Eagles WR Maclin has conditioning issues

Rueben Frank on Twitter - [Full Article]

Eagles coach Andy Reid on WR Jeremy Maclin: "He obviously has to get in better shape."

Wouldn't commit to him being ready by opening day.

Fantasy Impact: 

This shouldn't be a surprise. Reports had him losing 15 pounds from mono in the offseason and not being able to work out through training camp. The Eagles claimed he'd be ready by the start of the season, but it didn't take much to realize it may take into the season before he was able to play. Maclin's status as a very solid WR2 is slipping. He's still worth drafting, but the later you can get him the better because he may not pay off until well into the season.
