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.

Eagles | DeMarco Murray, Ryan Mathews to get FB

Sat, 23 Jan 2016 15:55:31 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RBs DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews are expected to have company in the backfield in 2016, as head coach Doug Pederson has liked to have a fullback on the roster and use him to block in the running game.

Fantasy Tip: Murray might especially benefit from a more power running game attack, similar to his last years in Dallas. He could be a big-time fantasy sleeper, as some stay away from him from a lack of production in 2015 under the old regime. Mathews will once again be a solid handcuff and mid- to late-round fantasy pick if and when Murray goes down.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews to sit about six weeks

Mon, 11 Jan 2016 11:12:50 -0800

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (groin) is expected to be sidelined around six weeks after he recently underwent surgery, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews probably will be able to participate in some of the offseason workouts but will not be rushed back on the field. Mathews probably will have a similar role on offense next season and could be a middle- to late-round pick in most leagues.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews undergoes surgery

Mon, 11 Jan 2016 10:19:33 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (groin) recently underwent groin surgery, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews probably will miss some of the offseason workouts but should be ready for training camp if he does not suffer a setback. Mathews finished the 2015 season with 539 rushing yards and 146 receiving yards with seven total touchdowns. He may have a similar role next season and could be a middle- to late-round option in most drafts.
