2016 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Aug-04-2016 by Shawn Childs


I shied away from Maclin in 2015 due to concern that Chiefs' offense wouldn't produce enough chances for a WR as a result of low passing attempts. His targets (124 in 15 games) were well below the elite WRs in the game, but Jeremy had an elite catch rate (70.2) leading to a career-high in catches (87). Overall, he had his second straight season with 1000+ yards with strength in TDs (8). In his career, Maclin averaged 4.8 catches per game for 65.1 yards and 0.49 TDs per game or about 14.3 Fantasy points per game in PPR leagues. Jeremy had three games with 100+ receiving yards (two with Charles on the field) and six games with double-digit targets. He scored six TDs in the last six games of the regular season as his chemistry with Alex Smith improved with each game played. Maclin missed Week 7 due a concussion while also battling an ankle issue late in the season. His opportunity projects as a WR2 while offering a wide range of results from game to game. I like what I saw from him in this offense in 2015, and I expect continued growth in 2016. His next step should be 90+ catches for 1300+ yards and possible double-digit TDs.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
3.09 Matt De Lima - After drafting two RBs, it's time to select my WR1. Maclin is pretty much the only WR on the Chiefs so if he's healthy, he'll produce.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
4.01 Fantasy Guru - Tom Brolley - I needed to load up at WR, and I decided to go with a steadier option in Maclin after taking Watkins, who is more of a boom-or-bust option, just before him.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
3.05 Cowboys HQ - Matthew Postins - Maclin put up his second 1,000-yard season and had 87 receptions on 124 targets. The Chiefs are only marginally improved their receivers, so he's the No. 1 target again.
