Jeremy Maclin – WR
Projection: 6 Catches for 60+ yards and 1 TD
It has been a rough season for Kansas City Chiefs receiver Jeremy Maclin and his Fantasy Football owners. The Chiefs top receiver has struggled with a groin injury for much of the year, and has also seen his work load and production drop. All in all, it’s hard to not be disappointed in the year that Maclin has had. However, I think he is going to go out on a high note.
Jeremy Maclin was reportedly “visibly upset” with his lack of targets last week. There are few players on this team with enough pull to take a complaint to Andy Reid, but Maclin is certainly one of them. Given that Maclin had a strong performance against the Chargers in Week 1, I think Andy Reid is going to be more than willing to give his star receiver a few more looks this week.
It has been a rough season for Jeremy Maclin, but don’t give up on him. He has shown that he does still have the ability to make things happen. I like him a lot as a cheap third receiver option or FLEX player this week, especially in DFS leagues. The Chiefs still have something to play for this week, and they will certainly want Maclin to have some momentum heading into the playoffs.
