Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin will replace Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas in the Pro Bowl due to injury.
Huddle Up: Fitting end to a big-time bounce-back season for Maclin, who set career highs across the board in 2014 with his 82 catches for 1,269 yards and 10 TDs after sitting out the previous season with a knee injury.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but head coach Chip Kelly said he hopes the Eagles will be able to re-sign Maclin.
Huddle Up: Maclin returned to Philly on a one-year deal after missing out on his previous free agent opportunity due to a knee injury. He was everything Kelly and the Eagles expected him to be this season, and Kelly's endorsement suggests that perhaps the team thinks of him as more important than just another cog in the machine.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin is expected to be lined up across from Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman often in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Not good news for Maclin who has tailed off some of late anyway after his scorching start. Meanwhile, this could mean more looks for red-hot rookie Jordan Matthews on the other side.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin posted 12 receptions for 187 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 8 game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Maclin has been a monster all season long in Chip Kelly's offense. He's locked in as a weekly WR1 and is shaping up to be one of the steals of this year's draft.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (hamstring) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 3, and is probable for Week 5 against the St. Louis Rams.
Huddle Up: Bright green light for Maclin, who trails only Jordy Nelson for the most targets among all WRs.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: Hammy issues are always worth monitoring, but no worries for now for the WR who ranks second in targets (47) and sixth in total fantasy points (54) heading into Week 5.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin did not participate in practice Tuesday, Sept. 30. Maclin said he is fine.
Huddle Up: There are lingering durability concerns with Maclin, but it doesn't sound like anything to worry about with the WR who ranks second among all wideouts with 47 targets and sixth with 54 fantasy points.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin walked off the field under his own power after falling and clutching his right knee during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21.
Huddle Up: The incident definitely looked scary as the wideout fell on his own and immediately grabbed the knee, but he was back in catching passes shortly after. In short, disaster averted.

As expected, Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) is inactive for the preseason game Friday, Aug. 15, against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Maclin has battled some injuries in camp and staying healthy is always a concern with him. Maclin has a chance to put up big fantasy numbers in Chip Kelly's offense but his Round 5 ADP makes him a bit of a risky selection given his health issues.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (hamstring) is out of practice Thursday, Aug. 14, and is unlikely to play in the second preseason game Friday, Aug. 15. Maclin's injury isn't considered serious.
Huddle Up: This issue needn't affect Maclin's fantasy draft-board standing, but his absence does allow rookie Jordan Matthews to accumulate more live-game experience.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin was not able to finish practice Wednesday, Aug. 13, because of a hamstring injury. Maclin said the injury is not serious and hopes to play in the second preseason game. He also had ice on his surgically repaired knee but did not say if that was a precautionary move.
Huddle Up: There were reports earlier in the day that Maclin was having noticeable success going against the Pats' Darrelle Revis, but the wideout may have overtaxed himself in the process. However, if he's able to play and get through Friday's exhibition without incident, there's no need for any draft-board adjustments.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (undisclosed) limped off the field Monday, Aug. 4, and participated in just one more play the rest of practice. Maclin said he expects to be back at practice Tuesday, Aug. 5.
Huddle Up: Not the most of encouraging of news with Maclin coming off last season's knee issues, so keep a close eye on the developments here the rest of the week.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) has been working without restrictions since the team began practicing this spring. Maclin is recovering from a torn ACL in his right knee that he suffered last July, and he has not experienced any setbacks since he began practicing. 'I've done everything since April 21st, when we were able to get out here as a team,' Maclin said. 'I've been getting better each and every day, and I'm really happy with my progress.'
Huddle Up: Maclin slides into the top role of a receiver rotation that also includes Riley Cooper and rookies Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff. If healthy, he should account for most--if not all--of the numbers vacated by DeSean Jackson's departure.

The Philadelphia Eagles fully expect Jeremy Maclin (knee) to be ready to go for the start of the 2014 season, according to general manager Howie Roseman. 'I think it depends on the player. We saw Adrian Peterson come back after six months, and did he win the MVP award after that? So I think it depends on the genetics. And all I know is what our doctors are telling us, and he;s doing a great job in his rehab. We fully expect him to be ready to go once the season starts.'
Huddle Up: If healthy, Maclin is in a prime spot to bounce back strong with DeSean Jackson and his 2013 team-leading 126 targets and 82 receptions having departed for D.C. this offseason.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) fell to the ground holding his left knee during OTA events on Monday, June 2. While Maclin tore the ACL in his right knee last year, causing him to miss the entire season, this incident left him clutching his left knee. Maclin quickly got to his feet, and later noted that he felt fine.
Huddle Up: Philly fans and Maclin's keeper-league owners are breathing normally again, with the WR figuring heavily in the team's post-DeSean Jackson plans after missing all of the 2013 campaign.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin said he expects the offense to be fine even though they lost Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson this offseason. '[Head coach Chip Kelly] said it himself: The offense is not built around one guy,' Maclin said. 'We have multiple guys that go out there and make plays.'
Huddle Up: With the return of Maclin and the addition of RB Darren Sproles, the wideout does have a point -- and we're not even to the draft yet.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said WR Jeremy Maclin is on schedule in terms of his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament that shelved him for the 2013 season. Kelly said he is not sure if Maclin will be able to participate in offseason workouts but should be 100 percent by training camp.
Huddle Up: Maclin averaged 67 catches, 893 yards and 7 TDs in his last 3 full seasons and could be in line for even more work if Philly winds up trading DeSean Jackson as has been rumored.

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin agreed to terms on a one-year deal worth up to $6 million with $3.5 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: It's a show-me deal for Maclin, who blew out his knee heading into 2013 and was unable to put up a marketable campaign. Maclin joins DeSean Jackson and Riley Cooper to give Nick Foles a formidable receiving corps.

Updating an earlier report, the Philadelphia Eagles are negotiating with WR Jeremy Maclin but are not close to a deal.
Huddle Up: With Philly's flurry of recent moves, including the shiny new 5-year, $25 million deal for fellow wideout Riley Cooper, it increases the likelihood that Maclin might be left as the odd man out.

The Philadelphia Eagles have decided re-signing impending free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin will be a bigger priority than re-signing impending free-agent WR Riley Cooper. The team will look to sign Maclin to a one-year deal and attempt to sign another starting-caliber wide receiver in free agency. The team could be interested in bringing Cooper back if they are not able to find another option.
Huddle Up: There's room for three receivers in Chip Kelly's offense, though with Maclin back in the mix Cooper's numbers--and the amount Philly would be willing to pay him--would dip more than a little. It will be interesting to see how the Philly receiver situation shakes out, as there are plenty of fantasy ramifications.

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) said he likely will not be ready when he signs with a team next month but should be ready for training camp. Maclin said he is happy with how his rehab has been going.
Huddle Up: Maclin's inability to work out for teams might lead him back to Philly, as well as keep his price tag down. But don't sleep on his fantasy prospects in 2014 if he's healthy--especially if he's back in Philly.

The New York Jets are interested in free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Eagles) and WR Emmanuel Sanders (Steelers). Some people in the organization aren't sold on free-agent WR Eric Decker's (Broncos) ability to be a No. 1 receiver.
Huddle Up: Geno Smith needs some targets, and either Maclin or Sanders would step to the fore of the Jets' receiver rotation.

The Philadelphia Eagles have exclusive rights to re-sign WRs Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper before March 11. The 2014 NFL Draft has a group of underclassmen who could make this upcoming draft the deepest at the receiver position in years, and that could affect how the club approaches re-signing Cooper and Maclin. However, a pool of coaches, executives, scouts and agents suggested the team is likely to retain both players unless they opt to test the market.
Huddle Up: It's definitely bad timing for Maclin coming off a knee injury, and it'll be interesting to see if he's willing to test the market coming off a full season on IR.
