Kansas City Chiefs are getting creative with Jeremy Maclin

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Good point here from Rotoworld's Evan Silva on how the Kansas City Chiefs are using Jeremy Maclin.

In short, Maclin has lined up everywhere. The advantage he has as opposed to other newcomers is that he knows Andy Reid's offense having spent time in it in Philadelphia. That means Maclin can step right in and play numerous positions.

This also speaks to why it's so difficult for a young receiver in Andy Reid's offense. They have to know every receiver position on the field and be able to line up in any of them and execute. The Chiefs can move their receivers around to get the best matchup on the field. This is part of the reason I wasn't really expecting a whole lot from Chris Conley in the preseason -- he's new and missed a couple weeks of camp. He is a smart dude but he still has a lot to learn.

Keep an eye on Maclin on Friday to count the number of ways the Chiefs use him.
