Jeremy Maclin admits his 2016 "wasn’t up to my standards."
"I just … I didn’t play as well as I could have," Maclin said, admitting the obvious. "And by not playing well, I feel like I let my team down. And that’s the most important part of it." Maclin was slowed by a groin injury for much of the season. Still only 29, there's no reason Maclin can't physically bounce back, though Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill will be major stumbling blocks on the way to a 1,000-yard campaign. Maclin is best treated as a WR4/5 in fantasy. May 23 - 7:37 PM

Jeremy Maclin caught 2-of-4 targets for 28 yards in the Chiefs' Divisional Round loss to the Steelers.

His biggest catch was a 20-yard grab on the right sideline right at the first-down marker on a 3rd-and-20 play following a Travis Kelce personal foul penalty. It set up a Cairo Santos field goal. Maclin had a really rough second season in Kansas City. He missed four games with a groin injury and never caught more than six passes in a game. He answered a 92-1,140-8 season last year with a meager 46-564-2 campaign in 2016. He took a back seat to Travis Kelce, who became the Chiefs' No. 1 option. And rookie Tyreek Hill was schemed the ball multiple ways, which also played a role in Maclin's down numbers. Maclin turns 29 in May and has three years left on his deal. He's more of a WR3/4 as long as Alex Smith is the quarterback.

Jeremy Maclin caught 4-of-5 targets for 53 yards Week 17 against the Chargers.

Maclin gave the Chiefs a scare when he briefly left with an ankle injury in the third quarter, but he finished out the game. Maclin ends the regular season with just 536 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games, but he will have a chance to get close to full health over the bye week, which is something he has not been much of the year.
Jan 1 - 8:35 PM

Jeremy Maclin caught 3-of-4 targets for nine yards in the Chiefs' Week 16 win over the Broncos.

As expected, Maclin was unable to get anything going against the Broncos' elite cornerbacks. After leading the Chiefs in targets, catches, and yards in Week 15, Maclin took a back seat to Travis Kelce in this one. Maclin will look to bounce back in the regular season finale against the Chargers as a WR3.

Jeremy Maclin caught 6-of-7 targets for 82 yards in the Chiefs' Week 15 loss to the Titans.

Maclin returned from his long layoff with a groin injury last week against the Raiders only to catch one pass for 16 yards. But after the 10-day layoff, Maclin looked much more like himself in this one. His seven targets, catches, and yards all led the team on a day Alex Smith threw for just 163 yards. Maclin was the intended target on Smith's back-breaking fourth-quarter interception in the end zone, which paved the way for a Titans comeback win. Maclin will be a borderline WR3/4 next week in a tough home game against the Broncos on Christmas Night.

Jeremy Maclin caught 1-of-3 targets for 16 yards in the Chiefs' Week 14 win over the Raiders.

Maclin was invisible as Alex Smith shredded the Raiders in the first half, and even more invisible as Smith struggled in the second. Pro Football Focus charted him as playing 42-of-55 snaps, so it wasn't a playing-time issue. Maclin has legitimately struggled this year. He'll be a low-upside WR4 in Week 15 against the Titans. Travis Kelce is the Chiefs' new No. 1 receiver.

Jeremy Maclin (groin) is active for Week 14 against the Raiders.

Maclin is finally ready to go after missing four games. With Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce both cooking, Maclin is hard to trust as more than a low-end WR4 as he knocks the rust off. Inactive for the Chiefs are QB Tyler Bray, CB D.J. White, CB Kenneth Acker, RB Knile Davis, LB Dadi Nicolas, OL Mike Person and TE Ross Travis.

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.

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.
Tue, Dec 6, 2016 12:57:00 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.

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.

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.
Mon, Dec 5, 2016 01:21:00 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.

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.
