After all the blood tests & speculation, we have arrived at the best case scenario: Jeremy Maclin is going to be OK. No cancer, AIDS, sickle-cell, Lyme disease, or any other debilitating illness that was swirling about in chat rooms across the country. It ended up being some kind of inflammatory virus that ran through his body and shed away 15 pounds. Sounds brutal, but anyone would take that over the alternative. Thank God, and not just for the Eagles’ sake. Jeremy Maclin is an all-around good guy on top of being one of the better WRs in the NFL. To be stricken with a life-threatening disease at such a young age would have been devastating. Prayers are with you, Jeremy.

Voodoo Brown
Voodoo Brown started playing fantasy football way back in 1994 — when you had to manually add up scores with the Monday edition of USA Today (yes, that’s how it was done). Since that time, he has amassed 16 championships and 7 runner-ups, with most of his success coming after 2003 (avg. participation of 2-3 leagues per year). These accomplishments are evidence that Voodoo steadily adjusts to the ebbs & flows of the ever-changing fantasy landscape. It’s a different game now than it was in 1994 — hell, even 2004. Rarely finishing as a doormat, Voodoo’s teams are always in the mix. If you want any roster or lineup feedback, you can message him at, or hit him up on Facebook or Twitter (@VoodooBrown)
