Maclin is already dealing with soreness in his surgically repaired knee (ACL), which does not bold well for his durability this season. Fantasy fans should expect him to miss a couple games again this season.

While Maclin has yet to crack 1,000 yards in his NFL career, he has still racked up over 800 yards in his last three seasons. He will be a safe bet to do it again in 2014.

Philly doesn’t have many experienced wideouts on the outside following the loss of DeSean Jackson. Maclin will be looked for often and will have no problem hauling in between 6-8 touchdowns.
