Jeremy Maclin WR PHI 5 Hrs
Maclin had four receptions for 62 yards in Saturday's loss to Washington.
After averaging 99 receiving yards and scoring eight touchdowns in eight games started by Nick Foles, Maclin has averaged just 68 yards and scored twice in seven games with Mark Sanchez at the helm. Despite going to the air 50 times Saturday, Sanchez seemed reluctant to take any shots down the field with Maclin, instead throwing to tight end Zack Ertz a whopping 18 times, mostly on short and intermediate routes. Temper your expectations for Maclin next week against the Giants if Sanchez starts again.

Maclin caught 4-of-6 passes for 98 yards in Sunday's 38-27 loss to the Cowboys.
While the Philadelphia passing game never got going, Maclin turned an intermediate route into a 72-yard gain to salvage a respectable statistical outing for himself. He came up just a yard shy of the end zone on the play, setting up a short touchdown for running back Chris Polk. Maclin draws a favorable matchup with the Redskins in Week 16, and there's some chance Nick Foles will return for the game. Given how poorly Sanchez has played the past two weeks, Foles' return would be a welcome sight for Maclin's owners.

Maclin scored a short touchdown in the first quarter, but was held in check from that point. The entire Eagles' offense struggled though, and possessed the ball for only 18 minutes. Maclin will look to rebound against the Cowboys next week.

Maclin caught eight passes for 108 yards in Thursday's victory over the Cowboys.
Most of Maclin's yardage came on a 58-yard reception, but he still reached the century mark for the first time since Week 9. He is just 20 yards away from his first career 1,000-yard season, but he will find yards hard to come by next week against a Seahawks defense that gives up just over 200 passing yards per game.

Maclin hauled in 6-of-8 targets for 59 yards in Sunday's 43-24 win over the Titans.
Maclin tied rookie Jordan Matthews for the most receptions and targets on the team Sunday, although Matthews had 18 more yards. The veteran wideout hasn't been as dominant with Mark Sanchez as the starting QB over the last three games, although he's still managed to catch 18-of-26 targets for 190 yards and a touchdown during that span. In Week 13, Maclin will face a solid Cowboys' pass defense on Thanksgiving Day.

Maclin caught 9-of-10 targets for 93 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 53-20 loss at Green Bay.
Maclin was held in check in the first half, but was able to post strong numbers in garbage time, including a 20-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter. It was Maclin's second game with Mark Sanchez serving as Philadelphia's starting QB, and the results were better than last Monday, when he caught just 3-of-7 targets for 38 yards. The veteran wideout should continue to post great numbers, just keep in mind that Sanchez has a good rapport with rookie Jordan Matthews, who posted his second straight game of 100+ yards and a touchdown. Next week, Maclin will face a beatable Titans' secondary.

Maclin caught 3-of-7 targets for 38 yards in Monday's 45-21 win over the Panthers.
Rookie Jordan Matthews did the heavy lifting in Mark Sanchez's first start, with a 7-138-2 receiving line on nine targets. While Matthews and Sanchez do seem to have good chemistry, Maclin still figures to see plenty of targets, in an up-tempo offense that isn't asking much of Riley Cooper as a receiver.

Maclin had six catches on seven targets for 158 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Texans.
Maclin has two straight huge games after catching 12 passes on 16 targets for 187 yards and two touchdowns last Sunday against the Cardinals. He opened the scoring against the Texans by catching a 59-yard touchdown from quarterback Nick Foles, who was knocked out of the game late in the first quarter due to a shoulder injury, with backup Mark Sanchez taking over in the second. Maclin caught a 52-yard pass on Sanchez's first attempt, then put a stamp on his excellent fantasy day by catching an eight-yard touchdown from Sanchez in the fourth quarter. Head coach Chip Kelly confirmed after the game that Foles' arm was in a sling, opening up the probability that Sanchez will start in Week 10 against the Panthers, but after the way he threw the ball to Maclin on Sunday, the wideout doesn't figure to have a big downgrade in value.

Maclin had a huge game in Sunday's loss at Arizona, catching 12-of-16 targets for a season-high 187 yards and two touchdowns.
Maclin briefly left the game with a potential concussion, but it did not prevent him from posting his best game of the season. He has been a target monster this season, seeing at least 10 looks in six of seven games. Considering that Maclin is coming off a torn ACL, it's been an impressive campaign thus far for him. It's possible that Maclin's stats would be even better, if not for the inconsistency of Nick Foles, who has been erratic at times in his first full year as Philadelphia's quarterback. Then again, Foles has a strong arm and is capable of extending plays in the pocket, allowing Maclin to roam free in the secondary. In any event, Maclin should continue to be the primary weapon in the team's passing game, and will look to stay on a roll next week against the Texans.
