Eagles | Ryan Mathews placed on NFI list

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 13:23:24 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) was placed on the Non-Football Injury list Wednesday, July 27, after injuring his ankle while training last week. The team also signed undrafted free-agent WR David Watford (Hampton). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews' injury does not appear to be serious, so he probably will participate in practice in the near future. He is probably the leading candidate to start this season but should lose some snaps to Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood during the season. Mathews can be a No. 2 running back in some fantasy leagues but is a risky option because of his injury history.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews not a great fit in offense

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 23:58:58 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews isn't a great fit in head coach Doug Pederson's offense as he wants to move his backs around to create mismatches for opposing defenses in the passing game.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews has never been a good receiver, and he has often been a two-down back. Mathews averaged 5.1 yards per carry last season, but he has had durability issues. With Darren Sproles likely to play on third downs and passing situations, Mathews is a high-end RB3 in fantasy. Sproles is a low-end RB3 in PPR leagues.

Eagles | Durability concerns for Ryan Mathews

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 20:54:51 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews has played in all 16 games in just one of his six NFL seasons, averaging 12 games per year overall.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews could easily produce RB2 numbers when healthy, but you have to expect him to miss at least a few games. Wendell Smallwood could benefit if Mathews does miss time, making him a sneaky, late-round stash.

Eagles | Running back committee in Philly?

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 12:12:05 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews has taken most of the first-team repetitions out of the backfield this offseason, but RBs Kenjon Barner and Darren Sproles shared those reps with Mathews, too. Head coach Doug Pederson expects a committee with those three backs and RB Wendell Smallwood.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews should still be the first Philadelphia running back taken in fantasy drafts, at least for standard formats. Sproles is a PPR delight and is worth a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 spot in those formats.

Eagles | Kenjon Barner working with starters

Mon, 30 May 2016 02:51:57 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner has been working with the starters during OTAs with RB Ryan Mathews (groin) slowed by injury and RB Darren Sproles not participating, and beat writer Eliot Shorr-Parks believes Barner's edge over Mathews in speed and agility could earn him the starting job permanently.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews could still end up seeing a lot of the early-down work, but Barner is worth grabbing in the later rounds, especially in PPR leagues. He could end up being a sneaky flex option.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews sitting out

Tue, 24 May 2016 07:47:43 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (illness) is out of practice Tuesday, May 24, due to illness.

Fantasy Tip: With all the buzz hovering over the quarterback situation, something that hasn't had much of a spotlight on it is that Mathews is in line to see the bulk of the work in the backfield. The team traded DeMarco Murray, and trade rumors surround Darren Sproles. Mathews could wind up a low-end RB2 in PPR leagues.

Eagles | Darren Sproles to be traded?

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 10:50:05 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles could be traded this offseason, in the opinion of NJ.com's Elliot Shorr-Parks. Shorr-Parks views Sproles as a logical and likely trade candidate, with Ryan Mathews and Kenjon Barner as the two running backs who will make the final roster.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles would be a valuable asset to any NFL backfield, and it would make sense for the Eagles to trade him if they want another draft pick after trading away so many for the No. 2 overall pick this year. Mathews figures to be the primary ball carrier for now, and he has RB2 upside if he can stay healthy.

Eagles | Two teams interested in Ryan Mathews

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 09:16:47 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews is a player the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys are interested in if the Eagles make him available. Sources said it's unlikely the Eagles would trade him to a division rival in Dallas or their former head coach Chip Kelly's new team in San Francisco.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews is a solid RB3 in PPR formats. His outlook will change drastically, though, if the team selects Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott at No. 8.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews could see boost in value

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 17:03:25 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews likely will generate more fantasy value if he stays with the Eagles because of the impending trade of RB DeMarco Murray.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews is in line to receive a majority of the work at running back if he stays with the team. He should be given the opportunity to produce in the running and passing game under head coach Doug Pederson. Mathews probably would be a No. 2 running back in most leagues next season and could have even more value in point-per-reception leagues because of his potential role in the passing game.

Eagles | Two Philly running backs available

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 11:52:42 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews is also available via trade, for the right price, in addition to RB DeMarco Murray.

Fantasy Tip: Murray's displeasure and lack of production with the Eagles have been well chronicled, but Mathews' availability is kind of a surprise. There is a new regime in town now, though, and they may want to start over, except for Sam Bradford of course. Darren Sproles may stay, too, and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 in PPR leagues.
