Ugh… the matchup that we loved for him last week out of the slot was exploited, just not by him. Wallace plays a few snaps out of the slot and it just so happens that he scored a touchdown on one of them. That's going to happen from time to time. Maclin has still seen at least five targets in each of his last seven games, combined with his talent typically means good things for fantasy owners. The Texans have now allowed 16 touchdowns in their last six games, including eight wide receiver touchdowns in their last four games. Slot receiver Larry Fitzgerald dominated them last week for nine catches, 91 yards, and a touchdown with targets coming from Blaine Gabbert. Maclin deserves serious consideration as your WR3 this week. Knowing that the Falcons have struggled a bit with speedy wide receivers obviously gives Jackson some additional attention in fantasy lineups, though it hurts that Fitzpatrick is still under center. On attempts over 20 yards this season, he's completed just 6-of-16 passes with one touchdown and two interceptions. He doesn't have the arm strength to let Jackson run under it, leading me to think of him as a WR3 who has limited upside.

 Jackson does not have much deep threat ability with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick behind center, he will be a boom / bust WR3 against the Falcons sixth ranked fantasy receiver defense.
