- •Jeremy Maclin, WR, KCAfter being active in Week 9 with a groin injury, Maclin promptly aggravated the injury causing him to be shut out on just one target. It’s difficult to think that he’ll be close to full health anytime soon, but even so, his production hasn’t been acceptable for most of the season. Since Week 2, he’s only reached 50 receiving yards a single time while scoring just once during that span. In addition, he's seen eight or fewer targets in all but two games.
- •Marvin Jones, WR, DETJones has had one of the most improbable in-season slides in recent memory. On the heels of looking like a fantasy MVP after compiling 482 yards and two touchdowns over the first four weeks of the season, he scored an additional two times while seeing his yardage fall off in Weeks 5 and 6. Despite the overall success he’s had this year, he’s now been held to fewer than 40 yards in four of his last five games, and it’s looking as if he’s settling in as a WR3 for fantasy purposes.
- •Jarvis Landry, WR, MIAThe emergence of Jay Ajayi has had a more direct impact on Landry than just about any other Dolphin because the receiver was frequently used on pass patterns that made him an extension of the rushing attack. However, now that Miami has a potentially dynamic rushing attack, it’s difficult to think that he’ll go back to seeing the double-digit target totals that he’s seen for most of his young career.
- •Jerick McKinnon, RB, MINAveraging 3.0 yards per carry is no way to hang onto any type of prominent role in an NFL backfield, and that was evidenced by the Vikings giving pretty much equal work to McKinnon, Matt Asiata and Ronnie Hillman against the Lions. While McKinnon picked up just eight yards on seven carries, Hillman looked better with his ability to get the ball to the edge of the leaky Vikings offensive line to produce a pair of big plays.
