WR Jeremy Maclin - Free Agent
|6-0, 198||Born: 5-11-1988||College: Missouri||Drafted: Round 1, pick 19 (2009)|
2017 Week 1 vs CIN (4 / 2 / 56 / 1 rec)
Jeremy Maclin made his first grab in the flat serving as a check down for Flacco and picked up 7 yards. Maclin ran a simple slant route and got a beautiful pick on Darqueze Dennard thanks to Ben Watson giving him room to run. Maclin capitalized and took the slant 48 yards for a touchdown showing off his impressive speed. Maclin drew a pass interference flag running a curl route. Maclin slipped and fell at the Bengals 5 yard line running a slant route.
2017 Week 2 vs CLE (5 / 4 / 31 / 1 rec)
Jeremy Maclin is Joe Flacco's preferred target in the short to intermediate passing game. Maclin beat Jamar Taylor with a nice release running a seam route and Flacco hit him in stride for 19 yards. Maclin left the game with a shoulder stinger after the play but returned to the game. Maclin ran a quick out route and created just enough separation to secure a 2 yard touchdown reception. Maclin picked up 9 yards running an out route beating Taylor again.
2017 Week 3 vs JAX (5 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin saw his first two targets fall incomplete. The first was an underneath target denied by Paul Posluszny and the second target was too thrown too high down the seam and skipped off Maclin's hands. Maclin's third target was intercepted as he tried to haul in a back shoulder catch down the sideline. AJ Bouye made a great play ripping the ball from Maclin's hands and securing the interception. Maclin had a 21 yard reception negated by an offensive pass interference penalty. Maclin caught a pass running a shallow cross for 8 yards.
2017 Week 4 vs PIT (6 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin did not see any downfield targets against the Steelers. Maclin saw his first two underneath targets fall incomplete thanks to poor throws from Flacco. Maclin caught his first pass in the flat for 3 yards. Maclin caught a pass running an out route for 11 yards. Maclin caught a pass underneath and ducked out of bounds after an 8 yard gain.
2017 Week 5 vs OAK (8 / 6 / 43 / 0 rec)

Flacco narrowly missed Maclin down the seam for a potential 20 yard play. Maclin was targeted in the end zone but Nelson disrupted the play. Maclin picked up 8 more yards and a first down running another out route. Maclin's stat line was less than impressive but a couple of missed opportunities hurt his production.
2017 Week 8 vs MIA (5 / 3 / 53 / 1 rec)
Maclin made his first catch running a curl route from the slot for 6 yards. Maclin beat his man down the sideline running a go route and hauled in a perfect throw from Flacco for a 34 yard touchdown. Maclin picked up 13 yards running a slant across the middle of the field. Maclin's two targets from Mallett were catchable passes but both would have been difficult catches.
2017 Week 9 vs TEN (9 / 8 / 98 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin had his best game of the season and showed chemistry with Joe Flacco. Maclin found a hole in zone coverage and got up field after making the catch for 19 yards and a key third down conversion. Maclin went up high a few plays later to haul in a 15 yard catch in front of a linebacker. Maclin picked up 10 yards running a slant against off coverage. Maclin gained 11 yards again beating his man inside on a slant. Maclin worked to get open as the play broke down and went low to secure a 17 yard catch. Maclin made a 15 yard catch between two Titans defenders.
2017 Week 11 vs GB (5 / 4 / 34 / 0 rec)

Maclin ran a curl route and eluded two defenders getting up field for 14 yards. Maclin picked up 5 more yards running another curl.
2017 Week 12 vs HOU (5 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin saw three targets early in the game but was largely a non-factor in the game. Maclin slipped and fell on his first target running a quick out route. Maclin made his first catch in the flat on a check down from Flacco for 6 yards.
2017 Week 13 vs DET (8 / 4 / 41 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin dropped what would have been a 10 yard gain and 3rd down conversion on his first target. Maclin ran a shallow crossing route and picked up 10 yards to convert a 3rd and 6. Maclin ran a deep in route and secured a 17 yard catch despite absorbing a hit. Maclin dropped a slant and took a big hit over the middle. Maclin ran another slant and picked up 12 yards over the middle. Maclin drew a holding penalty on an end zone target with Darius Slay in coverage.
2017 Week 14 vs PIT (11 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin was horribly inefficient against the Steelers. Maclin was not on the same page as Flacco on a number of his targets. A few of his targets were passes that were thrown away but for the most part Flacco could not find Maclin open. Maclin made his first catch in the flat and was hit immediately for a 1 yard loss. Maclin made a 9 yard catch running a comeback route. Maclin picked up 19 yards running an in route.
2017 Week 15 vs CLE (1 / 1 / 22 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin made a 22 yard catch up the seam in front of safety Jabrill Peppers but absorbed a hit to his knee in the process and left the game. Maclin briefly returned but was forced to exit the game. Maclin finished the game with one catch.
2016 Week 1 vs SD (7 / 5 / 63 / 1 rec, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Maclin is the clear number one receiver for this team and showed it by reeling in 5 catches for 63 yards and a touchdown. Maclin is a quick hitting receiver that can take the top off a defense or run by you after catching that short screen. Maclin's 19-yard touchdown brought the Chiefs within 10 in the fourth quarter and was monumental in the comeback. There was one scary moment when Maclin left the game after taking a shot to the head, but he was able to return and did not show any concussion symptoms. With no clear number two receiver, Maclin figures to see the bulk of the targets going forward.
2016 Week 2 vs HOU (15 / 6 / 68 / 0 rec)
In what has become a nearly every week trend throughout Jeremy Maclin's tenure with the Chiefs, he led the team in catches, yards and targets. Maclin finished with six catches for 68 yards, but the bad news is that it took 16 targets for him to achieve those totals. Maclin was hamstrung by Smith's time to throw, as although he was targeted 16 times, roughly half of his incompletions (by my count) were off target and hardly catchable balls for Maclin. He continues to be a high volume target that should see his yardage and touchdown totals climb as the year goes on.
2016 Week 3 vs NYJ (7 / 4 / 35 / 0 rec)
Maclin was used mostly on very short passes and couldn't convert his two deep targets into catches because he didn't create separation. With the nature of the Chiefs offense, he is only going to be a good play when they face an opponent who scores enough to force them to open up the passing game.
2016 Week 4 vs PIT (8 / 5 / 78 / 0 rec)
Maclin was expected to be very busy on Sunday night, playing against a Steelers secondary that has allowed opposing #1 receivers to score 3.7 points above their average over the last year. Maclin responded with a solid, if unspectacular game, which is sort of how his season has gone through week four weeks. Maclin started off the game with a fifteen yard catch which seemed to be a sign off good things to come. He settled into a spot in the middle of the Steelers zone coverage, before turning the ball up-field and adding another seven yards after the catch. Maclin was very productive when given the opportunity, as all of his catches when for double digit yardage, finishing with receptions of 15, 20, 16, 13 and 14 yards, respectively. Maclin continues to be the most heavily targeted receiver in the Chiefs offense, but his week to week value is still at the mercy of whether or not he scores touchdowns.
2016 Week 6 vs OAK (3 / 3 / 49 / 0 rec)
In many fantasy circles, Maclin was being highly touted as a receiver with the chance to exceed value due to an advantageous matchup in a game that should see its fair share of points. Maclin has been consistent this year, but he has yet to have a monster game that separates him from other #3 wide receivers. That game did not come on Sunday, despite Maclin having a great matchup against a beatable cornerback in DJ Hayden. Maclin caught three passes for 49 yards on four targets, which was below his season averages of five catches for 61 yards on nine targets. As mentioned above, he was able to abuse Hayden when he tried to play press coverage on Maclin. Maclin beat him quite easily off the line of scrimmage and had a step on him down the right sideline where Smith hit him in perfect stride for a 38 yard gain. Had Maclin seen 10 targets, he very likely would have turned in a seven catch, 100 yard game with the good possibility of a touchdown scored. Maclin though, is a victim of circumstance and he is hamstrung by the fact that his offense is a low-risk ball control offense that does not take shots down the field. Even more troubling is Maclin came into the game catching only 54% of his passes, and this is due in large part to the type of routes that Maclin is being asked to run. No longer is he seeing high percentage targets on screens and digs, where he can create yards after the catch. He is running more routes toward the middle of the field, with slants and in-routes in the intermediate passing game being a high percentage of his targets. This is why despite leading the team in targets (40), Maclin has caught two fewer passes than Travis Kelce, who has seen eight fewer targets than Maclin.
2016 Week 7 vs NO (5 / 4 / 40 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin provided a safety blanket for his quarterback in a controlled performance from the Chiefs offense. The former Eagles player was unfortunate not to be the recipient of a deep touchdown pass down the seam on an early play. Maclin split two defenders, but Alex Smith's pass was tossed too far ahead of him. Maclin thrived on timing routes, running crisp patterns and stopping on a dime to give his quarterback a clear picture. He made a very acrobatic sliding catch on an errant pass in the second half, and bailed out his quarterback later with a twirling adjustment to an off-target pass on a slant route. Maclin was the engine of the passing offense.
2016 Week 8 vs IND (10 / 3 / 43 / 1 rec)
Maclin had a disappointing day, catching three of his 10 targets for 43 yards and a touchdown. It was the first touchdown for Maclin since week 1, but he was unable to turn his ten targets into meaningful fantasy production, further muddying the waters of his week to week value. Maclin converted his touchdown on a nice little pump fake route, where he took advantage of press coverage before catching a 13 yard pass from Alex Smith. Maclin continues to see a high volume of targets, but it is the quality of those targets that is hurting him. He is running more intermediate routes that are not taking advantage of his ability to generate yards after the catch. For the season, Maclin has only caught 30 of 55 targets, bringing his catch percentage down to a rather unpleasant 54%.
2016 Week 9 vs JAX (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Maclin came into the game nursing a hamstring injury, and it was not long before it proved to be too much for him to play. On Maclin's first target of the game in the first quarter, he went down low to catch the ball and although it did not look like he aggravated the injury, he left the game and would not return. He is listed as day to day and is questionable to play on Sunday.
2016 Week 15 vs TEN (8 / 6 / 82 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin finally looked healthy when he took the field this past Sunday against the Titans. He finished the game with six catches for 82 yards. Maclin managed to come down with a 44 yard catch where he did a great job of boxing out his defender and cutting off the ball to the inside and securing a 44 yard reception. Aside from that one play, Maclin did not make much of an impact, as he was targeted on slants and comeback routes where he was unable to generate any yards after the catch. This is consistent with the types of routes that Maclin was running during the first half of the season, and is a far cry from the ultra-productive receiver that Maclin has been in the past.
2016 Week 17 vs SD (5 / 4 / 53 / 0 rec)
Maclin continues to work himself back from a hamstring injury that cost him the better part of four games. Maclin caught four passes for 53 yards on six targets against the Chargers. It looks as though he is finally healthy, as he is starting to see more targets down the field, as opposed to strictly being involved in the short and intermediate passing game. One of these plays came on third and six from the Chargers 33 yard line. Smith took the snap out of shotgun formation before taking a quick three step drop. Maclin ran a straight go-route where he ran diagonally from the left slot position to the left sideline. Smith threw the ball to Maclin's back-shoulder and he was able to secure the catch for a 23 yard gain that nearly went for a touchdown.
2015 Week 1 vs HOU (9 / 5 / 52 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin made his much-anticipated debut as a member of the Chiefs on Sunday. He led all receivers in targets with nine on his way to a 5 catch, 52-yard performance. Maclin and Alex Smith connected for the first time on the opening drive, a short pass out of the shotgun that Maclin was able to extend for 9 yards before being pushed out of bounds. They connected again on the teams' second touchdown drive, a short pass that went for eight yards to bring the Chiefs across midfield. Two plays later, Smith was able to hit a wide open Travis Kelce for a 42-yard touchdown, the presence of Maclin undoubtedly contributing to the blown coverage on Kelce. Maclin's solid first game as a Chief could have been even better as a 39-yard reception was called back in the third quarter due to a Texans challenge on whether he had control or not. He was slightly banged up on the play but did not appear to suffer any lingering effects. All-in-all a solid debut for Maclin, he will fit in very nicely as the WR1 for the Chiefs.
2015 Week 2 vs DEN (7 / 4 / 57 / 0 rec, 2 / -5 / 0 rush)
Maclin's biggest play of the night may have come when he wasn't the target. He provided a key block for Jamaal Charles' 34-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Maclin was targeted a team-high seven times against the Broncos, catching four passes for 57 yards. He made some solid catches, including one for 30 yards, but the offense struggled as a whole as Alex Smith was under pressure throughout the game. The budding chemistry between the two is apparent and Smith continues to look for Maclin as the first option in the passing game, a trend that will continue throughout the season.
2015 Week 3 vs GB (11 / 8 / 141 / 1 rec)
Maclin was the invisible man in the first half but turned it on in the second for a productive evening. His lackluster first half included a bad drop on one of his few targets and a missed block that resulted in a stalled drive for the Chiefs. The second half presented a different story and Maclin made the most of his opportunities. He hauled in eight catches for 141 yards and a touchdown once he became a focal point of the offense. The touchdown pass was a five-yard strike from Alex Smith, the culmination of an 11-play, 80-yard drive in which Maclin snagged a ball for a key 31-yard gain to bring the team into the red zone.
2015 Week 4 vs CIN (13 / 11 / 148 / 0 rec)
Maclin caught 11 of his 13 targets en route to his second consecutive 100-yard receiving game, finishing the day with 148 yards. Although he didn't find the end zone for the second week in a row, he was able to recapture some of last week's second half chemistry with Alex Smith. The duo hooked up for their longest play of the day on the Chiefs second scoring drive, a short pass over the middle that Maclin was able to extend for 44 yards out of bounds. Smith looked Maclin's way again later in the drive. On 3rd and 7 from the 20, a short right pass was caught by Maclin but resulted in negative yardage and the team would settle for a field goal. Smith has been facing heavy pressure over the past two games, effecting both his timing and accuracy. If the team can solve that issue, Maclin's production would only get better from that point.
2015 Week 5 vs CHI (12 / 8 / 85 / 0 rec)
Maclin was again heavily targeted but his streak of 100-yard games came to an end as the Chiefs struggled to generate offense against the Bears on Sunday. He received 12 targets in total, catching eight of them for 85 yards with a long of 23 yards. Nearly half of Maclin's production came on the team's second offensive scoring drive. He was targeted four times and caught all four for a total of 37 yards. That drive ultimately resulted in a 32-yard field goal. Maclin's targets may actually increase going forward as offensive centerpiece Jamaal Charles went down with what is feared to be a season-ending right ACL tear. Maclin remains a huge threat because of his explosiveness and volume of targets, but he will receive extra attention from opposing defenses as he assumes the role of the Chiefs biggest offensive threat.
2015 Week 6 vs MIN (4 / 3 / 48 / 0 rec)
After two consecutive 100-yard receiving performances in Week's 3 and 4, Jeremy Maclin was held under 100 receiving yards for the second consecutive game. Maclin was held in check along with the rest of the Chiefs offense on Sunday, finishing the day with three catches on four targets for 48 yards. Even more concerning then the Chiefs offensive woes on Sunday was the concussion Maclin suffered in the fourth quarter. As he was attempting to catch a pass, Maclin was tackled cleanly by a Vikings defender but driven into the turf. It was an awkward sequence as the defender landed on top of Maclin and drove Maclin's head into the ground in the process. Maclin exited the game and did not return. There is no word on a timeframe but we would have to believe he'll be in the concussion protocol and the Chiefs will proceed cautiously.
2015 Week 8 vs DET (5 / 3 / 35 / 1 rec)
A quiet first half looked like it would lead to an unproductive fantasy day for Jeremy Maclin as the Chiefs were well on their way to blowing out the Lions, but he was able to salvage some value with a late score. He received a 17-yard strike from Alex Smith in the end zone to put the Chiefs up 38-3, a game they would ultimately win 45-10. For the day, Maclin was targeted five times and hauled in three of them for 35 yards. With a dominant rushing performance and a score that quickly got out of hand, he simply wasn't needed or targeted as much as he would be during the course of a normal game. Heading into the bye week, Maclin is still comfortably first on the Chiefs in targets with 61 ñ made more impressive by the fact that he missed last week's game while recovering from a concussion. He will continue to be highly targeted and the top receiving option for the Chiefs.
2015 Week 10 vs DEN (6 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec)
Maclin had a quiet day on Sunday as he was targeted only six times, hauling in six of them for 17 yards. With the Chiefs settling for five field goals on Sunday, perhaps some more targets for Maclin could be in order to open things up. Granted, the Chiefs dominated the game defensively. There wasn't much need for an aerial assault and the Broncos did their part to mitigate the damage. As Maclin has shown in Weeks 3 through 5 earlier this season, he can still produce and contribute solid PPR numbers when the game plan calls for his involvement.
2015 Week 11 vs SD (6 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin had another quiet outing despite being the second-most targeted receiver on Sunday. He hauled in three of his six targets for 29 yards, with a long of only 10 yards. The Chiefs were in full control of the game and received another stellar outing from the defensive unit, allowing the offense to remain in conservative, ball-control mode for the majority of the game. Maclin has produced when heavily-targeted this season, but the Chiefs have been pretty dominant defensively during their four-game winning streak, limiting the need for a huge performance from the passing game. He did see some duty on punt returns this week and returned two of them for a total of 13 yards.
2015 Week 12 vs BUF (11 / 9 / 160 / 1 rec)
Alex Smith was forced to take a few more deep shots than normal and Jeremy Maclin was the biggest beneficiary. The duo hooked for three big plays on the day, highlighted by a 41-yard touchdown late in the second quarter. Smith and Maclin would also hook up for gains of 37 and 32 yards as the Bills aggressive defense forced the Chiefs to air it out as opposed to their typical menu of short, efficient passes. In all, Maclin and Smith would connect nine times on 11 targets for 160 yards. Maclin averaged an impressive 17.8 yards per catch for the game, which is his highest single-game average as a Chief ñ topping Week 3's 17.6 YPC vs. the Packers. He remains the top receiving option for the Chiefs and showed two things on Sunday: 1. He can still produce when given the opportunity. 2. He can make opposing defenses pay when they choose to pressure the Chiefs into airing it out.
2015 Week 13 vs OAK (10 / 9 / 95 / 2 rec)
After a bit of a lull in the middle of the season, the duo of Alex Smith and Jeremy Maclin have become quite productive over the past two games. Over that span, the duo has connected 18 times for 255 yards and three scores, two of which came on Sunday against the Raiders. Both touchdowns were the direct result of Raiders turnovers leading to outstanding field position in the fourth quarter. Maclin would cap off both two-play drives with a trip to the end zone, first from two-yards out, followed by a 13-yard score to push the Chiefs lead to 26-20. Maclin's day was devoid of long gains as the Chiefs followed their familiar formula of short, efficient passes complemented by the running game and strong defensive play. He was targeted a team-high 10 times, hauling in nine of them for 95 yards. Maclin is firmly established as the team's top weapon in the passing attack and will continue to see a healthy amount of targets as the season winds down.
2015 Week 14 vs SD (9 / 6 / 68 / 0 rec, 1 / -2 / 0 rush)
Maclin was targeted a team-high nine times, but a wet and windy day limited his overall effectiveness. He hauled in six of them for 68 yards, his lowest output since Week 11 - also against the Chargers. Maclin was the intended target on the play which broke Alex Smith's streak of passes attempted without an interception. On first and ten from the Chargers 38-yard line, Smith attempted a deep pass into the end zone intended for Maclin which was picked off by the Chargers Jason Verrett. Maclin's longest play of the day would come just before half time, a deep right pass from Smith for a 21-yard gain. He remains the unquestioned top target for the chiefs as they continue their push for a playoff spot.
2015 Week 15 vs BAL (10 / 7 / 50 / 1 rec)
Jeremy Maclin was targeted a team-high 10 times on Sunday, but a conservative approach with a game that was well in hand limited his output. The Chiefs remained in control of the game from the opening bell, allowing them to stick to their preferred methods of short passes and a strong running game. Maclin would do his part to help the Chiefs maintain control of the game early in the second quarter when he hauled in a 13-yard touchdown pass from Alex Smith, putting the team ahead 21-7 at that point. He would haul in six more passes for short gains on the day. Maclin remains at the top of the charts for targets in Kansas City and can deliver a stellar fantasy return when the game plan calls for it.
2015 Week 16 vs CLE (7 / 5 / 49 / 1 rec)
Sunday started off promising for Jeremy Maclin and the Chiefs offense but ended with somewhat of a whimper. The opening drive of the game would see the Chiefs march down the field on an 11-play, 65-yard drive capped off with a 13-yard Maclin touchdown, courtesy of Alex Smith. Maclin would gain 25 of his 49 yards on the day in the opening drive, as the Chiefs offense would stagnate as the game moved along and only register 17 points on the day. Maclin's seven targets on the day were second on the team to Travis Kelce's eight. Despite the low output in Week 16, Maclin surpassed 1,000 yards for the year and will look to build on his 2015 total of 1,034 yards in the regular season finale against the Oakland Raiders.
2015 Week 17 vs OAK (4 / 3 / 54 / 1 rec, 1 / 18 / 0 rush)
Jeremy Maclin did his part to help the Chiefs put their first points of the day on the board as he delivered the final 37 yards of an eight-play, 80-yard, opening possession touchdown drive. He would haul in a 12-yard reception to bring the Chiefs to the Raiders 25-yard line, followed by a 25-yard catch-and-run touchdown on the next play. Those two plays accounted for the bulk of Maclin's production on Sunday as he would haul in only one more pass for a 17-yard gain the rest of the way. The Chiefs received a scare in the second half when Maclin took a hard fall and landed on his hip, but he was able to return after briefly exiting the game. There's no word on any injury concerns at this point and Maclin should be good to go for a first-round playoff date with the Houston Texans on Saturday.
2015 Week 18 vs HOU (4 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)
The Chiefs avoided disaster when Jeremy Maclin's exited Saturday's victory over the Texans due to injury, but face uncertainty on his availability for this week's game against the Patriots. Maclin awkwardly twisted his knee on a play in the third quarter and was visibly upset on the sideline before being carted off. An MRI on Sunday allayed the initial fears of a torn ACL, but Maclin is dealing with a dreaded high ankle sprain and at a minimum appears to be questionable for next week. As for Saturday's game itself, Maclin was mainly held in check by the Texans, but the Chiefs being firmly in control throughout the course of the game did not point to a need to air it out. Maclin's longest play of the day would come in the third quarter. On 1st and 10 from the Chiefs 22-yard line, Alex Smith connected with Maclin over the middle for a 16-yard gain. Maclin's injury occurred three plays later and the Chiefs would ultimately score a touchdown on the drive, courtesy of a nine-yard Alex Smith to Chris Conley hookup.
2015 Week 19 vs NE (3 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)
The status of Jeremy Maclin was one of the bigger topics around the league heading into the Divisional Round of the playoffs. A clearly hobbled Maclin was able to give it a go, but was understandably ineffective and mainly relegated to decoy status. He was able to haul in two of his three targets, the longest of which was a 12-yard gain in the third quarter. It was a disappointing end to the season for Maclin and the Chiefs, but the future looks bright in Kansas City. Maclin will enter the 2016 season as the unquestioned top target in the Chiefs passing attack.
2014 Week 1 vs JAX (10 / 4 / 97 / 1 rec)
Maclin missed his first target as he short armed a ball that was placed over the middle. Maclin had his first reception that was good for a first down on a 10 yard gain that he had to make sure to get the ball to the 1st down marker. Maclin had a couple of catched on the Eagles last drive before halftime as he reeled in a 7 yard pass and then an 11 yard grab for a first down. Maclin picked up a key first down on the opening drive of the second half for the Eagles and once again made sure to get the ball to the first down marker on an 8 yard gain. Maclin gave the Eagles a huge play with a wide open 68 yard touchdown where he showed his speed and simple just took off and went untouched to the endzone. It was a play that was similar to what the Eagles had with DeSean Jackson last year as the Eagles can utilize Maclin's speed to help create mismatches for the Eagles.
2014 Week 2 vs IND (11 / 4 / 45 / 1 rec)
Maclin had an early target on the third play from scrimmage for the Eagles that he took for a 15 yard gain off a screen pass to the left side of the field. On a third and goal Maclin missed a pass over the middle that was a few yards short of the goal line as he was feeling the pressure of the secondary barring down on him. Maclin short armed a ball coming out of the backfield on a decent throw from Foles. On the next drive Maclin had a first down catch in traffic for a 15 yard gain. On the same drive Foles targeted Maclin in the endzone on a 30 yard pass but ball was uncatchable for Maclin as it sailed over his head. Maclin missed a screen pass to the left side as the ball simple just bounced off of his hands. Foles took a shot to Maclin for a long throw where defender Greg Toler jumped in front of Maclin and took the ball away from him for the interception. Maclin picked up an easy 9 yard gain on a zone defensive play on a 3rd and 12 but could not find any room after the catch.
2014 Week 3 vs WAS (10 / 8 / 154 / 1 rec)
Maclin saw his big day start off with a big penalty as he took a quick screen pass for a potential 80 yard touchdown only to get it called back by an unnecessary block in the back by Jason Kelce downfield. On Maclin's next catch he only collected a 2 yard gain on a similar type of screen play to the right side of the field this time. Maclin found a way to get open and grabbed a 26 yard pass from Foles to help set up the Eagles end of the half touchdown. Maclin continued to play great in this fast paced Chip Kelly offense and found ways to get wide open and pick up a 16 yard gain. Maclin continued to have a connection with Foles and had a first down catch for 13 yards late in the third quarter. Maclin made a fantastic catch for 17 yards at the left of the field and then followed it up with a perfect 27 yard touchdown pass from Foles.
2014 Week 4 vs SF (16 / 5 / 68 / 0 rec)
Maclin got involved right from the first play of the game taking a 9 yard grab from Foles and fighting to try to pick up the first down. Maclin had to push the defender away on an under throw from Foles deep down the right side of the field. Maclin just missed on a pass deep down the middle from Foles but just missed catching the ball. Maclin came alive for the Eagles on their 90 yard drive where he picked up 3 first downs with catches of 11, 15 and 22 yards. The nicest catch of the game was Maclin's 22 yard grab that came on 3rd and 14 on a one handed diving grab that the 49ers had to review but it was clearly a catch as Maclin secured the ball into his body before hitting the ground.
2014 Week 5 vs STL (11 / 5 / 76 / 1 rec)
Maclin saw his first action on the Eagles second drive with back to back targets from Foles. He caught the first one for a modest 5 yard gain and on the second the pass came in tight coverage and was broken up by the Rams defender. Foles found Maclin from the endzone for a 23 yard gain helping to give the Eagles some room on offense. Maclin showed some good speed on a quick pass that he raced down the field for a 19 yard gain. Maclin had a 24 yard touchdown pass from Foles as he caught the ball wide open in the endzone for the score.
2014 Week 6 vs NYG (3 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
Maclin picked up a first down with his first catch of 9 yards. Maclin had another grab later in the game for 7 yards and really he wasn't looked upon often as the Eagles were focused more on a running game and a game when they did throw they were going to their TE's.
2014 Week 8 vs ARI (16 / 12 / 187 / 2 rec)
Maclin picked up a quick 12 yard gain on a 2nd and 14 and showed some sure hands and nice moves after the catch. Maclin found the endzone on the same offensive drive as he took a WR screen pass from Foles and used a block and his speed to race into the endzone and give the Eagles a 7-0 lead. Maclin made a nice catch next to the right sideline and picked up a first down with an 11 yard catch. He followed that up with a WR screen pass for just a 1 yard gain. Later in the drive Foles found Maclin wide open on the right side of the field and Maclin picked up some additional yards after the catch totaling 28 yards. Maclin a 8 yard catch over the middle but was sandwiched by two Cardinals defenders and all three hit helmets hard and Maclin was slow to get up and headed to the Eagles dressing room to get checked out. Maclin continued to be heavily targeted in the game as he shock off the big hit and returned to the game and picked up a big 12 yard first down catch over the middle of the field. Maclin had a another 10 yard grab over the middle on his 8th catch of the game and put him over 100 yards on the day. Maclin raced down the middle of the field and grabbed a 54 yard touchdown in stride from QB Nick Foles. Maclin caught a 8 yard catch and later a 19 yard catch to help give the Eagles a few shots in the endzone to try to get the victory.
2014 Week 9 vs HOU (7 / 6 / 158 / 2 rec)
Maclin's first reception was for an 11 yard gain and a first down as he tight roped the sidelines and kept his feet in bounds. Maclin showed off his speed as he hauled in a 59 yard touchdown pass from Foles which he caught in stride and landed in the endzone. Maclin continued his big game even after Foles left for the day and on Sanchez first play from scrimmage he raced down the middle of the field once again and showed off his speed and ball tracking ability and grabbed another 50+ reception with a 52 yard grab. Maclin caught another 7 yard pass from Sanchez over the middle and continues to rack in the receptions. Maclin took a screen pass which he turned into a 21 yard gain and moved the Eagles into Texans territory. Maclin caught a short pass in the endzone that he made sure to secure before it hit the ground. Maclin continues to see a heavy dose of targets in this offense and he continues to translate those targets into plenty of receptions and big plays.
2014 Week 10 vs CAR (7 / 3 / 38 / 0 rec)
Maclin's first target was an under throw in the endzone and in the next drive he caught a 15 yard pass over the middle of the field. Maclin's next catch was over the middle and was for 14 yard gain where he was stopped 2 yards short of a first down. Maclin had a 3rd reception on a 9 yard gain on a screen pass to the left side.
2014 Week 11 vs GB (11 / 9 / 93 / 1 rec)
Maclin got involved early as he caught a 20 yard pass from Sanchez on the third play of the game. Maclin's second catch of the game was a WR screen pass for a short 4 yard gain. Maclin started off the 2nd half drive with catches of 7 and 26 yards, on the 26 yard gain he looked great after the catch as he tried to push the play even further down the field. Maclin caught two short passes of 7 and 4 yards to help set up the touchdown pass to Matthews. Maclin caught a 20 yard touchdown pass late in the game in garbage time but he did a nice job of taking the catch short of the goal line and making sure he ran the 6 yards after the catch to get the ball into the endzone.
2014 Week 12 vs TEN (8 / 6 / 59 / 0 rec)
Maclin's season has slowed down somewhat since Sanchez came into the starting lineup. His first reception in this game came on his first target, as he caught an out route for a first down in front of a defender. That play came in the first quarter, but Maclin didn't see the ball again until early in the second quarter when he caught a screen pass and turned it into a four yard gain. Later in the second quarter, Sanchez missed Maclin with a wild throw to a deep out route. He followed up with the same play almost immediately after, but this time his pass was accurate and Maclin was able to make a very impressive reception while going out of bounds. Maclin caught another screen pass for just two yards, before an in route gave him a first down in the red zone. Finally, Maclin caught another impressive deep out route at the sideline for a first down. Sanchez's accuracy and overall ability is clearly limiting Maclin's potential for production.
2014 Week 13 vs DAL (10 / 8 / 108 / 0 rec)
On Maclin's first action on the day he caught an underneath pass for an 8 yard gain and helped set up a 2nd and short for Sanchez and the Eagles. Maclin picked up a 13 yard catch where he had to keep his feet in bounds and passed 1,000 receiving yards on the year for the first time in his career.

On the next drive Maclin took a WR screen pass for just 3 yards. Maclin had a find 11 yard first down catch to help the Eagles drive the ball down at the end of the first half. Maclin caught a 7 yard pass in traffic early in the third quarter. Maclin had another big catch for a 6 yard reception and an Eagles first down on a third down play as he had to secure the ball and dive for the necessary first down yards.
2014 Week 14 vs SEA (6 / 3 / 21 / 1 rec)
On the Seahawks 1 yard line, Maclin was sent in motion and found some separation from Richard Sherman and Sanchez found Maclin open and threw him a quick WR screen pass out of the backfield where Maclin raced the ball across the goal line. Maclin made a 12 yard catch where he took a short pass and ran through traffic to help pick up a first down.
2014 Week 15 vs DAL (6 / 4 / 98 / 0 rec)
Maclin caught his first catch of the game with an 11 yard grab on the right sideline. Maclin caught his second pass of the game early in the third quarter to help give the Eagles a first down on a third down play with a diving catch right at the first down marker. On a third and 11 Sanchez found Maclin down the right sideline for a catch and run of 72 yards down to the Cowboys 1 yard line setting up the second Chris Polk touchdown of the game.
2014 Week 16 vs WAS (6 / 4 / 62 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin was invisible for much of the game, catching only four passes on six targets. He caught a fantastic leaping, toe-tapping catch to get Philadelphia into the red zone with the Eagles trailing in the fourth quarter, but otherwise failed to make much of an impact. The Eagles game plan appeared to be tailored toward attacking the Washington LB group instead.
2014 Week 17 vs NYG (6 / 3 / 49 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin only managed three catches against the Giants as he failed to make a big play for the Eagles or score a touchdown. Maclin's first catch came on a screen pass inside, as he was able to weave his way for as many yards as possible. Maclin then got wide open on a deep crossing route down the field and picked up a lot of yards after the catch due to the separation he had attained. Maclin managed to get wide open over the middle of the field for a big first down and got open again on a deep pass but Sanchez missed him this time. Maclin was somewhat underused and forgotten about in this game as teammate receiver Matthews lead all receivers for the Eagles.
2012 Week 1 vs CLE (14 / 7 / 96 / 1 rec)
Jeremy Maclin was the Eagles most involved receiver, but he had plenty of negative plays to go along with his handful of positive plays. Maclin's first notable appearance came towards the end of the first half as he took advantage of backup cornerback Brian Skrine. Maclin used his speed to beat Skrine down the sideline for 48 yards, before catching a touchdown by beating Skrine with his route running on the next play. Skrine was left in single coverage when his safety over the top moved inside to DeSean Jackson. Maclin attacked the corner of the endzone to turn Skrine around, before breaking inside for the reception at the back of the endzone. When Maclin was catching the ball by the post, Skrine was still facing the pylon at the back of the endzone. Maclin quickly became a problem for the Eagles however as Michael Vick's third interception was a result of his cowardice. Maclin was streaking across the field when Vick threw a slightly high pass his direction. The pass wasn't perfect, but Maclin only had to reach his hands out to catch it. Maclin didn't fully extend his arms as he anticipated the hit from Joe Haden. The ball bounced off of Maclin's finger tips and landed safely in Haden's hands. Maclin and Vick were not on the same page all day as his fourth interception went his way too, but Maclin was able to impact the game positively solely because of his overwhelming matchup advantage over the backup cornerback, Brian Skrine. Skrine couldn't deal with Maclin's physical skills going down the sideline. After Maclin forced a penalty from Skrine going down the sideline, he swapped onto Joe Haden towards the end of the game. On one occasion, Maclin ran an excellent route to gain separation from Haden in the endzone, but dropped the football when Vick hit him in the chest with the pass. It would have been a game-winning reception.
2012 Week 2 vs BAL (1 / 1 / 23 / 1 rec)
Maclin had only one reception, but it went for a touchdown. When Michael Vick was forced from the pocket, he ran to the left-hand-side. Cary Williams had been covering Maclin to that side, and had been repeatedly beaten before this play. Williams had also been getting involved with Eagles' players after the whistle which raised question marks over his focus. His focus is the reason Maclin was able to make the play in the endzone. Williams left Maclin completely alone to try and chase down Vick, despite other defenders being in better position. Vick had an easy throw to make on the run, while Maclin kept his feet in bounds for the touchdown. He hadn't been involved on offense before that play. His subdued performance was likely a result of his injury issues entering the game. Maclin did leave the game injured in the third quarter, after throwing a block for Brent Celek, but returned towards end of quarter.
2012 Week 4 vs NYG (3 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin was returning from injury and did not look 100% on Sunday night. The Eagles leaned heavily on their rushing attack for a change and Vick had less pass attempts which inevitably hindered the production of Maclin. Regardless, Maclin received few looks like Vick in the pocket and didn't appear to be involved in a large way with the Eagles offensive game plan. Vick looked to teammates WR Jackson and TE Celek to move the ball on third down and Maclin was unable to explode down the field with his speed for a big catch. He was most likely returning from the injury that kept him out the previous week and they might have limited his action on purpose to prevent further injury.
2012 Week 5 vs PIT (8 / 5 / 39 / 0 rec)
Maclin was Vick's preferred target on the day as he ran a variety of routes primarily underneath, but sometimes sneaking deep. His first reception was a curl route against off coverage for an easy first down. Vick then overthrew him deep whenhe was covered. That was followed by another disconnect when Vick overthrew him on a slant route. Maclin was brave to extend for the pass but couldn't catch it with a defender on his back. Maclin drew pass interference against Ike Taylor when he beat him deep down the sideline. Maclin would have caught the pass but Taylor pulled his arm as soon as it landed in his hands. Vick went straight back to Maclin on a curl route close to the goalline in single coverage against Keenan Lewis. Maclin got around Lewis for the first down but couldn't beat him cleanly for the touchdown. Vick wanted to hit Maclin deep again on Ike Taylor, but he missed him and Maclin did well to hold Taylor to prevent him from making a play on the football. Maclin was seeing a lot of Taylor and he beat him again on a slant. He then caught a curl underneath before catching a quick in route in front of Keenan Lewis.
2012 Week 6 vs DET (10 / 6 / 130 / 1 rec)
Maclin finished the game as Philadelphia's top receiver, but over half of his receiving yards came on one pass in the 4th quarter. To his credit, it was a great play though. Maclin lined up on the left side as the point person of a bunch formation. When the ball was snapped, he broke up the field, then cut to the middle between the hash marks. The defenders lost track of him and Vick placed the ball perfectly for Maclin to catch it in stride. He took it 70 yards to the end zone for a touchdown that should have put the game away for the Eagles. Maclin got off to a slow start, and wasn't even targeted until four minutes left in the first half. Maclin was most effective on deep routes where he changed direction to shake the defender - either on a curl or a sideline route. He had three of these type of plays in the game and came up with all three receptiosn for 17, 15 and 16 yards respectively as well as key first downs. The 70 yard TD was just the icing on the cake for him.
2012 Week 8 vs ATL (9 / 6 / 33 / 0 rec)
Maclin led all Eagles with ten targets, but did not see much other than short passes from quarterback Michael Vick. With the Falcons content to give up dink-and-dunk passes in exchange for taking away the big play, Maclin caught six passes for thirty-three yards. The mid-game ankle injury to DeSean Jackson no doubt caused an uptick in Maclin's targets. Despite the increased looks, Maclin contributed little to an Eagles passing game that underachieved all day. With a quarterback change looming in Philadelphia, it is entirely possible Maclin will experience a drop in production in the weeks to come.
2012 Week 9 vs NO (4 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec)
Given the inconsistent offensive line play, Vick forced throws and did not have time to consistently find Maclin. As a result, Maclin did not earn his first catch until the third quarter when Vick found him along the right sideline for a six-yard gain. During his team's ninth drive, Vick found Maclin for 23-yards down the seam on a 3rd-and-8 play. Maclin demonstrated strong focus and body control as he reached across his body to make the catch. During his team's eighth drive, Vick had Maclin open in the back of the endzone on a double in-route. However, Vick threw the ball too high and Maclin was not able to make the catch.
2012 Week 10 vs DAL (12 / 8 / 93 / 1 rec)
Maclin started slow against the Cowboys but ultimately finished the day with seven quality receptions on twelve targets. An eight reception was credited on the game's final play when he ended up as the last player with the ball after receiving a lateral as the clock expired. His best catch came on a touchdown reception from Nick Foles. On the play, Maclin lined up on the left side of the line and sprinted downfield to the middle of the end zone. Foles stepped up in the pocket and delivered a high arcing pass to Maclin. The receiver jumped and was able to secure the ball as the Dallas defender overran him. Maclin did also draw a twenty yard interference penalty on rookie Morris Claibore that resulted in a Philadelphia first down on third and two. Maclin was targeted deep downfield four times resulting in one touchdown, one penalty drawn, and two incompletions. When not running go routes Maclin was most effective on curls and quick crossing patterns to the middle of the field. Maclin was also briefly removed from the game due to injury late in the first quarter but returned shortly thereafter.
2012 Week 11 vs WAS (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Maclin did not record a catch against the Redskins. Nick Foles targeted him three times. Foles was under pressure all day and did not have time to find Maclin downfield. The combination of inexperience and a morose team offensive performance doomed Maclin to the goose egg.
2012 Week 12 vs CAR (7 / 5 / 55 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin did the best he could with Nick Foles at quarterback and a rather conservative game plan. Maclin feasted on rookie CB Josh Norman, reading the young player's leverage and using it against him. Maclin could have caught a deep pass for a 40+ yard gain, but he was interfered with and DPI was the call. Until and unless Michael Vick returns, Maclin will not be able to thrive as the Eagles' number one target.
2012 Week 13 vs DAL (5 / 3 / 38 / 0 rec)
Maclin finished the day with three receptions but created havoc in the middle of the field by drawing two defenders on most of his routes. His best reception came on a crossing pattern from the left side. On the play, Maclin made an excellent cut to the middle of the field. The Dallas defender was picked by another Eagles receiver allowing Maclin to cleanly make the catch at full speed before cutting upfield for a 21 yard gain. Maclin primarily ran drag routes and crossing patterns in an effort to loosen up the interior defense of Dallas.
2012 Week 14 vs TB (13 / 9 / 104 / 1 rec)
Maclin had a non-descript first half, but stepped up when needed in Philadelphia's second half comeback effort. Of his first six targets, Maclin misplayed three of them and the defensive back made a quality break-up on a fourth. Maclin's lone chunk of yardage in that opening set of targets was garbage yards on a third-and-very-long situation with prevent defense over the middle. When it mattered most, Maclin made the plays the Eagles needed to secure the victory. On the final drive, Nick Foles found Maclin over the middle to convert a third-and-long to sustain the drive. Later, with just two seconds on the clock, Maclin created separation in the front corner of the end zone for the game-winning touchdown. After three subpar games, Maclin exploited Tampa Bay's no.32 pass defense with 13 targets, his second-highest total of the season. The Redskins present a great matchup in Week 16.
2012 Week 15 vs CIN (9 / 4 / 73 / 0 rec)
Maclin led all Eagles in receptions, receiving yards and targets as Philadelphia's top option in the passing game. Opening the game with a fumble on a six-yard out route, Maclin redeemed himself later in the game with a tremendous forty-six yard go route reception after Foles got the Bengals to bite on a fake bubble screen. Foles looked immediately to Maclin on the next play at Cincinnati's eleven-yard line, but Maclin fell down and could not catch the pass. The game was, overall, a mixed bag for the Eagles' top receiver, who finished with seventy-three yards on four catches. While Maclin had no trouble finding the soft spots in the Bengals' defense or getting separation from Cincinnati's secondary, he was responsible for the first of Philadelphia's four fumbles, and he did not come back to the ball on Nick Foles' one interception of the game. Running deep into Cincinnati territory, Maclin did not break off his route, and Bengals cornerback Leon Hall cut him off for a forty-four yard interception return.
2012 Week 16 vs WAS (14 / 8 / 116 / 1 rec)
Maclin cracked the century mark in receiving yards for the second time in three games, proving he can produce as the Eagles' number one receiver, regardless of which quarterback plays under center. The Mizzou product caught eight passes for one hundred and sixteen yards on an eye-popping fourteen targets, including a twenty-seven yard touchdown grab off a flag route in which he got easy separation from the Redskins defense. Maclin also caught a thirty-eight yard pass from Nick Foles after the Redskins collapsed the pocket, reinforcing that Maclin is Foles' go-to option in the passing game. Foles and Maclin had the opportunity to tie the game on the Eagles' final drive, but Foles overthrew Maclin on second-and-two and then under threw a wide-open Maclin on third-and-two, with both passes in the end zone.At eight hundred and thirty-five receiving yards this season, Maclin has an outside shot at reaching one thousand receiving yards in Week Seventeen against the Giants.
2012 Week 17 vs NYG (9 / 4 / 22 / 1 rec)
Jeremy Maclin got few targets on Sunday like most of his teammates but was able to score at least. Maclin got wide open in the endzone on 4th down as QB Vick bought a lot of time on a rollout and hit Maclin easily for the touchdown pass. Maclin and Vick showed little chemistry apart from this play however. Maclin dropped several passes, including one on a high curl route and on a screen pass that were somewhat costly. Maclin and the Eagles suffered from a lack of possession and quickly got behind in this game and were unable to recover. Maclin had to deal with inaccurate passes from Vick but didn't help out his QB either but making the simple plays that were there to be made. Maclin was never given any deep attempts either and didn't look as fast or quick as he had in previous times as an Eagle.
2011 Week 1 vs STL (3 / 1 / 20 / 0 rec)
Maclin was seldom used, but showed good speed when he got open underneath for a 20 yard gain, He was also a red zone target. As he continues to recover from his cancer scare, he should become more involved in the passing game.
2011 Week 2 vs ATL (15 / 13 / 171 / 2 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)
Maclin blew up in week 2 as he was virtually everywhere all night long reeling in 13 catches and 2 TD's on 15 targets. He was simply unstoppable and was leaned on heavily due to DeSean Jackson being hampered by an arm injury. Maclin set career highs across the board and displayed his typical terrific hands (except for a crucial drop on the Eagles final drive) most of the night and crisp route running. If your concern was that his once mysterious offseason illness was lingering, you can now safely put those to rest. He's back and looking poised as a solid #2 WR with #1 upside some weeks.
2011 Week 3 vs NYG (7 / 5 / 69 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin did not have trouble getting open in this game, his quarterback just had trouble getting him the ball on a consistent basis. The Giants afforded Maclin a generous cushion at the line and he used this to run many deep in routes for big gains. Maclin also caught a terrific floated pass from Vick in Giant territory. Maclin was unable to get the big play however as the Giants played good defense and kept everyone in front of them. The Eagle passing game suffered from inadequate pass protection for QB Vick and due to the emergence of RB McCoy who had a terrific day on the ground which took some production away from Maclin and Co. Maclin will have bounce back games but on Sunday he could not get anything consistent going with his QB and there was little else he could do as an individual.
2011 Week 4 vs SF (11 / 7 / 74 / 0 rec)
Maclin is one of Vick's favorite targets, and Vick actually missed him on a deep ball early in the game. Maclin's fumble on Philly's final drive was the back breaker, and he looked devastated on the sideline. But the announcers had pointed out earlier in the game that Maclin was carrying the ball very loose as he tried to make his way through traffic. Maclin has to use that fumble as fuel for the rest of the season. Aside from that fumble, he and Desean looked explosive.
2011 Week 5 vs BUF (8 / 6 / 54 / 1 rec)
It was a tale of two halves for Maclin this week. He was the team's leading receiver in the first half with 5 catches on 7 targets for 51 yards. Maclin also picked up the team's only touchdown in the first half on an easy 2-yard catch when he was left wide open due to a mistake from the Bills defense. In the second half, however, Vick seemed to stop looking in his direction. Maclin was targeted just once in the second half and converted it for a 3-yard gain. The Eagles fell behind early in the game and made extensive use of the 3-WR set, but it was #3 WR Jason Avant who seemed to benefit the most.
2011 Week 6 vs WAS (7 / 5 / 101 / 0 rec)
After dropping his first target, Maclin put on a clinic in route running, and thoroughly dominated CB DeAngelo Hall. In the second quarter he caught two hitches in a row on precise timing routes and then made Hall look silly on deep out where Maclin found himself wide open. His headiest play went for a loss as a Vick pass was deflected in the air and Maclin came back to catch the fluttering pass before a defender could pick it off. On his one deep catch he again found himself wide open, but had to slow down due to Vick putting too much air under the pass. Although Hall caught up with him when he slowed, Maclin still made the catch over the overmatched DB. Maclin led the team in targets, catches and yards mostly due to his precision on the short routes and his size advantage over Hall
2011 Week 8 vs DAL (3 / 3 / 54 / 1 rec)
Against the Cowboys Jeremy Maclin most often lined up to the left side of the line of scrimmage. He primarily ran quick screens and slants in an effort to keep the Cowboys linebackers off of Michael Vick. Maclin's best catch came on a receiver screen on the Eagles first drive. On the play, he caught the ball to the left side of the line before following his blockers upfield for an easy touchdown. Maclin looks to be at full speed and shows very little trouble getting off the line of scrimmage against smaller corners. His route running has improved substantially and he clearly has the trust of his quarterback regardless of down and distance.
2011 Week 9 vs CHI (9 / 4 / 63 / 0 rec)
Maclin was the most targeted Eagle on the night but did not make the most of his opportunity. He made a poor effort to get to the ball on his first target and early on was having trouble getting open against man-to-man coverage. When he finally did get open in the second quarter he dropped a wide open pass that could have been a huge gain. Maclin started getting open more later in the game, especially when the Bears went to zone, but the most important play ended disappointingly for him. Maclin made a great catch on a ball thrown high from Vick on 4th and 10. Unfortunately the difficulty of the catch threw Maclin off balance and he fell to the ground just two yards shy of a game extending first down.
2011 Week 10 vs ARI (5 / 2 / 6 / 0 rec)
Maclin was hurt early in the game, as the ball was thrown ahead of him over the middle. Not only did he miss out on the reception, he also got cranked and didn't factor into the game after that.
2011 Week 14 vs MIA (4 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
Started the football game but had a hard time connecting with Vick as he was making his way back form an injury that has kept him off the field for a few weeks. He had 3 targets early and only was able to haul in 1 of them although Vick was under a lot of pressure. he had 1 more target before the half, wide open up the right sideline but Vick overthrew him and then was not called upon much in the 2nd half of the football game.
2011 Week 15 vs NYJ (5 / 3 / 57 / 0 rec)
Maclin didn't seem to have any lingering issues with his various injuries and found some success against Jets CB Antonio Cromartie. His 23 yard reception at the end of the second quarter came in part because Cromartie gave him a cushion and he was able to get the ball and turn upfield. As long as Maclin is healthy, he is very dangerous after the catch and the Jets had some issues containing him early. Once the game got out of hand, the Eagles were content to run more often and grind the clock out.
2011 Week 16 vs DAL (6 / 5 / 72 / 1 rec)
Jeremy Maclin was somewhat quiet for a lot of this game but made his mark in the end and fantasy owners should be pleased with his performance in a somewhat meaningless game. The Eagles were passing a lot in this game but QB Vick was spreading the ball around a lot. A lot of Maclin's plays were made by QB Vick in a big way as he evaded pressure and turned his attention downfield to WR's Maclin and Jackson. Maclin was able to use this advantage to buy some time and find holes in the zone defenses for first down receptions to keep drives alive. He was able to haul in some nice passes, including a big in route over the middle where he got massive separation from his DB. Maclin then showed incredible athletic ability and awareness as he hauled in a short bullet pass from Vick in the back of the endzone, just barely keeping his feet in field of play for a big score. The Eagles seemed content with a conservative approach to this game and Maclin's production was limited in a way as there was a 14+ point lead for most of this game, including into the 4th quarter.
2011 Week 17 vs WAS (13 / 8 / 105 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin had a solid game on Sunday but almost had two touchdowns instead of one. Maclin was unable to haul in the bullet pass in the endzone from Vick, despite the well thrown ball. Maclin quickly shook this off and turned it up a notch. Maclin worked the deep middle of the field and found many soft spots for first downs. Maclin ran slants, curls, seams and more routes to create separation with his speed and showed the chemistry he has with QB Vick. Vick had great confidence to fit the ball into tight windows to WR Maclin and Maclin has the talent and speed to run any route the in route tree. He also displayed an incredible sense of awareness and adjustment as he was unable to haul in a pass over the middle on the first attempt but tipped it up and to himself, while catching and securing it on the second attempt at the pass.
2010 Week 1 vs GB (5 / 4 / 38 / 1 rec, 1 / 11 / 0 rush)
Maclin touched the ball more times than DeSean Jackson in Week 1 (four catches, one rush) as the Packers looked to limit Jackson. Maclin was targeted more by Michael Vick after Vick started the second half as four of his five targets came after halftime. Vick connected with Maclin for a touchdown of 17 yards in the fourth quarter on a long third and goal where Maclin ran a nice post route to get open.
2010 Week 2 vs DET (6 / 3 / 26 / 1 rec)
Although he only had 26 yards on three receptions, Maclin did manage to score a touchdown for the second week in a row. Vick obviously likes to look for him deep in the red zone and Maclin should be valued more when the Eagles play a tough defense that could presumably take DeSean Jackson out of the game (like what happened in Week 1 against Green Bay). However even against week defenses like the Lions, Maclin can obviously get open in the end zone and as such, is a viable option in deeper leagues.
2010 Week 3 vs JAX (7 / 4 / 83 / 2 rec)
Jeremy Maclin's numbers are rising as he gets more and more accustomed to Michael Vick as his quarterback. Maclin scored two touchdowns against Jacksonville, first with a 16-yard grab at the front right corner of the end zone as Vick scrambled to buy enough time to find Maclin. Later Maclin split double coverage for a 45-yard catch and run down the left sideline for Vick's third touchdown pass on the day.
2010 Week 4 vs WAS (2 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin was held back by strong coverage by the Redskins and Kevin Kolb's inability to look deep against Washington. Maclin had just two targets despite seeming to get open more often than that during the game. Expect Kolb and Maclin to get back on the same page next week if Kolb starts in Week 5.
2010 Week 5 vs SF (9 / 6 / 95 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin led all Philadelphia receivers with nine targets in Week 5 against the 49ers. Maclin got open down the field and over the middle and he was often the primary read for Kevin Kolb. Maclin failed to score but he had a few chances deep but the pass was just a little off. Maclin is benefiting from lesser coverage as defenses respect DeSean Jackson more and Maclin is taking advantage of single coverage.
2010 Week 6 vs ATL (7 / 7 / 159 / 2 rec)
Jeremy Maclin had a huge game in Week 6, catching all seven of his targets for 159 yards and two scores. Maclin was more involved in the passing game after the unfortunate loss of DeSean Jackson (concussion). Maclin immediately stepped up for QB Kevin Kolb, catching his first touchdown on a nice comeback route to the goal line as Kolb hit him with the ball right at the front corner of the end zone. Maclin caught it and landed just on the goal line for the touchdown. His big day wrapped up with a huge 83-yard bomb from Kolb for his second touchdown of the day, pushing him over 150 yards for the day. With Jackson's early diagnosis of a severe concussion, odds are that Maclin will be the number one wideout for Philadelphia next week against the Titans.
2010 Week 7 vs TEN (12 / 5 / 42 / 0 rec, 1 / 14 / 0 rush)
Jeremy Maclin was the clear target for Kevin Kolb and the Eagles in Week 7 against Tennessee, as Philadelphia was sorely missing DeSean Jackson (concussion). Maclin was targeted 14 times but the Titans were ready for him with double coverage most of the day, keeping him under wraps all afternoon. Maclin managed just five catches despite all of those chances and had just one longer catch of 17 yards near the end of the third quarter. Maclin was worked more into the offense as both a runner (one end-around for 14 yards) and also worked as a Wildcat quarterback where he started a trick play where he handed the ball off to Kevin Kolb who then hit Riley Cooper deep close to the goal line.
2010 Week 9 vs IND (8 / 4 / 48 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin had only four catches and 48 yards against Indianapolis in Week 9, all of them coming in the second half. The Eagles' game plan was to target DeSean Jackson early and establish him, which they did. Maclin had seven targets in the second half and was a bigger factor, but with Philadelphia leading most of the game limited Maclin's upside. Maclin and Jackson will continue to be threats as Michael Vick's primary targets.
2010 Week 10 vs WAS (6 / 4 / 79 / 1 rec, 1 / 11 / 0 rush)
Maclin has settled back into the WR#2 for the Eagles and his production has slowed a touch since Desean Jackson returned from his injury. However Maclin continues to see plenty of targets and make some outstanding plays for his team. In week 10 Maclin made a highlight reel catch as he caught a 48 TD pass from Vick. On the play Maclin caught the ball while falling backwards at the goal line in tight coverage. He continually took advantage of the Redskins deep safety coverage on his way to 79 yards and the TD.
2010 Week 11 vs NYG (14 / 9 / 120 / 0 rec)
Where Jackson could not capitalise, Jeremy Maclin did. Maclin is a dynamic weapon for Michael Vick, who looked to him often. Maclin broke tackles, played physical football and also showed graceful hands in making his catches. He is a perfect complement to Jackson in this "speedster" offense.
2010 Week 12 vs CHI (6 / 4 / 47 / 1 rec)
Jeremy Maclin continues to make a strong case to be the "1B" receiver to DeSean Jackson's "1A" - or is it the other way around? Maclin had a bigger game than Jackson in Week 12 against Chicago, pulling in six more catches and a touchdown to add to his career best season. Maclin is taking full advantage of opposing defenses focusing more on Jackson, leaving Maclin in single coverage most of the games. Another solid game is likely up next against Houston.
2010 Week 13 vs HOU (8 / 5 / 68 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin had another solid game in Week 13 against the Houston Texans, pulling in five balls to lead all of the wide receivers in both receptions and targets with eight chances on the night. Maclin looked to be well on his way to his third 100-yard game of the year after catching five passes for 68 yards in the first half but he saw just one target after halftime. Although Maclin had just one long catch - a 34-yard grab just before halftime - he was also the intended target of a deep pass in the third quarter that was intercepted due to QB Michael Vick being hit on the throw. Maclin remains a big part of a dynamic Philadelphia offense and is a must start wideout in all fantasy formats.
2010 Week 14 vs DAL (3 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Maclin had one reception on a play that saw Michael Vick roll out to the right and then throw back across his body to Maclin on the left side of the field. He was also targeted on a short crossing route that was intercepted by Brady James. Despite Vick spreading the ball around to a number of receivers, Maclin only had one reception as Vick seemed to be concentrating on passing the ball downfield to DeSean Jackson or passing it short to Lesean McCoy.
2010 Week 15 vs NYG (11 / 7 / 59 / 2 rec)
Jeremy Maclin continued his strong season with another seven catches and two touchdowns in Week 15 against the New York Giants. Maclin scored on an eight-yard slant pattern in the Red Zone late in the third quarter before adding a 13-yard catch with less than two minutes to play to tie the game at 31-31. Maclin nearly had a score to open the fourth quarter where he was open deep but Michael Vick was hit in the pocket and could not step up and throw a stronger pass to him; instead the soft throw hung in the air and was defended by CB Terrell Thomas who raced back to bat it away. Maclin's performance will be overshadowed in the huge comeback but fantasy owners who started him will notice his big game.
2010 Week 16 vs MIN (8 / 6 / 74 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin was the most consistent wide receiver in Week 16, catching six of eight targets for 74 yards against Minnesota. Maclin struggled to add much yardage after the catch but nearly had a touchdown on a 28-yard catch in the first quarter. Maclin pulled down the catch along the sideline and slid out of bounds just before the end zone on his longest reception of the night. With the Eagles locked into the third seed for the playoffs, Maclin may see limited action if any in Week 17 before suiting up for the postseason.
2010 Week 17 vs DAL (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin started for the Eagles in Week 17 as Philadelphia had hopes of getting him 36 receiving yards to put him at the 1,000-yard mark for the year, but it was not meant to be. The Eagles correctly decided to rest him after giving him one deep target early in the meaningless contest, but after the first quarter Maclin never saw the field again. He will be at full strength in Sunday's Wild Card game against the Packers.
2010 Week 18 vs GB (7 / 3 / 73 / 0 rec)
With the Philly offense going nowhere, Maclin caught a slant pass and took it 44 yards into Packer territory to really start things rolling for the Eagles. Aside from that play though, Maclin wasn't able to get open quick enough to make much of an impact. Also, in the first half, when Jackson was hurt, Maclin's inability to make big plays put the Eagles in a big hole.
2009 Week 2 vs NO (3 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)
Maclin hardly contributed to the Philadelphia effort in Week 2, but his upside is if and when Kevin Curtis finally admits that he is not at full strength and he gets a shot to step in for Curtis. Until then, Maclin is behind Curtis, DeSean Jackson and even Jason Avant and has little or no fantasy value.
2009 Week 3 vs KC (6 / 4 / 33 / 0 rec, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Jeremy Maclin did not show much explosion in Week 3 against Kansas City. Maclin started in place of the inactive Kevin Curtis (knee injury) but did not do more than grab a few short passes over the middle or on the sideline for 5-11 yards at a clip. Maclin had a target at the goal line but Kevin Kolb threw behind him on a crossing route, which not only cost Maclin his first NFL touchdown but left him open for a hard shot from the safety in the back that likely hurt him enough to slow him down for the rest of the game. Maclin now gets two weeks to learn more of that complicated playbook and shake off that hit.
2009 Week 5 vs TB (8 / 6 / 142 / 2 rec)
Maclin started his second game in a row thanks in part to Kevin Curtis' injury woes. Maclin started in place of Curtis in Week 5 against Tampa Bay and he exploded on the first offensive play of the game for the Eagles, catching a strong 51-yard touchdown pass from Donovan McNabb that found him beating single coverage at the goal line. Maclin continued his huge performance with another deep score off of a "bunch" formation (two receivers tight to the offensive line on either side of the tackles) where Maclin went another 40 yards down the middle of the field. Maclin still is not running polished routes, grabbing most of yards on deep "go" patterns or simple curl plays, but as long as the rookie continues to work well with McNabb to get open when he gets his chances, he will see plenty of action. Maclin demonstrated his upside potential against the Bucs and he will be working hard the rest of the way to keep up both his playing time and his production.
2009 Week 6 vs OAK (6 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Maclin started once again for the Eagles as Kevin Curtis was inactive, but the young rookie returned to reality after his big week last week. Maclin had several targets that were attempts to either go deep or stretch the field, but either they were inaccurate or Maclin was not open enough to make a play. Maclin is not a consistent enough option right now to be a consistent fantasy starter, but in a good matchup he makes for a "high risk, high reward" type of flex starter.
2009 Week 7 vs WAS (7 / 5 / 53 / 0 rec)
Maclin got the most targets of any Eagle receiver. They were mostly quick throws - slant and screens that allowed Maclin to make things happen after the catch. He didn't, and he didn't look very elusive and tentative in the open field. Maclin did throw a block downfield to make Jackson's long run into a touchdown, and he also made a heady comeback to the sidelines when McNabb broke the pocket for one of his best gains on the night. Maclin did get behind the defense once, but McNabb was looking for Jackson over the middle instead.
2009 Week 8 vs NYG (4 / 4 / 47 / 1 rec)
Rookie wide receiver Jeremy Maclin started once again, and he is likely to be in that role the rest of the year for the Eagles. Maclin put up solid numbers in Week 8 against the Giants, racking up four catches on several shorter routes with a 23-yard leaping grab for a touchdown with less than a minute to go in the first half. The young pass catcher is still learning the complicated Philadelphia offense but is enough of a playmaker in a dynamic pass-first offense to be a solid fantasy contributor most weeks.
2009 Week 9 vs DAL (9 / 3 / 44 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin started for the Eagles at wide receiver, a spot he is likely to remain in all year with Kevin Curtis out indefinitely. Maclin had his first target of the night ricochet off of his helmet for an interception by Dallas on a ball thrown way too hard and high by Donovan McNabb. Maclin led all Eagles with nine targets but McNabb was not accurate at all on the night. The Cowboys covered the pass well and limited Maclin to just 44 yards and no catch beyond 15 yards in length.
2009 Week 10 vs SD (8 / 6 / 76 / 1 rec, 1 / -6 / 0 rush)
Maclin teamed with DeSean Jackson and Jason Avant to wreak havoc on the San Diego secondary in this game. Despite that, the Eagles were never really in the game until a brief time late in the fourth quarter. It appeared as if the Chargers were all too willing to allow this threesome to run wild all over the middle of the field, and Maclin benefitted greatly from the lax coverage afforded him by San Diego. Late in the game as the Eagles began their comeback attempt, Maclin broke free in the back corner of the end zone and managed to keep his toes inbounds for a short score. It didn't seem as if McNabb was throwing to one guy over the other out of these three; they were fairly interchangeable both in number of catches and targets as well as the routes they were running.
2009 Week 11 vs CHI (9 / 6 / 64 / 0 rec)
Maclin is clearly an emerging player in this offense, and it was put on display once again in week 11. He lined up in different spots on the line throughout the game, doing his best work out of the slot on quick slant patterns vs. bump and run coverage. Maclin wasn't able to find much space to utilize his athleticism; however he managed to turn in a solid game finishing with 6 catches for 64 yards.
2009 Week 12 vs WAS (7 / 5 / 63 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin stepped up for the injured DeSean Jackson in the second half, grabbing a nice over-the-shoulder catch for a 35-yard gain in the fourth quarter on the drive that set up the game-winning field goal. Maclin added a few other grabs on the day but the bigger concern for the Eagles could be the loss of DeSean Jackson if his concussion keeps him out of next week's game. If that is the case then Maclin is likely to see more targets next week against Atlanta.
2009 Week 13 vs ATL (6 / 4 / 83 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin hurt his foot early in the game on a punt return as he tripped over himself during the runback and could not go on the first Philadelphia possession. Maclin returned to the starting lineup shortly after a brief rest and contributed well as a receiver, grabbing four of six targets on the day to lead all Eagles in targets, catches and yardage. Maclin converted a short pass into a huge 56-yard play in the second quarter by showing his excellent speed in open spaces after the catch. Maclin will continue to be the top target until DeSean Jackson returns to the lineup.
2009 Week 14 vs NYG (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin inured his foot again in Week 14, tearing his plantar fascia against the Giants on Sunday night. Maclin had to be carted off of the field although the injury was kept relatively quiet as Maclin was not on the field when he was carted away. Maclin is likely to miss at least a few weeks and may be out for some of the playoffs as well - be sure to check injury updates on his status - but for now Maclin is no longer able to start for the Eagles.
2009 Week 16 vs DEN (10 / 6 / 92 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Maclin returned to action in Week 16 for the Eagles to catch six balls for 92 yards against Denver. Maclin had been suffering from a tear in his foot but he looked as quick and as fast as he was before the injury. Maclin was the key target late in the game as he made a spectacular grab along the left sideline for a 27-yard gain where he barely kept his toes in bounds. The catch set up the game-winning field goal for Philadelphia. Both the Eagles and Maclin will be at full strength for the showdown with the Cowboys in Week 17.
2009 Week 17 vs DAL (7 / 3 / 47 / 0 rec)
Rookie Jeremy Maclin started once again for the Eagles in Week 17, ending his rookie season with just three catches for 47 yards against Dallas. Maclin was open for a big gain in the second quarter over the middle but Donovan McNabb threw well behind him, costing them at least a 20-yard gain. Maclin and the rest of the Eagles must gear up for a big playoff tilt next Saturday back in Dallas.
2009 Week 18 vs DAL (12 / 7 / 146 / 1 rec)
Maclin got away from his man after a nice throw from Michael Vick to go 73 yards for a TD and tie the game at seven. He also had some nice moves in the open field to get a long gain in garbage time. He has made strides this year and should be a strong #2 to Jackson's #1 next year.
