-7 targets for 35 yards in the Chiefs' Week 3 win over the Jets.

Maclin and the entire passing game was allowed to rest on their laurels with the Jets spinning their wheels in the second half, but Maclin missed a couple opportunities before the break to have a much bigger game. He had a long pass down the right sideline bounce off his shoulder pads, and he failed to get his head around on another long pass down the seam on the next play. Either play would have made his line look a lot better. Despite the mediocre day, Maclin is as solid a WR2 as there is in the game. He should be starting in most leagues against the Steelers next Sunday night.

Jeremy Maclin hauled in just 6-of-15 targets for 68 yards Week 2 against the Texans.

Maclin did have a bad drop early, but most of his struggles can be laid at the feet of Alex Smith. Smith was erratic with his accuracy most of the day, and as a result, Maclin was not able to haul in any of his first five targets. He did save his fantasy day with three catches on the final drive, but it was a poor showing overall. He should have more luck against the Jets next week.
Sep 18 - 7:28 PM

Jeremy Maclin (not injury-related) returned to practice Friday.

He's good to go for Week 2 against the Texans as a WR3. The Texans mostly held Maclin in check both meetings last season, limiting him to receiving lines of 5-52-0 and 3-29-0. Maclin should still see 7-9 targets.
Sep 16 - 1:03 PM

Jeremy Maclin's missed Thursday practice was not injury-related.

Even if Maclin doesn't practice Friday, he'll be playing on Sunday. Maclin is shaping up as a lower-end WR2 against the Texans.
Sep 15 - 5:21 PM

Jeremy Maclin was absent from Thursday's practice.

It appears it was just a day of rest, but we might not get official word until the Chiefs' injury comes out. For now, owners can keep Maclin locked into their lineups.
Sep 15 - 2:41 PM

Jeremy Maclin tallied five catches for 63 yards and a touchdown on seven targets Sunday in the Chiefs’ come-from-behind victory over the Chargers in Week 1.

He lost a yard on his only rushing attempt. Maclin was held in check for most of the first half but came alive after halftime with three catches for 51 yards and a touchdown. He played Jason Verrett to a draw with Verrett picking his pocket on a fourth-quarter interception but Maclin getting him back on the following drive with a 19-yard touchdown. Maclin exited briefly after taking a monster hit on a 22-yard reception late in the second half but was cleared of a concussion and returned for overtime. He’ll be on the W2 spectrum next week against the Texans.
Sep 11 - 5:32 PM

Jeremy Maclin caught 5-of-7 targets for 44 yards Saturday against the Bears.

Maclin consistently got open underneath the coverage and did well fighting for first downs after the catch. He also saw two targets in the red zone, getting tackled at the one-yard line late in the second quarter. Unlikely to play in the fourth game, Maclin finishes the preseason with nine catches for 112 yards and a score. He is a solid WR2.
Aug 27 - 3:18 PM

Jeremy Maclin caught 2-of-3 targets for 23 yards in the Chiefs' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

Playing through a high-ankle sprain, Maclin "started," playing the Chiefs' first snap, but was clearly a shell of his usual self. He was absent for the vast majority of the second half. It was a disappointing end to an otherwise excellent first year in Kansas City. The No. 1 receiver the Chiefs desperately needed, Maclin caught 87 passes for 1,088 yards and eight touchdowns across 15 games. He's now found the end zone at least seven times in three straight campaigns. Still only 28 (in May), Maclin will be back as Alex Smith's No. 1 wideout, and serve as a strong WR2 in fantasy.
Jan 16 - 8:03 PM

Jeremy Maclin (ankle) is active for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Patriots.

Maclin will play, but isn't close to fully healthy. He might not be more than a decoy after being held out of practice all week. Spencer Ware (ankle) is also active. Kansas City's inactives are QB Aaron Murray, CB Marcus Cooper, LB Ramik Wilson, OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, DL David King, and DL Rakeem Nunez-Roches.
Jan 16 - 3:04 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jeremy Maclin (ankle, questionable) was struggling to walk early in the week.

NFL Network's Jeff Darlington reported Maclin is facing an "uphill battle" to play Saturday. Even if he suits up, Maclin is unlikely to be anything more than a decoy. Chris Conley is an interesting dart throw on a short slate.

NFL Network's Jeff Darlington reports Jeremy Maclin (ankle, questionable) is facing an "uphill battle" to play Saturday.

Maclin suffered a "mild" high-ankle sprain in the Wild Card win but did not practice at all this week. He was never likely to play, and even if he is "active" he will be nothing more than a decoy. Athletic rookie Chris Conley should see a bump in snaps with Maclin sidelined.
Jan 16 - 9:17 AM

Jeremy Maclin (ankle) missed practice again Friday and is questionable for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Patriots.

If we were to guess, we'd say Maclin is more on the side of doubtful after not practicing at all this week. If the game were on Sunday, Maclin might have a better chance to play, but even then that would be pushing it. Albert Wilson and Chris Conley will handle receiver duties if Maclin can't play. Ultimately, expect Maclin to be a game-time decision in Foxboro.
