Jeremy Maclin was expected to see an increased workload when DeSean Jackson went to IR, but that hasn’t been the case. Maclin has totaled a mere 12 targets in his last two games total, a number he reached against the Cowboys less than a month ago. Maclin isn’t a player I feel comfortable with for the rest of the season, as he isn’t much of a threat to score and this offense isn’t capable of putting up enough yardage to make any receiver useful. LeSean McCoy is one of the best play makers in the game, and we all knew he’d have a great impact on the fantasy football playoffs. However, his role will be watching Bryce Brown, as the Eagles have no reason to risk the health of McCoy this week against Tampa Bay, or the rest of the season for that matter. Brown has been the best back in the NFL over the last two weeks, with the only flaw being his inability to take care of the ball. While fumbles are concerning, they are not paralyzing in the fantasy world. With Nick Foles the QB for the rest of the season, the Eagles are very likely to continue running the ball, allowing Brown to maintain his fantasy value. Brown may not be an elite back next season, but he will be heard from in this seasons fantasy playoffs.
