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 | 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 PhillyMag.com'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 | Zach Ertz injured

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 11:00:28 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (oblique) suffered an oblique injury in Week 12 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has been a bit inconsistent this season but was coming off a good Week 11 performance. Brent Celek likely would receive more work if Ertz misses time.

Eagles | Zach Ertz needs to block better

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 18:19:16 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz has played 143 fewer snaps than TE Brent Celek this season, and when asked why Ertz wasn't playing as much, head coach Chip Kelly pointed to Celek's superior skills as a run blocker.

Fantasy Tip: While Ertz has the physical tools to be an effective weapon in the passing game, he can't be trusted at FantasyScore as long as he is playing limited snaps.
