Maclin caught just three passes for 29 yards on seven targets Sunday against the Chargers. Despite being the undisputed top receiver for the Chiefs, Maclin has now had four straight games in which he only has three grabs, and he hasn't broken 50 yards receiving over that stretch. Given his production of late, it's tough to consider him a fantasy lock anymore, and it seems likely he'll see a heavy dose of Stephon Gilmore next week against the Bills, which could present another challenge for him to break the recent trend.
Maclin caught just 3-of-6 targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 29-13 win at Denver. The Broncos were playing without Aqib Talib, but Maclin still had to deal with CB Chris Harris, who is arguably having a better season than Talib. While Maclin has been relatively productive this season, he's made just nine catches in his last three games and has just two touchdowns on the year. On a positive note, the schedule looks favorable for Kansas City's passing attack over the final seven games of the season, including a juicy matchup against Baltimore in Week 15. Next week, he and the Chiefs will face the Chargers in San Diego.
Maclin had three catches on five targets for 35 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Lions in London. Maclin was having a fairly mediocre day before catching a 17-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Alex Smith in the fourth quarter to make it 38-3. Smith doesn't throw the ball a ton, and Sunday's performance was just his second all season with multiple touchdown passes, so while Maclin is the clear No. 1 wideout in Kansas City, he doesn't have nearly the upside as many other top options. Up next is a tough Week 10 matchup against the Broncos following the Chiefs' Week 9 bye.
Maclin (concussion) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Lions in London, ESPN's Adam Teicher reports. Maclin returns to the lineup following a one-game absence and as the Chiefs' No. 1 wideout, he's a candidate to see a decent amount of targets -- along with TE Travis Kelce - in the team's Week 8 offense.
Maclin (concussion) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Lions. Maclin has been a full participant in practice this week and already cleared the league's concussion protocol last week, so it appears he's poised to return to action come Sunday. While his active status will have to be confirmed, Maclin's matchup against the Lions appears favorable for fantasy owners.
