Eagles | Chip Kelly favors one-cut runners

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 06:58:57 -0700

The Philadelphia Eagles traded RB LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills because head coach Chip Kelly desires a one-cut running back, according to Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie. Lurie praised McCoy as a player, but the move was not financially driven. Kelly felt he could garner more production from a different running back or two. Lurie used the term "power spread" on multiple occasions to describe Kelly's offense. RBs DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles and Ryan Mathews figure to share the work.

Fantasy Tip: Murray was one of the best players in fantasy last season, but there's almost no way he can repeat that kind of performance with two other legit backs wanting the ball. With Sproles an elite receiver from the RB position, Murray may find it difficult to repeat his 57 receptions from a year ago. Murray still rates as a mid-to-low RB1. Sproles is a capable RB3 in PPR leagues. Mathews' role is a little cloudy, but he is likely a low-end RB3 for now.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews will sign with PHI

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 13:48:29 -0700

Free-agent RB Ryan Mathews (Chargers) will indeed sign with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews will team up with newly acquired RB DeMarco Murray and RB Darren Sproles. Mathews' fantasy value will obviously be limited as Murray will likely be the starter. He should be considered a flex play unless Murray gets injured.

Raiders | Oakland high on Ryan Mathews

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 09:34:29 -0700

Free-agent RB Ryan Mathews (Chargers) has always had a suitor in the Oakland Raiders. Mathews agreed to a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles Wednesday, March 11, but he has yet to officially sign.

Fantasy Tip: It's not a done deal that Mathews goes to the Eagles, as he may change his mind if DeMarco Murray signs there. A move to Oakland would also pair him with a Murray in the backfield in Latavius Murray. Mathews' fantasy value is in flux right now, and it'll depend on where he signs. Stay tuned.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews yet to sign with Philly

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 09:17:13 -0700

Free-agent RB Ryan Mathews (Chargers) agreed to a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles Wednesday, March 11, but he hasn't signed it yet. It's unknown if he'll go through and sign if the Eagles sign free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Cowboys).

Fantasy Tip: Hold your horses here on Mathews, folks. It's not a done deal, and he could change his mind if he sees that Murray is coming aboard. It would sure be a crowded backfield in Philly if it included Murray, Mathews and Darren Sproles. Mathews' fantasy value could vary wildly depending on what happens with this situation. Stay tuned.

Eagles | Philly still pursuing DeMarco Murray

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 11:23:44 -0700

Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Cowboys) is still being pursued by the Philadelphia Eagles, even though they just signed RB Ryan Mathews.

Fantasy Tip: Assuming he can stay healthy, Murray should be considered a No. 1 running back wherever he lands. If he were to join the Eagles, he would be joining a backfield that is becoming crowded with Mathews and Darren Sproles, so there may be some risk involved from a fantasy football perspective.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews agrees with Eagles

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 11:04:05 -0700

Free-agent RB Ryan Mathews (Chargers) has agreed to terms with the Philadelphia Eagles on a three-year, $11.5 million deal Wednesday, March 11, according to a source. The deal includes $5 million in guarantees.

Fantasy Tip: The Eagles are now banking on an oft-injured quarterback (Sam Bradford) and oft-injured running back in Mathews. It's quite the risk, but the upside is intriguing if they can both stay healthy. Because Mathews has been brittle, expect the Eagles to mix and match Darren Sproles and Chris Polk plenty in the backfield. Mathews should be valued as an RB3 with upside for more in this high-octane offense.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews likely to join Eagles

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 07:24:55 -0700

Updating an earlier report, free-agent RB Ryan Mathews (Chargers) is likely to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles Wednesday, March 11.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews could be a low-end RB2, but he's better served as a high-end RB3. He doesn't play on third downs, receive many red zone looks or catch a lot of passes. The latter could change in this offense, but we're not jumping out of our seats to take him as a second back.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews to visit Philadelphia

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 05:57:16 -0700

Free-agent RB Ryan Mathews (Chargers) will visit the Philadelphia Eagles Wednesday, March 11.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews doesn't play on third downs or catch a lot of passes, but he has enough talent to carve a niche in Chip Kelly's system. He will likely be a RB3 wherever he lands.
