Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin expects to see a lot of CB Richard Sherman in Week 14

Philly.com - [Full Article]

Jeremy Maclin plays wide receiver on the right side for the Eagles. Richard Sherman plays cornerback on the left side for the Seahawks. That means Maclin will likely see much of Sherman on Sunday.

"I guess we'll see," Maclin said. "I saw him follow Dez [Bryant] a little bit. For the most part, we kind of stay on one side as receivers, and he's on my side."
Maclin complimented the Seahawks' secondary, but he has always contended that he's confident he can get open in man-to-man coverage. That does not change this week.

"I like my chances against anybody," Maclin said.

Fantasy Impact: 

Sherman is one of the league's top cornerbacks, so this is a matchup that Maclin owners should be aware of heading into Week 14. Given his play, he's still startable, but owners would be wise to lower their expectations given the matchup.
