Bills | Jordan Matthews listed as questionable

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 14:42:18 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 17, and is listed as questionable for Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews probably has a solid chance to play this week, but owners should check the inactive list to make sure. He will be working with a new quarterback and can be benched this week since he has been disappointing over the last few weeks.

Bills | Jordan Matthews listed as limited

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 12:44:08 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews probably will be able to play this week, but owners should check on his status later in the week to make sure. He will be working with a new quarterback in Week 11, which may hurt his fantasy value. He has been held to under 25 yards in four of the last five games and may only be a flex option in leagues.

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 15:13:50 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews has been a huge disappointment in Buffalo so far, and his fantasy outlook is rather murky with Nathan Peterman taking over under center for the benched Tyrod Taylor.

Bills | Jordan Matthews makes one grab

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 17:11:22 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews had just one catch for 14 yards on two targets in Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews has been a bust in Buffalo, and his fantasy outlook only gets worse now that the team acquired Kelvin Benjamin. Charles Clay is also back from a lengthy injury, so look for Matthews to get worse, not better. He can be safely dropped outside of the deepest fantasy leagues.

Bills | Jordan Matthews quiet in loss

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 21:55:37 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews had six receptions for 46 yards (7.7 yards per catch) against the New York Jets in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Make it four straight games of fewer than eight yards per catch for Matthews, who hasn't had the kind of impact the Bills hoped for. It's possible the arrival of Kelvin Benjamin will open up room for Matthews to operate, but until he actually puts up some decent numbers in a game he should remain glued to your bench.

Bills | Jordan Matthews limited to 21 yards

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 14:46:51 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews posted three receptions for 21 yards in Week 8 against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews has really struggled in his time in Buffalo so far, posting just seven grabs for 41 yards over his past three outings. At this point he is best used as a low-end WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams. The Bills travel to face the Jets in Week 9 on Thursday. Matthews had a season-high 61 yards in Week 1 against New York.

Bills | Jordan Matthews expected to play

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 06:03:21 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) is expected to play in Week 7's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He will be wearing a special glove to protect his right thumb.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews was listed as questionable on the injury report and was a full practice participant Friday, Oct. 20, after being a limited participant in the team's two earlier sessions during the week. Given the matchup, he's worthy of consideration as a WR3 or flex option in deeper fantasy leagues.

Bills | Jordan Matthews practices fully Friday

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 11:11:45 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) was able to practice in full Friday, Oct. 20, and is listed as questionable on the team's Week 7 injury report.

Fantasy Tip: With Charles Clay out indefinitely and no one else besides LeSean McCoy and Nick O'Leary seemingly capable of soaking up targets, Matthews could surprise in fantasy this week if he plays given the matchup. Still, considering the low-volume nature of the Buffalo passing game, Matthews asked to be considered no more than a low-end WR3 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Bills | Jordan Matthews listed as limited

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 12:40:17 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews appears to have a chance to play in Week 7 and probably will be a game-time decision. He probably would be a starter for the Bills if he plays, but his injury could affect his ability to catch the ball. Owners may want to use Matthews a flex option or could bench him if they have better options.

Bills | Jordan Matthews limited in team drills

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 11:16:41 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) has not participated in as many team drills as the team would have liked this week, according to head coach Sean McDermott. McDermott said the team will see how Matthews looks during practice Friday, Oct. 20, before deciding on his Week 7 status.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews could be a game-time decision for Week 7, so owners should continue to monitor the situation. He probably will be a starter for the Bills if he is able to play but may be a flex option in deeper leagues this week.

Bills | Jordan Matthews practicing

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 09:20:24 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) is practicing Thursday, Oct. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews isn't a lock as a starting option in fantasy against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. If you need to cover multiple bye weeks, maybe, but the upside isn't real high until we see the rust is knocked off.

Bills | Jordan Matthews may play this week

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 15:33:26 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) appears to have a chance to play in Week 7, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check later in the week to see if Matthews has any chance to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He will need to show that he can catch passes with his injured thumb. Owners may want to wait a week before considering Matthews as a starting option.

Bills | Jordan Matthews limited in practice

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 13:35:50 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) was cleared to practice Wednesday, Oct. 18, and he was limited as expected.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews has been cleared to play, but it's still uncertain if he'll suit up to face the Buccaneers in Week 7. Give him at least a game or two to knock off any rust before trusting him again as a WR4 or flex option.

Bills | Jordan Matthews cleared

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 07:19:44 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) was cleared to practice Wednesday, Oct. 18, but he'll be limited.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews is iffy to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week. If he's good to go, he's in the flex mix.

Bills | Jordan Mathews still not close to return?

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 10:37:37 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) told reporters he has yet to catch a pass with his right hand since undergoing thumb surgery earlier this month. He noted he has been working with tennis balls instead.

Fantasy Tip: Earlier in the day, head coach Sean McDermott called Matthews "day-to-day," but that appears to be a stretch. As such, it is highly unlikely he'll be ready to take advantage of a favorable matchup versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 7.

Bills | Jordan Matthews likely out a month

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 05:29:33 -0700

Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) is expected to undergo thumb surgery to have a pin inserted, and he could miss a month.

Fantasy Tip: Andre Holmes will likely fill the starting spot, and he could be worth a WR5 pickup to cover a bye week. Zay Jones could also see increased targets as a WR5.

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 16:29:55 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Matthews suffered a thumb injury during the game and was unable to return. His status for Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals is not yet known. Zay Jones and Andre Holmes would likely pick up the slack of Matthews is forced to miss time.

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 12:21:54 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) suffered a thumb injury in Week 4 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews has been a solid option for the Bills in the passing game, but a thumb injury could affect his ability to catch the pass. Owners should look for an update on his status after the game.

Bills | Jordan Matthews targeted five times

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 14:58:39 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews posted three grabs for 61 yards on five targets in Week 3 against the Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: Slowly, but surely, Matthews is starting develop a rapport with Tyrod Taylor. He has been targeted 11 times through three games while posting eight receptions for 152 yards. He has a ways to go before he is a fantasy regular again, but he isn't a terrible WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 4 at Atlanta.

Bills | Buffalo happy with WR corps

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 20:07:30 -0700

Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said he is happy with WR Jordan Matthews, WR Zay Jones and the rest of the receiving corps.

Fantasy Tip: Through two games, Matthews is leading the team in receiving with just 91 yards. The Bills are a run-first team to the extreme, and none of Buffalo's receivers are worth starting in Week 3 against the stingy secondary of the Denver Broncos.

Bills | Jordan Matthews targeted three times

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 15:45:34 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews posted three receptions for 30 yards on his three targets in Week 2 at Carolina.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews saw half of the targets that rookie Zay Jones did, although no one on the Buffalo offense really had a standout day. It will be tough sledding again in Week 3 against the visiting Broncos.

Bills | Jordan Matthews debuts with 61 yards

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 15:44:43 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews caught two passes for 61 yards in a 21-12 win over the New York Jets on Sunday, Sept. 10.

Fantasy Tip: One of his catches was for 47 yards, proving Matthews might have some chemistry with Tyrod Taylor. How will he adjust to life in Buffalo? That's the big question. The trade to Buffalo made Matthews a flex option for starters, but he should move up the charts a little now that the first game is under the belt.

Bills | Jordan Matthews on track to play

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 12:11:02 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known how much Matthews will be used in Week 1 since he has not practiced much since joining the Bills. He probably will receive a few targets in the passing game but probably should not be more than a flex option this week.

Bills | Jordan Matthews fully practices

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 15:10:22 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews has not received a lot of practice time with the Bills since being acquired but should still be a solid part of the passing game against the New York Jets. Matthews could be a flex option for owners this week but should be more valuable as the season goes on.

Bills | Jordan Matthews able to practice fully

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 13:57:47 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) was listed as a full participant for practice on Wednesday, Sept. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews appears to be on target for his debut in the team's opener against the Jets. Matthews failed to find the end zone in his final seven regular season games in Philadelphia. He and rookie Zay Jones are likely to be the biggest fantasy contributors, but they're still nothing more than WR4 or WR5 in deeper leagues.

Bills | Jordan Matthews not cleared yet

Mon, 04 Sep 2017 07:09:45 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) is still not fully cleared Monday, Sept. 4, according to head coach Sean McDermott. He is working in that direction.

Fantasy Tip: He still has time to be ready to line up against the New York Jets in Week 1. Matthews is a WR3 in PPR formats.

Bills | Jordan Matthews should be ready

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 12:12:20 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) is confident he'll be able to play in Week 1, but head coach Sean McDermott remains cautiously optimistic about his new receiver. Matthews said he's been doing everything to get back to full health and is in good shape, adding that the pain he felt in his chest has reduced considerably.

Fantasy Tip: These are the things you want to hear right before a season starts. Matthews enters the 2017 season as underrated despite his status as the Bill's No. 1 wide receiver. If he can develop chemistry with Tyrod Taylor and stay healthy, he can certainly attain WR3 numbers by season's end.

Bills | Jordan Matthews has a shot to play Week 1?

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 09:44:47 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) remains a limited participant in practice, but head coach Sean McDermott told reporters Tuesday, Aug. 29, he is still "cautiously optimistic" Matthews will be ready for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews has yet to practice fully, so he is not exactly out of the woods yet. With rookie Zay Jones and little else on the roster, the Bills could certainly use Matthews in Week 1 against the New York Jets, even if he can only play limited snaps. He's still worth a late-round flyer in deeper leagues as a WR5.

Bills | Jordan Matthews making progress

Thu, 24 Aug 2017 18:46:06 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) participated in individual drills again Thursday, Aug. 24, and is making good progress in his recovery from his chest injury, according to head coach Sean McDermott. Matthews will not play in the third preseason game but is traveling with the team for the game. McDermott said the team does not need to see Matthews play in the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews appears to have a good chance to be ready for the start of the regular season even if he does not play in the preseason. Matthews should be a starter for the Bills this season and could become their top receiver. He has a chance to be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver for fantasy owners.

Bills | Jordan Matthews gets in some individual work

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 11:44:51 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews was dressed in full gear and participated in positions specific drills during the individual portion of practice open to the media Wednesday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews appears to be on track to play Week 1 after suffering a chest injury last week, and he'll likely be cast as a starter opposite rookie Zay Jones if he continues to progress physically. He'll be hard-pressed to be much more than a WR5 in most leagues, however.

Bills | Jordan Matthews on track for opener

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 08:32:43 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) is on schedule for Week 1, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Fantasy Tip: Treat this injury much like you would someone with broken ribs. He can play through it, but it's a pain tolerance issue. One big hit or fall early in the season could put him out of the game. Couple that with Buffalo's struggling offense, and while Matthews has some upside as a WR3, his outlook for the early schedule is murky.

Bills | Jordan Matthews unsure about preseason games

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 17:22:48 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) said he is not sure if he will play in any preseason games because he needs to be smart about his injury but is optimistic about his availability for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews likely will be one of the starting receivers for the Bills this season and could lead the team in receptions if he stays healthy. The Bills likely will be a running team this season, which will hurt Matthews' value. Owners in most leagues probably should consider him a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver.

Bills | Jordan Matthews gets in individual work

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 11:51:55 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) was spotted in a helmet but was not in pads Sunday, Aug. 20, catching passes with the rest of his position group during individual work, according to WGR Sport Radio 550's Sal Capaccio.

Fantasy Tip: It's a promising sign for a player who suffered a chip fracture in his sternum during his first practice with the team last weekend. The injury probably cost Matthews any shot of beginning the season as a starter, but he is trending in the right direction in terms of being able to play against the New York Jets on Sept. 10. He's a WR5 candidate with limited upside for fantasy purposes in Buffalo.

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 08:32:24 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) didn't travel with the team for the second preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: The chip fracture in his chest is a painful one, and he'll have to manage the pain. Matthews' status as a good WR3 in PPR leagues is unchanged.

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 05:21:13 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) has a chip fracture in his sternum, and the team is calling his status "week to week."

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like he'll be ready to go for Week 1. The change of scenery doesn't change his outlook in fantasy a whole lot. He remains a solid WR3 in PPR leagues.

Bills | Jordan Matthews injures chest

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 14:07:20 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) suffered a chest injury during practice Sunday, Aug. 13, but was able to finish practice. He was being evaluated after practice.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to find out the severity of Matthews' injury. He should be a starting receiver this season for the Bills, but owners will have a better understanding of his role when he plays in preseason games. Matthews probably can be considered a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews traded to Buffalo

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 10:32:31 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews was traded along with a 2018 third-round selection to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for CB Ronald Darby on Friday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: The writing has been on the wall regarding Matthews' imminent departure for a while, as Nelson Agholor has been one of the stars of training camp and the offseason in general. Agholor will most likely absorb Matthews' slot role while Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith start on the outside. The Eagles also addressed their woeful secondary by landing Darby, who looked like an up-and-comer as a rookie before disappointing as a sophomore in 2016.

Bills | Buffalo lands Jordan Matthews from Philly

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 10:22:03 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews was traded along with a 2018 third-round selection to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for CB Ronald Darby on Friday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills wasted no time filling the void left behind by the trade of Sammy Watkins. Matthews should have no problem securing a starting job opposite rookie Zay Jones in Buffalo, while Anquan Boldin gives the team a viable option out of the slot in a part-time role. Since it remains to be seen whether or not Tyrod Taylor (or the Bills' offense) can support two starting fantasy receivers, Jones and Matthews could easily settle in as low-end starters in three-receiver leagues.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews on the block?

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 09:25:40 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews remains a candidate to be traded, in part due to the team's unexpected depth at receiver, according to Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski.

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Doug Pederson and offensive coordinator Frank Reich have told the media two different stories about Matthews possibly losing snaps, but the praise surrounding Nelson Agholor has been consistent. Matthews would be an obvious upgrade for the New York Jets, although they would be unlikely to give up much more than a fourth-round pick unless they could get him to agree to an extension. At any rate, Matthews is little more than a late-round flyer at this point.
