Updated Fantasy Football WR Rankings

What a season Jeremy Maclin has had huh?!  Returning from an ACL tear is never easy, and pushed his rankings way down as he joined a Chip Kelly system he had yet to play it, with a QB in Nick Foles (now Mark Sanchez) whom he had never played a snap with!  He has gained 100+ yards in four games this season (3 with Sanchez) and scored multiple touchdowns twice.

Make sure you put a waiver claim in on Jarvis Landry (41% owned Yahoo) if he is still available.  He has caught at least 5 passes in 5 straight games for the Miami Dolphins and beat out Mike Wallace for most fantasy points in 3 straight weeks, and 4 of the last 5!  He will make a great insurance policy to your WR/Flex position!
