2013 Outlook:  

Last updated on Jul-28-2013 by Ben Standig

Update (7/27): The Eagles confirmed Maclin tore the ACL in his right knee and will the miss the entire 2013 season. Never quite the fantasy producer everyone imagines - zero 1,000 yard seasons - but still a playmaker, not to mention Philly's most consistent wide receiver. Projected into WR3/4 range along with DeSean Jackson. Now Jackson is the only Eagles WR in that range. No Maclin means defenses can regularly keep a safety over the top on Jackson, as the expected drop-off to Jason Avant or Riley Cooper is significant. The mystery surrounding what the heck will happen with Chip Kelly's offense, now more mysterious.

Profile - The fantasy community for the most part is still monitoring the Eagles' new look under Chip Kelly for any clues about future results. That explains why Maclin and DeSean Jackson are seeing their ADPs drop compared to where they would have been picked previously. In the case of the up-and-down Jackson, that seems fair. As for Maclin, he's the steadier of the two and the more accomplished play-in, play-out receiver. He's also never had a 1,000 yard season as a receiver, though he's averaged at least seven touchdowns over his last three years. Also worth noting with Maclin is that we can (for now anyway) play the "hey, he's a free agent, so you know he'll play better" card. The term risk has been used often with the Philadelphia players; Maclin is no exception and yet he's a rather safe bet to post numbers in the low-WR2 to WR3 stud range.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
6.12 FFToolbox - Jeb Gorham - Last season Maclin was a 4th/5th round draft pick. Getting him late in the 6th this season seemed solid and I think he will have a better go this season.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
7.03 Gridiron Experts - Still trying to salvage any receivers I can get. The Eagles are a bit of an enigma this year- we all expect Chip Kelly's squad to put up big numbers, but we don't know how they'll do it. If Kelly can get Michael Vick or Nick Foles up around 20+ passing touchdowns, Maclin is a good bet to catch eight or more.

8.07 DynastyLeague Football - This came down to Maclin or Michael Floyd and chose Maclin because I thought Floyd would last until my next pick. He didn't, he went with the pick right after mine.
