The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Wednesday that the club has signed wide receiver Jeremy Maclin.
Rapoport reported that the deal was worth $11 million per season. Maclin was the #9 wide receiver in both standard and PPR formats last season. However, he did most of his damage in the first eight games (46-801-8, #2 WR) and faded from Week 10 on (40-528-2, #23 WR). His targets dropped from 10.5 per game in the first half of the season to just 7.5 T/G down the stretch, but this decrease basically coincided with Mark Sanchez taking over for Nick Foles at quarterback. Now he’ll have Alex Smith as his quarterback and should see plenty targets alongside up-and-coming TE Travis Kelce. HC Andy Reid is very familiar with Maclin, so we would expect his transition to be a smooth one, though this appears to be a system downgrade. Maclin averaged 4.6 catches for 61 yards and 0.50 TD (solid WR2-type numbers) from 2010-2012, while playing for Reid.

Week 17 - Sanchez vs. NY Giants
Mark Sanchez put together a nice fantasy outing last week, throwing for 374 yards and two more TDs, but did throw a costly INT. He added 22 rushing yards but did fumble. He's now turned the ball over 13 times in eight games played this year.
The 374 yards is the most he's thrown for this season and the two TDs gave him 12 in eight games, but the turnovers continue to leave points, both real and fantasy, on the field. Reports say Sanchez will start against the Giants in Week 17. It's a nice matchup as the G-men are near the bottom of the league in allowing fantasy points to QBs. It's not out of the question Matt Barkley gets some work, especially with Sanchez entering free agency after the season. The Birds may want to get a look at Barkley. But for now, the team says Sanchez will start.
