Jeremy Maclin: "I'm 100 percent fine now." - [Full Article]

Seemingly on the verge of a breakout season, Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin has been inconsistent through the first six games. He enters Week 8 with 20 receptions for 295 yards and three touchdowns, although 13 of those catches and 226 of those yards came in two games. A hip pointer that bothered Maclin in Week 2 and sidelined him in Week 3 slowed him down, and now Maclin needs to average more than 77 yards per game if he hopes to record his first 1,000-yard season.

"I've just got to remain patient," Maclin said. "I battled the hip injury, but I'm 100-percent fine now. I'll continue to go out there and be available when the team needs me."

Fantasy Impact: 

After just six catches for 46 yards against the Giants and the Steelers in Weeks 4-5, Maclin busted out with 6-130-1 against the Lions in Week 6. It appears that his injury issues are behind him.
