With the loss of DeSean Jackson and Jason Avant, the Eagles appear to be thin at wide receiver heading into the 2014 season. Jeremy Maclin is back from a torn ACL to pair with Riley Cooper. Arrelious Benn is also competing against second-round pick Jordan Matthews from Vanderbilt and third-round pick Josh Huff from Oregon.

Ifeanyi Momah is also in the mix with some others, including free agent Quron Pratt, who is wearing the No. 10 jersey formerly donned by Jackson.

"I'm doing everything now that I was doing before I got hurt," Maclin told the Press of Atlantic City. "I feel like I'm all the way back."

Fantasy Impact: 

Cooper had 47 receptions for 835 yards and eight touchdowns last season. He improved steadily as the season continued but many feel the loss of Jackson will hurt Cooper's production. Matthews and Huff have impressed coach Chip Kelly through OTAs and they could definitely receive snaps early in the regular season, according to the story.
