News: With DeSean Jackson having been released, Maclin may need to serve as Philadelphia's No. 1 receiver in 2013.
Impact: Riley Cooper might have a head start in the Chip Kelly offense since Maclin tore his ACL in July, but Maclin is the more talented player and should take the lead over Cooper in a hurry so long as his knee holds up. The exits of Jackson and Jason Avant from Philadelphia create a void of 202 targets from last year's offense, and while second-year tight end Zach Ertz and recent trade acquisition Darren Sproles will gobble up some of those targets, Maclin isn't a bad bet to approach the 126 targets Jackson saw in 2013. Maclin should safely provide top-40 WR value in 2014 with a little injury luck.
