yeah, Maclin showed flashes early on, but never progressed further, he and Eddie Royal were supposed to be the newest things (now he really fell off). He is a guy thats going to get around 800 yards most years, which is above average for a number 2 receiver imo (not in fantasy terms but regular football terms), Cooper is on a whole different level. He always had the potential, right now he is living up to it, lets just hope he continues to, last time he filled in he averaged 70 yards per start, which is over 1k for a 16 game season, he is doing much better than that.Maclin is one of the more overrated WRs in the game, especially fantasy wise. He just doesn't produce they way his hype suggests.
Rotoworld now laughably suggests Riley Cooper is on the "WR3" radar. At least knowledgeable fantasy football players realize how ridiculous they are.
If Cooper isn't a "WR1" right now, who is?
who cares what rotoworld has to say, their bias is so ridiculous I don't even have words to describe it, hes my number 1 receiver now and I have been holding on to him in a few leagues where I was able to grab him.
Jordy was my number 1 receiver, but I guess he is number 2 now, because he has been putting up less than Cooper. Its hasn't been as exciting (although more of a challenge) with pretty much EVERY White player being taken in the caste leagues (was able to grab Kuechly and Alsono back to back drafts), so I joined a yahoo one, their first year doing idp. Winning has been easy with an all White team. I had to use a black player one week only. You only need one rb, then a wr/te and rb/wr/te which makes it easy on offense.
