Eagles | Rueben Randle the No. 2 receiver?

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 10:42:19 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Rueben Randle is listed as the No. 2 wide receiver behind WR Jordan Matthews, with WR Nelson Agholor listed as the No. 3 receiver, according to NJ.com's Eliot Shorr-Parks.

Fantasy Tip: Agholor has had a tumultuous offseason on and off the field, so Randle being dubbed the No. 2 wide receiver here isn't shocking. If Agholor can get his act together he could definitely end up as the No. 2 receiver, though. For now, Agholor should be taken as a WR4, while Randle is best drafted as a WR5.

Eagles | Sam Bradford working out with teammates

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 15:30:17 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is working out with several of his teammates in San Diego leading up to training camp. QBs Chase Daniel and Carson Wentz, RB Darren Sproles, WRs Jordan Matthews, Josh Huff, T.J. Graham and Rueben Randle and TE Zach Ertz are among the players participating in the workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is trying to build chemistry with his receivers so they can start the season off strong. Bradford should only be considered as a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues. Matthews and Ertz will be among the leaders in targets for the Eagles this season and likely will be selected in the middle rounds of drafts. Sproles should have a role in the running and passing game in 2016 and could be a late-round option who will have more value in point-per-reception leagues. Huff and Randle are only late-round options in deeper leagues.

Eagles | Coach sees Jordan Matthews as slot WR

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 10:17:05 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews appears to play better as a slot receiver as opposed to lining up on the outside, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews is coming off a solid 2015 season when he recorded 85 receptions for 997 yards and eight touchdowns. He likely would still be on the field most of the time if he is a slot receiver and should be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Eagles | Sam Bradford to work out with teammates

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 10:58:43 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford said he plans to work out with several of the skill players during the first week in July in order to work on their timing leading up to training camp. WRs Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor and Chris Givens are among the players that will be part of the workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford will try to improve his chemistry with some of the receivers before the start of camp. He will be the starting quarterback this season but probably will not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

49ers | Bruce Ellington could thrive in slot

Mon, 30 May 2016 03:27:21 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Bruce Ellington will have a chance to play in the slot in 2016, and Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews caught 16 touchdowns working mainly from the slot in the two seasons with Chip Kelly as his head coach.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington still has to secure a starting role, but he has the speed to be a problem in open space. Kelly’s system has made fantasy starts out of unheralded players in the past, so Ellington could be a useful addition in the later rounds, particularly in PPR leagues.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews has rapport with Bradford

Thu, 19 May 2016 09:58:20 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews flew to Oklahoma in March to work with QB Sam Bradford, and Matthews is OK with Bradford's trade request earlier in the offseason.

"If I'm cool with it, then everybody should be cool with it," Matthews said. "Look, if I want to be here, and I'm happy with it, and we can go out there and just compete, that's all I want to focus on. That's all that matters."

Fantasy Tip: Matthews had a decent 85-997-8 season last year, but he was really hamstrung by the absence of a legitimate target opposite of him. Rueben Randle and Chris Givens should help deter double coverages from him. Matthews is a high-end WR2 in fantasy, while Bradford's fragility makes him a low-end QB2.

Eagles | Nelson Agholor ready to prove himself

Thu, 05 May 2016 19:47:53 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor said he knows he has something to prove after a disappointing rookie season, and WR Jordan Matthews said Agholor's ankle injury robbed him of his explosiveness and contributed to his struggles.

Fantasy Tip: The Eagles have several options behind Matthews, but Agholor has the most upside. Draft him as a WR5 and hope he starts to realize his potential.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews to play more outside

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 16:59:36 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews said he will play more on the outside during organized team activities.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews has primarily played from the slot, and more outside snaps in the offseason won't necessarily result in more outside snaps in the regular season. He has the talent and size to play from any position, but right now it's unclear who will be throwing to him. If he stays healthy, though, he can attain WR2 status.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews to try outside sets

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 06:44:30 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews will line up outside some in training camp, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews had a decent 85-997-8 season last year but would really benefit from another weapon or two on offense. He's a high-end WR2 in fantasy.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews to move from slot?

Sat, 23 Jan 2016 15:54:24 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews was one of the biggest slot receivers in the league under former head coach Chip Kelly. Beat writer Dave Spadaro suggests Matthews might be moved to the outside now, as Matthews absorbed a lot of shots in the middle of the field working in the slot, and the team could try to work him more into free space.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews is a very good player and will be productive wherever he lines up on the field. It wouldn't be shocking to see the big target outside. While his reception totals could decrease slightly with a move to the outside, his yardage totals and long scoring chances could increase.
