Eagles | Jordan Matthews staying in slot

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 05:45:47 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews is likely to remain in the slot this season, but he may play in some two-receiver sets on the outside. "I've been doing some of both (in the slot and outside,]" Matthews said. "But I'm going to do whatever the coaches want me to do, man. Shoot, if they want to put me at running back, I'll go and do it."

Fantasy Tip: Matthews is a good WR2 in fantasy and figures to be very active as the lead option at receiver.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews continues to impress

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 18:26:18 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews was "the best player on the field" during joint practices with the Baltimore Ravens, according to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that Matthews earned such high praise from an opposing team's beat writer is a good sign that he really is poised for a big sophomore season as he prepares for a larger role in the offense. He is worth taking a chance on as a mid-range WR2.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews has strong day

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 18:22:09 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews was a standout in practice Tuesday, Aug. 4. Matthews had most of his receptions on passes thrown by QB Sam Bradford, and he was most effective in the slot.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews is expected to receive more play on the outside in 2015 than he did in his rookie season, but it's very difficult to justify removing him from the slot position where he's been so effective. Matthews enters the season with plenty of upside, making him a trendy pick as a WR2.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez holding workouts

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 09:40:16 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez is hosting workouts in San Diego with teammates. RB Darren Sproles, RB Ryan Mathews, WR Jordan Matthews, QB Matt Barkley, QB/WR G.J. Kinne, WR Quron Pratt, WR Rasheed Bailey, WR Seyi Ajirotutu and TE Andrew Gleichert were in attendance.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez is likely to take a backseat once Sam Bradford returns to health, but he's not going to make it easy. Sanchez doesn't have as much upside as Bradford, but he'd be a midrange QB2 if he is able to nab the starting job.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews to have bigger role

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 10:52:50 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews said the team won't really have a designated No. 1 receiver in place to replace the production that will be lost with WR Jeremy Maclin signing with the Kansas City Chiefs. "People ask me about being the No. 1 wide receiver; Forget it," Matthews said. "I want us to be a receiving corps. That's what I want it to be." Matthews was the team's second leading receiver in 2014 with 67 catches for 872 yards and eight touchdowns as the slot receiver. Matthews is likely to play more in 2015 and on the outside. Head coach Chip Kelly said he sees Matthews playing "a lot of different spots." Kelly is confident in Matthews and WR Josh Huff, and TE Zach Ertz and RB Darren Sproles could be used more in the passing game.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews should be in line for more production, at least in catches and yardage in 2015. He'll have a much more gifted quarterback in Sam Bradford throwing him passes, too. In Kelly's offense, though, there's opportunity for Huff and Riley Cooper to be successful in the right matchups.

Eagles | PHI confident in young receivers

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 14:37:40 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WRs Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff will forcibly have increased roles in 2015 with the departure of WR Jeremy Maclin to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Philadelphia staff is reportedly confident enough in the development of the two receivers, as well as second-year TE Zach Ertz.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews will be the receiver to own in Philadelphia this season. He came on strong with QB Mark Sanchez last year, but will have a new quarterback in Sam Bradford this year. Huff still has much to prove, but the talent and potential are there, possibly giving him sleeper appeal in this year's drafts.

Eagles | Zach Ertz to play more in 2015?

Mon, 26 Jan 2015 18:45:45 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz ranked ninth among tight ends in 2014 with 293 receiving yards out of the slot, but's Sheil Kapadia believes Ertz could see more time in the slot next year if WR Jordan Matthews spends more time outside.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz's production fluctuated throughout the year, but he showcased his pass-catching skills on multiple occasions. If he does end up in the slot more often, he will be a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses. He makes a nice upside pick at the tight end spot next year.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews' role to expand?

Mon, 26 Jan 2015 17:56:13 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews played 65% of the offensive snaps and ran 92.4% of his routes from the slot in 2014, per Pro That was the role Eagles head coach Chip Kelly envisioned him in when the club drafted him last year. However, according to's Sheil Kapadia, the team could benefit from expanding Matthews' role by playing him outside more in two-wide receiver sets while keeping in him in the slot when the Eagles use three or more wide receivers.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews had a solid rookie season that flew a bit under the radar due to the great seasons of some of his rookie wide receiver peers. Anything that would expand Matthews' role would increase his 2015 value. As a second-year wide receiver in Eagles head coach Chip Kelly's high-octane offense, he already makes for a WR3 with upside.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews caught 8 passes for 105 yards and 1 touchdown catch in Week 17 against the New York Giants. Matthews completed the year with 67 receptions, 872 yards and 8 touchdown receptions.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews will cost a pretty penny in 2015 fantasy football drafts, especially if Jeremy Maclin leaves via free agency.
