And to say he didn't do anything this year:
He got 67 rush, 16 rec 1 td vs Indy D
60 rush, 29 rec vs KC D
and only 38 rush vs SEATTLE D (so it shouldn't really count)
I could see him getting consistently targeted about 4-6 times per.. and a decent option in the redzone.. also expect more consistency from ertz's numbers
foles always seemed to try to get the deep stuff instead of just taking what was right there.. which is the whole point of chip's, pull the defense all over the place.. and get it to the guy with space to do something with it
like in each of the last 2 games sproles had uncharacteristic drops that would have gone a very long way because the defender was already on his hip and trying to make a diving play on him.. and he just dropped it
I'm probably just being optimistic but I'm not seeing the whole Maclin decreasing in value thing...after preseason games and one regular season game with Sanchez he hasn't preformed like he did with Foles, but let's give it some time. He did have some down games with Foles as well. Be patient.
he was still have value.. but I don't see the ball being forced to him 10+ times per like it was with foles..
maclin's value may actually go up because of it, because teams will actually have to account for the other weapons in the offense.. instead of focusing on maclin and McCoy or sproles
but his targets will come down to about 7-9 range.. but I think he'll see more single coverage
ummmm.. I say go Stafford and cooks too..
but I might flip a coin on tannehill, since dolphins wont be able to run.. at least not with their RBs on that bills defense
